    Well, not quite the big finish to the season we’re used to, but in current circumstances, I’m just glad that we’re done for the season.

    Last winner of the season was Bachasson for myself, and in keeping with Competiton Rules, in the event of the season finishing early, whoever picks the last winner, gets to pocket all of the cash. Worth a try.

    Apologies for the delay in updates the last week, but there seemed little point in speculating over what was going to happen, and I’ve been very, very busy at work the last week or so.

    Even allowing for the premature end to the season, it’s still a whopping score from EuroAlien, who is a fantastic winner, and the decision, to not only go with Honeysuckle, but also make her star horse, made a huge difference. Very well played.

    I’m delighted to see TAPK make it into second, as he’s a regular donator to the prize fund, and it’s great to see him win his own cash lol. Thanks again Gord, and very well played.

    In third place we have Hot Fuss, who is rock solid in the comps. He and Rocky finish the season with the biggest ever score in this, with Pic D’Orhy.

    Lots of people to thank as usual, and as is now traditional, first thanks goes to Aaronizneez. I’ve actually did no too bad the last two comps, and haven’t called on his IT help too much, but not so this year. I had to call on his help several times, and he’s got the patience of a Saint. He actually changed his E-Mail address several times, but I still tracked him down lol. Lee, many many thanks.

    As ever, thanks to everyone who donated prize money, and I hope I haven’t missed anyone. If anyone who hasn’t paid yet is in any kind of trouble with recent events, please let me know. Many, many thanks to…..

    Brilliant selection with Honeysuckle, Euroalien, well done on winning
    The legend that is TAPK came 2nd I heard he made a small 7 figure profit at Cheltenham
    Thanks as always Bobby, your efforts are much appreciated and you will be pleased to know that in my time of being housebound I am setting up online banking with my internet only bank card. You can never be too careful.. :rose:

    Thanks! I’m honestly still in shock that I won this competition! :yahoo: This competition was one of the reasons I joined The Racing Forum, just hoping to not embarrass myself, along with finding a friendly forum to share my passion for horse racing. Honeysuckle did better than I expected and I’m very glad I had faith in her.

    Thanks to VTC for all the hard work in running this contest. :good: I’m sure it takes a lot of time keeping things straight and calculating scores. Congratulations to both TAPK & Hot Fuss for finishing in the top three.

    Thanks again to everyone for making me feel welcome here too! :-)

    First Class Euro and that had to be the best pick of any horse in the competition
    with Honeysuckle, what a nap that was :good:

    Great to see you back in here TAPK and little has changed with you banging in the
    ante post belters as before. I hope the bookies paid dearly for that :good:

    Hot Fuss, it would be an odd competition without you in the top 3, so well done
    yet again :good:

    Thanks again Bobby (VTC) for putting in the hard work yet again running this one.
    Slate House and Bennie des Dieux aside, I had a bit of a shocker but enjoyed it
    a geat deal. I hope you’re keeping on with this one next year, it would be a strange
    TRF without it.

    Hello to everyone

    My sentiments have just about been covered by earlier posts.

    From my own point of view I just hope this awful virus is under
    control. to allow for another competition in the future and we all
    survive to take part.

    The results are not important in the long run and I have to say
    in the two competitions that I have taken part in, I have enjoyed every minute.

    Once again all the best of health to everyone :bye:

    :yahoo: Well done Euro :yahoo: well deserved winner of this competition and perhaps you could commission an oil painting of yourself and Honeysuckle to hang at Euro Towers..we’ll all be there for the unveiling.. not much else going on at the moment but as with John’s sentiments above let’s all come back later in the year and do it all again. :good:

    Also congratulations to TAPK how great to see you back Gord and what a great score. :good: along with Hot Fuss who has been on fire in all the competitions on here. :good: :good:

    Finally a big thank you to Bobby and Aoronineez (sorry if spelt that wrong) for getting this all together and for all the time he has put into it and thinking that just when he thought he was going to put his feet up for the season he is now helping us all fight the biggest threat to life as we know it so…. a big shout out to Bobby and all his colleagues…🌈🌈🌈 Jac :rose:
    PS… Bobby I have backed Bristol De Mai EW in the Virtual Grand National and am actually going to enjoy watching this one. :heart:

    Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...

    Well done Euro.. I had 4 of the top 6 scoring horses and you still beat me with that incredible serlection.. Bloody Honeysuckle.. What was your mindset in selecting her??.. First and foremost I have to thank Bobby VTC for creating the best comp yet.. And that was without Aintree and Punchestown.. Lets hope we’re all here to do it again next season.. There’s a few of us go back a long way on here so stay safe as best you can. Well done everyone involved in this comp it gets bigger and better every year and long may it last.. So long as VTC wins contributor of the year every year as some sort of recognition for his efforts people will realise the work he does. Thanks for messages guys too. It wouldn’t be me to be modest but I thought last year at Epsom I had found my new Dancing Brave in Pinatubo.. I took all the 16s for the 2000gns I could get and 25s for the Derby and 66s for the double.. TAPK has to put things in perspective though and accept that racing is merely a luxury.. Surviving is a different ball game.. Stay safe and oneday we will return to normality and I will continue to reign supreme as the legendary King of Ante-Post betting… :heart: :rose: :heart: B-)

    Thanks again everyone and especially Bobby-VTC!

    Why Honeysuckle?? – She was one of the first horses I selected for my TTF. I liked the way she won at Leopardstown back in April ’19, and thought she could win a few races this season. She’s a tough, gutsy, mare ridden by Rachael Blackmore – so what’s not to love! :yahoo: I wanted a star horse that was different than most, so I took a chance on her. Bringing in Shiskin and Al Boum Photo as my two transfer horses also played a big role in my win.

    Stay Safe Everyone! Hopefully we’ll be back talking horses on here real soon.

    I’m the same as you Euroalien, this competition was the main reason that I joined here, though you certainly fared a lot better than I did. Really well done, and also a great effort from The Ante-post King and Hot Fuss.

    I thought that I had a great list, but it just goes to show how difficult this competition really is.

    Thanks to Venture to Cognac for a really slick competition, it’s certainly better organised than the real version, and I will definitely be back for more.

    Many thanks VTC for your organising of this comp and congrats to Euro on winning so spectacularly with Honeysuckle !

    Such a pity things have come to a sudden halt. Still, I had a few quid on Potter’s Corner on the virtual GN !!

    Stay safe everyone.
