Pro punters fight back
After a few weeks where tipsters from Australia's racing media have been on top, this time it's the punters who can hold their heads high.
Leading the way with the week's top profit of $3,880 was doctorevil.
This healthy pay packet came after he tipped 15 winners at a phenomenal $11.32 average price.
The absolute standout selection came at Caulfield last Saturday.
Not many punters had the courage to go with rank outsider Graceful Storm in race 6 on Saturday, but doctorevil did.
The Northern Queenslander's analysis paid off in spades when the John Moloney-trained filly flew to victory to pay $74.70.
This effort is typical of what this pro punter has done since first posting his selections back in August 2011. Over the past 6 months alone his highest priced winner paid $114, and with average odds of $9 he has made $11,830 profit for his followers from $100 win bets.

Falling just short in second place was fellow pro punter WAonly1.
As his tipping name suggests and his results confirm, WAonly1 looks to be a bit of a specialist when it comes to Western Australia races.
Over the past 7 days, WAonly1 has tipped winners in Kalgoorlie, Pinjarra, Narrogin, Albany and of course, Ascot.
It looks like he's got just about every WA track covered, so if you're looking for a tip out West, this pro punter looks to be your man.
His tips generated $3,110 in cash profit this time, at a very impressive 63% POT.
And at an average winning price above the $5 mark, WAonly1 had all bases covered.
The best media expert of the week was racing journalist Shayne O'Cass.
O'Cass provides his free tips through Super Racing, and has long been one of their most accomplished tipsters.
In the past 7 days, he tipped no less than 22 winners at a healthy average price of $5.06.
With 44 of O'Cass's tips finding a place over the seven day period, his place strike rate sat above 50%. Those numbers demonstrate just how often his opinion is close to the mark.
Adelaide race caller Terry McAuliffe also had a week to remember.
We've mentioned in this article before that racecallers often make good tipsters. They're not only familiar with the ins and outs of race day, but have to keep a close eye on all the horses as they call the race.
McAuliffe tipped 6 of the 9 winners on the card at Oakbank last Saturday.
This was even more impressive considering that 2 of his Saturday tips were late sctachings which means his first picks that started only missed in one out of seven races.
The SA-based race caller ended the week with more than $2K in profit, and 140% POT.
You can't ask for much better than that.

Finally, tipping icon Deane Lester deserves a wrap for his latest efforts.
Lester found his followers another $1,310 over the past week, at a thumping 69% POT.
The Melbourne guru has long been one of the most well-known and well-respected tipsters in the game.
And with results like this, it's not hard to see why.
