Super 6 Comp - Christmas/New Year Challenge


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

Between Christmas and New Year there will be a fun little INDIVIDUAL comp with a Round each day from Dec 26 to Jan 3. The venue will be a NZ meeting each day apart from Dec 29 which will be the sole Oz meeting in the comp coming at Gosford. Each round will comprise just 6 consecutive races and will be all over in a few hours.

Usual Super Comp structure with a few tweaks. Three selections per race. $10 each way bet on each while $1 box quinellas and $1 box trifetcas will feature combining all 3 selections.

Points will be awarded for ALL finishers in a sliding scale from 1st to last. Just before race one all competitors will be matched with a Head-To-Head opponent. Beating your opponent will give you an extra 5 points.  

Kicks off next Sunday Dec 26


1. Players. It's an individual comp. If you miss a round just join in for the next one.

2. Draw. Just before each round commences I will draw each competitor against another. If you defeat your opponent in a head-to-head you will receive 5 points in addition to any points you may accrue for your overall daily total. If there is an uneven number of competitors for that round then the last poster will not be matched against anyone else but can achieve 5 points if they achieve a profit (higher total than $483 total) for that round. So post early and avoid this scenario.

3. Selections/Closing time. Competitors are required to select THREE runners per race. No subs are to be posted with your original selections. All selections should be posted at the same time although I may make allowances if this is not possible due to late arrival for posting. The comp will close so the draw can be made 10 minutes before the first comp race. If you post after the draw you will have to make a profit score to achieve 5 points.

4. Scratching Rule. You may post replacements for any scratching by making a new post clearly indicating your replacement selection(s). This may now be done any time up until 10 minutes before the first race which I will refer to as CLOSING TIME.   After this point ALL selections are LOCKED IN. Scratchings will then go to the TAB sub if not replaced prior to closing time. Only one scratching will go to the TAB sub. If you have two scratchings and they are not replaced then you will only have one sub unless one is a late scratching in which case it will go to the TAB 2nd win fave.

5. Investments. Each selection will be regarded as an imaginary $10 each way bet. A $1 box quinella and a $1 box trifecta will combine all 3 selections. 

6. Best Bet. Each selector may choose one race each round as a "best bet" race. All $$$ earned from these races will be doubled. In the event of scratchings the same best bet (BB) will apply. There will be no transference to a subsequent race. If your best bet race is abandoned - bad luck !@

8. Countback. If a head-to-head contest is a tie on $$$ earned,+ then a countback will determine the winner by awarding victory to the player who uniquely selected the highest placed horse in the final event. In other words if you both selected the same horse that cancels itself out. If the selections are the same for the final event then the same parameter will apply to the penultimate race and so on.

9. Points. Players will be awarded points as follows:

1st: a points score equal to the number of competitors for that particular round.

2nd: One point less than 1st

3rd: One points less than 2nd

4th: (and so on)

5th: (and so on)

6th: (and so on)

7th: (and so on)

8th: (and so on)

9th: (and so on)

Last: 1 point


10. Posting. Please post your selections by number (names are optional and unnecessary). If you post replacements for scratched horses then do so in a new post rather than edit your original. DO NOT POST SUBS IN BRACKETS WITH YOUR SELECTIONS.

Any questions please ask.
