25/6/19 Horse Racing Tipster of the week

Hunter fires straight as media experts salute

The media experts really hit their straps over the past seven days, with plenty of familiar faces finding themselves high up on the leaderboard for most cash profit.

However, it was a well-known pro punter who led the way.

That was Dragons26, who secured just shy of $5K in profit from $100 bets.

This Sutherland Shire local has all the credentials backing his pro status.

He's won multiple awards, including a back-to-back tipster of the month trophy in March and April of 2018.

This week, he steered his followers into some cracking winners.

Dragons26 found 26 of them in all, in a happy coincidence for this pro punter.

Dragons26 notched up 26 winners for the week


These 26 winners came at a meaty average price of $6.23 and a cracking 23% strike rate, especially considering he entered over a 100 tips.

With form like this, plenty will be considering this punter's tips in the coming weeks.

The next highest profit on the weekly leaderboard came from ex-AFL player and now expert tipster Mark Hunter.

Incredibly, Hunter is sitting on 8% POT over the past 365 days.

Mark Hunter's 365 day tip stats


This stat alone puts him right up there amongst Australia's elite professional punters and media experts.

In the past week, Hunter secured $3,780 for those who followed his tips with $100 bets.

This generated a thumping 236% POT for followers of Mark's Saturday Tip Package.

The standout selection from Hunter was Pop Queen, who saluted at huge odds of $32.

This was one of Hunter's five winners at Flemington last Saturday.

You'll be hard-pressed to find Saturday racing tips better than this.

Speaking of standout Saturday racing tips, Racenet's Laurie Sainsbury deserves a wrap for his latest effort.

He gave his followers a gem of a tip, also at Flemington.

It was Romancer, who greeted the judge at ripping odds of $28.30 in the last.

Laurie Sainsbury's "get out" special


This helped Laurie generate a cash profit of $2,920 for the week.

Those who reckon that this must be a fluke, think again.

Sainsbury is now sitting on a 107% POT over the past 180 days, proving that he's got consistency on his side.

The next media expert who had a whale of a week was David Taggart from G1X.

Most would know Taggart from his jockey days, where his brilliant career was cut short by a horror fall.

Ex-jockeys tend to make excellent form analysts, and Taggart is no exception.

His ten winners at an average price of $6.06 generated no less than $2,260 in cash profit.

But, adjust the settings on the leaderboard to "actual stake", and Taggart's profit almost doubles.

That's because plenty of his best bets were getting home.

In last week's tipster of the week article, it was the Daily Telegraph's Ray Thomas who got a mention.

This time it was Simon Thomas who flew the flag high for the Telly.

He found 25 winners, which meant more than $2K in profit for all those who backed his tips with $100 bets.

And just like Taggart, plenty of Thomas's best bets were saluting.

On the actual stake leaderboard, Thomas's profit sits at a very healthy $3,360.

You can bet that plenty will take a punt on his free tips this week.
