Cheek Pieces – Full Review

 

Cheek Pieces is a horse racing tipster from the reputable Betting Gods stable of tipsters. We conducted a lengthy 14 month trial of the service, which gave us a large sample size of 715 bets.

Tips come in UK racing and are generally one point win, 0.5 pts each-way or 0.5 pt win bets, so very sensible staking. 

After our extended trial, they finished with 48 points profit at advised prices, which represented growth of 32% in the recommended starting bank.  

That was achieved with a solid strike rate of 24% and a return on investment of 7%

Interestingly the results at Betfair SP were actually better than those at advised prices, with a profit of 70 points made at BSP. 

So for those whose bookie accounts have been restricted, this looks like a very viable option. 

Overall the results were solid rather than spectacular over the course of our 14 month trial, but with a good profit made we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, usually in the early evening UK time (5-6pm) with plenty of time to get the bets on. The tips normally come with detailed write-ups which is good to see. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice any discernible impact on prices and in fact as mentioned above, the Betfair SP results were actually better than the advised prices. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 24% (including placed horses) so there were  a reasonably steady rate of returns.  

Advised Betting Bank: A 150 point betting bank is recommended for following the service which seems reasonable to us given the low staking used.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £0.99 for first 10 days then £27+VAT per month. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Cheek Pieces is a horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods stable and made a solid 48 points profit at advised prices during our 14 month trial.

They actually performed quite a bit better at Betfair SP, with 70 points profit made for our trial. So this service looks like a viable option for those whose bookie accounts have been restricted.

The results overall were solid rather than spectacular, but a good profit was made during our trial so we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating.

We hope you had a good Christmas and are enjoying Boxing Day, which has an action-packed schedule of horse racing to enjoy.

Onto today’s review update though and it’s more good news for horse racing tipster Cheek Pieces, with a profit of 19 points made at advised prices since our last update.

Interestingly it’s actually been performing better at Betfair SP so far, with a profit of 14 points made since our last update and 36 points profit made for our trial to date at BSP.

It’s quite a selective service with just a few bets per week so makes it easy to follow. Looking promising so far.

Cheek Pieces – Results Update

26th October 2021

It’s been a quiet start to our trial of horse racing tipster Cheek Pieces, with a profit of 3 points made so far at advised prices after one month of our trial. 

You can view full results here.

It’s been performing better at Betfair SP so far interestingly, with a profit of 22 points made to date at BSP.

That was largely thanks to Helluvaboy which won at Kempton at an advised price of 16/1 but a BSP of 34. That does happen sometimes where a larger price selection can be much bigger odds at Betfair SP.

Even leaving that aside, they are still doing better at Betfair SP so we will keep an eye on that to see if it remains to be the case during the rest of our trial.

Cheek Pieces – New Review

24th September 2021

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing service called Cheek Pieces.

This is a tipster from the Betting Gods stable and is relatively new on the scene but has an impressive-looking record to date.

We’re not sure if there’s anything in the name of just a reference to horse racing nuance, but hopefully it’s a signed they are tuned into what they’re doing anyway.

They began proofing to Betting Gods at the start of this year and so far are 89 points up. That would equate to £890 profit at £10/point or £2,225 profit at £25/point.

That has come at a return on investment of 20% and a strike rate of 25%, which are healthy figures.

They have had five profitable months in a row which is good to see and seven profitable months from nine in total.

In terms of staking it looks very sensible, with 1 point win or 0.5 e/w stakes being used. There are around 2 bets per day on average, so it looks fairly manageable to follow.

As we say it is early days with this service but it looks promising so hopefully they can keep the run of profitable months going.

As usual we will record results as we go along here so you can see how they are getting on.

In the meantime you can check out Cheek Pieces for yourself here.

USA Racing Tipster – Full Review

 

Despite having been running this website for over seven years, we have yet to find any really good tipsters on US horse racing. 

Some of this may be to do with the fact that until very recently, gambling was largely illegal in the US, other than at the actual racing tracks or in Las Vegas. Well now that individual states are allowed to legalize gambling it is starting to really take off stateside. 

This should in turn see more high quality tipsters (or “cappers” as they’re known in the US) starting to emerge on the scene. 

It was in such hope that we launched this trial of the US Horse Racing Tipster. With very strong results coming into our trial, we were intrigued to see how it got on under a live trial. 

Well we are pleased to say it didn’t disappoint, notching up a very impressive 107 points profit at advised prices. 

That was achieved with one of the highest returns on investment we have seen from a horse racing tipster at 48%.  

The advised betting bank more than trebled during our trial, which is impressive growth. 

And as you can see from the graph below, the results were very consistent and steady throughout the trial:

So all of that is pretty amazing. However, there is a “but” coming… 

Yes unfortunately with a service like this that is both very successful and betting on quite niche markets (sadly US racing markets are still fairly illiquid compared to UK ones), the prices do tend to get hammered. 

It is not unusual to prices fall dramatically after the tips are sent out. Indeed the tipster’s own long-term results show he beats the SP by an average of 175%

So realistically it will be very tough to match the results at advised prices. To get close to them you will need a good spread of bookie accounts and be very fast to act once tips are released. 

The other thing to be aware of with a service like this is you could face bookie restrictions after a period of time as the markets are quite illiquid as we say so bets like this tend to stand out. Of course, these days the bookies tend to restrict anyone who has even a suggestion of being successful, so it’s not just limited to this service but the poor and unfair practices of bookies in general. 

In any event, sadly there isn’t an option to use Betfair with this service as a number of the races aren’t covered by Betfair. In our experience prices also get moved too much on the races that are covered to make it worthwhile. 

The bottom line is you can make a good profit with this service, but will have to accept it will be somewhat below the official results. 

That in itself is worthy of praise and for that reason we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by Telegram, usually in the early evening UK time with plenty of time to get the bets on. As we say it’s a race to get the bets on so ideally you want your bookie account already open and funded ready for the tips to come through. 

Availability of prices: As above, prices are affected severely. You need to act fast and have a good spread of bookie accounts (Bet365, Skybet, PP/BF, Betfred are the main ones). 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 26% (including placed horses) so there were  a reasonably steady rate of returns.  

Advised Betting Bank: We didn’t see a recommended betting bank but used a 50 point bank for our trial. That seems sufficient as staking is pretty low with this service and certainly it was never remotely in danger during our trial.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £30 per month, £75 per quarter or £120 for six months. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We have been searching for a profitable American racing tipster for quite a while and thankfully have finally found one in the shape of the USA Racing Tipster. 

They produced an excellent 107 points profit at advised prices during our trial, which came at a phenomenal 48% ROI. 

However, due to the service’s top class results and the poor liquidity in US racing markets, sadly the prices do get affected quite significantly after tips are sent out. You need a good spread of bookie accounts and to act very quickly after tips are sent out to make the most of the service. 

In reality it will be tough to match the official results, but you should be able to still make a decent profit – we would say at least half the official results – with the appropriate set up. 

The service does not currently have a website, so if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

13th August 2022

It’s been a good month for the USA Racing Tipster, with 9 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 109 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

Once again it’s amazing to see how many of their doubles get the first leg but the second one just misses out, or trebles where two of the three legs come in.

In such circumstances it could be worth hedging on the final leg via exchanges if you wanted to lock in some profit, because as we say it does seem to happen a lot.

It’s been a decent month for the USA Racing Tipster, with 6 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

The highlight of the month was a Yankee bet that very nearly landed a huge coup, with three of the four legs coming in. If all four had come in, the combined odds were 328/1 so the returns would have been huge.

As it was three of them coming in still returned a nice 11 points profit from a 0.66 stake.

The tipster actually took June off for personal reasons so there have only been a couple of bets since our last update, but they are back in the saddle and aiming to produce the goods again now over the rest of the season. Fingers crossed they can get back to the form of old.

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

Although May was a tough month, they were quite unlucky with some of the selections. There was a double for example where the first leg won and the second leg went 1.01 in-running on Betfair but still lost.

There were one or two other doubles/multiples that just missed out so it could easily have been a profitable month. Anyway, that’s the way it goes with racing sometimes so it’s best not to dwell on it.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

4th May 2022

Not much to report once again for the American racing expert the USA Racing Tipster recently, with no change made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are still 101 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned previously the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered. 

Unfortunately it appears the tipster was sent some insulting personal messages from trolls recently. This is completely unacceptable, particularly when you consider they have been offering their services for free to members the last few months and were actually slightly up for April on their tips.

Some people it seems can’t handle any kind of losing run (in this case it was just 6 bets) and think it is okay to be abusive. We have said before and will say it again: if you can’t handle drawdowns and losing runs then this game is not for you. They happen to every tipster now and then, even the best.

In this case it’s quite ridiculous to send abusive messages given the losing run was only six tips and the tipster was actually up for the month.

