    Thanks Graham….  so many to choose from it’s a tough call. I think there are few dark ones going to do well this season and surprise us.

    We’re all in with a chance, best of luck. :good:   Jac

    Week 2 Update

    It seems it was all about 1 horse this week. No less than 21 of the 23
    stables had Honeysuckle in their stables. A very decent 27.22 Points,
    but it leaves no change at the top with Goodfellow still at the head
    of affairs. In fact the top 6 places remain unaltered. Only 3 stables
    were able to add to those points, the top scorer was Green’s Freebies,
    who also had the 2nd, Fidlerontheroof, in the bonus race, the Ladbrokes
    Trophy on Saturday. He looked for all the world Green that he was going
    to rein in Cloudy Glen but didn’t quite get there. Nonetheless, as it
    was a bonus race it still a decent 13.80 Points. A total of 41.02 Points
    was the best result of the week, well done :yahoo:

    Not far behind was Storming Norman, who will have been more than happy
    to get out of the basement and into big points courtesy of Honeysuckle
    and Epatante, who just managed to get his nose on the line at the same
    time as Not So Sleepy in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle on Saturday.
    Nice one Storming, 40.52 points sees you making a decent move up the
    table. :good:

    Midnight was the other stable that topped up Honeysuckle with the 3rd
    in the Ladbrokes Trophy, with Ontheropes. A consolation 2.7 Points, on
    top of the 27.22 points, may well come in handy at the business end of
    the competition. Well done Midnight :good:

    I’m not calling out Michael Walsh for being 1 of the 2 that didn’t have
    Honeysuckle, he may not have picked up the points from the bonus race,
    but he’s the only one that managed to pick out Jonbon, who looked super
    impressive at Newbury on Friday. I’m pretty sure if he stays healthy
    he’s going to rack up a load of points for you Mike. Very well picked
    out

    Some big guns out at the weekend that may help some stables, The Many Clouds
    Chase at Aintree has Al Boum Photo, Champ, Protektorat, Imperial Aura whilst
    the Tingle Creek sees Chacun Pour Soi, Nube Negra, Greeneteen and Alloha
    at Sandown. Best of luck with any of these in your stable.

    Good luck this week all, here are the scores as per the TTTf website.

    Week 3 Update

    Well it’s all change at the top after a few very decent horses showed their hand.
    Top of the League is Loudwater Stables who jumped from 3rd last week. The very
    popular Allaho trotted up in the John Durkin and is now favourite for the Ryanair.
    The 29.80 Points were enough to get LS to the top of the heap. Very well done LS
    but don’t look over your shoulder as The Racecourse Gallopers are 0.40 Points
    behind, also having picked Allaho which boosts him from 4th to 2nd spot. Well
    done to you both :good:

    The joint highest scorer of the week, and jumping from 11th last week to get
    his foot on the podium is Michael Walsh. Mike was another Alloha follower
    but paired it up with the equally popular Energumene who was very impessive
    is 2nd fav behind Shishkin, who might have his own problems at the moment.
    Excellent move Mike, that puts you very much in the hunt. :good:

    Ten stables went with Energumene, so very well done to them, he’s going to
    add a lot more to your stables :good:

    I have to give the other top scorer a mention. Jac (Dark Angels) along with Mike
    was the only other to have both Allaho and Energumene in her stable. Those 2 are
    going to bring you huge points Jac. Very well done as joint top scorer of the week
    and a jump of 7 places up the league :good:

    There were a few of us, myself incuded, who couldn’t believe what we were seeing
    as Kilcruit got turned over at Cork on Sunday at 1/14 :wacko: You could see it
    coming well before the end with Henry De Bromhead’s Largy Debut, who looks pretty
    decent.

    I had a bit of seconditis as I also had Fanumbule Sivola who battled all the race
    with Allmankind, he finally got the better of that one but on his first run back
    after a lay-off and he got caught on the run in. He’ll do well after that though.

    I noticed something was wrong with the scoring league for Stoming Norman. On the
    league they have you Norman with 56.52, but they should have you at 84.12. I’ll
    get in touch with them and sort it out.

