If you're new to supercoach racing, how it works is that you have a $1.8mil salary cap to purchase horses for your stable and they earn points depending where they place in what grade race. They'll also go up and down in price depending on their performance; as does your salary cap. The more horses you pick that win; the more money you can earn; the higher quality horses you can select for your stable in subsequent weeks.

There are a couple of previous threads on here you can read through where you can get the gist of things (but strangely not the latest, which appears to have gone missing).

From memory, there seems to be one change this season: instead of picking an Emergency horse in your stable who'll be drafted in case there's a late scratching, it'll be the seven highest scoring horses of the eight in your stable that will earn you points. ...seems to make it easier this way... Thank goodness they've left it so you have unlimited trades each week. I remember when they began with these and you only had 2-3 trades each round and you'd have to guess which horses where aimed at which upcoming races; it wasn't fun.

Finish PosGroup 1 RaceGroup 2 RaceGroup 3 RaceListed/Handicap
2nd Last-$25,000N/AN/AN/A

NB: only horses that finish count + there must be at least 8 horses in the race to suffer a dollar loss + the most expensive a horse can get is $500k + the cheapest is $50k

Here is how you earn points:

Finish PosGroup 1 RaceGroup 2 RaceGroup 3 RaceListed/HandicapJockey

NB: You also pick a "captain" for double points + some big races are re-classified for scoring purposes (you can see it in-game)

Given the schedule, you pretty much want to be at the front of the pack after the first 5 rounds. The remaining 3 are at just one race venue, so it will be difficult to make any big moves unless you jag several unfancied prospects.

I can start a league if there's any other interest. Some other forums may have an official league with some dinky prizes, otherwise people can just play overall.

The game is located here: (or via half a dozen different News Ltd papers)
