Probably some value in redbridge there at 22/1, some bands above them there that I just can't see beating them on the day

GOOD POINT. Getting the top two places is very difficult and theres more than at least a dozen who are capable of doing it

Skelmanthorpe in shield better than 50/1

Based on?

(16th last year, 17th and a reprive the year before...)

"The defence rests m'lad"


Thanks, will add them in

This is a high class field with a lot of high class bands, I'm sure most would have said "I can't see Staines, Medway et al beating them at Stevenage" however...

Anyway of all the bands I have at "shorter win odds" none of them are without their chance OF WINNING if they play to form

(all of which IMVHO of course)

changed my mind on posting

Edit: Paddy your ranking system is by far the most up to date and realistic of all of them that I can see. Of course not perfect at a specific snapshot in time, but that's impossible. it's a million miles better than the rest out there who really don't properly reflect the true situation (there's is more about quantity than quality - yours takes both into account)
