Ready To Jump In 2019 TAB Champion Tipster

A field of 25 will do battle on Day 1 of The Championships this Saturday to determine the winner of the prestigious 2019 TAB Champion Tipster and in the process, raise money for charity.

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 goes on each of the selections of the tipsters. The tipster with the largest balance at the completion of The Championships on Saturday 13 April will be crowned this year’s TAB Champion Tipster, with TAB kindly donating $5000 to the winner’s charity of choice.

AAP’s Racing Editor, Caryl Williamson, will be out to retain the title after returning $498 in 2018 with winners including Who Shot Thebarman ($13.70 on TAB), Trapeze Artist ($8.30), Levendi ($5.70) and Happy Clapper ($4.60).
