Horse racing tipster of the week
It was a strong week on the punt from the media experts, led by a couple of veteran race callers from the SKY Racing stable.
The punters also had a good time of it, with one bloke in particular delivering one of the best weekly profits all year.

That honour belonged to North Queenslander TheMagicMan.
This punter was finding stacks of value, with 6 of his 41 selections booting home at an outrageous average price of $32.07.
Highlights included $45 pop Sky Punch which saluted at Morphettville on Saturday, and $65.80 roughie One For Rocky that got the chocolates at Thursday's Mornington meet.
TheMagicMan pulls a rabbit out of his hat
This terrific display of value tipping from TheMagicMan generated $15,140 in cash profit from $100 win bets and a 369% Profit on Turnover (POT).
You won't see many weekly performances topping that in 2020.
The first of the SKY Racing brigade to get some bang for his buck was none other than Colin Hodges.
Col simply can't stop tipping winners at the moment.
He jagged another two at Mudgee on Sunday, both of which started at odds greater than $8.
This drove a 219% POT, or $1,530 in cash profit if you followed Col's Mudgee tips with $100 bets.
This effort also consolidated a seventh consecutive monthly profit for Hodges.
Look for him to make it eight straight in September.

The next SKY race caller to show he's a dab hand on the punt was David Fowler.
One of the Sunshine State's premier race callers, Fowler was all over the Ipswich meet on Thursday.
He nabbed 4 of the 7 winners, including $14.50 shot Quotant in the last.
This superb performance resulted in a bumper 207% POT, putting a smile on the faces of Fowler's followers.
Also flying the flag for the media experts was Alan Pearce from Winning Post.
The Sydney form analyst was on song at Saturday's Rosehill meet.
His 4 winners came at a meaty average price of $5.78, impressive considering that this included Pearce's best bet Mugatoo, that started at even money.
Pearce clocked off with a ripping 157% POT.
The final mention of the horse racing tipsters goes to pro punter RonnieHanks.
Another Queenslander to have a whale of a week, RonnieHanks finished up with a fat 139% POT.
This was thanks to 3 of his 13 tips getting home at an average price in excess of $10.
And far from being a one-off flash in the pan, this pro punter has a proven record of putting in this kind of performance.
Not only is he sitting on a two-month tipping streak, but he's also showing a handsome cash profit of almost $3K after placing 186 tips over the past 180 days.
What an effort.

Harness and Greyhound tipsters of the week
Kicking off with harness, and it was another race caller who showed his class, with RSN's Craig Rail rising to the summit of the leaderboard.
The Victorian snared 3 of his 9 selections, at a big average price of $7.80.
This generated a hefty 160% POT for Rail's followers.
One of the most exciting callers in the industry, Rail demonstrated that there's more than one string to his bow with this effort.
Onto the greyhound leaderboard and it was Rob Auber who fared best thanks to some sensational tipping.
Most would know Auber for his harness exploits but it was the dogs where he made inroads this week.
Auber saw his tips salute at a superb strike rate of 58%, driving a meaty 103% POT.
And with $1,620 in cash profit from $100 win bets over the past 30 days, this analyst is in a rich vein of form.
