I wrote to Hilliam Will yesterday regarding the The Jumps, this is what I wrote...

I am making a candid request for some information regarding the The Jumps competition this year. As you may be well aware, the Tote Tentofollow is no longer part of that organisations plans this year and its demise is a very good opportunity for you to capitalise on it and corner that sector of the market.

I would be interested in knowing if you are going to improve the website, change the format, prize money, stakes, etc etc, as there was a lot of criticism in those areas.
Having been a player of the Tentofollow from its onset and like many others who are sad to see it go, we will be looking towards your competition to fill its boots.

With regards to this years competition that starts next month. I have spoken to the person responsible and he is sending me full details early next week, when I have the relative information I will let you know the Schedule as there are changes we feel will improve on last years competition.

So watch this space....

They have not got back to me with the new changes as yet.
For those of you that are thinking of spending vast amounts on multi entry perms, just remember the caveat; you can win any part whole or monthly of this competition and not win a penny...

If you finish level on points then they draw out the hat for prize money.

That was last season, but I'd hope not this season, as that's appalling.

Got a message that:

The Jumps coupons will be available by Friday the 14th of November.

Have asked whether any major changes to last year.

Their reply was 'not that we know of', which probably means whoever answered is probably not close to the organisers of the comp, and so probably isn't in the know.

Leaving it a bit late, and not promoting it that well. Maybe missing a major opportunity here.

When I emailed them to ask about it, they'd never heard of it.  Although I didn't know the name of the comp.

There must be people in these organisations getting money for doing FA. You would think that some bright spark would be aware that the Tote has pulled out of the TTF and say "We can get a bit of season long publicity by running a good competition with top prizes."

I would hate to be employing these people!

The payout and structure are much the same as last year with one major difference...NO STABLE STAR.
You also get two tickets with free access to a racecourse of your choice.

Think the 'no stable star' change is a good one. Any idea how many horses in the pool?

I went into a Hills shop on Friday. The cashier hadn't a clue when the entry forms would be in the shop. Sums the whole thing up!

I went into the shop and charmed the girl into giving me access to their advertising package, they have a large photo of a shop assistant holding a coupon, I simply took a photo of it. The early bird catches the worm.

his competitio will have more entries than the T0te TTF did even at its peak. Last Thursday each shop sent one member of staff to a seminar, they are going to drive this like their lives depend on it. Prizes for best performing shops, nationally and area. You are looking at upward of 200,000 entries.

With nearly 2,500 shops in the UK, if Hills sell just 100 coupons per shop (many will far outdo that) then they will have 250,000 entrants. So for those of you thinking of putting in massive perms; for every hundred coupons you enter you are only about evens to beat the rest of the shop you place them on in, let alone the other 25,000/1 pro-rata per £100 other shops. The leader board of the TTF had numerous duplicated copies appear, indeed I saw many when I followed the leaders of this competitin last year, also after the guy who initially won both prizes stating he placed the same entries twice means I can state with almost certainty that there will be many identical entries, Which leads me to the ruling of drawn coupons will be decided by the tombola drum, nnot ideal, hmmmm.

I took 50 JOCI, might have to get another 50.

Looks like a decent competition for 2 quid.
