Royal Ascot 2024 - Tipping Comp

Post by r99c »

The finest week in horse racing is back with a bang folks - let's go.

Image

All the regulars know the rules but for any newcomers:

Give selections for each race on each one of the 5 days, for example post your Tuesday picks on Tuesday morning, Wed picks on Wed morning etc, or anytime before that days racing, as some people need to post their picks the night before.

Points scoring is 10 for winner, 5 for a second and 3 for a third. A dead heat will be disregarded and full points awarded for whatever place it may be. 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 4.99/1 would get an extra 4 points
A winner between 5/1 and 5.99/1 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. There is no cap! The SP will be how this is calculated.

!! Please also give one NAP per day, 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.
If you fail to give a NAP, you will lose it!

Non Runners will automatically go onto the favourite, but if more than one co-favourite it will be the horse nearest the top of the racecard.

If you PM me with a replacement for your non-runner or post it in this thread it will count as long as it's before the race time.

Late entries welcome but of course you won't get points for races you miss - entries will only be included if posted before "the off" of the first race on that particular day.

I will try to post the results each evening up to Friday, but I am actually attended the action on the Saturday in some swanky hospitality prize that I somehow managed to win following my filling out a survey on my experience last year :grin:

Good luck to everyone!

Thursday results will be slightly delayed too due to Foo Fighters, and then Friday and Saturday results will likely both be posted on Sunday, should've mentioned that!

Hugely excited for this. This is without doubt my favourite week of racing and these competitions definitely add to the fun. I know it’s a lot of work so thanks for r99c for organising.

My Tuesday fancies are below.

14.30 - Dolayli
15.05 - Catalyse
15.45 - Regional
16.25 - Notable Speech NAP
17.05 - Divine Comedy
17.40 - Botanical
18.15 - Belloccio

I’m not about in the day, so if there are any non runners I’d like to go with: Facteur Cheval, Camille Pissarro, Twilight Calls, Henry Longfellow, Berkshire Rocco, Torito and Fox Journey. The way this season has gone so far I have no doubt that my ‘second string’ will get more points than my actual picks!

Good luck everyone.
