Master Racing Tipster – Re-Review

One of the first services we ever reviewed here at Honest Betting Reviews – way back in 2015 – was a service called Master Racing Tipster. 

It sailed through our original trial back in 2015 (see below), making over 100 points profit at a very high return on investment. At that time we believed it was a top service and indeed it proved to be so over our extended 20 month proofing period, amassing 361 points profit in that time. 

We have continued tracking the service over the years including after it moved home from the Betting Gods tipster platform to Tipping Gurus (and now being named just “Master Racing” for short).

The service has remained one of the very best horse racing tipsters out there, reaching the heady heights of 847 points profit made since they began tipping in 2014.

The return on investment has remained consistently high at over 21%, a rare and impressive achievement over the course of more than six years.

Master Racing has been the model of consistency, as you can see from the profit graph below:

That’s the kind of steady and upward profit graph we love to see! 

We have been meaning to take another look at Master Racing for a while now, but the service has recently undergone something of a revamp which piqued our interest further and initiated this re-review.

Basically Master Racing is now providing its selections on the morning of racing rather than the night before and is recording all results to Betfair SP. 

That makes it very appealing to the many people who have had their bookie accounts restricted and are just looking for a tipster they can follow on Betfair. 

Certainly if the results hold up at BSP it would make Master Racing a very attractive proposition indeed.

Add to that the stellar results so far this year:

  • – January: +10.8 points
  • – February: +2.88 points
  • – March: +17.1 points
  • – April: 0 points (no racing)
  • – May: +7 points
  • – June: -0.5 points
  • – July: +44.4 points
  • – August: +22.8 points
  • – September: +23.1 points
  • – October: +2.62 points

And it’s one we just can’t resist getting involved with again!

So we are commencing a re-review of the service today under these new parameters and are hopeful we will see its steady and consistent results repeated again under trial conditions. As ever results will be updated here as we go along. 

In the meantime you can check out Master Racing (Tipster) for yourself here.

Master Racing Tipster – 20 Month Update

2nd February 2017

Here at Honest Betting Reviews we don’t believe in trialing a tipster for just three months and then forgetting about them.

We believe in following them for long periods of time, to give as fair and accurate a picture of the tipster’s performance as possible.

For example, we have been proofing the tips of the Master Racing Tipster for over 20 months now, a really good period to be able to judge a tipster.  

It is also high time for an update on how things have been going.

Previously, we gave Master Racing Tipster a five star rating after our original three month trial and after six months. 

So how have things gone in the intervening 14 months since our last update?

 

Results Update

Well, we are pleased to report they have gone very well, with another 187 points of profit added to the 174 points made during the first six months we followed the Master.

That means the Master Racing Tipster has made 361 points profit over the 20 months we have followed the tips.

If you had staked at £25 per point, that would have amounted to £9025 profit. Not a bad little second income! 🙂 

Here’s a look at the results in graph format:

Master Racing Tipster Profit Graph

As you can see, it is an excellent profit graph with steady growth over the course of more than 900 bets placed during the period we have been following the tips.

There was a small decline in the middle as results stagnated for a period, but those who have stuck with the service over the long term have been richly rewarded.

Incredibly, those results have been achieved with a return on investment of over 30%, which is almost unheard of over such a long period and certainly puts the Master Racing Tipster up there with the very best in the industry.

The strike rate has been a healthy 28% as well, so a good proportion of winners.

 

OVERALL VERDICT:

Master Racing Tipster remains undoubtedly one of the best horse racing tipsters out there and well worthy of a continued 5-star rating. 

Few tipsters can perform so consistently over a long period and the Master has done so amazingly well, with over 360 points profit made during the 20 months we have proofed the tips.

If you haven’t added this to your portfolio then we suggest doing so as soon as you can. 

And the good news is that you can get a 14-day trial for just £5 here by using the code HBMASTER at checkout.

Master Racing Tipster – Six Month Update

26th June 2015

We now have over six months of proofed results for Master Racing Tipster and are pleased to report that it has continued to perform excellently since the end of our trial in June.

Since the trial concluded on 26th June 2015, they have added another 59 points of profit at advised prices and another 31 points profit at Betfair SP.

