HOW TO PLAY TEN TO FOLLOW   

Totepool have teamed up once again with the Racing Post to give you an opportunity to showcase your horse racing knowledge. The winner of the 2013 Flat competition took home a cool £50,000! Will you win a life changing sum with this year’s competition?

From the 19th April you’ll need to select 10 horses from the list of horses provided to complete your stable. Pick as many stables as you want before the closing date for entries on the 3rd May.

The season-long competition remains open until midday on 31st May 2013; however to stand the best chance of winning the life changing prizes on offer, try to get your entries in prior to the first race on Saturday 4th May 2013. You will not receive points from any races held prior to placing your entry - you begin to score points from the next scheduled race. This is calculated using the advertised race time, not the actual start time of a race. The competition ends on Saturday October 19th.

Tote Dividend Points

Tote dividend points will be awarded according to the official totewin and toteplace dividend odds - including a £1 unit stake - as follows:

Win dividend – straight conversion from £’s to points. For example for a £9.40 win dividend the horse is awarded 9.40 points, £15.30 is awarded 15.30 points etc. Horses finishing first will not receive the place dividend.

Horses that finished placed will only receive the toteplace dividend points (unless finishing second in the bonus races detailed above). This will be on the same criteria as above - i.e. £7.20 equates to 7.20 points.

The maximum tote dividend points earned by a horse, in a race is 50 points. So if a horse was returned at a totewin dividend of £67.50, the number of points earned would be 50.
See 'Star Horse' section below for more details on the 50 point cap.

If no totewin/toteplace dividend is declared, the Starting Price will determine any tote dividend points using standard each-way terms. Should neither a totewin dividend nor a Starting Price be returned, Tote dividend points will not apply.



Star Horse Points

Players nominate one horse to be their 'Star Horse' in each entry.

This horse scores double points on the Tote dividend points system, detailed above, for a win or place in any race.

For example a horse wins and returns the following dividend: £6.20.

As the horse is the 'Star Horse' the return will be doubled for a total combined return of 12.40 points.

The maximum combined 'tote dividend + star horse' points is capped at 50 for any one horse in any race. Therefore the maximum total number of points earned by a horse, in a £30,000+ bonus race is 100 points – i.e. 25 prize money points + 25 bonus race points + a maximum of 50 tote dividend + star horse points.



Overall PrizeEntries to the competition will cost £10 online and £12 (or 14 euros) by post.

All stake monies, will be aggregated and paid out in dividends after a 30% deduction to cover administration costs.

The remaining 70% of all stakes will be paid out as prizes.

An amount of £60,000 will be allocated for monthly prizes with the highest scoring entry in the prize periods below each winning £10,000. In the event of a tie, the prize will be shared.
