DDB ja606 top tipster competition

Ok Guys, Ive never done one of these before so go easy. I want to keep it as simple as possible so here goes.

1) Each poster must select 5 horses across any meetings on the day of the contest
2) A winning selection get 10 points, and 2nd place gets 8 points with 5 points for a 3rd (no points below third)
3) When points are added up there will a scoreboard updated daily. The daily winner will receive 10 points, 8 for second, 5 for third, 3 for fourth, and 1 for fifth.
4)There will be no weighting re:SP etc... however in the event of a draw, the poster with the highest finish with the largest price will be award the daily points.
5) Each poster may only choose 1 Favourite per daily selection (at time of selcetion).

These are the only rules i want to include, as i want to keep it as simple as possible. however all suggestions are welcome.

So for today I need 5 selections across the meetings at Fakenham, Folkstone and Southwell, all selections must be posted no later than 12.00pm

Good luck

How can you get points for a 3rd in a 4 runner race? lmao

Only a winner is a placing in 4 runner races and below. You don't half try it on

DDB If the bookies don't class it as placing then neither should you ie: a 3rd in a 7 runner race gets nothing and rightly so.

You'll end up with everyone picking the least runners in a race for points...ridiculous carry on.

Did you read the rules and points-scoring procedure to begin with ?

Maybe a visit to Specsavers is overdue for you ?

How on earth can a 3rd in a 4 runner race get points? Behave

A competition should only give points on the same placings as standard racing rules.

4 runners or less - the winner

5-7 first & second

8 and above 1st to 3rd


Otherwise we'll have everyone picking from 3 and 4 runner fields and god knows there's enough of them over the jumps. You don't half try and twist a loser into a winner

In your dreams,sunbeam and DDB will amend my points tally accordingly as per the original rules !

I finished second yesterday with 13 points and despite your usual selfish efforts to move the goalposts those are the FACTS of the matter !

DDB...can you please set the record straight to silence someone who is trying to amend your original rules ,uniltaterally ,and amend the points accumulated ?

Thank you !
