R8 Million Pick 6 – Let’s Go For It

Who said the Currie Cup isn't won in May...?

The Greyville Gold Cup day Pick 6 pool on 27 July benefits from a carryover injection of R2 million and is expected to reach R8 million – and maybe even more, judging from the Durban July day betting feast, which saw the six-legged exotic soar to record levels and past the R22 million mark.

William Milkovitch and his merry band of Sporting Post People’s Perm supporters still have a balance in the kitty from their July day endeavours and the team player indicates that unanimous suggestion from all involved  is that we have a go on next Saturday’s Super Saturday/Gold Cup Pick 6.

In addition, most have suggested that they would want to top-up or add to their % equity.

“I would simply like to suggest that those who choose to top-up, feel free to do so, with whatever amount. Conversely, those who feel that they just want their equity portion to “let it ride”….your wish is my command,” says William.

He points out that there has been a diverse opinion as to the number of perms and the % thereof.

“I certainly welcome this diversity, as it’s where I derive my enjoyment and excitement with regards communal bets. As we wagered a 100 % and 1% cover Pick Six perm on July Day, I feel it is only appropriate to venture a ‘middle of the road’ % perm, this time around.Kindly note that this option has not been decided on yet.”

He asks that members please remember to highlight their first, second & third choices in the requested colour shades on the selection template.

“This is crucial, as I use it as the main indicator as to whether a choice might have to be eliminated due to the constraints of budget, costing & acceptable percentage (%) wagered.Remember, you are not restricted to the THREE selection only – gladly select a fourth or fifth choice if you feel a particular leg is impossible.”

Note that the Gold and the four Gr1’s declare at 11h00 on Thursday – balance of the card on Monday 22 July.

In a reference to the passing on Tuesday of one of our great recording artists of the modern era, William says in closing:

“In the words of the great man, we and our selections are merely The Scatterlings of Africa…”
