    TH Ten To Follow Competition 2017 / 2018



    The TTF competition this season runs from Wednesday November 1st 2017 to Saturday April 28th 2018 inclusive and this year is generously sponsored once again by swedish chef to the tune of £100 for the winner. The prize of £50 to the player with the highest scoring Dark Horse will this season be sponsored by Roddy Owen.



    The rules and conditions for the Ten To Follow competition are as follows:



    Each forum member may select A MAXIMUM OF THREE TEAMS.



    For each team select NINE horses from the list of 200 horses below and add ONE Dark Horse i.e one horse of your own choice which is not on the list, TEN IN TOTAL. and add the name of the trainer FOR THE DARK HORSE ONLY. In the event a team is submitted which contains more than nine list horses, only the first nine horses will count.Each team shall have a different Dark Horse.



    In each team no more than three horses, including the Dark Horse, shall be from the same stable. Any team subsequently found to have breached that rule once the competition starts will be disqualified.



    Teams must be submitted in alphabetical order with the Dark Horse as Horse Number 10 and followed by the name of its trainer. (If I can put 200 horses in alphabetical order, you can manage ten !). Entries which have been "thanked" indicate the entry has been accepted. Note teams not in alphabetical order will not be accepted.



    Please mark you teams as Team A, Team B and Team C



    Closing date for entries is 12PM on Wednesday November 1st 2017. In the event the Forum is down, entries can be posted on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/talkinghorses.co.uk/ or alternatively email mrdiamondgeezer@outlook.com



    Any disputes during the TTF competition the decision of Grey and myself will be final.



    *** Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the list of 200 horses includes horses who will be running at some point during this season, this cannot be absolutely guaranteed. ***



    Good luck everyone


    Scoring

    Points are awarded for National Hunt races in the UK and Ireland only and scoring is as follows, UK prize money in £ or Irish prize money in € as published in the RP.



    In a race worth 100,000 or more to the winner, the winner scores 50 points.
    In a race worth between 75,000 and 99,999 to the winner, the winner scores 40 points.
    In a race worth between 50,000 and 74,999 to the winner, the winner scores 30 points.
    In a race worth between 30,000 and 49,999 to the winner, the winner scores 25 points.
    In a race worth between 25,000 and 29,999 to the winner, the winner scores 20 points.
    In a race worth between 15,000 and 24.999 to the winner, the winner scores 15 points.
    In a race worth between 10,000 and 14,999 to the winner, the winner scores 10 points.
    In a race worth up to 9,999 to the winner, the winner scores 5 points.
    In the event of a dead heat full points are still awarded but should any race be a walk over, no points are scored.

    10 additional points will be awarded to the winner of any race at the Cheltenham Festival, plus the Aintree Grand National.
    A further 15 points will be awarded to the winner of the Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, World Hurdle, Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Aintree Grand National. (i.e 75 points in total, 50+10+15)

    Ten points will also be awarded to any horse finishing second at the Cheltenham Festival and five points to any horse finishing third.




    BONUS POINTS
    Bonus points according to the official Tote Win Dividend in £ or € as printed in the RP for both Britain and Ireland, will also be awarded as follows. If no Tote Win Dividend is declared, the SP will determine any bonus points. Should neither a Tote Win Dividend nor a SP be returned, bonus points will not apply.



    4 to 6...................4 points
    Over 6 to 10........6 points
    Over 10 to 14....10 points
    Over 14 to 20....15 points
    Over 20 to 33....20 points
    Over 33...............40 points
    Dark Horses will score DOUBLE bonus points.



    The official result on the day will be used for the calculation of points with any subsequent disqualification disregarded
    Points updates will be posted on Sunday evenings as of Sunday November 19th 2017 and each evening during the Cheltenham Festival as well as other occasions where there is a significant change to the leader board towards the end of the competition. These may of convenience feature the top entries only.



    In the event of a tie at the close of the competition, the player whose Dark Horse in that particular team has accumulated the most points shall be declared the winner. If there is still a tie, prize monies for the TTF will be divided equally amongst the players concerned.



    No substitutions will be allowed for the duration of this competition, although amendments may be made to your ten to follow teams prior to the start of the competition by making a new posting up to the closing date and time.



    The TTF will also count towards the Winter Competition, devised and sponsored by Grey, for which there is a prize of £100 to the player with the best combined performance in this and the Ante Post competition.



    The Ante Post competition itself will be on a separate thread. Even if you do not intend to enter the Ante Post competition, this does not preclude you entering this one, all are welcome.

    Not really, PJ. 90% of them self-select, so it's not anything like hard work pulling the list together (though C&H has obviously helped focus the mind).

    Cracking Smart is one I'm really looking forward to this season. Have taken some fancy prices about the Supreme and the Ballymore - if everything works out, he will run wherever Samcro doesn't.

    Checking my entries I found that team B has four from Mullins so if I swap Team B dark horse with team C, I should be within the rules.

    I think you're all mental making these entries now. One of my potential dark horses is entered up on Saturday and I aint putting my list up until I see how he runs.
