Brush and Pan Tips
We were saying just last week in some sort of on line rant about tipping services, that we are quite happy to own up when our tips are rubbish.
Well this week we got our big chance!
The tips bombed out badly on Caulfield Guineas Day.
- There was hardly a winner in sight.
- The Lay of the Day got up.
- The Betting Portfolio doubled up, and had its first wipe out in over a year.
- We didn't win Fashions On The Field - again.
- We were chased from the course by angry hoards holding flaming torches and calling for swift justice.
We are probably exaggerating just a little.
But we have been wanting to use the brush and pan stock photo for ages.
We got the racing pattern totally wrong (which never helps) and there was actually one good value top pick winner. The Betting Portfolio was a little stiff not to get something back at least with two narrow 4ths in the each way bets.
However, it was excellent practice for our post race tipping career.
So brush and pan at the ready - and start sweeping.
Race 3: 7-SERENE MAJESTY 1st W=$10.90 - top pick
Race 9: 1-PRESS STATEMENT 1st W=$2.70
2015 Spring Campaign: 10 weeks - 3 profits - 6 returns - 1 wipe out. Net: $-192.15

Punting Check Up
With the intense punting weeks of spring about to kick off, it is time to do a check up and make sure you are getting the most out of your punting dollar.
There are always plenty of offers flying around and you can be clever and place bets to make the most of them.
Sportsbet are offering:
Matching the value of your first bet up to $150
- New accounts (ACT, QLD, TAS, NT only)
* Residents of other states. Don't be scared away by the asterisks. Once you open an account you are eligible for all the rest of the bonuses on offer.
There are always plenty of additional bonus bets going around.
Top Tote Plus
- best price out of the three TABs and Starting Price so you are always going to get better odds.
Weekly money back refunds
- better odds between Saturday 10am and 11am. We do much of our punting shopping in bulk through this offer.
The weekly money refund specials are especially good. It means you can just back a horse straight out to win and go for glory, with an insurance return if it gets beaten and runs a place. These are real money back offers too, not bonus bets like some agencies.
For example, last weekend Sportsbet offered money back
on Races 1 to 4 if you horse finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th.
And in Race 2 there were only 6 runners! That meant you could pick a horse (and one at good odds if you want) and have a very low risk bet and hope for an upset and a big collect.
They are doing it again this week!
on Races 1 to 4 on Caulfield Cup Day if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th .
You can also place all the same bets as the TAB, just get better odds and use the money back offers to make the most of your punting dollar.

SPRING CARNIVAL SNAPSHOT
#5 - THE TRACK WALKER
If you cast your eye out onto the course in between races, you might just catch sight of the professionalism of some jockeys.
Carefully walking the track. Pounding the ground. Watching for wear and tear. Looking for the best going to ensure they give their mounts the very best chance in the next race.
Either that - or they lost their bloody car keys during the running of the previous.
THE MOUNTING YARD
Expert punters know how important it is to check out the condition of your horse in the Mounting Yard before the race.
#2 - THE COAT
Check that the coat goes with the season. Winter coats on warm spring race days are a total fashion faux pas.
Coats only come in black, brown, bay, chestnut and grey which is a crying shame because soft pastels are really trending this year.
CAULFIELD TRACK GUIDE 2015
If you are heading out to Caulfield this week check out our Caulfield Track Guide .
Handy hints with associated nonsense about where to meet, where to hang out and how to avoid the queues on course.
No more chips and dim sims during feature meetings. Head down to The Paddock
a street food mecca according to the MRC press release. We said "Mecca" NOT "Maccas". Barbequed meat, souvlaki, Vietnamese soups, seafood dishes and quality burgers. Sounds most tasty.
- the once a year attendees queue for the portables, or crowd into the ground floor facilities of the main grandstand. Those with some inside knowledge walk out the back of the course and towards the stables, opposite the old betting ring where the old, red brick large toilet block
is clean, sturdy, and has no frustrating lines - even for the girls.
Caulfield is hip to the sounds of the new generation. Although we aren't in the slightest. Lots of DJs we have never heard of are performing both during and after the races. Sounds like a great chance to relive your best Break Dance moves.
View the full details of all that is happening at Caulfield this week.
