    sorry sent them on there now.

    Will go back and double check I have actual live picks later

    Comment


      Deadly, much appreciated all, makes my part a doddle.
      Should be able to get the selections up shortly after 8.
      Feel free to chnage in the meantime though if something inspires you.

        Hmmmmm.
        Desert Crown (who has 6 or 7 picks) looks likely to be a scratch, just so ye know. Talking Horses: Derby winner Desert Crown set to be ruled out for season | Horse racing tips | The Guardian
        Ultimately non-runners are part of the game (Asleigh Barty etc), but I never really thought about it about it happening exactly on deadline day.
        To be fair, for this event will give until Tuesday for free change.

          Ah AJ you're making it too easy for them. Should have kept that to yourself imo.

            Meh, you're prob right. And I'm actually doing myself a disservice in the game as I'm already on a different horse in Alphanista.
            But it seemed a bit unfair that I ask people to get their entries in early, they do, and then this news breaks. So wasn't sure what the best thing to do was. (I'm winging it most of the time anyway)

            Feck Michael Stoute anyway for not keeping it quiet for a few more days.

              No worries. You do a great job running it. I was first in with a change for Desert Crown before the Derby after seeing the way he won at York. The reasons I deserted him for the Arc were two fold he drifted from 2/1 to 5/1 since the Derby and he didn't run in the King George. Two big red flags. Anyway the cats out of the bag now . Good luck to the sleepy heads that don't have to waste a change

                  And Go, Go, Go (or as much as you can 'go go go' with a safety car in play and a mad Irish priest climbing over the fence).

                  As usual, please check your selections that I've not made a mistake, easier/fairer to fix now than later.

                  1. Nothing from SP yet in Athletics or the Rugby Top England Try scorer yoke, so I've hidden the selections. Everyone else can send me in a change to either of these 2 events in the meantime if they wish.
                  2. Nothing from SP yet in the Arc. So again it's open to anyone to change. I've tried to be as fair as possible in the Arc coz of happenings!
                  3. 10pm Tuesday seems a reasonable cut-off point for SP, and also for any slackers to see the Arc news. Solks/mdoug/shrap, have received your changes.

                  1. Lao Lao nailed it with Ismaila Sarr = mdoug. Clearly a case of a maverick long-shot picker recognising a kindred spirit.
                  2. All events have different selections to some extent, which is great.
                  3. To think I was worried everyone would pick Salah, when most picked Haaland. He'll fail.
                  4. Surprised so many picked Michel Smith when I thought this event would be wide-open .
                  5. Will Novax be allowed into America?
                  6. I'll update leaderboard with links to events etc next week.

                                Cheers, got there in the end.
                                I found it really difficult to keep track of where I was the last few days and the PM system makes it very hard to actually find anything after it's been read.
                                So again please double check that I've got you correct.
                                I hope I came up with a fair solution to the Desert Crown deadline day situation combined with SP being a little late, but what's done is done now.
                                Any changes from now on will be using a change chip. Max 4 so mdoug is all-in on his selections.

                                Athletics will be next up, running from 15th to 21st August.
                                Worked out as well as I could have hoped with a decent split of selections between 3 countries.
                                Just to clarify it's standard medal table, so most golds wins, with silvers then bronzes only looked at in the event of ties for golds.

                                And I'll take the medal table as it is on 21st of August at the close of the event, ignoring any drug-test fails that come to light after that (usually Polish shot-putters and UK sprinters)

                                    Thought the athletics deadline was today, curses. Was going to change to GB. Up Poland!

                                      Looking at Poland's 7 golds in 2018, they swept the shotput and hammer male and female for 4 golds. The winners will be competing again so you'd have to be hopeful of a similar result which would give a solid base. Probably essential that they get golds there really, and you'll have an idea of your fate by Evening One, Monday as the two shot put finals are amongst the first events on the Schedule.
                                      Then at the recent Worlds, there was a Polish woman second in both walking events (to a non-European) so presumably she's favourite for a couple of golds there.
                                      After that I dunno, but they usually throw up a one or two capable runners and are generally solid in the relays. 8 golds probably wins (50 events altogether), 7 might be enough.

                                      UK definitely have a lot more arrows to throw and in sexier blue riband events, though one disadvantage is a lot of their athletes will be on their 3rd Championship in six weeks, whilst the other countries didn't have the Commonwealth Games distractions. A few patented Team GB baton drops might be useful.

                                        For some reason, i read the european championship medal table as a whole, not just the athletics portion of it. Ah well, come on GB!

                                              Meh no shot putt gold's this time. No one in the women's final and two lads qualified 3rd and 4th in the men's almost a metre behind leader.

                                                No-one has updated the wiki link in my tables above, and the official WR site has laid it out hilariously badly and turned it into a bizarre memory test as you click from tab to tab.

                                                  Blanks for Poland in the shot put as predicted by our man in Munich limpwhacker, and more bad news as the walker girl has withdrawn from tomorrows first event
                                                  Though also a knock for GB as their first big gold hope Liz McColgan only managed silver.
                                                  But a nice bonus for Germany backers in the women's marathon as they picked up something called the 'team gold'.
                                                  I was dubious when I saw it in wiki but it does seem to be official according to the event medal table. I think/hope it's just a marathon thing, and I guess it has to be accepted.

                                                    Good day of Athletics. Irish lad ran a blinder in the 100m with a national record and just . 04 seconds off a bronze. Germans definitely drawing on the crowd and producing pbs. Solks and Keane we're fckd. Germans romp Brits probably second.

                                                    Comment


                                                      Brits should win at least 3 gold's and a silver today to close the gap on Germany to one. Previous prediction of a German romp may have been premature given GB strength in the relays.

                                                      Comment


                                                        Laura Muir yeah. Dasher Smith - Would she be favourite, feck all odds available but I think I'd be opposed when Pulled Up is her recent form figure 72 hours ago.
                                                        The two lads in the 200M have chances. Don't see anything else for 'at least 3 golds'. I'd prefer to be on Germany with the lead (and the extra tie-break silvers) although don't seem to have much today.

                                                        Comment


                                                          Laura Muir and one of the two lads in the 200m will win. Asher Smith is fine she had "women's problems" her words in the 100m. She's fine now and was very impressive in the semi, she'll win.

                                                                  Aussie Rules league phase ended yesterday, playoffs start next week.

                                                                  Richmond and Western Bulldogs scraped home in 7th and 8th, so have no safety net and it's win or bust from next weekend.

Funny thing is if you'd typed them the other way around (i.e., CR7 in World Cup, Mbappe in EPL) then I'd have noticed something awry and queried it. But Ronaldo was obviously perfectly valid for EPL.

Non-runners have been a bit of a killer - Novax, LIV, the original Derby favourite and Ashleigh 'hates Liam' Barty. I'd thought it might be easier to get runners safely to the starting line post Covid, but seems there's always something.

                                                                                                        Serbia (mdoug, limpwhacker) paid the penalty for Djokovic having better things to do, and GB (myself) also exited despite home advantage in Glasgow. Bizarre decision to twice play Andy Murray in the doubles and hold back the number 3 ranked doubles player. Everyone else safely through.

                                                                                                        1/4s, semi's and final will take place in Spain in November and whilst we don't know who'll be top of the leaderboard by then, there'll likely be some game-changing head to head ties. 4-2-1-1 available so these ties will be for a guaranteed point and the chance of more.

                                                                                                          The remaining team have been terrible, trailing 2-8 before todays sets of games.
