2009 Champion Tipster Competition
Jasper had a good old try but his selection failed to deliver - though a fifth place at 25/1 was certainly a valiant effort. So there it is - Lucy is officially crown World Wide Wilkes Champion Tipster 2009. Congratulations to her. This is the second time she has won the competition - and she has been second once too - showing she really has a talent for this game. A gnat's whisker seperated Simon and Luke in second and third respectively. Here are the usual stats:
LARGEST SINGLE WIN
Another interesting fact is that if each player had had a £5 each-way bet on their selections throughout the season Lucy would have won £64 while Vicky would have lost £91.20. And if you were to have put the same bet on all of the players selections each week you would be £304.34 worse off now. Which all goes to prove, once again, that it is better to head the bank, rather than the betting shop, with your money - even with the credit crunch.
Lucy: 14/1 returning 19.5 points.
Julie: 3 wins and 3 places, a 46% strike rate. Lucy and Tony also had six returns, but fewer wins.
MOST STRAIGHT WINS
Julie and Luke: 3
Vicky - but at least it's not golden this year.
Well done to Lucy. Thank you to every one for taking part. Hope to see you all again next year. E-mail me if you would like to take part.
