Would like to "host" another Tipping Competition, on the upcoming York Ebor Festival, begins Weds. 22nd Aug. through to Sat. 25th Aug. It features the Group 1, Juddmonte International and one of the big betting handicaps of the season, the Ebor Handicap, plus many other Group races. Entries for the Juddmonte include the likes of: POET'S WORD, ROARING LION, CRACKSMAN and SAXON WARRIOR. On Fri. 25th, brilliant Goodwood winner, BATTAASH is entered in the Group 1, Nunthorpe Stakes. He's hoping to cement his position as Champion Sprinter, of the season. Format and Rules, will be exactly the same as the Goodwood Competition: 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 5 days. 3. Place terms will be as follows: 4 or less runners (All up to win), 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. There will also be extended place terms, on larger fields. 4. Any dead-heat occurring, will NOT, result in your stakes, being split!! 5. Rule 4 deductions of less than 15p in the £, will NOT be enforced. 6. You must post up your selections by 1.30 pm, on a daily basis. You DON'T have to give all your selections, for the whole meeting, by 1.30 pm on Tues 31st July. 7. You will be asked to nominate a daily "NAP", on each of the 5 days. Please indicate your NAP as follows: **ULYSSES**. Your winning "NAP", will have it's SP enhanced by 1 pt. E.G, 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.Trial ( The Curragh) I will also throw in another couple of races: The Celebration Mile (Goodwood) and the Irish St.Leger Trial (The Curragh). Boyh take place on Sat.25th August. To whet the appetite, I'd like to leave you with a couple of memories, from previous York Festivals. Firstly, Sir Michael Stoutes' ULYSSES, winning the 2017, Juddmonte International: Finally, the brilliant FRANKEL, winning the 2012 edition, of the same race, IMO, the brilliant Frankel's finest performance. Sir Henry Cecil stepping the colt up to an extended mile and a quarter, for the first time. FRANKEL, slaughtered a high class field, in emphatic fashion. You wonder I Cecil had let him take his chance in the DERBY, whether he would have added that "classic" win to the, 2,000 GUINEAS and his other Group 1, victories?? Enjoy!! Could you please let me know if you want to enter, by posting your intention on this thread. Regards, Tom.
