  1. R2 - 3 R3 - 6 R6 - 6 R7 - 8 R8 - 1 Thanks Chelseacol!
  2. And so it comes to this... the final roll of the dice. Unfortunately, of all weeks, I've had to pick pretty much blind. It's a method which went very badly a few weeks back, so advantage to Cubes. Now that I've deftly taken control of underdog status, here's some picks... R1 - 1,9 R2 - 1,6 R3 - 3,5 R4 - 2,7 BB R5 - 6,11 R6 - 2,5 R7 - 8,12 R8 - 1,3 R9 - 1,12 BB R10 - 3,13 Good luck to Cubes, thanks for administering the competition PJ, and c'mon the Dark Horses!
  3. I'm already having nightmares.
  4. Fresh from losing another week in the last race, I present to you some more barely adequate selections. R1 - 11,13 R2 - 4,7 R3 - 2,14 BB R4 - 1,9 R5 - 2,4 R6 - 1,2 R7 - 5,7 R8 - 5,6 BB R9 - 1,6 R10 - 1,6 Good luck Robert, thanks PJ, Brian, Howie and anyone else, and go the Dark Horses!
  5. Well done TC! Of course Exalted Adam was going to get up at the finish and snatch victory from me once again. They don't call it deja vu for nothing... Accordingly, I also put a few dollars on it
  6. Had a few issues logging in... whew. R1 - 2,3 BB R2 - 1,4 R3 - 4,5 R4 - 6,13 R5 - 8,9 R6 - 2,9 R7 - 3,10 BB R8 - 1,5 R9 - 7,8 R10 - 5,6 Much has been written about my opponent. 13 victories in a row. One win away from doing a Frankel. Meanwhile, I'm fresh from losing yet another week in yet another last-race loss. I've grown accustomed to the sad inevitability of seeing my opponent's pick get up in the dying strides. If you look at the slo-mo, I'm sure you can see the horse look at the camera and give a shit-eating grin, well aware of what's just happened. This is my life. Some exemplary picking will be required. Am I the man for the job? No, no I'm not. But I can wildly stab at the form with the worst of them, so here goes nothing. Good luck to The Crucible, thanks PJ, and for hopefully not the last time, go the Dark Horses!
  7. R1 - 2,5 R2 - 2,3 R3 - 5,12 R4 - 2,9 R5 - 1,2 BB R6 - 1,3 R7 - 3,5 R8 - 3,10 R9 - 6,16 R10 - 7,13 BB Riccarton R1 - 4,7 R2 - 1,18 R3 - 3,6 BB R5 - 3,4 R6 - 9,12 Good luck Betty, and thanks PJ.
  8. Good to see that the AAs have taken the bait once again, playing their joker against the almighty Dark Horses! R1 - 2,11 R2 - 2,3 R3 - 2,7 R4 - 3,6 BB R5 - 3,5 R6 - 2,3 BB R7 - 3,9 R8 - 1,6 R9 - 3,10 R10 - 5,10 Good luck Casper, and thanks PJ. P.S. Wasn't ballsy enough to pick it, but $80 for Doukhan in the Sydney Cup seems pretty generous to me.
  9. My bad picking seems to bringing out the best in my opponents of late. I'll take that as a moral win. R1 - 2,3 R2 - 2,5 R3 - 2,10 R4 - 8,15 R5 - 3,5 R6 - 6,8 R7 - 3,5 BB R8 - 2,4 R9 - 1,3 BB R10 - 1,9 Good luck Jen, and thanks PJ.
  10. Minimal internet access so even more random guesswork than usual... though I can't do much worse than last week. R1 6,9 BB R2 6,14 R3 1,2 R4 1,2 R5 3,6 R6 1,3 R7 1,2 R8 1,2 BB R9 7,8 R10 8,10 Riverton R1 2,8 R2 12,13 R3 2,9 R4 2,3 BB R5 2,9 Good luck Steve, thanks PJ, and go the Dark Horses!
  11. R1 - 3,4 BB R2 - 3,7 R3 - 4,6 R4 - 1,3 R5 - 1,8 R6 - 1,9 R7 - 1,8 R8 - 1,15 R9 - 2,3 R10 - 3,4 BB Good luck Steve P, thanks PJ, and go the Horsies!
  12. If the evenness of the comp is any guide, you're due for a massive win this week Richie! You were all over Gordy last week until that fortuitous BB in the last.
  13. With TC still on target for a perfect game, here's the Elo ratings after eight weeks. Sarah and Tom are doing the chasing at the moment. At a team level, the Horsies excellent form of late has them comfortably leading the way.

  14. Ahhh, Trentham. It either goes well, or goes very badly. R1 - 2,7 R2 - 2,4 R3 - 1,2 R4 - 1,7 BB R5 - 1,5 R6 - 1,2 BB R7 - 2,4 R8 - 1,4 R9 - 1,7 R10 - 1,8 Good luck Geoff, thanks PJ, and go the Dark Horses! The Rubiks are the real deal, so we've got a fight on our hands.
  15. R1 - 1,6 R2 - 7,11 R3 - 1,6 BB R4 - 3,5 R5 - 1,6 R6 - 8,11 R7 - 3,6 R8 - 1,3 R9 - 4,11 BB R10 - 1,9 Good luck Wrinkles, get better PJ, and go the Dark Horses! We took a well-earned breather last week, and came back to the chasers. The AAs are making their run from the back way too early. Poor deluded fools, think they're Bonecrusher...
