    Any thoughts on this years race?

    Well here's the blurb:
    The 161st Boat Race takes place on Saturday 11 April and is scheduled to get underway at 5.50pm. Cambridge lead the university battle with Oxford 81-78, but Oxford closed the gap last year as they clinched victory with the biggest winning margin since 1973.

    Price reflects this, with 70% popularity for Oxford @ BP x1.30. With the price this low may only good as a lucky/add-on multiplier (Stanley allows Novelty on Accums').

    Safe triple could be either Godsmejudge or Unioniste (to place at GN) and the way things are looking after today, Spieth to Master the course over the weekend.

    x 1.3
    x 6.5 circa
    x 3

    I'm leaning towards Oxford myself. Haven't had a good look at the national entries. Will do tomorrow

    Might avoid the bonus times 'x101 multipler' for a 'dead heat' occuring, as the last dead heat was waaaay back in 1877.

    Of course, after saying this it will probably happen now (quantum multi-verse entanglement etc.) and a few of the rowers could pay off their parents college fees...
