You can win some great prizes with our Cheltenham Festival 2017 Top Tipster Competition.
Select your three banker bets of each day and be in with a chance of winning a daily prize or the prize for the overall winner.
Four Main Championship Races
The Cheltenham Festival is arguably the most popular race meeting in the world for viewing, attendance at the track and betting turnover. There are 28 races over four days and the meeting is always in mid-March. There are 40 Grade 1 races in the National Hunt calendar and 14 of those take place at the Festival. On each day there is a championship race for hurdlers and chasers over the minimum distance and over an extended distance so four main championship races in total.
Your Three Banker Bets
We are asking you to pick three horses on each day of the Festival in different races so 12 in total. The competition is about picking winners so you get nothing for a placed horse.
- Points will be awarded for each winner at the official Starting Price as reported in the Results section of The Racing Post.
- Declared results on the day after the each race counts and any amended result at a later date will not affect the points awarded to each entrant.
One Point Level Stakes
Tips are to be given for one point level stakes and must be named by 13.00 on each day of the meeting. You can give all your tips for the four days in one go or on a daily basis. If any of your tips are non-runners you will get score zero points. The stake unit is not included in the daily and overall points table. You can choose a horse from any three races on each day of the Festival by naming the day, race time (race name is optional) and name of the horse.
Points Make Prizes with our Cheltenham Festival 2017 Top Tipster Competition
Points are calculated based on the basic factors of the SP of each winner. So if you pick a 20/1 you will receive 20 points and if you pick a 1/2 winner you will receive half a point. There is no odds restrictions at the lower or higher end for your selections and the official SP in at The Racing Post. will determine the number of points you are awarded. Dead heat rules in any race apply but that is highly unlikely. In the event points are tied for a number of entrants at the end of each day and for the competition overall, a draw will determine the prize winner.
Strategy To Contend
Potential contenders and prize winners will probably select a mix of favourites and outsiders. The Festival often runs to form in the graded races but unexposed horses have won the handicaps at big prices in the past. Selecting just favourites will produce a decent strike rate but you will need some outsiders in your selections to be competitive. You will be able to enter from Monday March 6th with your details and can make your selections at any time up until 13.00 on each race day. The competition leaderboard will be featured below so you can see exactly where you stand in the battle for the prizes.
The daily winners and overall competition winner will be announced on Twitter ( https://twitter.com/FREE_bets ) The decision of FREEbets.org.uk is final.
Good luck and let the Cheltenham Festival 2017 begin!
