Hi – welcome to Week 1 of the intherefirst.com Tipping Premiership. Following the pre-season activity all the players have now been assigned a league and we are now ready to begin the action proper.
Each Saturday every player makes 5 selections plus at least 2 reserves (more reserves if you wish). They then go head to head against a different player each week with the object being to perform better than their opponent, as judged by their level stakes profit/loss.
The winner will be awarded 3 points, the loser none. In the event of a draw both players will be awarded 1 point each.
Selection rules are the same as for the pre-season weeks but please note that this weekends Breeders Cup series WILL COUNT for the competition.
So, any questions let me know. In the meantime please post your week 1 selections below and good luck to everyone.

Apologies for posting so early, as I appreciate I may get a few NR’s (hence 5 reserves!!!). I am away for the weekend from Thursday so I have to post early. Corm said this would be OK. I’ve chosen one likely runner in the Charlie Hall and 4 Breeders Cup selections in order to try and ensure I get some runners!

Quick note regarding Brreders Cup.
Prices used to calculate winnnings will be American dividends NOT British bookies trade prices. In the event that your horse is coupled with another for betting purposes you will only be granted a winner if your named horse wins. Hope that’s clear. If not let me know.October 25, 2005 at 23:25 #82411Racing DailyParticipant

So, if you pick one of two that are coupled you would get ‘paid out’ at only the coupled odds ie. if horse 1 and 1a are coupled, you choose horse 1a only but get paid out at the odds for both coupled?<br>It might be worth avoiding coupled horses altogether if that is the case. I wouldn’t wanna get paid at 1.1 for a 3/1 shot coupled with a 4/7 shot. Just clarifying here :)October 26, 2005 at 13:49 #82412LetsGetRacingMember

If two horses are coupled there is only one price available about them as a pair, one reflecting both of their chances combined. But if you back horse 1a, and horse 1 wins, you still hold a winning ticket.
As such, I think tipping a coupled winner, whether the actual horse stated wins or not, should be counted. The tip, after all, would yield a return.October 26, 2005 at 17:54 #82413
Keeping it simple –
OK – I agree then – coupled horses will be settled as per the returns from America.
If your named horse is coupled with others for betting purposes then you are on them all and get paid out, for the competition purposes, at the ‘official’ American returns.October 28, 2005 at 18:28 #82414LetsGetRacingMember

Just to confirm that there are not any couplings in Breeders’ Cup races – they stopped doing that a few years ago.
I’m going to make all my selections at Belmont Park although the Charlie Hall sounds tempting from here!