    Some very decent racing this weekend with Lalor at the head of the market in
    the Racing Post Gold Cup. Fusil Raffles has an entry, but an option of a later
    race. I quite fancy Sirah Du Lac, who’s had his problems but a run over hurdles
    at Cheltenham after a lay-off was only to get him fit. Still 20/1 about.

    Bob Olinger and My Drogo square up in an earlier race at Cheltenham and another
    who is of league interest is Sceau Royal.

    Whatever you’re on best of luck :good:

    Week 4 Update (Still without Bold :unsure: )

    All remains exactly the same at the top, Louden Stables, last week’s leader
    the only one of the top 3 to get any points with Kyntara at Warwick last
    Thursday, 1.60 points (they all count) keeps him on top :good:

    The 9 stables failed to score (2nd to 10th) before we have a winning stable,
    and it’s congrats to Green’s Freebies who had Blue Lord who ran the race
    from the front and never looked like getting caught. Well done green with
    12.60 points and top scorer in a quiet week. Well done :good:

    A popular choice was My Drogo at Cheltenham, and a handy 11.23 points
    to Middle Of March, Raymond Compost Strikes Again, Bourne Losers and
    Unbearable. He looks a good find, well done you 4 :good:

    RR77 and Scottish pride picked up a few points for the 2nd and 3rd runners-up
    in the Racingpost Gold Cup on Saturday,3.70 and 2.30 points respectively. As
    I keep prattling on, they all count guys :good:

    Those were the only scoring stables in a pretty quiet week. This weekend coming
    sees some well fancied stable runners, Michael Walsh, the only stable to have
    the very impressive Jonbon looks odds on to pick up the points at Ascot on
    Friday. Bob Olinger is still entered, but HDB has mentioned he won’t be heading
    here, probably back out around Christmas.

    Saturday has an absolute blinder of a race, The Long Walk Hurdle, with Buzz, Champ,
    Paisley Park and Thyme Hill at Ascot. Cloth Cap appears later in the day, down 4lbs
    from his 6th to Cloudy Glen last time out, but still top weight. The one that stands
    out there, although I don’t think he’s in a stable, is Belami Des Pictons who ran
    a very good close 4th last time out at Bangor after being the best part of 2 yrs off.

    The Tommy Whistle gives Midnight a big chance to boost his Stable tally with Remastered
    who might count himself a bit unlucky coming down at the 4th last in the Ladbrokes Trophy
    Chase when still very much in contention.

    Best of luck to all with stable interests this week :good:

    Week 5 Update

    Well I did say last week that Michael Walsh was the only Stable with Jonbon
    and that he looked odds on to pick up the points at Ascot on Friday, and that’s
    exactly how it turned. He’s an absolute gem Michael and won with any amount in
    hand at Ascot on Friday. Fav for the Supreme now and the 23.20 Points and straight
    to the top of the table. Great stuff :yahoo:

    Loudwater Stables and The Racecourse Gallopers both had a blank week and both
    dropped down 1 place to fill the 2nd and 3rd spot. They were all winthin a couple
    of points last week Mike has opened the gap a little. Mike, LS and TRG all have
    Allaho in the King George, although TRF has the extra cover with Clan Des Obeaux,
    whilst LW has the well fancied Vanillier in the Faugheen Novice Chase at Limerick
    also on Boxing day. It could all change again at the top. Best of luck guys :good:

    Storming Norman lived up to his name and stormed 8 places up the league to 7th place
    with Champ, who also lived up to his name in the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday.
    The extra cover of Thyme Hill got Norman 33.20 Points and top scoring Stable of the
    week. Very well done Storming :good:

    Bourne Losers was the only other stable to have Champ and the 31.92 Points and
    saw her stable getting away from low down in the league, up 4 places to 17th.
    Nicely done Catherine :good:

    Middle of March is another stable to have one that nobody else has, with I AM
    Maximus who was impressive with an easy win at Newbury last Wednesday. He racks
    up 12.50 Points and I’m pretty sure there’s more to come MOM :good:

    Five stables went for Thyme Hill, 3rd in the Long Walk Hurdle and added 1.30 Points
    to their tally whilst 2 went for Gailard Du Mesnil who was 3rd at Naas on Monday
    and got the 1.10 Points. They all count :good:

