Tipsters fail to find the long odds winners at Hereford

It was a difficult day for our experts in the Tipster Challenge at Hereford, as only Stephen Harris of bettingexpert collected more than 2.00 points.

He pulled off the longest odds success of the day on Keeper Hill (9/4), to add to his victory in the 1:55 on the favourite, Charmix (5/4). All three correctly predicted a win for the impressive Strong Pursuit (4/9), which turned out to be the sole success for seventh placed Timeform.

Harris improved his weekly average to 2.58 points to consolidate in 10th place, whilst Stephen Power, known on Twitter as the @racingblogger, collected a 1.69-point total to land in 12th place.

Race Winners at Hereford:

  1. Late Shipment 5/1
  2. Verdana Blue 7/2
  3. Charmix 5/4
  4. Lake Chapala 6/1
  5. Keeper Hill 9/4
