BetVictorIt's day two of the compy, and after an excellent opening day with 188 entries, we have a pair of clear pace-setters in Ian Friend and Tony MS, who rightly identified both 13/2 scorer, Billy Cuckoo, and 12/1 winner, Tisfreetdream.

Plenty of players nabbed one or other, and even if you drew a blank on day one, there's lots and lots of time to get on track.

The rules can be found in the day one post here, but a quick precis is as follows:

  • Enter your name, email, and BetVictor username in the 'website' box in the comments space (note, you must have a BetVictor account to take part in this competition - see below if you've not yet got one).
  • Select your horse for each of the two selected races and post in the comment box.
  • Click 'post comment'

You need a BetVictor account to enter this competition. If you don't yet have one, you can register here.

Your first 30 days for just £1

I just want to clarify one point. A few people were asking about nap selections for the highest priced winner contest. Apologies for confusion here: no need to nominate a nap, both your selections each day will be entered. Simple.

OK, to day two's (Tuesday's) races, and they are:

2.30 Taunton

3.25 Southwell

Good luck!


p.s. here are the early standings... (if you don't see your name and you registered a winner on day one, it's because you didn't enter a BetVictor username. Sorry, but you must be registered with them to be eligible for their free bet cash. And fair enough, I say).

World Hurdle tickets

Who will claim this pair of beauties?

It's the final day of this week's tipping competition, and what a week it's been. Some truly impressive performances, most notably - to date - from French Freddy, who has notched FIVE of the eight winners and a level stakes profit of 22.23 units. Excellent work.

But there's still much to play for. Thirteen players are within 11.5 points of Freddy and, if FF picks two losers today, those who pick two winners will be two points nearer to the summit.

So get your thinking caps on!

As an incentive for you to play if you're nearer the foot of the league (like me!), I'll be publishing a table of all scoring players after today's second race. Remember, you're playing for two tickets to Ladbrokes World Hurdle day, kindly provided by the sponsors (see image top right).

Today's races are:

3.05 Lingfield (#10, My Scat Daddy a non-runner)

Your first 30 days for just £1

4.05 Sandown (#3, Clowance House, and #7, Be All Man are non-runners)

Same drill as all week - add your full name and your two selections in a comment below.

Good luck!

Now then, as well as these lovely tickets for this week's competition, we'll be starting afresh next week with a new competition, and some betting vouchers courtesy of our friends at BetVictor.

In fact, BetVictor have stepped in to offer free bets to the tune of £200 to be won over the next four weeks! 😀

There will be some slight rule changes, but nothing onerous. The key one is that you MUST have a BetVictor account to enter, as the prizes will be paid into your account for betting purposes.

The other one of note is that - so that everyone can enter - I'll be nominating the competition races the night before.

So look out for an email from me on Sunday evening about that. In the meantime, do get over to BetVictor and register if you haven't already. (You'll need your username to enter). Oh yeah, and they'll also match your first bet with a free wager up to £25, which is pretty good.
