Seeing Brian seems to have had issues with his scoring, here's what I've got from the Head to Head match-ups from yesterday.

Kingstown Town made his run before the clock tower and got caught in the shadows of the post.... that was a close one for sure.

(this is before the $250 bonus has been added along with the 1st-8th bonus allocations.

The judges decision is final and any correspondence will not be entered into... Any correspondence from a player will result in a $1k deduction from their total but if the player happens to be leading the comp then the deduction will increase to $2k... yikes.!!!😀

While  Brian (Kundalini) is now doing the Team scoring and race by race updates, I thought I'd still keep my Team scoring up to date as well.

So here are the totals as I have it after allocation of the Top 8 bonus and the $250 Head to Head win bonus.

Just to be clear, these bonus's are separate and based on the base scores at the end of the comp day.

(i.e., I havent taken the base scores and then added in the $250 for the Head to Head winners and then based the Top 8 bonus on the base and head to head totals.... it does make a difference believe me).

The bookies at the TAB are deliberating whether to make an early payout on Sunline winning the Team Comp.😀

Just for everyone's info.

I am off to a wedding in New Plymouth (postponed from October last year because of Covid) , so my apprentice Say No More (John) will be doing the scoring on my behalf.

He will be doing the INDIVIDUAL race updates while Kundalini (Brian) will continue doing the updates of the Head to Head match-ups.

At the end of the comp day, John will provide both the Individual results and the "official" results of the Team totals and Head to Heads as well as allocating the bonus's etc.

Wedding is at 4pm but I'll be MIA around 7.10pm.

Good Luck to everyone...

Racing Jimmy (Black Caviar)

Sorry John - it's been a busy week and I missed that things got underway tonight. I've lost a few lengths at the start but can still get there with a few breaks going my way 🤪

Thanks for stepping in and keeping the entertainment going.

Cheers,

Phil

Thanks Phil.  You're starting tomorrow on a par with more than half the field, and as you say not too much ground lost

It's a heck of a job that Paul does each week and having experienced it this one time, I've noted a few things that I reckon we can all do to make Paul's job easier:

- cut and paste the races from Paul's original post and just enter your selections next to the races - in this way you won't miss a race

- enter your selections in numerical order - the order you enter doesn't change your score but it does make scoring easier if they're in numerical order

- don't enter horse names - just numbers - we seem to have nailed this one by now

- take 20 seconds to check your picks before you post - look for two best bets, no missing selections, no typos, no duplicate selections, ....

- when you post scratching replacements, if you can post them all at once rather than drip feeding them, that helps

and finally and perhaps most importantly - if you change your picks or add a best bet or replace a scratching, please do it in a new post rather than editing your original post.  If the scorer has already captured your selections, there is no guarantee they will see any edits.

Great work there John....You may also wish to consider...

Races in chronological order

Number the races....original  post to have meeting posted...then just use the race number and selections, thus 1.5-6 ......2.8-9 etc

Good Afternoon from New Plymouth..

I've always posted the Entry Thread in Meeting then Race order as I believed easier for players to make their picks. And definitely "should" help them post their picks,  as them jumping from meeting to meeting for posting picks  just makes for a possibly bigger mess of their postings..

Not sure what you're meaning on your 2nd point.?

For today (for eg) it's

Randwick Race 3:

Randwick Race 7:

Randwick Race 9:

Can't be any more clearer than that, definitely nothing there to confuse anyone and cause them to muck up there picks..

Absolutely agree re Meeting then Race order to make it easy for the 80 entrants.  Easy enough to deal with this as a scorer.

Worst of both worlds if Paul puts it up in Meeting order and then some entrants post their picks in chronological order :)

45 minutes until posting deadline and only 4 left to post - pretty good going:

Loancrusher (Kingston Town)
Mooseman (Kiwi) - often posts closer to the deadline
Zac Hussai (Makybe Diva) - the great mare is carrying a big weight with this one
Toddy (Manikato)
