Going into the final day of the competition, Sky Bet's PR manager Michael Shinners had extended his advantage at the head of the standings, having accrued £1175 over the course of the competition.

Ed Chamberlin, who finished second on £596.67 tried to find the 12/1 winner needed to overtake his rival but sadly drew a blank with his Sunday selection, as did all of the other tipsters.

Sporting Life Editor Dave Ord cemented third spot with £420, while Alex Hammond shot up to a final placing of fourth with a tally of £387.50 after finding the same 4/1 winner as Shinners on Saturday.

Sky Bet have gave the seven competitors £50 each day to bet on any race during the Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival, with any profits added together and shared equally between three charities - New Beginnings, the Injured Jockeys Fund and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

"In total, along with the winnings that Kevin Darley provided with his paddock tips throughout the meeting, we've raised in the region of £6,000 to go to the three charities," said Shinners, who played down his tipping prowess.

"The main thing is that it was a successful and enjoyable week. Oh yes, and that I won.