That means in total for the six months we have been following them, Master Racing Tipster have made 174 points profit at advised prices and 109 points profit at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

Here is a graph of the profit over the six month period: 

 

Master Racing Tipster Profit Graph

 

As you can see, an excellent profit graph – pretty much all just steady growth with very little drawdown at all.

At advised prices we have had just under 350% bank growth – so if you had started off with a bank of £1,000 it would now be worth £4,500. Very impressive stuff.

And at Betfair SP, whilst the results are somewhat lower, you would still have achieved over 200% bank growth -no mean feat either.

All that has been achieved with a 54% return on investment and a 32% strike rate, which really is fantastic.

Conclusion

Overall we are pleased to say that after six months Master Racing Tipster continues to merit a 5 star rating and its place as our number 1 tipster.

Make sure you get on board whilst places are still available.

Master Racing Tipster Final Review

We have come to the end of our three month trial of Master Racing Tipster and what can we say apart from…WOW! And we mean WOW!

We thought when Banker Bets made 95% profit in three months and nearly doubled the bank over the course of the trial, it might never be beaten.

How wrong we were!

Master Racing Tipster has gone and more than trebled the bank in three months! That means if you had started off with £1,000 at the beginning of the trial, you would have £3,300 now.

The service managed a phenomenal 83% return on investment (ROI) over the three months, which we have rarely seen in over a decade of following tipsters. 

Sometimes a tipster can rack up impressive profits just by bagging one or two really big priced winners (like a 100/1 shot) that distort their figures and make them look amazing.

That has not been the case here though. The highest price winner was 12/1 and the strike rate was a very healthy 34%, so the service showed an excellent level of consistency. 

Here is a graph of the results over the course of the trial:

Master Racing Tipster Betting Graph

As you can see, just nice steady profit all the way – a punter’s dream!

You always get a full write-up for the selections which is reassuring and you can see the logic behind the tips.

The service is based on good old fashioned form study and seems to focus on well-handicapped horses – those that have suitable conditions, a jockey claiming a few pounds off, that can be forgiven a recent bad run or a combination of factors meaning they are good value.

The approach certainly worked over our trial anyway! 🙂

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Good – it’s an easy service to follow as well with just an average of one bet per day so minimal work on your part.

Availability of prices: OK – tips are e-mailed out the evening before racing and you want to get your bets on as quickly as possible. We found that generally you can get close to advised prices if you get your bets on within an hour or so of the tips being sent out.

Sometimes it is difficult because only a couple of bookies will have priced up when bets are sent out, so if that is the case you may want to be a bit careful and not lump on too heavily as bookies don’t like it when big bets are placed as soon as odds are priced up the evening before racing.

If you wait until the next day then generally prices will have fallen quite a bit. 

However, they still managed to make 78 points profit at Betfair SP (BSP) which is a very healthy 156% bank growth, so even if you just bet at Betfair SP you should still do nicely.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was very good at 34%, which makes the results look even more impressive because generally you are getting a good ratio of winners so can stake at reasonable levels.

Advised Betting Bank: The advised betting bank is 50 points, which seems fine given the 34% strike rate achieved during our trial and the long-term strike rate of 31%.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are fairly reasonable for a service of this quality with the first month at £1 followed by £59.95 per month, £154.95 per quarter, or £359.95 for life.

Certainly we have seen services with results like this one charge upwards of £1,000 per year, so we think the subscription costs are good value for what you are getting.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

We have no hesitation whatsoever in placing this on our approved list – with bells on!

To have more than trebled the bank in three months is amazing stuff.

In total the service has been running for over a year and has racked up over 300 points profit.

Now we can’t verify the results before our trial started but all our experience with having monitored Horse Racing Bettinga number of Betting Gods’ services is that their results are fully accurate so we have no reason to doubt the past results.

Our only word of warning is on prices – you may not be able to quite match the advised prices. Even at Betfair SP you would have made 78 points profit though, which is still very impressive.

We would expect in reality you will achieve somewhere between the Betfair SP results and the advised results without too much bother. 

So all in all it really has been a fantastic trial and we would advise getting on board whilst you can – there is always a risk with a service as good as this that they have to limit numbers at some point to protect prices, otherwise it could become unworkable.

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.

A small dip in form for horse racing service Always Back Winners recently, with a loss of 12 points at advised prices since our last update.

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

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.

