    Thought I'd try this out again but with a few modifications. There will be a few more categories but the main thing is that I will not now request the whole season in one go. There will now be staggered predictions.

    So let's start with the following to be predicted by 15th February 2019.

    NH Champion Trainer
    Champion Hurdle
    2 Mile Champion Chase
    Stayer's Hurdle
    Triumph Hurdle
    Cheltenham Gold Cup
    Grand National

    Get your selections in. More to follow in March/April

    Here is the next tranche:-

    Champion Flat Trainer
    Champion Flat Jockey
    Champion Flat Sire
    Champion First Season Sire
    Melling Chase winner
    2000G winner

    And you have to have these in by 29th March.

    With racing off for the best part of a week you all have a chance to get your first tranche of selections in.

    Results will be scored as last year 5 points for 1st, 3 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd.

    Yes, I'll take all entries up to midnight on the 15th, so you and everyone else has more than 3 days to go and can alter them up until then.

    Breeding bits

    You’re obviously not reading my posts ha ha

    Only UK/Ire sires but difficult for a French based sire to win as it is only based on UK/Ire races.

    No problems Ron I was pulling your leg. Thanks for adding in each tranche as you are doing, it gives me a template.

    Looks as if we'll only get about half a dozen joining at this stage. I'll run it anyway. 2 days to go

    Have updated the First Season Sires list, adding the number of registered foals (again this is indicative as some foal returns are late) ans also the current prices being given for this contest.
    I've also added 2 sires. These are Hot Streak and Free Eagle
