Wet tracks- big profits and plenty of roughies
Punting on the horses is not easy at the best of times. When the track is wet
it makes it a lot harder. Lets take Rosehill on Saturday for example. Winners
seemed to come down the middle of the track at the start of the day however
by the time the Golden Slipper was run it appeared that the
rails was the way to go. Mossfun must have cut 5 lengths of
his turn into the straight compared to the rest of the field, making up for
a sluggish start to the race which found him at the back of the field. He seemed
to make even more ground on the field as his run continued in the straight with
out any apparent bias against him. Apparently it was the Pumper himself who
guided young jockey James McDonald to take the inside running
however it needed to right on the rail according to Cassidy. The poor old punter
who spent the night before doing their speed maps for the race would have been
wondering why they even bothered after they past the post regardless of who
they had their money on.
With the rain setting in for pretty much the entire week it's a wonder that
punters managed to find enough winners to post a descent profit at all. We can
however report that this week's Top 10 profit makers includes its fair share
of big cash winners, seven of whom are punters and with three from the media.
We are not revealing the top profit maker just yet. You will hear more about
him shortly. All we can disclose today is that he is a punter and you are unlikely
to be surprised when you learn who it is.
Runner up, Formulator, posted 62 tips for the week, that's
almost an average of nine tips a day. He found six winners for a very low 9%
strike rate however managed to finish the week with 109% profit on turnover.
How did he do it? He found enough winners at big odds. To give you an idea how
good those winning odds were, the average price of his six winners was $11.30.
He had the equal highest winning odds of the week, Hey Shazam
paying $74.10 best tote at Gosford. He also had the sixth and
seventh highest priced winners for the week, Miss Carobose
at Sale paying $24.30 and Changing Notes at
Saphire Coast paying $23.10. Formulator is
also showing strong profitability over the last 30 days with 36 winners for
35% win profit on turnover. He has forty years experience as a form analyst
and has developed a racing betting system that he applies to thoroughbred and
greyhound racing for races in Australia and the United Kingdom.
The three media Top 10 tipsters included Nathan Exelby from
the Courier Mail with three wins from eight tips on Saturday
for a cracking 215% win profit, Deane Lester who found 14 winners
from 32 selections giving $100 win bet punters a tidy $1,560 cash profit, and
Joel Marshal from Racing Network finding three
winners from three best bets on Saturday for $1,560 profit.
Thirty five percent of the tipsters posting their selections at theGreatTipOff.com
last week made a profit. The aggregated performance of all tips posted was about
on par with what the betting markets are typically set at with punters receiving
an average return of 92.1% on investment.
