Champion Tipster Competiton 2013

Post by upduck on Sat Dec 01, 2012 6:54 am

I thought it would be a good idea to put the rules and regs for next years comp on here. Smile

Looking at this years comp, i cannot find much to change/amend/whatever so have gone with same as this year.
If anyone has any suggestions for improvements, speak up and we'll have a look at them.
The Saturday Comp looks to have died a death, there seems little enthusiasm for it. i think we should knock it on the head for 2013. Thoughts??
Likewise, i think we can knock 'First past the Post' comp off too. I will still maintain the figures as i find it interesting to look at winner to runner ratios during the year.

So here's what we are left with.

Champion Tipster Competition 2013

Daily Tipster Competition

This will run from Monday to Saturday each week, with the occassional Sunday thrown in when some of the big meetings run into Sunday. There may be the odd meeting from Ireland as well. Entrants will be informed well in advance so they can participate if they want.
Entrants can select however many or few selections that they want, but there is a change to the bonus's because of this.
The rules are relatively simple.
Just pick your horses and post them in the relevant thread. Don't forget to add your 'NAP' as this counts as double S/P if it wins.
Races are settled to a £10.00 stake and non-runners stakes are returned. You may back your selection each-way. This will be settled at £5.00 each way and will be settled at 1/5 odds for placed horses in all races.

Selections can be amended up until the start of the race, the post time will be the judge for any queries for late entry against the advertised racetime, not the 'OFF' time.
Each weeks winner will be entitled to select a 'NEXT BEST ('NB')' for the whole of the following week, this will be settled at S/P plus 50% if it wins. A 'NAP' must be selected before a 'NB' can be selected.
In the event of a tied week, all those tied for First will be entitled to a 'NB'.

EACH-WAY RULE - Entries made before 12.00 pm (midday) will qualify for 'each-way non-runner protection.' This means that if there is a non-runner(s), after the selections have been posted, which reduces the field to less than 8 (for 1-2-3) or 16 (for 1-2-3-4) you will still get points for the 3rd/4th place.

WEEK WIN BONUS
£100.00 to be added to weekly total for a week win. To qualify for win bonus, a minimum of 20 selections must be made OR selections made on 3 days in that week. This applies to the End of Year week win bonus. To qualify for the week win bonus, you must have made 20 selections or made selections for 3 days in that week.
If the wining total is a LOSS, only £50.00 will be added to the weekly total.

UNLUCK LOSER BONUS
The minimum number of selections at any meeting should be 4. Non-Runners count towards minimum selection total but for obvious reasons will not count towards the bonus.
For each separate meeting where 4 or more selections have been made, the following bonus could be applied.

WINNING SELECTIONS
4 winners at one meeting = £50.00
5 winners at one meeting = £75.00
6 winners at one meeting = £100.00 (if 7 or more races)
Through the card = £500.00 for 6 winners (plus £100.00 for each winner over 6)
i.e... 7 race meeting - 7 winners would net £600.00 bonus.

PLACED SELECTIONS
4 selections finishing in a qualifying place position = £10.00
5 selections finishing in a qualifying place position = £25.00
6 selections finishing in a qualifying place position = £50.00 (if more than 6 races)
Through the card (7 or more) in a qualifying place position = £100.00

Qualifying place positions are where the bookies pay a place, as per general rules, except for 5 runners or less when a second should qualify.
less than 7 runners = first 2 places.
more than 8 runners = first 3 places.
Handicaps with 16 or more runners = first 4 places.

If there is a split (4wins/4 placed. 4/5. 5/4 etc) bonus goes to the one with the most. i.e most wins - win bonus. For a 50/50 split. the WIN bonus will apply.

END OF YEAR REWARDS.
1st - £3000.00
2nd - £2000.00
3rd - £1000.00
4th - £500.00
all other entrants will receive £250.00

BONUS.
£500.00 added to final total for each week win, regardless of profit/loss total for that week.
A tally will need to kept during the year so we can calculate this.


Naps Competition

Entrants into the Daily Tipster Competition can nominate one of their horses as their 'Nap of the Day'. If this horse wins, the S/P is doubled when settling in the Daily Tipster Competition.
The rules for the Top Napster Competition are simple really.
Take the daily nap from each member and......
calculate the winning naps odds to a £1 stake and add to the table.
selections =
winners =
winnings =
profit/loss =
Non-Rnrs =

non-runners = returned stake.

Entrants do not have to pick a 'Nap' each day. But in the interests of fairness, a MINIMUM OF 50 SELECTIONS need to be made during the year to count towards the competition.
Only selections made in the Daily Tipster Competition will count towards the Naps competition.

The winner will be the person with the biggest profit (or lowest loss).
In the event of a tie, the highest number of winners will decide the places.

END OF YEAR REWARDS
1st - £1500.00
2nd - £750.00
3rd - £400.00
4th - £250.00
all other entrants will receive £100.00

BONUS
Number of winners x 10 (amended)


Big Race Competition

During the year, there are many 'Big Races'. These are generally Group races on the Flat or Grade 1 races on the Jumping circuit. This competition aims to cover as many of these as possible.

So here's how it works.......
Pick 3 horses for each big race in the order you think they will finish.
For each selection that finishes in the position forecast, the S/P is doubled before settling.
The settling would work as follows from there.
1st - 100% of S/P
2nd - 50 % of S/P
3rd - 25 % of S/P
Add together and Settle to a £10 stake

BONUS
Select 1-2-3 in correct order and the following bonus will be added
Less than 8 runners - 25% of winnings added to total
10 - 15 runners - 50% of winnings added to total
16+ runners - 100% of winnings added to total

END OF YEAR REWARDS
1st - £1000.00
2nd - £500.00
3rd - £250.00
4th - £100.00
all other entrants will receive £50.00

BONUS
For each correctly forecast winner, total number will be multiplied by 10 and added to final total
For each correctly forecast second, total number will be multiplied by 5 and added to final total


Major Race/Festival Competition

On days where there are more than 3 big races or one of the festivals is taking place (Goodwood, Royal Ascot etc), whether at the same meeting or around the country, this competition will run. I think that covering as many of the big/major races during the season is important so this competition should help that.
RULES
One selection for each race.
S/P is converted to points. The points are added together and settled to a £10 stake.
Winner - settled at S/P
Placed(2nd/3rd) -- 25% S/P (3rd place counted regardless of number of runners, 4th place counted in 16+ runner handicaps)

BONUS
100% winners = Points total doubled before settling.
When there are more than 5 races covered - 100% placed = points total + 50%

END OF YEAR REWARDS.
1st - £1000.00
2nd - £500.00
3rd - £250.00
4th - £100.00
all other entrants will receive £50.00

BONUS
For each winner during the year, total number will be multiplied by 10 and added to final total.


Any further suggestions welcome. Smile

Settled similar to major race comp. Saturdays only, hence the name (No shit Sherlock. bom )
8 free choice selections but with a twist.
The selections must be on a pre-selected topic...i.e royalty, colours etc.
We had some imaginative ones last time.
I'm game if the feeling is to re-start the Saturday Comp again.

I'm easy on it, will go with majority, just emphasize it is not part of the main comp, just a bit of fun, originally started to try to attract new blood on the MyFC site into participation of the Racing Group comps.