    An exciting looking card on Boxing Day at Kempton, with plenty of stable interest.
    Bravemansgame and Ahoy Senor go head to head in the Kauto Star Novice chase. Ferny
    Hollow is well supported in the Racing Post Novice race with Epatante strongly
    fancied for the Christmas Hurdle. The big Bonus race is full of stable entries,
    Clan Des Obeaux, Minella Indo, Frodon and Chantry House. My idea of the winner
    is Chantry House, I hope I’m right as I’ve got him at 14/1 (in ante post thread)
    I hope he’s also the answer for the Gold Cup too as again I’ve got him at all
    sorts of odds. It’s a big day for the league and could make some major changes.

    The very best of luck to all and have a happy and very safe Christmas :good:

    Week 6 Update

    Michael Walsh does just enough to stay at the head of affairs with Shishkin’s
    impressive return on Monday in the Desert Orchid. He took a little stoking at
    one point, but once he hit the front he left them in his wake. He’ll be much
    better for that run and surely Energumene is the only one who could give him
    any bother in the Champion Chase at the Festival. That and a very impressive
    Sir Gerhard at Leopardstown on Boxing day, added 33.75 Points and keeps his
    lead. Well done Michael for toughing out another week at the top :good:

    I said Michael did just enough because FF91 played an absolute stormer, with
    Shishkin, Bravemansgame in the Kauto Star on Boxing Day and Envoi Allen, who
    gave his supporters a bit of a scare at Ledopardstown until he finally got the
    upper hand on the run-in. All in all, 74.93 points and a hefty rise of 9
    places to just behind the leader. Top score of the week FF, you played
    an absolute blinder :good:

    Storming Norman was another who hit it out the park with Epante in the Christmas
    Hurdle and Clan Des Obeaux, runner up in the King George on Boxing and Shishkin
    on the Monday, for a very healthy 62.95 Points and up 4 places into 3rd. You’ve
    come with some run Storming, jumping from 15th to 7th last week and 7th to 3rd
    this week.Puts you just about 7 Points off the lead. Definitely a stable to look
    out for :good:

    Too may to mention having Shishkin, only 4 out of the 23 didn’t have him in their
    stable, but that aside there were some excellent scores this week. Sultans of Swing
    scored a nice hattrick with Envoi Allen, Shishkin and Clan Des Obeaux (although
    runner-up) for 62.55 Points and just outside the top 3 by 2 Points. Nobody is stealing
    a march in this, it’s tight as the proverbial duck’s derriere :whistle: Great week
    SOS :good:

    Edentony up 2places to 8th, Middle Of March up 5 to 10th and Rummy (TRF RR77) up to
    to 11th. Jac’s Dark Angels had a cracking week too, up 5 to 13th. Very nicely done
    you 4 :good:

    From lower down the league a couple of nice moves from Raymo and Nathan (Unbearables)
    up 3 places and 2 places with 48.65 Points and 59.95 Points respectively. That gets
    you both away from the manager sacking area :good: I’m still 10/11 on with the bookies :whistle:

    A great week for the great majority, some of us are just going to do a Barry Geraghty
    on Champ in the RSA at the Festival a couple of years back, so keep looking over your
    shoulder right up to the last 100 yards B-)

    There’s a good card at Leopardstown today with the Grade 1 Christmas Hurdle. Klassical Dream,
    Flooring Porter, Sire Du Berlais and Saldier looks a bit big to me at 20/1.

    The Savills has A Plus Tard, and Galvin of interest to the Stables, personally I can’t see
    A Plus Tard getting beat but then again Kilcruit got turned over at 1/14 :wacko:

    Vanillier is definitely interested in a stable in the Grade 1 Neville Hotel Novice Chase
    on Wednesday at Leopardstown as well as Sharjah in the Grade 1 Matheson Hurdle on the
    same day.

    I am Maximus looked well last time out and should be back out at Cheltenham on Saturday
    along with with one of mine, Funambule Sivola who has yet to hit the mark. Brewinupastorm
    and McFabulous look the likely ones in the Relkeel Hurdle.

