GROUPIES - Spring 2019 - rd 1 Winx Stakes


GROUPIES - Spring 2019 - round 1 -  Winx Stakes

Though the mighty mare has now been retired, the race named in her honour kicks off the Spring racing season and the Groupies 2019/2020 Tipping Competition.

The field for the 2019 Winx Stakes is below and ten interesting runners will be contesting for the prize.

For the benefit of any new players here are the rules of play.


The Groupies tip Group One Races only, a simple formula that has stood the test of time through the years since the competition was devised by Tontonan in 2003.

There are 31 Group One races this Spring, starting with the Winx Stakes on 24 August and concluding with the Kingston Town Classic on December 7th.


Each week a tipping thread will be posted a few days before the event/s (on Thursday for Saturday meetings, for instance). All you have to do is place one tip for each Group One race and nominate a substitute if you so wish. (see below)

Scoring  (TAB/Ubet dividends)

1st – 5 points win dividend + place dividend

2nd – 2 points + place dividend

3rd – 1 point + place dividend.

Substitutes (optional)

Tipsters can nominate a substitute, preferably designated with brackets (…).Substitutes will only count if your first selection is scratched and the sub wins or runs a place.

If no sub is nominated and your selection is scratched - tough luck - though if time permits before the race in question, you may select a replacement.

It goes without saying that all tips must be registered prior to race start time.

With the new forum being a vast improvement on the old one, it is much easier to place tips or change your selection, with posts being registered in real time, with no waiting for moderation.

Results will be posted regularly, probably on the Sunday following or shortly thereafter.

The Groupies is open to all genuine contenders and new players are welcome to try their luck and vye for Groupies Champion of the Spring.
