Mahe / Bobby will put up a place here for your selections. In addition to the detail below, can I add, ALL SELECTIONS FOR THE DAY MUST BE SUBMITTED PRIOR TO THE FIRST RACE THAT DAY. ANY POSTED AFTER THE FIRST RACE WILL NOT COUNT TOWARDS YOUR TOTAL PROFIT. ( unless of course it’s to replace a non runner)
Don’t have me feeling bad by disqualifying late entries.
Cheltenham kicks off on Tuesday as most of you will know.
As a wee bit of fun, here’s a wee extra competition. ( please note it does not count towards the Saturday naps competition).
Each Napster who wishes to participate should select two horses on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
That’s 1 horse from 2 DIFFERENT RACES at Cheltenham on each of those 3 days.
So, over the first 3 days you’ll have selected 6 horses.
The points will be accumulated thus:
Winner = 10 points PLUS 1 point staked at the SP
2nd = 5 points ( no bonus points)
3rd = 3 points ( no bonus points)
So – if your selection wins at 8/1, you’ll get 18points.
That’s 10 for the win plus 1 point at 8/1 = 18 total.
2nd and will simply get the 5points
3rd will get the 3points
If you win at 6/4 fav you’d therefore get 11.5 points
That’s 10 for the win plus 1.5 for the 6/4 SP.
After the 3 days – the punter with most points will get a £20 free bet on the Gold Cup on the Friday. It can be any bet you wish. £10 each way, £20 win, forecast, whatever. The bet will be staked with Paddy Power.
I won’t be updating non runners so please check yourself that your horse is running. If you do have a non runner you’ll have to reselect on the day. Miss it on the day and I’m afraid you can’t have 3 the next day. You’ll be on to plums.
I’ll update the results daily.
Here is a previous article which includes some stats from The Guardian and some indepth analysis from a leading stable. Caveat Emptor as always,and good luck!
