5/3/19 Horse Racing Tipster of the Week

Best Bets fly high in top week for media experts

For all the horse racing tragics out there who stock up on a Best Bets magazine every week, last Saturday was one to savour.

That's because two members of the Best Bets team were on fire and consequently found themselves in the weekly top 10 for most profit.

Top 10 tipsters for the week


The standout was Joel Marshall, who found $3,544 in cash profit for punters who followed his racing tips with $100 bets.

Marshall is a respected and popular horse racing journalist, who has been with Best Bets since 2013.

His reputation has only grown of late, becoming the go-to tipster for Saturday's main racing meets.

Last Saturday, he steered punters into 10/1 shots Goathland and Fifty Stars, as well as bagging a couple of good winners around the $7 mark.

He finished the day and week with a juicy 154% Profit on Turnover (POT) meaning that for every dollar wagered, Marshall's tips generated a return of $1.54.

With form like this, Marshall looks to be one of the tipsters to turn to for the big upcoming Saturday meets. 

The other tipster who flew the flag high for Best Bets was Daniel Nuttall.

This up-and-comer found $1,264 in cash profit for those who backed his tips in with $100 bets. 

With 17 winners across the weekend at an average winning price just shy of $4, Nuttall is tipping with all the precision of a veteran form analyst.

As good as this Best Bets duo were, their combined effort wasn't enough to catch popular pro punter Rowdylegend.

This proud Shepparton local picked up a whopping $7,150 from his week's effort, taking him to the summit of the leaderboard for most profit.

Value was the order of the day for Rowdylegend, whose 10 winning tips came at an average winning price of $12.25, resulting in 140% POT.

The highlight tip came at Swan Hill last Friday, where Rowdylegend picked out Lightning Rider in Race 4, saluting at $70.

That effort made it 5 winning days from his past 8.

While he didn't reap quite as much cash profit, Matt Buckland also put his hand up as a candidate for tipster of the week.

Buckland is one of our resident tipsters, specialising in the major metropolitan meets in both Melbourne and Sydney.

And it was here that Buckland tipped with near perfection. From his 11 selections across Flemington and Randwick last Saturday, Buckland tipped 7 winners at a healthy average winning price of $4.38.

This resulted in a monster POT of 179% for Buckland, who also found just shy of $2K in profit for his followers.

A final mention goes to Racing.com journo Grace Ramage.

Ramage has been tipping sharply over the past 30 days, generating a cash profit just shy of $3K over the past 30 days.

Considering she only provides her tips for the major Melbourne meet each Saturday, this is a superb return.

Ramage added to this total at Flemington on the weekend, finding another $1,160 for her followers. But if you look at the weekly leaderboard under actual stake, Ramage's profit rises up above $2K.

This was thanks to her best bets Violate and She's So High, who both greeted the judge. Ramage tipped 4 winners in all, at an average price in excess of the $5 mark.

With another big meet at Flemington this Saturday, Ramage is ready to continue her fine form.
