Horse Racing tipster of the week
It was an unusual week in the world of horse racing, with the roughies getting up left, right and centre.
While this meant a bloodbath for favourite punters, everyone who got a hold of the value that was up for grabs made big inroads.
This is clear on the seven-day horse racing leaderboard, where the top ten profit-makers owed their success to tipping winners at a massive average price.
Best horse racing tipsters for the week
Faring best was Sydneysider Methoman, who cleaned up on Saturday's Randwick card.
The punter nabbed 4 winners, including Lion's Roar in the Randwick Guineas at $26 odds, as well as $17 pop Glistening in the Reisling Stakes.
All up, Methoman's 4 winning tips greeted the judge at a mammoth average price of $15.32, driving an outrageous 261% Profit on Turnover (POT).
While this was clearly his best weekly performance in some time, Methoman is also showing some cracking consistency at Sydney's premier track.
His tips have now yielded $3,530 in cash profit at Randwick over the past 30 days from $100 win bets.
His next Sydney selections are sure to be popular.
Also snaring some of Saturday's juicy value was none other than Tony Rickards from the Winning Post.
The multi-talented racing writer and form judge has a history of steering his followers into a roughie or two.
This week he did that on the biggest stage, not only bagging $26 pop Homesman in the Australian Cup, but making it his best bet to boot.

Along with another 5 winners across Flemington and Cranbourne, Rickards clocked off with a mind-bending 312% POT under actual stake conditions.
Punters who followed his tips with $100 bets and doubled up on his best bets also ended up with a ridiculous cash profit of $6,530.
This performance shouldn't come as a surprise, given that Rickards is boasting a 4-month profit streak at Flemington.
He's clearly one of the main reasons punters keep coming back to Winning Post

One of our resident form analysts Josh Reed also proved he's no stranger to snapping up the rough stuff.
Like Rickards, Reed did his best work in the feature races, bagging 3 of the day's 4 Group One winners.
They included Zoutori and Lion's Roar, both of which started in excess of the $20 mark.

Looking at his 7-day stats, and Reed jagged 6 winners at a strike rate of 25% and a bumper average price of $9.68.
This drove a fat 142% POT for his followers.
Another horse racing tipster to make a splash was Racing NSW's Brad Gray.
While Gray is usually doing his damage at the Saturday metro meets, this time it was out at Tamworth on Sunday where he performed.
Gray bagged 3 of the day's winners, including $23 hope Everluck and the $8 victor of the Country Championships qualifier, Spiranac.
Gray's 3 winning tips at a monster $11.27 average price generated a 99% POT for the week.
Not bad at all.
We can't round off our best horse racing tipsters of the week without mentioning the feats of Dylan Bairstow on Saturday.
The popular Sky Racing tipster pulled off the equivalent of a hole in one, after he tipped the card at Alice Springs on Saturday.
It was a tipping masterclass from the West Australian, whose 5 winners included $5.10 winner Schillertin in Race 4.
Talk about giving the bookies a touch up!

Harness and Greyhound tipsters of the week
Kicking off with the trots and it was RSN's Craig Rail who had the best of it.
The Victorian race caller dished up a 106% POT for his followers, and like the horse racing tipsters, this was thanks to some value tipping.
Rail nabbed 2 winners from 9 selections at a fat average price of $9.25.
But as well as being able to bag a roughie or two, Rail has long been one of Australia's most consistent harness tipsters.
In fact, he's currently showing $30K in cash profit from from 6,200 place bets since his tips were recorded on the site.
Craig Rail's impressive career tipping stats
Turning to the greyhound leaderboard, and it was pro punter Philip Markou who topped the lot.
He finished up with an impressive 82% POT after finding 7 winners at a strike rate of 41% and an average price of $4.41.
But it's this Sydneysider's extended stats that are really something to shout about.
Markou is not only boasting a 6-week winning streak, but he's also profited in each of the previous 5 months on the bounce.
