During the last 2 days of Cheltenham myself,Gurj and 1964White had a little competition between ourselves (The best man won) and have decided to have another one for tomorrows Uttoxeter meeting and shall be having others at different times usually for the big events.The rules are simple pick a horse you think will win each race and post your selections, the scoring is as follows
Winner- 10pts
Second-6pts
Third-3pts(8 horses or more)
Fourth-1pt(races of 12 horses or more)

Everyone's welcome to join in.It's just a bit of fun.

Looks to be too firm for Douryna and Sway is doubtful so I'm guessing Easter Legend is the one
