Carlisle - Tipster Challenge

Testing Metric – In-play specialist takes Tipster Challenge

Conall McSorley, Commercial Director at in-play betting specialist Metric Gaming, has tested his horse racing expertise by entering today’s Tipster Challenge, sponsored by Betting Gods.

McSorley has provided his tips for the seven-race card at Carlisle, which includes his Nap of the Day Bletchley, “who stands head and shoulders above her rivals on official ratings”.

Meanwhile, bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris, who sits second in the competition after seven weeks, has taken a chance on Star of Zaam, a 5/1 shot in the second race at 2:30.



bettingexpert: Tough Remedy

Has shown plenty of ability and should go very close with the Dalgleish stable in terrific form.

Metric Gaming: John Kirkup

Battle hardened John Kirkup has a penalty for a course and distance success here three weeks ago, but with stamina assured, natural progression, should see him tough to beat.



bettingexpert: Star of Zaam (Nap of the Day)

Caught the eye last time under a quiet ride and comes from a stable in terrific form.

Metric Gaming: Our Kid

With likely winner Move It Move It now a non-runner, this heat is more competitive and with little form to go on it may pay to side with experience in the shape of Our Kid. The selection is penalised, but won going away over 5 at Wolverhampton and this stiff six should suit.



bettingexpert: Dance King

Has been running well in slightly better class and seems sure to go close with these conditions ideal.

Metric Gaming: Mukhayyam

With the Tim Easterby string in good tune, the consistent Mukhayyam heads the short list in a competitive renewal. The selection was runner up the last twice is on a fair mark and with the assistance of David Allan in the plate this time, there is every justification for the early market support this morning.



bettingexpert: Rousayen

Caught the eye when fifth one run back and should relish this drop back to 7f (free and faded over a mile here last time when notably strong in the market).

Metric Gaming: Silvery Moon

In the care of Tim Easterby, Silvery Moon, with course and distance form is the selection in a trappy affair. Silvery Moon has been tried in a higher grade for his last few runs, but drops back down to Class 4 and is a pound lower than his last winning mark in this grade.



bettingexpert: Elusive Beauty

Has a solid profile in Eire and could relish this rare encounter with a much faster surface against some mainly disappointing rivals from the top stables.

Metric Gaming: Bletchley (Nap of the Day)

The highlight of the card also delivers the nap in the shape of Bletchley, who stands head and shoulders above her rivals on official ratings and a run to that form will deliver a winner.



bettingexpert: Little Miss Kodi

Ran a blinder over 7f here one run back and then had a valid excuse at Catterick last time out. She has the pace for a drop back to sprinting with a return to Carlisle a big positive.

Metric Gaming: Favourite Royal

Favourite Royal may be able to build on her all-weather form here to strike a blow for the ultra-consistent Eve Johnson Houghton yard.



bettingexpert: Madroos

Unexposed for this astute yard and had plenty of easy ground form in Eire.

Metric Gaming: Big Time Dancer

Big Time Dancer is a speculative suggestion in a race that really doesn’t appeal as a betting medium, if he were to capture his form from last summer.
