Carl Nicholson’s Stable Whispers – Full Review


After having given horse racing tipster Carl Nicholson’s main Racing Diary service a positive review, we were eager to test out his other service, Stable Whispers.

Stable Whispers is a service that focuses on information received from stables about horses expected to go well.

Prior to our trial, it had apparently amassed a healthy 60 points profit for the year.

Sadly though during our four month trial almost all those profits were wiped out, with a loss of 47 points being made to advised prices.

That equated to a 97% loss of the recommended 50 point bank, pretty shocking stuff.

At Betfair SP the results were even worse, with a 66 point loss being made – so the whole bank would have been wiped out! 

Overall then we have no choice but to award Stable Whispers a FAILED rating with such large losses having been made.


Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  There is an average of just one bet per day, so the workload is extremely low with this service. 

Availability of prices:  The prices weren’t overly under pressure from when the tips were released, although the occasional selection would get smashed in by the off time. Best to get your bets on the evening before in any event. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was a lowly 11%, well below what it needs to be for the service to turn a profit.  

Advised Betting Bank: A 50 point bank is advised for following the service, which clearly is not enough given that we suffered a 47 point loss during the trial. We believe a 100 point bank should be advised. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £34.98 per month, which includes Stable Whispers and Carl’s main service, the Racing Diary. 



Sadly Carl Nicholson’s Racing Diary has had a horror trial, racking up a loss of 47 points to advised prices.

It could be that we just hit the service at a bad time, but any tipster who loses 97% of their advised betting bank is going to have a tough time convincing followers to stay with them.

On that basis, we have no choice but to award the Stable Whispers service a FAILED rating and time to move swiftly on to the next trial we feel…

Carl Nicholson’s Stable Whispers – New Review

10th May 2017

Hot on the heels of just completing our successful trial of Carl Nicholson’s Racing Diary service, we are now following that up with a new trial of his other offering, his Stable Whispers service.

Just to recap in case you missed our previous trial, Carl Nicholson is a maths and computer science graduate from Harvard University in the USA.

He also worked for the Daily Racing Form in America and has written a book on his method of finding value selections.

Carl’s Racing Diary service performed very well during our trial, notching up 45 points of profit at a return on investment of 29%.

With such impressive results, we thought we just had to follow it up with a trial of his other service, Stable Whispers.

This is a newer service which Carl just started up in late 2016 but in a short time has built up an strong-looking set of results, notching up 61 points profit so far in 2017.

That equates to £1,534 to £25 stakes, a nice little bonus if you combine it with the £1,281 made with the main Racing Diary selections. 

Basically the Stable Whispers service consists of selections that have come in from Carl’s network of contacts around the country.

He apparently gets a lot of ‘news’ each day, and spends his mornings checking out the viability of that info and the best news goes to his Stable Whispers members.

That info looks to be pretty sound so far based on what is published on the website.

Certainly if it turns out to be as good as the main service, then we have found two little gems rolled into one!

The Stable Whispers service is only available as an add-on to Racing Diary service, but you can get them combined for a reasonable price of £34.98 per month. 

We will run a standard three month trial of Stable Whispers and will report back soon on how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out Carl Nicholson’s Stable Whispers here.
