As I am feeling in an extremely generous mood (a rare occurrance), I have decided to run a Cheltenham Festival-themed quiz, and am offering as a prize to the winner One Club Enclosure Ticket to Champion Chase Day at Cheltenham on Wednesday March 14th.
Much of the quiz is historically-based, in order to stop people simply clicking though the Racing Post website, but all of the answers can be found online if you look hard enough.
Please PM me the answers, do not post them on this thread. In the case of a dead-heat, a random draw will take place to decide the winner. Closing date for receipt of entries is 10.30pm on Sunday.
The question-master’s decision is final, there will be no cash alternative, blah blah blah…….
I will post the results on here as soon as I can after the close of the quiz and the winner will be posted his/her ticket by recorded delivery on Monday. Apologies for the lateness of this quiz but it was a bit of a spur-of-the-moment thing!
Fill in the gaps:
1. 1st Bula, 2nd XXX, 3rd Major Rose<br>2. 1st XXX, 2nd Monksfield, 3rd Dramatist<br>3. 1st Silver Buck, 2nd XXX, 3rd Sunset Cristo<br>4. 1st Burrough Hill Lad, 2nd Brown Chamberlain, 3rd XXX<br>5. 1st See You Then, 2nd Flatterer, 3rd XXX<br>6. 1st XXX, 2nd CavvieÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Clown, 3rd Beau Ranger

Sadly I must declare myself a non-runner due to no available flights to Ireland from either Bristol or Birmingham later that evening.March 11, 2007 at 17:11 #44668Happy JackParticipant
