Who We Are

Dean Evans

Trial Spy & Dean's Tips

Dean aka the Trial Spy is the most profitable tipster in Australian history, and has made his services public since the start of 2013. Dean is featured on RSN racing radio regularly in Australia for his innovative and revolutionary approach to form assessment, and has been featured on numerous webinars and podcasts as a leading authority in the racing world. In addition Dean was independently ranked the Number 1 tipster on a public tipping website with thousands of professional, media and amateur tipsters.

Dean uses a combination of advanced form, speed, class, weight, rating, video and sectional analysis, plus the use of advanced statistical data and knowledge and his unique concept coined 'isolation' to provide highly profitable tips to members.

Since Jan 2013 Dean's combined services have generated profits of over 1340 UNITS (or $134,000 for someone betting $100 per unit). Please note all of these selections and results are publicly verified, having been sent to members prior to the races with results uploaded daily for review by all members for over 6 years.

No that's not a misprint. Comprehensive benchmarking has confirmed that these combined results have been industry leading over this period in Australia, with no other single analyst having delivered such substantial, verifiable results for members.

Luke Murrell

Luke Murrell's Tips

Luke Murrell is a well-established name in Australian racing, having won a huge number of big races – including the Melbourne Cup – as an owner and bloodstock manager. One of racing's most highly respected form analysts, Luke learned his craft under Rob Waterhouse for many years, and has selected and bought multiple Group 1 winners for himself and clients, including Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist, and recent Group 1 winners Brave Smash, Tosen Stardom and Master Of Design.

Luke is also a highly successful long-term punter who has run profitable services for more than two decades. Using multiple custom databases, coupled with his unmatched knowledge of Australian and international form, Luke’s methodology has proven year-on-year to be highly profitable.

Mark Rhoden

NSW Tips & Ratings

Mark Rhoden is a highly respected full time professional punter who focuses solely on NSW Metropolitan & Provincial racing.

Mark bets on NSW racing which means Minimum Bet Legislation applies. So those with banned or restricted accounts with bookmakers can still get set to win decent amounts with all bookies.

Mark has been the head trader of NSW racing for IAS and then Sportsbet since 2006, and learned his trade from the best in the business, Mark Read.

Mark's service is a true set and forget service with tips usually sent at 9am each NSW Metro or Provincial raceday to place as advised, plus at no additional cost Mark's full ratings spreadsheet with ratings for every runner plus comments to aid those betting throughout the day.

John Lawson

John's Analytics

John Lawson is a full time professional punter, whose service has produced nearly 300 units profit in just 19 months since inception.

John has built his own database which rates every horse based on a complex myriad of variables that he has refined and fine tuned over a number of years.

These are bets produced from modelling of John's database by a PhD Data Scientist. They find horses significantly mispriced by the market to derive exceptional profits. John advises members to simply place bets at the best possible price when bets are sent, as the vast majority of winners firm, making this a truly simple to follow bet and forget service. Big winners found over the past 4 months include Our Lucky Lucy $27, Preferred Route $24, Dutch Gal $24, Dakota Rocks $19, Poetic Dragon $19, Wild Fusion $18 etc.

Cameron O'Brien

WA Tips & Ratings

Full-time professional punter Cameron O'Brien  was bred to be a pro punter, with his father responsible for the Victorian weight & class tables and ratings for Don Scott's classic book 'The Winning Way'. Cameron shares databases with Mark Rhoden who heads our highly popular and successful NSW Tips & Ratings service. Not only does Cameron have a punting pedigree, he was also taught by some the best in the business.

Before going out on his own, he worked for the likes of industry veterans Mark Read and Gerard Twomey (Iasbet). As a result, his success story reaches to impressively raising a family of five children, all from his punting profits.

Cameron can be described a “flat track bully”. He knows what works and has found his niche working the WA market with his ratings system. It’s a proven 'cash cow' and he knows the inner workings of the state like the back of his hand due to an isolated, steady and limited pool of horses, trainers, jockeys, and tracks that are virtually always dry.

