The countdown to the Cup is well and truly on, with the racing season about to reach its climax.
And peaking at just the right time of the year is fan favourite Sandgroper.
This proud West Australian surged to the top of the leaderboard for most cash profit after finding a whopping 44 winners over the past week.
These winning tips came at a thumping average price of $6.67.
You know that the profit is going to be big with numbers like this.
And it was. If you'd followed each of Sandgroper's tips with $100 win bets, you would have reeled in a cash profit of $6,440.
Not bad at all for a week's work.
Securing the silver for most profit last week was pro punter CMan1995.
This young pro put in an accomplished display of tipping, finding 20 winners at an average price of $6.20.
At a strike rate of 31% and a hugely impressive 91% POT, CMan1995 had all bases covered.
Go further back, and you'll see that this pro's tips have been on fire for some time now.
Not only has he secured a profit from 5 out of his previous 6 tipping days, but he's sitting on $6,940 of profit from $100 win bets over the past month.
CMan1995's impressive form
Plenty of punters will be wanting to know what this pro is tipping this week.
Onto the media experts now and there was a well-known form analyst who tipped with near-perfect precision.
We're talking of Mick Sharkie, who earnt his followers no less than $3K in cash profit over the past seven days.
This was despite providing just three tips at the Valley on Saturday.
Not only did he tip the Cox Plate winner Lys Gracieux, but he managed to nab the 30/1 outsider Chief Ironside in Race 8 on the card.
Mick Sharkie cleans up on Cox Plate day
This great display of tipping is reflected in Sharkie's POT, which sits at a mammoth 1,010%.
But don't be fooled into thinking that this was a one-off fluke.
Sharkie is currently sitting on 125% POT and a cash profit of $4,750 from all of his tips over the past 90 days.
What an effort.
Next up is Simon Thomas from the Daily Telegraph, who showed why he's one of the most respected form analysts in the game.
Thomas tipped 17 winners over the past week, at a stellar strike rate of 36%.
In other words, Thomas was steering his followers into a winner in at least every third race.
If punters had lobbed $100 on all of Thomas's free racing tips, they would've walked away with a profit of $2,590.
This Telly tipster is another who's definitely peaking at the right time.
In fact, he's found a profit in 7 out of his previous 10 tipping days.
Simon Thomas is seeing them well
The final mention of this week's column goes to Matt Hill, and not for his quality race calling.
Hill found $2,350 in cash profit at a monster 138% POT.
This came about after he tipped 5 winners at a meaty average price of $8.10.
The voice of Melbourne racing, Hill has proved once again why race callers make for some of the best tipsters in the game.
