Gareth Phillips

Gareth Phillips is one of Australia’s most experienced form analysts and punters. Starting with Mark Read straight out of high school, Gareth spent decades as a form analyst with professional betting syndicates before ‘jumping the fence’ and learning the other side from inside Australia’s biggest bookmakers.

Gareth’s done it all in a lifetime at the sharp end of the betting industry.  You can hear his all the details of his fascinating career story – as well as some form tips – right here:

The Market

Sydney Racing Review

Gareth’s experience and vast knowledge of trainers, jockeys and tracks sees him confidently taking on racing at all levels across New South Wales and South East Queensland.

From country meetings to Group 1 events at Randwick or Doomben, Gareth’s ability to quickly assess races and betting opportunities means he’s able to search far and wide to find the value required to bet.


Gareth’s betting approach centres around his personal form database, which he’s built and refined over many years in the industry.

Using his database and experienced gained over decades in the industry, Gareth has studied form and framed markets for some of the country’s biggest betting syndicates and bookmakers, where his markets were often the first to be published publicly in Australia.

What Others Say

A former senior manager of Gareth’s, from his time in the bookmaking industry:

“During my 13 years with the combined businesses I hired and fired about 20 analysts. Not only did Gareth outperform all of them in terms of results, but he also demonstrated a work ethic that was second to none.”

… and another:

“Gareth was responsible for trading and providing prices for horse racing including some of the most iconic races in Australia. The position required excellent analytical skills as well as the ability to liaise between different departments. Success was dependent on strong attention to detail and efficient work processes. These are all characteristics which defined Gareth.”

Aaron Barby, highly successful former Champion Bets analyst:

“I’ve known Gareth for years and have worked alongside him at times. He’s a ripper bloke and a ripper judge. His years of bookmaker experience means he knows the game from the inside out. Framing markets is second nature to him, having done it for so long. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone with more passion and knowledge of the great game. He finds value, and he finds winners.”

How do I use the members' information?

Each of Gareth’s bets will include the race, number and runner, a recommended stake and recommended bet type. For example:

WAGGA . 1 #2 BOUDDI 1u @ $7.50 fixed (Marked $4.80)
This would be at Wagga in Race 1 on Number 2 called Bouddi. Bet 1 unit now at $7.50 fixed.

You will get a set of Ratings for each meeting. Each Ratings sheet shows the relevant information for each horse (Name, Number, Jockey, Weight, Previous Form, Trainer, Map) along with Gareth’s rated price, which is framed to a 100% market. That means the available odds for most horses will be under Gareth’s rated price, since the market percentage is anywhere from 110 to 130%.

It’s possible to back all the overlays (when the prices available from bookies are above Gareth’s rated price for that horse), but it is worth noting Gareth’s recommended betting strategy in the comments for each race. That is the way he wants to play that race, and he typically wants good value to get involved. He has a far more selective approach than just blindly backing all overlays.

Of course you can also use the prices and speed comments to develop your own method that suits your individual punting style. These are rated prices that will beat the market, so how you use the information is up to you.

When should I bet?

Gareth offers clear betting instructions. For the bets where taking Fixed odds is suggested, it’s likely that these runners could shorten in the market so it’s best to take that available price. You may find some additional value in watching the markets during the morning but Gareth will advise if he wants to bet in further races throughout the day.

Who should I bet with?

To get the best available odds, it’s best to have a number of accounts to ensure you’re getting the best price. All Australian bookies offer markets on all every race that Gareth bets intob

Will I be automatically re-charged?

All memberships (with the exception of 1 dayers) are set up to recur by default but there is no ongoing commitment. If you wish to cancel you can do so at any time.

What is the bankroll management plan?

Each bet advised will include a recommended stake in units. 1u = 1% of your betting bank, so simply divide the amount of money you have set aside for punting by 100. Eg. if your bank is $10,000 then 1 unit = $100.
