Howdy all. The 3 day comp starts this Thursday and runs through to Saturday with a total of 21 races up for decision. The big one itself “The Grand National” is run on Saturday and that is the race could well decide who becomes the inaugural King Of Aintree. Below are some simple rules for the comp which are subject to change:

SELECTION RULES – 3 selections for each race apart from the Grand National itself where you get the chance to select 5 runners since there's hundreds of them running.

POINTS SCORING (for the 20 supporting races excluding GN see below for points scoring)
3pts for win, 2pts for second, 1pt for third. Same points apply if there is a deadheat.
5pts if you get the quinella and 15pts if you manage to strike the tri.

GRAND NATIONAL POINTS SCORING
20pts for win, 10pts for second, 5pts for third, 1pt for fourth.
10pts if you get the quinella
30pts if you get the tri

I'm open to any suggestions re the point scoring system or any other thing related. Will finalise everything by this Wednesday. So don't sit back folks participate and let's have some fun!!
