22/1/2019 Horse Racing Tipsters of the Week

Most profitable horse racing tipsters of the week

Making the most cash for punters from an even stake over the past 7 days was Sporty.

Earning himself Pro status after weeks and weeks of consistent profits, the ex-jockey made his followers a healthy $3,165 profit from $100 bets over the past seven days.

Now living on the Gold Coast, this sharp punter has retained knowledge from the days when he steered home winners on the race track.

It's no secret to readers of our columns that tipping statistics on our site have proven that jockeys often make great form analysts. Assessing form and judging speed maps are two areas where jockey's skills transfer nicely to become a profitable form analyst.

Sporty managed to tip no less than 63 winners for 21% profit on turnover (POT) over the week. That effort is just typical of what his followers have seen for some time now. With $13k profit racked-up over the past 30 days, the Queensland punter might just be the one to follow in 2019. 

Another regular profit maker at is HoldingAces. This week he added 89% POT to his achievements, translating to $2,750 from $100 win bets.

That effort came off the back of a phenomenal strike rate that saw him almost tip a winner from every second selection.

While HoldingAces often finds himself near the summit of the leaderboard, his recent efforts have been something else. From his past 6 tipping days, 5 of them have ended up profitable, demonstrating the red hot form this pro punter is in.

The standout media tipster this week was Paul Kelly from the Winning Post.

Kelly came in with $2,150 profit, the fifth highest on the leaderboard. However, when comparing staking profits, he was right at the top with $3,220. This result indicates that Kelly nailed a higher percentage of his best bets compared to his other tips. 

Remember, the staking profit is calculated for media experts by doubling the stake on their best bets. Accordingly Kelly's POT soared from 126% to 153%.

These statistics show the value that highlighting best bets has for punters. These tips usually represent the selections they are most confident with, and often the horse that they will actually bet on themselves. 

Another good betting strategy is following the tips posted by race callers, and particularly callers from a specific country region where they have built strong local knowledge about the trainers, race tracks and horses contesting the races. 

With smaller numbers of horses in the regions, these callers can build a heightened understanding of their strengths and weaknesses often resulting in profitable tips.

This was the case in our recent tipster of the year article, where the top three placegetters for POT focussed on a small region within Australia, utlising their local knowledge to their advantage. And this trend was evident once again in the past seven days, with two callers having top weeks.

The first was North Queensland's Tony Wode, who found three winners at Townsville last Thursday at 203% POT. This performance adds to his lifetime profit from more than 700 tips recorded on our site. 

Colin Hodges also excelled. The NSW country caller found 5 winners from the 8-race card at Cowra on Sunday, further demonstrating the value of local knowledge.