The good news is that the trolls are only a small minority and the vast majority of members understand the nature of betting and that the tipster is working very hard to deliver results for members.

The tipster has had a couple of weeks off but is now back in action and raring to go, so hopefully this is the last we will hear of any trolls. As he said himself – if it is that bad, why not just leave?

As mentioned last time the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered.

September was actually their first losing month since starting tipping 45 months ago, which is a shame but the loss was only -4.75 points, so not a disaster by any means. 

They also had seven doubles were one leg won but not the other, plus two 1.01 shots that were gubbed in-running! So it could have easily been a winning month, but that is racing of course.

Hopefully the luck will turn around soon and they’ll be back to winning ways.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

American racing expert the USA Racing Tipster continues to perform adroitly, with a profit of 7 points made at advised prices since our last update.

As mentioned last time the service isn’t practical to follow at Betfair SP, primarily because some of the bets aren’t available on Betfair but also because prices tend to get hammered.

It’s worth noting that staking on this service is fairly conservative, often 0.5 points per bet. That means the results might not look quite as good as they actually are, with a long-term ROI of over 50% being one of the best we’ve seen from any tipster.

It’s been a quiet start to September with no bets so far but they certainly don’t bet for the sake of it which is a good thing, preferring to wait for the right opportunities to present themselves. 

Please note this service does not currently have a website, so if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com 

The costs are very reasonable given the results achieved, at £30 per month, £75 per quarter or £120 for six months.

USA Racing Tipster – Results Update

1st July 2021

In this review of the USA Racing Tipster we are including the results both from when we started this review (14th May) and from last August when we started following the service in a personal capacity. 

From last August the service is 70 points up to advised prices, whilst since 14th May it is 4 points up. 

You can view full results here. 

As mentioned when opening this review, the excellent long-term results mean prices get absolutely hammered after they are released. 

You really need to have multiple bookie accounts open, funded and ready to go as soon as the tips are posted. Thankfully there is a 10 minute warning before tips are posted so you can get yourself ready. 

Even then it can be tough to match the advised prices, so realistically you have to expect to achieve slightly less than the official P/L even with multiple bookie accounts and the fastest fingers in the west. 

As also mentioned when opening our review, the SP is a whopping 170% below the advised prices on average, meaning the service is not practical to follow at Betfair SP. In any event, quite a few of the selections are not available on Betfair at all, so that removes the option even if prices didn’t get hammered quite so much.

USA Racing Tipster – New Review

14th May 2021

Despite having been running this website for over six years, we have yet to find any really good tipsters on US horse racing. 

Some of this may be to do with the fact that until very recently, gambling was largely illegal in the US, other than on the tote at the actual racing tracks or in Las Vegas. 

However, with a recent US Supreme Court ruling having opened up the opportunity for individual states to legalize gambling in their territory, the industry is poised to explode in America.

Already established companies like William Hill have been bought out by US casino giant Caesars, and other gambling companies are partnering up with US brands to take forward sports betting in states where it has been legalized.

This should in turn see more high quality tipsters (or “cappers” as they’re known stateside) starting to emerge on the scene. 

However, the good news is there is already one very high quality US racing expert we have been following in a personal capacity for the last 10 months or so. 

They are not just one of the best US horse racing tipsters we have come across, but one of the best tipsters in general. 

Their overall results are pretty incredible:

  • +350 points profit at over 50% ROI at recommended stakes;
  • +430 points profit at over 60% ROI at level stakes.

Those are some of the highest return on investment levels we have ever seen from a tipster over an extended period (over 2 years) so are worthy of huge respect. 

They have also managed an astonishing 41/41 profitable months, which is an amazing level of consistency. 

However, such phenomenal results do come with a drawback. As you may have guessed, prices are very sensitive and you have to be very quick to snap them up. 

Indeed, the tipster actually records how much he beats the SP by and it is a whopping 170%. So this is not a service to follow if you are restricted by the bookies and reliant on using Betfair. 

In any event, this is a rare occasion where we are prepared to proof a tipster who doesn’t have their own website, so good are their results.

As such if you wish to sign up or find out more, please drop us a line at info@honestbettingreviews.com 

The subscription costs are very reasonable for a service of this quality at £30 per month, £75 per quarter or £120 for six months.

In the meantime we will kick this review off today, but will include results from when we started following the service, which was last August, so you get a fuller picture of their results. 

As ever we will report back soon with our first update.

Little Acorns Gold – Full Review

 

We originally reviewed the Little Acorns betting system back in 2017 and gave it a PASSED rating after it made 189 points profit in our trial. It is essentially a low-liability laying system for the horses on Betfair.

It is one of the longest-running betting systems, having been going for well over 15 years now and is also one of the most popular, winning our Best Horse Racing Service 2020 as voted for by our members.

Little Acorns Gold is a service that provides the selections from the Little Acorns system for you, so you don’t have to spend time finding them yourself each day. It alerts you by e-mail and/or Telegram when there is a selection.

Then all you have to do is click on Betfair and place the bet – simples!

It’s a useful addition to have in this day and age when people live such busy lives and don’t have time to study the Racing Post each day. 

Anyway, we ran an extended 14 month trial of the service, which gave us a healthy 384 selections.

For the purposes of this review we recorded results using two staking systems:

  • The staking system that Little Acorns advise, i.e. Fibonacci staking, which is where you stake 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 34, 55 points until you hit a winner and then go back to the beginning.
  • Level staking, our standard method for reviews here at HBR. 

The results were quite different depending on which staking system you used. 

Using Fibonacci staking would have made 30 points profit, which is solid enough. 

On the other hand, using level staking would have produced a 17 point loss

So the real question here is: was it the staking system that made the profit rather than the underlying betting strategy? 

Well, in terms of the results seen during this review then “yes” can really be the only answer to that question. 

However, it should be noted that the longer-term Little Acorns results do show (and indeed our own previous review showed) that the system itself has made a profit at level stakes over the long run. So it may have just suffered a downturn during our trial.

In any event, as we warned a few times during our review updates below, if you are using Fibonacci staking then you need to have a very substantial betting bank – and very strong nerves!

A full losing sequence of 11 bets would blow 177 points in total – or £1,770 if betting at £10 stakes. 

Now it is worth pointing out that we didn’t hit a full 11 bet losing sequence during our trial (the most was 9) and Andrew who runs the service says Little Acorns Gold has not hit one in the three years prior to our trial starting (the most was 10). 

However, that is not to say that one couldn’t happen. In fact, in betting we should always prepare ourselves for the worst and expect that at some stage it probably will happen. 

In which case, the fact that they only recommend a 140 point betting bank seems somewhat crazy. 

In our view, the betting bank should be at least twice the maximum wipe out (177 points), so should be at least 354 points. Let’s say 400-500 points to be on the safe side. 

There is a big danger of someone having too small a betting bank and then getting wiped out when they have to put on very hefty stakes as the losing sequence mounts up. 

There is also the psychology of putting on a total of 177 points in a row (and 55 points on the final bet) just to win back slightly more than you started with, so that is something you will need to be comfortable with and able to handle if you are using Fibonacci staking. 

It won’t be to everyone’s tastes, although at the same time many are happy enough to do this and indeed a number of Little Acorns members have been using the system for years now and have done very well out of it. 

We just want to make sure anyone signing up has a full picture of the risks involved and has a large enough betting bank to sustain the losing runs. 

If you are going in with your eyes open in that regard, then Little Acorns has demonstrated an ability to make a profit in both our original review and this one. On that basis we are willing to award it a PASSED rating.

As we say though, just make sure you are ready for a bit of a bumpy ride at times! 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail and Telegram and can come out at any time of day when there is a suitable selection. The notifications are normally 10-15 minutes before race time, giving a reasonable amount of time to place the bets. Once you receive a notification you just need to check the price is within the stated range on Betfair (or your exchange of choice) and then place your lay bet with your appropriate staking. So it’s pretty straightforward really. 

There is just one bet per day on average, although some days there are 2-3 bets whilst others there are none. 

Availability of prices: As you are betting on the exchanges and on odds-on favourites, prices are not too much of an issue. Some selections will drift from the time the notification is sent whilst others will steam, but overall you wouldn’t expect Little Acorns members to be shifting the prices given the liquidity on favourites close to race time. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 39%, but that may be a little below the long-term average. 

Advised Betting Bank: They recommend a 140 point bank for following the service, which as discussed above does not seem sufficient to us. We would recommend a 400-500 point betting bank to withstand the maximum losing run.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £47+VAT per month, £119+VAT per quarter or £399+VAT a year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Little Acorns Gold is a spin-off from the very popular and long-running Little Acorns lay betting system for the horses. 

Little Acorns Gold sends you the selections from the LA system rather than having to find them yourself. 

In our trial it made a decent 30 points profit at Fibonacci staking but a 17 point loss at advised staking. On the basis of the Fibonacci staking we are prepared to award the service a PASSED rating, but that does come with a warning to ensure you have a sufficient betting bank – and nerves of steel – if using it!

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

6th September 2022

It’s been a mixed month for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold, with a loss of 5 points made at flat stakes but 4 points profit made at Fibonacci stakes since our last update.

That means it is now 16 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes but 20 points up using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results to us.

As remarked on last time, there is a growing divergence opening up between the results advised stakes and Fibonacci stakes, with the latter performing significantly better. 

That would suggest quite a lot of the power of this strategy comes from the staking system. As to whether you wish the follow the Fibonacci staking system that is up to you but it is essential to have a sufficient bank if you do. They suggest a 140 point bank but we would say 200-250 points would be more advisable here given the risks.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

29th July 2022

It’s been a good month for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold, with a profit of 5 points made at flat stakes and 13 points profit made at Fibonacci stakes since our last update.

That means it is now 11 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes but 16 points up using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results to us.

It’s interesting to see the divergence here between advised stakes and Fibonacci stakes, with the former down and the latter a decent amount up.

That would suggest quite a lot of the power of this system comes from the staking system. As we have said before it is not for the faint-hearted, as the losing streaks can be brutal. However, with a big enough bank and the tolerance for these losing streaks, it does look like the optimal strategy here.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

21st June 2022

The very gradual improvement continues for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold, with a profit of 1 point made at flat stakes and 2 points profit made at Fibonacci stakes since our last update.   

That means it is now 16 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes and 3 points up using Fibonacci staking.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

A slight improvement for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold recently, with a profit of 1 point made at flat stakes and 3 points profit made at Fibonacci stakes since our last update.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

There have been quite a few selections that have started over evens lately at BSP, meaning they are no bet. So it’s been a fairly quiet month on the betting front but things may pick up now with lots of flat racing coming up.

It’s been a slightly better time for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold lately, with a profit of 2 points made at flat stakes and 6 points profit made at Fibonacci stakes since our last update.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

1st March 2022

The tough times continue unfortunately for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold, with a further 3 points lost at flat stakes and 1 point lost at Fibonacci stakes.   

That means it is now 20 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes and 8 points down using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

It’s been fairly quiet over the last month in terms of bet volume, but that may pick up now with quite a busy period coming up in the racing calendar.

It’s quite surprising to see this service down for our trial as it has years of profitable proofing behind it so this may just be a blip – let’s hope so anyway.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

25th January 2022

It’s been a tricky time for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold recently, with 7 points lost at flat stakes and 11 points lost at Fibonacci stakes.   

That means it is now 17 points down for our trial overall using flat stakes and 7 points down using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds to record results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

It’s been quite a hair-raising ride recently if you’ve been using Fibonacci staking, as we got up to the maximum 34 point stake at one point. It was the second time that’s happened during our trial and thankfully on both occasions the 34 point lay was successful. 

It does show however why it’s crucial to have a big enough bank to withstand those losing runs in case the last bet in the Fibonacci sequence loses. They recommend a 140 point bank but really we think a 200+ point bank could be used to be on the safe side.

A full losing streak would be up to 80 points lost depending on the odds taken over the sequence. For example on the most recent run if the last bet had lost we would have lost 69 points on that sequence of lays.   

So the fact we have been close to that on two occasions shows the risk. If both had gone the other way the whole bank would now be close to being gone.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

13th December 2021

A slight difference for horse racing laying system Little Acorns Gold this month depending on which staking strategy you use, with 3 points lost at flat stakes but level returns at Fibonacci stakes.   

That means it is now 10 points down for our trial so far using flat stakes but is 4 points up using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Please note for this review we are using Betfair SP odds for the purposes of recording results, but if you are taking the bets when the alerts come out you will have slightly different results.

As you can see then something of a divergence in results depending on which staking system is used. The Fibonacci isn’t to everyone’s tastes but it does seem to produce better results over the long run.  Ensuring you have a large enough bank to sustain losing runs with it is crucial though.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

11th November 2021

It’s been a pretty quiet month for Little Acorns Gold, with no change at flat stakes and 4 points profit at Fibonacci stakes.   

That means it is still 7 points down for our trial so far using flat stakes but is 4 points up using Fibonacci staking.

You can view full results here.

Everyone will have slightly different results on this service depending on when they access the selections and place the bets as the odds fluctuate quite a lot in the period before the race starts, which is when alerts are sent. 

For the purposes of this review we are using Betfair SP odds as a standard benchmark. So on some occasions the odds of the selection have been over 2.0 at BSP and therefore no bet, whereas if you’d got on when the selection was sent out the odds may have been below 2.0 and therefore a bet – and vice versa.

It should even itself out over the long term but just worth pointing out that results will vary slightly depending on when you access the selections and place your bets.

It continues to be a bit of a struggle for Little Acorns Gold to get going in our trial so far. Since our last update they have lost 5 points at flat stakes and 2 points at Fibonacci stakes.

Little Acorns Gold – Results Update

6th September 2021

It’s been a bit of a mixed start to our trial of Little Acorns Gold, depending on which staking system you are using. 

Using flat stakes, it is 3 points down for our trial so far, whereas using the recommended Fibonacci staking it is 2 points up so far.

You can view full results here.

If using the Fibonacci staking (which is where you stake 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 points until you hit a winner and then go back to the beginning), it’s really important to ensure you have a large enough betting bank and use staking that is appropriate to you. 

For example, at one point over the last month we saw a losing streak of 8 bets, which meant a loss at that stage of a little over 34 points. If using a 140 point bank, that would be manageable, although still a decent chunk of the bank to lose. 

Thankfully the next bet won, winning back the previous 8 bets’ losses but sometimes the full fibonacci sequence will be lost and you don’t want one of those to wipe you out.

Just a note aswell that we are using Betfair SP odds for the purposes of recording results, so our results will differ slightly from the official ones.

Everyone will have slightly different results anyway depending on when they access the selections and place the bets as the odds fluctuate quite a lot in the period before the race starts, which is when alerts are sent.

Little Acorns Gold – New Review

3rd August 2021

We are starting a new trial today of a service called Little Acorns Gold.

Many of you will have heard of the original Little Acorns betting system, which we originally reviewed back in 2017 and gave a PASSED rating to after making 189 points profit in our trial. Little Acorns is essentially a low-liability laying system for the horses on Betfair.

It is one of the longest-running betting systems, having been going for well over 10 years now and is also one of the most popular, winning our Best Horse Racing Service 2020 as voted for by our members. It has also won numerous other awards over the years.

So that’s Little Acorns, but what is Little Acorns Gold?

Well essentially it’s a service that provides the selections for Little Acorns for you, so you don’t have to spend time finding them yourself each day.

Let’s face it, often it can be difficult to set aside time to finding the selections each day, particularly with the busy lives we lead these days. And there are some days when you just forget or can’t get access to the internet or the websites you need.

So Little Acorns Gold does all the work for you – finding the selections and e-mailing/alerting you (via Telegram) when there is a selection.

Then all you have to do is click on Betfair and place the bet – simples!

The results of the system are very impressive, with over +190 points profit made since 2018.

That’s without compounding too – an example in the members’ section shows that with 2% compounding you could have turned a £1200 starting bank in 2018 into over £19,850 by March 2021!

The results are also remarkably consistent, with only four losing months over the last three and a half years.

Overall then there’s a huge amount to like about Little Acorns Gold and it’s a really good innovation to have added these alerts for people who don’t have time to find the selections themselves each day.

We will be following the selections here live on the site and recording our results as we go along on this page.

In the meantime you can check out Little Acorns Gold for yourself here.

The Racing Pundit – Full Review

 

The Racing Pundit is a horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods stable of tipsters. They cover a variety of racing from the UK, Ireland and Hong Kong.

We followed the tips for seven months, which gave us a very good sample of over 1100 bets.

It has turned out to be one of the most unusual trials we have run here at Honest Betting Reviews. 

That is because there was a huge difference between the results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP. 

At advised prices it was a real struggle, with a loss of 59 points made for our trial. 

However, at Betfair SP, they finished with a very good profit of 73 points

So that’s a massive 132 points difference between the two – one of the largest we’ve found in a trial and certainly that way round – often it’s the advised prices finishing up and the BSP ones down. 

We have listed the Betfair SP results in the summary table above as that would appear to be more useful – we can’t imagine many would be wanting to follow the service at advised prices and would be too bothered about the stats in that regard. (Also a small note here that for Hong Kong races, with no BSP available the advised price results were used).

In terms of the BSP results, they were pretty solid with a decent 30% strike rate (including placed horses) and a 7% return on investment (ROI). 

Betting purely on Betfair those are very respectable metrics – indeed any sort of profit at BSP is hard to come by so is worthy of respect. 

The big question really though is why? Why did they manage to do so much better at BSP? 

Well having looked at the results we can see quite a few mid-priced selections at odds of over 8/1, that often have higher BSPs than bookie prices.

More than that though it appears to be selections drifting out quite considerably over the course of the day. 

There was one instance just recently for example, with City Vaults being advised at odds of 3.5 at Redcar on 13th September, but winning at a BSP of 10.87. 

There were quite a few instances of horses where the BSP was more than double that of the advised odds. 

Obviously the other advantage of this is that if you were betting at the bookies and have BOG (best odds guaranteed) you would also be able to take advantage of the drift – and the BOG odds are not included in the advised price results so those would be considerable better with BOG applied.

In any event, whatever the exact reasons for the much better results at BSP, the fact is it was very welcome and something that may appeal to those whose bookie accounts have been restricted. 

Overall then we feel like this service warrants a PASSED rating, as although it made a loss at advised prices, the gains at Betfair SP are very noteworthy and do give it a special appeal for those without access to bookie accounts. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, usually around 8-10am UK time on the morning of racing. There are around 5 bets per day on average, which means it is a little more work than the typical horse racing service. Of course if you are just placing your bets at BSP, which would be the preferred option here, then that will speed things up quite a bit in terms of bet placement. 

Availability of prices: Contrary to most services we review here, often the prices would drift from their initial level. That means there is no rush to get bets on and worrying about losing value.

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was solid at 30% (including placed horses) so there were  a reasonably steady rate of returns.  

Advised Betting Bank: They recommend a 150 point bank for following the service, which seems reasonable to us. The staking is sensible at 1 point per bet and with a solid strike rate, 150 points should be okay, particularly if betting at BSP.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £0.99 + VAT for the first 10 days then £37 + VAT per month thereafter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

This has turned out to be one of the more unusual trials we’ve run here at HBR, with The Racing Pundit delivering an impressive 73 points profit at Betfair SP, but a 59 point loss at advised prices.

That’s a pretty substantial difference and one we’ve not encountered very often in trials here. It was down in large part to horses drifting between the morning and the time of the race.

Given the importance to many bettors of having a profitable service to follow at BSP (and it being relatively rare) we feel it is fair to award this service a PASSED rating. May well be worth trying out for those who have had their bookie accounts restricted.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

10th September 2022

It’s been a tough time lately for horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit, with a loss of 51 points made at advised prices since our last update.

That puts them 53 points down for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have lost 37 points since our last update but are still 40 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

The gap between the results at advised prices and BSP keeps widening and now stands at an amazing 93 points. It goes without saying then that if you are following this service, the best way – or really the only way – to do so is using Betfair SP. 

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

1st July 2022

There looks to be a solid trend developing for The Racing Pundit, with the BSP results consistently outperforming the advised prices. 

At advised prices they have made 5 points profit since our last update, putting them 2 points down for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

However, at Betfair SP they made a further 21 points profit last month and are now 77 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

As we’ve remarked before it’s unusual to see the BSP results performing so much better than the advised prices, but clearly this tipster has a strategy that maximises the BSP returns which is very interesting.  

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

1st July 2022

There continues to be quite a divergence between the results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP for horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit, with 5 points lost at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 6 points down for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

However, at Betfair SP they actually made 11 points profit last month and are now 56 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

It’s quite unusual to see such a divergence and we can’t remember too many instances of a service being much more profitable at BSP than advised prices, but it will certainly be welcome for those who have had their accounts restricted by the bookies and are only able to use Betfair.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

1st June 2022

A small step backwards for horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit over the last month, with 9 points lost at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 1 point down for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned last time though they are doing significantly better at Betfair SP, with 11 points lost since our last update but 45 points profit made for our trial overall at BSP.

It’s good to see a service that is in profit at BSP so we will keep a close eye on this to see if it remains the case throughout our trial.

The Racing Pundit – Results Update

3rd May 2022

It’s been an interesting start to our trial of horse racing tipster The Racing Pundit, with a large divergence between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP.

At advised prices, they are 8 points up so far after six weeks of our trial.

You can view full results here.

However, at Betfair SP they are an excellent 56 points up for our trial to date. So quite a divergence as we say.

Some of the difference can be explained by their biggest winner so far, Redarna at Thirsk which was recommended at 66/1 and won at a BSP of 82.88.

That only accounts for 13 points difference though, so even allowing for that one big winner the results have still been significantly better at BSP so far.

Another point to mention is that this is a very high volume service – we have already proofed over 300 bets! So it’s one that does require a little more effort to follow than a number of the services we have reviewed here.

The Racing Pundit – New Review

22nd March 2022

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing tipster called The Racing Pundit.

From the Betting Gods stable of tipsters, they are a relative newcomer to the tipping scene having only started in November last year.

The results so far look very good however, with over 160 points profit made to date. That represents over 200% growth of the recommended 75 point starting bank.

It has been achieved with a high strike rate of 40% and an impressive return on investment of 28%.

They tip in both flat and national hunt racing and selections are normally sent out on the morning of racing.

It’s early days as we say but it does look promising so let’s see how they get on under a live trial. 

We started receiving tips from the 17th so will record results from then. As ever results will be updated here as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out The Racing Pundit for yourself here.

Irish Cash Consortium – Full Review

 

Horse racing in Ireland is famed for its big gambles, insider knowledge and behind-the-scenes whispers. 

Over the years we’ve reviewed a few Irish racing services but haven’t come across too many successful ones unfortunately. 

At the outset of this review we were hopeful that was all about to change with the Irish Cash Consortium. 

The tips are provided by a guy called Aidan who apparently has contacts with gallops watchers, jockeys’ agents, stable insiders and a network of fellow professional punters – plus an inside line on where big gambles are being placed with the bookies.

Normally we would be a little skeptical of claims like these, but we have seen a similar service from the same source (i.e. the Matthew Walton stable) called Racing Intelligence that has proven to be of the highest quality and is one of our top recommended horse racing tipsters. 

We are pleased to say that the Irish Cash Consortium followed suit and performed excellently in our trial, smashing through the 100 point barrier and finishing with 112 points profit at advised prices at the end of our extended 12 month trial (which incorporated 640 bets). 

The gains were pretty consistent throughout the trial (with one or two peaks and troughs), as you can see below:

In terms of bank growth, the 75 point starting bank more than doubled over our trial, growing 149% which is excellent going. 

The strike rate was impressive too at 36% (including placed horses) whilst the return on investment was more than respectable at 18%

For those who have had their bookie accounts restricted, the good news is that the service also proved profitable at Betfair SP, finishing with 66 points profit

So that’s around half of the profit of advised prices but still a healthy gain in its own right. 

All in all then the Irish Cash Consortium ticks all the boxes and gets a definitive PASSED rating, with bells on!

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail (or Telegram if you prefer), periodically throughout the morning then there is a summary e-mail usually around midday. There are around 1-2 bets per day on average, which means it is very manageable in terms of workload. 

Availability of prices: The prices often get pushed in a fair bit as Irish racing tends to not be quite as liquid as UK racing, so it’s a good idea to get your bets on as quickly as you can. However, they still made an impressive 66 points profit at BSP, so even if you can’t get the advised prices there is still good profit to be made.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was good at 36% (including placed horses) meaning there was a steady supply of returns during our review and the drawdowns were manageable. 

Advised Betting Bank: They recommend a 50-75 point bank for following the service, which seems reasonable to us. The staking is very sensible at 1 point per bet and with a solid strike rate, a 75 point bank should be sufficient and is what we used for this trial. If you wanted to be on the safer side, a 100 point bank could be used of course. 

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £19.95 + VAT for the first month then £39.95 + VAT per month thereafter, which is pretty reasonable given the results achieved. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We ran an extended 12 month trial of horse racing tipster the Irish Cash Consortium and it delivered excellent results, producing 112 points profit at advised prices. That came at an ROI of 18% and a strike rate of 36%

It also performed well at Betfair SP, making 66 points profit. Suffice to say it’s a PASSED rating for this one then and great to have a profitable Irish racing service to add to the portfolio.

It’s been an even better start at Betfair SP, with a profit of 17 points made for our trial to date.

Just a reminder that this is a service provided by a guy who has contacts with gallops watchers, jockeys’ agents, stable insiders and a network of fellow professional punters – plus an inside line on where big gambles are being placed with the bookies.

All that info seems to be paying off so far, let’s hope it continues.

Irish Cash Consortium – New Review

1st October 2021

Horse racing in Ireland is famed for its big gambles, insider knowledge and behind-the-scenes whispers. 

Over the years we’ve reviewed a few Irish racing services but haven’t come across too many successful ones. 

Hopefully that’s all about to change with the latest one we have lined up to review…and that’s a service called the Irish Cash Consortium. 

