    The CW Horse Tipping Comp

    We have a few tipping games on the forum and I think with the number of racing fans we have (and let's face it, everyone loves a flutter on the Gigis ) we could do with a racing one. Rules to follow



    Anyone up for it?

    Yeah, in.

    But I'm not a huge fan of the time you've chosen to start it! I don't have a great relationship with NZ winter tracks. Might have to concentrate on Northern Hemisphere stuff.

    Perhaps a knockout comp or a one bet per week worth $5 might be better. In atm.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Perhaps Picking a meet and giving a week's notice.

    Then all punters bet for the races at that meet - $20 to play with each and bet however you want for that day.

    Meets chosen on a rotation basis (like the Draft threads etc)

    Prefer ripper's suggestion actually. Can then just use the starting odds?

    I'm up for Ripper's idea, but I think each player should pick their own meet, saves confusion with us being in different countries.

    Yeah, it's a bit of an ask for me and ripper to have any form of knowledge about the racing at Ffos Las (I only know of that venue thanks to work!) and, by the same token, I wouldn't expect CDM or marc to be on an even playing field when I force everyone to select their winners at the Wyndham harness meeting in Southland...

    I know it'll even out, but in the case of meetings on the other side of the world, we might as well be playing bingo (Ed excepted, as he seems to have a worldwide thoroughbred knowledge).

    The new rules:

    -Each week players are funded with 20 CW Dollars to bet on the racing. It's irrelevant whether it's flat, steeplechase, Handicap, class 1, class 5 or even Harness racing. They're all alowed.

    -The Nation and Course of the races are also irrelevant.

    -Players can then pick a number of horses in either single bets or multiples (yankees, trixies, lucky 15s etc) the total stake of all a player's bets must be at least the $20 they're funded with in the week. You can risk it all on 1 horse or you can spread your bets across different races and horses.

    - Both Win and Each way bets are at the tipster's choice.

    -Tippers can provide their own odds from one bookies or take the SP from the same bookies which they choose themselves (tote bets are also accepted) Again, there might be confusion with bookies from different countries so a link to their site would be very appreciated.

    -The results of each week's bets will be put into a league table on the Wednesday of each week (Weekends are of course, eventful days for racing) Where each player will be ranked on the number of their total profit/loss

    That ok with everyone? If it is then we've got six players, should be enough to start.

    While i get that there is a problem as far as knowledge of racing etc specific to location/genre i still think for the competition to work we need to be betting on the same meet - Makes it easy to work out who won what and makes the 'competition' more direct with other punters.

    Just as opposed to open slather is all. Makes everything easier to 'track'

    I'll track the stuff, no worries. Right, assuming everyone's still up for it, lets have a go:

    Round 1

    Current Balances

    ripper868- $20
    Voltman- $20
    marc71178- $20
    Mister Wright- $20
    _Ed_- $20
    CDM- $20
    Bobisback- $20

    Feel free to place as many bets you like as long as you don't exceed $20 between now and this time next week.

    Have to agree with Ripper really, one meeting a week.

    Im in either way. Though, would prefer it CDM's way, as wouldnt have a clue about English races, though would fancy myself a bit of a chance at winning this with the ability to bet on any Australian meeting.

    I really don't mind the extra work of checking results from different meets.If you want though I could link you the card to one meet a week as a guideline. I could do the same for ripper but like volty said, I can't really choose cards from places where I rarely follow the racing.

    Sure thing mate, I've edited the weeks list and put you in.

    Let's give this a chance for the moment. My bets to come soon, remember in the week each person must put a minimum $20 total on their bets. For instance:

    $4 dollar win
    $1 each way
    $2 win,
    0.20 lucky fifteen= $3
    $3 dollar win,
    $6 tote place

    Comes to a total of $20

    The number of bets doesn't matter.

    And please remember to choose a bookies to supply the odds.
