With so much of the spotlight on the Spring Carnival at this
time of the year it is easy to overlook the top performing tipsters in other
codes of racing. Over the past 12 months the Harness Tipster Leader Board has
been dominated by Cameron, a 31 year old bloke from near Dandenong Victoria
who goes by the name LatemailCamstar.
way you run the numbers on LatemailCamstar he is a proven harness form genius.
Over the past 90 days his harness tips have made $4,264 from $100 bets representing
an amazing 328% profit on turnover with a 38% win strike rate and average odds
of $11.14. That alone is freakish. However, it gets better.
Over the last six months he has registered 92 tips which have landed $100 punters
following him a cool $7,820. That profit came from an incredible 48% win strike
rate which is just shy of a winner every two bets, with an average win price
of $3.83 Best Tote.
For the past 12 months his 98 selections have found 52 winners which represents
a 55% strike rate with average win odds of $3.56 Best Tote. All up he has lined
the pockets of punters following his tips with $8,526 from $100 bets.
LateMailCamstar strictly focuses on harness racing, citing the existence of
too many variables with horse racing and greyhounds. He is a part-time punter
who is challenged with the balance between work and form analysis, which makes
you wonder how much more his profits would be if he was a full time professional
punter. Race selection is a big part of Cameron's betting strategy preferring
to steer away from major race days to focus more on midweek races where there
are easier stand-out selections. When doing the form he is particularly interested
in horses that are drawn to lead or back markers with good speed. His betting
motto speaks of discipline suggesting there is always another day which is particularly
valuable for punters who take bigger risks on any betting day to 'get out'.
On June 2014 LateMailCamstar qualified as a professional harness racing tipster
tipping in profit for 65 consecutive tips and reaching a lifetime profit of
56% win profit on turnover, way over the requisite 25%. His performance has
not gone unnoticed with a steady stream of punters subscribing to his tip alerts
and getting the good oil when he posts his tips.
