This competition has a serious fault with the Group races being essentially bonus races every week, the only way to win is to pick Group one runners paying $3 or less .... 

Why not just have group one races ...  

And the mercy ??? rule, should have come in, say halfway through the competition. To make one mistake in the first round and be eliminated the next week even after not picking a winner is pretty sad.

If the top three pick low divvie G1 non winners in the next couple of weeks, there won't be many people left !

 

But if the sponsor is happy then so be it.  :rcf-thinking-1:

 

The competition is designed to play with your mind, it’s all about risk and reward, and strategy.

Simple risk takers, losers, and garden variety fuckwits invariably fail at this game.....

I disagree with you, Archer.

The rules have been carefully set out.  I think it is a wonderful competition, and it will run until mid November, so there will be lots of interest.  And, if I am lucky enough to get a $500 bar voucher I would be pleased to extend an invitation to you.

The punishments seem to counter each other, making the two winner rule near obsolete.

Thanks for the offer but I doubt any one will be alive soon ...

Its been one of the longest surviving comps we have run here...its fun and the rules are the rules...lets all just keep it fun and keep the personalities out of it...cheers.

Yeah I have only played one similar competition but it was more straight forward, 1 joker (double up), and no bonus races.

But all good, not that fussed.  :)

WEEK 3 RESULTS

Well, Begood Toya Mother was a pivotal horse for many today - whether he won or lost, at least four people were going to be eliminated. He did the business knocking out four and costing another five their first life and 50 points, including the leader, Talk.

The numerous people who took Dream Force would have been nervous when he chimed in at the 300m, but Avilius rolled over the top to give the masses a reprieve.

We lost 13 more today thanks solely to Begoodtoyamother, Avilius and Melody Belle and 33 now remain. See you next week!

I was just about to ask you that. 

I'm inclined to say that Friday should be included but I don't think it's fair that people picking on Sunday have to post two days early with uncertain track conditions.
Perhaps a staggered cutoff this week and this week only?

Week 4

Day 1 update.

Nature Strip ($3) did the business in the Moir and it stung five tipsters. A further three collected off Sunlight's ($5.10) defeat while one of our top 5 got through thanks to Miss Siska ($4.60) in the Stocks Stakes.
A reminder Saturday's update won't be done until mid-morning Sunday.
Cheers

Week 4

Day 2 update.

Bivouac castles plenty!

11 entrants still to race today - 4 on Hartnell, 3 on Homesman, 1 on Gatting and still awaiting picks from Talk, We're Doomed and Archer. All three will be eliminated if they don't post, owing to Nature Strip winning on Friday night.

And then there were 26. Another 7 dipped out this weekend including three who dropped beyond 250 off the lead when Homesman couldn't get past the rank outsider Black Heart Bart.
We have a new leader, L.J Shannon, who is sitting pretty on 345.60 with both lives in hand. Remarkable recoveries from Talk and Kloppite, who have both lost a life, and 50 points, and still remain in the top 3.
See you next Saturday for a HUGE day's racing that includes the Livamol at Hastings, Turnball Stakes day at Flemington and the Epsom Handicap at Royal Randwick.

Thanks for the update Toblerone and thanks for running the comp - great job.

I think Talk's total is 30 points higher than what you're showing here.

Well spotted. Just a typo. Rest assured it was down as 330.43 on my master file.

I have to head out now, so the three on Birham Rocks in the last at Randwick are excluded for now. If Birham Rocks wins, CommonSensical and Turny Tom would be eliminated. 

We've lost another 4 today. MiDeBo Racing has Verry Elleegant's nose to thank for keeping them alive and three of you had a close call with Te Akau Shark.
Probabeel was today's biggest earner.
