Backing William Pike aboard Neurological in the last paid off for PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival Round 11 winner Rob Crerar
Round 11 of the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition went down to the wire and Rob Crerar's decision to back William Pike in the last race, the TABtouch - Better Your Bet Handicap, saw him leapfrog two tippers and take out the weekly prize of a $500 cheque and a $500 Crown Perth voucher.
Crerar, whose PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition alias is rcrerar, trailed Beenybejannim and PossumHunter with one race left on the eight-race Ted van Heemst Stakes Day program at Ascot Racecourse but his selection, Neurological, won at TABtouch win odds of 8.90 and place odds of 2.90, whereas Harry Thomas was unplaced for Beenybejannim and Moet De Vega missed the top three for PossumHunter. Crerar picked six of the eight winners on Ted van Heemst Stakes Day and he had his big bet on Let's Twist.
There are two rounds to go in the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition and, unless a massive roughie or two gets up between now and the conclusion of TABtouch Perth Cup Day on Saturday 5 January at Ascot Racecourse, it would seem the overall prizes for first, second and third are likely to be fought out by the top 10 on the leaderboard as it stands currently.
Round 12 of the PR TipStar - 2018 Ascot Racing Carnival tipping competition is on Saturday 29 December, also known as ATA Stakes Day. With such great weekly prizes up for grabs, it is not too late to register and join the fun. Remember, it is free to play and it takes only a couple of minutes to sign up on either mobile or desktop.
