We were discussing horse racing tipping in the chat the other day. I thought it might be an idea to get some sort of little comp going over the summer since the football will come to an end soon. The only problem being the time overhead of running it (and sponsorship if we went that route).
Most days I do a competition on another forum. They pick a race meeting every day and you pick a horse in each race. Whoever gets the most winners (plus bonus points depending on the SP*) in the day chalks up a point. Whoever gets the most points over a month gets a £40 free bet from Stan James. And whoever picks the highest priced nap** during the month gets a £10 bet.
They run another where everyone picks up to one horse per day, win or each way and they get settled at SP*. This runs much like the Beat Victor comp only over the course of a month.
Both of these approaches seems a bit too time consuming to tally up every day and I have the utmost respect for the guys who run them. However, I was wondering if we could come up with something less laborious. Perhaps one meet a week, or just use the scoop6 race selections (see my lapsed scoop6 thread to see how bad I am at that).
*SP = starting price
**nap = Best tip of the day. I've no idea where the word comes from but its used all over. "nb" is also used to mean second best tip (next best?)!
