Good couple of days for me - well my 2yo's. 3 big wins for them

Wuxi Tales - Xinyi Players Granddaughter does it again in the group3 5f. 6 wins from 7 starts now with only one very strange loss, almost last. Carrying a penalty this week, an looking as strong as ever, superstar of a horse.

Nanching Enthrall - Back to form in the Cheverly Park. Looks like she's really struggled top carry a penalty this season. But 2 group1 wins now. She'll be a tough horse to beat off level weights

Osaka Play - Lovely win in the Dewhurst. always run his race this season an looks the one to beat over 7f. Very good 1m2 horse as a 3yo so there's a possibility he comes back next season

Delighted to get my first ever winner in the Chepstow nursery with Release Pallida.

And astonished that the lovely Crocodile managed 2nd in the Dewhurst. I really thought it would be outclassed.

Great week for my team especially on the flat and taking the Punchestown Gold Cup in the NH.

Final week approaching and it's gone by so quick. Wish the league could start a little earlier than the end of June.

Flat

Sequel Eclipse 1st - The Breeders Cup is my favorite flat meeting in real life and I've always wanted a Juvenile winner. Her mother was very close last season to winning this race. She showed a great turn of foot in the last .5f to get up having being boxed in when making her move.

Initialize 1st - Wanted to save this Colt for next season but thought I'd have better coming in overtime, so decided to upload him. He showed real class today against a top class field and won going away. It's taking me weeks but I finally have better 1m4f 3yo and they look very exciting. It's difficult with hold up horses in the league at some courses, but today the jockey rode a great race and I'm stoked to have won this particular race.

Memory Reset 1st - One of the best flat horses I've ever had in the flat league. His running style is perfect for the league and winning 5 G1's at 5 different courses is amazing, specially against the level of competition this season. His offspring are looking very good as well so the futures bright for him passing on his abilities. Another key race I've always wanted to win.

Grovey Project 4th - Another solid effort this week and could be back next season as a 4yo but I have much better 3yo's and older milers at home now. Congrats Mr Hooley on the win, great front running performance by your horse.

Jupiter Rain 1st - Only just got into the race and my only horse under 100 rating. Early form put her in with a good chance this week. She's showing signs of an awesome Wondermare at home and most of my new 1m4 3yo are by her.

NH

Plague Runner 1st - Nice to see this horse finally bag a top class race. His offspring are looking great in my trials so fingers crossed I may compete next season in the top 3mC.

Thanks to Gray & Martin and the rest of the crew behind the scenes.

Congrats to all winners and place getters.

I'm coming for that Prizemoney Leon :lol: :lol:

Another good week for me also, with my NH stable continuing their rich vein of form, have to mention Amazing Grace who with 8 wins from 11 on the season 3x G1 and 2x G2 is now by far the best horse I have had on pure numbers. Couple of wins on the flat too with a G1 in the mix which was unexpected.

Reminded how much I hate the week 13 schedule which has very little that too plays to my strengths, oddly the flat looks like better bet this week.

Will be glad of the break myself, had about enough this year and cannot find much motivation to turn on the game right now.

Congrats to all the winners and placers and my thanks to the back room team.

Josh

Well played everyone, some great winners at the Breeders Cup - mine all struggled but Three Doors Down ran well again to finish third in the Mile. The flat was a bad week for me with no winners.

The NH on the other hand was another great week, with 5 wins, and could have been even better if High Intensity hadn't thrown the race away with a fall at the last. He is invincible over 2m1f so I was gutted to see him fall just as he was about to go into the lead. A win there would have been amazing after taking the Punchestown Champion Hurdle (Hurricane Fly) , the Irish Grand National (Fearless Amy), and the two novice races (Dare to Do and Jack of Clubs). The novice chasers really stepped up for me over the last three weeks.

Hurricane Fly has been a true Irish specialist this season, winning 2 x G1s and a G2 in Ireland and not reproducing anything near that level of form in the UK. No idea why haha!

Sorry for being unable to support on comms, my computers have had to be returned to work as I go between jobs so I'll be unable to play until the end of April/start of May. Like Josh I have had no motivation to play recently, I've done one season since this league began, so if I am back next season it will be with a limited stable and some of my current team returning a year later.

Great to see the league will continue though with some slight tweaks and changes and i'm sure more people will get involved to support with the running of it.

Delighted to see Roaring Hawk finish as the top 2yo stayer and get revenge over Lethal Diamond after the jockey's howler in the Criterium De Saint Cloud last week :D

looking through the form for Letham Diamond I have to ask why after winning a maiden race in week 1 it carried 10st 1lb in its next 2 races which were listed races and it finished outside the top three.
Then it carried a 9lb penalty in its next 2 races (G3).
The only 2 races Letham Diamond wasn't carrying a penalty in it won, but your horse was a close 2nd on both occasions :D
