Media experts fire back
The media experts and racing journos have been relatively quiet over the past month.
It's no surprise though that the new racing season has woken them up, with a handful of them fighting their way into the top 10 for most cash profit on our weekly leaderboard.
However, as is usually the case, it was the pro punters who had the best of it.
And the pro that put in the best all-round tipping display was Bothas29.
This punter steered his followers into 16 winners at a phenomenal strike rate of 43%.
These terrific numbers resulted in a cash profit of $4,470 and a 121% POT.
However, the most impressive element of Bothas29's effort was the fact that he picked the winner in the first Group One of the Spring Carnival.
Samadoubt caused a boilover in the Winx Stakes at Randwick, making every post a winner to triumph at odds of $41.

With the Group One races coming thick and fast from now on, punters will be turning to pros who have shown that they can deliver in the big races.
So if you're searching for Saturday racing tips for the big meets, look no further than Bothas29.
Toptipswednesday was another pro punter who tipped up a storm over the past seven days.
His 25 winners at an average price of $6.16 generated a cash profit of $3,190.
Contrary to what his name suggests, this Victorian provides tips for just about every day of the week.
Having said that, doesn't he know how to tip a good winner on Wednesday.
Last Wednesday, he gave his followers two winning tips that were around the 15/1 mark.
Now that's skill.

Onto the media experts now, and the best of this bunch was up-and-coming WA analyst Scott Embry.
Embry was ultra-precise with his selections over the week.
While he only tipped 7 winners, they came at a ripping strike rate of 47% and an average winning price just a shade under $5.
These kinds of numbers are indicative of the bigger picture with Embry.
Remarkably, he's sitting on an all time POT of 2%, after placing 1,335 tips over the past two years.
There aren't many media tipsters who can boast these kinds of stats, and why Embry is one to follow.
The next media expert who had a corker was none other than the Persian prince Ben Asgari.
One of Racing.com's favourite tipsters, Asgari found 8 winners for his followers at an incredible strike rate of 50%.
This returned a cash profit just shy of $2K for all those who backed the prince's tips with $100 bets.
Asgari is in some stellar form at the moment, having secured a profit from 5 of his previous 7 tipping days.

There's no doubt that his free tips will be followed with interest this weekend.
A final mention goes to one of our favourite media experts, David Gately.
Gator is also in some incredible form at the moment.
He backed up some good results of late with $1,690 in cash profit over the past week.
This profit was driven by 9 winners, and like Asgari, a stellar strike rate of 50%.
It's no mean feat to tip a winner from every two selections.
And that's why experts like Gately and Asgari are so popular amongst racing fans.
