Following on from the competition in the Cheltenham thread I thought it might be an idea to have a racing competition running throughout the year. There seems to be a good few people who like a punt on the horses. It's open to anyone, if you are a serious punter or just like a Saturday bet it makes no difference, you don't even have to know much about racing, the more the better.
I will pick one meeting every Saturday and you will have to give a selection for every race at that one meeting.
Points scoring.......10 for winner, 5 for a second and 3 for a third..............Also to have an added dimension there will be extra points for every winner at 4-1 or better, this is to reward better priced winners. So the extra points would be scored as follows
A winner between 4-1 and 4.99 would get an extra 4 points
A winner between 5-1 and 5.99 would get an extra 5 points etc............
This would continue up the scale, so for example a 33-1 winner would get an extra 33 points.The SP will be how this is calculated.
Non Runners will automatically go onto the favourite..........if more than one favourite it will be the horse nearest the top of the racecard.
Please give a nap
for inexperienced players this means the one of your selections which you think is mostly likely to win, just put (nap) after the horses name, if it wins it will double your score from 10 to 20 but the SP points will NOT be doubled.
Entries will only be included if posted before "the off" of the first race on the Saturday.
If we get a few interested I will do the scoring, if not I won't bother
Sign in below if you want to give it a go.......will start next Saturday if there's enough.
FK, sicknote, hawkins are in already.
