The CEO from Argyll Entertainment, the operator behind the new Alan Brazil branded sportsbook BetonBrazil, has stepped up to take the Tipster Challenge at Bath.
Stuart Tilly has confessed to receiving a little help from Alan himself, and is quietly confident of helping the Guests maintain a lead at the top of the leaderboard.
BetonBrazil.com is the latest gambling site to be launched by UK licensed operator, Argyll Entertainment, and features the name, face and voice of ex-Scottish International footballer turned award-winning broadcaster, Alan Brazil, as its brand ambassador.
Tilly will be going against Tipster Challenge regulars from SBC News and Timeform, as well as Stephen Harris, the Horse Racing Guru from bettingexpert.
SBC News: Nuclear Power
Went close at Chelmsford last time out, and boosted by the withdrawal of Ernststavroblofeld.
bettingexpert: Nuclear Power
Posted a much improved effort last time out, and can make the most of the weight he receives from his main market rival.
Timeform: Nuclear Power
Improved on his first start for William Muir at Chelmsford and looks the way to go here.
BetonBrazil: Trump’s Magic
Expensive newcomer. Other runners not shown much, so could be better than the others for his debut.
SBC News: Edged Out
Ran well here a few weeks ago, and stands out amongst a field peppered with out-of-form horses.
bettingexpert: Archie Stevens
Has a great draw to attack from stall one if his young rider can get him into an early lead on the rail.
Timeform: Edged Out
Bounced back to form when third over shorter distance here 3 weeks ago, and in a race where a number have something to prove she gets the nod to resume winning ways.
BetonBrazil: Dreams of Glory
Unlucky last time out, but showed good form before that. Top apprentice jock on board.
SBC News: Lapilli
The starting price is a clear indication of the bookies confidence in a Lapilli win.
Won with a ton in hand last week and should be able to defy a penalty.
Was a comfortable winner on just his second start in handicaps at Yarmouth recently, travelling strongly and quickening clear in impressive fashion.
Comes in as the clear form pick, and may have something in hand on these.
SBC News: Zaakhir
Dropped 3lb by the handicapper, and shorter trip is expected to suit after fading late at Salisbury.
Took a keen grip before failing to see out 1m 4f at Salisbury last time, and should be ideally suited to this shorter trip from a decent handicap mark.
The well-bred Canonbury looks a typical Sir Michael Stoute improver now having her attentions switched to handicaps, and is confidently selected to get off the mark.
Form of previous runs working out well. Favourite form not so good, so is the pick of the prices.
SBC News: Elle Rebelle
Not much form to go on, so we’ll side with the consistent Elle Rebelle.
bettingexpert: Captain Oats
Hardly improving at the age of 13, but ran well on his latest start and is just the type Timmy Murphy might be able to kid home if the cards fall right.
Timeform: Elle Rebelle
Has been holding her form well of late and looks one of the more solid runners in this field, so gets a tentative vote with Luke Morris back in the plate.
BetonBrazil: Deftera Lad
Wide open, close your eyes and pick a number.
SBC News: Mia Tesoro
Completed a hat-trick at Salisbury, and taken to hold off The Salmon Man despite a 7lb raise.
bettingexpert: The Salmon Man
Comes from a yard in form, and has caught the eye on both recent runs at Epsom when particularly strong in the market.
Timeform: The Salmon Man
The Salmon Man is best excused his latest run, and remains of interest, especially given the late withdrawal by Intrude.
BetonBrazil: The Salmon Man
Coming down in class from some good races, so this one should set-up nicely for him to go close.
SBC News: Lady Hare
Might be more of an each-way pick, but looks a decent market price in a wide open finale.
bettingexpert: Cape Spirit
Young claimer ran really well one start back at Haydock, and a repeat of that form will see him go close here on suitably fast ground.
Not one to go overboard with, but he ran out a comfortable winner at Chelmsford last week with the visor back on, and he looks well-in turned out under a penalty if in the same form.
BetonBrazil: Lady Hare
Wide open race. Might get an easy lead and win from the front.
