Win £30 in our March Sport of Kings contest - Saturday's Race
Closes on 25th of March 2023
You can win £30 if you become the Champion Points Scorer in our March Sport of Kings contest which closes on 31st March 2023.
Twice each week between now and 31st March we will be featuring a number of horse races taking part in the UK and Ireland and you have to pick the name of the horse that you think will win.
How to Score Points
You score points if your horse you have selected finishes in the top 3 of a race as follows:
1st place- 6 pts x starting price
2nd place-3 pts x starting price
3rd place- 2 pts x starting price
Where the points calculated is not a whole number it is rounded up to the nearest whole number.
You score no points if your horse does not start the race.
Our scoring system might encourage you to take a punt on an outsider. For example, last year in one of the races we featured My Genghis came home third at odds of 150/1 giving a fantastic score of 300 points. Similarly Romeo Brown scored 300 points when it won at Aintree at odds of 50/1.
We will show the starting price and the points scored for the top 3 horses when we show the result of a race.
You can enter each race once a day while it is live on our site.
Please note that if you enter a particular race more than once a horse can only score one set of points towards your tally and so if you enter a race more than once you should choose different horses.
To help you with your selection you can see the latest form and look out for non-runners for the current race we are featuring at the Racing Post site by clicking here
The overall winner of the £30 cash prize at the end of the competition will be the person who has scored the most points over the course of the contest. In the event of a tie a draw will be held to determine the winner.
We will give you regular updates of the standings so you can see who is leading the competition.
