Stuart Tilly has become the latest industry expert to take the Tipster Challenge. The CEO from Argyll Entertainment, the operator behind the new Alan Brazil branded sportsbook BetonBrazil, has provided tips for the six races at Leicester.
BetonBrazil.com features the name, face and voice of ex-Scottish International footballer turned award-winning broadcaster, Alan Brazil, as its brand ambassador. The company has also been shortlisted for the Rising Star in Sports Betting at this week’s SBC Awards.
Tilly will be going up against the consistent sixth placed tipsters from Timeform, and Stephen Harris of bettingexpert, who stayed in eighth place despite collecting just 0.91 points last week at Ffos Las. Harris remains ahead of Dafabet’s John Cruces, Team FA’s Michael Whittle and Unibet’s Ed Nicholson.
bettingexpert: Violets Boy
Shaped well when tenth at Newbury in a very competitive handicap on seasonal/stable debut and can take advantage of a big drop in class.
Timeform: Foundation Man
These were all well beaten on their most recent outing, but at least Foundation Man had excuses and was in good form prior to that.
Argyll Entertainment: Violets Boy
Drop in class from previous effort and ground in his favour.
bettingexpert: Ten Sixty
Very well handicapped and will appreciate the decent ground on his first run in eight months.
Timeform: Ten Sixty
Ten Sixty was upwardly mobile for the bulk of last year, so he’s taken to put a blip behind him following seven months off and make a much better fist of things on just his second try in handicaps.
Argyll Entertainment: Towering
Top yard with top number 2 on board.Looks to have found optimal trip.
bettingexpert: Caprice D’Anglais
Stepped forward when third to the gambled-on Amantius over hurdles last time out, and can make a winning chasing debut against limited rivals.
Timeform: Caprice D’Anglais
Ran his best race yet for current yard when third over hurdles here last week and showed an aptitude for fences when trained in France.
Argyll Entertainment: Unify
Right trip, 7lb drop with jockey good in favour (won off 11.5).
bettingexpert: Generous Helpings
Landed a fair handicap at Huntingdon last time and sets a high standard back in novice class under the penalty, with the good form of the Moore stable a positive.
Timeform: Gray Day
Looked a staying type when considerately handled in a bumper, so it’s worth taking the chance that he can make a successful transition to hurdling faced with a step up in trip and up against some questionable opposition.
Argyll Entertainment: Generous Helpings
Hard to see past him after latest performance. Others are average.
bettingexpert: Moss Street
Stayed up the inner on the worst ground here last week, and is just the type to bounce straight back to form (with drop back to two miles sure to help if ridden positively).
Timeform: Destinys Gold
This is trappy but he did at least come close when second in a Stratford seller on his latest outing, and he receives the narrow vote refitted with cheek-pieces.
Argyll Entertainment: Bohemian Rhapsody
Drop in class and distance should be beneficial for him. Good trainer /jockey combination. And who doesn’t like a sing-along when they have a winner..
bettingexpert: No Ceiling
Can swoop late against two rivals who are both more exposed and lack his turn of foot when the cards fall right.
Timeform: No Ceiling
No Ceiling is now 6lb worse off at the weights with Prince Khurram compared to their meeting at Sedgefield in August, but Ian Williams’ charge is still relatively unexposed as a chaser and may well be up to confirming that form.
Argyll Entertainment: Prince Khurram
Bit of a match bet. Strong stable. Good jockey booking (only ride today).
