Media experts on song
After Tony Brassel and Terry Bailey showed how it's done last week, their media tipster colleagues followed suit this time around with a top display of tipping.
Six of the top ten spots on the weekly leaderboard for most profit were filled by experts from Australia's racing media, who look to be hitting their groove in the lead-up to the Spring Carnival.
Top 10 Tipster Leaderboard for cash profit
But once again, it was a pro punter who topped the pops for most cash profit.
That honour goes to veteran punter Fordcat17, who has been tearing it up in 2019.
Over the past seven days, this Victorian had 14 winning tips at a monster average price of $13.91.
If you'd followed these tips with $100 win bets, you would've been $3,770 in the black. This takes his 30-day profit figure up to $4,790.
And after tipping a profit in 5 of his past 7 tipping days, you can bet Fordcat17's selections will be hot property in the coming days.
Fordcat17's tipping streak
Onto the media experts now and the one who really impressed was Craig Mordey.
Mordey is an ultra-experienced journo, who now provides his free tips for Sydney Morning Herald Racing.
And his tips proved bang on the money last week.
Mordey was seeing them like beach balls, finding 11 winners at an incredible strike rate of 46%.
This incredible tipping accuracy led to a cash profit of $2,480 at a cracking 103% POT.
Plus, change the settings on the leaderboard to "actual stake" and Mordey's profit jumps up to $3,460.
That's because three of his best bets saluted, including the $8.50 starter Micks New Chick at Kembla last Saturday.
Craig Mordey's big best bet play
Mark Guest also put in an impressive display of tipping.
While he provides his free tips and form analysis through SKY Racing, Guest is best known in racing circles as the agent for star jockeys James McDonald, Regan Bayliss and Brett Prebble.
It's clear Guest is a man who lives and breathes horse racing, and that was evident in his tip results.
He found 15 winners at a standout strike rate of 47%, resulting in a cash profit of $1,760.
You would've brought home this profit if you backed Guest's selections with $100 bets.
The next media figure who deserves a wrap is RSN race caller Adam Olszanski.
We've mentioned numerous times in the past about the value that race caller's tips offer punters.
They watch the horses go round closer and more regularly than just about anyone else.
It's therefore no surprise that they are always bobbing up with a nice profit for their followers.
$1,530 was the total Olszanski ended up with, after finding 10 winners.
Not a bad effort at all.
A final shout out goes to Glenn Munsie, who had some terrific tip stats.
Munsie was on fire at Randwick last Saturday, tipping 5 of the 9 winners on the card.
These winners resulted in a whopping 150% POT and a cash profit of $1,350.
No doubt Munsie was shouting the beers on Saturday night with his Sky Racing colleagues.
