    Talking Horses Tjukurrpa Trophy

    Talking Horses Tjukurrpa Trophy





    Sponsored by edgt



    The prize for the winner, is a decorated and engraved hip flask along with a Club Enclosure ticket for one day at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival to enable a proper presentation of said trophy outside the Mandarin bar where Forum members gather each year.

    The idea is to have a head to head knock out tipping contest played on a Saturday that culminates in the two finalists playing off against each other on both Saturday 3rd and and Sunday 4th of February 2018 which is the new Leopardstown February Festival weekend (Irish Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup)


    RULES


    Before the first week of the competition proper (Round of 32) a full draw will be made and posted on the Tuesday. In the event there are more than 32 entries a preliminary round will take place on the previous Saturday between the appropriate number of players needed to ensure a field of 32 for the start of the competition proper.

    Each person drawn at home in the first round gets to choose the NH meeting of their choice (British or Irish) plus a back up meeting in the event the selected meeting is off, for their match on the Saturday (but must declare by midnight Thursday. I will not issue reminders. If the home player fails to post their preference for either I will nominate it on their behalf.

    If both meetings are abandoned on the day, players can mutually agree to either play another meeting on Saturday or defer it to the Sunday with the home player retaining right of choice.



    Each competitor chooses one selection per race (plus reserves if you wish) from the first six races. (Any further selections will be ignored and will not be deemed part of the tie, this is to ensure parity with potential opponents who may only have six races at their nominated meeting ) In each tie selections are to be posted by start of first race at the nominated meeting. No amendments or substitutions are allowed once the meeting has started. If a selection is a NR, no points are scored so it is in your interest to nominate reserves !

    If a player fails to post selections or posts selections for the wrong meeting, their opponent receives a walkover but their score will be taken into account when deciding home advantage in the next round. If both players fail to post selections, both players are eliminated from the competition.

    Scoring is as follows

    5 points awarded for a winner, 3 points for a second, and 1 point for a third.

    In the case of a tie, the result will be decided by most winners, if still level by most seconds, if still level then by thirds, then if still level, competitors must replay the following day with the away player having home advantage and choosing the meeting.



    From Round Two ( Round of Sixteen) onwards persons scoring the most points in the previous week get home advantage against their opponent on the following weekend weekend and choose the meeting which must be a NH meeting. If both winning players score the same number of points and the result cannot be decided by number of winners seconds and thirds, then I will nominate a meeting on their behalf.

    If for any reason competitors receive a bye, then in order to determine home advantage the following week, they must pick their selections at the same meeting as the tie producing the opponent they will be up against, this should maintain interest for all and maximise involvement.


    Any disputes the decision of the administrator of the competition for the week in play is final.


    The draw for the Preliminary Round on Saturday December 30th is as follows


    tiggers1972 v Slim Chance at Newbury

    Tanlic v Bonjers at Newbury (nominated by admin)

    fonz v An Capall at Haydock

    pearce 240 v Irish Stamp at Newbury (nominated by admin)

    Maxbet v Grey at Haydock

    The first named in each match to nominate a meeting and a reserve meeting by Midnight Thursday

    The scheduled NH meetings are Haydock, Newbury and Taunton

    The remaining 27 players receive a bye in to the competition proper which starts with a Round Of 32 on Saturday January 6th, the full draw for the competition will be made and posted on Tuesday January 2nd.

    The four players who didn't bother to turn up are eliminated which means tiggers1972 receives a walkover versus Slim Chance and Bonjers a walkover against Tanlic. Neither pearce240 or Irish Stamp posted selections in their match so both eliminated.

    Well done to fonz and Maxbet who move forward into the first round proper next Saturday along with tiggers1972 and Bonjers

    Final scores
