Tipster Challenge - AppBet

LeoVegas fails to find the value winners at Haydock Races

It was a day for short price winners in the Tipster Challenge, sponsored by Betting Gods. The six races at Haydock produced winners at 1/14, Evens and 7/4.

Unfortunately for our experts, which this week included LeoVegas Sportsbook Manager Edward Rycroft, none of them had predicted victories for the day’s slightly longer odds successes – 3/1 Chti Balko, 7/2 Sammy B and 7/1 Purcell’s Bridge.

Rycroft’s 1.82 points from two race wins put him 19th in the table. Meanwhile, bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris and Timeform held their starting positions of 6th and 15th respectively.

Race Winners at Haydock:

  1. Chti Balko 3/1
  2. The Nipper 1/14
  3. Buttercup 7/4
  4. Sammy B 7/2
  5. Purcell’s Bridge 7/1
  6. Johanos Evens
