PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition entrant David Willey was almost as happy as Shaun McGruddy that Durendal won the Hosemasters-Colonel Reeves Stakes
After the completion of Round Six in the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition there is a new contender for the overall title.
Browndoggy is the rising star of the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition and he scored in all bar one of the eight races at Ascot on Champion Fillies Day to rack up 835 points. That scored rewarded Browndoggy with a top-10 finish on the day but, more importantly, hurtled him way up the overall leaderboard into third place, just one big score away from the leader.
Unlike last week, consistency was the order of Champion Fillies Day with two PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition players in the Round Six top 10 scoring in all bar one race and three others missing a score in only two races. The weekly winner, David Willey (davidwill), not only managed to score in seven of the eight races on the Champion Fillies Day card but also landed a tasty big bet on Durendal in the Hosemasters-Colonel Reeves Stakes, which paid 7.40 win and 3.10 place with TABtouch. His $50 each-way big bet added a handy 525 points to help him towards his winning score of 966.60 points.
Punters are certainly starting to understand the power of the each-way bet in the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition. Five competitors who finished in the top 10 on Champion Fillies Day had Kimbo's Girl in the Amelia Park Lodge Handicap and they collected 6.30 points for each virtual dollar placed on the Simon Miller-trained mare. The winner of that race, Spillinova, only returned 4.20 for a buck each-way investment. As the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition continues those punters further down the leaderboard will be looking for these types of opportunities to help themselves catapult up the ladder.
The tipsters from Perth's racing media registered some notable PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival Round Six performances, too. At the top of the tree was Winning Post expert BJ Ryan. Ryan found four winners from his Ascot tips, including his best bet scoring 423 points and bagging a tidy 11 per cent profit on turnover. Mark Worwood, of Perth Racing, finished just three points behind Ryan with another good effort.
Round Seven of the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition is on Saturday 24 November, also known as Kirin Railway Stakes Day. With so many great prizes up for grabs, it is not too late to register and join the fun.
