    Hi Guys

    Listed below are the 96 runners left in the competition and next to each dog is the handicap points start your dog receives if selected. Rules are as follows :<br>1 entry per person.<br>6 selections per person.<br>As many as possible from each Forum<br>Points awarded in each heat (starting 2nd round next Saturday) and including the final are : 1st = 6 2nd = 5 3rd = 4 4th = 3 5th = 2 and 6th = 1.<br>If a dog fails to finsh a race (god forbid) you will recieve 1pt.<br>No reserve selections if a dog is withdrawn (hopefully none).<br>Once selections are eliminated the points won, will be accrued to your final total.<br>The player with the most points after the final (Sept 18th) will be deemed the winner and will receive a bottle free gratis from myself. If 2 players have the same points they will receive 1/2 bottle each and if 3 or more winners I’ll drink it myself !!!<br>As this competition is also an inter forum challenge, the top 3 scores from each forum will be added together to give the forum champions (no prize, just prestige)

    Forums taking part are hopefully :

    Belle Vue Owners<br>Hove Owners<br>Bestofthebets<br>Bookiebusters<br>Final Furlong<br>Talking Horses<br>Expert Betting<br>Flappers Dream<br>System Betting<br>The Racing Forum<br>Punting For Profit<br>and Hosts<br>Escorial Racing

    I am at the moment trying to make a link on your own forum to go direct to a spreadsheet, which will be updated with the scores after each round.

    Droopys Scholes  1<br>Droopys Maldini  1<br>Never Give Up  1<br>Persian Ruler  1<br>Mineola Farloe  1<br>Droopys Shearer  2<br>Make All  2<br>Royal Emperor  2<br>Tomsheaboy  2<br>Droopys Marco  2<br>Escholido  3<br>Geldrops Touch  3<br>Indian Ruler  3<br>Smiling Man  3<br>Borna Pilot  3<br>Deerfield Site  4<br>Disguised  4<br>Dundrum Prince  4<br>Enchanting Hero  4<br>Kilfera King  4<br>Legal Moment  5<br>World Class  5<br>Chipp Lad  5<br>Frazzled  5<br>Great Lark  5<br>Like A Shot  6<br>Sound Sense  6<br>Ballymac Floss  6<br>Enlightened View  6<br>Express Hancho  6<br>Fat Budgie  7<br>Move Lace  7<br>Satellite Flight  7<br>The Other Domino  7<br>Balintore Brave  7<br>Beauty Expert  8<br>Blackstone Woody  8<br>Chadding Home  8<br>Farloe Cricketer  8<br>Goblet Of Fire  8<br>Holburn Major  9<br>Nikita Billie  9<br>Oran rainbow  9<br>Sobering Thought  9<br>Valentia Citrate  9<br>Cavecourt Jon  10<br>Dark Star Safari  10<br>Bookie Burglar  10<br>Chucky Our Paw  10<br>Hi King Closure  10<br>Jamiemac Jack  11<br>Jordans Spark  11<br>Kafima  11<br>Last Invitation  11<br>Mind Henry  11<br>Petes Noble  11<br>Rhincrew Shergar  12<br>Ronans Delight  12<br>Count Gelignite  12<br>Confident Bet  12<br>Detagh Davy  12<br>Dog Almighty  13<br>Droopys Romeo  13<br>Have Ago Hero  13<br>Lughill Angel  13<br>Mountleader Gara  13<br>Rock Hill  14<br>The Other Rebel  14<br>Trajectory Line  14<br>Two Shanes  14<br>Tyrur Jim  14<br>Blacluan Flight  15<br>Bricken Jack  15<br>Calahonda Dancer  15<br>Churchtown Luck  15<br>Zigzag Stewart  15<br>Iceman Merlin  16<br>Reigning Champ  16<br>Tamna Rolo  16<br>Teds World Cup  16<br>The Other Donagh  16<br>Weirsound Pookie  17<br>Zigzag Hurricane  17<br>Classy Show  17<br>Glencole  17<br>Jimmy Grimble  17<br>Black Bravado  18<br>Distant Fields  18<br>Dynasty Beauty  18<br>Glenshane Ranger  18<br>Mauritus King  18<br>Mexico  20<br>Starboard Bow  20    <br>Sandyhill Lark  20<br>Scorduff Jamie  20<br>Aero Star  20<br>Setanta  20

