"Hit The Target" - $1,000 Comp Saturday 25 June

Recommended Posts

We’re giving Say No More (John) a break this week so I’m back on the tools.

With the information that John produces from his Excel spreadsheets he’s definitely in a different league to any scorer here but I’ll fill in this week with my basic stuff.

A few weeks back we ran a “Hit the Target” comp where the target was $300. We’re doing a similar comp this weekend but with different rules where you really get to call the shots.

The target is $1,000 but we’re not specifying any races, you get to pick from Tauranga or Riccarton Park in New Zealand and Randwick, Caulfield, Eagle Farm, Morphetville or Belmont WA in Australia (with a few rules around it).

THE RULES

- you must pick a minimum of 3 horses up to a maximum of 10 horses.

- you specify how much each-way you want on each of your selections.

- the minimum amount is $20ew , there is NO maximum EW amount but the Win and Place amounts must be identical. (Tote odds apply).

As previously, the winner won’t be the person who collects the biggest amount. The winner will be the person whose final total collected is CLOSEST to $1,000. (it doesn’t matter if you’re under or over the $1,000 total, you just have to be closest).

In the unlikely event that we have 2 or more people with identical differences to the $1,000, then the prize will be split.

Scooby has again put up a prize of $100, to be put on one horse Win, Place or Each Way with half the winnings going back into the future prize pool as normal.

- Competition picks close at 11.30am Saturday.

The last race to pick from for the day is at 6.40pm.   (we want to finish the comp at a reasonable time, we don’t anyone to be picking from Belmont WA Race 9 at 8.50pm!!!).

- If you have a scratching you can post a new selection and bet amount up until close-off time of 11.30am, but if you don’t that’s just back luck as you won’t be allocated any substitutes. Any Scratching after the 11.30am close off time is also just bad luck. Please post in a NEW post, do no just edit your original post.

Please post in this format:

Meeting     Race      Horse Name   EW Amount

(repeat,  please post the horse NAME as for this comp its easier for me and also easier for those to follow).

NB: Because there are so many races possible, results wont be posted after each and every race, they will in fact be published approx. every 30 minutes.

Another comp with a bit of a lottery factor to it… but gives everyone a chance to win it.

So put your thinking caps on and decide your strategy.

Good Luck.

Great concept Paul and welcome back!  Glad that your busy work life has given you the time to be able to run this one.  You led the way on scoring these things - that teams comp was epic - I'm still just the apprentice.

Way less lottery factor to this one than the bingo comp - actually requires a bit of tactical thinking.  Do i bet thinking all of my bets will come in or do I work on the basis that maybe one in three will come in??  (even that is probably a stretch the way I'm travelling).

A very well-deserved rest for John . . . an epic run of comps that were all highly entertaining. Thanks, John.
Don't sell yourself short Paul . . .I recall that your comps prior to John were all expertly run and equally entertaining. Thank you, too.
My tiny brain needs to get my thoughts together on this new comp ...  3.52am as I type this and I'm not switched on to the nuances.
Might watch what others do, before I venture forth. 🙂

Tauranga     2        Musigny Lass        50

                       5         Mont Ventoux       50

                       7         Ima Roca Bee        50

 

Riccarton      5         Chokito                  50

                        7         Final Savings        50

                        8         Yamuna                 50

 

Randwick       5        Nothimgsweetaboutme  50

Caulfield          1        She’s All Class      50

Thanks Paul and Scoobie

Tauranga  R1        Like A River    ew        $200

Tauranga  R1       Iffycould          ew        $200

Tauranga  R2      Turn The Ace   ew        $600

Interesting strategy Revel... Guess you're hoping Turn the Ace runs 2nd so you get $600 a place on it... Because if it wins for a $1.60/$1.10 divvy (for eg). for a total collect of $1,620 you might be goonneee.
