Well March is closing in fast and the Cheltenham Horse-Racing Festival, with it too. Let's hope the Racing authorities have brought the recent outbreak of Equine Flu, under control by then. The Festival runs from Tuesday 12th March - Friday 15th March. I plan to "host" another Tipping Competition on very similar lines, to the other Horse-Racing Competitions I've "hosted" on the Sports Zone, with a few other Categories. The basic Format will be the same. It's simple to enter. Just select one horse, in each of the 7 races, on each day, Tues 13th March to Fri 16th March ( Inc,) A few simple rules below: 1. You will be placed a "virtual" £1 each way, on each selection, at the horses, returned starting price. Your stakes will be returned, in your "virtual" winnings. E.g A 10/1 winner will give you a profit of £14.50, £11 for the win and £3.50, for the place part. A 20/1 winner, will give you a "virtual" win of £27, £21 for the win and £6, for the place part. A 16/1, placed horse, will give you £5, etc, etc. 2. Losing stakes will NOT be deducted, from your total. Your "virtual" profit, will accumulate, throughout the week. 3. Place terms will be as follows: 4 or less runners (All up to win), never known such a small field to occur, at the Festival. 5,6,7 runners 1/4 the odds, 1st and 2nd. Races with 8 or more runners, 1/4 the odds 1st,2nd,3rd. Handicaps of 16 to 21 runners, 1/4 odds 1st,2nd,3rd,4th. Handicaps of 22 or more runners, 5th place will also be paid. I will post up notice of the exact place terms I'll be using, on the morning of each Race Day. 4. Any dead-heat occurring, will NOT, result in your stakes, being split!! ( Can't remember the last dead-heat, at the Cheltenham Festival.) 5. Rule 4 deductions of less than 15p in the £, will NOT be enforced. 6. You must post up your selections by 1 pm, on a daily basis. You DON'T have to give all your selections, for the whole meeting, by 1 pm on Tues. 12th. 7. You will be asked to nominate a daily "NAP". Please indicate your NAP as follows: **BUVEUR D'AIR**(NAP). Your winning "NAP", will have it's SP or TOTE ODDS enhanced by 1 pt. E.G,S.P. Evens, will become 2/1, 6/4 >10/4 (5/2), 9/4 > 13/4, 5/2 > 7/2, 11/4 > 15/4 and so on. TOTE ODDS. £1.70, will become £2.70, £2.20 > £3.20, £3.20 > £4.20, £4.20 > £5.20, etc,etc. 8. You must indicate, on a daily basis, whether you want your selections to be settled at S.P or TOTE ODDS? Failure to do so will result in your selections being settled (calculated), at S.P. 9. You will be given the choice of,1, Morning Price.2. Starting Price. I will apply the Best Odds Guaranteed system and you will receive whichever of those 2 options, offers the best price about your selection. If you can "settle" ( calculate ), your own selections bets, that would be a big help. But I will be keeping my own record of your selections and will post up the current standings, at the end of each days racing. Obviously, there will not be any prize money, if you win, you'll have the honour of being Net Weather Cheltenham Tipping Champion!! Surely, that's enough. Obviously, your entry will cost you nothing, either. Just a bit of form studying time!! I will post up the link to the Racing Post website, around late morning, the day before each Race Day. Really do hope I manage to generate, a bit of interest!! Please indicate on this thread, if you intend to enter. Thank you. In a short while, I will post up details of a couple of extra Categories, to "whet the appetite". Regards, Tom.
