Just the one betting day this week and wasn’t it a huge night with Shima Shine $3.50 & Athletic Lee $6 both getting the job done for us.

Dean’s Tips


Week: 20.6 units profit (154.9% POT)

Overall: 713.1 units profit (7.9% POT)

Nice start to the week on Tuesday having a great place result with 50/1 pop Aurelius Hero for us. Big day on Wednesday with Dean finding the Balaklava Cup winner Brown Ben at $19.95. Winning day on Friday driven by Lady Evelyn in our only betting race the Tuncurry Cup at $8.60. We closed out the week in style on Saturday with Dalasan $2.60 & Spanish Whisper $7 both getting the job done for us.

Dean’s Tips has made 82 units profit at 31.1% POT over the past 16 weeks.


Here’s what Dean had to say:

An excellent week delivering 20.5 units profit at 154% POT. We bet on 4 days this week for 4 winning days. 

Aurelius Hero ran 3rd at 50/1 on Tuesday, Brown Ben won the Balaklava Cup at 20/1 on Thursday, Lady Evelyn won the Tuncurry/Forster Cup at $8.60 on Friday, and Spanish Whisper $7 and Dalasan $2.60 won for us on Saturday. 

Silently kicked myself all afternoon for not including Gatting in our quaddie yesterday. I am huge fan of the Mcauliffe stable who statistically are a fantastic betting stable in WA, and you may have noticed we have backed many of his runners in recent months, but I felt the stable wasn't going as well recently. I left Gatting out, we got 3 out of 4 legs and the quaddie paid $100,000. Might take a few days for me to get over that one.

Regardless, we're having an excellent period with over 75 units profit at 30% POT since June 1. Long may it continue through Spring.

Overall: 7.5 units profit (3.6% POT)

We just bet into the one game this week and it was a good result taking aim at Geelong -1.5 & 1-39 who defeated West Coast by 20 points.

Members are sweating on a massive 24u futures bet collect if Dangerfield wins the Brownlow. He is currently the favourite.

Overall: 107.3 units profit (9.5% POT)

Minor loss to kick off the week on Wednesday at Canterbury, one winner was Dance Hall Girl at $1.80. Profitable day on Thursday driven by Keiai Tsubaki at $15, Broken Arrows didn’t have the best of luck and ran a narrow 2nd at $3.40. Winning day on Saturday with Bivouac winning well for us at $4.40. Juventus ran a narrow 2nd at $4.95, whilst Champagne Cuddles loomed as the winner at $4.15 but was in inferior ground.


Here’s what Mark had to say:

Week In Review

Happy enough with the set of selections this week and we ended up 1.6 units in front.  Was close to being a big week though, with some near misses including Broken Arrows on Thursday being costly.

Canterbury (Wednesday) 

Dance Hall Girl - Found the right horse for the track pattern here, but misjudged the market move - the $2.20 available in the morning was better than anything available late.  Still, was never really in danger and was a comfortable winner.

Beaufort Park - Looked to map well, but they way the irrigated track was playing actually wasn't really suited.  Didn't finish off but wasn't in the best ground.

Obelos - A spec bet due to his gear change, he got into a terrible spot, was totally unsuited and never a winning chance.

Hawkesbury (Thursday)

Broken Arrows - Another hard luck story with this horse.  He was never on the track when a big shortener first up, and on this occasion went to the fence and was held up early in the straight and missed running down the winner by one stride.  The advice to take BOB or bet late was on the mark as he got to a very nice price, but just missed unfortunately (6 units difference here)

Maggie Miss - Very solid in the market and had her chance on the pace, but was run down - fortunately by our saver bet.

Keiai Tsubaki - Mapped well, and got to very attractive odds late.  Ran down the favourite and made it a winning race.

Rosehill (Saturday)

Juventus - Drew the right spot, had a perfect run following the favourite and just failed to run him down.  Has run really well but the favourite has run to his very best as well and was slightly superior.

Oneness - Looked to have drawn the right spot, was solid in the market but once the rider opted not to take the rails he was out of business.

Bivouac - Suited by the pattern on the day and returned to his best.  Had the race under control a long way out.

Champagne Cuddles - Was keen on her as she looked to be suited by the rails-in-run pattern, but bizarrely the rider elected to stay off the fence.  There were other hard luck stories in the race, but this one was gifted the run of the race and didn't take it.  A confusing, and probably costly decision.

A fair bit on this week - full set for Warwick Farm on Wednesday, then selections for Kembla on Thursday and Newcastle Cup day on Friday before we get into another big Saturday.

Overall: -40.4 units profit (-16.6% POT)

Winning result on Friday night with the Roosters covering the line for us against the Rabbitohs. No result on Saturday with Canberra & Manly both scoring upset wins.

Members are sweating on a 15u collect from futures bets if Tedesco (backed at $15, currently $1.60) can win the Dally M for us.




Week: -1.8 units profit (-64.3% POT)

Overall: 51.7 units profit (10.9% POT)

Losing weekend, we came close to a big result with James Morrison finishing 4th at $430, we still had a top 20 result at the $10.


John’s Analytics


Week: -7.4 units profit (-40.2% POT)

Overall: 293.2 units profit (11.5% POT)

Profitable start to the week on Monday with EW play Stellar Blaze running 2nd at $10. Small loss Tuesday before a win on Wednesday with both of our EW plays placing (The Mockingbird $5.50 & Shadow Shifter $15). Small loss Thursday with our one bet Duenna running 2nd at $4.50. No result across Friday & Saturday before a small loss Sunday with EW play Oscar’s My Mate Pa running 2nd at $7.50. 16u worth of 2nds for the week.


Trial Spy


Week: -9.8 units profit (-33.0% POT)

Overall: 705.1 units profit (9.4% POT)

Profitable start to the week on Monday with EW play Imapoet filling a place at $21. No result across Tuesday & Wednesday, EW play Cock Match ran 4th at $9. Small profit on Thursday driven by Sangria at $5.35. Minor loss Friday before a losing day on Saturday. One winner was Mizzy at $6, Absolute Flirt ran a luckless 2nd at $4.80 & EW play Beau Ideal ran a narrow 4th at $10. Great result on Sunday to close out the week with Misinformed Ben saluting for us at $4.80.

Trial Spy has delivered 139u profit in just over the past 14 months.


Here’s what Dean had to say:

No bets today. We had a nice winner with Misinformed Ben yesterday, to go with Sangria & Mizzy through the week, but it was a disappointing week mainly due to Saturday and we are 8u behind for the month to date. Saturday was one of those days. Absolute Flirt was a good thing beaten running 2nd and would have won easily with a clear run, Penang was heavily backed but disappointed running 4th, Moama Rose ran 3rd, whilst Beau Ideal ran 4th and Catch Me missed the start badly but charged home for 5th both beaten under a length.

We've had a luckless and disappointing period since making 30u profit in June, but we are up 128 units since June last year and will bounce back sharply as we always do, as the below article attests.


Pleasingly our Golden Rose Futures Bet, Yes Yes Yes, ran a cracking race for 2nd in the Run To The Rose, and is absolutely the one to beat in the Golden Rose in a fortnight. We got $11 and if punters are smart on the day, he should be favourite, and is likely to start under half that price.
