Suwaan and so forth for long term Tipster Challenge leader

Tipster Challenge leader Sarah Shannon from OneBet retained a lead held since 15 June despite ‘Nap of the Day’ success for BetStars on Suwaan at Musselburgh.

The 5/2 victory for Suwaan in the day’s final race was only enough to move Ian Marmion, Trading Director for BetStars, into a creditable seventh place.

However, it was another difficult day for the resident horse racing guru from bettingexpert. Stephen Harris, leader after five weeks of the competition, slipped out of the top three for the first time.

Race Winners at Musselburgh:

  1. Soldier’s Minute 9/2
  2. Masarzain 15/8
  3. Mr Sundowner 5/1
  4. Kinloch Pride 20/1
  5. Alnasl 7/2
  6. Adrakhan 11/4
  7. Suwaan 5/2
