  • All bets posted must be at least 5 mins before the race time (no exceptions) and include the Time, Course, Price and Selection.

  • 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.
  • Pairings seeded from finishing position after qualifying, 1v8, 2v7 and so on.
  • Matches will be played on each of the Saturdays of that month.
  • 3 Selections required each round, plus reserves if you desire.

  • Player with most profit will go forward to the next round, if a tie, a playoff will be played on the following day.
  • From the 2nd Round onwards we operate a First come first served basis, player can not have the same selection as his opponent in his 3 main picks, if this happens it will be regarded as a loser, reserves will not be used in this case.

  • 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.
  • 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.

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
