    Here we go again. Does anyone have any nice AP bets on? I'll throw mine up later.

    We doing a tipster comp this week? I'm running a work one so would be greatful if someone took the reigns for this one.

    The old rules and info c&p'd in from an old thread Ross created.

    The Rules

    Pick one horse per race.

    All selections for a given days races should be in before 12pm on that day.

    If your selection is a non runner you can either select a different horse up until 5 minutes before the off of that race or failing that the default selection will be the favourite for the race.

    If you don't pick a horse for a race you will get 0 points, you don't get the same treatment as someone who has picked a non runner.

    There will be a thread each day in which people can put their selections.

    Scoring

    Only the horses finishing in the top three will be given points, no matter how many horses there are in the race.

    1st Place: 10 Points + the odds of the horse
    2nd Place: 5 points + half the odds of the horse
    3rd place: 2 points + one quarter of the odds of the horse.

    The results and odds will be taken from the results pages of www.sportinglife.com.

    The winner will be the person who has the most points at the end of the week. If two or more people are tied at the end of the week, the person with the most winners will win. If that is a tie then the person with the biggest priced winner will win.

    I'm in and I'll stick to my usual formula of picking random outsiders 10/1+ whose name catches my eye............and I suppose I'll have the usual lack of success.

    I picked Supersundae for the bigger price on here but was looking at Altior.

    Nice pick buddy!

    I only got to the bookies at 2. Left Douvan out but stuck my others in a yankee.

    Fingers crossed
