Tipsters Profile

SAM AGARS

Form Guide Edtior

Sam's passion for racing received a kick-start when he was trackside to see Road Worker win the 2007 Balaklava Cup in country South Australia - perhaps not a huge moment in racing history but one that left an indelible mark on a young punter. He covered racing in South Australia before moving to Hong Kong in 2014.

TRENTON AKERS

Racing Writer

Trenton gained a love for all things racing after working for a bookmaker as a young kid in his home town of Cairns, Australia before taking up a job at The Courier-Mail in Brisbane while covering the country racing circuit. He loves on-pace runners that give themselves every chance when the whips are cracking. Big believer in keeping it simple when assessing races - the clock never lies.