It means Cameron has a distinct advantage. His accurate ratings can generate exceptional profits because he works on a stable environment with less variables and biases.

Lachlan Mosley

Blackbook Racing

Lachlan Mosley has produced over 200 units profit since starting in 2016.

Lachlan develops his edge through thorough video analysis, combined with professional assessment of sectional times. Lachlan watches hours of videos and live races; documenting his findings in each race to highlight runners he would like to follow. When those runners appear next he uses his form analysis skills to identify when those horses should be backed, and when they should be left alone. Through the judicious use of each way betting, Lachlan reduces the potential drawdown during any unlucky periods, whilst maximising returns during the winning periods.

John Evans


John Evans has been a professional golfer since 1971 (45 years).

He played in two British Opens, won five professional events including two national championships, was a commentator on all professional events in New Zealand for twenty years, and commentated on the four majors, plus the Espirito Santo, the Eisenhower and the Australian Open. He was also a director of the Australasian PGA tour for eight years.

Best of all he now spends his time these days analysing and betting on golf.

He demonstrated his ability to find massive priced winners when tipping Brian Stuard on April 28 publicly to everyone on our blog, twitter and facebook to win the Zurich Classic at an incredible 1000/1, and has tipped tournament winners to members since then at odds of $340, $110 and $65. John's service has made members over 90u profit in 1.5 years since inception.

What You Get

Tips sent via e-mail and exclusive member login area

We have developed industry leading technology that enables with 1 click of a button to deliver selections immediately and automatically to members via e-mail and exclusive member login to ensure members can rely on the fact that they will receive the selections immediately. 

All the detail you require with every tip

Every tip is sent with all of the information you require to place the bet quickly and easily. Most services only offer a fraction of this information to save their own costs or time, but we know members are busy so we provide it ALL so that members can place their bets on quickly and ensure they get the best possible odds per our recommendations.

Additional members only education

Every member receives a Members Information Pack (approximately 95 pages) full of information on how to maximise their profits, covering topics including how to get the best possible odds, how to avoid getting banned by the bookies, improving mindset, sound bankroll management, understanding variance, FAQs and much more.

Accurate results recording

Most other services either:

  1. Don't record their results at all
  2. Don't provide them publicly for verification
  3. Are very unclear and unfair on how the results were recorded given the lack of information in their tips about where to bet, how much to bet and where to bet
  4. Record at unattainable and unachievable prices
  5. Simply don't record their results accurately
  6. Use an inconsistent method based on whatever gives them the best result
  7. Completely fabricate their results entirely

With our services results are accurately recorded EXACTLY per our official odds recording methodology which is clearly stated on the product page when you sign up.

With over 20 bookmaker options available to punters in Australia, plus 3 totes, plus Betfair, the opportunity is certainly there for all members to greatly exceed results and members often report securing significantly greater prices than officially recorded on winners.

Outstanding customer support

Any questions members have relating to the services are answered by our expert team of professional analysts or others who know betting back to front. No more speaking with customer service reps with no actual idea about horse racing, sports or betting.


Having been a member for about 18 months it is clear that Dean provides an absolutely top class service with outstanding results. The results speak for themselves but the fact you can go online and check the results for every single bet ever placed is fantastic. The other great feature of Data Spy is the excellent customer service. He is always quick to respond to emails and is happy to provide advice on a range of betting related queries. Dean’s service has also provided fantastic general betting and staking advice which has been extremely helpful. But at the end of the day, the best part has been really enjoying having additional cash in the pocket over a long period of time.

Rick M

I have been profiting from Data Spy for almost 2 years now and have seen my betting bank continue to grow at an impressive rate. During this time my profit from Data Spy has been approximately $15,000 and this number continues to grow as my unit betting has risen from $50 to $100 per unit. I have found Dean's Tips to be consistently profitable and would highly recommend his service for anyone interested in long-term profits from racing bets.

Pat H

Terrific service with a great strike rate and uncanny ability to kill the market. Highly recommended to anyone who wishes to gain the edge needed to beat the bookies year in year out. Profit recorded over 60u in 3 months! Dean killed it in the spring!!!


