It's week 3 of this month's tip competition. We had three points scorers. Marc Shukman heads the leaderboard with 13.75pts. He found a nice 9/2 winner to add to a few points he snaffled away on the first Saturday of the month. Longbow backed a fractional odds-on and holds second place with 9.318pts. Dan The Man (who has been in great form winning the last two months) found a nice winner backing Paul Nicholl's charge and sits in third place with 7pts. The only other scorer is HCE with 2.3pts. It's still an open contest where a decent winner could make a few tipsters wince. Is that tipster you, me or them? Another early start with an 11:30 am Deadline. Good luck to all who take part.

The second week of our illustrious tipping competition. Not too much damage done last week with just three scorers. Longbow had a nice winner that was backed to half its odds so had to settle for 5.5pts. Shukman managed a place effort and bagged 2.75pts. HCE found a placed effort that was similarly backed and put 2.3pts in his pocket. I received an email this week from Betmanmike, who used to be a regular, says he is coming back this second week to dip his toe into the piranha-filled waters of our little comp. There is always room for more tipsters so if you know someone who fancies their chance then send them our way. I may even give a few free bets to those who help bump up the numbers if the newbies stay for a few weeks. Anyway, please make sure you get your tips in early as we have a ***** 11:30am ****** deadline. It is a pain if they come in late as all the early races are two-year-old events which means it hinders my work. Far from ideal. Also, get your entry fees paid. Good luck to all who take part.

Well, it was an exciting finish to October's competition with about four players looking odds-on shots to take the cash. I was one of the most competitive heats we have seen. Dan The Man found another winner and that kept the field on the back foot although many tried and failed to crack the Danny bandwagon which has seen him win two months on the trot. Can he be the first to make it three out of three? Only time will tell. Get those tips in early with an 11:30AM Deadline. Please make your payments to email@example.com (family & friends).

It's the final week of a pretty average kind of month on the tipping front. That isn't always a bad thing because it means we have an open contest which could be won by a single tip this Saturday. Last month's winner Dantheman found another winner and sits at the top of the table with 13.6pts. Shukman is second with 9.25pts, while Longbow is next with 9pts, then Gazmachine 7pts and HCE found a place effort to achieve 3.4pts. Still all to play for. It could be a tactical affair. But will those tactic deliver a win? 1PM Deadline. Good luck to all.
