The preceding 3 posts are thoughtless

So-called 'journos' are among those best placed to get an inside edge -- even if it is from a competing camp wanting to spoil the odds on a plunge horse.

I have seen fat little journos cover the distance form a mounting yard brfiefing, to a TAB window, faster than lightning -- and swagger back slowly to collect.


Neither Monty or any other 'tipster' gets it right everyday -- the question is about giving careful consideration to their tips.

..............I looked closely at Foundry, for example, and left it out...... few can put five in...... but Monty is enigmatic.

.................it would help if there were a rule requiring the notification of horses 'trialling' particularly well.

My problem is that I do rely on my own judgement.

Peter,

Given your distinct lack of being able to read the form presented on this forum in your posts you should not rely on your own judgement indeed!

Unfortunately working journos are working ..... still ...... for a reason......

I have seen them travel even faster trying to snip me for $50!

The only time the journos get an edge is when they tip one to push the price out on the one they really want to back.

The thoroughbred guys are good at it but the harness blokes are experts.

Here's one for Ol'Pete, no need to do the form, just outlay for his tips ...... but seeing it's a backwater of racing  :rolleyes:

Racenet tipster has the runs on the board

Clinton Payne - 4/03/2014

Tipping results produced by The GreatTipOff show Racenet's Brisbane form analyst Cameron Happ to be one of the best publicly accountable tipsters in the land.

The GreatTipOff.com is a tipping-based website that compiles profit and loss results of tips publicly provided by those in the media.

Happ, who manages the Racenet Ratings and Raceday products for Brisbane metropolitan meetings, has produced an outstanding 16 percent profit figure from 125 winners at a winning strike rate 29 percent, or better than a winner every four tips.

His average price of a winner over the past 12 months has been $3.94.

"Happ has amassed 125 winners over the past 12 months to achieve his double digit profit figure supporting his strong reputation as one of the most knowledgeable analysts of Brisbane racing form," The GreatTipOff.com website said.

There are plenty who are willing and ready to "bag" Dom Beirne when his tips in the Melbourne Cup don't finish in order.  The problem is he's just way ahead of most of us, and certainly a lot smarter than yours truly.

Sport Nat's form session on Friday last will be available on podcast.

Definitely worth a listen.  He nailed many winners - in one hit.

But something that should be mentioned is his summation of the Oakleigh Plate (as a guide to the Newmarket).

He gives a rating to each running of the Plate, and he made the point that this year's was the fourth highest in his bank of ratings.

Dom then continued to tell us that the only winning chances on form in the Newmarket were LR and Samaready.   emthup

As an aside he told us that in those other three higher-rated Plates, the quinella in the Plate was also the quinella in the Newmarket.

This year, not only did the quinella get replicated, but the trifecta did, also.

 :clap2:

And some people PAY for tips.  :nowink:

Young Mark Oberhardt told everyone who'd listen that HEZA BOBBY DAZZLER was by far the best horse in R5 yesterday.

But I think his fear of the barrier caused a serious under-play on his part.  :shutup:

I think the horse is a half to GALA AFFAIR.

4TAB's David Fowler doesn't think the last at Doomben is a match race.

He's left the CQld flyer out of the placings, and has CK in 4th.

3-1-8-2

I've tried the white dog the drum.

Solid effort from David Fowler to get his THREE specials home yesterday.

No doubt he's cleaned up on RIVER LAD at the juicy odds.

David Fowler's failure to tip a winner on top yesterday should be ignored.
imho there isn't a better judge of coming winners in the house.

One of the best things a follower can do, is look at his failed on-top tips and Black Book them,
DF can be guilty of going one run too soon with his selections. Horses are like jockeys at times - they have 'off' daze

At SC 7th March Siegfried flopped at $2.70 only to come out at GC a week later and bolt in at $4.

I think we'll have a winner shortly from this list:

Fast Arrow
Tints
Beau Jet
Handfast
Merion
Volkhere
Enquare
Facile Tigre

Can't say I follow every "best bet" tip posted by reputed guru Deane Lester on rsn.net.au but from what I've seen in recent weeks he's having a horror trot.

Most are quite short.  Many don't even get the drum.

I'd hate to be paying for them.