    Good luck whatever you have running :good:

    Week 7 Update

    Michael Walsh keeps his head in front, and I hope you’re a f/c man Michael
    because you had the one two sussed in the Savills Chase from way back. The
    winner, Galvin (59.10 Points) and runner up A Plus Tard (13.10 Points) That
    gave you the 2nd highest score of the week (72.20 Points) and gives you a
    bit of breathing space from the rest of the pack. Excellent pick and one
    that keeps you at the top :good:

    Although Michael’s kept his lead, I’ve got to take my hat off this week
    to Galaxy’s Bread Winner who is the 1st stable to burst the ton this season
    with 100.70 Points :yahoo: Galaxy also had both A Plus Tard and Galvin,
    but added Klassical Dream the winner of the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown
    last Tuesday for another 28.50 Points. Up 12 places to 2nd is some leap.

    FF91 moves down a place but still has his foot on the podium in 3rd place
    with the very popular A Plus Tard and Galopin Des Champs who went one better
    winning at the Leopardstown Festival on Tuesday 26.27 Points keeps you well
    in touch FF. :good:

    A Plus Tard was the biggest stable entry with 11 stables. It must have been
    agonising watching the finish getting pipped on the line. He still looks like
    a huge Cheltenham prospect as does Galvin. Love to see that rematch.

    The Hopefuls and Scottish Pride both hit over the half century with and
    moved up 4 places and 6 places respectively. Great scoring guys :good:

    i’ve had a quick shufty over the weekend coming, but I didn’t clock any
    that I recognised from the stables. Apologies if I’ve missed someone out’

    Here’s to a happy HEALTHY and prosperous New Year :good:

    Week 8 Update

    Well as I said at the tail of last week’s report, I didn’t spot any horses
    running in week 8 and that’s how it turned out. So nothing to report on
    the league, it stays the same as week 7 with everyone on the same mark.

    This week coming looks pretty bleak too, except for Bourne Losers who
    I recall has Dashel Drasher in her stable. He runs in the Silviniaco Conti
    Chase at Kempton. He’s ridden by that coupon bursting ITV7 bursting Rex
    Dingle who romped home last Saturday on 80/1 Pilsdon Pen at Wincanton :wacko:
    Hopefully he can do just as well on the much more fancied Dashel Drasher
    for you Catherine :good:

    Just for the hell of it I’ll post the league as per the TTTF site, but it
    will look vaguely familiar :scratch:

    Week 9 Update

    No change at the top with Michael Walsh, Galaxy’s Bread Winner and
    FF91 all having the good sense to have Bob Olinger in their stable.
    He does look the business and is odds on with most firms for the
    Novice Chase at the Festival. That’s 17.42 points a piece and the
    podium remains unaltered for now. Very well done guys :good:

    It was almost all about BO (ooh, that doesn’t sit well :whistle: )
    with no less than 10 stables having him, but 1 stable, The hopefuls,
    managed to bag a double with the aforementioned BO, but also the
    very handy looking Dysart Dynamo who strolled home at Punchestown
    and is now generally 4/1 (from 14s) for the Supreme Novices Hurdle.
    Top scorer with 39.82 Points and highest mover of the week from
    8th to 4th. In a relatively quiet week, that’s a great score TH :yahoo:

    At the weekend it would be quite something to see Shishkin V Energumene
    in the Clarence House Chase at Ascot but It’s not going to happen. They
    won’t want to take each other on at this stage. In all likelyhood Energumene
    will head to Leopardstown for the Dublin Chase at the start of February.
    It’s almost inconceivable either getting beaten.

    Plenty have those 2 in their stables, and another “monster” running is
    Jonbon at Haydock. Michael Welsh sits top of the table at the moment
    and being the only stable with Jonbon won’t do his position any harm.
    I think the points are in the bag Mike, he’s 7/2 2nd fav for the Supreme
    Novices Hurdle, or 12/1 if they think he’s good enough to take on the
    Champion Hurdle.

    Bourne Losers had a blank week, but again being the only stable to have
    Dashel Drasher, who has a couple of entries at Lingfield on Saturday,
    there’s a good chance of picking up there :good:

    I could well do with Royale Pagaille getting me a few points, but if he
    does run he’ll be carrying top weight in the Peter Marsh at Haydock on
    Saurday. I really like him and he had the unenviable task of taking on
    A Plus Tard last time and put up a decent show. He’ll need to be up to
    almost Gold Cup standard to win giving the likes of Remastered, who is
    also in a stable, 17lbs.

