About Us

Turf Deli provides detailed form guides as well as light hearted articles of questionable sanity.

There are no claims of easy money, get rich quick schemes or selective memory when it comes to results.

What is provided is argumentative, critical and of course, extremely opinionated form analysis for the serious form students, broken up with witty banter galore for the casual Spring Carnival Punter.

Turf Deli commenced in 1999 and runs a spring campaign every year commencing mid August.

Turf Deli Spring Campaign 2022

Every year for the last 20 years we have pumped out a weekly newsletter for around 20 meetings from August to November, with a detailed form guide for the main race, race tips, a suggested betting portfolio, and done our best to misinform the public with the latest racing “news”.

Which is a utterly ridiculous amount of work – but also a lot of fun. This year we are going to cut things down a fair bit, and just run a Mini Turf Deli.

We will still cover all the feature meetings, but we will only be posting tips on Facebook and Twitter , with no newsletters mailed out.

There will be suggested bets and the extremely popular weekly $50 Betting Portfolio, but no detailed main race preview.

Moonee Valley Stars on the Big Screen

We delcare an undying love for the old school tote boards.
Those long, big and bulky monoliths, that hold your punting fate in their hands as you nervously wait for a number to flash up in a tight finish. Hang on - is that a 6 or an 8 ? A 4 maybe ?


Kerry Packer's Sandown

Together Sandown and VFL Park formed the pride of 1960's construction, and prime examples of what you could do with an awful lot of concrete and a few pie warmers in empty paddocks in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.


Flemington Track Guide

Everything you need to know to survive Cup Week on course.


150 Years of the Melbourne Cup - Part One

Over the next week the airwaves will be inundated with epic, sepia toned, historical flashbacks of the Cup Greats, voiced by over Australianised narrators to coincide with the 150th Melbourne Cup.


150 Years of the Melbourne Cup - Part Two

The Cup changed forever in 1927 with the birth of a bouncy, eye browed baby boy named James Bartholomew Cummings. Disappointingly he failed to even have a Cup runner, yet alone win a Cup in his first year of life


Jockey Adoption Program

Come Spring time these cute little cuddly fellas are always so popular. Everyone wants one or wants to look like one at the fancy dress Melbourne Cup BBQ. But you need to remember a jockey is not just for Spring Carnival.


Ever Changing Names

This is the race that you will often hear trainers warmly refer to in interviews about their up and coming spring stars as "that Group 1 1400M race - whatever it is called this year".
