Well that was a disaster for me! Hope some of you scored pointsJanuary 24, 2020 at 01:38 #1480651
We all get days like that Euro, it was all the lesser fancied of the Godolphin horses
that came good today, not a favourite in sight
I had nothing running today, and picked up no points from the bonus race either so
I’m a non mover this week points wise and I’ve slid a little to position 103. I’m
not too disappointed in that as I expected to be further down the league, so you
weren’t alone with a disappointing day it seemsJanuary 24, 2020 at 04:00 #1480652
We’ll bounce back next week Graham!January 24, 2020 at 07:19 #1480655TongeParticipant

I ought to have points from Laser Show, Dubai Love, Final Song & Mythical Magic. Only Laser Show has been credited with points though so I don’t know what’s going on there. I seem to remember having this sort of trouble last time with some horses not being credited for their wins for several days, even weeks. I can’t really work out why they find it so difficult. Not as if there are hundreds of races.
Nothing in the Bonus race of courseJanuary 24, 2020 at 07:34 #1480656
Sorry about the no score yesterday Euro and Graham but as you say you can easily bounce back quite well in the weeks to come and the swaps are worth hanging onto for when the high scoring races come along.
I did a whole stable swap yesterday and very luckily included Dubai Future (120 Points) and Dubai Love who I put in with Final Song so scored with both those. Also had points with Mythical Magic placing and possibly Mubtasim although not sure about him as only 7 runners.
I’ve no idea where I am on the leaderboard yet as good old ‘Goslowphin’ have only updated scores for Dubai Future’s win and I’m still at 247th place. I think they must have had a office party after he won and gone home.
Will post an update later today if they all decide to turn up.
Anyway hope your enjoying the comp Euro. For me it’s a tunnel of light through to March and the start of the flat season and as a lot of these horses come back to the UK and Newmarket after their winter holidays it’s also a heads up for me when I get back to my second home Newmarket and get to see them again in the flesh.
Still at least 8 Thursdays to go until World Cup Saturday so use the swaps wisely and still some big guns waiting to fire back at the Al Quoz stables..JacThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...January 24, 2020 at 07:36 #1480657
Tonge ..you and I writing our posts at the same time..LOL
Let’s hope they update soon and come back later with your new score: Jac
Oh yes and the Bonus race.Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...January 24, 2020 at 09:10 #1480661
Well done Jac and Tonge with your winners yesterday
Jac you will get 300 points for Mythical Magic and 200 points for Mubtasim, it doesn’t matter
that there were 7 runners. That was why i was highlighting the Group 2 race to Euro yesterday,
there was a possibility of 900 points for a one two three from the Godolphin horses in a 7 runner
field. It seemed very worth the chance to me. Even without the winner you still net 500 points,
that’s not a bad bit of businessJanuary 24, 2020 at 11:38 #1480675
Thanks Graham I’ll be updating the Leaderboard later today if everyone can get there scores in, if not will do it over the weekend.
I amazingly netted 950 points yesterday with a bit of luck I put Dubai Future, 120 points in and of course Final Song I thought would win so I also added Dubai Love and Chasing Dreams so got 330 points and then the 500 points for 2nd and 3rd in the race won by Glorious Journey. It was a lucky swap as it could have been a disaster.
Now in position 178th – 1590 Points
Would predict that Tonge will be our overall Leader this week as we both got 950 points if my adding up is correct and she was ahead around 120 points from last week. Will wait for everyone’s scores and make up the Leaderboard.
Next week I’m going to be running on empty unless any of the runners from today make another appearance, which can happen, so will be relying on the bonus points, if any.
If you notice, once again, the top of Leaderboard people have used swaps for every week so far so will be running out of amo soon, it’s so important to have at least one swap handy for the end of March Finally when there will be points a plenty all you have to do is sort out the winners.
Look forward to the updates…JacThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...January 24, 2020 at 11:55 #1480678
Great scores Jac and Tonge, that’s a good hike up the leaderboard When I posted earier I
was astonished I was in position 103, but clearly they were late tallying up the scores at that point.
I’m still on 1240 points but I’m now in 260th position.January 24, 2020 at 13:25 #1480690

Well done Jac. Yes, also got 950. Now on 1720 (154th). Early days and I think the meetings get better in terms of more Group/Listed races if I recall correctly from last year. Must resist the urge to blow all the swaps too soon!January 24, 2020 at 18:31 #1480709
Thanks Tonge all updated just waiting for Nathan and Steve now.
I know what you mean about the temptation to blow the swaps especially as I write up the Meydan Thursdays Thread and want to put in all the ones I back.
Good luck for next week..JacThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...
