If you want to join the comp just start posting selections on the DIVISION 3 THREAD.

Our rules:

1 - You have to choose 1 horse each day. Winners will be returned at SP/Industry Prices and stake is 1 point. If no SP/Industry Price is returned winning selections will be settled as non-runners.     
2 - Only UK and Irish races featured on the Racing Post daily cards page are eligible.
3 - Selections must be posted AT LEAST 1 hour before the scheduled start time of your selected race. Failure to comply will result in the selection being declared Invalid and treated as a Non Selection. See rule 8.    
4 - Selections may be changed as long as it is at least 1hr prior to the scheduled start time of your original race OR if the selection is a NR or deemed invalid ( Rule 3 MUST still be adhered to).    
5 - Rule 4 and Dead Heat rules will apply to SP/Industry Prices.    
6 - Sunday selections will be optional unless it is the last day of the month. On optional Sundays there will be no deductions for non-posters and Rule 8 will not apply.    
7 - LAST DAY RULES for the last day of the month : all selections must be made BY THE SCHEDULED OFF TIME OF THE FIRST RACE of the day, you can't choose a horse already selected by another competitor in the same division, and only named horses are allowed.    Detailed rules are posted on the last day of the month.
8 - On any day that a competitor does not post (excluding Sundays and final days) they will automatically revert to a possible maximum of 5 rest days per calendar month, which will be settled as a non-runner. However, once the total of non-posting days for a month reaches 5, further days when no selections are made in that month will be classed as a loser. You have the option of other napsters to post on your behalf for as long as required if you wish.    
9 - Reserve selections will only be allowed to cover the possibility of a meeting being abandoned.    
10 - In the event of a tie the person who has used least rest days will be deemed to finish above the person they have tied with.    
11 - In the event of a major Betfair upgrade which may affect the ability to post on the Forum before racing starts that day will have Sunday rules applied (ie. no deduction for non-posters).    
12 - Quite often, things can crop up that aren`t strictly covered by the above rules (grey areas) in these instances please abide by the individual settler`s decision/ruling.

Like the other settlers I use a spreadsheet to scrape the selections from the forum and match them up with the results.  If the selections are written in the format Nijinsky - 4.30 Plumpton (they don't need to be in bold!) then they will automatically be matched with the results without me having to do anything. Which is a very good thing. But if they are written in your own idiosyncratic format such as 430 P Nijinski, then they often don't get matched up and I have to manually do the matching. Which is a bad thing. Because the more trouble the process is for us settlers then the less likely we'll want to continue doing it. 95% of people get it right and I thank you all for that.
