It's back! Our brilliant free-to-play Stable Stars competition returns for the 2017/18 Jumps Season with a prize fund of £10,000 up for grabs at www.attheraces.com/stablestars
Run in association with bet365, we've made a few tweaks to the competition format for this season to make Stable Stars even more exciting and giving players the opportunity to fine tune their teams plus the chance to compete in a League of Leagues competition.
The main changes for the new 2017/18 season are:
- Stables now consist of 12 horses; 2 from the Elite List and 10 from the Main List.
- Players can make up to three Main List substitutions per week and one Elite List substitution per month.
- The substitution window is now open until 11pm each Friday.
- More bonus races will increase the chance to pick up points, especially in January and February.
- A new League of Leagues competition will crown the top Stable Stars league.
Stable Stars is based around managing a stable of 12 horses and collecting points throughout the season from Saturday 18 November up to the end of the Punchestown Festival on Saturday 28 April 2018.
You can boost your points tally with wins or places in the competition’s bonus races and will be able to make changes to your team during a weekly substitutions window. Plus, each week you can nominate a stable star to earn extra points when they are successful.
But there’s a catch… You can’t select ALL the big names. Each team can consist of just two horses from an Elite list of eight National Hunt giants, which means players must choose between the big-race favourites but are also given more scope for original selections from our main list of over 500 horses.
The list of 8 elite horses for 2017/18 are:

There's a first prize of £8,000 to the winner and a second prize of £2,000 for the runner-up with further prizes down to tenth position in the main competition. There's also monthly prizes of free bets with bet365 and you can also create mini-leagues to take on your friends.
The competition is now open and you can change your team as many times as you like until 11pm on Friday 17 November.
