    Saturday the 4th July

    RULES PLEASE READ AS CHANGES FOR THIS COMPETITION

    Please select 2 horses per race (plus as many reserves as you like)
    Instead of choosing a Nap you instead have a power play
    The power play will be used for two races of your choice but the races have to be one after another so for example you pick race 1 you have to have race 2 as well. if you chose race 4 you have to have race 5 aswell.
    Power Plays score double the points for each horse in each position that is available for points.

    I hope I have explained that well enough

    please make clear which races you want as power plays but remember they must be next to each other

    no edits, please make another post
    late entries will lose 10% of points
