The winner of this year's competition was Lewis Palmer, who correctly predicted four winners: Fulford, Avery, Aiton and Magee. A bottle of Lanson Black Label champagne will be sent to him. He only missed out on the case by saying that Patel would win the Selectors (in fact, nobody saw Granger-Brown as the winner - not even Granger-Brown!).

Lewis had identical selections (scoring 33 points) to Steve Woolnough but fortunately I took the precaution of asking each for their second choices for use as a tie-break and Lewis's were easily better.

Third place went to Jerry Stark (32.5). He predicted three winners, but Williams and Morrow let him down.

The full results were:

8 points: Fulford
7 Maugham
6 Dyer
5 Mulliner
4 Clarke
3 Goacher
2 Kirby
1 Dawson

8 Avery
7 Death
5.5 Irwin, Gibbons
4 Harrison-Wood
3 Cordingly
2 Kibble
1 Wilkins

8 Aiton
6 Heap, Taylor, Tibble
3.5 Foulser, Mundy
2 Lines
1 Jenkins

8 Magee
7 Smith
5.5 Castell, Williams
3.5 Bradforth, Guest
2 Whittaker
1 Dent

8 Granger-Brown
7 Bottomly
6 Hector
5 Cowing
4 Carter
3 Morrow
2 Weston
1 Patel
0 points, but in order of finishing: Smith, Evans, Browne, Bennett, Arliss, Symonds, Southern, Hopewell
