What to do

Paisleys PromiseCheltenham runs from Tuesday 12th March through to Friday 15th March - a total of 4 days racing with 28 races (excluding charity races). Add up all the winners SP's for those 28 races, and that's the total we're after!

For example, a 10/1 winner gives a total of 10.0, a 9/4 winner gives a total of 2.25 - add them all up for the final winning total - just as if you had a winning £1 bet on every winner (without your stake!).

The closest guess (above or below) to the final SP total (known on Friday 15th March 2019 after racing) will win the First Prize.

Once you have entered, we will keep you up to date with how your prediction is faring by email, and on the last day, we'll send you a message to let you know what total SP you need from the final 7 races to get your prediction spot on! It's a bit of fun, and anyone can win - just pick a number!
