Inter Forum Champions Day Competition versues Talkinghorses October 20th 2018
I have mailed Diamond Geezer about the possibility of this happening again
We have beaten Talkinghorses in both the first two years so would be nice to record a victory this year again.
I think it would be fair if someone from our forum runs it season ie scoring as Talkinghorses did the scoring the past two years please say if you’d like to score. all we need to do is find up to sixteen members willing to take part this year so please indicate your willingness to take part below. Thanks..
Talkinghorses have a thread up and have already attracted 10 players
Last years rules below
Entries can be made on either the Talking Horses Forum or The Racing Forum regardless of which team the player represents. Each team will consist of 16 players including one captain.
A draw is made on the Wednesday prior to the meeting whereby players are paired together and compete with each other by nominating one selection in each of the six races at Ascot’s Champions Day meeting with one selection noted as a nap.
The first player to be drawn out on each side will be the captain for this year’s contest.
A virtual £2 win bet will be placed on the nap with a virtual £1 win bet on your other selections.
In the event a nap is not nominated, all selections will be settled on a £1 win basis.
Stake money will not be included in any returns but losing selections result in losing the virtual stake.
If your selection is a non runner, the virtual stake is placed on the favourite for that race, however joint or co favourites will be settled accordingly.
For the purpose of this competition any Rule 4 deductions will be ignored.
Selections (one reserve for each race allowed) must be in by 1.15PM and no submissions or alterations are permitted thereafter.
In each match the winning player scores 3 points, a tie will be scored as 1 point each and the winning forum will be the one who scores most points.
If the result is a tie the accumulated profit (or loss) of all the players in their respective team will be the deciding factor.
If a team member fails to post selections, the captain’s selections are used again on behalf of that player.
If the captain fails to post selections on the day, the captain’s and all absent players score will be calculated as a losing selection on each race including one nap.
VTC please move to competitions if this is in the wrong section. I put it here to maybe encourage any new members that don’t always participate in the other comps to maybe have a go.Don't Eat The Pie and Don't Buy The S*nOctober 4, 2018 at 10:45 #1376316

I will go as a reserve Nathan. I will be in France that week before heading to Ascot for the main event. It will be tight, but I will fill in if you are still looking for players then. I’m sure you will get 16 before that.October 6, 2018 at 13:13 #1376550
