Veterans back on top
After a few weeks where media experts have dominated the standings, the professional punters are starting to get back on top.
This time, it was two of them who surged to the summit of the weekly leaderboard for most profit.
In second place with a cash profit of $2,630, was popular West Australian Sandgroper.
Sandgroper will be very familiar to regular readers of this article, as he has featured in it more times than we care to count.
After a quiet time by his lofty standards in recent months, Sandgroper is back up where he belongs after a superb tipping display in the past seven days.
He steered his followers into 34 winning tips at a healthy average price of $5.63.
These selections included winners in Saturday's metropolitan meets, so for those looking for some Saturday racing tips, Sandgroper might be your man.
However, it was Dragons26 who had the best of it in the past week.
This Pro Punter has also featured regularly in not just Tipster of the Week, but Tipster of the Month columns.
And he's in line to add another to his honour roll after the way he's started the month of May.
Dragons26 tipped just shy of 30 winners, at an average winning price also in excess of the $5 mark.
This generated $3,830 in cash profit for Dragons26, who like Sandgroper will be glad to see himself back at the top of the leaderboard.
Top 10 Horse Racing Tipsters
One of the media tipsters who had a week to write home about was Queensland form analyst Stephen Rodgers.
Rodgers had some standout tip statistics, including 13 winning tips at a strike rate of 50% and 76% POT.
This delivered a profit of $1,980 for those who followed Rodgers' tips with $100 win bets.
And with the form he's been in of late, plenty are sure to jump on his free tips next time.
Rodgers has now had five profitable tipping days in a row and will look to continue that hot-streak with his next selections.
Stephen Rodgers' Tipping streak
The other media expert who had a cracking week was Winning Post's Tony Rickards.
A man of many talents, Rickards can just about do it all and his tipping was on point last week.
His 7 winners at an average price of exactly $5 resulted in a neat $2K profit.
His POT was outstanding, finishing the week on 133%.
This takes Rickards' POT from the past 30 days to 59%, which demonstrates his consistency over an extended period.
There's no doubt that Rickards is one of Australia's in-form media tipsters.
Another media expert who deserves a wrap is SKY Racing's Brisbane race caller David Fowler.
We've said it time and again that race callers are among Australia's best tipsters, and the results continue to back this claim up.
Fowler found $1,620 in cash profit over the past 7 days.
His 9 winning tips saluted at an average price of $5.13, meaning he was another of this week's tipsters who found plenty of value.
He ended up with 54% POT and followers of Fowler will know that this is no flash in the pan, currently showing a enviable 6% POT from his free tips over the past 180 days.
What an effort.
A final mention goes to G1X tipster Rick Morris, who recorded the third highest profit from the past seven days.
This form analyst also falls into the sports broadcaster category, as he calls the NAB league Aussie Rules.
When's he's not watching the young Melbourne footy players run around, he's monitoring the races up in Brisbane, where he's had great success of late.
Morris's five winners in the Sunshine State came at an average winning price of $7.38.
This was largely thanks to his best bet Sofie's Gold Class, that saluted at odds of 20/1 in Race 7 at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
With those odds, you'd be travelling in Gold Class all the way home from the track.
