Hm, bit sad to be leaving the old thread, but we have to move on. However, let us not forget the guy who started this great idea - flem - and, for anyone who wants to go back over the old stuff, this is the link:

ROLL UP, ROLL UP!!!!!!

NEW COMPETITION STARTS TODAY

ALL WELCOME!


Yes, even if you haven't layed in your life, now's the time to start!


Rules:

- Each day of the competition is a fence to be jumped by picking a single successful lay - If the lay selection wins its race you will be deemed a faller and eliminated

- All lays must be 7.0 or below on Betfair at the time of posting (this WILL be checked)

- Win lays only, no place lays

- GB and IRE meetings only

- Duplicate selections are allowed until only four or fewer runners are left in the race.  At that point anyone who repeats a previous selection and fails to change it before the end of racing will be deemed a refusal

- Any runner who fails to post on any day will be eliminated as a refusal. The same applies to anyone who fails to replace a non-runner before the day's racing is finished. No exceptions

- Lays must be posted by OFFICIAL off time of the race concerned

- The competition will end when only one runner is left in the race, who will be awarded the 'gold medal'. Those coming second and third will be awarded silver and bronze medals

-  In the event of all remaining competitors falling at the same fence it will be declared a dead heat

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!!

This could be an interesting system. Lay horses whose odds are the same as the start time of the race.

6.25 Pontefract twilight pearl  4.6

To be fair to the horse 5f was never going to be the right trip for this one on breeding, so over 6f i would expect some improvement. However i doubt this will be the day she loses her maiden tag.
Firstly on breeding im sure she will be seen to better effect on fast ground which i think is unlikely tonight given the weather forecast.
Having watched a replay of her last race, which was a pretty mediocre maiden at Hamilton, she never really travelled at all and tonight she is drawn out wide and that would be a major concern for me as she will have to burn up quite a bit of energy early on just to get a decent position.

best of luck to all taking part

Mad

I used to run a lay comp at work called A Donkey a day, the winner had a strike rate of 7/166 all under 10`s on here, many around the 3/4/5`s mark. He was very good.

Hi Reged great thread mate.

You are a glutton for punishment sir.Laugh

I'm not a layer but I love a good competition so I'll certainly have a bash.

Some great people on the last thread so I'm off to study as I don't want to embarrass myself.Grin

Make sure you all back whatever I put up lads.

If I didn't know u better Monte I'd say you were a bookie trying to suck us all in! There's a lot of it about! Laugh

Hello zigs old chap! How nice to see you. But I thought us childish folk were beneath your serious gambling contempt? Not to worry, as I say, ALL are welcome (well ALMOST all. LittleSL is off the Xmas card list at the mo)!
