Alex Hammond Tips – Full Review


Alex Hammond is the resident tipster on Sky Sports News and she provides one tip per day for the punting public.

At the start of the trial, we were curious to see whether her tips were any good and would deliver any profit.

Well at the end of three months we are pleased to say that Alex has managed to rack up an impressive 38 points of profit to 1 point level stakes.

Here are the results for the trial in graph format:

As you can see, pretty steady profit growth throughout the trial.

And that was with a strike rate of 32% and using a 50 point bank, meant a 76% growth in the bank over the three months.

And best of all, the tips are completely FREE! 

You just need to check the Sky Sports site each day for the tips.

So with some stellar results and being super-easy to follow, we are happy to give Alex Hammond’s tips a recommended rating.


Service Breakdown

Ease of use: As stated above, very simple to follow with just one tip per day. 

Availability of prices: The advised prices were under no great pressure and this is certainly no Tom Segal or Hugh Taylor situation. Indeed, at Betfair SP we actually slightly beat the advised prices, with 41 points profit being recorded.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 32%, which is pretty decent and means losing streaks were kept to a minimum.   

Advised Betting Bank: No betting bank was advised, but we used a 50 point bank for the trial, which seemed plenty enough to take account of any losing runs. 

Subscription costs: The best thing about the service – FREE! 



It is not often we have a positive trial of one of the popular tipsters in the press or on TV, so we are pleased to say that Alex Hammond has passed with flying colours.

Managing to amass 41 points profit at Betfair SP is no mean feat and with a return on investment of 44%, it was a strong trial for Ms Hammond.

With just one tip per day it is a very easy service to follow and with it being free, you really can’t complain.

Let’s hope Alex can continue this kind of form in the long run, but for now we are content to give her tips a recommended rating.

Alex Hammond Tips – New Review

20th May 2016

If you have watched Sky Sports News over the years, you will no doubt have seen the lovely Alex Hammond providing expert analysis and tips for the day’s horse racing.

As I was sitting watching the other day, I wondered how successful Alex was with her tipping.

Certainly she seems to have a very thorough knowledge of the sport and is clearly not just there to brighten up our screens.

However, can her horse racing knowledge translate into success in the tipping game?

Well we thought it was time to find out by running a trial of Alex Hammond’s tips here at Honest Betting Reviews.

So we will record her tips each day and see how she performs under the spotlight of a live trial.

Alex’s involvement with horses began at an early age, competing in showjumping events as a junior. She worked in the Shadwell stud of Sheikh Hamden, before moving to the yard of trainers Jack and Lynda Ramsden. 

She also has some experience as a jockey, having ridden in over 50 amateur flat races and was placed in a race at Royal Ascot.

And of course she has been married to jockey Richard Quinn since 2007.

So all in all Alex seems to have excellent “pedigree” as they say and should have good prospects of making a profit in the tipping game.

However, we have seen lots of examples over the years of horse racing experts who sadly haven’t been able to find a winning edge when it came to providing tips.

Let’s hope Alex Hammond is an exception and can put all her horse racing expertise to good use by finding us some winners over the trial.

We will provide regular updates on how things go during the trial.

In the meantime you can check out Alex Hammond’s tips here.
