Best horse racing tipsters in August 2018

The Best punters on parade

Another tough month for most punters in August. However there wasn't a shortage of outstanding profit makers from the vast list of Australia's racing media, professional punters and others whose tips are posted at theGreatTipOff.com.

The six awards covering the top three place getters for both cash profit made and profit on turnover (POT), were split evenly between the racing media and punters. With two life-long profit makers appearing yet again in these top three spots.

Highest profits as a percentage of turnover

After assessing the best tipsters available in the market outside of theGreatTipOff.com in our ground breaking audit of 50 Australian pro horse racing tip sites, we are now more confident than ever that there isn't a sharper punter around than Formulator from Melbourne.

He is the two time winner of Tipster of the Year, and has amassed countless Tipster of the Month awards over the six years that he has tipped at theGreatTipOff.com.

And now, with a tad under $26k profit amassed from $100 win bets, he claims yet another best of the month award.

While only tipping the one winner from 17 tips during the month, which paid a tasty $38.40, his record shows that he is capable of doing this with enough consistency to be one of the few Australians to earn the title professional punter. His August effort represented 126% POT

Our recent audit of 50 Australian pro horse racing tip sites highlights that many tipping services use odds that inflate profits way higher than the ones we display using Best Tote. This fact further underlines just how good this bloke is.

Less than 2 percentage points behind in second place was country racing journalist Ben Walker. Working for national broadcaster Sky Racing, Ben tipped six winners at average odds of $9.33 from 25 tips posted during August for an outstanding 124% POT.

The third place getter was Thoroughbred Racing Northern Territory CEO and race caller for the Sky Racing network, Andrew O'toole. O'toole cleaned up for punters at Darwin's annual carnival.

Tipping 8 winners from the 16 races at Fannie Bay over the two day carnival gave him a smashing 99% POT from his 50% strike rate. 


Highest cash profits


Best horse racing tipster in August 2017

This category usually captures those punters and tipsters whose betting strategy involves a higher frequency of bets to profit.

This month's winner is West Australian form analyst and journalist for Ozrace.com.au Chris Blackwell.

The sandgroper tipped no less than 43 winners from 143 selections over the 31 day period leaving $100 win bet punters with a tidy $6,750 profit.

Runner-up, TurfCutter is another one of those life-time profit makers whose expertise continues to prove itself.

The New South Welshman tipped 225 winners in August making $4,234 profit using the same stake amount for Chris's tips above.

Punting on the site since November 2014 this smart punter from country NSW has made $25k for punters at the same stake level.

Second runner-up was LuckyStar who found 44 winners at average odds of $8.29 to make $100 win bet followers a tasty $4,195.


All of these punters and media tipsters are in the horse racing tips market which is the only place on the web to get free tips from Australia's top racing media experts, professional punters and other punters who sign-up at theGreatTipOff.com.
