    Prize

    The winner of this year competition will receive a prize courtesy of Cormack15. More details to follow

    Thank you Cormack

    RULES

    You select 1 horse in each race over the course of the meeting
    In one race per day you can select 2 horses
    You may chose 1 nap per day (please make clear)
    NAP selections score double for WIN ONLY
    You can pick a next best (NB) as a reserve for your Nap in case of being a non runner
    If Nap is a N/R and your NB is a non runner the reserve of your Nap will become the Nap. (no reserve no nap)
    Entries have to be in before first race of each day, if for whatever reason you are late post your entries still for later races which will be accepted but you will get hit with 20% point deduction for that day
    Strictly no Edits after the off time of 1st race, all points on that day will be deducted
    You may included as many reserves as you like but cannot add any after the time of the first race

    Please check your own scores, whilst every attempt is made to get scores 100% accurate mistakes do take place from time to time, please bring to my attention as soon as possible any differences between my scoring and your own. Thanks

    WINNER

    will be the person with the highest score of all the 5 days combined. In the event of a tie the winner will be the person between the tied competitors with the highest score for day 1. If still tied highest score from day 2 and so on.

    In the case of disputes my decision will be final
