Media tipsters top the list again
After backing up last week's impressive comeback by the media experts over the punters, they have gone on with it this week, putting regular and professional punters to shame.
With 7 media tipsters inside the top 10 for profit on turnover (POT), the journos, racecallers and form analysts rounded out the financial year with a handy bonus for punters following their tips.
While both RSN and Racenet impressed with two tipsters inside the top 10, it was UBET racecaller Terry McAuliffe who had the best week. McAuliffe not only secured more than three grand in profit from $100 win bets on his selections, but achieved this feat with a cracking 211% POT.
The key to this high profit return was the value that McAuliffe managed to find. His 7 winners from only 15 tips were first past the post with a tasty average winning price of $6.67. The 3 profitable winning days from his past 4 will certainly numb McAuliffe's pain from his beloved Carlton Blue's disasterous season this year.
Another of the standout performances came from Racenet's Laurie Sainsbury, who despite picking only two winners, found them at big prices. With average winning odds of $16.95, the highlight came in Race 2 at Caulfield on Saturday, where the unfancied Haripour got home at big odds of $25.80. Another typical Sainsbury effort, prospecting and finding the diamonds in the rough.
The reason for Sainsbury's mention extends beyond his effort this week. That was just one of 5 profitable tipping days from his last 9, proving he is certainly one to follow for punters looking for value in their form guide.
Another racecaller picking winners for fun this week was Adam Crettenden from RSN Racing. 'Cretters' as he is better known amongst his racing colleagues, found 5 winners from 10 tips at average odds of $7.34. Another tipster delivering for the value punters.
The Punters weren't totally disgraced this week, with multiple Tipster of the Month award winner LuckyStar flying the flag after finding a massive $3,390 in profit from $100 win bets from only 5 wins. As you would expect his average winning price was huge, averaging $11.
These punters and tipsters together with all of Australia's racing media experts, professional punters and the rest can be found in the horse racing tips market.
