CAd Augusta' v 'The Rubiks

... after race 4

'The Rubiks                                  3       ($ 498.20)

'Ad Augusta'                                 2        ($ 771.40)

 

Best Bet successes for Cubes & Kloppite for 'The Rubiks'. Geoff also successful.  Kloppite is "on fire" for the leaders, going 4 from 4 to date.

Casper is performing magnificently for AA, also 4 from 4 and with a significant $ 309.80 in the kitty. Howie off the mark with a BB, and Cat and Tom chiming in with a win. In fact, Cat has also gone 4 from 4. Great stuff, Cat.

This is a match very much worthy of a semi-final. Well done to both teams. 

 

  • Geoff   (R)  $ 116.20 leads Tom (AA)   $107.80
  • Hesi (R)      $ 119.80 leads Howie (AA) $ 50.00  
  • Kloppite (R) $ 158.00 leads Wrinkles (AA) $ 104.00
  • Casper (AA) $ 309.80 leads Cubes (R) $ 104.20
  • Catalano (AA)  $199.80  leads Roland (R) $0

'Ad Augusta' v 'The Rubiks'

... after R5

'Ad Augusta'                  3       ($1127.40)

'The Rubiks'                   2        (498.20)

 

Sensation here as Wrinkles lands the $35-1 outsider 'Fascinate' home for 'Ad Augusta'. Brilliant stuff, Wrinkles. 

That has seen the lead swing back to 'Ad Augusta' in a see-sawing match.

Eyes will turn now towards Roland for 'The Rubiks' to see if he can land one of his famed 'longshots' to bring 'The Rubiks' back in to contention.

 

  • Wrinkles (AA)   $ 460    leads Kloppite (R)  $ 158
  • Casper  (AA)  $ 309.80 leads Cubes (R)      $104.20
  • Cat        (AA)  $ 199.80  leads Roland (R)    $ 0
  • Hesi    (R)       $ 119.80  leads Howie (AA)  $ 50
  • Geoff  (R)       $116.20   leads Tom  (AA) 107.80

'Ad Augusta' v 'The Rubiks'

... after race 6

'The Rubiks'                  3   ( $ 1412.20)  

'Ad Augusta'                  2    ( $ 1127.40)

More sensation here !  Following on from Wrinkles landing a $35-1 shot in the previous race, Roland has come storming back for 'The Rubiks' to land a $91-1 shot home 1st ! That's right, that's not a misprint, folks, Roland with a $ 914 collect in the first race off the rank in Australia. Brilliant plus, Roland ! Needless to say, no-one else was on it.

So the lead in the match changes again ! 'The Rubiks' now back in front. What a fascinating see-sawing affair.

  • Roland  (R)    $ 914         leads  Cat (AA)    $ 199.80
  • Hesi       (R)   $ 119.80   leads Howie (AA) $   50.00
  • Geoff     (R)   $ 116.20   leads Tom (AA)    $  107.80
  • Wrinkles (AA) $ 460.00 leads Kloppite (R) $  158.00 
  • Casper  (AA) $ 309.80 leads Cubes (R)      $ 104.20

 

The Geoff/Tom ... and Hesi/Howie matches become critical. 'The Rubiks; hold narrow-ish leads in both matches, and 'Ad Augusta' need to claw on of those back.

Keep a close watch, folks.  Great match.

'Ad Augusta' v 'The Rubiks'

... after R7

'The Rubiks'                    3   ( $ 1632.20)

'Ad Augusta'                   2    ( $ 1215.40)

 

After longshots scored in the previous two races, normal transmission has resumed with plenty of people scoring in this one courtesy of the 2nd fav.Sprightly Lass.

For ' The Rubiks' we saw Captain Cubes chime in with a  BB as he sets off in pursuit of Casper. Geoff and Kloppite also successful for the leaders, and an important win for Hesi extending his margin over Howie.

For 'Ad Augusta' Tom and Wrinkles were successfully. Tom trails Geoff very narrowly, there's only $8 in it. This Geoff/Tom match is highly critical to the overall match outcome.

  • Roland  (R)    $ 914     leads Cat    (AA)   $199.80
  • Hesi      (R)    $ 163.80  leads Howie (AA) $ 50.00
  • Geoff    (R)    $ 160.20 leads Tom (AA)     $ 151.80
  • Wrinkles (AA) $ 504.00 leads Kloppite (R) $ 202.00
  • Casper (AA) $ 309.80 leads Cubes (R)       $ 192.20

'Ad Augusta' v ' The Rubiks"

... after R8

lead change

'Ad Augusta'                  3   ( $ 1339.40)

'The Rubiks'                   2   ( $ 1880.20)

More drama in the most interesting match I can recall being in. Another lead change, late in the piece at R8 of 10, but it's highly likely that we haven't seen the end of the lead changes yet !

Howie nabs a BB for 'Ad Augusta' to sneak out to a narrow lead over Hesi, and turning the match 3-2 in 'Ad Augusta's favour.    

For 'The Rubiks' Geoff scored a BB also, as he very often does, with wins also to Kloppite who has earned his 6th success of the day, top stuff, and of particular interest a win to Captain Cubes with a late rally closing in fast on Casper.

So don't get go anywhere folks ...this is going right to the wire !

Top match.  Shame one team has to lose.

 

  • Wrinkles     (AA)  $504.00     leads  Kloppite (R)  $264.00
  • Casper       (AA)  $ 309.80 leads Cubes (R)   $254.20 
  • Howie        (AA)   $ 174.00 leads Hesi (R)   $ 163.80
  • Roland       (R)      $ 914.00  leads Cat (AA)  $ 199.80
  • Geoff         (R)      $ 284.20  leads Tom  (AA)  $ 151.80

In the 'Ad Augusta' v 'The Rubiks' match there are no horses running as 'Best Bets' in the penultimate race, but in the final race there are 8 separate horses carrying at least one Best Bet.

It's gonna be a fantastic climax to a dramatic day in this closely fought match-up.

'Ad Augusta' v 'The Rubiks'

 

This is way I see it, and I've calculated this very quickly. Hope I'm correct. You've got to back yourself, don't you.

For 'The Rubiks' to win the match, they need one of the following scenarios :-

Savapinski or Sebring Dream to win for Hesi     (unless Hussterical runs second to Savapinski in which case it will be a very close call.

French Emotion or Hussterical to win for Captain Cubesinmeister

Hussterical / Jester Halo quinella for Kloppite.

You'd have to say that on that basis 'The Rubiks' have a royal chance here.

Good luck, everyone ! Anyone got any fingernails left !:D
