OK, Here goes this Saturday's 606 v2 Horse Racing Tipping Competition. This weeks competition revolves around the televised races on Channel Four, with a massive eight races to choose from, i'm sure we will all be able to come up with a few winners hidden away in some of the races. The rules are as follows -

You have eight races to choose from .... Links to the racecards are at the bottom of this page.
Select FOUR horses from any of the eight races listed (No more than one horse in any race)
The selected races are - 1.50, 2.25, 3.00, 3.35 from Ascot. 2.10, 2.45, 3.20 from Haydock and the 3.45 from Wincanton.
From your FOUR selections you must nominate a NAP and a NEXT BEST

Scoring is as follows -

Each Nap Will Have a 3pt Stake Placed At SP - ALL RETURNS INCLUDING STAKE WILL COUNT TOWARDS YOUR FINAL POINTS TOTAL
Each Next Bext Will Have a 2pt Stake Placed At SP - AGAIN AS ABOVE RE STAKE AND FINAL POINTS TOTAL
Each Remaining Selection Will Have A 1pt Stake Placed At SP - AGAIN AS ABOVE RE STAKE ETC
You Will Receive 2 Pts Bonus If You Get ONE WINNER
You Will Receive 4 Pts Bonus If You Get TWO WINNERS
You Will Receive 6 Pts Bonus If you get THREE WINNERS
You Will Receive 10 Pts Bonus If you get FOUR WINNERS

If one of your selections is a NON RUNNER your stake will automatically be placed on the FAVOURITE in that race (joint fav means your stake will be spilt).

The winner is the person with the most points .... SIMPLES !!!!!

In the event of a tie-break .... We will toss a pancake to determine the winner (thought that would be better than a coin as it's shrove Tuesday soon)

The racecards can be found at the following -

Good Luck Everyone .... Let The Battle Commence !!! thumbsup

Guys ... I have just added a line into the rules with ref to any of the selections being Non-Runners

Also ... Message for REEBOK RULES -

Can you edit your selections to show which ones are your Nap & Next Best. Hopefully you will see this before the start of racing but if not i'll put your first selction down as your Nap and your second down as your Next Best.

Cheers and Good Luck

Thanks for all the entries into todays Tipping Competition ... Below are the final standings -

1 ) enigma_that_is_HARCHIBALD 8.625 Pts
2 ) Grahame1971 2.2 Pts
3 ) Steve077 2.1 Pts
4 ) Solerina & Reebok Rules 0 Pts

A good days racing with some interesting contests, Enigma managed to Nap Mille Chief who just managed to hold off a battling Celestial Halo at Wincanton, which was good enough to secure top spot.

I hope you all enjoyed the challenge, hopefully we can drum up some more interest for next weeks competiton ... and obviously find a few more winners !!!!

Cheers All :friend:
