BetBright’s Conor White has adopted a bold approach in the Tipster Challenge at Sedgefield, by taking on several short price favourites in a bid to challenge the leaders.

The Marketing Manager for the Irish operator has gone against the likes of Jac The Legend and Crackdeloust, preferring to take a chance on relative outsiders such as Shake It Up and Bollin Ace.

With five weeks to go in the Betting Gods sponsored challenge, White will be going up against sixth placed Stephen Harris, the racing guru from bettingexpert, and the experts from Timeform in 15th.



bettingexpert: Onwiththeparty

Has been laboured despite attracting strong cash all winter and perhaps will improve now the ground has finally dried up.

Timeform: Houndscourt

Has returned to some form on his last couple of runs; unlucky to bump into the thriving Joseph Mercer last time.

BetBright: Snapping Turtle

Goes well at this Sedgefield track, handles all going and on fair mark.



bettingexpert: Little Miss Poet

Will need to jump more fluently than when turned over at 1/10 last time at Exeter, but a repeat of her previous win would be enough to win this on the bridle.

Timeform: Hint Of Grey

Confirmed the promise of her Huntingdon second when landing a Fakenham maiden hurdle 12 days ago.

BetBright: Hint Of Grey

One to beat after recent win and can still improve.



bettingexpert: Jac The Legend

Has the assistance of a very promising young 7lb claimer for the first time and will appreciate the decent ground expected today at Sedgefield.

Timeform: Jac The Legend

Hasn’t been at his best of late but this is a class drop for him and he can bounce back off a reduced mark.

BetBright: Shake It Up

Irish raider will appreciate the better ground and jockey claim to make presence felt.



bettingexpert: Crackdeloust

Shaped well over 2m here last time against Mr Clarkson and can reverse the form over 3f further.

Timeform: Crackdeloust

Shaped well when splitting Mr Clarkson and Reverant Cust here last month and is fancied to improve again now handicapping over a longer trip for a yard with a good record in these races with decent pots in the North.

BetBright: Bollin Ace

Set to regain winning thread at Sedgefield after falling when in front last time out.



bettingexpert: Al Reesha

Comes from a red-hot yard and can make a winning chase debut if jumping fluently against some weak northern rivals.

Timeform: Whitsundays

Returned to form over further at this course two weeks ago and a repeat of that run may suffice in a contest lacking depth.

BetBright: Whitsundays

Second here last twice following a break and the one to beat in this field.



bettingexpert: Hemsley Lad

Shaped well on his hurdling debut in a strong race for the grade and can improve past the odds-on favourite.

Timeform: Bordeaux Bill

Won in the style of a useful novice over C&D in January and he is expected to defy a penalty with the prospect of even more to come.

BetBright: Bordeaux Bill

Can make it two from two over hurdles and repeat course win in January.



bettingexpert: Copt Hill

Travels like a horse ahead of his mark on deep ground and has been given a right chance by the handicapper after a long losing run.

Timeform: Alys Rock

A badly-handicapped and/or limited bunch, but Alys Rock is at least a last-time-out winner representing an in-form yard.

BetBright: Nicki’s Nipper

Chance taken she can last home on better ground in a poor race.
