There were no upsets in this last round of the 2021 Autumn competition with only four Groupies registering a score – Himalayas, RJ1 and The Mighty Quinn tipping Tatts Tiara winner Tofane, and yours truly scoring a modest 5.5 points for runner up Nudge.

Pigracer was not threatened by the results so becomes Groupies Autumn Champion for the second year in a row. De Lago Dude held on for second and new player RJ1 came third, relegating Loges2 to fourth place.

Pigracer assumed the lead way back in Round 5 with a bumper score of 47.8 points having tipped long priced Australian Cup winner Homesman and Savatiano in the Canterbury Stakes.

His other big winners were Savatoxl in the Goodwood and Tofane in the Stradbroke. These long shot winners held him in good stead for the rest of the season.

Loges2 is the 2020/2021 Season winner. He started the Autumn season at the top of the Yearly Board having won the 2020 Spring Groupies competition, and maintained that lead to the finish. The Mighty Quinn and Pigracer filled the minor places.

Congratulations to you all on your tipping prowess.

Thanks to all who participated in the Groupies Autumn Competion. It still attracts a good number of players and makes it worthwhile continuing.

I have a good system in place that makes it pretty easy to collate the results, so it is not onerous for me to continue running the Groupies Tipping Competition, as well as maintaining my own interest in the sport.

The Groupies will resume for the Spring racing season in late August, starting with the Group 1 Winx Stakes.

In the meantime wishing you all good health and good  luck on the punt.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm delighted you still enjoy the Groupies competition as do I in running it.

It is curiously fascinating and keeps the old brain ticking over, along with my spreadsheet skills

After ten years I have amassed an enormous amount of data which is interesting to revisit every so often.

Will be back in the Spring for the new season. 

Hi Dhaulagiri,
