Without doubt one of the most respected tipsters in the country, Tony Brassel turned it on in the past seven days, coming in second on our weekly leaderboard for most profit. Followers of Brassel's tips enjoyed an incredible $5,640 in cold hard cash from $100 win bets, further cementing his status as a tipping legend amongst Australian punters.
Most would be familiar with Brassel on Sky Racing's race-day television coverage where he provides his tips, commentary and late mail. Rumour has it the Brassel is in lock down days before a Saturday meet to get through the miles of form required to prepare for his race day comments across the four major metropolitan meetings.
Followers of Brassel's tips at Rosehill last Saturday got more than the usual burst or winners and insightful commentary. Bras was in dazzling hot form tipping the winner in races 1 through 7 at Rosehill Gardens.
If you had enough foresight to chuck Brassel's first seven selections in a multi, the odds would've been a staggering $95,352!
At the same time as his Rosehill tips were flying, Brassel was also tipping up a storm at Caulfield. In fact, Brassel tipped 15 winners from the four main metropolitan meets on Saturday, for a POT well in excess of 100%.
The ability to analyse the form for all four major metropolitan meets each and every Saturday is an achievement in itself. Tipping 15 winners on the day is next level, demonstrating what a tipping maestro Tony Brassel really is.
Plenty are sure to tune in to Sky's coverage as the spring carnival kicks up a gear in the coming weeks.
Another Tony that dazzled over the past week is a man who is no stranger to the glitz of showbiz and performing on the big stage. Tony Rickards is a hilarious as well as accomplished comedian/actor/writer, who is currently one of the star contributors to popular and legendary racing mag, Winning Post.
But don't let Rickards comedic talents fool you. He is no mug when it comes to tipping a horse. Rickards earned his followers $1,650 in profit over the past week, at a whopping 183% POT.
The highlight of Rickards' tips was the Charlie Appleby-trained raider Jungle Cat, that clawed its way to victory in the Group One Sir Rupert Clark Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday. With a smattering of other winners, Rickards' winning strike rate sat at a hugely impressive 62%. There's no doubt that Rickard's Melbourne tips will be hot property as spring racing continues to heat up.
But the star of the week was none other than professional punter LuckyStar.
This is the second consecutive week LuckyStar has appeared in this column, last week racking up just shy of ten grand of profit for his followers. LuckyStar surpassed even that effort this week, making $10,965 in profit over the past seven days.
That's right. Almost eleven grand. In just seven days.
This is down to LuckyStar's method of going for the value selections, a formula that is proving successful. He somehow steered punters into the 100/1 pop Dangerous Breeding in Race 8 at Canberra last Friday. It's winning tips like these that see LuckyStar's average winning price exceed the ten dollar mark, as it did once again this week.
Over the past fortnight, followers of LuckyStar's tips with $100 win bets would've seen upwards of twenty grand in profit materialize in their bookmaker accounts. Nice going for his army of followers.
