Australia's Melbourne racing form experts rise for Spring
As we draw closer to those magical Group 1 race programs in October and early
November, the thoroughbred talent in the Saturday race fields continues to build.
What started with one or two group races almost a month ago becomes four Group
races in Sydney and four also in Melbourne at Flemington for Makybe
Diva Stakes Day. The usual challenge to find a winner becomes somewhat
harder as news stories for each feature race increase in volume as do the number
of self appointed racing experts with horse
racing tips and another perspective on the big races.
Just like the horses we back, form analysts have form to: the profitability
from every bet they make or tip they post. In addition to punters who post their
tips on their tipster pages created through theGreatTipOff.com, we capture just
about every one of Australia's most respected racing form analysts' best bets
each day. Interestingly three of the biggest names associated with Melbourne
racing are all firing just in time for the Spring Carnival.
Respected by every person you come across in the racing industry, Deane's views
on Melbourne racing are procured by racing professionals every week. Whether
it be trainers looking for his speed maps, bookies looking for market assessments
or punters looking for a winner, Lester's race day package is one of the most
valued pieces of racing opinion in Australia. Over the past month Deane's top
selection in each Melbourne race he has assessed has delivered punters double
digit profit. If you are not one who takes tips you'll appreciate the comments
he provides for every runner in Saturday's Melbourne metropolitan race meeting.
Deane's race day package is available from about 9 am on Wednesdays, Saturdays
and other selected race days including major midweek carnival meetings.
With 530 selections posted over the past 12 months it's not easy
work to show a profit from an even stake on each tip. Mark Hunter has done it,
and if the consistent profitability he has shown from his selections over the
past four years is any guide, it's probably going to continue over the Spring.
Mark Hunter typically provides selections for each race on Saturday's Melbourne
metropolitan racing card and also for midweek feature racing events.
Racing commentators can typically cop a bit of stick from punters because unlike
the rest of us, their pre-race comments are heard by a very large audience.
If one of their comments happens to send us a bit in the wrong direction, well
you know who typically gets the blame. David Gately, racing commentator for
TVN on the Racing Network provides his best bet selections through the Best
Bets betting magazine and through Racing Network's website. Over the past month
he has proved that his knowledge of Melbourne racing adds value to punters with
a win profit on turnover of 12% from his selections. David's selections are
typically available around 10 am on Saturdays and selected midweek and Sunday
