NSW Tips & Ratings


Week: 6.2 units profit (84.9% POT)

Overall: 110.8 units profit (10.1% POT)

Great day at Rosehill on Saturday to break a recent run of near misses. 3 winners from just 4 races were Assault’n’bathory $4.50, Wimlah $3.60 & Greyworm $7.65.


Here’s what Mark had to say:

A light week with the meetings later in the week affected by rain.  A good Saturday made it a profitable week, finishing up over 6 units.


Warwick Farm (Wednesday)

Obelos - Very solidly backed from $5.50 into $4 SP.  He was expected to be fitter for his first-up but he weakened badly after a perfect run and there are big question marks over this horse for now.


Rosehill (Saturday)

Assault'n'bathory - Got the right conditions and the services of Nash Rawiller and dominated the race.  As I've mentioned before< Nash has the knack of getting limited horses to go to their best and this was another example.

Gunga Din - Got well back and never got into the race.  I gave him the benefit of the doubt on the wet ground due to his breeding, but he didn't appear to relish it.

Wimlah - Terrific ride from Tim Clark on this mare - he put her right up on the speed and her limited opponents were unable to get past her.  Defied a fairly sharp late betting drift, too.

Humbolt Current - Had a good run and worked home ok but was never a realistic winning chance and finished a fair 4th.

Costello - Drifted alarmingly late in betting.  Hit the front and looked a good chance at the 200m but was run down in the last 100.  A decent effort but found a couple better.

Desert Lord - Stuck to his task but may have lacked a bit of fitness on the wet track first up.

Greyworm - A pleasing result as we'd done our money on him first up as favourite when nothing went right.  A good ride from G Boss and a real grinding wet track effort at nice odds here got the job done.


Blackbook Bets


Week: 4.8 units profit (77.4% POT)

Overall: 287.6 units profit (6.7% POT)

Good day Saturday driven by Aeecee Tong De at $9, it wasn’t far off being a big day with Mia Georgia running a narrow and very unlucky 2nd at $27.10 (8.1u collect if she won). Diapason also ran 2nd at $5.50. Minor profit to close out the week on Sunday with EW play Gibbon placing for us at $9.

Blackbook Bets has delivered 72 units profit at 52.8% POT over the past 18 weeks.


John’s Analytics


Week: 3.6 units profit (44.4% POT)

Overall: 305.4 units profit (12.1% POT)

It was a profitable start to the week on Monday with Kidlat winning at $4.60. Minor loss on Tuesday before a win on Wednesday with the heavily backed Zounami getting the job done for us at $4.75. No result across Thursday & Friday before a win on Saturday to close out the week with our one bet Age Of Chivalry leading all the way at Caulfield paying $2.90.

John’s Analytics has made 65.1 units profit at 37.3% POT over the past 11 weeks.




Week: 0.1 units profit (2.1% POT)

Overall: 57.6 units profit (12.3% POT)

Minor profit across the weekend. The highlight for us was Lucas Herbert finishing top 10 at $21 in the European Masters.


NRL Tips


Week: -0.7 units profit (-12.7% POT)

Overall: -37.6 units profit (-16.0% POT)

Winning start to the week on Thursday night with the Cowboys covering the line for us against the Bulldogs. Frustrating result Friday night as we backed Broncos -2.5 & Broncos 1-12, they won by 1 point but it was in golden point. Small profit on Sunday with Cronulla +1.5 & West Tigers -2 both saluting, we also backed Cronulla 1-12, they led for most of the day but lost to Canberra in golden point.

Members are sweating on a 36u collect from futures bets if Tedesco (backed at $15, currently $1.75) can win the Dally M, and Mitchell (backed at $21, currently $1.40) can score the most tries for the season. Both are hot favourites in current markets.


WA Tips & Ratings


Week: -2.2 units profit (-20.2% POT)

Overall: 63.5 units profit (11.9% POT)

Minor profit at Belmont on Wednesday driven by Heavenly Affair at $2.08. No result on Thursday at Northam before a profitable Saturday with Great Again leading all the way for us at $2.30.


Trial Spy


Week: -12.2 units profit (-80.3% POT)

Overall: 712.6 units profit (9.6% POT)

No result across Monday and Tuesday before a luckless Wednesday. Our one winner was Fiery Red at $3, whilst Hulk $4.40 & Some Sort $3.30 both ran 2nd. Parche had no luck at $9.80 & EW play Riot Squad ran a narrow 4th at $41. Frustrating result on Thursday with Blitzar at $5.75 being grabbed in the last stride by a $71 chance. No luck on Saturday with Jovella running 2nd at $4.20 & EW play Anaheed at $9 running a narrow 3rd in a NTD race.

In total 15.5u worth of 2nds for the week.

Trial Spy has delivered 147u profit in just over the past 14 months.


Here’s what Dean had to say:

Luckless last week. Wednesday could have been huge but we had Parche miss the start then get held up and charge home too late, Would have made it interesting with a clear run. Riot Squad also settled last at 40/1 and charged home not beaten far but got too far back, and Some Sort a narrow 2nd, around 30u worth just that day. On Thursday, Blitzar looked home at $6 and was just run down in the last strides. On Saturday Jovella ran 2nd, whilst Anaheed ran 3rd beaten a nose for 2nd. Beau Ideal didn't handle the heavy track, but looking forward to getting a price about him back on the dry. Suspect Direct Vision yesterday pulled up with an injury.

The winter months have proven challenging, and we have only broken even during this period.

However we made 136u profit in the preceding 12 months, and are now in the Spring quarter where our Trial Spy profits have historically peaked during this period.

As Warren Buffet says, "investing is where wealth transfers from the impatient people to the patient people". This is the best time of the year now where the better quality horses and tracks mean excellent results. Also an exciting time with a number of our futures bets potentially hitting the track this Saturday for their first up runs.


Greyhound Genius


Week: -13.6 units profit (-48.6% POT)

Overall: 989.2 units profit (13.4% POT)

Great start to the week on Wednesday night with our one bet Just Terms saluting at $1.80. Frustrating day at Maitland on Thursday with our two strong bets both running 2nd, Ronny $1.90 & Fire Legend $1.80 (29.6u worth).

Greyhound Genius has delivered a remarkable 369 units profit in just over the past 11 months.
