Best punters & Australian racing media experts revealed
It was much more of the same in February, with the pro punter who dominated in January continuing to rake it in.
Overall, February was a month where the punters got the better of the media tipsters.
Remarkably, there was just one media expert who found the podium across both the most cash profit and highest POT categories.
Read on to find out who that is below.
Highest Cash Profit
It will come as no surprise to those who have been keeping up with our Tipster of the Week articles that Sporty once again is top of the pops.
This former jockey is now enjoying his retirement by raking in the profits for himself and his followers.
Sporty amassed a cash profit in excess of eight grand over the 28 days of February, from an incredible 420 winning tips.
The Gold Coast form analyst is producing these kinds of results time and time again, and is quickly becoming one of the most prolific professional punters in Australia.
The punter who sits at the top of the life-time profit ladder that Sporty is rapidly climbing is Turfcutter.
This legend of the tipping turf claimed the silver medal for most cash profit in February, after accumulating a monster $7,915 cash profit from $100 bets on his tips.
This effort extended Turfcutter's all-time cash profit haul to be over $32k, since he first started entering his tips on our site in 2014.
In February, Turfcutter's eight grand in cash profit was generated from 163 winning tips.
Turfcutter placed 397 tips all month, meaning that he was steering you into a winner at a strike rate of 41%.
That's almost one in every two tips!
The one media tipster to crack the podium is West Australian local and form expert Chris Blackwell.
This proud Sandgroper and OzRace form expert not only mixed it with the pro punters, but beat off the likes of Tony Brassel and Deane Lester for most cash profit.
Blackwell made $7,870 in profit, from 37 winning tips at a meaty average winning price of $5.75.
With a POT of 58%, Blackwell also registered the highest profit on turnover on the most cash profit podium.
What a superb tipping display from the WA specialist.
Highest Profit On Turnover
The pro punter who won the gold medal for highest POT is also a first-time award winner.
Elcocapitan is another who hails from out west, and has only been entering his tips with us since late 2018.
And it hasn't taken long for Elcocapitan to flaunt his tipping skills.
His 85% POT was the highest for February, coming about from 11 wining tips at an average price of $4.70.
Considering he only placed 28 tips for the calendar month, this was a phenomenal effort.
Falling agonizingly short for the highest POT was fellow pro punter Beasey86.
This New South Welshman finished the month with 84% POT, just one percent shy of Elocapitan's total.
Beasey86 made 20 selections in February, 8 of which saluted.
And at an average winning price of $4.60, this really is some white hot racing intel.
Look for Beasey86 to come into March with a fire in his belly, as he guns for gold.
The third placegetter for most POT went to bigrig13, who ended the month with 72% POT.
Like Sporty, bigrig13 is a popular punter who also took out an award in January's tipster of the month article.
