Yes I'll be running an exotics comp similar to the one we ran on harness a few weeks ago.

On selected races you get to choose 5 horses - 6 for the Cup and then you have a choice of any or all of boxed quinella, boxed trifecta and boxed first four on those horses.

It's a risk and reward concept and the winner will be the person who posts the biggest profit or smallest loss.

I'll be putting a selection thread up when fields are out.

And likely for one of the few times, 3 horses can jump into the top 24 order depending on outcomes.

Chapada and Serpentine will enter the top 24 just by placing. Makram, Interpretation, Schabau or King Of The Castle will make the top 24 by winning. Or Realm Of Flowers could cement her position in the top 24 by winning also.

Which means those currently 22 - 24 (if no other drop outs) would potentially be below 24 if the scenario defined above happened and 3 gained entry by virtue of the one race.

So if for example, Schabau beat Chapada and Serpentine - with no others deciding not to accept, Smokin Romans, Emissary and Realm Of Flowers would drop to 25 - 27 in order. And the only way in for them would be VRC Directors choosing to oust a runner from the top 24, which is highly unlikely.
