    Week 13 Update

    Did a quick check after posting above, and it is as I expected, there are no
    points picked up and therefore the League stays the same as last week. Next
    week liable to be much the same (same as it ever was…..I suppose only a few
    Talking Heads fans would have got that reference in week 11 update :unsure: )
    I’ll post the league anyway just so nobody has to scroll up to see where we
    all are. It hardly feels like a year, but the festival is nearly upon us again.
    Best of luck all :good:

    Seeing as we are on a new page now, Inthestream highlighted that the transfer
    window opens on 2nd March. Check back on page 5 for details about that.
    All the best :good:

    How will the “transfer window” work?

    The transfer window will operate in the lead up to the Cheltenham Festival, opening at 9am on Monday 2 March and closing at 5pm on Monday 9 March. Customers will be allowed to swap up to two horses from their list. There will be no option to buy further changes. This is to give people the chance to replace horses who may be out for the season, or simply to freshen up your list for the big spring Festivals.

    I was wondering if there would be a chance to swap out a couple of horses but as BigG said it was well hidden away.

    Perhaps the options will appear on the main page from tomorrow.

    Anyway big thanks to inthestream for the heads up and to Graham for keeping us all in order over the past months.

    Best of luck to all..not long now.
    :good: :good: Jac

    I’m glad that most seem to be aware of this now, I hope that those that haven’t
    posted have at least noticed the update, or maybe they were aware anyway. I know
    what you mean Nathan, I sometimes sit with a blank stare on my face trying to
    remember a password, I’m glad that I clicked on the “remember password” for this
    one.

    Thanks Neil for the reminder of the transfer window rules, and there is a thread in
    the Cheltenham 2020 Forum dedicated to listing horses either injured or not heading
    to Cheltenham if anyone needs to check.

    Cheers Jac, and you’re right it’s not the easiest of sites to navigate. A lot to look
    forward to with the festivals here and at Meydan. What a great month it will be :yahoo:

    A reminder that today is the deadline for using your 2 transfers. It really is the world’s worst website so allow yourself plenty of time!

    Thanks for puting that in Tonge, there is so much going on that I nearly missed it. I
    couldn’t agree more, the person who put that site together has masochistic tendancies :wacko:
    I hope everyone else got the message :good:

    As to be expected there was no movement whatsoever in the league this week, everything
    of any note was being kept under covers for the festival. It’s make or break time, so
    very best of luck all, and hopefully your wallet/purse is bulging by the end of play
    on Friday :good:

    Apologies again for lateness posting what is the final day of competition.
    It’s not what anyone was looking for, but these are very troubled times and
    we have to adapt and most importantly stay safe.

    We have our winner, and it’s very well done to Wakashandy who has been up there
    for some time and coasts home with a very impressive 402.9 points. Very well
    done, it’s quite a feat to plot out a winning stable for the season and you
    achieved that handsomely, big congratulations :good: :yahoo: :good:

    A great showing too by Inthestream, who led the league for a good while before
    Waka burst through. A great showing Inthestream :good:

    Final podium place goes to Jack H, who was closing in on the top two but unfortunately
    the enforced closure of the competition scuppered your chances of a late run. Nonetheless
    it was a first class performance and a great score. very well done sir :good:

    Many thanks to all that took part in the competition, and myslef (Firstfencefallers) and
    Barrow Raiders battled it out for the wooden spoon, and thankfully I won that one :yahoo:

    Hopefully they run this again next year, if any of us are left standing after this cursed
    virus, and we can get a full run at it. I think they need to completely scrap their site
    format and come back with a completely new user friendly one.

    Finally apologies again for posting this a week later than I should, I’ve been completely
    thrown out by all the life changes this coronavirus has brought about. Horseracing is
    wonderful and I’ll miss it greatly, I’d imagine it’s only time before Ireland halts also,
    but way more important than that is all staying safe and taking care of our families. God
    bless all, I hope we all come through this and if it’s possible for anything good to come
    out of this, we hopefully will be a tighter and more thoughtful community. That’s what life
    should be like.

    All the best to you all, your families and friends :good:

    Yea, well done Waka and thanks Big G for the updates. Such a pity it had to end so suddenly, but look, we were very fortunate to have got Cheltenham. Stay safe everyone!

    Thanks Inthestream, you gave a darn good showing. It is a pity that it had to end this way, and
    I’m fortunate that I got to Cheltenham on gold cup Day. Despite the scare stories about Cheltenham
    I’m still fine and have been indoors since I got back home on the following Monday.

    As you say, keep safe everyone :good:
