After another unpredictable day in the Tipster Challenge Series at Ascot last week, Sarah Shannon of 21bet has signed up to represent the Guests in Week 16 at Chester. Sarah has been a sports writer for the 21bet team since the UK’s newest bookie launched back in March.
She is a passionate tipster and a qualified sports journalist with over four years’ experience in the sports betting industry. Sarah is also currently on a roll having tipped ten winners and four each-ways at this year’s Cheltenham Festival.
Today she will be going toe to toe with Stephen Harris of bettingexpert and Timeform. Here you can find tips from each of them for the 7 races. The action gets underway at 2:10:
SBC News: Fiery Character
A winner at Newmarket and trained by Dascombe, who is looking for a third winner in this race.
bettingexpert: Fiery Character
Created a good impression when making a winning debut and has got an excellent draw in stall two here.
Timeform: Fiery Character
Newmarket debut winner might be able to lead from the 2 box and can provide local trainer Tom Dascombe with a third winner in this race since 2010.
21bet: Awesome Allan
Awesome Allan made a strong start to the flat season with a win on his debut at Windsor. He will appreciate similar going in the ground and should be considered for the race.
SBC News: Somehow
Made an impressive reappearance at Leopardstown and represents a yard that has won 4 of the last 8 Cheshire Oaks races.
bettingexpert: Diamonds Pour Moi
Hails from a stable that has made a bright start on the turf and he may offer more value than the O’Brien trained favourite.
It’ll be a big surprise if there isn’t more to come from Somehow and this daughter of Fastnet Rock can provide Aidan O’Brien with a fifth Cheshire Oaks winner.
21bet: Diamonds Pour Moi
The filly made a winning start to her career back in November and, with her entry into the Oaks later this year, she looks to be something special and gets our vote.
SBC News: Steve Rogers
An improving stayer with a good draw and a recent comfortable success at Kempton.
bettingexpert: No Heretic
Comes here fit from hurdling, has a good draw in stall 4 and the booking of Spencer catches the eye.
Timeform: Steve Rogers
Took his form up another notch with a comfortable success at Kempton and Roger Varian’s progressive stayer looks to have plenty going for him from what should be a handy inside draw.
21bet: Gang Warfare
The five-year-old has won his last two outings on the all-weather and is capable of transferring that form to the turf.
SBC News: Mukaynis
Encouraging signs on seasonal debut at Kempton, and should be able to compete here.
Returns to a track where he has a good record and should strip a lot fitter than a recent reappearance.
On a favourable mark, just denied in Great St Wilfrid off 7lb higher last summer and is taken to build on an encouraging reappearance at Ripon recently.
Arrives at this race in fine form having won at Doncaster on his first outing at Doncaster before going close at Epsom. He showed plenty of ability in those races and is one to consider.
SBC News: Maljaa
Progressive horse who showed himself to be a strong finisher with a hat-trick of wins last year.
bettingexpert: Canny Kool
Shaped better than the bare form a few times last season and seems sure to be primed after 220 days off the track.
The way he progressed in this headgear towards the end of 2015 suggests he should be up to making his presence felt this year, and this looks a nice starting point for him.
The four-year-old rattled up a hat-trick of wins over this distance last year. Although being featured earlier in the season, that is his preference, and he looks the best on the card today.
SBC News: Mulk
Should show enough improvement on Newmarket debut to take this race.
Looks sure to improve for middle distances as a 3-y-o and could offer better value than Mulk.
Shaped really encouragingly when second on his debut at Newmarket’s Craven meeting and it’s hard to see past him here.
The three-year-old showed plenty of ability when finishing a narrow second behind Sky Kingdom at Newmarket on his first career outing, and is expected to perform well in this maiden stakes.
SBC News: Red Verdon
Shown progression in each of his races and should go up against Zzoro in the final race of the day.
bettingexpert: So Celebre
Hails from a yard in good form under both codes and the booking of De Sousa catches the eye on this seasonal bow.
Timeform: Red Verdon
Ed Dunlop has his string in rude health and Red Verdon can provide the stable with another winner on the back of a highly promising reappearance at Doncaster.
The Charlie Hill-trained three-year-old was narrowly beaten on his seasonal debut at Newmarket. Facing a step-up in distance, he does make a strong case here.
