2022 Cheltenham Tipping Competition - Prize Fund of £1,500!

Postby Zipster » Tue Feb 08, 2022 11:42 am

It's very much the countdown to the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and the famous 'Cheltenham Roar' which signals the start of another four days of the very best national hunt racing!

We are delighted to announce the OLBG Cheltenham Festival tipster competition is back and it's FREE to enter !!

The £1,500 Cheltenham Tipster Competition

Top prize is £500 for the winner! + £200 for second and £100 for the third, fourth and fifth placed tipsters plus there will be £5 paid for the next 100 places.

Please take your time to understand the entry terms and ask any questions below if you aren't sure. Cheltenham starts on Tuesday 15th March and finishes on Friday 18th March.

Entry:

You do not have to enter this separately from the monthly horse racing competitions, if you are a member of OLBG then you just need to add tips (with comments) via the usual 'Make A Tip' menu (link below) on the daily races at Cheltenham and these will be eligible for the Cheltenham competition prize table which can be viewed here: https://www.olbg.com/members/make-tip/2

There will be increased daily top-ups during the festival. So you will get 100 virtual points added each day on top of the normal 100 daily top up - so enough to make 4 tips a day even if your betting bank has been cleaned out.

Prizes:

£500 to the Winner which will be the tipster finishing the competition with the highest level stakes profit (LSP) and having placed at least the minimum requirement of 20 tips, £200 for the runner up, £100 for the third, fourth and fifth place plus this year there will be £5 for the next 100 places.

This is in addition to the usual prize money for the monthly horse racing tipster competitions which you can still win during March based on the criteria for the other Horse Racing tables.

As usual, prizes are doubled for Elite Tipsters and trebled for Super Elite Tipsters. If unsure of your current tipster status for Horse Racing you can check this via your 'My Performance' page here: https://www.olbg.com/tipsters/tables/elitestatus

LSP:

This is Level Stakes Profit, One point will be placed on the horse for win tips, 1/2 a point (win and place terms) for Each Way tips at the odds taken (Best Odds Guaranteed and Rule 4 may apply on some tips). So it does not matter if you select a stake of 50 or 500 for these tips, if you place a win tip on a 5/1 winner you will then have an LSP of +5 points. If for example you then have 3 losing tips, your level stakes profit will be down to + 2 points (5 minus 3). Tipsters must finish the competition with a positive level stakes profit to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

Day of Race Markets:

These should be available from mid-afternoon the day before racing (normally around 3 pm each day), the races will be listed by race time as normal as we no longer have the Ante Post markets.

5 or more Profitable Tips:

To qualify, you must hit at least five profitable tips, this can be win or each-way and are counted if a profit is returned from the tip so each-way tips on runners placing which show a profit are included in the count.

20 or more Tips with Comments:

To qualify you must add at least 20 tips with comments that contain at least 20 words or longer with good quality reasoning justifying your tip for OLBG followers.

Tips without comments are excluded, also poor comments without reasoning or any that contain less than the minimum criteria will mean the tip will be deemed void and excluded from the competition.

We just need a few good reasons as to why you are choosing the selection. Also no copy and pasting of comments, you will need different comments for each tip and NO copying from other websites or other members comments as these will be deleted from the competition.

£5 spot prizes may be awarded to tipsters adding excellent tip comment analysis which helps OLBG users make a better-informed decision before placing their Cheltenham bets.

What we want here is for tipsters to share their key insights about the horses they are tipping and why they think they are a good bet.

If unsure as to tip comment requirements we have listed some useful pointers for comment content here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=61789

Comments will be checked during and after the competition has finished and if OLBG deems them not to be of good enough quality they will be deleted and the tip excluded from the tipping competition. Please strive for good spelling and punctuation, as this makes it easier for your followers to read on the OLBG App.

The 2021 OLBG Cheltenham Competition result was as follows -

1 paddysgirl +69.63
2 Will Teasle +65.50
3 Wizzyofc +62.96
4 Hatters001 +60.10
5 sirspread +60.02


..Can paddysgirl defend the OLBG Cheltenham Champion Tipster title?
..Can you beat those LSP's from last year?
..If you can you would have a great chance of scooping the top prize so come and have a go !!

The competition table will be published throughout the four days and can be viewed here: https://www.olbg.com/tipsters/tables?id=e-6

The final confirmed table will then be published in the week commencing the 21st March and prizes will be allocated within 14 days.

Members tipping comments are read by a bigger audience year on year and we want to showcase the quality we have on OLBG so please make your comments really informative for OLBG readers looking to follow your tips.

If you have any early fancies for Cheltenham then please do share them on this forum thread: viewtopic.php?f=52&t=70248

Don't miss out and see if you can become the 2022 Cheltenham Champion Tipster on OLBG.

Enjoy the festival and best of Luck !!
