Thanks for sorting again Buck Pete. Just heading off to Munich soon so here we go:

No worries mate

I'm heading out towards the airport about 16:30 myself.  Looking forward to a Schnitzel Burger.

With the wonders of the mobile internet will be keeping an eye on Cheltenham and this thread throughout :)

Pete, since I'm doing the scoring today, am I right in saying that anything posted after 1:30 doesn't count? Late entries are void, late edits make entire posts void, and non-runners in later races cannot be replaced?

Yes to all that except....

Late entries can come in but only for the races remaining.

Ie: A new entry can come in at 17:25 but only for the last race.

I'll update the OP to clarify this.

Nothing to do with Bookies.

4th place only pays on Handicaps with 16 or more runners

Come on if your going to do this at least be on nodding terms with how places in horse races work

Which is fine, but your rules say "Points are only awarded for places which the bookies pay out on", which is obviously not clear enough when you ask someone else to do the scoring. :P

Fair enough. I get whet you are saying about the places it does get asked every year to be fair.

I have amended the OP to clarify

*Points are only awarded for places conforming to the bookies industry standard (e.g. 2 places for races with less than 8 runners, 3 places for 8 or more runner races and 4 places for only 16+ runner HANDICAP races).  Some bookies pay 5 places or more on certain races but this will NOT apply to this competition.

If you want clarification of the places awarded look on any proper racing sites for the result. Racing Post, Sporting Life etc.
