    2018 Cheltenham Festival Tipping Competition

    Circumstances dictate I will be unable to attend this year's Festival and will be restricted to watching from home so am happy to run a tipping competition, nothing too complicated enter when you like from here on in.


    Rules

    One selection each day in each race at Cheltenham from Tuesday to Friday, with one selection each day noted as a nap. Selections each day must be in by the start of the first race (1.30PM) and no alterations are permitted thereafter including the addition or changing of naps. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Please check here for non runners before placing your selections

    http://horses.sportinglife.com/Non_Runners/.

    A virtual 20 win bet will be placed on your nap each day with a virtual 10 win bet on your other selections. In the event naps are not nominated selections will all be settled on a 10 win basis.

    Stake money will not be included in any returns, losing selections result in losing the virtual stake. Reserves are permitted, but whatever your eventual selection is, if it is a non runner, the virtual stake is placed on the favourite for that race, however joint or co favourites will be settled accordingly. For the purpose of this competition any Rule 4 deductions will be ignored.

    The winning player will be the one achieving the highest profit or smallest loss over the four days. Individuals must play on all four days and make selections in all races to qualify as the winner.

    Any disputes my decision is final.

    In the event the forum is down, selections may be left on our Facebook page, or I have set up an e-mail address TheDiamondGeezer@virginmedia.com

    Pluralism of Ideas and the prosperity of any land are intertwined. Freedom of minds and skill of intellect to 'think the unthinkable' is how humanity has progressed; when minds are incarcerated nothing endures.
