How To Enter

This competition runs throughout the four days of the Festival and is a simple premise: you will get an imaginary ‘bank’ of £100. You have to then place ‘bets’ from your bank on horses running at the Festival and the person with the most profit from their bets will win the competition and get £100 free bet courtesy of our friends at bet365! Yes, it’s as simple as that. The profit will be calculated from the official starting price of the horse as listed in the Racing Post.

Each entry cost £10 with all of the proceeds going to Gamesaid. Each entrant must spend the entire £100 in bets and that can be on one horse (£100 win or £50 each way) or it can be split over multiple bets on different horses. Win or each way bets only, no multiple bets, forecasts or totepool bets.

In the event of a tie, a count back system will operate with the entry having the most winning bets collecting the first prize. If that is still tied, the number of winning each way bets will be counted. If it is still tied, the largest winning SP will decide the winner. All entries must be received by 0.01am on Tuesday 12th March.
