Respected Racing journalist & veteran punter excel
It's not often that greyhounds get mentioned in this article, but this week is a special case. That's because former NSW Greyhound Racing Board member and Fairfax editor Peter Davis, whose SMH articles were instrumental in preserving the NSW greyhound industry, proved that his judgement extends beyond the dogs to include horses too.
With an astonishing 8 profitable days from his last 10, Davis' tips have earnt punters $1,870 from $100 win bets, representing 81% profit on turnover (POT).
However, even better than this was if you doubled-up on Davis' best bets, as we show for his staking plan on theGreatTipOff.com, you received a very tasty $3,380 profit over the last seven days. And at an average winning price of $5.21, nobody could accuse Davis of just going for the favs.
What makes Davis's efforts even more notable is the fact that he's a newspaper tipster. To meet Sydney Morning Herald deadlines, Davis needs to get his tips in days in advance, limiting his access to race-day knowledge.
The stand-out performance from the punters this week came from veteran Melbournian, Danzak.
With a huge weekly profit of more than seven grand, the sixty-nine year old demonstrated what a lifetime of racing knowledge gets you. The average winning price of Danzak's 25 winners was a whopping $15.48.
These kind of results are no fluke, with Danzac backing up his May performance where he was awarded Horse Racing Tipster of the Month after making another seven thousand in profit.
Brad Davidson from the Daily Telegraph and Super Racing deserves a mention for his big day at Warwick Farm last Wednesday. He tipped no less than 5 of the 7 winners on the card, earning anyone smart enough to follow his tips a huge 279% POT.
Finally, Priscilla Schmidt was the undoubted Queen of the Punt in the Grafton July Carnival this week. Over the three race days, Schmidt tipped 8 winners for 62% POT. The popular ex-hoop earnt punters one and a half grand from $100 win bets, demonstrating once again the value of trusting the intimate knowledge that jockeys are privy to when it comes to horse racing.
