19/2/19 Horse Racing Tipster of the Week

Best punters and media experts of the week

After another exciting week of racing that saw the Autumn Carnival click into gear, it was a punter who piled on the most profit to soar to the top of the weekly leaderboard.

Having entered his horse racing tips since 2012, Fordcat17 is no stranger to and he's now in some of his best career tipping form.

The veteran tipped 31 winners over the past 7 days, at a thumping average winning price of $9.22. This generated a cash profit of $9,490 after all of Fordcat's $100 win bets. 

For those out there who love following a punter who's on a roll, Fordcat17 might just be your man. He has recorded 6 profitable tipping days in-a-row and the hot streak may well continue into this week's races.

Race Tips


Another tipster who is in some cracking form is Chris Blackwell, proving he is the go-to form analyst for West Australian racing. The OzRace  guru appeared in this column last week, where he found his followers almost $7K.

It was much of the same this time round, where you would've pocketed $5,470 in profit if you followed Blackwell's tips with $100 bets.

But even more incredible is if you look at Blackwell's tip results on the Actual Stake leaderboard, where the stake is doubled for best bets.

Here, this astute WA tipping expert recorded no less than $12,340 in profit, at a monster POT of 263%.

While Blackwell bagged a number of winners, the standout was his best bet Utgard Loki, which saluted at $71 in Race 3 at Bunbury last Thursday.

Followers will be hoping that Blackwell can continue his white-hot form for weeks to come.

Race Tips


Two familiar faces also had a cracking week.

Both Turfcutter and Sporty would have to be right up there as the most consistent tipsters in Australia. They came in 4th and 5th place respectively this week for the most cash profit.

Turfcutter added another $3.5K to his life-time profit, which now exceeds the $30K mark. This recent effort came from 49 winning tips at a superb strike rate of 38%.

While Sporty doesn't have the same life-time stats as Turfcutter, he has been without a doubt the best punter in 2019. Incredibly, Sporty has racked up no less than $19,565 from just the past 30 days alone.

This week he added another $2,835 to this total, with 115 winning tips at a strike rate of 35%. 

If following the media tipsters is more up you alley, then you'll be interested to know that Winning Post's Peter Lyne had a belter of a day at Doomben on Saturday.

He picked four of the nine winners on the card, including $17.20 pop Raiden in Race 5.

This left Lyne with $1,750 profit from his Doomben effort, at a stellar POT of 194%.

And finally, one of our resident tipsters Michael Gannon deserves a wrap for his recent tipping.

Gannon cracked the top 10 for most profit with $1,650, at an impressive POT of 69%. 

While some in our office love giving the Sydney form analyst plenty of stick when his tips miss the mark, Gannon has silenced the peanut gallery over the past week and laughed all the way to the bank.
