Royal Strata and Lucy Warwick upstaged New Age and William Pike in the last Ascot Racecourse race on Saturday 27 April
Two relatively uneventful rounds means Keatsy11 leads the PR TipStar - 2019 Ascot Summer and Autumn tipping competition race by nearly 1,000 points with three meetings remaining before Perth Racing hands out the overall prizes.
Fewer than 2,500 points were up for grabs in Rounds 15 and 16 of the PR TipStar - 2019 Ascot Summer and Autumn tipping competition because favourites dominated the Ascot Racecourse meetings on both Anzac Day and Saturday 27 April - only one winner across the two cards, William Pike-ridden Diplomat Express, paid higher than 10.00 on the tote with TABtouch.
Paul O'Brien, whose PR TipStar - 2019 Ascot Summer and Autumn tipping competition alias is Pro086, won Round 15 on Anzac Day when he picked seven of the eight winners and placed his best bet on the omen runner of the meeting, Flower Of War.
Round 16 of the 2019 Ascot Summer and Autumn tipping competition went the way of Lance Hinds, also known as Hindsy. Hinds was indebted to Royal Strata, which won the final race on Saturday 27 April to catapult him to the top of the leaderboard. Forget about Pike in the last, it was Lucy Warwick in the last.
