Losers Get Laid - Week 8 entries

Recommended Posts

Plenty of options this week, though I get the feeling there is really only two races anyone will pick in.

I am making a small exception this week.... if you wish to lay horse in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes at The Valley on Friday night. Picks for this race only close at 11pm.

Otherwise, come Saturday, entries close at 1.31pm.

I think that is it, smartly played Kloppite, even if we all pick the Cox Plate fave and it loses we simply wouldn’t earn enough points to escape the mercy clause, except of course Scooby and those currently in the mid to high 400 point range 

The good news is twofold, if we do all get knocked out today.

Firstly Kloppite is going to donate his prize to someone needy, please advise names for my approval Kloppite, or I’ll make the decision and advise here.

Secondly, I’m going to donate the same prize again, if Toblerone will run it, starting next Saturday, then the four days of Melbourne Cup week, the three days of NZ Cup week, plus the NZ Trotting Cup.

A short sharp two week jobbie over seven different days

I'll have to follow too … Lys Gracieux..

By my calculations, she has to close off at $3.00 and less and loose just to avoid getting the chop from the mercy rule...yikes.!

(was today the last day for this comp.?)

Thanks for the comp.. sponsors and Toblerone

Well done Kloppite, shades of Kotare Chief. Too much for us more conservative types.Thank you to Toblerone for the scoring and to p4p for putting up the prize. 

On the off chance Lys Gracieux is the subject of a massive plunge and still misses I will go for her in the Cox Plate along with everyone else.

Still a few people left in, and I have lost one life so I won't count my chickens, but if my luck holds and I finish in the prize spots, I'm happy for you to find someone deserving.  Cheers.

Scooby can decide then....but it has to go to someone who’s had a rough spin for whatever reason....or someone who’s thoroughly deserving 

Scooby will sort it out
