    Annual Champions Day challenge v TRF racing Forum Sat Oct 17

    Nathan from TRF has been in touch to ask if we wish to continue, please post if you wish to take part and we will have a look at what interest there is by next weekend and whether it is viable to take part again, Champions Day is the weekend after.

    These are the rules we have used previously.

    Rules

    Entries can be made on either the Talking Horses Forum or The Racing Forum regardless of which team the player represents. Each team will consist of 16 players including one captain.

    A draw is made on the Wednesday prior to the meeting whereby players are paired together and compete with each other by nominating one selection in each of the six races at Ascotís Champions Day meeting with one selection noted as a nap. The first player to be drawn out on each side will be the captain for this yearís contest.
    A virtual £2 win bet will be placed on the nap with a virtual £1 win bet on your other selections. In the event a nap is not nominated, all selections will be settled on a £1 win basis. Stake money will not be included in any returns but losing selections result in losing the virtual stake. For the purpose of this competition any Rule 4 deductions will be ignored.
    Selections (one reserve for each race allowed) must be in by 1.15PM and no submissions or alterations are permitted thereafter, no exceptions ! In the event a selection is a NR, the reserve selection will apply, if the reserve is also a NR OR if no reserve is nominated the selection will revert to the favourite for the race in question. If there are joint or co-favourites the horse with the highest race card number will be deemed to be the selection.
    In each match the winning player scores 3 points, a tie will be scored as 1 point each and the winning forum will be the one who scores most points. If the result is a tie the accumulated profit (or loss) of all the players in their respective team will be the deciding factor.
    If a team member fails to post selections, the captainís selections are used again on behalf of that player. If the captain fails to post selections on the day, the captainís and all absent players score will be calculated as a losing selection on each race including one nap.
    Any disputes the decision of Nathan and Diamond Geezer is final.

    He didn't put his name forward, from memory I don't think he's played other years either.
