The SHEFFIELD management have called an enquiry into the improved performance of Carl Perry. After four performances when he couldn’t have won the raffle if he’d bought all the tickets, the Tipster Challenge’s most consistent winner returned to form in some style. Dream Leamy – £50 – won 13-8. Geelo Buster – £25 won 7-4. Paradise Duchess – £25 won 10-11. Profit £147.73.

Such a shame then that it wasn’t good enough to finish top tipster on the night. Step forward Glynn Hobbs – £100 on 7-2 winner Jacks Joel Profit £350.  In a great night for the trio, Darren Driver also made a profit £31.73.

Meanwhile at Hove, Billy Boyle and Craig Morris made five selections between them – thankfully two of those were Affleck Lady (6-5). Billy allocated £50 of his stake for a £10 profit on the night, Craig went £60 for a £32 profit.


“I’m feeling lucky” says Tony Collett. Not sure the owners of Hot Product and Mairead Brave will feel the same way knowing Tony has just tipped them. Robert McNair is a man of few words this week (yes really). No explanations, just a £100 treble. Wiser punters may want to stick with the Belgium wisdom of Big Patrick J.

Tony Collett:

Hot Product (R7 T5) Will be hard to catch if leading. £50 win
Mairead Brave (R12 T1) Has his trap and is raring to go. Burgess Villa (T4) is the obvious danger £50 win

Patrick Janssens

Distant Tailor (R3 T4) He has already won a D1 and an A1 and think he can step up. He is from the next litter to Kilmore Lemon and this one does stay. £50 win.