The tips are provided by a guy called Aidan who apparently has contacts with gallops watchers, jockeys’ agents, stable insiders and a network of fellow professional punters – plus an inside line on where big gambles are being placed with the bookies.

Normally we would be a little skeptical of claims like these, but we have seen a similar service from the same source (i.e. the Matthew Walton stable) called Racing Intelligence that performed very well during our trial. 

The results for this service look very promising too, with 120 points profit made since starting tipping back in March. 

That has been achieved with an exceptional return on investment (ROI) of 38% and a decent strike rate of 37%. 

And for those who have been restricted by the bookies, the good news is the results have also been strong at Betfair SP, with 110 points profit made at an ROI of 34%.

All in all that makes us believe this chap may indeed have the right contacts in the Irish racing industry.

As ever though, the proof of the pudding will be in the eating so let’s see how they get on under a live trial. 

We started receiving the bets on 23rd September so will record results from then. Results will be updated here as usual as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out the Irish Cash Consortium for yourself here.

The Outside Edge – Full Review

 

The Outside Edge is a horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods stable of tipsters. They provide tips in UK and Irish flat & jumps racing, with the occasional tip for US racing.

We followed the tips for an extended 14 months, which gave us a very substantial sample size of 1624 bets. 

Any tipster that can produce a sustained profit over an extended trial like this is worthy of respect and that is exactly what The Outside Edge managed to do. 

A total profit of 269 points was made at advised prices during our trial, which is an excellent amount to have amassed. 

That was achieved with a solid strike of 29% (including placed horses) and a respectable ROI of 10%.

In terms of the profit graph over the trial, it was very strong over the early part of the trial with steady upward growth, then moved sideways for a while before quite a substantial dip, but then recovered strongly over the latter part of our trial:

That shows the importance of having a big enough betting bank and the patience to withstand extended drawdowns. Those who stuck with it would have been rewarded with the recent upturn in form over the past couple of months.

Turning to the Betfair SP results, these were quite a bit below the results at advised prices, with a profit of 106 points was made. Whilst still a very good amount to have made at BSP, it is less than half the profit made at advised prices.

So to get the most out of the service you will want to have access to bookie accounts, although it is still viable to follow if you are restricted to using the exchanges.

Overall then with an excellent 269 points profit made for our trial at advised prices, we are happy to award The Outside Edge a PASSED rating.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are sent by e-mail, with an update the evening before racing and then another on the morning of racing. With around 4 bets per day on average it’s a little bit of work to follow but not too bad by any means.

Availability of prices: Prices can be quite sensitive, particularly those sent out the evening before racing. There was quite a big difference between the results at advised prices and BSP, which shows the value being achieved early but also the importance of getting bets on quickly.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 29% (including placed horses), which is pretty good for a horse racing service.

Advised Betting Bank: A 300 point betting bank was advised for following the service, which given the drawdown of around 200 points seems fair, although to be on the safe side a 400 point bank could be advised for this service.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are £1.99 for the first 15 days then £27 per month, which is very reasonable given the results achieved.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

The Outside Edge is a horse racing tipster that produced an excellent 269 points profit during an extended 14 month trial.

It achieved that with a strike rate of 29% and an ROI of 10%, which are more than respectable statistics. There was quite a substantial drawdown during our trial though, so a large betting bank is required if following the service (at least 300 points).

All in all though it’s been a very successful trial and the service is well worthy of a PASSED rating.

It’s also been a decent month at Betfair SP, with a profit of 20 points made since our last update. That means they are now 35 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

The highlight over the last month was a cracking 50/1 winner in the shape of Bedouin’s Story at Newmarket, which members obviously very much enjoyed. It was also a decent BSP at 45, so even those without bookie accounts would have landed a nice touch.

To have produced such good profits over a large sample size like this is a strong indication of a service with a clear edge over the market.

Fair play to them and long may it continue.

22nd December 2020

At Betfair SP it’s also been a strong start, with a profit of 70 points made so far. That is down in part to an excellent winner they had on Saturday at Ascot with Not So Sleepy winning at a BSP of 30.36, which really gave them a boost heading into the Xmas period. 

Just a reminder that as noted below in our opening of the review, we started receiving tips on 20th October so have recorded results from then.

The Outside Edge – New Review

16th November 2020

Today we are stating a new review of a horse racing tipster called The Outside Edge.

This is a tipster from the reputable Betting Gods tipster platform who started proofing their tips back in December 2019, so nearly a year ago now. 

In that time they have produced £2,764 profit at £10 per point stakes at a return on investment of over 15%

That works out at an average monthly profit of £276 at the same £10 per point stakes which is very handy indeed. 

The strike rate (otherwise known as win rate) is over 30% which is healthy level and should mean there are steady returns (hopefully). 

Tips are provided by a chap called Darren and he explains his approach as follows:-

“I like to take a two-pronged approach which is why I send two sets of tips each day. I send my first few tips the evening before – this is where I capture value in the markets. I then send a second round of tips in the morning of racing where I look at market trends to grab some final value for you.”

So two shots at grabbing some value and smashing the bookies, which is encouraging. 

We started receiving tips on 20th October so will record results from then. They have started off very strongly so hopefully that will continue for the remainder of our review. Results will be updated here regularly as we go along. 

In the meantime you can check out The Outside Edge for yourself here.

Hanbury Racing Tips – Full Review

 

Hanbury Racing Tips is a horse racing tipping service providing selections – often at high odds – for UK and Irish racing.

The selections for Hanbury Racing Tips are provided by a chap called Richard Hutchinson who won the Tote Ten To Follow Jumps competition in 2020. In doing so he captured the £10,000 March monthly prize and also the £177,000 first prize, so in total over £188,000 for his syndicate.

We followed his tips for an extended seven month trial, in which time we proofed over 450 bets.

And after that extended trial we are pleased to report that the results were excellent, with a total profit of 238 points made at advised prices.

That was achieved with an excellent return on investment (ROI) of 27% and a solid strike rate of 21% (including placed horses).

Richard has a penchant for high odds selections and there were a number of 100/1 shots picked and a lot at 66/1 and other big prices too.

Amazingly, one of the 100/1 shots actually won during our trial and a 150/1 came second towards the end of our trial – but tipped each way it still returned a healthy 29 points profit.

So in terms of the results at advised prices, this was one of the best horse racing trials we have run for a while.

One thing to be aware of though is that there was a wide discrepancy between the results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP, with the latter actually making an 89 point loss for our trial.

That difference was down in large part to one tip – Danilo D’Airy – which won at advised odds of 100/1. With a small rule 4 deduction included, it returned 106 points at advised prices from a one point each-way bet.

However, at Betfair SP it went off at just 12.53, returning just under 14 points profit, so a massive difference there.

Excluding this rather exceptional selection from the results though, you would still get results of 132 points profit at advised prices versus a 103 point loss at BSP.

So whichever way you slice it this doesn’t look like a service you can follow at Betfair SP and is one you would need bookie accounts for.

If you do have bookie accounts though it has been an excellent trial as we say and well worthy of a PASSED rating.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are sent by e-mail, normally the evening before racing with a few early in the morning on the day of racing. With around 2-3 bets per day on average it’s not too onerous to follow.

Availability of prices: As Richard tips at very big odds the prices tend to be pretty sensitive so it is advisable to get your bets on as soon as possible. Quite often the big prices get smashed in by the time of the race. And as mentioned above, it does not look like the service is practical to follow at Betfair SP so you will need access to bookie accounts to make it practical to follow the service.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 21%, which is pretty good when you consider the odds tipped at.

Advised Betting Bank: A 210 point betting bank was advised for following the service and that seems about right to us.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are £4.99 for the first 14 days then £36.99 per month.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Hanbury Racing Tips is a horse racing service that provides tips at high odds on UK and Irish racing. They came into our trial with a strong reputation and for once we can say they fully lived up to it, amassing a superb 238 points profit at advised prices. The ROI was also excellent at 27%.

The only thing to note is that it doesn’t look like the service is practical to follow at Betfair SP, as they actually made a loss at BSP for our trial.

Please note they are offering a 25% discount on subscriptions for Honest Betting Reviews visitors – please use the code honest25 at checkout.

Hanbury Racing Tips – Results Update

27th September 2021

Horse racing tipster Hanbury Racing Tips continues to fly along, with another 63 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

That means they are now an impressive 199 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned in previous updates it’s not quite such a bright picture at Betfair SP though, with a profit of 17 points made since our last update but 81 points lost for our trial overall at BSP. 

There have been excellent winners over the last month at prices of 25/1, 16/1, 14/1 and 33/1, as well as lot of big-priced place finishes. 

Top stuff and well done to Richard who runs the service.

Hanbury Racing Tips – Results Update

25th August 2021

Yet more profit for Hanbury Racing Tips this month with another 12 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

That means they are now an impressive 136 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned in previous updates it’s a very different picture at Betfair SP though, with a loss of 48 points made since our last update and 98 points lost for our trial overall at BSP. 

