Top 10 Spring Punting Tips

Published: 23 Oct 2014

Get the bob in - make sure you give yourself every chance to beat the bookies this Spring


The Spring-time sees more Bookmaker deals and Analyst tips hit the market than Chris Waller runners in a 2400 metre race at Rosehill. There are thousands of opinions to weigh up and with big races hitting us almost every day, you've got to keep your eye on the ball.

The Race Guide's team of Analysts, Experts and Punters combine to give their Top 10 Spring Punting Tips to get the better of the bookies this season.

  1. "It's not about the best" the best horse in the race isn't the best bet if the odds are too short.

  2. "Unlucky runners everywhere" - prepare to get some bad luck and spread your bets to lower the risk.

  3. "Beware of the exotics" - trifectas, quinellas etc. are often less 'value' than other bets.

  4. "Trainers aren't tipsters" - trainers are promoters of their horses, don't expect a good tip. In fact, expect the opposite.

  5. "Go your own way" - the most popular horses are often the worst value.

  6. "Trust the market"  - if you want to cop a tip, watching the market move is the best way to go.

  7. "Watch the track" - if leaders aren't winning, don't back a leader. Simple!

  8. "Know when to place" - risky performers aren't usually good value for a place.

  9. "Chasing parked cars" - don't chase your losses on random races if things haven't gone your way.

  10. "Stick to your guns!" -  If you have done the work and fancy a horse, find the best value and get on!
