Our chief racing analyst Neil asked one of our high profile members for a testimonial back in 1998 and was very pleased at what he received.
"As someone who enjoys success as well as the punt, I have found The Professional Punter ratings and selections to be highly accurate and professional."

"In 2005, I subscribed to the Premium Horse Racing Betting Package. I believe that my subscription is close to completion and I would like to confirm that I will not renew it for the next year.
The information has been outstanding and the forums Propun offer are top class - but I withdraw my subscription due to personal reasons.
Yours in Punting,
With us eight years:

As you know I apply a few filters to the Super Specials and other top rated selections.... In 2004 I ended up with 57 bets for 27 wins (47% s/r) and a resulting POT of 42%.
....It sounds a lot of filters - but for me it is all about risk reduction - and it seems to be working well. I guess this stems from the fact that I am putting much more money on the selections now and am happy to wait for a full qualifying bet.
I'm also still using your selections to bet on the top two in selected races. This gives me more action at much reduced bets and is mildly profitable as well.
I've just processed my renewal and look forward to another great 12 months.
PS - feel free to put any or all of this on your website"
Thank you very much Keith. If you are a genuinely serious about purchasing our betting package, Keith is prepared to communicate with you before purchase.

I note we also struck some good exotics Ė time unfortunately doesnít allow me to have a crack at these now. Congratulations and well done on a terrific effort Ė I think you will be hard pressed to surpass a $7.00 Super Special, but please donít stop trying. Regards, Peter"

"Yes that's fine. I am a great fan of the
website. I subscribed to the AFL package and have recently subscribed
to the tennis package. All I can say is that I'm glad I stumbled across
the smartgambler.com.au website.

What a ripper !! Down the dreaded "straight six" as well - what a beautiful irony. I backed Cosmic Strike, Strategic Image and Golden Delicious to win. I wasn't sure which one to barrack for. I even jagged 5% of the First Four ( it paid $22,563.20 on TAB Limited ); missed the trifecta though. A lot of Hawkes horses were heavily backed on the day too.
I'll say congratulations once again Neil. With patience and discipline,
coupled with the great information you provide, you can certainly strike
some value win bets and exotics. Good luck today.
After a year using our Action package, Peter purchased a High Flyer package early in 2002.
I do applaud your commonsense and practical approach to punting. I am wondering why you rate races with 16+ horses? Even though these races may be rated VP (Very Poor) or P (Poor), generally there would be more horses with a good chance of winning. I realise the odds may be a lot better with a big open field, and it is up to each member what they do with the ratings supplied. However, I feel the chance, not odds, of getting a winner is much lower (risk management) than smaller fields.
I bet on to win and first four punting. Currently, I am only punting
on races up to 14 horses.
Thanks for your time Neil. Luv ya work!

As I am the CEO of a publicly listed company I would prefer not to go public on a website with a testimonial. However I would be happy to speak one on one with anyone considering purchasing a package.
As I said to Neil, I have a keen interest in horse racing as a sport, enjoy a punt as an intellectual and personal challenge and do not have the time to even attempt to do serious form myself.
Your service makes it easy for me to get well researched ratings backed
by guidance on smart betting strategies. It has added considerably to
my enjoyment of racing and betting and is well priced and worth it on
this basis, let alone the potential winnings available from applying your
ratings and betting strategies in a disciplined way. Backing a winner
I would be happy to make these points and endorse your service to anyone who you refer to me. If it helps you can quote some of the above comments on your website without naming me personally. If someone calls and wants to talk to me about the comments I will confirm them."

A return of 130 units on an outlay of 21 units was simply an awesome result ! Small bets on these allowed me to end the day well in front for what was a difficult day for the punter - especially in Melbourne. Thanks again.

I'm only on trial at the moment with your Excitement Package, however after Saturday I would like to join your subscription service for a year . Could you please send me the relevant details? Once again, thank you.

I joined your excellent service about 4 weeks ago, (High Flyers on 27/4/01) but unfortunately due to family reasons and travel interstate on two weekends I have not been able to fully use it until last Saturday, 19/5/01, when Neil's Gold and Dragon selections had 6 winners for the day. I also noted from the weekly newsletters that I had missed out on one or two big winners during the previous weeks.
I am really looking forward to taking full advantage of my membership, which I will be extending. Your service and information is very professional and first rate. Keep up the good work.
Regards and best wishes, Paul Hayes."

"Neil, many congratulations on Padstow and Zodiac Star (and Lady Mulan and Assertive Lad). My subscription is paid for already. Well done.
Your advice on how to use the ratings has been very well received. I'm mainly using the ratings for quinellas and will probably also end up doing exactas and trifectas as well. Your article on TAB Limited trifectas has slightly dampened my enthusiasm for them though.
I certainly agree with your comment that the Horse Watch information is too good to be given away free. I've come to that conclusion very quickly and definitely support what you are doing. I'm very glad that I stumbled upon your web site.
"Thanks for the great variety of winners yesterday, starting off with Lady Mulan, Century Kid, Padstow and Assertive Lad and along with the trifecta in race 4, numbers 3,10 and 5 being past runners from your HorseWatch.
This is a wonderful service, keep up the good work. To all you out there reading this, I hope you have benefitted like I have.

"Just a quick note to you and all the team to say thanks for the information I've been receiving. I've been using Horsewatch for a while as a bit of a preview to taking a package with you.
As a consequence of being patient and having faith that there will be some great performances in your Horsewatch runners, I took only five bets from Saturdays Horsewatch. Among those was Barossa Broadway, which gave me the largest return I've ever had. If I was happy with it then I can't imagine how you blokes must feel, actually making these selections on a regular basis.
Ironically, I read in the forum the comments from the guest saying "I hope your page bombs out" in response to the post from management. Fair dinkum, I guess you don't need to have a handle to be a mug! I'm tippin' he didn't have anything on Barossa Broadway or similar horses that you've supplied in the past.
Anyway keep it up, your page and your service is first class, you blokes are freaks. I'm looking forward to taking a package with you shortly.
Thanks. Dan O'Neill."

"Hi Neil. I must congratulate you and your team for again finding longshot winners in your Jackpot selections.
My selection methods from your Jackpot list gave me three bets for the day - Shaanxi (winner at $15.50), My Bonnie Can (winner at $25.60) and Newington Style which finished just behind the placegetters.
I don't know how you do it - the first two horses I'd never heard of yet both looked winners a long way out. Obviously your analysis is superior to anything around - especially given that you gave only three jackpot selections for the races containing the above winners. My Bonnie Can gave me my biggest ever single bet collect. Thankyou !
Best Regards, Keith Hentschke"