Even taking into account the one selection that was tipped at 100/1 but went off at 12.53 BSP, that is still one of the biggest differences we have seen between advised prices and BSP in one of our trials. 

That may be down in part to them tipping the evening before racing and looking for value at big prices which then get punted in by the off. 

Whatever the reason though this is definitely looking like a service you need bookie accounts to follow. 

 

 

 

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

Hanbury Racing Tips – Results Update

23rd July 2021

The good form continues for Hanbury Racing Tips, with another 33 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

That means they are now an excellent 124 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned in previous updates it’s a very different picture however at Betfair SP, with 21 points profit made since our last update but 50 points lost for our trial overall at BSP. 

So it very much looks like this is not a service to follow if you are restricted to the exchanges – bookie accounts are needed.

If you have bookie accounts then it’s looking like a top service.

Hanbury Racing Tips – Results Update

23rd June 2021

Just a small profit this month for Hanbury Racing Tips, with 4 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

With the big gains made previously that puts them 91 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned last time it’s a very different picture however at Betfair SP, with another 23 points lost since our last update and 71 points lost for our trial overall at BSP. 

So it very much looks like this is not a service to follow if you are restricted to the exchanges – bookie accounts are needed.

In fact we can’t remember seeing such a big discrepancy between results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP before, although as mentioned last time a large part of this is due to one winner which was advised at 100/1 but went off a BSP of just 12.53.

Anyway, just to mention as well that Hanbury Racing won our tipster of the month award last month, belatedly added after they were mistakenly overlooked in our original post. So congrats to them on the win.

It is quite a different story however at Betfair SP, as they are actually 48 points down for our trial so far at BSP. 

That is down in large part to just one tip – Danilo D’Airy – which won at advised odds of 100/1. With a small rule 4 deduction included, it returned 106 points at advised prices from a one point each-way bet.

However, at Betfair SP it went off at just 12.53, returning just under 14 points profit, so a massive difference there obviously. That fits the definition of a horse that was “smashed in” if ever there was one!

Whether that was just a one-off or not we will have to wait and see, but so far it is looking like this is a service you will need access to bookie accounts to get the most out of.

Hanbury Racing Tips – New Review

17th April 2021

Today we are starting a new review of a horse racing service called Hanbury Racing Tips. 

This comes from a new tipster platform called Mega Tipsters. 

The selections for Hanbury Racing Tips come from a chap called Richard Hutchinson who won the Tote Ten To Follow Jumps competition in 2020. In doing so he captured the £10,000 March monthly prize and also the £177,000 first prize, so in total over £188,000 for his syndicate.

In addition, Richard finished 9th in 2009 and had a runner in the Grand National. With these kind of results, it was only natural for him to turn his attention to running a professional tipping service, and that is what he has done at Mega Tipsters.

Richard has been following racing for over 30 years and studies form the closely, watching a huge amount of racing to aid his selection process. He specialises in both grade 1 horses and well-handicapped types. Either way Richard spends many hours studying the form before sending out his tips.  

The results since Richard starting tipping in May 2020 look very impressive, with a profit of over 660 points made at a superb ROI of 39.5%. 

That works out at over £16,000 profit at £25 per point stakes and over £1500 per month profit. 

The focus at Hanbury Racing is on long-shot selections, with massive winners at prices of 66/1, 50/1, 33/1, 28/1, 22/1 having been achieved to date. And amazingly they just hit a 150/1 winner a couple of weeks ago!

Whilst that has provided exceptional returns – and plenty of excitement – to date, it also means a substantial betting bank is needed and a 225 point bank is recommended. 

Overall then this looks like a very promising service and we are looking forward to seeing how it gets on. We started receiving tips on 13th April so will record selections from then. As usual we will update things as we along here.

In the meantime you can check out Hanbury Racing Tips for yourself here.

Back Lucrative  – Full Review

 

Back Lucrative is a long-running horse racing service operated by a professional gambler called Michael Carr. We originally took a look at the service way back in 2015 and have kept an eye on it ever since. It had been closed to new members for quite a while but recently reopened, giving us a chance to run a new review. 

Michael who runs the service is a well-known figure in the racing world having produced a number of informative guides and videos on gambling and how he has achieved his own success in the field.

Back Lucrative is a very successful service, having been running since 2013 and amassing over 1500 points profit in that time, including making a profit every year. 

With such a strong reputation, you are always a bit worried the review will be a jinx and things will all go pear-shaped.

Well fortunately this time we weren’t a jinx on the service and it performed very well, netting 105 points profit at advised prices across its two strategies. 

However, the two strategies – the Value Bets and Banker Bets – performed so differently during our review that we thought it would be useful in this instance to give the results separately.

So looking at them individually, the Value Bets made an excellent 180 points profit whilst the Banker Bets sadly lost 75 points (both at advised prices). 

So really it was chalk and cheese between the two strategies. 

Looking at the Value Bets first, these are one-point each-way bets looking for value (obviously!) in the market, usually at high odds. They still managed a good strike rate of 31% (including placed horses) even though they are focused on higher-odds selections. And of course with 180 points profit they performed superbly, almost doubling the recommended 200 point betting bank. 

The return on investment was also good at 15%, so all in all we were highly impressed with Back Lucrative’s Value Bets. 

The only negative we could see is that the Betfair SP results were a long way behind the advised prices and actually made a loss of 2 points in the end.

Such a big difference between the advised prices and BSP results is not something we see very often and may be down in part to the popularity of Back Lucrative, which as you can imagine with over 1500 points profit made in 7 years has a large and loyal following. 

The bottom line is that if you want to follow the service you will need access to bookie accounts because you will struggle to make a profit using Betfair. 

Turning to the Banker Bets, there isn’t too much that needs to be said really but a loss of 75 points is obviously disappointing and we’re not sure why there was such a discrepancy between the two strategies. The vast majority of the Banker bets are at odds of between 3.0 and 6.0, so perhaps Michael just struggles to find value at this lower odds band. 

Either way we wouldn’t be surprised at all if members were betting solely on the Value Bets and if so we certainly wouldn’t blame them. 

So how to sum up? Well overall we are definitely happy to award the service a PASSED rating. Even if you followed both strategies you still would have finished with over 100 points profits which is very good going. And if you had followed just the Value Bets then 180 points profit would have been made at advised prices. 

So whichever way the tips are followed the results produced strong returns and given the long history of over seven years of profit this has to rank as one of the best horse racing services out there. We would recommend grabbing a place whilst the doors are still open. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are accessed by logging into the Back Lucrative website and the selections are normally available by 10am UK time. With an average of just 3 bets per day per strategy it’s relatively straightforward to follow the service. 

Availability of prices: Prices get hit quite considerably, which is not surprising given the popularity of the service but means you will need access to a good number of bookie accounts and to act quickly once tips are posted. As mentioned above, the Betfair SP results actually finished in deficit which helps to demonstrate the value being found early.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 31% (including placed horses) for the Value Bets and 21% for the Banker Bets, which is solid and certainly for the Value Bets is impressive given that it tends to go for horses at longer odds.

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is recommended for following each strategy, which seems more than sufficient to us.  

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £1 for the first 7 days then £37 per month or £297 per year. This covers both the Value Bets and Banker Bets, which are not available as separate subscriptions currently. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

This was very much a “Tale of Two Strategies” for Back Lucrative, which is a horse racing service that has two separate betting strategies it employs. One of the strategies, the Value Bets, really hosed up by making 180 points profit whilst the other strategy, the Banker Bets, rather fell at the first, losing 75 points

Overall though that’s still 105 points profit and given the consistency of the service over the years, which we first started following way back in 2015, it’s a definite PASSED rating from us. 

Given the overall profits made over the years and during our trial, we consider this one of the premier horse racing services out there and deserving of its high reputation. Grab a place whilst you still can.

Back Lucrative – Results Update

3rd August 2020 

It’s been another good month for horse racing service Back Lucrative, with 44 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 117 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

It remains something of a mixed picture however, with their Value Bets 133 points up, while their Banker Bets are 16 points down. It has been a much better month for the Banker Bets however with a profit of 39 points made. 

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

At Betfair SP the Value Bets are 22 points up whilst the Banker Bets are 18 points down, giving a total for our trial of +4 points. So it looks like this is a service where you need bookie accounts really to make it worthwhile. 

Anyway, we’ll be looking to wrap up this review shortly and unless something dramatic happens it is heading for a clear passed rating.

 

 

 

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

Back Lucrative – Results Update

3rd August 2020 

A small profit for horse racing service Back Lucrative over the last month, with 8 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

That means they are now 73 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

It remains a very mixed picture however, with their Value Bets 128 points up, while their Banker Bets are 55 points down

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

At Betfair SP the Value Bets are 23 points up whilst the Banker Bets are 65 points down, giving a total for our trial of -42 points.

