    Hi
    The Ten To Follow competition is back and being an old favourite of mine I fully recommend this one for a bit of fun. ๐Ÿ™‚ For those who have not dabbled before you have to select a list of ten horses from a list of five hundred or so supplied by the competition hosts and each time your selection wins you accumulate points dependent on its SP and grade of race etc.
    The list which has the best points total wins the relevant monthly or competition prize. The monthly prizes are usually about ten thousand pounds and the final prize pay out can be as high as two hundred and fifty thousand pounds.
    No one says it will be easy you are taking on the professional syndicates etc here but I am sure we can come up with list or two between us. As it is meant to be a bit of fun if anyone wants to join in just drop me a note and I will fund a few lines under the goalpoststowinningposts logo and we can share the winnings.
    If you are not sure what to back I will print a list of possibilities and let each member choose a couple of entries. The obvious selections will be horses such as the unbeaten Altior who is likely to remain unbeaten and win big prize money races along the way. However that is just an example and likely to be in 90% of all the entries.
    Just let me know if you want to join in…its just a bit of fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m in.
    Stable selections below, I guess take a couple if they agree with anyone else. Common denominator?
    Obviously the higher rated horses will be more popular but I’ve tried to add a few lower rated horse too.

    We now have eleven entries and are open to one or more suggestions before finalising the entry lists as I will be putting a few lines down.

    Cheers Mike
    Regrettably, I wasn’t on Blaze A Trail. (can’t cover everyone, although I’m sure I have tried that in the past).
    I did see it won though – great shout!

    Hi Nick
    I have entered the Ten To Follow lines which I will post in full at a later date but this particular line will be our line for which any winnings will be shared 50/50.
    It includes four of your selections (so you can blame me for the other six) if you want to follow them pop the list into one of the free horse trackers available and they will notify you when they come out for a run. Unfortunately Paisley Park runs tomorrow the day before the competition starts but he will probaly run again in November. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi
    We have a handful of runners going in at the start of the competition and although unfortunately Paisley Park and Champ have already won this was the day before the competition started, but such is life. ๐Ÿ™
    Yesterday as the competiton started we had a runner in Mister Malarkey who ran with credit but could not start us off. We have a few chances today by way of Honeysuckle, Bacradys, Fakir D’Oudaries and Envoi Allen who all run at Fairyhouse.

    Hi Mike
    None too shabby yesterday.
    If nothing else, it adds a little more interest to the racing without having to dip into your pocket.
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed, its off to a good start.

    All the best
    Nick

    Hi
    I have left the main thread open so that I can update the points totals at the end of each month but in the meantime we have a host of entries running today.
    Kempton 1.55 Master Tommytucker
    Leopardstown 2.20 Laurina and Fakir D’oudiaries
    Kempton 2.30 Fusil Raffles
    Kempton 3.05 Cyrname, Lostintranslation and Clan Des Obeaux
    The fun part of the ten to follow competition is that it enables you to bet against your selections especially if they are the favourite/s.

    Hi Nick (updated)
    Just a quick update to say that our joint line has had another couple of winners this month with Paisley Park and Real Steel bringing home some useful points.
    Also Fakir D’oudaries, Mister Malarkey, A Plus Tard and Battleoverdoyen are all running at the weekend and could get the line off to a cracking start for February. ๐Ÿ™‚
    As for my lines apart the four runners mentioned above I also have Honeysuckle, Klassical Dream, Chacon Por Soi, Envoi Allen, Laurina and La Bague Au Roi declared so it could be a critical few days for this particular thread. ๐Ÿ™‚
