One Day KO/Survival comp - entry thread - Sat 28 May

Recommended Posts

We tried this one 6 weeks ago and got off to a bit of a rocky start (60% of the field eliminated in the first race) but it worked out ok in the end - if you were among the 40%.  Might cause a few to rethink their Free Pass strategy.  Have tried to make it a slightly easier task in race 1 this week - 8 horse field.

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 each way 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).  Use your Free Pass and you automatically proceed to the next race.  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.  

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:

Pukekohe R2:  1/3
Pukekohe R4:  2/7 
Pukekohe R5:  FP
Pukekohe R6:  4/5   
Pukekohe R7:  FP
..........  

Prize - Scooby has kindly put up a $100 bet (win and/or place) to the winner - usual 50:50 split of any winnings.

Posting deadline is 11.30am - 10 minutes before first race  (note very early this week)

Races are as follows - please note 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.

Pukekohe R2
Pukekohe R4
Pukekohe R5
Pukekohe R6 
Pukekohe R7
Eagle Farm R4
Caulfield R4
Eagle Farm R6
Eagle Farm R7
Eagle Farm R8
Eagle Farm R9
Eagle Farm R10

and a few more detailed rules:

Scratchings - same as usual - if a runner is scratched you can post replacement picks up until posting deadline, otherwise 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.
