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. We'll use 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 three 5 point bets to use during the competition.
One 5pt bet may be used during Irish Derby Weekend
One 5pt bet may be used during between Derby Weekend & Galway
One 5pt bet may be used during the Galway Festival
If somebody selects a 5 point bet, this horse may not be used as a 5 point bet by anyone else that day. It is not compulsory to use 5pt bets

6. Bets are on Irish horse racing only .

7 Returns will NOT include your stake

8. Not posting a tip will result in a score of -1 and late entrants will score -1 for each day missed.

8. Entrants will be accepted up to next Saturday 2nd July.

9. Competition Starts Friday 24th of June and ends on the last day of Galway

10.All are welcome to enter.

Please note ive taken out the holiday option as its only a short competition and in this day and age there are few places on the planet where the internet cant be accessed.

Well done MP for both your sterling efforts on the organisation and on the win . Well deserved. Well done Tradefair-were did the inspiration come from for that one today. Looking at the final table its clear the bookies wont get rich off some of us. Roll on the next one.


Going into Galway I knew at the start of the week I needed a big price winner to have any chance of winning. I said in a post during the week that I would like to finish in profit but it would not be playing the game not to try to win. My picks in Galway were all what i thought were lively outsiders. The closet I got was Celtic Dane who ran well above his odds of 25/1 to finish 5th.

Yesterday, I started with the first race and noticed the 100/1 had been taken with a few firms. A beginners chase with a horse priced on it's connections and a bit of money for it - sounds good. Chances were it was going to be a trier at the very least. It was similar to the big priced horse I found two weeks ago when Jimmy Coogan's Slim Chance (2yo filly) was a market mover in the morning but obliged at 10/1. Purely priced up on connections. I bet connections filled their boots in that race too.

To sum up it was just top class guessing on my part Laugh
