Sometimes nothing happens. The world stops. Horses don't move. Points aren't scored. We witnessed such a day last Saturday in our illustrious tipping competition. Thirteen tipster - no winners. A couple of seconds caught in tumbleweed. Another week. What's the betting someone finds a winner this week? Big odds-on. Time will tell. A 1PM Deadline. Get those tips in nice and early as I'm here in sunny West Palm Beach waking up at 7am to get the comp sorted. Not that I'm complaining. Good luck to all who take part. Get those entry fees in if outstanding. Much appreciated. Please find winners, else the man with tumbleweed hair will come after you.

Last month so a pretty quiet tip comp with only five tipsters putting points on the board. Eric Winner won with a bit in hand with a total of 23 pts. Longbow finished second, while Betmanmike took third. Who will win this month? This is a relatively short month with just four Saturdays to ply your trade. Plenty of meetings to choose from with a 1pm deadline. Get those tips in nice and early. Good luck to all.

The luck of the non-runners. Both Betmanmike & Shukman got lucky last week when their original selection was a non-runner and put 7.5pts in their satchels when the lowest number trotted up. The only other scorer was Eric Winner who bolstered his lead with 5pt. Eric Winner leads the competition with 23pts, Longbow is in second with 12.95pts, while Betmanmike & Shukman have 7.5pts. The only other scorer is HCE with 4.5pts. Please get your tips in as early as possible as I'm travelling on Saturday. A 1pm deadline is as late as I can go. Good luck to all who take part.
