    It seems that some of their staff know more than others, I’ve just had
    an email with the following info about the Transfer Window, which is
    exactly what Coops was told yesterday :wacko: ………….

    Good Morning Mr Clark.
    I have just heard that the TTF Transfer window is Fri 14th August midday to 10pm Tuesday 18th August.
    If we can be of further service to you please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Presume we start gaining points for horses swapped running after Tuesday 18th August and not before..Jac :good:

    That’s a good question Jac, and having read the rules they don’t specifically answer that
    question. From what they do say, Horse B only begins to start scoring points for its new stable once that substitution is complete. So on the face of it it seems that the swap horse is live
    immediately and the old horse, although you keep the points, is out of the equation as soon as
    the transfer is made. They should have specifically stated who can win points within the window.
    I know that Bobby (VTC) had problems from this very point in his Ten To Follow and had to introduce
    a rule that horses substituted in would not start scoring until after the window has closed.

    Without them being specific, I would just take the general rule they state that the substitution
    is complete as soon as it’s made and therefore it collects points if it wins within the window.

    Thanks for clarifying that Graham. :good:
    No big Group Races until TTF Bonus Race The Juddmonte on Wednesday 19th August so most players will no doubt be swapping in either Enable or Ghaiyyath if they don’t already have them but who will win?

    Looking at the overall TTTF Leader and top 5 from Teleprompter down they do of course have the majority of the top scoring horses already in their stables so if anyone was looking to make headway on the Top Five you would need to find a dark horse who maybe hasn’t run yet and who nobody else has..That is a big ask so good luck to all with your swaps next week and make the right decisions. :good: Jac

    You’re right about the swap Jac, it could be time to throw caution to the wind
    and unearth a hidden gem. Easier said than done though :unsure:

    I spoke to someone at the Tote, horses start scoring straight away once they are put in, the replaced horses are deleted. Hope that helps. :bye:

    That was the rule in the TRF 10 To Follow Mike, but i don’t recall them clarifying that last year.
    If they did they have omitted to include it in the rules this time. I’ll try and get some clarification
    from them but I think it is as per above.

    Hi Mike, I had a word with them and it is as I suggested ………

    As soon as the transfer is done you stop scoring on the one you transferred out and start scoring on the one you transferred in.

    Cheers :good:

    Ah, we were obviously speaking to the tote at the same time Mike, so we’ve
    both got it sorted :good:

    Week 8 Update

    Well it’s going to be a short update this week, short and very sweet for
    Free List who was the only one in the League to have the vision to recruit
    the very useful Space Blues who came with an electrifying late run to take
    the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest. We all take our hats off to you Free List
    and sit head in hands, and our tongues hanging out at the very tasty 33.20 points
    that you richly deserve :yahoo: :yahoo: If we had a podium, then the only
    other stable that managed to clamber on to it was Bourne Losers who had the
    runner up Hello Youmzain in the same race and although it doesn’t quite match
    up to Free List, it still nets 6.40 Point which could be crucial at the tail end
    of the competition. Nicely done Bourne, and it took a very decent looking one
    to get past you :good:

    So very well done Free List, highest scorer in the League for the 2nd week
    running and another move forward to 14th position. :good: :good: :good:
    Bourne Losers stay where they are in 12th :good:

    Not too much to take the eye of the league this week although from memory a couple,
    At A Canter and Unbearables have Threat running in the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes
    at Newbury on Saturday and Myself, On The Bridle, and Frankel1234 have Pierre Lapin
    in the same race.

    Apologies if I have missed anyone else having a runner, it would take too long to scour every race
    here and over the briny to our French cousins.

    Good luck with the few that we have this week, and don’t forget to get your transfers
    in from Friday 14th until Tuesday 18th

    Here is the league as it stands after week 8

    Thanks BigG.
    Just had an email inviting me to “share my thoughts” on the Ten To Follow experience. The link doesn’t work, which sums up everything I wanted to say about the quality of their IT skills!

    Ha Ha Tonge got it in a nutshell. :good:

    Now I’m wondering about swapping out two of my stable in the next 5 days.
    Do I have to do both at the same time or can I swap one on say Saturday and save the other for Monday, I don’t want to get locked in after one swap had enough of that the last 5 months. :wacko:
