Newmarket....Guineas Weekend, can you name top 3 horses to win at HQ on both days?
Just for fun compy to see who can be the top Guineas Weekend tipster. Just choose 3 horses that will win at NEWMARKET ONLY on Saturday and Sunday...this must include the 2,000 Guineas and the 1,000 Guineas...anyone choosing the winner of either or both of these races will get double points.
Posted this question early but probably best to post nearer the time, around Thursday/Friday.
Will post my selections Friday night...good luck all...Jac x
Just to clarify...thats double points for the Classic race winners only, not any of the other races..good luck x
...well done getting 33/1 for Lahaleeb she is a decent filly and should run a good race. I backed Fantasia at 20-1 ante post and now she is a non runner, I think for me its between the fav. RAINBOW VIEW and SERIOUS ATTITUDE, will know nearer the day.
I'm not a Rip Van Winkle fan and prefer O'Briens other horse MASTERCRAFTSMAN, at the moment RipVanWinkle has sustained a bruised foot and to win the Guineas you can't have an injury scare hanging around, need to be 200% fit.
32=1 good luck with Pursuit of Glory also a big price, worth watching out for ..Jac x
You can change you selections up to 12.30 on Saturday 2nd May..
A reserve may also be added but all horses must be running at NEWMARKET ONLY over Saturday and Sunday...Thanks..enjoy the mini compy..x
Thanks Mick..no I think des is doing a great job, I could in no way fill those shoes..lol
Just to clarify then:
Choose 3 horses to run Saturday
(plus a reserve if you want to)
which must include the 2,000 Guineas.
Then Choose 3 horses to run Sunday...
AT NEWMARKET ONLY
(plus reserve if you want to)
which must include the 1,000 Guineas.
Points to be awarded as follows:-
Evens and below -1 point
2-1 and below = 2 points
3-1 - 3 points
7-2 - 3.5 points
and so on...............................
Picking the winner of the 2,000 Guineas = double points for that race
Picking the winner of 1,000 Guineas = double points for that race
Which makes everyones Guineas entry their NAP bet.
PAM H...you need to add a few more horses.
Good Luck...Last posting 12.30 Saturday...Its going to be a great weekend....good luck to all....Jac xx
Edit: 1st May....
Mick well spotted...ha ha... the (-1) was meant to read = (equals 1 point) hit the wrong key...
....glad you spotted that Sir Alan would have Fired me...Jac x
DEAN H....can you submit 3 more horses, so that you have

3 on Sunday...thanks Jac...
My selections are as follows:- Saturday:

Good luck to all and will post the winner Sunday night (late) when I get home from Newmarket, with loads of cash (I hope).
Seriously think Rainbow View can't be beat but Serious Attitude is by one of my fav horses of all time Mtoto, so will go for her in the compy.
Look forward to your selections des and everyone else who takes part.
Tommy2Cans is banned from posting another Acceptance Speech if he wins (lol) and nobody can change their selection after 12.30 Saturday....

Hey Jac, you after Des's job? Lol.
Good idea to have a comp just for the Guineas weekend. Well done.
I'll post my selections nearer the time but could you please clarify whether we should be picking 3 selections over the whole weekend or do we choose 3 on saturday and a further 3 for sunday?
Hey Jac, its a brilliant idea scoring minus one point for anything evens or below. Bet it wont go down too well with Sir Alan though, you know how he likes his odds-on shots!
2-00 Flipando... 3-10 Ouqba... 3-45 Chief Editor
Reserve: 2-30 Spanish Moon
2-00 Distinctive Image... 3-15 Lahaleeb... 3-50 Baby Strange
Reserve: 5-00 Snoqualmie Girl
Good luck all.

Already backed these two
2000 G's Cityscape
3.45 kings Apostle
4.20 Aunt Nicola
1000 G's Lahaleeb
3.50 Evens and Odds
The ground may just suit Cityscape, but a pal of mine has it on good authority Rick van Winkle wont be beat and keeps telling me so.
I backed and watched Lahaleeb's last win and was very impressed and only managed to get 16s on him. Before the race he was 33/1. Just backed him again at 14s so fingers, eyes and everything else crossed.
