Jessica Bridge from Ladbrokes has signed up to become the last Tipster Challenge guest and the final obstacle to repeat success for OneBet’s Sarah Shannon.
Part of the PR team at Ladbrokes, Bridge has made live or recorded broadcasts across every major UK television and radio platform, including BBC News, ITV, Channel 4, Sky News, Sky Sports News, CNN, CNBC, BBC Radio 5 Live and talkSPORT.
She will be hoping that Kaaba Stone gives her a winning start as ‘Nap of the Day’, while bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris has predicted an ‘Awesome’ opening to the day’s seven-race card at Chepstow.
bettingexpert: Awesome (Nap of the Day)
Has shaped well on her last two starts and can take advantage of a drop in class.
Ladbrokes: Kaaba Stone (Nap of the Day)
Expensive breeze up purchase was very green on debut but shaped with distinct promise by the finish. Looks sure to improve off that effort and go close in what looks a winnable race.
Makes his handicap debut from a fair mark and his stable enjoyed a welcome winner yesterday.
Lost his way a bit late last year having looked promising early. Got back on track in a C&D handicap on his latest start so feels very solid today under almost identical conditions.
The clear form choice and is confidently expected to see off his only two serious rivals.
This effectively looks like a match between Majboor and Katheefa. Majboor has shaped well in two good maidens at Salisbury and basically looks a better horse than his market rival so is a strong fancy.
Has been progressing well until finishing seventh last time and is taken to bounce back to his best here.
Impressive when two back at Newmarket and again shaped well in a hot race at York’s Ebor meeting on his latest start. This looks slightly easier so looks a decent bet on ground that will suit.
bettingexpert: Bonjour Steve
A very smooth traveller (with a quirk or two off the bridle) who has been hinting that his turn was near in recent runs.
Ladbrokes: John Joiner
Not the sexiest race we’ve ever seen if truth be told, but John Joiner has shown improvement on last two starts, going close, so fancy him to do the business today.
Gets weight all round in a weak race and comes from a small yard in excellent form.
Ladbrokes: Priors Brook
Has C&D form and looks slightly better handicapped than the jolly Seven Clans.
Capable of improving after just five career runs and has the assistance of a very talented claimer.
Another Balding running fancied, just denied on his handicap debut but I’m keeping the faith to go well today.
