Today we are starting a trial of a horse racing tipster with an outstanding long-term record who has carved out a special niche for themselves in the horse racing markets.
The niche they focus on is small fields in handicap races. By concentrating on races with an average of 5-6 runners, they have found the ability to identify value horses and achieve a strike rate of around 20%.
The service in question is called Fantastic Eights and it comes from the Betfan stable of tipsters.
The “Eights” in the title refers to focusing on races with 8 runners or less.
It is a service we have been meaning to review for a while and are pleased to now have a chance to do that.
As we say, it has an excellent long-term record, having made very close to 3,400 points profit since starting up three years ago.
The staking is generally to 5 points, so that’s the equivalent of 680 points profit to one point level stakes, which is still mighty impressive.
That has been made with a return on investment of 20%, which is a very good level to have maintained over the course of three years. The strike rate is pretty decent at 18%.
What we like most of all about this service though is the consistency, with a very smooth profit graph that has gone steadily upwards over the last three years, as you can see below:
Of course, as we are always keen to point out, past results are no guarantee of future success, so we will wait to see how this one gets on during a live trial.
But certainly all the signs are encouraging and this is a service that has established itself with a strong reputation over a long period of time.
We will run our standard three month trial and will report back here regularly on how things are going.
