1. Each competitor has 2 points to use every day there is an Irish racing meeting. The bet is either 2pts win or 1 pt e/w. If not specified the bet will be assumed to be 2pts win, whatever the price.
2. Competitors will be allowed to take a price on weekend racing/races priced up overnight, otherwise we’ll settle at SP.
3. No lays, place only, betfair prices, doubles, trebles etc.
4. If there are two or more Irish meetings on that day there is still only one bet.
5. Each competitor has two 5 point bets to use during the competition. One bet to be used by end of Sunday 27th June (Irish Derby Day) and the other to be used from Monday 28th June until end of the comp (August 1st). If somebody selects a 5 point bet, this horse may not be used as a 5 point bet by anyone else that day.
6. Bets are on Irish horse racing only.
7.Competitors may nominate in advance a "competition holiday" which must be taken in chunks of not less than a week .
8. Not posting unless stated on holiday for the week or fortnight will be the equivalent of a -1.
9. Returns will NOT include your stake.
10. Entrants will be accepted up to a week from Saturday.
11. Entrants should be prepared to keep own score.
12. Starts Saturday 22nd May (Irish 2000 Guineas Day) & ends on Sunday August 1st (final day of Galway Festival).
13. All welcome to enter.


*Moneypenny has kindly offered to do the settling*


In recent comps the SP/take a price issue has been troublesome - I hope what I have suggested in rule 2 is a fair compromise. Please let me know what you think about it (& the grey area which is whether to allow prices to be taken on 'twilight' meetings) so we can make a final decision before the comp starts Happy

I look forward to it Sindarr! I saw you by the way going up in the stand with the old man for the big race. BUT as you were at the furlong marker you had a close up of the action as it was all unfolding.
That was the only time I saw you. But then I only got down as they were going into the stalls for the 4th race.

I will be in Gowran and Tramore the next day. A group of us are staying over in Kilkenny to take in the two days and the hospitality that kilkenny offers!

No problem, Sinn Happy

Up to you who you donate the prize to - maybe one of the re-training/re-homing of racehorses charities?

Tbf, if you mention the comp from the start bf usually come up with something. As I said, on this occasion it slipped my mind (not a fan of the 'new' forum, tbh) & forgot about this after I stopped making selections in the comp

Flat season's been a bit hit & miss (apart from Royal Ascot) - World Cup was good tho' & French racing helping me to keep ticking over. How you faring yourself? If you've been backing your selections, you can't be doing bad
