SPRING 2020 COMPETITION
The competition will run each weekend from Aug 22 to Nov 14. Usually, but not always (see later) it will be confined to Saturday races.
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. If any selected horse is scratched and not replaced (or if a horse is not nominated for a race) the horse carrying the highest saddle cloth will become the de facto selection.
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 JWH recommended for PP7’s recent competition.
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)
If I have the time, as a matter of interest, I will keep a record of the number of winning selections and the number of placed selections. (Lists D and E)$50 prize from Rats and PP7.
