If a member selects more than one horse in the same post, it will be void (unless a reserve is stated). A minimum of 15 bets is required to qualify for any prizes in that particular month, including qualification for the followings months KO Cup. (NR's at Abandoned meetings do not count towards bet total) International races can be selected and early prices can be taken for them but If the international selection wins evidence must be provided in the form of a screen shot showing the selection, the price taken and the time the bet was placed. Selections must run no later than the time of the last race in UK or Ireland.  Reserves will be allowed in case of doubts about original selection running. All bets posted must be at least 5 mins before the race time (no exceptions) and include the Time, Course, Price and Selection. Early prices can be taken but must be available at the time of the post in the competition thread (with a leeway of 10 minutes), these will be checked against Odds-checker and if the price was not available then SP will be used. Bookies allowed: Bet365, BetVictor, Paddy Power, Betfair, William Hill, Betfred, Ladbrokes, Coral, Boylesports (All BOG for competition purposes). Prices can't be changed once posted and must be in the original post, the first price taken is the only one that will count, all edits can be seen by moderators. Any bets with no price quoted or eligible bookmaker stated will be taken at SP. No Exchange Prices are allowed. R4 5p and 10p will be waived for the purpose of the competition. If a R4 deduction takes the price less than the SP then the bet will revert to the SP. R4 will be taken from the William Hill results service. No conditional bets or special offers by any bookmaker will apply to the competition. On the final two days of the month anyone found posting a tactical selection (ie Copying) which gains an unfair advantage (whether that be to decide a prize winning opportunity or a Cup qualification place) will be penalised and that selection will be deemed a loser.  
    KO CUP Rules   Top 25 finishers from the NAPS Final table will qualify, minimum required bets will be needed which is 15 All players will play in Qualifying Round and top 8 scorers go forward to next round.

Once in the head to head stages selections can not be changed once your opponent has posted. Multiple horses from the same race is allowed.

    BillyHills got a reaction from The Equaliser in NAP'S Competition ~ Rules & Information   
    With the ever changing landscape of the bookmaking industry it it becoming very confusing to some on which bookmakers we can use and which bookmakers allow BOG, and from which time it is allowed.
    We have decided to narrow the choice of bookmakers and to allow BOG with all selections posted in the competition regardless of time. This will make it much easier for both players and me when settling the bets.
    From September 1st 2022 the rules regarding bookmakers we use will be as follows;
    The only bookmakers allowed in the competition are;
    Bet365 Paddy Power/Betfair (same prices) Betvictor William Hill Betfred Boylesport Ladbrokes Coral Any selections posted with any other bookmaker will be settled at SP
     
    Many thanks

    Rules and Format for posting of bets
    In this seasons TC Competition we are introducing two new bets along with the usual 1,X,2.
    'Under/Over 2.5' goals and 'Both Teams To Score' will be accepted.
    Here are the rules regarding posting the various bets.
    If there is any information missing from the instructions the price taken will govern which part of the bet you have asked for. For example if you have put 'Man Utd Over/Under 1.80' then if the price for Over 2.5 goals was 1.80 then it will be settled accordingly. If the prices are the same for either side of the bet then the 'positive' outcome will be taken. For example if you write 'Arsenal Over/Under' then the bet will be settled on the 'overs'. Likewise the BTTS bet will be settled for both teams scoring if there is no hint of what you have requested.  
    Preferred Format Examples
    Man Utd (1) 1.67
    Liverpool (1) 1.80
    £20 Double
    _________________________
    Man Utd Over 2.5 2.50
    Arsenal Under 2.5 2.38
    Chelsea (1) 1.40
    £20 Treble
    ___________________________
    Spurs BTTS 2.50
    Chelsea BTTS NO 2.63

Reserves can be added in case of NR's but not if you or your opponents bet has started, so it makes sense to post the reserves in the original post. Horses can be posted after the deadline if a meeting is abandoned for any reason which includes selections. Prices can be taken as per the NAPS Table rules. Winner of the Cup will win £30 via PayPal account. Runner Up will win £10 via PayPal account. MOST WINNERS RULES
    The winner will be the tipster with most winners. The profit must be at least £10. If there is a tie then the highest profit takes precedence. A selection is only deemed a winner if it results in a profit. As an example a 5/1 EW selection at 1/5 odds will not count as a winner.

