    Everyone is welcome to partake even our gamble… :rose:
    Please read rules as you can miss out on extra points

    The competition will run from 12th until 15th March

    PRIZE

    None as yet, Cormack usually comes up trumps failing that the pride of being TRF Cheltenham King or Queen 2019 will suffice

    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

    SELECTIONS

    I will post up the races nearer the time and a separate selections thread too

    SCORING

    In all races of up to 4 runners – only the winner scores
    In all races of 5, 6 or 7 runners – the first two score
    In all races of 8 to 15 runners – the first three score
    In all races of 16 to 21 runners – the first four score
    In all races of 22 or more runners – the first five score

    *please note these places are for both handicap and no handicap

    MISTAKES

    I do have a little brain but
    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 the 4 days combined will be the winner. In the event of a tie the winner will be the person between the tied competitors with the highest score for any individual day. If still tied highest winning NAP between those tied.

    In the case of disputes my decision will be final

    Thanks for putting up the races Nathan :good:
    I might try to put in my choices for Tuesday and Wednesday on Monday as I’m away next week from Monday night, and Thursday and Friday also together when I’m over there as will be dependent on Hotel WiFi.
    Hope that’s ok..Jac :rose:

    Love how grundy and kevcal were the top two on day one, and the bottom two on day two!

    Day three is very hard. I have about six listed on my shortlist for each race!

    Thanks Nathan.
