Saturday's tipster leader board was a who's who from the racing media with a string of well know media tipsters giving punters a flurry of winners from their best bets. The big winners on the day included:
Alf Matthews - SKY Racing
For Alf Matthews Saturday was just another example of the red hot form he has shown over the past 6 months. He tipped Earthquake, Rubick and A Time For Julia on Saturday for 3 wins. Although the first two were odds on, he still managed to bag his followers a tidy 187% profit on turnover. Those encouraged by the two short price picks to take the multi for say $100 got a healthy $1,260 return. Over the past 6 months Matthews has found 26 winners from 61 tips for 22% win profit on turnover proving his weekend win was the result of deep knoweldge of racing.
Mark Hunter is one of the most respected form analysts in the game and with 6 winners and 2 places from the 9 race program at Caulfield on Saturday you can see why. Having delivered massive profit to punters from his Caulfied selections over the past 12 months with a huge 50% win profit on turnover from 45 wins out of his 141 tips posted at the track, it shouldn't have come as a big surprise that he was in for a big day on Saturday.

Another well respected form analyst standing up to be counted on Saturday was Chris Scholtz. Scholtz posted 10 best bets on Saturday, 4 at Newcastle and 3 each at Caulfield and Randwick for 6 wins and 2 placings. His effort for the day landed his followers a big 89% return on turnover. Scholtz's now boasts 31% profit on turnover at Randwick over the past 6 months from 58 tips highlighting the value that expert form analysts bring with their deep knowledge of track conditions and how they impact the running of the race.
