Proposal is to take a First Four in the Melbourne Cup.

Using the internationally-acclaimed A-B-C method, we can select 12 horses, group them into A=4, B=4, and C=4, and get 10% for $640.

The $640 is made up of 16 shares of $40 each.  One player can take more than 1 share.

Each share has the opportunity to name their top EIGHT fancies.  We put them into a spreadsheet on a 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis and the highest-scoring 12 horses will make up our ticket.  The top four will make up the A line, second top four the B line, and third top four the C line.

I will act as Treasurer and will place the bet.

Players will be required to transfer $40 to a nominated bank at first opportunity.

Selected horses should be sent to me by PM - please don't post your picks in this thread until group selections are finalised.


1.  We're selling 16 shares of $40.

2.  Once the 16 players are identified, I'll PM bank details.  Each player agrees to transfer $40 (net of any charges) to the nominated account BEFORE Thursday 29 October.  Please clearly identify your transfer with your FORUM NAME.

3.  Each player is asked to nominate EIGHT horses in order of preference from the Cup field. PLEASE SEND SELECTIONS BY PM.  Selections must be received by 18:00 AEST Mon Nov 2.

4.  Selections will then be ranked on the basis of 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 points to provide us with the top 12 fancies.  If there is a tie, preference will be given to the lowest saddlecloth number.

6.  I agree to place a 10% First Four bet on NSW TAB using the A-B-C method.  Full details of the bet and proof of placement will be posted on this thread as soon as bet is finalised.

7.  Proceeds of the bet, if any, will be shared equally among the players.

8.  Players agree to accept the decision of myself as treasurer, and accept that losses may occur due to errors, omissions, etc. The players agree to accept such risk.

SHAREHOLDERS

Chalky, monologue, racehorses and myself are already in.

Before opening nominations to the wider community, I'm giving last year's players (see below) first call on the remaining 12 spots.

Any vacancies remaining Monday next week will be offered on first come, first served basis.

Not sure why I wasnt in this last year but to save face if any of last years entrants miss out on a spot because I jumped the queue then Im happy to reliquish my spot and take a seat on reserves bench.

Can't be fairer than that.  emthup .
If it gets testy then DD can adjudicate  :lol:

Thanks for follow-ups, guys.

Have filled the 13 spot - unlucky for some.   :biggrin:

Vintage is in.

I'll get someone to do a draw for the empty spot tomorrow if we have one to fill.

Ascot has just checked in from somewhere in the West.

He's in.  :chin:   :lol:

So, sadly, the other potential players don't have a spot.

However, there seems to be scope for another syndicate to have a go.  :bulb:

Doesn't have to be 16.  You could get 8 and play for 5% on the same principles.

Happy to help if that's needed.

I'll PM the 16 players with bank details.

Good luck to us.  :thumbsup:

Just catching up on all of this.

DD will get my money before deadline noted in PM.

Otherwise he knows where I hang out most Saturdays.

Will certainly be on track for a 2YO race on Derby Day.

Cheers

I'd encourage members who missed out to give this a fly.

Just on last year's efforts, this is one of the main syndicate efforts of the year, and possibly the best run of the lot.
Take your chances  :bulb:

Just a couple of stragglers - but I know where they live.   :whistle:
