  • World Cup comp - expressions of interest (comp commences Sat 23 March)

    Thought a few of you might be interested in a gallops tipping comp, running over a number of Saturdays, using a World Cup type of format - pools of individuals playing round robin matches to determine the players that make it to the knockout round, then a round of 16, quarter finals, semis and final to determine the World Cup of tipping winner. This is an individual H2H comp, not a team comp.

    Some of you may recall a similar comp run on BOAY just under a year ago. I'm running this one on here as BOAY already has a couple of fantastic comps running.

    More details to follow on the competition and scoring format but for now I am looking for expressions of interest so that I can lock down numbers and work out the comp format. Ideally we'd have 24 players (6 pools of 4) or 32 players (8 pools of 4) but can make it work in many different ways.

    Once numbers are locked down, we will have a seeding round on Saturday 23 March and start the round robin the following Saturday (30 March). Duration will depend on number of entries but could run for 10-12 weeks so be sure you're ok to commit to that before you enter.

    I'm conscious that there are several comps across various channels and in particular that many of you will be in Peter's Super comp. To reduce the tipping/study workload, I will use the same races (and scoring format) that Peter uses in his comp. Peter has kindly said that he is ok with that. You can use the same picks in both comps or you can widen the net - up to you.

    If you would like to participate please post on this thread before 6pm on Friday 22 March.

    It is important that you post your expression of interest on here prior to that deadline as I will lock numbers at that point and publish the format prior to the seeding round kicking off, ie. I may not be able to cater for people who just rock up with picks on seeding day.

                        yeah why not then. Like the idea of same races as if Jason has to study different races plus the punters club I might have to take a picture to remember what he looks like
