November's Tip Comp - Week 5 (11am Deadline)

The final week of this month's tip competition. Before we start, please be reminded it is an early start to proceedings with an 11am deadline. If it seems early to you then I have to get up 5 hours earlier because I'm in Florida (6am). The competition is heating up so we could have an interesting final result (it may even be a draw). Time will tell. So what's the leaderboard look like? Mark J and Mickishi sit at the top of the table with 30pts, next best on 20pts is Gazmachine and Longbow. OneEyeEnos has 14.75pts in his pocket. Fistfullofdollars has 11.375pts. HCE has 6.28pts, while DaveV has 4.1pts. So we could be seeing some fireworks on this final week. The final selections will not be updated until they are all in so we don't have any tactical play going on. 

Good luck to all.

November's Tip Comp - Week 4

Hurray! Last week we had a couple of nice wins (the same horse) as Mickishi and Mark J put 30pts in their pocket when Happy Diva made it a trio of smiles. Next best was Fist Full Of Dollars who had a nice each-way touch with Elleon and put 11.375pts in his suitcase. OneEyeEnos found another winner which added 4.75pts to his tally. While HCE found another odds on winner to snaffle 3.14pts. So the leaderboard details Mickishi & Mark J on 30pts, OneEyeEnos on 14.75pts, Fist Full Of Dollars on 11.375pts, HCE has 6.28pts while DaveV has 4.1pts.Still, plenty to play for in the long month of five Saturdays. Please get those tips in nice and early. 

We have a 12 O'clock deadline (although a couple of races start just before so please send them earlier rather than one minute before the off). 

Also, if the tips are sent after the deadline you will have 15 mins (max) to get them in else they will be void. I don't want to be waiting around wondering if a tip is about to turn up or not as it makes no sense.

November's Tip Comp - Week 3

I'm not sure if it is the going, the change from Flat turf racing to National Hunt or tipsters out of form, but this month's comp, so far, hasn't set the world alight. 

Perhaps this week will see a few big winners. Last week saw just two points scorers. 

OneEyeEnos got 10pts, while HCE got 3.14pts when an odds-on shot prevailed. As most of you will be aware, I am traveling on Saturday and we have an early 11 am deadline

Sorry for the inconvenience but traveling on a later train will cost me double so I'm taking the cheaper option. 

Please make sure your tips are in as early as possible because I'm leaving the house at 11:30am and there is no way I will be able to upload tips sent later and they will be void. Everyone has been informed so the choice is yours. (I'm not going to keep chasing up late tips in future as it's getting ridiculous). 

Anyway, let's see a few winners this week and get the competition moving onwards and upwards. 

Good luck to all. 

Tipster selections: 

12:25 Lingfield     - Hibernian Warrior 2pt w (Gazmachine) 2nd
1:00  Lingfield     - So Beloved 2pt w (Jodonovan) 2nd
1:50  Cheltenham    - Restless Dreamer 2pt w (Mickwalkersnr) 6th
2:10  Lingfield     - Hulcote 2pt w (Betmanmike) 8th
2:10  Lingfield     - Scentasia 2pt w (OneEyeEnos) 1st (4.75) 
2:25  Cheltenham    - Happy Diva 2pt w (Mickishi) 1st (30pts)
2:25  Cheltenham    - Magic Saint 1pt ew (DavidV) 5th
2:25  Cheltenham    - Spiritofthegames 2pt w (Shukman) PU
2:25  Cheltenham    - Happy Diva 2pt w (Mark J) 1st (30pts)

3:05  Uttoxeter     - Briery Bunny wpt w (Derek T) PU

5:15  Wolverhampton - Rodin 2pt w (Glueythepig)4th
5:15  Wolverhampton - Rodin 2pt w (Longbow)4th

Good luck to all. 

The results will be updated this evening. 

Much appreciated.

November's Tip Comp - Week 2

The second week of the month. Last Saturday saw a pretty poor week of tipping. The only win came from a non-runner that saw DavidV pick up 4.1pts. I'm sure someone is going to strike with a nice winner at some point. As yet, it is an open contest and even a bit of tactical play may reap rewards. Disappointing to see Doncaster abandoned. A reflection of the last few week's of the Flat turf season which has been a mudbath. We will have a 12 O'clock deadline but please make sure your tips are in nice and early. We keep having a few late arrives which isn't good news at all. If players continually send their tips in late, they will be void. 

Tipster selections: 

12:20 Aintree   - Present Value 2pt w (Mickishi)2nd
12:40 Wincanton - Fiddlerontheroof 2pt win (Fist Full Of Dollars)2nd
1:55  Kelso     - Clan Legend 2pt w (Mickwalkersnr)5th
1:55  Kelso     - Pookie Pekan 2pt w (Betmanmike)Unp
2:05  Aintree   - Cepage 2pt w (Jodonovan)2nd
2:05  Aintree   - Riders Onthe Storm 2pt w (OneEyeEnos) 1st (10pts)
2:05  Aintree   - Bigmartre 2pt w (Derek T)6th
2:05  Aintree   - Oldgrangewood 2pt w (Gazmachine) 3rd 
2:40  Aintree   - Bialco 1pt ew (Winter)Unp
3:00  Wincanton - Fusil Raffles 2pt win (HCE) 1st (3.14pts)
3:00  Wincanton - Grand Saucy 2pt w (Longbow) 2nd 
3:00  Wincanton - Christopher Wood 2pt w (Glueythepig) 4th
3:35  Wincanton - Cobra De Mai 2pt w (Mark J) 9th
3:35  Wincanton - Present Man 2pt w (Shukman) Unp
4:40  Southwell - Face Like Thunder 1pt ew (Baby Jane)4th
5:10  Southwell - Eternal Sun 2pt w (Eric Winner) 7th
8:10  Southwell - Kodiline 1pt ew (Bird) 9th


Once again, two or three players haven't sent their tips. In the future, I'm implementing a strict deadline and sending beyond that time the tip is void.