Data Spy is a highly profitable and reputable service and Dean is clearly the benchmark of horse racing analysts in Australia. Over two years I have made a profit on turnover of around 15%. Winners come in all sizes and bets are ultimately only provided where Dean believes he has an edge on the market.


Winning money is as simple as just following the tips with no research needed

Phil D

I've been a member of Winning Edge Investments for over a year and cannot speak more highly of the service from a results and service standpoint. Dean is always quick to reply to emails and is very personable and helpful, and has extended offers and provided advice well beyond what would be expected. Results are transparent and updated regularly and the quality of the tips speak for themselves with the profit provided. Drawdowns occur (like any service), but my bank has never been in danger and they have always turned, and more importantly I have confidence that they will always turn. The results over the last 2 months, with the upgraded selection methodology, have been outstanding and I'm looking forward to that continuing into the spring carnival, where Dean excelled last year. A very happy customer.

Jason P

Keep up the great work. Sorry to have nothing more constructive to say but frankly if you have complaints about this service, you are tough to please.

Jamien R

There is no other investment that I know of that can provide returns of 100- 200%pa

Richard C

Fantastic and very professional product you are offering. Keep up the good/hard work. I have recommended you on a few occasions.

Regan B

Can't see how it can be improved. Best service I've ever used.... by a long margin!

Graham M

An excellent service that is very professional, profitable and also transparent. Dean is a man clearly ahead of the game.

Matthew P

Keep up the good work. The amount of effort that goes into the service, and the obvious interest in looking after your members and providing them with a quality service is very much appreciated.

Scott H

Obviously I am delighted with this service ... winning is so much more enjoyable than losing (even though I am a small bettor). All up, this is an outstanding/personal/rapid response service. Many thanks.

Each of our services differs in delivery times. The aim of each service is to send bets out at the optimal time for members to secure the best possible price. All bets are sent to members via e-mail, and are also accessible in the exclusive Member's Login area.

For our horse racing services, tips are sent most days, usually between 9am and 11.30am each raceday. This is when all bookmakers have prices available, and minimum bet laws take effect, so that all of our members can get set if wanting to take a fixed price before prices are crunched in later in the day.

On rare occasions, tips are sometime sent before 9am or in the day(s) preceding to take advantage of the early markets, but only when most bookies have markets open. As a result our members are able to bet like professionals, take advantage of bookmaker errors and get set with top value market prices ahead of when other professional punters dive in and take the price.

Our sports services often tend to send their bets in the afternoon and early evening.

We do not have set release times for some services, and for good reason. From our experience, set release times can become a 'running of the bulls' type situation with everyone rushing to get prices which disappear quickly and are inaccessible to most members, which is of no benefit to the majority. Hence we spread our release times, and release when optimal prices are available to members.

It varies significantly for each service. The best way to review and check this is by downloading the results spreadsheet for the service you're interested in, and reviewing the average number of tips sent per day.

A unit is the proportion of your bankroll that you invest on each race. Betting with an allocated bank is critical, as is a staking plan. The size of bankrolls varies greatly across racing investors, so the unit based system is used to ensure the correct proportion of your bankroll is placed on each event you have invested in, regardless of the dollar size of your bankroll. We recommend all members start with a 100 unit bank, and invest 1% of their bank per unit. Your bank could be $1000, and hence you would invest $10 per unit. If your bank is $10,000, you would invest $100 per unit.

This is a safe and highly successful staking strategy that most effectively balances risk and reward, ensuring that you maximize profits whilst also minimizing any chance of blowing your entire bank during a drawdown period. It is a strategy most succesful professionals punters use worldwide, and separates us from most other tipping services that offer no staking suggestions, or stake haphazardly with no regard for the betting bank of their members.

No our tips don't win every week, and any services claiming they do are kidding themselves and frankly lying to their audience. There are losing periods in any form of investing, but the key is to look at our long term record. If you follow our staking methodology exactly then you can expect to make very good profits over the course of the year.

Data Spy has made a total profit of over 740 units over the past 4.5 years (over $74,000 profit for those betting $100 per unit), however there are still losing months during the course of a year. All of our services however have proven to be profitable over the long term.

