The Red News Cheltenham Festival competition is back ! Simple and great entertainment

A special, and popular, competition for our Red News VIP members. (Tuesday 14th March 2017 to Friday 17th March 2017)

The competition is a simple one - You pick a horse for each race of the Cheltenham Festival.

You get points if your horse gets a placed finish in that race (1st - 10 points, 2nd = 5, 3rd = 3, 4th - 1 point).

The person with the most points at the end of the Festival takes the honours and the glory.

The top 3 scorers get a cash prize paid out from the £10 entry fee for the comp. We keep you updated on points and you can chat away in this thread about the racing and comp.

For those that have taken part before, you'll recognise the format - its unchanged.

For those of you who have yet to enjoy the competition, you can expect to see a tight race with the final positions decided on the last or penultimate race of the Festival. No horse racing knowledge is needed - just have a quick look at the form, read a pundits tips or just pick based on the odds for that horse ... whatever works for you. Past years have shown the novices do equally as well as those who take this horse racing lark a bit more serious than the rest of us.

A very enjoyable way to make the day pass by in between United games.
