One A Day November Race 1 (1st to 15th)

Postby ejanbow » Sun Oct 31, 2021 5:45 pm

ONE A DAY NOVEMBER 2021 RACE 2 (1st to 15th)

Hello and welcome to the One A Day competition for November. Regular runners will have a good idea of how this works already but for maiden runners and for those with plenty of experience please read on as there are a couple of subtle changes this month.

How It Works

Nothing has changed in terms of how we run the race. They'll be two races each month. The first will run from the 1st day of the month to the 15th with the second running from the 16th of the month to the last day of the month. Each day a race will be nominated and you are asked to provide a selection for this race. You must also give reasons for your selection but please note the following as this is crucial:

Anyone who doesn't put in the effort and writes something like "I fancy X to win because he is white and they are faster", "I like his name", "my friend told me so" etc. etc. won't be considered nor will any copy + pasting from other sites. YOU MUST INCLUDE AT LEAST 4 SEPARATE POINTS ON WHY YOU FANCY THE HORSE.

You need to make this reasoning at least 30 words but feel free to be as detailed as you like.

Please also note the following information:
- Do not edit your post once made.
- If your selection is a non-runner you can select again but please do this in a separate post.
- You can post a backup selection in case your first selection is a non-runner and you don't believe you'll be able to update your selection in the case of a non-runner. However, if your first selection runs then that is the one that will be scored.
- Failing to post a selection will see you not scored for that race. You can PM myself or another member to post on your behalf but again, the selection must be posted before the race starts.
- On the last race day if the competition is tight those in contention can PM me their selections and I'll hold them until the race starts. If I'm involved then I'll ask for a neutral to step forward and hold the selections until the off. This is so copying a fellow runners selection to assure the win/place is avoided.
- If a day's nominated race is on a card that is abandoned we will have two races the following day. If this occurs on the last day of the race we'll run an extra race the following day whilst also starting a new competition.

Selecting Races - Back to one thread (for each race)

After discussions with regular runners in our races via PM it's clear that the thread a day isn't too popular and that you would all like some input in picking races so we'll revert back to one thread for picks and you can all have input in picking races. I've started the new thread (we'll do a thread for race 1 then a new thread for race 2 so it's easier for me to trace back for selections as I score up the races). I will usually pick the first race and the Saturday races but feel free to offer a race up if I seem to be taking my time.

I reserve the right to void a race if circumstances significantly change the dynamics of the race - ie, multiple late withdrawn horses significantly reducing the field (below 6 runners).

Hope that makes sense, any questions ask here or PM me.

Please note, when selecting races, please refrain from MAIDENS/NOVICE events including BEGINNER CHASES as these can be difficult in placing a reasoning to. Handicaps and higher class races (listed, graded or group) are preferred but please try to find a race with a competitive sized field.

Scoring

We score as in previous months:
1st = 30pts + 5x SP
2nd = 20pts + 3x SP
3rd = 10pts + 2x SP
4th = 4pts + 1 x SP
5th = 1pts + 1 x SP

To encourage people to look away from favourites as well there will be bonus points for the price of the horse as shown above. This means that if someone picks a 2/1 horse that wins they will get 40pts (30 for winning and then 5 times 2/1 is 10 -> 30+10=40) while if someone picks a 10/1 shot that comes second they will get 50pts (20+30=50).

Please note, scores will be rounded up to one decimal place from January's second race!

Dead heats - the points of the places are added together and divided by the number that dead heated. i.e. if 1st place is a dead heat then both 1st placed will get 25 pts (30+20pts) and x4 SP (5+3/2 = 4).

Results and leaderboard
I will update this thread with race results and they'll be contained in the post directly after this one and an updated leaderboard. I hope to do this every three days and daily towards the end of the race but please be patient as occasionally life will get in the way of me doing this promptly.

In the event of any ties for prizes, the tied runners will be split by their highest scoring selection for the month, regardless of actual finishing position (ie, a 1st place scoring 100 pts does not outrank a 2nd place scoring 120 pts).

Please also check your scores. Mistakes do happen, I am only human. I keep the scores on a Excel spreadsheet (which I can access from my home and work so it's easy for me to keep it updated). Any scoring queries please PM myself rather than posting in either this thread or one of the daily selection threads.