Those members who gave up during the course of a losing period are probably still off blowing their money every week at the track. Those who stuck with our staking system and methodologies made and still make fantastic profits. If you would like to hear what those members had to say, take a look at our testimonials.

As these are recurring memberships, Credit Card & Debit Card are the only payment methods available.

Your membership with us is dependent on the package you subscribe to. For example, when you buy a monthly membership, you pay for the first month and you will be automatically debited each month. If you buy a yearly package, you will pay for the first year and you will be automatically debited each year after initial purchase. Once you have subscribed there is nothing more you need to do. But there are no lock-in contacts, and of course you can opt out at any time by cancelling in Paypal, in the member area of our website, or by simply letting us know, it's as simple as that.

If you buy a monthly subscription, you will be billed on that day and your subscription will run until the corresponding day of the following month. Similarly, if you buy a yearly subscription you will be billed on the first day and your subscription will remain active until the corresponding day the following year. Your subcriptions will automatically recur unless you choose to opt out.

Yes of course. You can cancel yourself anytime through your member's area, or simply e-mail or call us to do it for you. This will ensure that you are not charged for any more subscription payments, and the last payment you made prior to cancelling will be your last. Refunds are not provided part of the way through a subscription period.

Let's say you pay for the monthly service, but want to upgrade to the quarterly service. You can upgrade any package in the Subscriptions section of your Member Area.

We have some very serious punters as members, however our service is straightforward enough for even novices to enjoy. If you know how to read an e-mail or App push notification, find a race or spoting event, find the horse or team and place a bet then you're on your way. The one key factor is knowing how much you are betting per unit, so that when we send out the selection you know how much to invest. Conveniently, it's pretty simple! If you're betting $100 per unit and we suggest 1 unit win on Makybe Diva, then you place $100 the win on Makybe Diva. If we suggest 0.5 units each way on Vinnie Roe, then you place $50 to win and $50 to place on Vinnie Roe. Note if you were only betting say $10 per unit, you would have $10 the win on Makybe Diva, and $5 to win and $5 to place on Vinnie Roe. Remember your staking is all relative to your total bankroll. All members receive our exclusive 120 page Member's Information Pack to help them ensure they are following our methods and maximising their potential profits. The tips, stake and bankroll management are provided for you in an easy-to-understand format. You just need to know how to place the bets. Punters of any size can join, succeed and bet like a professional.

Our Profit Guarantee applies for all Quarterly or Annual memberships. We are so confident in our packages, that if you don't profit over the period of your subscription for any quarterly or annual package, and you remain a member, then we will double the period of your package for FREE! For example take a quarterly package, and if it doesn't make a profit through our official results for that quarter, you will get an additional quarterly package for FREE! Take a yearly package and if results don't show a profit, your next yearly package is on us! However you must remain an active member to receive the Profit Guarantee. When your payment is made, notify us and we will refund your payment immediately if the service has made a loss on official results over the subscription period. If you cancel the service prior to the recurring payment being made, then you are ineligible to receive the Profit Guarantee refund. Given members subscribe at different times, simply advise us within 72 hours of being billed of this losing period to be eligible for the refund.

The results posted on Twitter are done by members as a service to other members, to give them an idea of the results for the day, week, month and overall for the service. They are usually correct, but results are official after they have been reviewed by the analysts and the spreadsheet uploaded to the website.

All of our expert analysts and professional punters back their selections heavily themselves for as much as they can get on. However due to their success and subsequent heavy bookmaker restrictions, our experts can't place bets for a sufficient amount as the bookies won't take their bets. Each corporate bookmaker however is required with the minimum bet laws to bet you to win $2,000 on a Sydney Saturday race, which means smaller punters can get on for their desired amounts. Our experts spend the majorite of their time devoted to analysis and upkeep of databases, so running services is an additional way for them to subsidise the enormous time & monetary investment required to be a successful winning punters. The goal of Winning Edge Investments is to help educate the everyday punter on how to make a meaningful long-term profit.
