Tipster Challenge - AppBet

Penultimate week sees just three race wins at Cheltenham

After proving to be an unhappy hunting ground for our experts at the Festival five weeks ago, Cheltenham threw up just a trio of winners across seven races in yesterday’s Tipster Challenge.

In the penultimate week of the 2016/17 challenge, sponsored by Betting Gods, Ball Street Partnerships Director Ged Colleypriest failed to find a winner, while bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris returned an untimely low score of 1.63 points to harm his chances of finishing in the top five.

Timeform did at least record a pair of victories, including a 3/1 win for Doing Fine, for a week-high total of 3.53 points. They will be looking to overtake the likes of Betfred and Pinnacle in next week’s finale.

Race Winners at Cheltenham:

  1. William Henry 8/15
  2. Henryville 7/1
  3. Political Quiz 9/1
  4. Doing Fine 3/1
  5. Iora Glas 8/1
  6. Mick Thonic 13/8
  7. Silverhow 7/2
