In the midst of the off season carnivals with the mildly interesting winter races approaching, a handful of pro tipsters are shining brighter than the southern cross in the desert on a clear night. The Top 5 of the one month win profit leader board displays some phenomenal performances from a mix of legends and less known tipsters.
Deane Lester tops the list with a massive 165% win profit. Like a sharp shooter, Lester has been picking them off, week after week, with an incredible win strike rate of 58% and a place strike rate of 75%. In addition to these statistics he has maintained a very healthy average win price of $4.54.
The Ace Tip comes in second on the list with a win profit of 136%. The Ace's one tip a week means his monthly statistics come from 5 tips. Small volume with a massive $11.80 average price. Typical of The Ace's style which sees him in the all time Top 10 - winners a little apart, but pay day makes up for the wait.
Darren Reddan, at third on 134% win profit, has literally sprung out from the ground. Reddan has landed only four winners out of 18 tips over the month. The shining statistic responsible for his rise, however, is his amazing average price of $10.55.
Mister consistency, Michael Sharkie, who boasts the longest run of consecutive tips in profit at 119, surges again. His 15 tips over the month have yielded 123% win profit for his followers at theLastWordRacing.com.au from 7 wins and 10 placings.
Whips Are Cracking, from WhipsAreCracking.com.au continues one of the longest and most significant moves up the leader board in its 12 month history. Since February the site's resident tipster, Avo, has had his radar tuned. The past month's performance just demonstrates how well it is tuned in. Happy are those tipsters who have followed his tips since February 2010.
These five sharp shooters are a great place to start when you are thinking about whose tips to follow on the weekend. Remember the all time leader board tells you how things have gone over a long period of time. But if you want to know who is on a roll, the past month's leader board at theGreatTipOff.com is your ticket.
