It could be the worst beat you’ll see for a long time, and most certainly this Spring racing season… but more on that later.
With the footy season over, a slow week in the NFL and the NBA not quite here yet, it was a quieter-than-usual weekend of action on the sport front. Luckily for the punters, there was plenty of racing action.
- Jumper Leaders ($4.30) left the field in it’s wake with a dominant win at Port Macquarie
- Spin (3rd), Sun City (2nd), Gumshoe (2nd) and Regal Cannon (3rd) all had chances but couldn’t quite get the job done
- Zourkhan ($3.60) flew home in a strong win
- I Am Serious ($2) did as a short-priced favourite should late in the day
Three more 3rd-place finishes across the card made for a frustrating day despite breaking even.
- Extra Brut ($6) stormed to the front in the straight for a good win at Flemington
- A raft of placings included Yogi (3rd), Krone (2nd), Jeraft (3rd) and Ranier (2nd)
Rainer was undoubtedly the toughest pill the swallow, with Hugh Bowman butchering the job in a cautious ride ahead of his assignment on Winx later in the day.

It will take me years to work out what Bowman was doing on Ranier there. Had plenty of chances to get out.— Cam Rose (@camtherose) October 6, 2018
On the @tabcomau there was $221,544 invested on that race, just on the tote. Nearly $63,000 of that on RANIER. How much more on NSW, on @UBET and with the corporate books. At least hundreds of thousands of punters $$$ on RANIER. Bowman has a responsibility to give them his best.— Cameron O'Brien (@Gamblor_PCO) October 6, 2018
No joy for Trev’s Bets members at Moonee Valley (Friday) and Flemington (Saturday) with a raft of placings. Savoire (3rd), Krone (2nd), Verry Elleegant (3rd) and Savatiano (2nd) were all around the mark but failed to get over the line.
The Professor endured a tough day in Queensland across Doomben, Gold Coast and Toowoomba. After 3 weeks of Queensland Winners membership he remains over $700 in profit at better than 35% profit on turnover.
A very small outlay day for WA Winners members with just the one bet, double-figure roughie Saetta, failing to fire at Belmont.
Things barely got off the ground across the ditch with a raft of abandoned races/meetings wreaking havoc for NZ Tips members. Hastings seemingly avoided the carnage and Langkawi ($3.20) was a good winner there.
A quiet weekend for NFL Tips as well with just the one bet on Friday – New England/Indianapolis under 52.5 points. Looking good at three-quarter time, a final quarter touchdown frenzy blew that out of the water quickly.
After 5 weeks of NFL action members are sitting pretty with over $2,100 profit at nearly 36% profit on turnover.
While it was a very disappointing weekend for our analysts, a big September for many means that little damage is done. This is exactly why we take a long-term approach to punting.
As the membership approaches the end of it’s 3rd year since launch, total overall profit now stands at a whopping $84,500 after members made another $1,000 profit over the weekend.
In a weekend where not much went our way, the High Low continued to clean out the bookies. It is simply unrivalled for results.
