    To add a bit of interest to the Flat season. This is restricted to the flat only. Not a competition as such. It is simply to facilitate your virtual betting with a virtual starting bank of £1,000

    There will be no further allocations so it is advised to keep to a reasonable staking plan. No "All in" bets allowed

    There will be no Rule updates other than to clarify any ambiguity that may be unearthed

    If you wish to avail yourself of this facility you can set up your virtual account any time before the end of April after which the facility will not be open for any new accounts

    Detailed Rules
    Starting Bank. £1,000. When it's gone, it's gone and the account is closed. Failure to place a single bet in any calendar month (with the exception of April 2019) will cause the account to be closed

    You may bet in any of the races at flat meetings in UK and Ireland plus selected overseas races (see below). Singles only (win, ew, place only). No ante-post betting

    Please state Selection (by name), Race meeting and time plus Stake and Type of bet (and if applicable, the odds). You must state the amount you are staking (No "All in" bets allowed and will be voided). If the amount of stake stated is more than the balance available in your account the stake will be reduced to the whole of the remaining balance

    Bets will be settled at SP unless early odds are taken (use best prices quoted on Oddschecker). BOG will apply

    Standard rules for dead heats. Rule 4 is ignored

    Selected overseas races. You may also bet in overseas races displayed on Oddschecker

    All place bets will be at 1/4 odds and will apply as follows:
    4 runners or less No place betting allowed
    5-7 runners 1st and 2nd one quarter the odds
    8+ runners 1st, 2nd and 3rd one quarter odds
    Handicaps 16 or more runners 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th one quarter odds
    Handicaps 25 or more runners 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th one quarter odds
    Number of runners for determining odds will be the number of runners as stated in the Racing Post Results


    NB Please do not edit selections. Any changes to be made by replying to original post. Thanks and good luck all

    No all in bets allowed, they will be void but if you stake more than what's in your account you'll reduce it to the full amount of what's in our account. Gotcha <whistle>

    I'll have a go at this, Ron <ok>

    No saffy. I was fully aware of that and expected someone to pick up on it. So well done for being first. Just to explain, the subtle difference is that if you want to play that one you have to state an amount so, if the account is not updated quickly enough and you misjudge the balance you may or may not have anything left. When I record the bet I can simply record what you have stated. If you state "All in" I can't record the bet until I've got the accounts up to date. It's unlikely that I will be updating the accounts every single day as there are times when I don't have access to the internet or may simply be too busy. Banning "All in bets" makes it simpler for me. Hope that explains it. <cheers>

    Yes, Ron. From time to time you might be a lazy sod who can't be arsed to update the game. If we miscalculate because of your incompetence then that is on us.

    Loud and clear, mate <diva>

    I see you said it isn't a comp Ron, but in a way it is. For me, it's what the POTY comp should have been like, although I can see how the monthly replenishments kept players interest going. Sign me up :)
