Saturday Tipping Competition

The third week of this month's tipping competition. Dive for cover! It's warming up. As yet, the pro competitors are shooting clear of the field - gallant in their two-finger salute to all who dare look ahead. Davison (pro) - bolstered by last month's win - fired a scud missile of a winner in his attempt to depose Jodonovan (pro) from his bunker at the top of the leader table. But in an astute military riposte [from an evasive Passato Sotto] John dropped a hefty mortar bomb stunning his rivals to lead with 21pts. Davidson has 17pts in second place. Next best is Stephenson (free) on 9pts, with Rawnsley (pro) on 5pts in fourth. Most tipsters have struggled to find their aim - keeping their powder dry - but with two weeks to go I'm expecting a couple of petrol bombs to be slung over my fence this weekend. 1PM Deadline. Good luck to all.
