Severn Sport Tipster League 2024 – Meet the Competitors


The Severn Sport Tipster League is back!

For the eighth year in a row, 10 competitors will go head-to-head in a bid to be crowned Severn Sport’s King Tipster(s) for the next 12 months.

Before we meet them, here are the rules:

  • Each day our tipsters will pick three horses in each of the three selected races. They pick a horse to win (Winner), an each way shot (Each-way) and a Reserve. The Reserve takes the place of either the Winner or Each-way in the event of a non-runner or withdrawal.
  • The tipsters score a variety of points depending on how well (or not) their selections do in that race.
  • Each tipster will name a pre-festival antepost tip (this will be worth double points)
  • They will also make a selection for the Gold Cup race on day four (this will also be worth double points)

With that being said, here is how the scoring system works for the Severn Sport Tipster League:

  • If the Winner or Each Way selection wins, the tipster scores 3 points
  • If the Each-Way selection places, the tipster scores 1 point
  • If the Winner wins the race and the Each-Way selection comes second, the tipster scores 5 points
  • If the Each-Way selection wins and the Winner comes second, the tipster scores 4 points
  • However, the tipster will score -2 points for each selection that fails to finish the race (e.g. pulled up, faller, unseated rider etc)
  • If tipsters will receive bonus points if they have big priced winners, with prices of 10/1+ receiving an additional 2 points and prices of 20/1+ receiving an additional 5 points.

Further to the scoring, our tipsters are also armed with three additional boosts they can play once each during the week and can only play one boost per race and they are:

  • 2P – Double Points – the tipster receives double points for their selection.
  • DP – Double Price – the starting price of the tipsters’ selection will be doubled, thus potentially earning bonus points
  • XP – Extra Place – the tipster can pick an additional Each-Way selection in a race.

Right, so now the rules are set – let’s check out this years tipsters and their antepost selections.
