It’s still not too late to join the fun and see what kind of tipster you are
1 It’s still open to everyone, just pop your selections on the relevant thread. IE this one.
2 You’ve have one win selection and one each way selection.
3 Reserves are advised as many as you like, but will only be used if your main selection doesn’t run and in the order written if multiple.
4 The competition is a little shorter (20 weeks), however things happen in life so will count those with a minimum of 13 weeks. Those with less will go into a sub list.
5 Each Way will be quarter odds
6 Places will be the equivalent to Bookmakers standards for up to 20 runners;
that 2 for 5 to 7;
3 for 8 to 15;
4 for 16 to 20.
However for races with 21 to 24 I’m going 5 places, 25 to 28 6 places : anything above that 7 places.
7 For any runner which is left in the stall or refuses to race, I will count as a non runner but will keep the better place terms.
IE if 21 runners are down at start, but for some reason one doesn’t run leaving 20 runners I’ll still count the placings as 21 runners meaning 5 places still count.
Will check on either ITV Racing or Racing Post website.
8 I’ll be picking my races on Thursday night or Friday morning (small hours) so weather might interfere so I’ll make 2 races at different venues. One will be All Weather if such a meeting is on. I’ll do my best to keep to the better races but it’s not guarantee. If both are cancelled then I’m sorry but I work most Saturday afternoons so won’t be able to make any further alterations. The second race is only used if the first race get cancelled. Unless last minute reasons like 1993 Grand National.
9 You’ve got until race time to send your tips in. If main race meeting doesn’t pass inspection, the alternate race might be earlier so keep a eye on that.
10 I’m upping the stakes to 20 points win, each way 10 points these will be the main points, but for those getting first and second with either selections I will be adding in bonus points of whatever the C.S.F pays.
So each race has 42 points staked.
11 If for any reason you change your mind, as long as it’s before race time then that’s fine but no editing please, just make a new post. I will only count your last post if one is made.
12 Any trouble posting then send me a private messageJanuary 28, 2021 at 20:59 #1520166

Didn’t realise this had started over.
20 weeks – won’t that be half jumps and half flat? (Pity there isnt a comp for those who only like jumps). Looking forward to embarrassing myself in this.January 29, 2021 at 17:27 #1520240robnorthParticipant

QF : I like jumps myself, however some races will be on the flat as I going for the main handicap of Saturday. The alternate race will most likely be All Weather if such a meeting is on. The reserve race will only count if the my first choice is abandoned at the start of the day, not if the race is void like 1993 Grand National was. The alternate race is only put up because I work most Saturday’s so will not be able to make a last minute alternative race. 20 weeks takes you to 5th of June but you only have to do 13 weeks so maybe sit out those where I pick the flat.January 29, 2021 at 22:40 #1520293Michael WalshParticipant
