Winning Horse Points Scored Teams Scored For
Third Time Lucki 30 50
Yala Enki 25 3
Nube Negra 30 24
I Like To Move It 30 8
Timeforatune 20 1
Lostintranslation 30 1
Buzz 30 49
A Plus Tard 35 38

The action got underway at The November Meeting where Third Time Lucki improved his record over fences to two from two, outclassing his rivals to comfortably land the Grade 2 contest and score 30 points for 50 teams. 

Sunday of The November Meeting provided us with four point scoring winners! Yala Enki won the Grade 3, putting in a typically game performance under Bryony Frost. Nube Negra struck next, comfortably landing the Grade 2 Shloer Chase. I Like To Move It was the first of two home in the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices' Hurdle and Timeforatune won the Listed race on the card. 

Fast forward a week and there was top quality action to enjoy at Ascot and Haydock Park. Ascot played host to two Grade 2s, starting with the Chanelle Pharma 1965 Chase. This race saw some fan favourites head to the start, including Lostintranslation, Defi Du Seuil, Dashel Drasher and Master Tommytucker, and it was Lostintranslation that bounced back to form and got home in front. Most TTF players had given up on Lostintranslation after his disappointing 2020/21 campaign, but congratulations to David Marshall who was the only one to keep the faith and score 30 points for the win.  

Next up was the Grade 2 Coral Handicap. Buzz lined up as favourite fresh from his win in the Cesarewitch earlier this year. He didn't disappoint, cruising to a three and a quarter length victory. This was a popular result for players, scoring 30 points for 49 teams.  

The final race to score for players was the feature of the week, the Grade 1 Betfair Chase. Bristol De Mai has made this race his own in recent years, and on Saturday he lined up once again to try and gain his fourth win in the race. However, it wasn't to be this year and instead the spoils were landed by talented Irish raider A Plus Tard and his jockey Rachael Blackmore. Blackmore had never ridden at Haydock before, but you couldn't tell as the pair effortlessly pulled away from the field to win by 22 lengths. This result scored 35 points for 38 TTF teams. 

At this early stage in the competition we have three players at the top of the standings, Graham Barton, Derek Latham and Peter Rice. The full standings can be viewed here.  

We can also confirm the prize money for this year's competition. 1st will receive £500, 2nd £75 and 3rd £50.
