Melbourne racing

The Melbourne racing service by Trevor Lawson, Melbourne Ratings, is obviously profitable, having produced a whopping $34,973 profit (betting $100 per unit) at 13.5% PoT since launching in 2016.

But drilling down on the records a little more reveals some interesting facts.

One of them that’s particularly relevant at this time of year is Trev’s winter record.

In the three full winters since launching (June to August for 2016, 2017 and 2018), Melbourne Ratings has produced an amazing $9,971 profit (betting $100 per unit) at 15.4%.

It’s quite a record. Many punters vastly lower their output in winter… many take a break and don’t bet at all! Yet Trev clearly powers on.

We asked him about the main factors when betting in winter.


“The racing is obviously worth less in terms of prizemoney so naturally you get fewer horses visiting from other states,” said Trevor.

“It means you have a very stable population of horses running around each week, and they’re almost entirely locals. These are obviously the horses you know best as a punter who focuses on Melbourne racing. Of course you do the form on the visitors at other times of the year, but there’s no doubt you know the locals best as you’ve seen them more.”


The possibility of wet tracks certainly isn’t something that phases Trevor.

“It’s not so much of a problem for me because knowing the track is a major part of preparing for a meeting for me,” he said.

“For every meeting I’m betting into, I either walk the track myself, or somebody else does it and reports back to me in detail.”

Plenty of punters complain about bias but when you know where it is how it’s going to play, it can work for you.

Walking the track before every meeting gives you the insight you need to profit in winter. It’s just another benefit you get from betting with the Melbourne Ratings package.
