How did Deano do?
There's no question that Deane Lester is one of Australia's best form analysts.
The Melbourne guru has enviable tip statistics which demonstrate his consistency, with 6% POT recorded over the past 180 days
While he didn't have the best time of it last Saturday at Caulfield, he did manage to steer punters into some value.

Deane Lester's horse racing tips review 1st June 2019 (Caulfield)
Race 1: #2 Can't Be Done (5 units) and #4 Wilmot Pass (15 units)
It was an unlucky start to proceedings for Lester and his followers.
His value runner Can't Be Done finished agonizingly close in second place.
And his main bet, race favourite Wilmot Pass also looked the goods.
That's until he ran out of gas and finished a close 4th.
Race 2: #2 Igniter (5 units) and #11 Tysonic (10 units)
More bad luck, with Lester's main racing tip Tysonic coming in 2nd.
However, at $2.50 a place, those who backed each way would've cut their losses.
Igniter finished a long way back in 10th.
Race 3: #10 Magnossiva (5 units)
This was a throw at the stumps from Lester, given this Robbie Griffiths-trained gelding was as long as 35/1.
It never threatened, finishing at the back of the pack.
Race 5: #1 Jungle Edge (10 units)
While Jungle Edge ran a solid race to finish 4th, he just didn't get the wet track we all know he loves.
Lester wrote "the wetter the better", but with no rain about, some punters would've saved their dough here.
Race 6: #3 Propelle (15 units)
Probably the most disappointing result of the whole day, at any track.
Propelle was a well-supported favourite, but did absolutely nothing.
She sat in the second half of the field, and wasn't even sighted in the home straight.
Race 9: #9 Live and Free (20 units-Best Bet) and #3 Pacodali (5 units)
Lester finally got on the board in the Get Out Stakes.
His best bet ran second, while his roughie Pacodali got the win.
Lester tipped Pacodali at 10/1 so punters who got on early were laughing, considering his price was slahed in half at the jump.
And those who were brave enough to place a quinella were over the moon too.
It paid a juicy $7.40.
