I'm in but I thought last years comp was over too long a period and as a result lots of subs needed to be used. NH racing has a high casulalty rate and lots can happen to horses between November and May. Maybe shorten the period- say from Jan 1st to end of Punchestown. Just a suggestion,  interested in what others think.

Report ChildOfMine2 November 2, 2011 12:22 AM GMT
If we get the numbers, I'll take on the responsibility of taking the reigns of this year's competition. I vote we start on PP Gold Cup day (the start of the Racing Post's TTF comp) and we continue until the last day of the Punchestown festival. We'll have three transfer periods and it will basically be the same rules as before. You can chop and change your list until 12pm Saturday November 12.

Rules

1. Up to three stables per person.
2. Each stable to consist of 10 Irish-trained horses.
3. Competition to start... Saturday 12th November 2011
4. Closing date for entries... 12pm Saturday 12th November 2011
5. Competition to end ... last day of 2012 Punchestown festival (Saturday April 28th).
6. Entry fee is €10 per list.
Please email me on biffo69@hotmail.com. We'll need at least 15 entries to make the competition worthwhile or else it's not really worth running. I advise nobody to send their entry fee until we have at least 15 entrants confirmed so I'll set the payment deadline to the last day of the month - 30th November.

7. i. A person can change their selection as many times as they want up to the start date of the competition. last selection before this date, or first after will then be taken as final.
ii. Please email lists of horses to biffo69@hotmail.com
iii. Entrant's stables will be posted on the Betfair thread after 12pm on Saturday 12th November.

8. Transfer periods are as follows:
i. Christmas transfer period 20th - 26th December 2011, closing at 12pm on the 26th December. Two transfers.

Not much feedback so far so not sure if this is a goer - Need to know who is interested but not looking good so far Sad
Report Byerley_Racing November 3, 2011 5:05 PM GMT
you can now administer mini leagues through the TTF website. That would take care of the scoring and updating part of this.

Somebody just needs to grab the bull by the horns and manage it.
