Upcoming event: March 2018.


The competition runs for 4 Days, it starts on Tuesday March 13th and ends on Friday March 16th.

There will be 3 prizes, Winner, Runner up & 3rd.
Winner = 30k
Runner up. = 15k
3rd = 5k


All you have to do is to Select a horse in every race over the 4 day festival.
And your selections for the day should be on here in time for the first race.
Once you have submitted your selections they cannot be changed.
Any problems, then PM me.

*Non runners: This year there will be NO changes made to your selections if they are non runners, its unfair on others who don't get to change their selection.*

Dead heats: = 1/2 the points.

1st. = 10 points
2nd. = 6 points
3rd. = 4 points
4th. = 2 points
5th. = 1 point

Races with 4 or less runners win only.
Races with 5-6-7 runners, 1st & 2nd only.
Races with 8 -15 runners 1st 2nd 3rd only.
Races with 16+ handicaps 1st 2nd 3rd 4th.

Results will be taken from William Hill.

Everyday you can NAP one of your selections and you will be rewarded with Double points for your NAP if it WINS!

Who ever has the most points at the end of the Festival is the winner!
Prizes for this competition are, the winner will get v£30000 the runner up v£15000 and 3rd place v£5000.
But above all...they get the title!

Also just realised that St Pats is on a Saturday this year, that is not going to help my contributions to the “am I an alcoholic” thread :D

Potentially heavy ground could throw a real spanner in the works for my ante post bets - here's hoping for some dry and milder conditions!

Can't bloody wait for Tuesday now...
