The run home for Raceday finals news

The run home for Raceday finals

Perth Turf Talk | Metropolitan Racing | Thu 28 December, 2017

With Saturday marking the final meeting for the Raceday season, those in the hunt will use it as a last chance to cement their position in the finals.

The finals format will be different this year with an AFL-style second chance award to the top 32. The top 16 will have two opportunities to redeem themselves after a loss.

All 64 competitors will line up on Perth Cup day against a single opponent with 1st playing 64th in a do-or-die contest to qualify to the next round.

The length of the finals will primarily depend on the success of the top 32 as bottom 32 competitors will need to continue winning against failing top 32/16 competitors to make it to the instant eliminators. 

thefalcon has been dominant all the season with only the recently missing spitz ever challenging. One could be forgiven for second guessing rustyh in 3rd position, however he has take a rough route to victory and been successful in cementing his first chance at Raceday success.

Good luck to all those competing in Perth's tipping championship.

 Came across what Chris is talking about before I hit the deck my opponent got $3.00 in front of me with 2 races to go then in the next race changed his tip to mine . I thought this is really not cricket but he did not change his tip in the last, so maybe...

There was a bug with tips doubling up on Saturday, didn't affect any finals but the Qualifiers have been recalculated.
