Red Belly Ratings delivered their best result of the year on Saturday, a profit of around 20 units on the Caulfield and Randwick meetings.
Members won a bit more or a bit less, depending on how well they shopped for prices.
A profit of 20 units equates to the following cash amounts:
• For a $50 per unit punter – $1000
• For a $100 per unit punter – $2000
• For a $500 per unit punter – $10,000
At Cauflield, members bet into 5 races and all 5 were winners, including the feature races the Caulfield and Thousand Guineas:
• Amicus ($13 rated $6.50)
• Trust In A Gust ($5.50 rated $4.80)
• Shooting To Win ($8 rated $6)
• Griante ($12 rated $11)
• Fawkner ($6)
At Randwick, members bet into 4 races, and got the following two winners:
• Hampton Court ($19 rated $13)
• Neena Rock ($4.80 rated $2.60)
At Red Belly, we always look to go against popular opinion, avoiding that pack mentality and media hype that many punters blindly fall into.
This was illustrated in our willingness to take on hot favourite Rich Enuff in the Caulfield Guineas, and the heavily favoured duo Sweynesse and First Seal in the Spring Champion Stakes.
All three of those favoured runners were below Ed’s rated price, and by backing his own markets, he was able to find value winners in the form of Shooting To Win ($8) and Hampton Court ($19).
It doesn’t always work out that way, but it’s great to be rewarded for hours of painstaking form analysis.
And when we reap the rewards, our members do as well.
