Riccardo1966 has begun 2014 with a bang, finding the 33/1 winner, Rockabilly Riot, on the third day of January to move top of the Sporting Life Monthly Tipsters Competition.

Mustangsally and Turfmen lead the chasing pack, while John.Mountford30 and Norrie10 have both been prolific in finding winners early on in the New Year and each boast tip success rates of over 60% for first 10 days of January.

Baracuda, Oldgirl, Edwinkett, Fryertuck, Jonnyscottish, Strider1 and Gerintnak have all tasted success in the Daily Game over the past week, landing the Daily Sky Bet Free Bet prize, while Kaisermc has found an incredible 17 winners from 35 picks so far this month (just under 50% success rate).

Cyrus1971 is in red hot form at the moment, with winning naps in each of the last three days (7/1, 7/2 and 11/4) and definitely looks a tipster to follow over the weekend.
