El Cap proves the perfect Nap for bettingexpert at Thirsk

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained El Cap (4-1) proved to be the correct Nap of the Day for bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris in the Tipster Challenge at Thirsk.

Harris and Alexman, a hot horse racing tipster from the OLBG sports betting community, shared the same two victories across the eight-race meet.

However, while a win for El Cap cemented Harris’ place in second with a 10.07 average, OLBG could only squeeze into the top three with a 5.10-point total.

Race Winners at Thirsk:

  1. Trusting Friend 8/1
  2. Rockies Spirit 3/1
  3. Give Em A Clump 11/10
  4. Sir Billy Wright 6/1
  5. Mango Chutney 7/2
  6. Original Choice 5/4
  7. El Cap 4/1
  8. Questo 4/1