So at the moment it looks like this is a service you need bookmaker accounts for to get the most out of it. If you have bookie accounts then the results for the Value Bets have been strong and are living up to the pre-trial billing.

Back Lucrative – Results Update

6th July 2020 

Horse racing service Back Lucrative has bounced back nicely following the covid break, making a profit of 105 points at advised prices since our last update back in April. 

That means they are now 65 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

It has been a mixed picture however, with their Value Bets actually being 129 points up, while their Banker Bets are 64 points down

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

At Betfair SP the Value Bets are 48 points up whilst the Banker Bets are 65 points down, giving a total for our trial of -17 points.

So it looks at the moment that the BSP results are falling quite a bit behind the advised prices. 

Anyway, good to see the improvement for Back Lucrative since racing resumed, let’s hope it continues.

Back Lucrative – Results Update

8th April 2020 

It’s been a tough start to our re-review of horse racing tipster Back Lucrative, with a loss of 40 points made at advised prices since our trial recommenced at the end of January. 

It has been a mixed picture however, with their Value Bets actually being 18 points up, while their Banker Bets are 58 points down

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

At Betfair SP the story is a little worse, with 62 points lost for our re-review so far (with the Value Bets 1 point up and the Banker Bets 63 points down). 

Obviously with racing suspended there are no selections for the time being. The latest from UK racing is that the early season classics – 1,000 Guineas, 2,000 Guineas and Derby – have been postponed until further notice. There are still plans for Royal Ascot to go ahead, with the Queen’s course making plans to hold races behind closed doors but they are dependent on the government allowing it to go ahead, so at the moment it’s up in the air as to whether that happens. 

Anyway, whenever racing does get going again let’s hope things pick up for Back Lucrative.

Back Lucrative Re-Review

30th January 2020 

Today we are going to take another look at a service we originally reviewed way back in 2015 and that is horse racing tipster Back Lucrative. 

In our original three month review it made a solid 27 points profit, resulting in a neutral rating. 

However, since 2015 it has gone on and produced some excellent results and demonstrated a superb level of consistency, adding another 1,000 points profit at a long-term ROI of over 12%

We often say here that longevity is the ultimate measure of a tipster’s quality and Back Lucrative have certainly demonstrated longevity in spades, having been running since 2013 and amassing over 1,600 points profit in total over that seven-year period. 

The yearly totals since our original review have been as follows:-

  • 2015: +376 points profit
  • 2016: +402 points profit
  • 2017: +57 points profit
  • 2018: +120 points profit
  • 2019: +247 points profit

So as you can see pretty awesome stuff, as also demonstrated in the graph below of compounding stakes (but only compounding up to a £50 maximum):

So the bank would be up to over £60,000 now since 2013 with a maximum risk of £50 stakes. 

Now with such impressive long-term results, the service has proved very, very popular as you can probably imagine and they therefore often close the service to new members for long periods. 

It has been closed to new members for some time now, but they are opening it up again for a brief window so we thought it would be a good time for us to have another look at the service given its stellar long-term record. 

So we will be launching a formal re-review today and will update results here during our trial. Hopefully we will see the same kind of steady, consistent growth they have generated over the last seven years. 

In the meantime if you want to check Back Lucrative out for yourself you can get a 7-day trial for just £1 here.

Back Lucrative Final Review

17th June 2015 

Here are the final results for our 3 month review of Back Lucrative:

 

Profit/loss: +27 pts (advised prices) / +9 pts (BSP)
Strike Rate: 14%
Bank Growth 13%
Cost: £7 for first 30 days then £32 / month
ROI: 5.6%
Average number of tips: 5 per day
VERDICT: NEUTRAL 

You can view full results here.

 

Back Lucrative Final Review

So we come to the end of our review of Back Lucrative, a horse racing tipster that promises to make you “up to £1179.50 every month.”

So did it deliver us £1179.50 every month?

Sadly not quite. It made 27 points profit at advised prices over three months and 9 points profit at Betfair SP (BSP), which isn’t bad going but at £10 per point equates to £90 per month. 

The trial actually started off very promisingly with over 50 points profit in March, which made us think we might be on to something special here.

But sadly April only managed to break even and May saw a loss of 20 points.

So no disasters overall and any profit a service manages to make should be welcomed.

However, following the service does require quite a bit of work. There are a large number of tips and to back them all at advised prices takes quite a bit of time. You also have to log in to the site rather than having the tips e-mailed to you, which adds to the time required.

So overall perhaps this one is worth a try – after all it did make a profit – but having made only a 13% growth in the bank over three months means it doesn’t quite merit a place on our recommended list.

Back Lucrative

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Quite time-consuming. First you have to log in to the site rather than having the tips e-mailed to you and then there are 5 tips per day on average, so backing them all at advised prices takes a while each day. 

Availability of prices: Fairly good – there was an 18 point difference between advised prices and Betfair SP, so not a massive difference over the course of 480 bets and generally you should be able to get the advised prices or close to them.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 14% so there will be some long losing runs when using this service. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point betting bank is advised, which seems sensible and should be more than adequate to cover the drawdowns. According to historic results, they have only had four losing months in just under two years, with the worst month being around a 20 point loss.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are fairly reasonable, at £7 for a 30 day trial, followed by £24.75 per month if you take the yearly subscription or £32 per month for the quarterly option.

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL 

Overall this one warrants a neutral rating. It made a profit which is good, but with only a 13% bank growth and 5.6% ROI over the course of 3 months and with the time involved in following the service, we feel it does not quite merit a place in our portfolio at the moment.

That is not to say it is not worth trying, but for us to recommend a system it has to be of the very highest quality and deliver good profits consistently that could provide a valuable second income.

This service didn’t quite manage that during our trial. However, if it could reproduce previous results then the rating could be upgraded, so we will keep an eye on this and update things accordingly.

Always Back Winners – Full Review

 

Always Back Winners is a horse racing service that specialises in the Class 3, 4 & 5 races where gambling stables like a touch or where improving horses can be ‘under the radar.’ 

They had very good long term results published on their website prior to our review so we were looking forward to seeing how it performed in our live trial. 

We ended up following the service for nine months, although three of those were over the covid break so effectively it was about a six month trial in terms of active racing/tipping. 

Tips are published on their website and you can get an e-mail when the tips are ready so you can log in and check them out. There are an average of 1-2 bets per day which makes it very manageable to follow. 

At the end of our extended trial we are pleased to say that the service performed very well, notching an excellent 105 points profit at a more-than-respectable return on investment of 21%

The strike was good at over 40% (including placed horses) so there was a steady stream of returns during our trial. 

As you can see from the graph below it was solid progress throughout the trial and they were never in deficit:

Plus there was a really nice end to the trial with three winners in a row!

The bank we used of 100 points more than doubled during our trial which is excellent work for six months betting and just under 250 bets.

The Betfair SP results were also good, with 52 points profit made during our trial, so almost exactly half of the advised price results. 

All in all then we are pleased to say the Always Back Winners has very much lived up to its name and PASSED our trial with flying colours! A top notch service and well worth adding to your portfolio. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are posted on their website (with e-mail notification) usually early in the morning around 8-9am (UK time) on the day of racing. With an average of just 1-2 bets per day it’s straightforward to follow the service. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice a huge amount of instant pressure on prices during our trial but the advised price returns were more than double those at BSP, so it is worth taking early prices if you can as the selections tend to get backed during the day. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 42% (including placed horses) which is pretty decent and meant a fairly steady stream of returns during our trial.  

Advised Betting Bank: They recommend using between 1.25% and 2.5% EW of the available bank on each selection, which would equate to a 40-80 point bank. However to be on the safe side we would think a 100 point bank would be more sensible and that is what we used for this trial. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are very reasonable given the excellent results at £25 per month or £120 for 6 months.  

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Horse racing service Always Back Winners certainly lived up to its name during our extended nine month trial and delivered an excellent 105 points profit at advised prices and 52 points profit at BSP.

That was achieved with a return on investment of 21% and represented a more than doubling of the betting bank which is a superb effort.

We are more than happy to award this service a PASSED rating therefore and would say it’s well worth adding to your portfolio. 

 

 

 

 


Always Back Winners – Results Update

14th July 2020

Horse racing service Always Back Winners has been in sparkling form, racking up another 42 points profit at advised prices since our last update just under a month ago. 

That means they have now broken through the magic one hundred point barrier for our trial overall, going exactly 100 points up at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP the story is also positive although not quite as good as at advised prices, with another 41 points profit made since our last update and 59 points profit made for our trial overall.

As mentioned before this is a selective service with just one or two bets per day making it very easy to follow and with results like these there’s lots to like about it.

