One Day Knockout/Survival comp - entry thread - Sat 16 April

Recommended Posts

Ok something a little bit different for a one day comp this week - a knockout/survival of the fittest type comp. 

Please read the "Free Pass" rule below very carefully

How it works - pick two horses in each of the 12 designated races.  The primary objective is to make it to the next race - you need at least one of your two picks to finish in the first 4 to progress to the next race.  Your secondary objective is to accumulate dividends - you will have $10 on each of your selections.

Winner - the winner is the entrant who makes it through all 12 races (with at least one runner in first 4) and accumulates the most dividends.  Or if nobody survives all 12 races, the last person to be knocked out.  If more than one entrant are the last to be knocked out, the winner will be the one of those entrants with the most dollars accumulated at the time they were knocked out.  For example if there are only three people still alive going into the 10th race, and they are all knocked out in the 10th race, the one of those three with the highest dollars after race 9 is the winner (in this example the race 11 & 12 results will count for nothing).

Free Pass - you will have two Free Passes at your disposal across the 12 races.  You don't have to use either or both of your free passes, ie. you can use none, one or two free passes.  You would use a Free Pass if there was a race you didn't fancy your chances of surviving (picking one in the top 4).  The downside to the Free Pass is that you forego the opportunity to accumulate dividends in that race - again a bit of a risk/reward thing.  However given the primary objective is to survive all 12 races I'd be inclined to use mine.

If you use your Free Pass in a race just mark it as for example "FP" - you don't need to post selections for your Free Pass races.  If anyone posts numbers and FP in a race the Free Pass will prevail.

An example of how you might submit your entry:

Te Rapa R4:  1/3
Randwick R3:  2/7 
Randwick R4:  FP
Hastings R6:  4/5   
Te Rapa R7:  FP
..........  

Prize - Scooby has kindly put up a $20 bet (win and/or place) to the winner.  

Posting deadline is 1.40pm - 16 minutes before first race.

Races are as follows - please note this week the races are listed in chronological order, as the order matters in a race to race survival comp.  Please post your picks in this race order.

Te Rapa R4  
Randwick R3  
Randwick R4  
Hastings R6   
Te Rapa R7  
Randwick R5  
Hastings R7  
Riverton R8  
Randwick R6 
Randwick R7
Randwick R8
Caulfield R8

A few more rules:

Scratchings - same as usual - if a runner is scratched you default to the sub and then second favourite.

Abandoned races - If any races are abandoned the comp will be run over the races that are run.  If you have used a free pass in an abandoned race you can switch it to another race prior to the posting deadline (in a new post), otherwise it's just the rub of the green.

Race order - in the unlikely event that races are delayed and they don't run in the order listed above, the comp will be scored as if they ran in the listed order.

Dead heats - if your best placed runner dead heats for 4th you survive that race.

I hadn't looked at the fields at Randwick when I chose the races - I just picked the Group races.

I see now that Randwick Race 4 (the Champagne Stakes) is a six horse field with two (maybe three) clear standouts - I don't think anyone will be wasting a Free Pass on this race.

Thanks John & Scooby - great comp.  Probably foolish keeping my second FP until the final race - like getting voted off Survivor with an idol in your pocket.
