Selections within stables may be changed freely until
the deadline on 1st June.

What's more, there is a seven-day transfer window from 11am

How does the Ten To Follow points system work?
Essentially, players score points whenever one of their stable picks wins or places in any of their races during the gameplay period.
The quality of the race and price of the horse determines how many points you score.
- Grade 1 win – 25 points
- Grade 2 win – 20 points
- Grade 3 win – 15 points
- Listed win – 12 points
- Any other race win – 10 points
Points can be won on ANY race in the UK and Ireland as well as Group/Graded races in France and Group/Grade 1s in other countries.
There will also be points added on from the returns of a £1 each-way bet on the Tote (eg, £1 win at 5.50 + £1 place at 1.20 = 6.70 points awarded on top of points above).
There's also 23 bonus races, where the winner will return an additional 25 points to the winner and and 12 points to the runner-up.
