Mark Bowden was one of five PR TipStar - 2019 Ascot Summer and Autumn tipping competition players who placed their Round Six big bet on long-priced Dolores Oberman 90th Birthday Handicap winner Bella's Idol and he accrued sufficient points from the subsequent seven Ascot Racecourse events to pocket the weekly prize, which Perth Racing boosted because of his club membership.
A financial Perth Racing member this season, Bowden received a $350 cheque from Perth Racing and a $250 voucher from Crown Perth after scoring 1,374 points out of a possible 2,152 points in PR TipStar - 2019 Ascot Summer and Autumn Round Six that featured two black type contests. Bowden's racing tips included Forceful, which became the eighth William Pike-ridden galloper to win an Ascot Racecourse finale this term. Backing Pike in the last is a ritual for many punters and fixed odds firms such as TABtouch cop a hammering whenever The Wizard signs off with a victory.
GreyGuns has regained the overall lead in the PR TipStar - 2019 Ascot Summer and Autumn tipping competition from Kingchief. There are 13 rounds remaining, though, so there is still plenty of time to make your presence felt.
