Dean Evans

Expert Analyst

barrier trial

Since commencing with Champion Bets back in 2013, Dean has shown an amazing ability to find winners at value prices, purely from the study of barrier trials. He has developed and fine-tuned a revolutionary approach to an area of form assessment that many punters and bookmakers continue to either ignore or undervalue. Many have tried to copy this approach, but none have come close to the amazing results Dean has compiled over many years.


The Approach

Dean pores over vision of the huge number of trials and jump-outs held right across Australia, identifying horses that show particular speed or form relative to the conditions and competition.

Applying this knowledge to raceday, he follows these horses throughout their preparations, striking and recommending bets when value is offered by the market.

Commencing with Champion Bets in 2013, the Trial Spy approach has delivered consistently high returns over many years.


The Market

The massive Australian racing market varies greatly across states and seasons, from the bright lights of Flemington or Randwick with their high-volume pools to country racing across all corners of the continent. As long as they’ve shown the required form in trials or jump-outs, Dean will follow Trial Spy horses anywhere in the pursuit of value.

How we bet

Dean analyses trials and jump-outs across all states of Australia, and follows horses that show ability and represent value when they get to the racetrack. Trial Spy horses can race anywhere in Australia at any time.

While win betting is the predominant approach for Trial Spy, each-way and even exotic bet types are included where value presents itself.

He has developed and fine-tuned a revolutionary approach to an area of form assessment that many punters either ignore or under-value.

Trial Spy covers meetings all over Australia, finding the best value picks from each day of racing for members to profit from.


Results will be recorded at a mixture of best tote, best of the best or 3rd best fixed price. More information available in the member’s pack.


An update will be sent every morning, but there is no set release time. It will depend on when the odds are available for the horses Dean wants to back.

You should also download our app to get push notifications for all updates.



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. E.g. if your bank is $10,000 then 1 unit = $100.

It’s generally advisable to bet as soon as possible upon receiving the bets. Again, we recommend getting the app to ensure you get the alerts.
