Battle for jumps prize reaches climax as entry window opens on Flat competition

Allmankind was the most popular points scorer in the Tote Ten To Follow competition last week thanks to his victory at Ayr

Saturday is a big day as the Tote Jumps Ten To Follow reaches its climax with the conclusion of the season and the entry window for the Flat competition opens.

Still out in front in the jumps race and with just one more obstacle standing between them and first prize of £104,832 is the Tipperwood team. They are 11.8 points clear of the Mild Illusion squad with whom they have been duelling in recent weeks. 

As Saturday’s bet365 Gold Cup is a bonus race, both outfits will be hoping no rival emerges from the pack to pip them close home.

They have been able to enjoy less anxious days as there were only four scorers last week – Allmankind (864 stables, 21.6pts), Domaine De L’Isle (47, 17), Bapaume (37, 13.3) and Manofthe­mount­ain (16, 31.1). Neither the winner nor runner-up in the Scottish National were in the game, so those bonus points went unclaimed.

Even before the jumpers have their last hurrah, entries can be made for the Flat competition, with the window opening at 8am on Saturday, April 24. Players will have until 11am on May 1 to confirm stables, with point-scoring starting that day. 

There will be 25 bonus races through the season, starting with the 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas on the first weekend of the competition and ending with the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and Qipco Champion Stakes on the final day, October 16. 

There is no commission take-out by the Tote so all entry fees are distributed as prizes. The winner takes 35 per cent of the pot and there are prizes to 500th place. The winner of the 2020 competition collected £64,425.50. Five monthly winners (May-September) win 3 per cent of the pool.

Details of how to enter, plus a list of bonus races, will appear in the Racing Post on Saturday. The following day’s edition will carry a four-page guide on key horses to consider and tactics needed to win.
