Bragging rights over your mates. Maybe a couple of pints down the pub on Friday night. A few weeks in the good books of your other half. There’s quite a few benefits to being an awesome Cheltenham Festival 2013 tipster, but none of them sounds as good as £5,000 in cash.
Here’s your chance to show off your tipping skills, your extensive knowledge of form and bask in a glow of superiority. Or you could just fluke picking winners all week by choosing them on funny names and pretty colours and you’d top the leaderboard. Either way is good.
Simply register for free in Paddy Power’s Cheltenham Naps Competition and make your choices each day.
It’s not just about picking favourites though, that would be far too easy and the last thing we need is Alex Hammond winning this competition. This game is about a healthy mix of long shots and short favourites and getting the balance right is key to cashing in on the £5k.
You get 20 points for a 20/1 winner, 10 points for a 10/1 winner, one point for a winner at evens and so on. Just keep nailing the winners and it is happy days.
The top 20 tipsters each day will win prizes including a top prize of £500 with the overall Festival winner collecting a tidy £5,000. There’s some decent prizes for the runners-up as well although you won’t get the same amount of praise from your friends and we won’t give you any kind of kudos on the Blog.
You’ve got a few more days to plough through the form guides and make your selections. Some top tipping this week can pay for your next holiday, some handy gadgets or a night out that would make Charlie Sheen jealous.
