Looking for advice here:

The situation: $10 on four leg multi with Broncos Warriors as last leg.

First three legs up, return $462 if the Broncos win
Early payout. $176
Warriors slight favs at $1.80

Back Warriors with a $100 for a $80 win less $10 for the original stake?
Take the $176 less the $10?
Ride the lot? Yes, I know it's only a $10 loss but is a bird in the hand better?

Think I've figured it out. The Warriors are paying a bit over $3 for 1-12 and a bit over $4 for 13+ so I'm having $50 on each possibility. So it looks like 462 less 110 or 90 for the 1-12, or 140 for the 13+.

Dear Punters,

It’s on again, the Spring Racing Tipping Competition returns in 2019 for another season of excitement. You are receiving this email as you are on the distribution list for previous Tipping Competitions.

This Spring we want to amp up the numbers and we encourage you to forward this email to family, friends, work colleagues, strangers you meet in TAB's, and the mother-in-law. We are launching the competition earlier than usual to allow time to build the pool of entrants and of course the pool of prize money. So feel free to spread the word - the comp starts in 4 weeks. The competition is a perfect way for novice punters to enjoy the horse racing industry, and history shows you don't need to know anything about racing to challenge the more seasoned punters (Doctor?)

If you no longer wish to be part of this competition then please select the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of this email.

The 2019 Spring Racing Tipping Competition kicks off on the 5th of October with a full book of classic Group races and continues over 5 weekends, culminating on Super Saturday Derby Day on November 2, which is one of the great days in Australian sport.

The competition is administered by The Committee which consists of a panel including Chris Stewart (Stewie), Murray Stewart (Muz), David Gamble (Doctor), Gavin Klein (Max), Simon Jenkins (Jenkisim) and Richard Jones (Jonesy). All Committee members have a life long desire to win this comp so they will also be entrants in the competition and eligible for all weekly and final standings prize money.

The Terms and Conditions are included at the end of this email for your information - unfortunately that makes for a long email!
What's it all about?
The competition is essentially a footy tipping style event (but for horse racing) that focuses on selected Group races conducted over 5 x Saturdays, commencing 5 Oct and concluding on 2 Nov, Derby Day.
This will cover the following meetings:

5 October - Turnbull Stakes Day
12 October - Caulfield Guineas Day
19 October - Caulfield Cup Day (The Everest)
26 October - Cox Plate Day
2 November - Derby Day

In addition to the selected races, each day will also have 2 x Special Conditions Races (Please refer to Terms & Conditions).

Points are awarded if your selection runs 1st (10pts), 2nd (6pts), 3rd (4pts) or 4th (2pts). The entrant with the greatest points at the conclusion of Derby Day is the winner.

How to Enter?
It is simple process to join.
To confirm you want to join, click on the JOIN NOW button below, you should automatically see an email to docsracing - just include your name and any contact details you are prepared to share (to assist us to match payments to entrants) and hit send.

Terms and Conditions


This is a fun event, designed to enhance the Spring Carnival racing experience. The Committee will do its best to ensure fairness, but over the previous 19 years of running this competition and its growth beyond the original group of immediate friends and family, it has become important to provide these Terms and Conditions in order to ensure all entrants are informed about the competition rules and the obligations of the entrant to submit tips in the correct format and by the correct deadline.