The winner will be the tipster with the most accumulated profit over the month. Top 25 qualifiers will be automatically entered in the following months KO Cup.  If totals are level for any prizes the amount of winners selected takes precedence, then amount of bets placed).  1pt win or 0.50pts EW each day allowed. (Losses will be incurred for losers)(Win bet taken if not specified) STRICTLY no editing of posts containing tips, if you need to correct something do it in another post, any late edits will result in disqualification from the competition. 1 bet per day, Max. If a member posts twice the earliest one will count towards the competition unless it is a non runner. If a member selects more than one horse in the same post, it will be void (unless a reserve is stated). A minimum of 15 bets is required to qualify for any prizes in that particular month, including qualification for the followings months KO Cup. (NR's at Abandoned meetings do not count towards bet total) International races can be selected and early prices can be taken for them but If the international selection wins evidence must be provided in the form of a screen shot showing the selection, the price taken and the time the bet was placed. Selections must run no later than the time of the last race in UK or Ireland.  Reserves will be allowed in case of doubts about original selection running. All bets posted must be at least 5 mins before the race time (no exceptions) and include the Time, Course, Price and Selection. Early prices can be taken but must be available at the time of the post in the competition thread (with a leeway of 10 minutes), these will be checked against Odds-checker and if the price was not available then SP will be used. Bookies allowed: Bet365, BetVictor, Paddy Power, Betfair, William Hill, Betfred, Ladbrokes, Coral, Boylesports (All BOG for competition purposes). Prices can't be changed once posted and must be in the original post, the first price taken is the only one that will count, all edits can be seen by moderators. Any bets with no price quoted or eligible bookmaker stated will be taken at SP. No Exchange Prices are allowed. R4 5p and 10p will be waived for the purpose of the competition. If a R4 deduction takes the price less than the SP then the bet will revert to the SP. R4 will be taken from the William Hill results service. No conditional bets or special offers by any bookmaker will apply to the competition. On the final two days of the month anyone found posting a tactical selection (ie Copying) which gains an unfair advantage (whether that be to decide a prize winning opportunity or a Cup qualification place) will be penalised and that selection will be deemed a loser.

Player with most profit will go forward to the next round, if a tie, a playoff will be played on the following day.

    BillyHills got a reaction from UBET10 in NAP'S Competition ~ Rules & Information   
    With the ever changing landscape of the bookmaking industry it it becoming very confusing to some on which bookmakers we can use and which bookmakers allow BOG, and from which time it is allowed.
    We have decided to narrow the choice of bookmakers and to allow BOG with all selections posted in the competition regardless of time. This will make it much easier for both players and me when settling the bets.
    From September 1st 2022 the rules regarding bookmakers we use will be as follows;
    The only bookmakers allowed in the competition are;
    Bet365 Paddy Power/Betfair (same prices) Betvictor William Hill Betfred Boylesport Ladbrokes Coral Any selections posted with any other bookmaker will be settled at SP
     
    Many thanks

    Sorry mate, just airing some frustration.  I am now looking at all the top in form jockeys and apprentices.  To some extent I feel that the public is being hood winked in racing.  There was a race yesterday the 5.20 at Nc where Ben Curtis was aboard Spantik.  It was rubbished by the RP and no expert selected it. It then romped home at 13/2 (opened 17/2).  Very tricky to spot winners like this.  However, I will persevere with this as I know that this is the best strategy of finding winners at prices where the winners have to pay for the losers. 
    Ps, I am grateful for you highlighting the Timeform ratings by using the plugin on google chrome.  I use it every day.

    Nobody is bothered what tactic you use in the comp, I dont care if you chase the most winners prize by backing odds on shots or use a sharp pin every day and pick a 66/1 shot.
    You asked all sorts of questions in the General Chat thread about stats and websites for the best info, you were chuffed when you got Timeform ratings for free and then you just back a horse because of a certain jockey is flavour of the month. Wasn't it Kevin Stott last month?
    Go for it mate, whatever takes your fancy for this month, please dont let me make you feel guilty. Let's get some winners!!

  22. Thanks
