Pretty predicatable to have those 4. Getting it down to 3 is slightly more tricky. I would say it depends on Lambert's form from now until the cut-off date - whenever that is. The big choice is whether to have Lambert or Cook in the top pair.

If Lambert keeps up his early season form then Woffinden, Lambert, Bewley seems the best choice.

LAMBERT scoring well in both Poland and Sweden

I think it's the other way round. Lambert's form has been top draw, it's Cook's form that's to be of concern

Cook can be top draw on his day but can also be so bad as shown in the GP.

I think the pick is easy for Rosco. It has to be Woffy, Lambert, Bewley. 

Lambert and Bewley have both just gone to another level so far this season. 

It all depends if Rossco is strong enough to make that phone call to a GP rider in Cook and say "you're not in".

With respect how do you think Bewley would fair in the GP at present.  I think we need to be careful, yes Bewley has done well at the NSS from reserve and number 2 but is up against Cook and Lambert who both have much more  international experience at World Cups and World u21 level. Yes Bewley has talent but lets be careful not to try  to fast track it too quickly.

Too much time can be spent on fannying around with the young guys and 'not too quickly' thinking.

Woffinden and Lambert are the obvious choice.
And let Dan Bewley explode on the scene at the NSS, if he can.
If he doesn't so be it; but the experience of being there will be well worth it.

tbh no one will know which CC could turn up on the day, no matter what his 'form' the week before.
Bewley is actually less of a risk and there is so much more to gain long term.

LET'S not forget the reserve (Under 21) doesn't have to ride... if Lambert and Woffinden can do the business having Bewley there for experience, and maybe an outing or two, will be great experience for the kid, which is what he is after all.

He's not really up against Cook and Lambert for a place. The real choice is between those two, rather than Bewley himself. If it's Cook that gets the nod, then Lambert is at reserve. If it's Lambert then Bewley is at reserve.

On form you'd probably choose Lambert for the main pair, giving Bewley the u-21 slot.

That's right.      Woffinden & Lambert are our team with Bewley as reserve.     GP rider or not Cook is out of form, says it himself.    If he has a great Prague GP then Rosco will have a nice problem.

I thought Pearson/Tatum said during the 1st GP that the pairs team had to be announced before the next GP.