Vision Racing – Full Review

 

Vision Racing is a horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods platform of tipsters and they provide an average of around two tips per day for UK and Irish racing. 

The service is run by a guy called Marcus and he certainly seems to know his stuff, with excellent results produced during our trial. 

In total after six months of following the tips and over 400 bets, the service made a very commendable 117 points profit to advised prices.

That was to an average of 1 point stakes, which makes it even more impressive and is reflected in the excellent return on investment (ROI) of 28%. 

The strike rate was good too at 21% (including placed horses) and we also liked the consistency of the service, with the monthly totals during our review being as follows:-

  • – July: +£131 profit
  • – August: +£66 profit
  • – September: +£634 profit
  • – October: +£12 profit
  • – November: -£20 loss
  • – December: +£370 profit
  • – January: +£195 profit

So as you can see only one losing month and that was a very small amount, with the rest being winning months including some big ones. 

You can see this steady growth also reflected in the profit graph for the trial. 

At Betfair SP the results were good too, with a profit of 72 points made during our trial. 

All in all then there is a great deal to like about Vision Racing and we have no hesitation in awarding it a PASSED rating. Definitely one to consider adding to the portfolio. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are normally sent out the morning of racing at between 8am and 9am GMT, so plenty of time to get the bets on. With an average of just 2 bets per day it’s a very simple service to follow. 

Availability of prices: Prices do tend to get pushed in so we recommend taking early prices if you can, but as stated above the service is still profitable at BSP so is practical to follow even if you don’t have bookie accounts.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 21% (including placed horses) which is pretty solid although does mean there could be some losing runs along the way, so be prepared for that. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 150 point bank is recommended for following the service which seems a reasonable amount to us and was certainly never in jeopardy at any stage of our trial. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £1.99 for the first 15 days then £37 per month. 

There is a full money-back guarantee for the first 30 days. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

There is a lot to like about Vision Racing: excellent, consistent profits; a high return on investment; a high ratio of winnings months; profitable at BSP; just two bets per day on average. What more could you ask for from a tipster really? 

So it definitely merits a PASSED rating from us and deserves a place in anyone’s betting portfolio. If you haven’t joined up yet grab your 15 day trial for just £1.99 now and start enjoying this high quality racing service.

Vision Racing – New Review

11th July 2019

Today we are starting a new review of a horse racing service from the Betting Gods platform called Vision Racing.

This is a service that’s made over £1,500 profit so far to just £10 stakes since starting up in October last year. According to the results on the Betting Gods website they have achieved that at an impressive return on investment of over 22%.

Marcus who runs the service focuses on generating big wins at long odds. It’s why selections from Vision Racing have average odds of 11.80. It’s certainly paying off in the long run!

The service has shown a strong level of consistency so far with eight out of nine months being profitable which is good to see.

Average monthly profit stands at over £150/month at just £10 per point, a very commendable amount to have racked up.

Staking is pretty reasonable with most stakes being one point which we like to see, so they are not trying to artificially inflate results with fancy staking. 

We started receiving tips on 6th July so will record results from then, with regular updates here on the website.

In the meantime you can check out Vision Racing here.

Racing Intelligence – Full Review

 

Every once in a while here at Honest Betting Reviews we come across a real gem of a service – something that works a little differently from the many other services we see day-in, day-out and that’s found an angle to generate consistent, long-term profit. 

Coming into our trial we felt that could be the case with Racing Intelligence – and for once we are pleased to say we weren’t disappointed!

Racing Intelligence is a little different to most other services in that it does not rely on form reading, ratings or any of the traditional ways that tipsters operate. In fact, it is not really a “tipster” at all. Instead its selections are provided by an inside man at one of the leading UK bookmakers who gets to see where all the “smart money” is being placed for that day’s racing. 

He gets to see where the big gambles are going, the professional money is being placed and where there is likely to be significant value. That info is then passed straight on to members of the service.

Normally we would be skeptical of such claims of “inside info” but on this occasion we have no doubt whatsoever this is the real deal.

Not only have we seen the results prior to our trial proofed by a reputable source elsewhere, which showed 672 points profit coming into our review, but now we have six months of own proofed results and wow have we been impressed!

A superb 192 points profit was made at advised prices during our six-month trial, which represents a very nearly doubling of the advised betting bank of 200 points. 

