Ready To Jump In 2018 TAB Champion Tipster Title

A field of 25 will do battle on Day 1 of The Championships this Saturday to determine the winner of the prestigious 2018 TAB Champion Tipster and in the process, raise money for charity.

Oaks winner Bonneval (Hugh Bowman) was one of Nick Davis's winning selections last year

Tipsters select a horse in each of the dozen The Championships races over the next two Saturdays at Royal Randwick.

A hypothetical $10 each-way bet will go on each of the 25 selections of the tipsters.

The tipster with the largest balance at the completion of The Championships on Saturday 14 April will be crowned this year’s TAB Champion Tipster, with TAB kindly donating $5000 to the winner’s charity of choice.

Former top Sydney Swan player Nick Davis will be out to retain the title he won last year after returning $677 with winners including Free Standing ($31), Chautauqua ($5.50) and Bonneval ($4.20).
