RIO struggling to recapture form

The inaugural Raceday champion and Group 1 final winner RIO looks to be nearing retirement after a miserable season with just 3 placings in 10 starts.

He currently sits 145th on the ladder.

Despite coming from 64th when successful in the first season of Raceday his best days look behind him.

Fellow winner choc is also on the border of bowing out of contention this season sitting 101st on the ladder. His gutsy win in the last edition followed a top 10 performance all season.

Other previous Group winners all still remain in the hunt with the top 5 performing consistently and looking classes above the rest.

This week the open fields mean that races will be formed irrelevant to ranking meaning the better performed can pray on the easy-beats, however are also vunerable to a major upset.

Good luck.
+1 -1

    Why don't you admit that you have lost all form.

    Love the banter Lads.
    Rio - Form is temporary , Class is Permanent.
    We've all had form slumps - I am in one now , It always turns around !!

    The finals will be held when the better races are run so the skill of finding a long-priced winner in lesser races is less of an asset. That's not to say the top seeds won't be just as effective but the goalposts will have moved somewhat.

    That's the most stupid thing I've ever read on here!!!!

    :D

    I prefer the hitmans theory. Class is forever. I might even watch a few replays tonight and see if that works better than lucky numbers and ones I have shares in!!!! :-B

    Punting/tipping can be a frustrating business ~X( :-\"

    Your helpful suggestions are appreciated Rusty, and if you hadn't put them up i probably would have been on most of them!!!! So I'll just use your list as my check list.. I'm a bit of a Hawkeye Mort - go around every week and will eventually get lucky, just no rhyme or reason to why it works one week and not the next!!!!

    @chris No shame in non paricipation. It's impossible to win the comp without consistently 'racing' :-??

    Rio's form is obviously impacted by his ongoing hangover from his previous victory.

    It's possible to get back in the top 100 in 4 starts too
