Will the 2nd VIII or the women get into the 1st division first?
The women are surely far too low in the rankings, starting 1st in division 2, but after holding off Queens they will be hard pushed to take a fast Darwin crew before the Darwin crew bumps out. The 2nd VIII could also move into the top flight on day one if they can manage the extraordinary and take down Caius II in Div 2 followed by Peterhouse in Div 1 as sandwich boat. Who will do it first?
Men II  19%
Women I  45%
both manage it on same day  19%
neither manage it all week  5%
Men III  12%
