Four long, hard days and 46 matches over Cheltenham’s gruelling playing field. In the end it was a spectacular final day effort and a fightback of gargantuan proportions after a first day score of 3 which would have frightened (and did frighten!) many lesser mortals away.
Very well done to The Bairn whose magnificent 13 was enough to overhaul Grizzo and pip the long time leader up the Cheltenham hill.
FanciedHorseLayer improved daily and dead-heated for second in the end, after looking like a longer trip will suit. Non Vintage made the frame after a double figure score today left him wondering what might have been had he not dwelt at the start.
So, the 5 hour long Cheltenham triple DVD and the Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£30 free bet goes to The Bairn – well done.<br><br>Final scores :<br>The Bairn-35<br>Grizzo-33<br>Fancied Horse Layer-33<br>Non Vintage-31<br>Aranalde-30<br>Scottish Jamie-30<br>Sal-30<br>Roland-28<br>Bob Rolf-28<br>Chetnole-28<br>Doyley-27<br>Johnny B-26<br>Bilko-26<br>Flatseasonlover-26<br>Adrian-24<br>Pat123-24<br>Matty-24<br>Superslippers-23<br>Danny-23<br>David Brady-23<br>Aragorn-23<br>Sugar Turkey-21<br>Manugirl-21<br>Grundy-20<br>Benji-17<br>Michael Walsh-14<br>APHardy-11<br>David Johnson-10<br>Kevin-8<br>Seven Towers-7<br>Young Mick-5<br>Jamsym-5<br>Grimes-3March 17, 2007 at 10:11 #87302GrizzoMember

Grundy – point taken, I just wanted to try something different. May revert back to old format next year though.March 17, 2007 at 13:01 #87307thebairnMember

I’d rather you didn’t!
Seriously, though, many thanks Cormack for running this competition and to all the other competitors (especially Grizzo and FHL) for taking it to down to the wire.
Looking at the results, I reckon that if Osana hadn’t finished in front of Fair Along in the finale then we’d have had a three-way dead-heat, which would have been a fitting result.March 17, 2007 at 13:06 #87308Andrew HughesMember

Cormack, a very interesting competition, well run as ever and my congratulations to The Bairn. Made me look at form in a completely different way.