    Apologies if I’ve missed you’ve got 1 running (managed to miss Bob
    Olinger last week :scratch: ) but best of luck if you have :good:

    Week 10 Update

    After a very good week’s racing, with many of the heavyweights taking to the
    track it was a good scoring week, but none more than for our leader who is
    starting to draw away from the pack. Michael Walsh not only keeps his head
    in front at the top of the league, he is also this week’s highest scorer
    with a top class treble. Shishkin V Emergumene was the most looked forward
    race of the week, and it was epic. Shishkin (26.84 Points) got his head in
    front for the 1st time with probably 50 yards to go. It’s almost a scandal
    that those of you that had Emergumene in your stables get no points, he
    was mmagnificent also.

    Michael also had Jonbon who had to work for it this time, but won well
    in the end in the Supreme trial at Haydock (22.50 Points) and Allaho
    (21.10 Points) who won easily in the end. You’re making it very difficult
    for the pack Mike, but you have been spot on with your stable choices.
    A worthy leader and top scorer of the week :yahoo:

    Galaxy’s Bread Winner stays the closest to Michael as another stable
    to have Shishken in their stable. The gap has opened GBW, over 70
    points now, but there’s miles to go and with Cheltenham and Aintree
    still to come you, and the rest of the pack, are still very much in
    thev hunt. Well done for holding onto 2nd :good:

    A change comes for the 3rd spot, with Loudwater Stable having the 2nd
    best score of the week (60.34 Points). Shishkin and Allaho, as quite a
    few had, added very decent points, but adding to his tally was the very
    gutsy Gerri Columbe(24.72 Points) who looked like he might be in trouble
    with an awkward jump at the last but he showed true grit to get back up
    and win going away. Still unbeaten and clearly doesn’t want to be. Very
    nice addition LS and well done up 3 places from 6th into 3rd spot :good:

    Too many to mention that had Shishkin, 20 stables, and Allaho was next
    best with 9 stables, but a few good moves in the league. The racecourse
    Gallopers up 3 to 5th spot (Shiskin and Allaho 47.9 points), Scottish Pride
    up 4 places to 8th (Shishkin and Royale Pigaille 51.74 Points), RP was
    magnificent carrying lumps of weight in the Peter Marsh), and Dark Angels
    (Jac) up 4 to 16th (Shishkin and Allaho), 47.94 points. Very well done
    all of you :good:

    I’ve got to give a mention our very own Raymo (Raymond Compost Strikes Again)
    with one of the best week’s scores, 50.87 points (Shishkin and Molly Ollys Wishes),
    who only went and bagged a 150/1 winner at the golf this weekend (Darren’s Sports
    Thread) and not only that but got through to the semi final of his own (real)
    local golfing competition. What a weekend you had Raymo :yahoo:

    Some good racing during the week, the Thyestes Handicap Chase at Thurles is always
    a cracker of a race. The only one I see from our stables is Eklat De Rire, who I
    would be sorely tempted to back at the present 11/1 but for the feeling he’ll
    probably head for the Paddy Power Gold Cup a week on Saturday. If he goes to
    Thurles I’ll certainly have a go.

    The Cotswold Cup at Cheltenham on Saturday has Ahoy Senor and Chantry House
    who could add a few points and the Cleeve Hurdle has further stable interest
    with Champ, Lisnagar Oscar and Paisley Park.

    Good luck if you’re on any of them and good hunting elsewhere :good:

    Hi Graham, does the tote allow for substitute like VTC comp does. Was looking last night but couldn’t find anything on it. Perhaps I’ve been overlooking it.

    @RR77: there’s time yet.

    We’ll be able to make online substitutions during the transfer window between 7 and 14 March (ie up to the day before the Cheltenham Festival).

    A maximum of two substitutions per stable will be permitted.

    Thanks for that Sam, I was asked this the other day by Jac (Triptych) in
    the Meydan Thurdays thread and I let her know just as you said. I said
    I would update but hadn’t got round to it yet. It’s exactly as you say,
    between 7th and 14 March, 2 Subs. I think I need to breath some life
    into my lot :wacko:

    Week 11 Update.

