The Sentinel Celts Grand Annual Naps Competition-Part Four

The Sentinel Celts Grand Annual Naps Competition commences on 19 August. This time,it will run until the last day of Royal Ascot. A minor tweak to the rules will see the introduction of two Jokers,to be played on the Saturday of your choice,with double the odds if they win.

The site has been fortunate in having terrific contributors. And very generous ones too. TWISTY has sponsored the NAPS competition for the last few years,but unfortunately personal circumstances mean that he cannot guarantee the time to do so this year. 

So the site will provide half of the prize money this year,with that total being matched by 16 ROADS.

Tho other three Naps competitions will also take place as usual. CHALMERSBHOY has very kindly offered to sponsor the ones at Cheltenham and Aintree,while the RA one will be my own. Very generous offers indeed,I’m sure you will agree. And 16 ROADS,CHALMERSBHOY and TWISTY all have our grateful thanks. 

As always,the competition will be run on a separate page and selections will ONLY be accepted on that page. Entry is free,but a charitable donation of your choice is requested but not mandatory. It’s only a bit of fun,after all! 

The rules are simple. One Nap selection every Saturday.

Selections from any meeting in UK and Ireland on the Saturday only,though any non-runner can be replaced prior to the “off” of that race. Any not replaced will automatically go onto the favourite in the last race on the Saturday evening. Winning Jokers will have the SP of their selection doubled,and each Joker displayed in the updated table. 

Prize money as follows:

Winner-£150

2nd-£60

3rd-£40

Good luck with this to everyone,and may the best Napster win!

******

ADDITIONAL PRIZE FROM CHALMERSBHOY

Thanks Bobby for running this competition and to 16 roads for his generosity also great thanks to TWISTY for running this competition previously.

Running alongside the nap competition will be chance to win a £10 bet for your chosen charity,you can bet it on anything you wish.

The most winners in each month will win.

IF tied on winners it will be decided on who amassed the highest pay out to a £1 stake.

Put your selection in before the first race,and welcome aboard. The rules are short and straightforward,and contained in the article. Fortunately,even starting now,you aren’t that far behind,and the competition is not yet at halfway,finishing on the Saturday of Royal Ascot.

I make it only one winner,JOBO at 7/2 to keep the pressure on at the top of the table.

A couple of Jokers played too. Voguepunter and Twisty. I’m saving mine for the off chance that I might spot a horse worth using it on!

Jobo Baldie
January 8, 2024 6:13 pm

Is it 1 joker each during the season?

Twisty

Just a quick horse related message.

Katie ( Scott) and I will be purchasing a horse at the Newmarket sales in Feb ( or the online Doncaster sales should we fail to find one we think is suitable at Newmarket) .
It’s for a syndicate consisting of primarily Hamilton park annual members . Maximum of 20 people at 5% ownership each

There are 2 shares left ( at the time of writing this) which I’m happy to let go to people regardless of whether or not they are annual members.

We are targeting a horse primarily suited to Hamilton given that’s the local course of the members. Jason ( Hart) would be riding it assuming he’s available on the particular day of course.

We’ve set a purchase budget of £12k, meaning if we spend the entire budget, each member will pay £600 for their 5% share. Ongoing costs to covering training, transport, race entry fees, lead up fees etc will be £100 per month

Obviously if we pick up a horse for £10k it’ll be £500 per member @ 5%, then £100 per month.

Syndicate will run for 12 months at which point we will decide to sell or keep. If the unanimous decision is to keep, anyone wishing to leave at that point can still do so.

That’s the gist of it. Anyone interested or needing more info just shout.

I’ve set up a whattsapp group with Katie and the 18 others, where updates and videos from Katie will be posted as well as running plans etc.

We will almost certainly purchase a sprinter. Competition for ‘stayers’ is more intense at the sales since you end up competing with the jumps buyers.

As I say , couple spots left if anyone interested.

I should emphasise the syndicate is set up to be non profit making from a management perspective. I’m not applying a ‘management fee’ All prize money shared equally amongst members.

Only one winner last week,folks. JOBO with a very nice 7/2 shot taking the honours. This time of year is always difficult,the focus is very much on Cheltenham and the prep races before and after Christmas. This week is like Donkey Derby Day,but the winners are there in every race…

Thanks
Catalogue for Newmarket and Doncaster sales will be published soon. Hopefully we will get something that can win us a few races. ( whilst Katie will obviously have the final say on it, I’ll be adding my expertise by telling her to make sure there’s a leg in each corner 😁)

Actually the timing couldn’t have worked out worse for me. I’m off to Dubai a week on Friday so will miss the sales AND the Cheltenham trials at Musselburgh.

That’s what happens when you allow the other half freedom to make decisions on travel arrangements!
