Tipping Competition Day Two

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.

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).

    2.30 NAP – Gilzean – should be up to winning such a shocking race ( even by default ) judged on efforts since leaving NTD.

    3.25 Mazovian – Pin no good and one of 4 selected by the fork. Course specialist inc trip and now below last winning mark.

    3.25 Southwell – Abi Scarlet, two from two at the track, and should get a nice tow into the race this afternoon. Stamina a concern (0/4 at 7f)
    2.30 Taunton – Chosen Dream. If he can’t win today, he probably won’t ever win. Terrible race and McCoy does the steering…

    Good luck all. (I’ve had a cheeky £5 e/w double – you never know!)

    Well done to Graham and Adam, who were the only two qualifying entries to find The Last Bridge, 14/1 winner of our first leg today. They also now lead the overall high priced tip competition.

    And Light Burst, heavily backed from 4’s into 2/1 favourite scraps on grimly to repel challengers in the second of our races. 28 of you had that one, causing yours truly something of an admin overhead!!

    Updated scored to follow.

    Score update…

    Ian Friend and Tony MS cling on to their day one lead, but only by their fingernails, as the first challengers begin to close.

    Stuart Boa and Robert Jollybob are 4.5 units back after a 12/1 winner on day one and a 2/1 score on day two.

    And there are a further sixteen players on nine points or more.

    Underlining the trickiness of things so far, just 31 of the 190 odd players are off the mark so, as I’ve said, there’s still all to play for!

    More later when I’ve worked out what day three’s races will be…
