Francisco 'Linky' Mills (Cable Sport Network) and Jimmie (Ainsley Walters) of THE STAR have won bi-monthly prizes in the respective sections of the Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) - sponsored tipsters' competition.

Mills, who won the March-April period in the most wins category, repeated the feat in May-June to cop the $20,000 prize with 48 wins, four clear of IRIE FM (Howard Abrahams) in second.

Jimmie, meanwhile, topped the wagering section with a healthy plus $3,268.80 - the only tipster with a plus quantity. This was due to his nap selections OVATION at 17-1 and INSANE BOLT at 1-1, both of whom won on the June 21 card. He will also receive $20,000.

Meanwhile, The Gleaner (Orville Clarke) leads the overall standing with 142 wins - six clear of Abrahams and nine ahead of Mills in third.

The 15 media tipsters are vying for lucrative prize money, donated by CTL to the overall winners at the end of 2014. Tips appear in The Gleaner on the morning of each raceday.
