Pro punter and theGreatTipOff.com's harness expert Michael Johnson is one of the best judges of trots racing in the country.
Don't take our word for hit. Check out the harness leaderboard over the past 365 days.
In this period Johnson tipped an outrageous 418 winners, at a strike rate of 20% and a mouth-watering average price of $5.82.
This has generated a phenomenal 16% Profit on Turnover (POT), or no less than $33k in cash profit for anyone who followed all of his tips with $100 bets.
Unsurprisingly, these numbers put Johnson at the summit of the 365-day leaderboard.

A big part of Johnson's success is how effectively he implements Dutch betting.
This method of tipping multiple runners in a race to turn a profit has been fruitful for many pro punters, but none more so than Johnson.
Take his most recent winner as an example.
At Redcliffe on Tuesday, Johnson got a hold of $6.50 hope Bettor Sport in Race 5.
This was one of two selections Johnson tipped in the race.
Dutch betting is particularly useful for a tipster like Johnson whose strength is identifying the overs in the market.

In other words, he tips a lot of longer-priced winners, reflected in his $5.82 average price over the past year.
Selecting multiple value runners in a race is a punting strategy popular with some of Australia's top tipsters, including Deane Lester.

Another example of Johnson using Dutch betting to perfection came at Albion Park on May 29.
In Race 10, he tipped two selections, Sir Fahrenheit and Il Pirata.
It was Sir Fahrenheit who got the chocolates, at thumping $12.80 odds.
Johnson clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to Dutch betting.
