This week we are tipping at Flemington. Follow this link for today’s tips: and make sure you follow Mindy on Twitter.

Good luck and good punting!!!

Shumpty’s Punt: Sunday Best Bet (Horse Racing)

All eyes will be on the Bendigo Race track today at 12:59pm to see the much awaited debut of Black Caviar’s sister Belle Couture. Expect her to be at similar odds to her sister in that eve so won’t be getting involved.

40 minutes before hand though I like the 3 year old filly from the Sadler yard, Sarawak. It is the best horse in the race and has D Oliver aboard and that is enough for me. Rattled home first time out at Geelong a fortnight ago and should just have too much pace here.

The only restriction I would put on here is the price you might get. If the odd dip below $2.00 (which given the quality of the others in the race they might) I would keep the money in your pocket and hold it for another race and maybe another day.

Best Bet: Bendigo Race 2 Number 10 Sarawak

Shumpty’s Punt: Saturday Racing

The big racing this Saturday comes to us from Perth. I have done the form and whilst there is not a lot going around the country that I am keen on here are a couple of winners I am quietly confident about:


Race 6: Number 13 Thunderclap Newman (e/w)
Race 7: Number 1 Buffering


Race 1: Number 6 Occitan
Race 5: Number 7 Terravista


Race 4: Number 9 Xavi

As always: good luck and good punting. Please always gamble responsibly.
