AUTUMN 2021 COMPETITION

The competition will run each Saturday from Feb 6 to April 17. It will be confined to Saturday races at Sydney and Melbourne Metropolitan racecourses. With the exception of the All Star Mile at Moonee Valley on March 15 all races will be Black Type.

On the Thursday or Friday before each weekend I will nominate 5 races.  Selections must be made prior to the scheduled starting time for the race. 

There will be a dummy competitor called Kitty.  Kitty's selection in each race will be the runner with the highest numbered saddlecloth. Any person who joins the Competition as the weeks go by will pick up Kitty's points to that stage.  Ant competitor who misses a Saturday will pick up Kitty's points for that Saturday. Any competitor who hasn't got a selection in a race (e.g. because of a late scratching) will pick up Kitty's selection for that race.


Each selection will carry a virtual $10 each way stake. As in the current weekday competition the winnings will be tallied at the end of the day.  The winnings will be compared and points will be allocated on the basis that JWH recommended for one of PP7ís competitions. (The least successful competitor gets 1 point, the next 2 points are so on; however 3 points are added to the top competitor's score, 2 points to the second top and 1 point to the third top.) [Note the correction of an error pointed out by JGH]

These points will be the primary contest in this Competition. (List A)

At the same time the total winnings will be recorded.  (List B)

I will also keep and publish a tally of the combined rankings in the points table and the winnings table. (List C)

As well, I will keep a record of the number of winning selections and the number of placed selections. (Lists D and E)

At present there are no prizes for the competition.  Any prizes would be welcome.

Some of the races over the Autumn.

Feb 6: C S Orr, Blue Diamond Preludes.
Feb 13: Black Caviar Lightning, Apollo Stakes.
Feb 20: Blue Diamond, Oakleigh, Futurity, Hobartville.
Feb 27: Australian Guineas, Chipping Norton, Surround.
*March 6*:* Newmarket, Austaralian Cup, Randwick Guineas, Canterbury Stakes. *
March 13: Coolmore, All Star Mile.
March 20:  Golden Slipper, Rosehill Guineas, Galaxy.
March 27: Tancred, Vinery.
April 3: Doncaster, Derby, T J Smith.
April 10: Sydney Cup, Oaks, Queen Elizabeth.
April 17: All Aged, Champagne.

Because there are so many top races on March 5, TWO competitions - one on the Sydney races, one on the Melbourne races - will be run on that day.

All are welcome to join this Autumn Competition. You can join any time but it's more fun if you are there from the start.

Hmmmmm,

Seems a bit unfair to saddle people with Peter Mairs tips just because they have a life on the day and forget to put their tips in.

Aslo is highest number 1 or 24? I ask because 1 is always at the highest point in the form..... but then 24 is a larger number....

Have fun with it anyway.

Iím just feeling sympathy for Kitty.

Being called a dummy for the whole of the Autumn is some cross to bear.  :(

The 24.  Usually not the besr selection but sometimes at WFA or fixed weights it can ring the bell.

Kitty allows one to have a life on the day and not lose too much ground (perhaps).

"COMETITION "  :what:  That is a very nice typing boo-boo of mine  :o  Anyone know how to fix it?

I doubt if there will be many (any?) latecomers.  I expect Kitty will mostly be there for "at the barrier" scratchings.

Gotta say and NOT being critical of the organisers the various competitions within the one lot of selections, doesnít work. There are different philosophies behind each category 🤔

Anyways, count me in 🤪

That's a really good point. 

List A which adds the relative performance of all of us on each day and doesn't give a huge advantage to lobbing on a high-priced outsider that wins, is what I want to be at the heart of the competition.

I will highlight this aggregate ranking in the presentation of the results each week but retain the other lists in a subsidiary way.

Brian,

Would just like to point out that a lot pf professionals get their profits from the occasional big win amongst the daily grind.

If you like the grind keeps them fed ( and variance is tamed somewhat )  whereas the big wins keep them in style and luxury.

Sometimes ones biases is the thing which keeps you poor or just barely fed.

Yes, we are all Melbourne today (and I hate to see Ole Kirk and North Pacific go around without the opportunity of selecting them in this Competition) but.some weeks down the line it will be all Sydney races.