November's Tip Comp - Week 1

A new month. Last month's competition was good and bad in equal measures. Great to see David V winning his first competition with a big-priced winner and steamrolling the opposition with 41.6pts. The month didn't see much in light of point scorers as just three players put points on the board which is pretty poor. In addition, the last week was marred by race abandonments and late nonrunners which meant four players couldn't win the competition. The ups and downs of our little tipster competition. 

I'm sure this month will be much better and more straightforward. However, and please read this, and remember, we have a 12 O'clock deadline. There is an early race at 11:45am, so please make sure your entries are in early as possible and pay entry fees, too.

New players welcome. We should have a prize of £150+.

11:45  Newmarket  - Dusty Dream 1pt w (Fist Full Of Dollars)4th
11:45  Newmarket  - Ampney Red 1pt ew (HCE)Unp

October's Tip Comp - Week 4

A short month of just four Saturdays. In what has been a pretty quiet month, with few points scorers David V dropped a bomb on the competition last week with a sublime winner which saw Donjouan Triumphant hitting the line at 33/1 and putting 41.6pts in his pocket. HCE found a winner and collected 11pts. Mickwalkersnr is the only other scorer this month with 18pts. David V has everyone on the ropes and unless someone can find a huge-price winner, he looks big odds-on to take the spoils. We can pretty much guarantee every tipster will be tipping a double-figure priced horse and hoping to get lucky. Is David V a sure-fire winner or can someone find a little bit of luck or been waiting for this day to show their worth. Time will tell. 

We have a 1 pm deadline and being the last week of the month the tips will not be uploaded until the tips are in. Please get your tip in early as we have had a couple of late arrivals this month and it makes my life hard work waiting for tips when I have work to do myself. 

If your tip arrives after 1:30 pm (at the latest) it will not be accepted.

Tipster selections:

2:00 Cheltenham   - Red Infantry 2pt w (Mark J)5th

A new month! Last month saw HCE take a rare win in the tip comp. After an unprecedented number of second places. It was a fair competition with an average points win. Who will win this month?

September's Tip Comp - Week 2

A great start to proceedings with 5 tipsters putting points on the board in week 1. I would imagine that is something of a record. The leaderboard looks quite competitive with Jodonovan on 9ts, HCE 8.66pts, Glueythepig 7.5pts, Bird 3.8pts & Mickishi 3.25pts. Plenty to play for. The lead is fair without being substantial so basically, everyone is in with a shout. We have a 1 pm deadline, but please appreciate the first race is 1:10, so the tips need to be in early, definitely before 1pm.

August's Tip Comp - Week 4

It's been a busy day. Lots of races. But it's Saturday so it means it's time to sharpen your pencil, think, write down a tip and throw a couple of sugar lumps high in the clouds in hope Pegasus is flying high. Just one winner last week for Winter, who had a twist of fate in a non-runner leading to a winning tip. Those are the rules, so good, bad or ugly, the points add up. As it happens, it was enough to push Winter into the lead with 26pts. In second is Gazmachine with 24.654pts, while last month's winner,Bird, has 22.1pts, next best we have Mickishi and Michwalkersnr both on 12pts. It's an exciting month and we still have this Saturday and next to work out the winner. 

Please get those tips in nice and early, especially if you have an early runner. We have a 1pm deadline. (Get them in early).

Good luck to all.

August's Tip Comp - Week 2

Last week saw a lively start to proceedings with three players putting points on the board. 

Leading the way is Gazmachine who found a potentially smart juvenile in Persuasion who returned an each-way wager worth 21.2pts. Second, best is last month's winner, Bird, who put 14.5pts in his pocket. While Winter is a fraction behind in third place with 14pts. It's a long month with 5 Saturdays so plenty of time to get those points in the bag and, perhaps, an opportunity for an impressive month's winner. A win is a win whether a fraction of a point or a wheelbarrow load. 

We have an even earlier start tomorrow with a 1 p.m deadline. Please, make sure, if your race is early, you get those tips in a good time. I don't want any tips being forwarded after 1 p.m because it brings about complications. 

We may have a new player starting next month, so that is something to look forward to. 

Good luck to all who take part.

Note: not sure what is going on with Shukman tip as it is a completely different name. I suspect it is Great Prospector, which is a non-runner.

August's Tip Comp - Week 1

Well, it is a new month. I'm hoping for a couple of the regulars to be back this month to add to the fun. Time will tell. Last month was all about two tipsters Bird and Betmanmike. Why? Because not one other tipster put a point on the board. That really does take some doing. But it just shows how easy and difficult it is to win our little competition. Anyway, it was great to see Bird bag a tidy win and he will be hoping to make it two in a row. We have a 1p.m. deadline for the tips so get them in nice and early. It makes my life a little bit easier and you all know that we have them done and dusted. Last week, I had a few internet problems which just goes to show why we need to keep things efficient. The quicker the tips are online the less we have to worry. Good luck to all who take part.
