After a hugely disappointing return for our tipsters at Nottingham last week, with only one race winner, the Tipster Challenge rolls on to Newmarket for Week 13.
This week, regular tipsters Timeform and Stephen Harris of bettingexpert will be going up against Betadvisor.
Betadvisor.com offers professional sports betting advice for specialist sports, including Horse Racing. Established in 2010, Betadvisor provides solutions and services to tipsters, punters, media companies and bookmakers.
Betadvisor will be looking to push the team of Guests past 60 points, and extend the lead over nearest challengers SBC News and bettingexpert. Meanwhile, Timeform will be looking to bounce back from drawing a blank at Nottingham.
Here are this week’s tips from Newmarket:
SBC News: Sky Kingdom
Trainer William Haggas has a good record here, winning this race in 2012.
Gosden yard has started quickly and this one is sure to be well prepared first time up.
Timeform: Sky Kingdom
Still holds some significant entries and appeals as a likely type for a yard that has an excellent record with 3-y-o newcomers.
Betadvisor: Sky Kingdom
Boasts an interesting pedigree and the William Haggas yard has a very good record here with 3-year-old debutants.
SBC News: Sutter County
Will have to deal with a penalty, but looks more than capable based on debut victory at Wolverhampton last month.
bettingexpert: Dream of Dreams
With those having experience looking nothing out of the ordinary, this can go to Kevin Ryan’s nicely bred newcomer.
Timeform: Sutter County
Looks capable of defying a penalty after his 9-length romp in a minor event at Wolverhampton 19 days ago.
Betadvisor: Sutter County
Really impressive on his debut at Wolverhampton, beating Stringybark Creek by a full nine lengths.
SBC News: Gifted Master
The favourite Gifted Master easily beat nearest rival Waterloo Bridge at Newmarket in October.
bettingexpert: Gifted Master
Developed into a really useful performer last season, and has more than enough natural speed to cope with a drop down to sprinting on his seasonal reappearance.
Timeform: Gifted Master
Comfortably got the better of Waterloo Bridge and Tigerwolf in a similar event over 7f here last autumn.
Betadvisor: Gifted Master
Looks to be a shoot-out between Gifted Master and Waterloo Bridge, with the former winning by 4 and a half lengths in the last race between the pair.
SBC News: Ibn Malik
Runner up in a couple of 7f Group 2 races last year; not finished outside the top 3 in 4 starts.
bettingexpert: Ibn Malik
Features on a lenient mark now tackling handicaps and is sure to be fit and readied for this valuable prize first time up.
Looked a smart colt in the making when winning both his starts last summer, including the Molecomb at Glorious Goodwood.
Betadvisor: Ibn Malik
Ibn Malik looks tough to beat in this one, after a couple of strong runner up performances last summer.
SBC News: Air Pilot
Ran well here in the Champion Stakes here in October last year.
bettingexpert: Air Pilot
Hails from the Beckett yard that has been in the winners and his form in the Champion Stakes last season gives him outstanding claims here.
Didn’t make the expected impact in pattern company on his final 2 starts last term, but could easily get back on the up after a break.
Betadvisor: Air Pilot
Successful at this level at the Curragh last summer. Produced a personal best when 3½ lengths fifth to Fascinating Rock in Champion Stakes at Ascot on final start.
SBC News: Satish
Trained by the successful John Gosden, and made a promising debut at Ascot in September.
Showed plenty to work on in two maidens last season and is sure to be fully tuned up for this.
Showed plenty of ability despite not really being seen to best effect over 7f at Ascot in September, and the longer trip looks an obvious positive.
Expected to show enough improvement on a promising 4th at Ascot to win this race.
SBC News: Brando
Showed more than enough promise last year, with 2 wins from 3 starts, including an 8/1 SP win at Haydock. Starts as favourite here.
bettingexpert: Oh So Sassy
Progressive, hold up handicapper with a smart turn of foot when the cards fall right, and he is taken to make a winning return with George Baker a good booking.
Signed off last season by landing a big-field handicap at Haydock, and a 4lb rise for that victory almost certainly underestimates him.
Betadvisor: Oh So Sassy
There should be plenty of pace with Brando and King Crimson taking a prominent position, and this could play into the hands of Oh So Sassy. The uphill finish here can catch out runners who go too fast under the testing conditions.
