Congratulations to Mark Sweeting whose team “Sea The Stars” have won the 2017/18 At The Races Stable Stars competition and a first prize of £8,000.

Mark hung on by just 11 points from the runner-up Jack Lawrence, whose team “Never Nearer” just couldn’t claw back the winner. While Jack will be disappointed he didn’t win outright, he receives a nice second prize of £2,000, not too bad for a free-to-enter game.

Dave Jones and his stable “Aidan O'Brien's mentor” couldn’t live up to name expectations, but Dave wins £500 in Bet Credits with bet365 having finished 40 points behind the winner in third.

Our top three finishers this season were regulars at the top of the table throughout the competition. Congratulations on some fantastic selections and consistency over the season.

Cat Joyce (4th) and her stable Martinstown Marauders made relentless late headway in the second half of the campaign, but her effort just flattered out in the closing weeks. But still, it was a fine effort and she wins a 1-year ATR Player subscription, as do Darren Weafer (Weaf or Salmon), Patrick Geary (Clondulane), Gary Hackett (Take Out Merchants), Robin Gibbons (CheltenhamBounder), Thomas Ryan (Gortyvehane) and Tom Hobbs (Hobbzee's Horses), the fourth to tenth finishers, respectively.

So that’s that, after 25 weeks of battle, form study and selection headaches, it’s sadly over, but we promise to be back for the 2018/19 National Hunt season bigger and better. We hope to enhance the game further and see you back playing again.

Thank you to all 12,282 players and to our sponsors bet365.
