The 2017-18 underdog competition has started with 19 runners in the opening week with hopefully more joining in as the season progresses.

nawoo has set the pace after finding a winner at 5.3 with todie21 and weyayeman taking second and third and a chasing pack of 16 runners breathing down the leader’s necks, but with two more selections to be made in August there is still time for someone to come out of the chasing pack to take the monthly prize.

August current standings (and also season standings) after one week:

Can nawoo find another winner and keep his lead or are there some big priced underdogs hidden away in next weeks fixtures?
Remember that to qualify for a monthly prize you have to make a selection in at least 3 of the weeks during the month, but even if you can not qualify for the monthly prize the season is a long one, so keep posting or join in if you missed the start of the season and try to take the lead in the season table.


As I posted on the weekly summary:
Hopefully I will spot any errors in the tables before I post them, but if anyone has any queries please post on this thread or send me a pm.

I will try to update and post the tables by Monday afternoon (morning UK time) but if for any reason I cannot, I will post at the earliest opportunity.


EDIT: it had to happen! I made an error on the first post of the competition, I had failed to mark down Crofty11's selection as ending in a draw.
Also please note that The table also shows the LSP for the draw although it is only the win LSP that counts towards the monthly and season competition.

There were 5 winning selections for the weekend 18th, 19th & 20th August, but no one picked a winner at big enough odds to take over the lead, so nawoo still heads the field of 26 runners with a small lead of only 0.70pts, this weeks leader titans choice moves into 2nd place with bluemal moving into 3rd with the closing pack waiting to pounce with only 5.30 points separating the entire field.

PLEASE NOTE: you have to make at least 3 posts in a month to qualify for the monthly cash prize, all of those still eligible for the AUGUST cash prize are highlighted in green in the monthly table below as we approach the last weekend of the month, but even of you don’t win the cash prize you can still win the bragging rights :-) by finishing the month at the top of the table and don’t forget that all winners will count for the season prize as long as the minimum requirement of 15 tips in the season has been met.

August table after 2 weeks:

If anyone spots an error in the results please pm me and I will check it out a soon as possible


We head into the last week of the August tipping comp. with the bottom 7 tipsters needing a winner of odds greater than 6.30 to be in with a chance of jumping in to top spot or will nawoo pick another winner and pull away in the final furlong of the August sprint or maybe jockie c & undertherobe can pick a winner after having both made two tips in the opening two weeks that have defied their underdog status and gone on to either win or draw their games.

Good luck all :hope:

August Final table

The first month of the competition has come to end with a total of 28 entrants posting a total of 61 selections over 3 weeks with 16 (26.23%) of the selections winning and 12 (19.67%) taking a draw.
Backing all selections in August to win gave a LSP of -4.95pts

Of the 28 entrants in the August competition, 11 ended with a +ve LSP


Results for ENTRANTS MEETING THE CRITERIA TO QUALIFY FOR THE AUGUST CASH PRIZE (minimum of 3 posts per month)

There were 13 entrants meeting the criteria (minimum of 3 posts in the month) for qualifying for the August cash prize with WEYAYEMAN, having picked 2 winners this month at 3.0 & 3.75 for a LSP of +3.75pts, coming through to take the lead at the line from nawoo (on +2.30pts) with Devilimp finishing 3rd with +1.70pts

Final August cash prize table

Image



In the overall final table for August which is also the standings for the current season table:
weyayeman finished in front with only a +0.05pts margin over bluemal in second place on +3.70pts after 2 winners from 2 selections in August with nawoo a close up 3rd on +2.30pts

Image


There is still a long way to go for the season competition with only a 6.75pts difference between first and last place so it is still wide open for current competitors or anyone joining the competition late in the season, as long as they make at least 15 selections over the season. (last season the highest LSP after 40 weeks having made 15 or more more posts was +5.63pts)

If anyone spots an error in the results please pm me and I will check it out a soon as possible

Note: Only the winning underdog LSP counts towards monthly/season competitions, the Draw LSP is for information only


here is a table to see at a glance if anyone is in form and consistently picking underdogs that either win or draw:

Image

Both undertherobe & jockiec have picked 3 consecutive underdogs that have all avoided defeat with 1 win and 2 draws
bluemal has picked a winning underdog on 2 consecutive weeks

GOOD LUCK ALL FOR THE SEPTEMBER COMPETITION and remember to post at least 3 selections in total for the month to qualify for the cash prize

Cheers bluemal, but mazeymay is the one to thank for running the comp. I just happened to start keeping my own records last year (for selfish reasons, I wanted to win cash using tips from the consistent tipsters!!) and I offered to post the figures this season.
So, thanks to mazeymay for setting the format of a comp that not only do I enjoy taking part in but I also win money by backing some of the selections.

bluemal, I hope your winning run continues into September :win:
