Cheltenham 2020 – Day Three Diary

I am tracking my results from this year’s Cheltenham festival here on the blog and the first two days went very well, with a profit made on both days.

Onto day three then and there were some cracking races on the card today.

Just a reminder that I am using a twofold strategy this week, which is:

1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser; and

2. Use two of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing and the Bet Alchemist – to find the best bets for Cheltenham. Both have excellent records at the festival so I am following their tips for the week.

By combining the above two together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy get on today? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day Three Results

After a good start on the first two days with a profit of £123, I was hoping to continue the progress today.

So here are my results from Thursday at Cheltenham – and what a day it was! My stakes were £20 per point once again.

 

1.30 – Marsh Novices Chase

A losing start to the day with Bet Alchemist’s tip Itchy Feet finishing unplaced but I got half the stake back from Skybet. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£10

 

2.10 – Pertemps Network Final

No bets in this race from either tipster – but things were about to liven up…

Profit/Loss from Race: £0

 

2.50 – Ryanair Chase

Quentin’s only runner of the day bolted up to deliver our first winner of Thursday as Min won by just a neck at 6/1 advised ante-post (5/2 on the day). The Bet Alchemist’s tip in this race did not place.  

Profit/Loss from Race: +£100

 

3.30 – Paddy Power Stayers Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race and it was on Summerville Boy from the Bet Alchemist, which sadly finished 5th so a loss here.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

4.10 – Stable Plate Handicap

No bets from Quentin on this one but two from the Bet Alchemist, with one placing at 12/1 in the form of Ben Dundee, whilst the other selection Simply the Betts romped home to land a nice winner at 7/1. 

Profit/Loss from Race: +£180

 

4.50 – Mares Novices Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist then followed it up with another winner in the next race with Concertista, which I backed at 5/1 (advised price 11/2).

Profit/Loss from Race: +£120

 

5.30 – Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase

The Bet Alchemist was unlucky not to follow it up with yet another winner in the last, with 12/1 ante-post pick Kilfilum Cross finishing second for each-way returns. His other pick finished well down the field. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£26

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: +£344

So a cracking day in the end, with the luck finally going our way and three winners on the day. An excellent profit of £344 on the day, taking my total profit for the week to £467.

The festival wraps up tomorrow with the feature race being the Gold Cup, so let’s hope for more of the same and to finish off a great week in style.

Just a note to say I am attending a special Cheltenham day out tomorrow (not at the course itself but a venue with big screens, food and drink etc which should be a lot of fun) so I probably won’t be able to post tomorrow’s results until later in the weekend. 

Enjoy the last day of the festival though wherever you are and I hope you’ve had a good week too. 

 

 

 

 

Cheltenham 2020 – Day Two Diary

After a positive first day of Cheltenham I was hoping things would carry over to Day Two on Wednesday. 

Just a reminder I am tracking my results from this year’s festival using a twofold strategy, which is:

1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser; and

2. Use two of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing and the Bet Alchemist – to find the best bets for Cheltenham. Both have excellent records at the festival so I am following their tips for the week.

By combining the above two together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy get on today? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day Two Results

After yesterday’s profit of £93 it was a quieter day today for us at the festival but there were still some highlights to enjoy. 

So here are the results from Wednesday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point.

 

1.30 Ballymore Novices Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race, from the Bet Alchemist and it finished well down the pack. Fortunately I got half my stake back from Skybet. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£10

 

2.10 RSA Chase

Quentin’s only selection of the day Minella Indo ran in this race and unluckily for us finished second, beaten just a length. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£40

 

2.50 Coral Cup Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist landed a very nice winner with Dame De Compagnie romping home for Nicky Henderson at a tasty 13/2 for me (with Unibet’s bet boost). It could have been even better though – his other tip, Black Tears, finished second at 16/1! A reverse forecast on those two would have delivered a bumper profit but as it was we were happy to settle for some tidy returns from the race.  

Profit/Loss from Race: £100

 

3.30 Queen Mother Champion Chase

No bets in this race. Probably a good thing with the red-hot favourite getting turned over.

Profit/Loss from Race: £0

 

4.10 Glenfarclas Chase

No bets in this race either.

Profit/Loss from Race: £0

 

4.50 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

No bets in this race once again!

Profit/Loss from Race: £0

 

5.30 Champion Bumper

Just the one bet in this race with Five Par Brian finishing well down the field for the Bet Alchemist.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: +£30

As I say a quiet day with not many bets, but a profit is a profit so we can’t complain. It was a day of what might have been in the end, with a couple of very close calls just missing out. 

Let’s hope for more profits tomorrow but with a bit more action to enjoy!

 

 

 

 

Cheltenham races

Cheltenham 2020 – Day One Diary

So day one of this year’s Cheltenham festival is over and I just thought I would do a quick update on my own results from the day.

My strategy this year is twofold:

1. Take advantage of all the bookies’ offers and bonuses this week.

There are some fantastic offers this week with extra places, money back and free bets being thrown around by the bookies like confetti. I am using Profit Maximiser to see each day’s offers and make sure I use them to extract the most profit possible.

2. Use some top tipsters.

I am using two of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing and the Bet Alchemist – to find the best bets for Cheltenham. Both have excellent records at the festival so I am following their tips for the week.

By combining the above two together, this should give me a great chance of beating the bookies at Cheltenham.

So how did this strategy get on today? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day One Results

So here are the results from Tuesday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point.

The highlight of the day was undoubtedly a 25/1 winner (antepost) from Quentin Franks, but more on that below.

1.30 Supreme Novices Hurdle

The day got off to a bit of a frustrating start, with Bet Alchemist pick Abracadabras just getting collared on the line to deny us an opening win to the festival. We at least got some each-way returns from that pick though.   

The good thing about the first race of the day is that there are a number of bookies offering money back if your horse loses – Skybet £10 and Betfair £20. So part of my stakes on Asterion Forlonge, which both tipsters chose, were covered by that.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£26

 

2.10 Arkle Challenge

Just one bet in this race and that was Brewin’upastorm  from the Bet Alchemist which went down to defeat unfortunately. No refunds or offers from the bookies on this one.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

2.50 Ultima Handicap Chase

This was the race where it all happened and we were in for a treat with a 1-2 from our bets. If you were sharp enough to back Quentin’s tip The Conditional at 25/1 when he advised it then you had a sensational win. Sadly I missed that so only managed to secure nines but that was still a very nice win. 

Bet Alchemist’s tip Kildisart was a close second netting some each-way returns whilst their other bet in the race was a loser.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£170

 

3.30 Champion Hurdle

Just the one bet in this race and it was on Supersundae which unfortunately was nowhere so a loss in this one. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

4.10 Mares Hurdle

No official bets in this race but I did a reverse forecast on the top two at just over evens which won fairly comfortably.

Profit/Loss from Race: +£24

 

4.50 Novices Handicap Chase

Three bets in this one and thankfully one of them landed a place, with Hold the Note coming in 3rd for the Bet Alchemist. So a loss on this race. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£35

 

There were no bets in the final race of the day – although interestingly Quentin tipped the winner Ravenhill in another race Antepost but then it was switched to this race instead, so it was a shame Quentin didn’t give it out again for the last race as it won at 12/1!

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: +£93

So a good first day overall and well done to Quentin on an excellent winner in the Ultima Handicap Chase – just a pity I didn’t back it ante-post at 25/1! 

A few near misses from the Bet Alchemist today so let’s hope the luck turns for him tomorrow.

Football Trading Webinars – 2019/20 Season Sign-Up

Last season we undertook a review of Football Trading Webinars run by a team of professional traders and they performed excellently, making just under £2,000 profit with a very high strike rate.

We weren’t sure if they were going to offer the webinars again this season or just focus on their own trading, but we are delighted to announce they have decided to run the webinars again.

This is great news as we thought the trading webinars were highly valuable and it would have been a shame not to have them available again. 

However, what they are looking to do is work with a smaller group this time of around 20-30 people who are committed to learning how to trade like a professional and to understand the strategies. 

This will allow them to devote more time to making sure people really benefit from the webinars and not only profit from following them directly but members can then apply the strategies to their own trading and thereby increase their profits. So this will be about developing an elite group of traders rather than opening it up to “the masses.”

Membership will be strictly limited and on a first-come-first-served basis. The webinars are due to commence on Monday 16th September and you can secure your place now to ensure you don’t miss out. 

There is a 50% discount for the first month before the subscription reverts to the full monthly amount of £69.99 per month. You can join below:




The webinars are only really suitable if you have some experience with trading and are familiar with trading software such as Geeks Toy, Bet Angel etc.

If you are new to trading, we would recommend a trading course which is also offered by the same team and includes a series of guides, video tutorials, example trades and explanations of how to use  trading software. If you are interested in that, please drop us an e-mail at info@honestbettingreviews.com and we will provide further details.

Big Hands Racing – Results Update

It’s been a sticky time for Big Hands Racing since our last update, with 40 points lost at advised prices.

That puts them 22 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP things are somewhat worse, with 61 points lost since our last update, putting them 31 points down for our trial overall at BSP.

A couple of weeks ago they decided to suspend the service for the time being due to family commitments. They are due to return at the end of October for the start of the AW season, so let’s hope the break will do them good and they will return in fine fettle. 

In the mean time we will put the review into abeyance and picks things up again if and when they return.

Big Hands Racing – Results Update

21st June 2019

Big Hands Racing has been in excellent form lately, adding another 33 points profit at advised prices since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 62 points up at advised prices for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP the results have been exactly half as good, with a profit of 31 points made for our trial overall – and 30 points profit made since our last update. 

Let’s hope they can keep things going and continue the strong recent form. 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Big Hands Racing – Results Update

16th May 2019

It’s been a small step backwards for Big Hands Racing since our last update, with a loss of 8 points over the last month to advised prices.

They are still well up for our trial overall though, with 29 points profit made so far to advised prices.

You can view full results here.

The drop at Betfair SP has been a little more dramatic however, with a loss of 27 points since our last update, leaving them just 1 point up at BSP for our trial overall. 

It will be interesting to see whether the gap that has opened up between the advised price results and BSP will be maintained or is just a blip, so we will keep an eye on that going forward.

Big Hands Racing – Results Update

11th April 2019

It’s been a very good start to our trial of Big Hands Racing, with 37 points profit made so far to advised prices.

You can view full results here.

It has also been a good start at Betfair SP, with a profit of 28 points made for our trial to date. 

The majority of bets are each-way, which is good for keeping the bank ticking over and some place returns coming in whilst you wait for the big winners.

A nice start then for Big Hands, let’s see if they can keep it up.

Big Hands Racing – New Review

6th March 2019

Today we are starting a new review of an interestingly-named tipster from the Sports Betting Stars stable. 

This one is called “Big Hands Racing” and to be honest we are not quite sure what is behind the name. Perhaps it is some reference to Donald Trump and his small hands, or winning big hands-full of cash.

Either way, the service looks very promising, with 189 points profit apparently made since starting tipping back in September 2018.

That has been achieved with a whopping return on investment of over 40% and a strike rate of just under 30%.

The service is run by a guy called Dean and he describes himself as a method tipster.

He says he uses a process of elimination to get his results i.e, draw and pace analysis before he even looks at the form.

Dean has been gambling on horses using tipsters for 20 years with some success but given his skills he recently decided to start his own tipping service.

So far five out of six months have been profitable which is obviously a very good ratio and if replicated over the long term would be extremely welcome.

Although this tipster is relatively new the results do look promising so we’ll be interested to see how it gets on during our trial. 

We started receiving tips on 1st March so will record results from then and results will be updated on this page at regular intervals during the trial. 

In the meantime you can check out Big Hands Racing for yourself here.

Quentin Franks Racing – Four Year Update

One of the first services we reviewed here at Honest Betting Reviews was Quentin Franks Racing and it’s now been over four years since we started following his tips. 

When we last updated our review a couple of years ago, Quentin had made over 800 points profit to that point, a quite exceptional effort and well worthy of our award of five stars.

How has he done since then however? Has Quentin been able to continue that kind of consistent excellence? 

Well the good news is yes, he certainly has!

Since we last updated our review back in May 2017, Quentin has made another 400 points profit.

That means since we started proofing his tips back in March 2015, Mr Franks has banked a colossal 1240 points profit. That would be over £12,400 profit to £10 stakes or £31,000 profit to £25 stakes. 

That puts him in the very elite of tipsters who have broken the 1,000 point barrier and amongst the pantheon of all-time great professional gamblers. 

If you’d started out with a £1,000 bank when the service began it would now be worth well over £13,000. And if you’d started out with a £10,000 bank it would be worth over £130,000. Not bad for a few minutes work a day!

Even at just £10 stakes the average monthly profit stands at over £220 profit and the return on investment has been stellar at over 19%.

And as if all that is not enough, Quentin also runs the popular QF Value Tips service, which focuses on finding value the evening before racing and has made over 500 points profit in its own right!

So there is no doubt Mr Franks is one of the very best tipsters in the game and fully deserving of his massive following.  

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Overall then we have no hesitation in continuing to award Quentin Franks Racing a PASSED rating and a five star recommendation. 

And the great news is you can get a 15 day trial for just £1.99 here.

Quentin Franks Racing – Two Year Update

7th May 2017

We have now been following the tips of Quentin Franks Racing for over two years, so thought it would be a good time for an update.

At the time of our last update just over a year ago, we awarded Quentin a five star rating, with 284 points profit having been made in that year.

Well since then, Quentin has put on the afterburners and exceeded even those exceptional levels, notching up well over 550 points profit.

That means since we started proofing the tips in March 2015, the service has made over 800 points profit. 

You probably don’t need us to tell you that is quite incredible stuff! 

To just £10 stakes that would be over £8,000 profit or if you are able to stake higher at £25 per point, it would be £20,000 profit.

Here is a look at the results in graph format since we started proofing the tips:

Quentin Franks Racing Profit Graph

As you can see, just an amazingly smooth and steady upward curve – exactly what every investor is looking for! 

Back when we updated this last year, we upgraded Quentin Franks to be our number one recommended tipster.

We have absolutely no reason to change that – in fact our view of the service has only been strengthened in that time.

Out of the last 21 months, an astonishing 19 have been profitable.

That is a record of consistency most tipsters can only dream of.

A truly brilliant service and one that has made us a rather substantial amount of money from following his tips – thank you Quentin! 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED 

We are running out of superlatives to describe Quentin Franks Racing so instead we will simply say this: if you are not already a member, we strongly suggest you sign up today.

It’s a decision we doubt you will regret.

Quentin Franks Racing – One Year Update

28th March 2016

As it is now a year since we started proofing Quentin Franks Racing tips, we thought it would be a good time to provide an update on how things have been going.

Our original three month trial concluded in June 2015 with a neutral rating and 6 points of profit accumulated.

However, things have really taken off since then for Quentin.

Here are the monthly totals since the trial concluded in June last year:

  • July: +9 points profit
  • August: +32 points profit
  • September: +40 points profit
  • October: +26 points profit
  • November: +30 points profit
  • December: +93 points profit
  • January: -11 points loss
  • February: +29 points profit
  • March: +36 points profit

So a highly impressive 284 points profit since our trial ended nine months ago.

And eight winning months out of nine – not bad either!

Here is the profit graph for the last nine months:

Quentin Franks Racing Profit Graph

As you can see, a mightily impressive profit graph with solid, steady growth – just what we want to see.

Over the last nine months we have seen bank growth of 284% – so if you had started with a bank of £1,000 it would now be worth £3,840. 

Or if you had started with a bank of £10,000 it would now be worth £38,400.

Overall these results have been achieved with a strike rate of 25% and a return on investment of 17%, which is very respectable indeed.

Conclusion

With superb results since our trial ended nine months ago, we have no hesitation in upgrading Quentin Franks Racing to a passed rating.

This is definitely one to subscribe to whilst you still can – there are very few tipsters out there with as consistent a record as Quentin Franks and this is the sort of service that can make you steady profits month after month.

Highly recommended.

Rating: 5 stars

We have completed our three month trial of Quentin Franks Racing and here are the results:

 

Profit/loss:+6 points
Strike Rate:23%
Bank Growth:6%

Quentin Franks Racing Final Review

The third in our series of Betting Gods trials is complete. So how did Quentin Franks Racing compare to the likes of Master Racing Tipster and Big Race Bookie Busters?

Well unfortunately it hasn’t done quite so well, ending up with figures of 6 points profit at advised prices and -41 points at Betfair SP.

We had high hopes for Quentin as coming into this trial he had amassed over 180 points of profit and racked up nine winning months out of nine.

But sadly as we see often with tipsters, it is difficult to keep up with the top form indefinitely and at some point there will be a dip.

That said, making 6 points profit at advised prices is no disaster so we are not ready to write off Mr Franks just yet. 

Anyway, here are the results of the trial in graph format:

Quentin Franks Racing Final Profit Graph

As you can see, quite topsy-turvy! But actually the fluctuations weren’t that large, varying between 17 points up or down over the course of the trial.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Fairly good – there are on average 3 bets per day which are normally sent around 9am (British time). It shouldn’t take too long to place the bets.

Availability of prices: OK – prices do tend to go fairly quickly and certainly by race time you are looking at considerably lower prices. This is evidence by the big 50 point difference between the advised results and Betfair SP results.

So you want to get your bets on quickly to achieve the best prices.

Strike rate: The strike rate was 23% for the trial, which is close to the long-term average of 25%. 

Advised Betting Bank: The advised betting bank is 100 points, which seems reasonable. Staking is 1 or 2 points with the very occasional 3 point bet.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are acceptable at £1 for the first month then £39.95 per month or £99.95 per quarter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL  

The bar has been set very high recently with the achievements of Master Racing Tipster and Big Race Bookie Busters, so perhaps we shouldn’t judge every service by their high standards.

We had high expectations for Quentin Franks Racing coming into the trial and whilst he hasn’t quite delivered what we were hoping, he has not had a disaster either. 

Given the impressive long-term record, we will place this in the neutral category for now and see if Quentin can recapture his previous form over the coming months.

Expo Bot

Expo Bot – Results Update

It’s been a tough run over the last month for the Expo Bot, with a loss of 237 points for the Auto Dutch system since our last update.

That puts the Auto Dutch system 284 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

The big news however – which is hot off the press – is that Expo Bot is moving to the cloud rather than being operated on a desktop.

This in our view will be a big improvement and will mean everything will be fully automatic rather than having to set up a VPS (or have your PC running all day), download a desktop app, install updates to the software, check for bugs if it isn’t working properly etc. All of that will now be handled remotely on the cloud, so a much simpler customer experience.

The Auto Dutch system is also being paused for now and is scheduled to resume running on the cloud in September, which will contain enhanced performance filters. They say they have enough data accumulated now to bring this to final version in the next update.

So in terms of this review, we will call it a day for now and say that this was unfortunately heading for a failed rating based on the results achieved to date. We will commence a new review once the new cloud software with the new parameters launches, which will hopefully not only be really simple to operate but produce better results as well. 

This new version of the Expo Bot is also due to have football trading added to it, so we will include that in our review when it is available later this year.

So that’s it for this review for now but we look forward to seeing the relaunch in September.

Expo Bot – Results Update

8th July 2019

A bit of a recovery for the Expo Bot lately, with a profit of 95 points for the Auto Dutch system since our last update. 

That means the Auto Dutch is now 47 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

We missed a couple of days of bets with the bot not working for one reason or another. The problem may well have been at our end with not having downloaded the latest version but we couldn’t be sure. There are still a few teething problems as the bot gets puts through its paces but hopefully over the next couple of months these issues will all be ironed out. 

They have made an adjustment to the Auto Dutch system, removing Mondays from betting days which would have considerably improved the results so far and makes sense given that Mondays are often poor in terms of the quality of racing.

As mentioned last time we stopped proofing the in-play betting system as it is being completely revamped. 

Anyway, good to see the recent recovery for the Auto Dutch and let’s hope it continues. 

 

 

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Expo Bot – Results Update

11th June 2019

The tough run has continued for the Expo Bot unfortunately, with a further 11 points lost since our last update.

That means the Bot is now 35 points down for our trial overall (or £350 down to £10 stakes). 

You can view full results here

We have stopped monitoring the In-Play Betting System as they are completely overhauling it and pretty much starting from scratch, so there didn’t seem much point continuing following a version of something that isn’t going to be used going forward. 

In terms of the Auto-Dutch system, it has also been a rough spell lately. We are operating it continuously over the evening rather than on a stop-at-a-profit basis. If you had been using the latter you would be 7 points down over the period of our review rather than the 14 points down we are from letting it run. That is to be expected really given that you would be betting in fewer races.

In the grand scheme of things the losses aren’t too bad and represent just 14% of the advised betting bank, but we had been hoping for more from this system so it is a little disappointing.

It is important to remember at the same time that everything is still in beta testing mode at the moment so this is just the beginning for Exponential Bet and they have got a number of promising things in development so let’s see how they progress over the coming weeks and months.

 

 

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Expo Bot – Results Update

8th May 2019

It’s been a bit of a rough ride lately for the Expo Bot, with 18 points lost since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 24 points down for our trial overall (or £240 down at the £10 stakes we are using) for the two systems – the In-Play trading and Auto-Dutch systems. 

You can view full results here (please note there are two tabs on the spreadsheet for the two systems).

However, that doesn’t really tell the whole story as it is the In-Play system that has really been struggling, losing 21 points so far, whilst the Auto Dutch has been doing ok.

To be fair the In-Play system is still in beta mode and Ryan who runs the service is working on some changes to the process which should improve results. 

In the meantime we would recommend putting it on hold if you are running this system until the new changes have been introduced and bedded in. We will still record results of course because that is what a live trial is all about, but Ryan has been clear from the outset that this was in beta mode so results could be volatile whilst he finds the optimal parameters for it.

Meanwhile the Auto-Dutch system has been working better, with a small profit made since our last update.

We are also pleased to report that we are now running the bot on a VPS and it has been running much more smoothly on that, although does need occasional checking as I missed a few days whilst away on holiday and the bot didn’t automatically refresh each day – but seems to be doing so now.

Anyway, Ryan has also been working on some new systems which sound very interesting, including some auto-trade software which we are intrigued by. 

So whilst it has been a little bumpy with the Expo Bot lately, there is still plenty of time left in our trial and we are very hopeful about developments for the Exponential Bet service going forward. 

 

 

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Expo Bot – Results Update

10th April 2019

It’s been a tough start to our trial of the Expo Bot, both in terms of results and getting it to work properly.

In terms of results, we are currently 6 points down (or £60 down to the £10 stakes we are using) combined for the In-Play trading and Auto Dutch systems. 

You can view full results here (please note there are two tabs on the spreadsheet for the two systems).

It should be stressed however that these are not comprehensive results for the Bot because (as alluded to) we have had some problems running it and haven’t been able to place all the trades.

Some of these problems it seems were at our end and some at the developer’s end, as we are now on the fourth version of the bot due to some technical issues.

This is to be expected really with a new piece of software like this which is quite sophisticated and it should be stressed that the Bot is still in beta mode at the moment before being officially released as an “end product” if you like. 

Hopefully most of the teething problems have been ironed out now and it will be smoother sailing from here on in. 

In terms of the results, whilst they have been a little disappointing thus far, the losses haven’t been too bad in the grand scheme of things and they have coincided with the “limbo period” of the jumps season ending and the flat season starting, so that could explain things at least partially. 

Anyway it’s early days and still plenty of time to get into profit so let’s see where we are after our next update.

Expo Bot – New Review

12th March 2019

We have previously reviewed two systems from Exponential Bet – their In-Play Betting System and their Dutch betting strategy – both of which received passed ratings after performing very well during live trials here on the site. 

Today we are starting a trial of a new and exciting piece of kit they have developed, namely their Expo Bot. 

This is a betting bot that enables complete automation of two of their strategies – i.e. the In-Play Betting System we reviewed previously and their relatively newer Automated Dutch betting system. 

Both of these are strategies for betting/trading on horse racing on Betfair that Exponential Bet have developed over time with a good deal of work. 

Just to give an idea of the figures, the Automated Dutch system has so far made £471 profit to just £10 stakes from 65 betting days since going live whilst the In-Play Betting System has made £1012 profit from £10 stakes since going live almost exactly a year ago. 

So combined these strategies have done very well indeed and made substantial profits with pretty low stakes. 

Now the beauty of the situation is that the Expo Bot allows them to be implemented completely automatically on Betfair. You just need to set up the bot, enter your chosen stake and settings and let it do its thing. 

Whilst up until now there was a degree of automation available with the strategies, there was still some manual work that needed doing and the use of an external bot such as the Bet Engine or Fairbot. 

Having it all completely automated from end to end through the Expo Bot is a big improvement in our view though and we are looking forward to testing the bot out.

We have set it up and started the Bot running so are already placing bets and can report it is all working well. 

If results end up being as good as those achieved to date then this will be a great way of making some extra income, all on auto-pilot.

Plus we see the possibility of really growing the bank over time by using progressive staking rather than just flat staking. 

Anyway, let’s see how things go first during our live trial before we get ahead of ourselves. We will record results here during the trial so please watch out for updates on how the review progresses. 

Just a note that if you are not already a member of the Auto Dutch or In-Play Betting services then you will need to sign up to those as well as the Expo Bot. However you can get them all in one package – see the red box with “Expo Bot All in One Promotion” towards the bottom of the sign-up page. 

You can check out the Expo Bot for yourself here.

It’s called the Wizard of Big Odds and the results are so good you might think it’s magic. The truth is whatever they are doing it is working superbly.

We haven’t actually reviewed this service but have trialled a number of Tipsters Empire services before and always found their results to be honest and transparent. Plus the service has been proofed elsewhere and has created a huge buzz in the betting community so we have no doubt the results are real.

Noel Fehily – A Tale of Triumph Over Adversity

Noel Fehily is now a well-known highly successful jockey, but he didn’t achieve success overnight. It was a long haul to get to where he is now and the fact that he got there is evidence of his perseverance. His has been a tale of triumph over adversity – of which there has been much!

Fehily is a quiet-mannered man; indeed, he has come under criticism for being too laid back; too willing to take a back seat. Which could be one of the reasons why it took him so long to find success.

He spent twelve or more years mainly in the backwaters before breaking through, but once he did break through there is no stopping him. Today he is one of the leading go-to jockeys for a host of trainers. And little wonder- he has followed success by success and is considered by many to be one of the best of the best.  

Born in 1976, at Macroom, County Cork, the son of a farmer, his early experience was gained on point to point races. From the point to point circuit he graduated to hunter chases and decided that it was going to be his future.

He moved to England and for some time rode as an amateur jockey. On 16th November 1998, he scored his first win riding Ivy Boy at Plumpton. He then went on to ride 12 winners during his first campaign and the following season added two more taking his total to 17 by the end of the season.

In 2005 he began riding for Jonjo O’Neil as his second jockey; at the time he was also riding for Charlie Mann where his greatest win was in the Punchestown Novice Chase in 2008. He also rode for Paul Nicholls as a stand-in for Ruby Walsh.

In 2009 he ended the season in fourth place on the Jockey’s table with 89 winners under his saddle. He also netted a little over £900,000 in prize money. This was the breakthrough season for Fehily, and many consider that this was the point from which his career really took off.

In 2012 he began riding for Emma Lavelle Racing as her first jockey and started his new move with two rides at Ascot. His strike rate was astonishing, with 21% winners on Lavelle’s horses. He also rode for Roger Brookhouse and won the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle for him on Summerville Boy.

Fehily in action at Newbury

Throughout his career, he has been haunted by injury including injuries to both shoulders, a broken leg, and various wrist injuries which put him out on the sidelines for nearly two years. The 20010/11 season was particularly unfortunate as he rode in just 150 races, and it wasn’t until 2014/15 that he picked up again on his form. That season he rode 127 winners, the first time he had broken through the 100 winners in a single season barrier, collecting £1.3 million prize money.

The 2015/16 season was similarly successful. Despite riding just 85 winners, season prize money was £1.5 million. But injury still plagued him. Riding at the Cheltenham Festival in 2015 he received a nasty shoulder injury when a horse fell on top of him.

Although a string of injuries has at times in the past set him back, all were minor compared to his most recent health problems. In January 2019 he began suffering acute pains in his abdomen and right-hand side which started while he was riding at Huntingdon. As a result, he was later rushed to the hospital where he had his appendix removed.

Unfortunately, the operation didn’t go quite as planned. Two weeks after being discharged from the hospital, he suffered severe pain and sickness and was again rushed to the hospital, the second time in a month. There he was diagnosed as having a twisted gut and was due to have a major operation which would have put an end to his current season.

Then, strangely just minutes before he was due to be anesthetised for the operation, he felt something happen in his stomach. His trapped gut freed itself, and he was completely cured. Now well on the way back to rude health, he is looking forward to riding in the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

Speaking about his experience, he said, “I am on the sidelines again, but I’m glad to be on the mend as further surgery would have put me out for longer.” Currently, he is spending his time out speculating on which horses he might want to ride once he is back in the saddle. 

Fehily is married to Natasha, also from County Cork; they had a daughter in 2012. In his twenty-year career, he has ridden over 1,000 winners from a total of 7,000 rides.  He reckons there are many more left and he even entertains the possibility of making Champion Jockey soon. Betting News recently described Noel Fehily as “One of the finest jump jockeys in the business.”

Cheltenham 2019 – Day Two Diary

Day Two of Cheltenham went ahead in the end after an early inspection which was good news.

I am tracking my results from this year’s festival using a twofold strategy, which is:

1. To use all the bookies offers, brought together via Profit Maximiser and

2. Use two of my favourite tipsters – Quentin Franks Racing and the Bet Alchemist – to find the best bets for Cheltenham. Both have excellent records at the festival so I am following their tips for the week.

By combining the above two together, this should give me a good chance of beating the bookies this week.

So how did this strategy get on today? Let’s have a look below.

 

Day Two Results

After a good start yesterday with a profit of £242, I was hoping to continue the progress today.

So here are the results from Wednesday at Cheltenham. My stakes were £20 per point.

 

1.30 Ballymore Novices Hurdle

Not a great start to the day, with both the Bet Alchemist and Quentin Franks putting up the same tip in the form of Champ, who agonisingly finished second by a narrow margin. 

Still, not too much damage done with a number of bookies offering money back if your horse loses on the first race, which covered half of the stakes.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£30

 

2.10 RSA Chase

No bets in this race from either of the tipsters.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

2.50 Coral Cup Hurdle

The Bet Alchemist landed a place with Brio Conti at 12/1 but his other selection Scarpeta finished down the field, meaning I broke even on the race.   

Profit/Loss from Race: £0

 

3.30 Queen Mother Champion Chase

Just the one bet in this race and it was a free £50 bet from Bet365. As neither of the tipsters had a bet in this race I put the free £50 on Min which unfortunately never really looked like winning, but I couldn’t quite bring myself to back Altior at 2/5, although with hindsight should have done. 

Profit/Loss from Race: £0

 

4.10 Cross Country Chase

A nice win on this one with Quentin tipping Tiger Roll at 5/2 for two points, whilst the Bet Alchemist had a place with Urgent De Gregaine at 14/1.

Profit/Loss from Race: £125

 

4.50 Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle

No return in this race with the Bet Alchemist’s tip Got Trumped finishing out of the frame.

Profit/Loss from Race: -£20

 

5.30 Champion Bumper

More frustration with another second place, this time with Quentin’s tip Blue Sari by less than a length. Some of the stake covered by Betway’s money back offer on the last race at least. 

Profit/Loss from Race: -£10

 

TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS FROM THE DAY: £45

It was a day of what might have been in the end, with a couple of very close calls just missing out. But a profit is a profit so can’t complain at all and takes the profit for the week so far to £287. 

Let’s hope for more profits tomorrow but with some of those seconds turning into winners!