PRIZES

Those generous powers that be at OLBG are offering up cash prizes for the runners and riders:
1st place overall - £10
2nd place overall - £5

***Player with the highest combined score over both races in a month who has not already won a prize £5 ***

If you know anyone interested in taking part or you've been a long time viewer of the forum who hasn't been inclined - for whatever reasons - to post much before please come and have a go, it is great fun, costs nothing and you can win real cash!! Take a look through previous month races/threads to see

Sorry all, didn't think you would miss my little commentaries but I thought I may have been belittling you as I was stating the obvious of what was on the chart but if you want me to carry on with the comments I shall certainly do so but may as well restart from the new race :win:

Good luck all :win:

Congratulations and well done to Attitude Adjuster on win the first race of the month after scoring on 8 of the 15 days, had a slow start to the race but made up for it in the second half. Congratulations and well done to Igoruk who nipped in to the 2nd place by selecting today's winner. He also scored on 8 days with his best form at the beginning.

Sorry but I made a slight mistake in yesterday's chart as I had missed out No Ordinary Joe 8/1 in 3rd place. It has made a slight change to some of the scores but not affected the top players. Thank you Igoruk for bringing it to my attention, thank goodness that some of you are on the ball and checking my scoring.

Thank you for taking part with only two drop outs this game and one of those was right at the end.

Good luck all in the next race :win:

KEMPTON 4.10 PRETTY SWEET

This George Boughey trained filly has won once over one mile three furlongs and placed second four times from her five races the latest over one mile one furlong at Wolverhampton when beaten 1 1/2 lengths behind the M Botti trained Tricolore so with A Kirby onboard for the first time she looks hard to keep out of the frame

Kempton 4:10 Spring Glow
Won here last time out over a mile and a half, and now drops down to 1m2f. Raised 7lb for that win, which was conclusive by almost five lengths (sixth place in that race has since won). Yard are going well with a 25% strike rate in the last fortnight (54% place rate for the same period). They also have a 38% place rate here in the last year, and have a 21% strike rate with their last time out winners (40% place rate). David Probert takes the ride, and he has a 32% place rate in the last month, and a 39% place rate when teaming with this yard.

Thanks again, Jan.

4.10 Kempton - Sky Bright

A progressive filly, she has won 3 of her last 4 races, all over 10 furlongs, so is in good form. Up 5lb’s, but still appears to be on a fair mark. Tom Marquand, who has partnered at Kempton before, is a good jockey booking. She has finished in the first two 5 times from 12 starts in Rules Races.

Crown Power
not the most exciting pick i know but has run round here couple of times always big plus.
it has done nothing to wright about that could tell you about bar he has kept it away from kempton to get mark away down and now bringing it back here when it has chance of winning.
when i looked at race to try find bigger price they all just looked none stayers to me which give me thought this one might have race to suit and kick on half mile out and not get caught.
only once been under 76 in racing post ratings in all runs and runs of 72 here must have chance.

Sky Bright

Sky Bright is an improving filly who has won three from her last four races.She has a five pound rise in the weights for the last win at Haydock but that might not stop her going very well again.She has had one run at this course and did place in that run so has no issue with the surface here.She has had over a month off since that last win and that should help,she should go well again given her current form.

4.10 Kempton

SPRING GLOW

Trainer Andrew Balding ...... ....... ........ ........ .......> Jockey David Probert

An Andrew Balding-trained 4-year-old who has had 7 races on the a/w winning twice and has finished in the frame 4 times. She won last out here at Kempton in a class 4 handicap over 1m 4f when leading a furlong out to win by 4 3/4 lengths. She is back in a class 4 fillies handicap over 1m 3f and has David Probert in the saddle who finished 3rd on her when last in the saddle here on this course. She won very easily last time out and has gone up 7lbs, she runs well on the track has a good chance of following up in this race today.

Kempton 4.10
LADY PENDRAGON
This filly's career best effort came on Polytrack.
She has won in the month of November and improved towards the end of last year.
Lady Pendragon is racing off a four pounds lower mark compared to her last success.
She was placed at Kempton in August in a Class 4 race. That was the only occasion she has been partnered by Hollie Doyle who regains the ride today.
The dam was second in the 12 furlongs Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes and was at her best going right-handed on a sound surface. Today's track, surface and distance should suit.
Blinkers are fitted for the first time which may bring improvement.

Kempton 4.10 Kaleidoscopic
Picking Kaleidoscopic in this despite it going the entire year last year without getting a win from 10 runs out.But this is being ran on the all weather and it ran just once last year on the all weather.That run out on the all weather was possibly it's best run of the year when it placed 2nd in a class 3 handicap off a rating of 88 finishing just a length and a half behind the winner.This is a class 4 handicap and it is down to a rating of 77 so it looks rated to have a chance now back on the all weather.