    Mike manages to hold onto the top spot despite a blank week and Galaxy’s Bread Winners
    edges that bit closer with Chantry House’s gutsy win over Champ in the Cleeve Hurdle
    at Cheltenham on Saturday. A solid 22.04 Points keeps GBW in 2nd and bridges the gap
    a bit on the leader. Well done GBW :good:

    FF91 reclaims his 3rd place from Loudwater Stables, also had a blank week (with quite
    a few others) as Kilcruit finally got his act together on Monday at Punchestown
    and showed his worth with a bloodless win and not before time after getting knocked
    over twice at odds on. Nicely back on the podium FF, I think we are going to get a
    better half of the season with him. :good:

    Not a particularly high scoring week, 4 of us, Glaxy, Green’s Freebies, Unbearable
    and myself were relieved that nothing was wrong with Chantry House after a bit of a
    nightmare run in the KG. Unbearable also added Kilcruit for the double, for a very
    decent 35.06. nicely done :good:

    Man Superstars and Inthestream saw the return to form of Third Time Lucky at Doncaster
    on Saturday. it turned into a 2 horse race when For Pleasure fell and Do Your Job was
    no match for TTL who sauntered to a 30L win. He’s been backed into 14/1 for the Arkle,
    but I wouldn’t be betting him at the moment, Dan Skelton said that he had an overreach
    and whilst he’s okay, he says that there’s the possibility they might have to wait for
    Aintree. I hope he makes Cheltenham for you guys, he looked to be well back to himself :good:

    Kilcruit was the most popular pick with 7 stables pleased to see him return to form.
    but wait a minute, hold the front page we have a highest scorer this week with a
    magnificent treble. Yes believe it or not, it’s meeeeeeeeeeeee :yahoo:

    I’ve finally made my way out of the dungeon with many thanks to Chantry House, Kilcruit
    and Funambule Sivola who was braver than a lion to get up on the post carrying top weight.
    He’s not a big horse but he’s got a big heart :heart: A total of 41.03 Points sees me
    creeping away from tail end charlie.

    This weekend has somee big guns out on show. Punchestown is awash with them but I’m
    dying to see how Blew Lord goes in the Irish Arkle Novice race. I was particularly
    drooling over the match with Ferny Hollow, but sadly he misses this and cheltenham
    with a ligament injury. Al Boum Photo runs in a handicap, 5lbs below top weight !!,
    personally I’m going to have a few quid on The Jam Man if he shows up. He ran a
    terrific race behind the talanted Sporting John at Warwick last time out.

    The Irish Gold Cup looks a bit tasty too with the likes of Kenboy, Clan Des Obeaux,
    Frodon, Minelle Indo and Tornado Flyer, it will be interesting if he upholds the KG
    form. I’ve been disappointed with Eklat De Rire ran so poorly the last twice out,
    I really fancied him to do well this year. I don’t see HDB sending him out if he
    thinks he hasn’t got the problem resolved, 50/1 seems to me to be a huge price
    if he has found his way back and I can’t see Henry sending him out if he thinks
    he has no chance. Sandown has a competitive card but not anything Ican see of
    stable interest.

    Sunday over at Leopardstown, Galopin Des Champs struts his stuff in the Ladbrokes
    novice chase. I can’t see him getting beaten, but 1/2 is not my kinda bet. Chacun
    Pour Soi shouldn’t have too many problems in the Dublin cup, although he could
    get a fight from Greaneteen.

    If they all turn up, what arace the Irish Champion Hurdle will be. Honeysuckle,
    Sharjah and Appreciate it all lining up. I hope Quilixios comes back to the form
    he showed when winning the Triumph hurdle last yearand to be fair he came up against
    a good one in Teahupoo on the last 2 occasions.

    Sir Gerhard is another out on sunday along with Fabiolo and Dysarta Dynamo is down to
    run but I can’t see Willie pitching all 3 highly thought of horses to battle it out,
    but you never know :unsure:

    Very best of luck luck this week, plenty of stable interest running over in Ireland :good:
