Cup week has come and gone for another year, but not without two punters piling on the profit.
With an astonishing $26K between them, these familiar faces had a strangle hold on the top of the leaderboard over the past week.
Standing on top of the podium with a whopping $14K in cash profit from $100 win bets was Geelong local Fordcat17.
This Victorian tipped no less than 34 winners in the past week, at a fat average price of $18.04.
As big as his profit was, it could've been so much more with a touch more luck.
That's because no less than 118 of Fordcat17's selections found a place.
The second punter who surged to the top of the leaderboard was veteran tipster at theGreatTipOff.com LuckyStar.
The Queenslander required only 4 winning tips to amass a profit just a whisker under $12K.
You know this punter must've tipped a roughie or two, but they don't get much rougher than Mambazo.
This rank outsider saluted at 145/1 at Bunbury on Cup day, much to the joy of LuckyStar and anyone else who was brave enough to back her.

Mambazo and LuckyStar's 3 other winning tips generated an enormous 352% POT.
A final punter who deserves a mention for his cracking performances of late is Frost1.
This punter is listed as a pro, so you know he's been showing some great consistency.
In fact over the past 90 days, Frost1 has secured $6,900 in cash profit from 86 $100 win bets.
Focusing on the past week and he found another 6 winners, coming at a stellar strike rate of 55%.
These winners resulted in a 292% POT and a cash profit in excess of $3K.
Proving how well this pro is seeing them, he's secured a profit in 8 of his past 9 tipping days.
What an effort.

Onto the media personalities now, and the best of the bunch was none other than Ben Asgari from Racing.com.
The "Persian Prince" had a week to remember, after finding $3,790 in cash profit for his followers who backed his tips with $100 bets.
Asgari tipped 14 winners, but there's no questioning which would've been the sweetest.
Not only was Asgari one of the handful of experts who tipped Vow And Declare in the Melbourne Cup, but he made it his best bet to boot.

Asgari's reputatuion as one of the up and coming stars of the great game will only continue to grow if he keeps producing tips like this.
The next media expert who had a whale of a week was Sydney race caller Darren Flindell.
Flindell simply can't stop tipping winners in and around the Sydney area at the moment.
He had 13 in the last week alone, at a phenomenal strike rate of 50%.
This led to a profit of $2,950 for all of Flindell's followers who backed him in with $100 win bets.
There's sure to be plenty more of those after seeing these results.
Especially considering that Flindell has now tipped a profit in 9 of his previous 10 tipping days.

We knew race callers were good judges of a horse, but this is something else.
