Best horse racing tipsters of the week 1 May 2018

Who rounded out April with tipping success?

Just as he saluted when riding Jeune to victory in the 1994 Melbourne Cup, jockey Wayne Harris would have been ecstatic again after posting a flurry of winning tips in the last seven days. Picking 5 winners at odds averaging $4.60 demonstrates that Harris's racing mind is as sharp as ever.

Following ex-jockeys has been a good ploy in recent times, with David Taggart also picking winner after winner two weeks ago and John Scorse finding 5 winners for 101% profit on turnover (POT) over the past week. Studying the form is part and parcel of a jockey's profession, as they need to decide on their race tactics not only by knowing their own mount, but by understanding the racing patterns of rival horses in the field. It's therefore no surprise to see Australia's top exjockeys ranking among the best form analysts in the country.

Astute Pro Punter from Footscray DagPrez13 demonstrated why he has Professional Tipster status. Like the Western Bulldogs in the AFL who also hail from Footscray, DagPrez13 had a winning week, picking 6 winners at an average price of $7.55. If you had bet $100 on each of his tips, you would have been collecting a hefty profit of $3,130. Not bad at all for a week's work in the Western suburbs of Melbourne.     

The Punter with the best profit win percentage of the week was Ronniehanks, who recorded a massive 352.5% POT. With average win and place odds of $18.10 and $3.67 respectively, you know that he was going for the value. And it certainly paid off.

But it was Carl dilorio from Best Bets who led the leaderboard for the week in terms of win POT. Finding 2 winners from 2 best bets, Carl was clinical. And at an average win price of $6.35, that is nothing to be scoffed at.
