Meet the team of pro punters here

Winning Edge Investments –

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff  – Sandown Race 3 #3 Clipper

McMurray Says: “Against the early favourite. Coming off a couple of fair runs in easier company than it meets here. Have a few ahead here in Strykinglee, Moonlover and Weekend Escape so keen to oppose.”

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Sunshine Coast Race 8 #5 Hi Lizzy

Baker Says: “Going below average this preparation. Maps poorly and will have its work cut out chasing a couple of handy types in this.”

Racing Watch –

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Warwick Farm Race 3 #6 Tinkermosa

Walter Says: “On a day with extremely limited lay opportunities this filly looks vulnerable. Drawn poorly in a race with questionable speed on paper. She jumps from 1600m to 2130m – comes off a last start pace assisted win in much easier grade where not exactly bursting through the line. Faces a monster task today.”

Racing Rant –

Marc Lambourne – @justideal – Warwick Farm Race 5 #2 Hallelujah Boy

Lambourne Says: “Sixth up, all favours last star in the fast lane at Hawkesbury. Rails map today no advantage, good lay as favourite in a weak race.”


John McLeod – @macbetjohn – Sunshine Coast Race 2 #1 Red Phantom

McLeod says: “Red Phantom is one of many chances in this race. The $3.00 early is a lot shorter than I have him, so it will be a dirty result if wins for Macbet.”


racebk –

Ben Krahe – @racebk_com – Shepparton Harness Race 1 #1 Harry Turbo

Krahe says: “Looks the leader but is weak, has been to Shepparton 11 times without a victory and also at this journey 11 times for only one win. Will face a bit of pressure probably from Maken Art Magic here and can’t see it sustaining that.”

Ratings2Win –

Paul Daily – @PaulD01 – Warwick Farm Race 7 #7 Revolver

Daily says: “The negatives are he has had three runs back this preparation that have been below the required number to win this. On the positive he gets a nice run on the speed and on his best ratings he can win, however on recent form he looks one to avoid at the current fixed odds of $6.00.”

Dickos Mailbag –

Jack Dickens – @dickosmailbag – Sandown Race 4 #9 Californiagrandcru

Dickens says: “Gets Mark Zahra and drops back in class but back up in trip. He’s one from 10 starts and appears as a bit of a pack chaser for mine. Looks a race with a few chances.”

Winning Edge Investments –

John Lawson – @Johns_Analytics – Murray Bridge Race 4 #3 Betcher

Lawson Says: “Has won three of his last four starts, all on the dirt track at Port Augusta and the last two with today’s 4kg claiming jockey, Gary Lo on board. Has pace but is up against an up and comer in 10-Life’s Reward and a talented old-timer 1-Snip Of Magic so prepared to lay here at the price back to the turf track.”

Champion Bets –

Trevor Lawson – @lunchandpunt – Sandown Race 4 #9 Californiagrandcru

Lawson Says: “Has been up a while, won a weak staying maiden in February. Given two runs back off short break and quickly to 2400m. Hasn’t had any runs of substance for mine, Hard to work out why so short. Keen to oppose.”