As you can see from the profit graph below, they were never really in deficit and built strongly over the middle part of the trial with another burst at the end:-

Those results were achieved with a very good strike rate of 40% (including placed horses) and a commendable ROI of 19%. 

At Betfair SP the results were solid too, with a nice 76 points profit made during our trial. 

The consistency is excellent too, with 10 out of 12 months this year having been profitable and 23 out of 30 months overall having made a profit.  

So we have no hesitation in awarding this service a PASSED rating and giving it our first five star award for some time. 

As we say, we like that they approach betting from a different angle of looking at where the smart money is being placed rather than typical form study and it’s clear this information has huge value. 

It’s credit to Matthew Walton (who runs the service) for having found this source of information and we can only hope both the source and Matthew continue sharing the info for a long time to come!

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are sent out during morning of racing and come in individually as the information is received, as it is obviously “hot off the press” so is passed on straight away for members to snap up the value. That means you’ll sometimes get three or four e-mails (or texts if you choose that option) during the morning at various times, with Matthew then summarising the day’s bets in one final e-mail, usually around lunchtime or shortly before racing starts. 

With an average of 1-2 bets per day following the service isn’t too onerous by any means. 

Availability of prices: Prices do tend to get pushed in so we recommend taking early prices if you can, but as stated above the service is still profitable at BSP so is practical to follow even if you don’t have bookie accounts.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 40% (including placed horses) which is more than acceptable and is very close to the long-term strike rate for the service of 39%. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is recommended for following the service which seems a reasonable amount to us and was certainly never in jeopardy at any stage of our trial. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are high, but that is understandable given the quality of information being received and it also helps protect prices for members. The subscription costs are £58.20 for the first month then £97+VAT per month after that.

There is a full money-back guarantee for the first 30 days. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

With a profit of 192 points made at advised prices during our six month trial, to go with the profits stacked up previously (which have been proofed by a reputable source elsewhere), Racing Intelligence has made a total of over 850 points profit betting each-way or over 1,100 points profit if betting win-only since starting up two and a half years ago.

Those are outstanding results and we are more than happy to award this a PASSED rating and to place it right towards the very top of our list of recommended horse racing services.

The subscription costs are high so you will need a decent-sized bank to make it worthwhile, but if you have that then this really is a service to get on board with and start profiting from the invaluable info it provides.

And the good news is we’ve managed to negotiate an exclusive discount for HBR readers of 50% off the first month’s subscription which you can get here.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

30th November 2019

A little bit of a correction for Racing Intelligence this month, with a loss of 14 points made at advised prices since our last update.

The good news though is that they are still 153 points up at advised prices for our trial overall after the excellent previous results.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have lost 8 points since our last update but are still 65 points up for our trial overall.

As Matthew points out on the emails, it is important to keep a long-term mindset and not let a small drawdown this month detract from the long-term picture which has been very good indeed.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

28th October 2019

It’s been a cracking time for Racing Intelligence since our last update, with a whopping 109 points profit made at advised prices over the last five weeks. 

That means they are now an excellent 167 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

Things have also been progressing well at BSP, with another 73 points profit made since our last update and 84 points profit made for our trial overall. 

It’s great to see a service living up to its pre-trial billing and delivering some excellent results under live conditions. This is looking like a really top service in the making.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

19th September 2019

It’s been a solid month for Racing Intelligence, with 9 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

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

You can view full results here.

The good news is they are now up at Betfair SP for our review aswell, with 17 points made since our last update and 11 points profit made for our trial overall.  

It’s been a bit up and down during the review in truth, with a high of 87 points up followed by dropping down to just 3 points up, and then bouncing back again to 58 points up. For those with an appropriate betting bank and a long-term mindset that wouldn’t have been a problem, but unfortunately for those who dropped out after the losing run they have now missed out on the subsequent profits. 

Anyway, as we say overall the results have been good so let’s look for them to kick on from here.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

15th August 2019

More profits for Racing Intelligence since our last update, with another 19 points profit added at advised prices over the past month. 

That means they are now 49 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it continues to be a bit more of a struggle. Although a profit of 2 points was made since our last update, they are still 6 points down at BSP for our trial overall. 

Their long term BSP results are very good so this may just be a small blip but we will keep an eye on it and hopefully they will have moved into profit at Betfair SP aswell by the time of our next update.

Racing Intelligence – Results Update

10th July 2019

It’s been a strong start to our trial of Racing Intelligence, with a profit of 30 points made so far to advised prices after one month.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP things haven’t been quite as good, with a loss of 8 points made for our trial so far.

Just a note that the Racing Intelligence spy has been working away for the past 10 days, this has meant it’s been very quiet on the betting front lately but he is due to return shortly so we expect the pace to pick up next week. 

Still, a good start all in all from this service.

Racing Intelligence – New Review

10th June 2019

Today we are looking at a new racing service called Racing Intelligence and we have to say we are more than intrigued by its proposition. 

Whilst regular readers will know we are generally sceptical of tipsters claiming they have special access to “inside info,” this one comes with an interesting twist on that idea – and has the results to back it up.

Normally we dismiss talk of “inside info” because frankly despite having seen dozens of tipsters claim they have access to it, we are yet to see a single one of those tipsters actually deliver a long-term profit. In short most of it is just marketing BS. 

Those tipsters who do make a consistent profit – like Quentin Franks, the Bet Alchemist and so on – do so due to hours of hard work and diligence in how they study races and form. 

In the case of this tipster however, the “inside info” they claim to use is a little different – it is actually the bookies’ inside info. 

So rather than looking to gather information from stables, trainers and so on, they are apparently able to gather intell directly from inside a bookie, as they work for one.

Inside this bookie they see the winning accounts of their elite customers and which bets those customers are placing – referred to as “markers” in the industry  – and then pass on those bets to subscribers to place themselves.

The results of the service – which have been proofed elsewhere – are absolutely top-notch and suggest this approach is highly effective. 

Since starting up two years ago they have made a superb 672 points profit at general bookies’ prices if betting each-way and an incredible 933 points profit if betting win-only. 

Those have been achieved with returns on investment of 24% and 34% respectively,  which is top-class stuff. 

In addition they have demonstrated a remarkable level of consistency, with 19 of their 24 months so far having been profitable. 

The really good news though is that the service is even profitable at Betfair SP, with a profit of 364 points made betting win and place on the exchange and 571 points if betting win-only at BSP.

Those are the some of the best BSP results we have seen and if they can be repeated during a live trial will mean this service may well achieve the “holy-grail” of being able to generate a substantial profit at Betfair.

That remains to be seen of course so we will reserve our judgement until we have seen the service in action and what kind of results it achieves. 

So we will run a standard three-month trial and will report back soon on how things are going.

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

Tipping Point – Full Review

 

We have been proofing the tips of horse racing tipster Tipping Point from the Punt Hub stable for a full six months now which has provided a very extensive sample size of over 1100 bets.

Coming into the trial results looked very good, albeit over just a few months so not enough time to judge the service properly. 

In many cases the results after just a short period could be just down to luck rather than someone being a skilled tipster. That is why we see services struggle so often during a live trial after having very strong looking results over a period of three to six months previous.

This time however we are pleased to say that Tipping Point has lived up to the pre-trial billing and produced some excellent results over a full six month review.

In total they amassed an excellent 113 points profit at advised prices, at a decent return on investment (ROI) of 11% and a solid strike rate of 24%. 

Looking at the monthly totals during our review period, they were very consistent:

 

MonthProfit/Loss
May +68 points
June +3 points
July -2 points  
August +35 points
September -1 point
October +18 points
November +5 points

So as you can see, very consistent monthly totals. The two losing months were for very small amounts and the rest made decent profits. 

At Betfair SP the results weren’t quite as good with a profit of 34 points made for our trial. So whilst that is still a respectable profit, really if you are going to make the most out of the service it pays to have bookie accounts.

Overall though given they more than doubled the starting bank during our trial, we have no hesitation in awarding Tipping Point a PASSED rating, with bells on!

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Most of the tips are sent out the evening before racing, via Telegram or e-mail, at various times between 1700 and 2100. There are also some tips sent in the morning. With an average of 6 tips per day following the service does require a little more time than some others but it is no by means overly onerous. 

Availability of prices: Prices do tend to get pushed in so we recommend taking early prices if you can.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 24% which is pretty solid, and thankfully there were no extensive drawdowns to speak of during our trial. 

