    here's the leaderboard after 18 questions, more to follow this afternoon

    Look at Flushdraw nosing into contention there....with perennial champ Mellor a non-runner all of the other sheep see their chance for glory. But can they seize the day?

      actually, if I do this, this gives you two Ds and you would be minus 10

      Stewards have reversed their own decision, which gives us:

        Thinking people would pick Lion for L meant I didn't pick the obvious jeans answer. Will cost me!

          The answer as given was Healy-Rae, Danny. 1st letter is H.

          Also, think the scoring is wrong RD. 77 is correct if that not allowed but should have been 84 not 80 if it is.

            oh yeah

            Stewards have reversed their reversal, on appeal.

              Stewards are all over the shop. Suggest the only fair thing to do is void the competition and everyone keep their tenners...

                  Question 19: A festival in Ireland

                  Pretty simple answer here really. Unless you're Strewel, in which case Puck Fair makes total sense. Flushdraw also doing his best to blow his chances by showing his age and voting for something that was big when he were a lad.

                      Question 20: A brand of jeans

                      Strewel may have gotten confused with brand of jeans that post in IPB, or else he has more money than we think. Either way, he is the only sheep to have avoided the battle of the big two American brands.

                      And the winner, by a boot(y)-cut(e), is...

                          Question 21: A racecourse in England

                          Plenty of choice here, but remarkably it was the minor-grade track of Uttoxeter that the sheep favoured.

                          but the real drama is at the bottom of the table, where our leader plumped for York and the Knavesmire has knocked him off his perch! Third placed shraaaaaap also had a royal rumble with Ascot and now 6star has surged to the front! Drama-llama!

                            Question 22: A deadly sin

                            IPB sheep are well acquainted with all human foibles but which one would they pick out?

                            I would have bet the house on gluttony myself

                            But the winner was.....

                              Insanely tight at the top with Big Deal rocketing home on the stands side

                              Strewel has restored order at the other end of the table.

                              4 to play and the leaders are discussing a deal....more later

                                                Google images produces some strange results for Java.

                                                Degas is a clear winner and what should have been a penalty kick for shraaaaap turns into an own goal.

                                                Ubac the winner?

                                                pretty sure Zebras prefer to range majestically across the Serengeti so a well-deserved zero for Jam-Fly there.
