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No reserve selections if a dog is withdrawn (hopefully none).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.

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

With a book running at 252.3% overround I’m glad you’re not a bookie!
Will see if I can pick 6 tomorrow (if I’m not called into work!)

Just put the prices up to ruffle a few feathers and so far it’s worked.

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 ***************
ps I’d best start saving for the winners bottle !!!!August 21, 2004 at 10:52 #88964ZZASSMember

Updates after the first results, a few shocks but you can see how you and your forum are going.
Spreadsheet can be found here:
ps ZZass, competition was well under way mate but I will keep your score for you (cos you were on ex DR, I think)August 27, 2004 at 19:50 #88966
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>TrevorAugust 29, 2004 at 21:31 #88967

ps the ‘bit’ on the link that’s missing is [removed]September 12, 2004 at 10:39 #88969
Updates after last night’s semi finals can now be found on the link below :
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>September 22, 2004 at 17:38 #88970
