Perhaps you could continue this seasons Ante Post Comp until july 20th, maybe pat will be back by then?July 3, 2020 at 23:14 #1492605
Ista, there doesn’t appear to be much interest, but I’ll run it for one season, starting Monday.July 4, 2020 at 11:43 #1492651Nathan HughesParticipant

Good man bobbyJuly 4, 2020 at 16:49 #1492716
No probs Ista, hope you enjoy it
Yeah Nath, never quite understood that myself, but if I’m being honest, I’ll settle for similar this season lolJuly 4, 2020 at 18:18 #1492760EuroalienParticipant

I sure hope Pat is okay, seems strange for him to be gone for so long, especially with racing back.
I like the Ante Post Comp and will support it if you run it Bobby. It was hard to get excited about when we didn’t get scoring updates (no disrespect at all to Pat). I’m sure it’s a monster to manage.July 4, 2020 at 19:10 #1492770
The scoring will be regular Alien, and not tempting fate (famous last words lol) but looks quite straightforward to manage.July 4, 2020 at 23:35 #1492808Middle_Of_MarchParticipant

I’d be up for it again too VTC. Think this is the only one I’m any good at of the comps.
I think I’d have done ok this year with a few recent winners since the last updateJuly 5, 2020 at 00:37 #1492822
I’ll have a go Bobby but rubbish at Ante Post betting.
If you wouldn’t mind highlighting the latest day before the race when the AP bet has to be in that would be helpful to me as I often find I’ve missed it.
Thanks for taking over and hope that Pat will get in touch and isn’t poorly.
Got to know him so well over the years a great competition fan.Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...July 5, 2020 at 23:00 #1493007
Cheers Jac, I was thinking about doing that, but I’d be worried about making a mistake. Should be ok with the 48hrs Decs across the board on the flat.
I’ll try to keep people updated for jumps races.
Good man MoM, hopefully a few more winners this year.July 6, 2020 at 00:02 #1493028
Thanks Bobby don’t give yourself extra work. What I really meant was…
If you go AP for a horse running on the Saturday is Wednesday up to 12.00 midnight the deadline or is it Tuesday?
I can never work it out…JacThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...July 6, 2020 at 00:08 #1493033Red Rum 77Participant

Been giving it some thought myself, but unless I’ve had a bet myself in the race wouldn’t know which ones was balloted out. Was also thinking of unlimited selections per race as more is a disadvantage. Pat also let extra places count and I was going to include them but details of bookmakers had to be included along with their prices but not non runner no bet rules as it’s only a competition for fun.July 6, 2020 at 00:15 #1493035
Jac, deadline is usually 10am either 24 hours or 48 hours before the race, so for Saturday races it’ll be Thursday 10am for Flat, and Thursday or Friday 10am for Jumps.
Neil, obviously the extra places will count, I didn’t mention that as I thought it was a given, as was mentioning bookmakers.
I’ll deal with the ballots, it’s not a problem, it’ll only be an issue occasionally.
NRNB will definitely apply.
