Handicappers Tipping League

The next game starts on Saturday 2nd April
Fee: £100 annually or £10 monthly
Next Race: Saturday 2nd April

Game Rules:
  • One major horse race will be selected as the ‘Challenge Race’ each Saturday. It will usually be a big handicap but sometimes it may be a Class 1 race.
  • ​Additional races will be selected on other major non-Saturday racing days, such as during the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot.
  • ​The selected race will always be sent out by email and posted on the Telegram group two days before racing. If a player doesn’t receive this, it is their responsibility to contact the game organiser.
  • ​The player must select four horses to fill the first four places home in any order.
  • ​These selections must be submitted by email or via the Telegram group at least two hours before the advertised off time of the race. If no selections are submitted in time (or fewer than four) the player will automatically be allocated replacement runners by saddlecloth number, so if no selections are submitted the player will be allocated horse numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4.
  • ​All non-runners selected are replaced by the SP favourite. If there are joint favourites then the lowest saddlecloth number is the selection. If a player has two non-runners, they are replaced by the first and second SP favourites, and so on and so forth.
  • ​Points for finishing positions are awarded as follows:

1st = 50pts
2nd = 25pts
3rd = 10pts
4th = 5pts
There are also bonus points awarded as follows:
1st = SP x 2 (for example, if the winning horse has a starting price (SP) of 2/1, the player will receive 4 bonus points (2 x 2 = 4))
2nd = SP
3rd = SP
4th = SP
NB: All SPs are rounded up or down to nearest whole point. A .5 SP (e.g. 9/2) is rounded up.

  • The entry fee is non-refundable.
  • ​In the case of any disputes, the game organiser’s decision is final.
Prize Rules:
  • At a minimum, the winning ‘pot’ will comprise 87.5% of all entry fees. The remaining 12.5% goes to the organiser and covers the cost of running the game on a non-profit making basis.
  • Each monthly prize pot will be made up of 77.5% of all monthly fees and one *twelfth of 77.5% of all annual fees. This will go to the player who scores the most points in the calendar month.

 *2022 will be a 10 month competition, so the annual fees will be split 10 ways rather than 12.

  • 10% of all entry fees will go to the player who scores the most points each calendar year. This will usually end with the Welsh Grand National but this is subject to change if that race is postponed.
  • ​In the event of any ties in the monthly or annual competitions, the pot goes to the player who selected the largest number of race winners. If this is also tied, the prize is evenly split.
  • ​Players can pay either annually or monthly but those who chose the annual option receive a two month discount.
  • ​Any player who stops making payments will no longer be eligible for either monthly or annual prizes beyond those already covered by the current payment term. Therefore, if your payment term ceases in November and you do not renew, you will not be eligible for the annual prize.
  • ​There is no entry deadline as such as players may enter the game at any time.
  • ​At their sole discretion, the organiser may add bonus ‘mystery prizes’ to the pot. These can be announced either before or after the entry deadline and could include, but are not limited to, tickets to sporting events, free subscriptions to tipping services and additional money added to the pot.
  • ​The total cash pot is subject to change throughout the year due to any monthly cancellations and any new sign ups. However, the initial total will be announced to all players once the entry deadline has passed and before the first race starts.
  • ​This total will then be updated in real time on the ‘Current Game’ spreadsheet.
  • ​Mystery prizes can also be announced and added to the pot at any time during the year.
