Tipster Challenge: Favourites fall short for Coral’s John Hill

John HillSBC News stretched the lead to almost 10 points at the top of the Tipster Challenge leaderboard after an unpredictable day of horse racing at Ascot.

The Guests stayed in touch, despite John Hill only managing two victories and 4.88 points. The PR Manager at Coral was particularly disappointed with Arod (13/8) and Clever Cookie (9/4), as both well backed favourites came up just short.

Stephen Harris of bettingexpert endured a frustrating day, whilst Timeform were again unable to build upon their impressive showing at Newmarket in Week 13.

Race Winners at Ascot:

  1. Create A Dream – 5/1
  2. Dawn Of Hope – 15/8
  3. Mizzou – 11/4
  4. Gifted Master – 3/1
  5. Gm Hopkins – 5/2
  6. Balmoral Castle – 16/1
