Harris takes bettingexpert into Tipster Challenge contention

John CrucesStephen Harris, the Horse Racing Guru at bettingexpert, stood out from the crowd on a slow day for our experts in the Tipster Challenge at Yarmouth. Harris returned three winners and a total of 12.33 points to move past SBC News into second place on the leaderboard.

However, he remains more than 15 points behind the table topping Guests, represented this week by John Cruces, Head of Marketing Operations at Dafabet. Cruces will be slightly disappointed with his day, after managing just a single winner on 5/6 favourite, Coarse Cut.
