Tipster Challenge - AppBet

False dawn at Fontwell as experts fail to find the winners

For the second week running, our industry guest found the going tough, with Bookmaker RatingsBradley Gibbs managing just a single 1/5 winner at Fontwell.

Gibbs has taken over from 32Red’s Gerry Murray at the bottom of the Tipster Challenge leaderboard, which has been sponsored by Betting Gods for the 2016/17 jump season.

Stephen Harris, the horse racing guru at bettingexpert, and the experts from Timeform didn’t fare much better at the seven-race meet, with a total of 3.28 points between them.

At 15/8, Lakeshore Lady represented the day’s biggest win for Timeform, while Harris stayed in sixth place after Dingo Dollar (Evens) profited from Red Rising’s late withdrawal to win the opening race.

Race Winners at Fontwell:

  1. Dingo Dollar Evens
  2. Shantou Village 1/5
  3. Goodnitesweetheart 13/2
  4. Knight ofthe Realm 10/1
  5. Gibson Park 10/1
