Punters Corner

OUR THREE Punters Corner tipsters went very close to starting our 2022 Punters Corner Charity Tipping Competition with a perfect three out of three.

Both Chris and Mark tipped winners and The Methven Magpie went close when his tip of He’s A Jackalack, ran second yesterday to Here’s Herbie at Ashburton, paying $2.20 for a place in race three.

Granted both Chris and Mark's tips of Oliver Winkle ($1.10) at Marburg on Sunday and Imperious ($1.50) at Wagga on Monday, straight out punters couldn’t get rich out of but let’s hope some of our Punters Corner followers used them as anchors in exotic combinations or included them in multis.

They have started the New Year in form !!


Sunday @ Hamilton Race 7 No. 6 EVA MATEO

This classy mare looks hard to beat, on the quick back-up after being run down on Monday afternoon at Maryborough.

But that could bring on her even more.

Has great gate speed and can take this all the way while Jilliby Selwood looms as a genuine threat.

Give her strength.

The Methven Magpie is heading to the second day of the Marlborough Harness Racing Clubs meeting on the grass at Blenheim tomorrow for his best bet of the week.

He liked the way Mikis Shining Star went on the first day after having a little dipsy doodle early in its race on Friday and The Magpie can’t see any reason why there won’t be sufficient improvement from that run for the gelding to go very close to winning in race two tomorrow.

So, it's Race 2 – Number 5 – My Shining Star at Blenheim tomorrow as The Magpies best bet for his many followers.


Junee race Tuesday night and the Junee postman has Tashs Mate in race one, he bolted in two starts ago at Albury and then disappointed at Cobram last time.

He's having his first race start up the famous Junee hill but Bruce will have him primed and ready, he's got early speed if he wants to lead.

Should give a really good sight.

Good punting


Good punting to all.
