So if I win a listed chase or hurdle I get less points than for winning a handicap?

Additionally, would you not think of making something the the Paddy Power a bonus race? Surely anyone good enough to pick the winner of that this far in advance deserves a bonus.

Actually it is rather shocking that you have the Welsh national there and not the PP. I thought this was an Irish racing competition?

Fair point about switching the Welsh National for the PP on the 27th December!

I had 60 odd races to whittle down so was always likely to make at least one bad call!

Pity you didn't know reply on the other thread earlier though TI.

icc, I thinks its shocking that you consider something thats a bit of fun so seriously. Its easy to knock those that actually do something positive on this forum.

TBF an Irish hoss won the Welsh National last year so keeping it makes sense.

Down.Thanks for your efforts in trying to get this Comp going. Could I make a suggestion . We just run one Comp with your rules as outlined with the horses being picked from the Irish horses on the Racing Post list .Maybe 2 wild picks of horses not on that list . Entry fee 10 euro each and prizes for first three .

Is this comp still happening? Where do we post our lists and where do we send our entry fee?
By:
downallstar
When: 27 Oct 09 13:58
Yeah I still want to give it a go, be a bit of fun. If we're gonna throw in a 10er each there's probably no need for the rp one?

Anyone want to volunteer to look after the money?
