Ladbrokes’ Donohue takes fifth place in the Tipster Challenge

Alex Donohue, Ladbrokes

Alex Donohue, PR Manager at Ladbrokes, landed his second winner in the final race of the day at Hereford to enter the Tipster Challenge in 5th place.

The 4.11 points he collected from Long Call (3/1) and Lady Karina (11/10) put him between Coral’s John Hill and Sky Bet’s Michael Shinners in the latest standings.

This meant that Stephen Harris of bettingexpert dropped a place to 11th, despite picking up 4.88 points and increasing his weekly average to 2.74 after 14 weeks of action.

Harris now stands just two places below the experts from Timeform, who only picked up 1.11 points to fall from 7th to 9th. Betfred’s Matthew Hulmes is separating the regular tipsters in mid-table.

  1. Way of the World 20/1
  2. Long Call 3/1
  3. Zamdy Man 15/8
  4. Courtown Oscar 8/1
  5. Gardiners Hill 7/1