    Please read the above rules carefully and if I’ve missed anything out, bring it forward now, it’s my first try at having an inter forum challenge so there may be a few hiccups.<br>Now all you have to do is make your 6 selections ( a favourite with 1 pt start and go a long way or an outsider with 20 pts in the bank ).<br>Once you have your selections, please reply to this thread WITH the handicap start and I will transfer them to the host site’s spreadsheet.<br>WEDNESDAY 18TH August @ 7PM IS THE DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br>So come on guys and gals, if not just for a bottle, do it for your forum, to prove a point, it’s all for nowt and after your hard work selecting your dogs, just sit back, relax and enjoy the racing.<br>Just to add a bit of spice IF I were a bookie ( which I am NOT) I would price the top forum up as :<br>Belle Vue Owners 6/4<br>Hove Owners 6/4<br>Bestofthebets 3/1<br>Bookiebusters 5/1<br>Final Furlong 3/1<br>Talking Horses 5/1<br>Expert Betting 5/1<br>Flappers Dream 5/1<br>System Betting 6/1<br>The Racing Forum 7/1<br>Punting For Profit 7/1<br>Escorial Racing 5/1

    That should cause a few ripples

    Best regards<br>Trevor

    ps I will be putting in an appearance for Escorial Racing

    With a book running at 252.3% overround I’m glad you’re not a bookie!

    :biggrin:

    Will see if I can pick 6 tomorrow (if I’m not called into work!)

    Hi Guys

    What a grand response to the competition.

    91 entries from 12 forums.

    As the date for the entries is over, 2 players have entered dogs that are only in as reserves so I have put in 2 dogs off the same handicap, at least that gives them a fair start:<br>Dave H from Bookiebusters Count Gelegnite if N/R is now Detagh Davy.<br>Neil from Bookiebusters Zigzag Stewart if N/r is now Blacluan Flight.

    As this promises to be one of the classic Derby’s and as everyone has put a lot of effort into picking their selections I am feeling generous this morning and will award :

    ********* 1 extra point for each heat winner including the FINAL ************

    This is a bonus point and will be added into the running totals.

    I am just finishing off the spreadsheet which will be hopefully available on the host site<br>www.Escorial Racing by tomorrow morning, I will update it asap after every round so you can keep track of not only your selections, but all of the leaders. I am sure if I have made any mistakes you will soon let me know !!!

    I know there is a lot of rivalry between 2 of the forums ( I wont name them but look at the number of entries from them) They know who they are so best of luck to both !!

    Thanks to all who have entered and hopefully this will give my sport of Greyhound Racing a much needed boost.

    Anyway my little pinkies are 2 inches shorter than last night due to all the typing of names, forums and 546 dogs, so I am off to wrap them around a nice cup of tea!!!!

    I will post the link on here as soon as it is available.

    **************** best of luck to all ***************

    Best Regards<br>Trevor

    ps I’d best start saving for the winners bottle !!!!

    Hi All

    Tomorrow night sees the next 8 heats of this great race, nothing can be taken for granted. Right through to the very last heat, there are mouth watering clashes, but heat 8 to me is the best of the bunch. Will Make All crack out and make all or will Shearer lead all the way on the outside or will Frazzled come with a super late burst to catch them all. All will be revealed by 10.20 tomorrow night !!<br>I cannot wait and in my excitement I am going to give:<br>***** 2 bonus points to each heat winner *****<br>Best of luck to all players and forums but most of all to the dogs, I hope they all come home safe and sound.

    Best regards<br>Trevor

    Hi All

    Updates after last night’s semi finals can now be found on the link below :

    http://www.[removed]
    .co.uk/cgi-bin/greyhounds/db.cgi

    Millerlad fom Belle Vue has now taken over at the top and looks the winner with 3 of his selections in the final, even without the controversial bonus points, he would still be there, never mind it has been a grand competition throughout and best of luck to all 6 dogs in next weeks final.

    A special mention must go to Ste of Escorial Racing who has 4 dogs in the final 6.

    Also Millerlad, Chocoholic, Silky and Grundy have 3 each in the final.

    Very close for the top forum with : Belle Vue Owners just shading Flappers Dream, Final Furlong, Escorial Racing and Hove Owners. This one will go to the wire.

    I will be in Ibiza for the final and will update when I return next Wednesday.

    Thanks to all for entering your selections and thanks to the forum administrators for their help.

    Hopefully I will run another competition in the near future if all forums are interested.

    Thanks and regards<br>Trevor<br>
