    With The Arc been and gone, I thought I’d get the ball rolling to give those who’re interested, plenty of notice.

    Here’s a reminder of last years competition, which had a very good winner in Buckers…..

    http://theracingforum.co.uk/forums/topic/trf-ten-to-follow-201718/

    I think the list of Bonus Races has settled pretty well the last few seasons, however I’ve dropped the old Racing Post Chase at Kempton, and replaced it with The Becher Chase, so there’s another Handicap in there in it’s place. I’ve also added the G1 Ascot Chase.

    *******To help me out a bit, can I ask you all to please remember to include your star horse, and also, if you could do your lists in Alphabetical order, and not do them in Capital letters, or in bold, and also NOT number them, then that would be much appreciated, it really does save me a lot of extra typing*******

    Hopefully we’ll get a good turnout, and best of luck to you all.

    Rules and Points of Info

    2018/19 TRF Ten to Follow Rules

    1. Pick 10 horses to follow throughout this jump season, during the period from Saturday 3rd November 2018, to Saturday 4th May 2019.

    2. Entries will be closed once the first race of the day is under way, on Saturday 3rd November 2018.

    3. Results will only count from Jump Races in Great Britain, and Ireland.

    4. The Winner, and Runner Up, will receive a cash prize. This final amount has yet to be confirmed, but I’ll confirm once finalised.

    5. In the Event of a dead heat, points will be divided.

    6. No points for a walkover

    7. Pick any 10 horses of your choice.

    8. Winning points will be taken from RP Website.

    9. In the event of a tie, the entry with most points from Bonus Races will be decided. If still tied, then highest scorer at Cheltenham will be the winner. If still undecided then those with most points from +£30k races will win……and so on. If a winner has still to be decided, then those with the biggest return for one race will get the prize, or those with the most 100 point scores, in the event of multiple 100 point winners.

    10. Entrants can amend their lists before the 3rd November Deadline, if a horse is injured**, lame, sold overseas, or if connections publicly state the horse will be staying over the flat.

    **injured will refer to a physical injury, or of course a fatality. This will not include horses who are rested, or on the sidelines, due to being “under the weather”, “not pleasing during workouts”, “bad scopes” etc. I will continually bump a list of horses who are unlikely to be out any time soon, so if you could refer to that, it would be appreciated.

    11. After the last race on Saturday 26th January 2019, a Transfer Window will run until 1200 on Saturday 9th February 2019. Entrants can change 2 horses over during this window, however, you will not be able to nominate a new star horse at this time.

    Points
    1.IN A RACE WORTH £30,000 OR MORE TO THE WINNER = 25 points
    IN A RACE WORTH £25,000 UP TO £29,999 TO THE WINNER = 20
    IN A RACE WORTH £15,000 UP TO £24,999 TO THE WINNER = 15
    IN A RACE WORTH £10,000 UP TO £14,999 TO THE WINNER = 12
    IN A RACE WORTH LESS THAN £10,000 TO THE WINNER = 10

    I’ll take the prize money from The Racing Post website, which would save me from converting Euros to Pounds for Irish races.

    2.Tote dividend points will be awarded according to the official totewin including a £1 unit stake – as follows:

    Win dividend – straight conversion from £’s to points. For example for a £7.70 win dividend the horse is awarded 7.7 points, £14.80 is awarded 14.80 points etc.

    3. There will be no limit the amount a horse can win on one single race.

    4. Entrants can nominate a Star Horse, which will give them double points. In the event that a star horse is not nominated before the competition starts, then the first horse alphabetically, will be your star horse. You cannot nominate a new star horse after the transfer window.

    5. An additional 25 points will be awarded to the winner and 12 points to the runner-up in each of the following races:

    BETVICTOR GOLD CUP
    BETFAIR CHASE
    LADBROKES TROPHY
    BECHER CHASE
    DECEMBER GOLD CUP (Cheltenham)

    6. An additional 14 points will be awarded to the winner and 8 points to the runner-up in any other race at The Cheltenham Festival.

    Looking forward to it this year, after a welcome summer break, and hopefully you will all enjoy it.

    Hi VTC, looks like it’s that time of year again. Added the usual to the prize pot. Already compiling my list but might just wait a little, could need tinkering with a little. :good:
