Tote Ten to Follow: Racing fantasy game returns for 2021 with £100k prize

Tote Ten to Follow: Racing fantasy game returns for 2021 with £100k prize

Tote Ten to Follow returns for the 21-22 jumps season with a guaranteed £100k up for grabs.

Tote Ten to Follow – the ultimate season-long fantasy game for racing fans is back for the 21/22 National Hunt season with some exciting new features. For just £5 per stable (or for free in the free-to-play version), racing fans can assemble a stable of ten star horses to be in with a chance of winning a share of a minimum guaranteed fund of £100,000. Last season the winner walked away with £104,832 whilst the game pays out to 500th place so there are plenty of chances to win.

What is Ten to Follow and how does it work?

Ten to Follow is a racing fantasy game, where players enter stables of 10 horses whose real life performances earn them points across the jumps season; much akin to Fantasy Football. A £100,000 prize pot is guaranteed as a minimum, with the majority of the eventual pot going to the player whose stable accrues the most points across the season.

Each stable costs £5 (or €5.50) to enter and with each stable entry, the prize pot increases. Players can enter as many paid stables as they wish (or one free stable where racing prizes are available), allowing them to cover numerous horses in the big and small races across the season.

The scoring system divvies up points based on the quality of respective races, with Grade 1 winners earning 25 points, Grade 2 winners 20 points and so on. Every UK and Irish race between the tournament start and end will qualify for points. Points are also awarded from the returns of a £1 each-way bet on the Tote for each race, rewarding players who are able to forecast the biggest priced winners across the campaign. Finally, there are 21 bonus races where an additional 25 points are available for a win and 12 for a runner up.

These include:

  • The Betfair Chase, Ladbrokes Trophy and Betfair Tingle Creek
  • King George VI Chase and Welsh National
  • 8 races at the Cheltenham Festival including the Champion Hurdle, Queen Mother, Festival Novices Chase, Ryanair and Gold Cup
  • 5 races at Aintree including the Aintree Hurdle, Melling Chase and Grand National

For any racing fan – this is as about as close to being a racehorse owner as it gets and is a whole lot of fun to play too, providing excitement and interest all the way through the jumps season.

When and how can I enter my stable?

The competition is now open and stables can be created until 11am on 13th November on Paddy Power Gold Cup day at Cheltenham. Unlimited transfers can be made up until the deadline for the competition which ends on Grand National day at Aintree. There is also a 7 day transfer window at the start of March ahead of the Cheltenham Festival where all stables are allowed to make up to two substitutions.

You can enter your stable now and if you sign up with Tote, you will also earn a £10 risk free bet on your first pools bet.

What’s new for 2021/22?

With a new look and feel, the 2021/22 version of Ten to Follow also has some new and exciting features to help you earn points across the season. The ‘Angler’s Algo’ is a new algorithm feature, which uses historical data and Ten to Follow performance to select up to 10 horses for a stable who are likely to score points throughout the season. The algo’s picks are designed to provide balance to a stable – either via targeting bonus races, selecting ‘bankers’ or the all important wildcard selections which can take a stable to the next level.

Other new features include the ability to see what % of users have selected a certain horse, to allow players to choose how differential to make their stables as well as to see historical Ten to Follow performance. The horse selector also allows filtering by bonus race, expected distance, RPRs and race types to give you the maximum control when picking your perfect stable.


Top tips for picking your Ten to Follow Stable

With a huge amount of horses to choose from and many with likeable, point-scoring characteristics, we’ve compiled a quick list of top tips for picking a successful stable:

  • Bonus races are key: Pick hardy, reliable horses who are likely to compete in plenty of bonus contests
  • Don’t neglect the handicappers: With four bonus races being handicaps, there are plenty of bonus points to be picked up by these horses. Good jumpers who are likely to appear in several of these races across the season are a sweetspot in our eyes as a starter for ten.
  • Irish Bankers are worth following: Identifying those Irish horses who will tick off key targets before heading to Cheltenham is the cornerstone to building a successful stable. Look out for those progressing Cheltenham winners such as Appreciate It, Bob Olinger and Honeysuckle who are likely to be flying the flag for Ireland come Marchtime.  
  • Use the transfer window wisely: There is a midcompetition transfer window which allows players to make substitutions to their stable. With this in mind, trust your early judgements and look to only remove the selections who are unlikely to feature going forwards. Be sure to consider the upcoming bonus races and perhaps consider the horse you missed who is likely to pick up the late season Graded accolades.
  • Follow oddschecker’s own ten to follow: In the coming weeks, our very own Architect Tips will be publishing our own Ten to Follow stable, with plenty of pointers for you. Transfers are unlimited up until the deadline so there is plenty of time to include our selections if making your stable now.
