Sprinter's Success but the New Kids are in Pursuit

Published: 04/08/2016

For the fourth time in seven months, Sprint Specialiser won the Toptipster monthly crown, finishing July with a mighty 115.75 point haul. They didn’t have it all to themselves, however, as Early Price Profits ran them close, ending the month on a highly commendable 95.56 points.

Newcomers, S G Racing, made in immediate impression, returning a debut-month yield of 53.57 point to earn third place, while Peter James and Saffron Racing also secured July profits.

Since joining Toptipsters in January, Sprint Specialiser have been a revelation. They have claimed profits in every month thus far, with the exception of March. Not surprisingly, the July figure was a personal best, but May’s 102 point yield and the 86.05 point profit in February gave an early indication of the potential of this service. In all, a tally of 443.8 points have been garnered during the first seven months of the year, giving them a clear lead in the 2016 challenge over nearest rivals, EachWay Accas (278.92 points).

Sprint Specialiser’s July return included 16/1 Sugar Town (Redcar, 27 July), 10/1 Sunraider (Doncaster, 21 July) and 10/1 Adam’s Ale (Haydock, 15 July). There were also two 8/1 winners contributing to a 76.66% return on investment (ROI).

Second placed Early Price Profits were similarly rampant unearthing no fewer than 15 winners priced at 12/1 or more. These included 20/1 Baz’s Boy (Ffos Las, 28 July) and 18/1 Spring Steel (Newton Abbot, 25 July) along with seven 16/1 wins and four at 14s.

The newest Toptipster service is SG Racing, who joined on the opening day of Goodwood and ended a glorious week with seven wins from 12 selections for a 58.33% strike-rate and a monster 223.2% ROI. Day one was rewarded with a 100% record with all three selections winning. Two days later the return was two from three including 15/2 Laughton, while Saturday’s highlight was 11/2 Dancing Star, winner of the Steward’s Cup.

Johnny Cavagin’s 14/1 victory at Pontefract on 5 July led the way towards another month of profit for Peter James, the eleventh in 13 months with Toptipsters.

www.SafronRacing.co.uk continued the good work of June with another solid month. Again Goodwood was a source of profit thanks to 9/1 Yalta (27 July), one of three winners from just eight bets at the five-day meeting.

With new talent emerging, Sprint Specialiser and EachWay Accas will need to be at the top of their game in August to maintain their stranglehold on the 2016 Toptipster Challenge
