Meet the team of pro punters here

Winning Edge Investments –

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff – Sandown Race 7 #5 Peaceful State

McMurray Says: “Must be against the early favourite who looks well under the odds. Resumes at 1300m with 59kg and has drawn wide – not many positives. Also meets a field of promising horses who have race fitness on their sides. Happy to play around Peaceful State for those reasons.”

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Warrnambool Race 1 #10 Freedom’s Light

Baker Says: “A low ‘high weight’ maiden staying contest. This horse jumps from 1600m to 2047m, seeing the staying trip for the first time. It has not indicated that the staying trip will suit (despite being out of Americain), failing to run out races over 1600m with any real gusto. Will most likely go back from barrier 8 and we fancy our chances of it being back in the ruck at the finish as well.”

Racing Watch –

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Randwick R4 #1 Invincible Quest

Walter Says: “Talented horse that was in good form before an enforced short break with a minor issue. Has trialled up solidly enough but strikes a tricky race devoid of any real pace. With the big weight he should find it very difficult to run down those up front, who should be dashing home. Happy to risk at the short early quote.”

Racing Rant –

Marc Lambourne – @justideal – Randwick Race 6 #10 Lucky Legend

Lambourne Says: “Lacking in both a 2400m platform and Metro credentials. Two wins to date at Kembla, and with time off and only one run at 2000m lacks the seasoning for this journey.”


John McLeod – @macbetjohn – Ipswich Race 2 #1 Betajet

McLeod Says: “Betajet has come up short here with Lloyd aboard. had his chance last time at Doomben and steps up to the 1200m from the difficult gate which is a real worry. We will be betting around him and looking for a result!”

Ben Krahe – @racebk_com – The Meadows (Greyhounds) Race 12 #3 Luke Roman

Krahe says: “This dog has lost confidence with two poor efforts over this distance range. He is a risky beginner on debut at the tricky Meadows circuit. Will be giving a few of these a start and need luck in running.”

Ratings2Win -

Paul Daily – @PaulD01 – Ascot Race 7 #4 Beg To Differ

Daily says: “Second up here after getting well back on resuming to finish off OK, but was suited by the pace shape of that race. Would need to lift sharply in performance to justify anything near the current fixed odds of $5.50.”

Dickos Mailbag –

Jack Dickens – @dickosmailbag – Sandown Race 5 #3 Casque

Dickens Says: “Luke Nolen off and Craig Williams on possibly explains the $6.00 they are offering but that’s about all I can find. I map him back in the field needing luck. Robbie Laing is going at around 9% with Casque is coming from a soft Sale win over 1100m but is yet to win beyond 1100m.”

Winning Edge Investments –

John Lawson – @Johns_Analytics – Warrnambool Race 2 #1 Skilled Hunter

Lawson Says: “Nice grey gelding from the all-powerful Darren Weir stable that won well at Hamilton two starts back before a good midfield run at the Sandown midweeks last time out. Must lump the topweight of 71kg in this 2400m high weight and looks like he’ll need to make a run from back in the field, which is always a big task in these sorts of races. The rest of them are not much good but I have a couple rated higher than this guy so must be against him at the current very short price of $2.30.”

Champion Bets –

Trevor Lawson – @lunchandpunt – Sandown Race 7 #5 Peaceful State

Lawson Says: “Resuming. 3YO who went from a Maiden win at Ballarat in good time to running second in the Group 2 Sandown Guineas. Draws the outside barrier from the 1300m here on Lakeside which looks a negative. Assuming it will go back first up. Happy to risk at current price of around $3.40 on the exchange.”