Always Back Winners – Results Update

18th June 2020

Horse racing tipster Always Back Winners has got back in action following the restart of racing and has got back to winning ways too, with 9 points profit made at advised prices since racing resumed.

That means they are now 58 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they haven’t done quite as well but are still ahead, with 5 points profit made since our last update and 18 points profit made for our trial overall.

They have been taking quite a selective approach with just a few bets advised since racing resumed, which seems like a sensible approach to give the form a chance to settle down.

But they are still 49 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have lost 15 points since our last update but are 13 points up for our trial overall.

There is obviously no UK racing until May (at the earliest) so there are no selections for the time being as they do not tip in Irish racing. Let’s hope they can kick on once UK racing does resume.

Always Back Winners – Results Update

10th February 2020

It’s been a good time recently for all-weather horse racing specialist Always Back Winners, with 49 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 61 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

There is a little bit of a gap opening up between the advised price results and those at Betfair SP, with the latter having made 37 points profit since our last update and 28 points profit for our trial overall. That’s still a decent amount to have made at Betfair SP though, especially considering the staking is reasonable at an average of one point each way per bet.

Good to see the positive form recently, let’s hope it continues.

Always Back Winners – New Review

12th November 2019

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing service called Always Back Winners.

This is a service that focuses on flat racing, having made a profit in each of the three past flat turf seasons with reported totals of:

  • – 2017 – +231pts (to 1pt EW)
  • – 2018 – +125pts (to 1pt EW)
  • – 2019 – +90pts (to 1pt EW)

With the flat turf season having come to an end they are now turning their attention to the all weather racing over the Winter.  

That has got off to a good start too, with winners at 20/1 and 16/1 already after just one month and an ROI  of over 76% so they are in red hot form. 

They provide around 6-10 bets per week, all at north of 8/1 looking for a win strike rate in excess of 12% and a place in excess of 40% to generate long term profits.

In terms of a betting bank they advise backing between 1.25% and 2.5% EW of the available bank, which seems reasonable to us given the results achieved to date and the odds tipped at.

They tend to specialise in the Class 3, 4 & 5 races where gambling stables like a touch or where improving horses can be ‘under the radar’ as far as being tipped by the general scribes or press who concentrate on higher class racing.

From our understanding they are a trusted site and have been around for a while, so it looks like a decent service all round and we are looking forward to running a live trial of their tips. 

We started receiving tips on Friday 8th November so will start recording results from then and will update progress here during the review.

In the meantime you can check out Always Back Winners for yourself here.

Loves Racing – Full Review

 

Loves Racing is a horse racing tipster service provided by a guy called Brett Love who started adult life as a professional footballer but when injury cut that career short Brett turned to pro gambling and more recently tipping to a select group of private clients.

Brett has established quite a reputation for himself since he went live to paying members in November 2017, apparently amassing over 450 points profit in the 18 months prior to our review commencing. 

It’s an interesting approach to tipping in that Brett concentrates solely on the big races and festivals, so the vast majority of tips come at the weekends and there aren’t normally tips during the week, unless there is a big festival like Cheltenham or Royal Ascot happening.

That means it’s quite an easy service to follow in terms of workload and as he only tips in big races, prices tend to hold up pretty well too. 

Brett provides detailed write-ups for his selections and you can see he puts a lot of time into his work and really knows his stuff. 

On to the important part though, how did the results stack up during our review? 

We are pleased to report that the results were very good, with a profit of 65 points made to advised prices during our six month trial.

That was achieved with a strike rate of 19% and an excellent return on investment of 26%

It was quite a steady performer throughout the trial and was only very briefly down at any point, as you can see below:

The Betfair SP results weren’t quite as good but were still profitable, with 27 points profit made over the course of our trial. 

As an added bonus there are festival tips which Brett sends out. He advises a separate betting bank of 30 points for those and they made a decent 19 points profit during our trial at advised prices, boosting the overall profit made by Brett to 84 points. 

Given the very positive results achieved then at an impressive ROI, we have no hesitation in awarding Loves Racing a PASSED rating. We view this as a serious service for serious punters and could see it being around for quite a while. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are normally sent out the evening before racing at around 5-7pm UK time and then there are sometimes additional tips sent out early in the morning for that day’s racing. As mentioned above, tips are normally just sent at weekends (with the exception of the big festivals) so the workload is pretty low in following the service.  

Availability of prices: You do need to try and take the prices when the tips are sent out, although being big races prices tend to hold up better than for a lot of other services. The BSP results were still pretty good, but made less than half the profit of those of the advised prices, testament perhaps to Brett’s ability to find value. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 19%, so this is a service requiring a degree of patience, although over the history of the tips there doesn’t appear to have been any severe drawdowns, but of course one could hit at any time so being prepared for that is advisable. 

Advised Betting Bank: We couldn’t find any recommended bank for the service but with the strike rate and staking we think a 100 point bank should be sufficient and that is what we used for this trial.  

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are on the high side at £59.99/month so we think this would only be suitable for people able to stake at a sufficient level to make it worthwhile (e.g. at least £10-£20 per point).

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Brett Love is a respected tipster who has established a strong reputation for himself since he began tipping a couple of years ago and that reputation appears well deserved on the basis of our trial. 

With a profit of 65 points made at advised prices for his main tips and 19 points profit for his festival tips, we are happy to award Loves Racing a PASSED rating. The ROI was strong at 26% and the light workload makes it an attractive service to be a member of. 

The subscription costs are a little on the high side so you will need a decent betting bank (e.g. £1,000 – £2,000) to make it worthwhile but if you have that this looks like a top service to us and well worth adding to your portfolio.

Loves Racing – Results Update

4th September 2019

More profits for Loves Racing over the last month, with another 23 points made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 43 points up at advised prices for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

The Festival Bets also had an excellent month, with 33 points profit made since our last update and 27 points profit made for our trial overall. 

We are starting to see Mr Love live up to the pre-trial billing and produce some strong results which is encouraging. From the detailed write-ups that accompany the tips you certainly get the impression he is a serious professional and the results for our trial are now reflecting that. Let’s hope it continues.

Loves Racing – Results Update

10th August 2019

It’s been a decent month for Loves Racing, with 14 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 20 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it hasn’t been quite so good though with 6 points lost since our last update and 6 points lost for our trial overall. That is partly down to one horse however who won but was then subsequently demoted to second, so the bookies would have paid out but Betfair goes with the official result of second place.

There are also festival bets given out by Mr Love and so far those are 12 points down for our trial.

Loves Racing – Results Update

10th June 2019

Loves Racing continues to move along steadily, adding another 8 points profit at advised prices since our last update a month ago.

That means he is now 19 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it has also been a decent month, with another 7 points profit made and 13 points profit made for the trial overall.

As Brett mentioned in his previous e-mail the weather is making things tricky with the changing ground conditions, but he is still making a profit which is good to see so hopefully that will continue even if the weather doesn’t settle down!

Loves Racing – Results Update

4th May 2019

It’s been a decent start to our trial of Loves Racing, with a profit of 11 points made so far to advised prices after one month. 

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP the results haven’t been quite as good but are also in profit, with 6 points profit made so far. 

Brett tends to just tip in the big races and at weekends, so there are quite a few days without any bets. That’s fine though as there tends to be more liquidity and prices hold up better in the big races.

He also tips in the festivals as a separate service and those bets are currently 6 points down for our trial. 

Back soon with more updates.

Loves Racing – New Review

29th March 2019

We have a very promising horse racing service called Loves Racing which we are starting a review of today as the flat season is just about to get underway.

The service is provided by a guy called Brett Love who started adult life as a professional footballer but when injury cut that career short Brett turned to pro gambling and more recently tipping to a select group of private clients.

Brett has established quite a reputation for himself and since he went live to paying members in November 2017 the service has apparently recorded a profit of 212.42 points and a 32% ROI.

Darren Power of the Betting Insiders Club said of the service:

“These results are amazing… …if I hadn’t seen the proofing mails come in before racing with my own eyes I’d have thought these were made up results.

I truly believe that these are the best results I’ve ever seen from a tipster.”

That’s quite a statement to make but given the results achieved to date it isn’t actually that outlandish. 

The service has just opened to new members today and if you join this weekend (i.e. by 1st April 2019) you will get:

 – A substantial discount on the normal subscription price;
 – Brett’s festival selections, which last year made 115 points of profit at a 41% ROI;
 – And his Rating Selections which produced an additional 138 points profit at a whopping 78% ROI.

So overall that’s 465 points profit across Brett’s various tips over the last 18 months. That would be £4,650 profit to £10 stakes or £11,625 to £25 stakes.  

Please note the special discounted prices and extra bonuses are only available until Monday 1st April 2019 however.

We think this is a very promising service so are looking forward to doing a full review of it. As usual we will update results here during the trial so you can see how things are going. 

In the meantime you can check out Loves Racing here.
