Summer Super Draft Comp - Round 8 - Sat Mar 5 - selection thread


Recommended Posts

ROUND 8 - Sat Mar 5

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Randwick being under considerable threat of abandonment I have included 4 substitute races at Flemington. You need to select for the substitute races before the normal closing time. The races are scheduled chronologically to slot in to the original 1-10 race schedule. please annotate the substitute race selections as 3a, 7a, 9a, etc. If Randwick is abandoned in mid-program these races will come straight into play.

Most eyes will be on the Mr Aybees this week as they look to prevent Offngone from wrapping up the Summer Comp a week early. It looks a tough task but each of the Aybee lineup are capable of an outstanding score on their day. Magnificent Seven club members Rees and Lightning Blue face off in the glamour HTH. C'mon Aybees, everyone is cheering for ya !

Surf N Turf need nothing less than a 5-zip crushing of the Max Factors to keep their hopes alive and I'm expecting some sort of team strategy to manifest. The Maxis have more wins than anyone in the comp so they will be sure to put up a strong fight.

The Grim Reapers (still with a Joker in hand), are another side needing no less than a whitewash (or should that be "greywash"), against the Grey Ways (also holding a Joker), who face the challenge of escaping the cellar before the comp ends. Thank goodness Roland & Jen didn't draw each other !

The Hot Baches and Wurzels are level on points and are looking to each try and secure the runner-up spot in the comp. Sure to be a close one. Expecting the Wurzels to bounce back by a whisker....

Finally The Yahabebees have a difficult task deciding which match to take on for their Bye Round opponents. I'm expecting something "left field' from Howie !.
