Ciaran O'Brian-3195(1)_resizedCiaran O’Brien, Communications Director at William Hill, made a great start on his Tipster Challenge appearance at Chepstow, but failed to build on victories from each of the first three races.

O’Brien’s hat-trick of wins amounted to 5.29 points, which was 3.66 more than both Timeform and Stephen Harris, the horse racing Guru at bettingexpert. Both of our regular tipsters only collected the 1.63 points from Verygoodverygood’s impressive victory in the race at 1:55.

This means O’Brien is added to the latest leaderboard in third place, with Timeform and bettingexpert dropping a place to sixth and eighth respectively. Alan Alger, PR Manager for Betway, held on to top spot for the fourth week running.