• The Committee (Administrators) have the final say on ALL rules. (The Committee consists of David Gamble, Chris Stewart, Murray Stewart, Simon Jenkins, Gavin Klein and Richard Jones)
• The competition winner is the member with the greatest amount of points after the final race. If the leading point scorers are tied then they will share the prize money.
Saturday Cut Off time will be strictly at 10.00am Brisbane time. The Committee can not allow or accept any further tips to be placed after this time. The responsibility will be on the entrant to get the tips in on time. Please see ‘no selections submitted or received’ rule for selections awarded.
Points – 1st place 10 points, 2nd place 6 points, 3rd place 4 points and 4th place 2 points.
Deadheats share the points (ie two horse deadheat for 3rd results in 3 pts each).
Joker – Each member can select ANY race during the competition and play their ‘Joker‘. In doing so, they will receive DOUBLE POINTS for any place they obtain. If the joker is not played it will be forfeited. The Joker can be chosen only once throughout the competition.
Special Conditions Races – There will be 2 special conditions races each week, which will include a Trifecta Race and a Double Points Race.
Trifecta Race – Members will be required to provide 3 tips. Points will be awarded for all placings (4th or better) obtained by these 3 horses. For example, if a member tips the trifecta, they would be awarded 20 Points (10 for first, 6 for second and 4 for third).
• A Bonus 10 Points will be allocated to any tipper who is successful in picking the correct Trifecta ( It must be 1st, 2nd and 3rd placings)
Double Points Race – All points earnt in this race will be doubled (Jokers may be played but will not count for the Double Bonus Points eg a successful selection with a Joker played in a Double Bonus Points Race sores 30 points – 10 for the win, 10 for the Joker and 10 for the Double Bonus)
Longshot – Deemed to be the highest paying horse with winning odds over $15 on Qld TAB Tote. On the Final Day of Competition, the Longshot will be the highest paying horse winning for the day on the Qld TAB Tote. The Longshot is the sole discretion of the Committee and can be amended throughout the competition.
• If no Selections submitted or received, the member will be awarded the highest weighted, lowest saddlecloth third favourites from Friday’s ‘The Courier Mail’ Race Guide. If racing occurs on any other day than Saturday, the 3rd Favourites will revert to the prior day’s ‘The Courier Mail’ Race Guide and the member will be awarded the highest weighted, lowest saddlecloth.
• For example, if horse 4 and 7 are equal 2nd favourites at $4.50, and are both carrying 54kg (before any claims), horse 4 will be 2nd favourite and horse 7 will be 3rd favourite and awarded to the member. If this horse is scratched, the next highest weighted, lowest saddlecloth horse that runs will be awarded.
• If horse 4 and 7 are equal 3rd favourites at $4.50, and are both carrying 54kg (before any claims), horse 4 will be awarded as the 3rd favourite to the member. If this horse is scratched, the next highest weighted, lowest saddlecloth horse that runs will be awarded.
• Please note that any member who relies on the Friday 3rd Favourites twice will not be eligible for final prize money, or weekly prize money on the week(s) they are awarded the Friday Favourites (they can still collect weekly prizes for the remaining weeks).
• If a Public Holiday falls on the Friday, the member will be awarded the highest weighted, lowest saddlecloth third favourites from Thursday’s ‘The Courier Mail’ Race Guide.
Scratching’s and Changed Tips – If you have submitted your tips and there is a scratching prior to 10.00am Brisbane time, or you would like to change your tips, you are required to submit the tips again prior to the 10.00am Brisbane time. The submitted tips that will be used for the competition will be the last selection, prior to the cut off time. All other submissions will be null and void.
• Any horse declared a Late scratching will be allocated the horse that started favourite on the Qld TAB tote and will automatically substitute the late scratching.
• Selections not received (for whatever reason), will be grounds for The Committee to use the Fridays Third Favourite rule.
• If EI, or any other unavoidable cause, stop the carnival before 19th October, 2018 (day 3 of 5 for our tipping), then the money will be refunded (as a percentage of funds remaining). If we get through this day payments will be on placing’s as they stand when racing is stopped.

I had 3 insanely good bets lined up with about a month to go in the NRL season, I'm disappointed in myself, I only had the balls to place one of them, should've backed myself.

Haas top 10 in the Dally M voting - $2.40 (Put $100 on this)
Haas Rookie of the Year - $2.50
Moses Halfback of the Year - $3.50

Could've been a big pay day if I put a hundo on all 3 of them, like I should've.

Good luck with that, I might have to follow you in on one or two of those. I've got a multi on atm....

Roosters, Pierata to win the Everest into Homesman for the Cox Plate @ $83.72
Same multi but with the Raiders is paying @$179

I'm kicking myself I didn't put it on a few weeks back. Prior to it's last run Pierata was paying $6.70 and the Roosters were around $2.50. Compared to $4.60 and $1.40.
