    Talking Horses Summer Tipping Competition 2018

    The competition will run for 26 weeks, for the purposes of this competition a week runs from a Sunday to a Saturday, and is based on racing in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Players may join the competition at any stage and there is no penalty for missing any weeks other than losing an opportunity to score points.


    Week 1 starts on Sunday April 22nd and Week 26 starts on Sunday October 14th. During the competition there will be plenty of opportunities to place virtual wagers on meetings such as the Guineas meeting, Chester’s May Festival, York’s Dante meeting, the Oaks and The Derby, Royal Ascot, the Summer National, the Galway Festival, Glorious Goodwood, the Ebor meeting at York, Ayr’s Gold Cup meeting and many more big meetings involving both codes.


    Players select three horses between a Sunday and a Friday, either the same day or on separate days, and three horses on a Saturday, six horses a week in total. Each selection carries a 10 Tote win bet and selections can be placed up to the off time of the race(s) in question. Players may select more than one horse in the same race if they wish.


    Unused Sunday or weekday selections cannot be carried forward to the Saturday nor unused selections of either type to the following week. During any one week, once a selection has been posted, anymore unused selections will be treated as losing ones and players joining the competition on a Saturday will be assumed as having had three losing bets during that week.


    In the event a selection for a race is a NR, the selection, if not changed, will be treated as a wager on the favourite in that race. If there is more than one favourite the one with the lowest race card number will be the selection.


    Wagers will be settled using the Tote win dividend as published in the Racing Post.


    At the end of each week:
    The player with the highest accumulated funds for the week will be awarded 40 points
    The player with the second highest will be awarded 20 points
    The player with the third highest will be awarded 10 points
    The player with the fourth profit will be awarded 5 points


    In the event there is/are a tie(s) for any position, points for that position and the one(s) below will be divided equally eg two winners would receive 40 for first + 20 for second =60 points between them, 30 points each and points below distributed accordingly, so only the second and third highest would score points, 10 points and 5 points respectively.


    The player with the highest total of points after racing on Saturday 20th October will be deemed the winner of the competition and win the free 50 bet on a Cheltenham Festival fancy of your choice generously donated for this competition by Euronymous. In the event of a tie, the player with the highest accumulated funds over the 26 weeks will be deemed the winner.


    Any disputes my decision is final (cos I know what I meant)


    In the event the forum is down, selections may be left on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/talkinghorses.co.uk/?fref=ts can I recommend you bookmark it just in case or via email to mrdiamondgeezer@virginmedia.com



    *** Just for information, the final day of competition is the Ascot Champion’s Day meeting. On the same day the annual inter forum Champions Day challenge between TH and TRF takes place. We are 2-0 down ! ***

    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.
