I know that many of you employed in racing, especially journalists and broadcasters, jockeys and trainers, PR reps for the major bookmakers et al, are admired by racing fans and your opinions eagerly sought at Preview Nights and by your Twitter followers.
This blog is now getting around 1,000 views a day and rising so there will be many who’d love to see your best bets for Cheltenham all in the one place.
If you’d like to tweet me your Festival Yankee, or, indeed, leave it below this article as a comment, along with your name, your fans can see your selections and perhaps have a bet themselves.
My good friend Iain Turner, PR Supremo at WBX.com and form-superbrain, has kindly agreed to give the competition winner a free £250 charity bet – (£500 if picking all four winners) – on the John Smith’s Grand National.
I will provide a nice Trophy for the victor and I will keep this article updated with your selections as they come in by posting them in the comments section below.
The competition is open to anyone on Twitter who is professionally involved in racing, including owners. (I will tweet some personal invitations to the pros not following me).
Entries close at midnight on Monday 14th March
Please make the first horse mentioned in your tweet/comment your nap
Winner is the one with highest total return to a £1 stake Yankee on their selections at industry SP.
If no one gets two winners, the best priced nap (first selection mentioned) wins
Good luck, and to those brave enough to enter, a big . . .
