Round 7 - Sat Oct 22

This is it ! The last chance to secure a Finals spot. The Chiefs are home and hosed while The Magpies can't make it but the other 6 teams are scrapping over the 3 remaining Finals berths.

Most attention will focus on the Ferdies (playing their Joker) vs Swamp Foxes separated by just two points and a yawning chasm of aggregate in The Foxes favour.

Perhaps even more intensely focused is the Battle of Wellsford where the Blues and Kauri Kats also separated by two points will face off in a naked, Joker-less slog-fest with the loser almost certainly missing out on the Finals.

And then there's the Otago Highlanders who need some advice from Ed Hillary given the mountain they have to climb ! They need a wildly successful Joker play with maximum points against the table-topping Waikato Chiefs crew (hey they lost last week!) AND The Swamp Foxes to lose to The Ferdies without taking a point, AND The Blues to defeat the Kauri Kats (who must fail to score a point) without taking a bonus point. Hey, it could happen !

Meanwhile.....The Turbos will be putting on their helmets to withstand a bitter Magpie outfit looking to bomb some vengeance after missing out on the Finals. The Turbos would not want to come away "pointless" from this encounter given there are 4 other teams on their tails within 4 points. A loss without a bonus point could leave them very exposed. Underestimate Ian and crew at your peril.

Some great races to end the Round Robin with 6 at 2000m or more, mirroring this comp which is a staying contest of sorts, including two beyond 2400m. We end the day with the two big features. Sure to be a smorgasbord of top horses and a ball of fun. Good luck everyone !