Advised Betting Bank: We couldn’t find any bank recommended for following 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 very reasonable for a service of this quality at £15 for the first month then £30/month or £70/quarter. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

It’s been an excellent trial for horse racing service Tipping Point with 113 points profit made over the course of our six month review, which represented a more than doubling of our betting bank. 

With very consistent monthly totals and a solid ROI figure of 11%, we are more than happy to award it a PASSED rating and it is one to definitely consider adding to the portfolio.

With the excellent previous results however they are still 85 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

There’s quite a big difference between the results at advised prices and those at BSP, with 17 points lost at BSP since our last update and 26 points profit made for our trial overall. 

We now have nearly 1000 bets for our trial which is an excellent sample size and more than enough to wrap up our review next month, with hopefully some more profits to report.

Tipping Point – Results Update

16th September 2019

It’s been an excellent month for horse racing service Tipping Point, with 45 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now exactly 100 points up for our trial overall at advised prices, which is impressive stuff. 

You can view full results here.

Although the results at Betfair SP aren’t quite as good, they are still decent with 36 points profit made since our last update and 43 points profit made for our trial overall. 

We now have a sample size of over 800 bets which is a very good number and suggests they do have a clear edge over the market to have made a profit over such a large number of selections. As long as you are comfortable with the high bet volume then this looks like a top service to be a member of.

At Betfair SP it’s been somewhat of a worse month with 35 points lost since our last update, taking them to 7 points up for the trial overall.

Let’s hope they can bounce back this month and get back on track.

At Betfair SP there has been a small loss over the last month, with 5 points lost since our last update. However, they are still a healthy 42 points up for our trial overall at BSP.

As mentioned last time this is a high volume service with an average of around 6 bets per day so there is a little bit of work involved in following the service but so far it looks well worth it!

At Betfair SP the results have also been excellent, with a profit of 47 points made for our trial to date.

Tipping Point – New Review

11th May 2019

Today we are starting a trial of a new horse racing tipster from the Punt Hub tipster platform. 

This one is called Tipping Point and it’s been causing quite a stir in the Punthub community with some stellar results since going live. 

In less then 3 months of live tipping to Punthub it has made 78 points profit to advised prices or 35 points at BSP. 

Results since July 2018 are very impressive, with 1023 selections of which 245 have won (23.9% strike rate). Those bets have generated a profit of 317 points (Betfair SP) or 453 points profit (Bets odds), which is obviously awesome stuff.

The system has only had 1 losing month to Betfair SP and no losing months to best odds guaranteed (BOG). Quite remarkably both sets of results show very good return on investment at 31% to Betfair, or a huge 44% to best odds.

Although results prior to March haven’t been published, we have found Punthub to be a reliable and transparent platform so wouldn’t doubt those results have been achieved. 

As always however, what counts is how they do under the spotlight of a live trial, so let’s reserve our judgement until we have seen them in action for a while. 

This is quite a high-volume service with as many as 10 bets per day on busy days so there is a bit of work involved in following it but the results so far suggest it would be worth it. 

Tips can be received through both e-mail and Telegram which is good to see. 

We have been receiving tips since 30th April so will record results from then and will update things here regularly during the review.

In the meantime you can check out Tipping Point here.

QF Value Tips – Three Year Update

Here at HBR our aim is not just to do reviews and then forget about them but continue to monitor services to ensure they continue to perform to a high level over the long term. 

So with three years passed since our original review of QF Value Tips (see below), we thought it was more than high time for an update. 

QF Value Tips is a sister service to the highly successful and much-acclaimed Quentin Franks Racing, with the tips provided by the very same man. The only difference being that the selections for QF Value Tips are provided the night before racing where as for Quentin Franks Racing they are provided on the morning of racing (besides the occasional ante-post tip).

Given the exceptional quality of the main Quentin Franks service, with over £14,000 profit made to date to just £10 stakes, it was no surprise that QF Value Tips also received a passed rating back in our original review of 2016. 

So how has the service performed since then?

We are pleased to say it has performed very well, with a total profit now of over 500 points made – or £5,000 to just £10 stakes. 

That’s an additional 230 points profit since our review ended, which is excellent going. Most tipsters we review aren’t even still going three years later, let alone still churning out the profit, so Quentin deserves a lot of praise for that. 

The return on investment (ROI) has remained around 20% for the duration of the service which is also a strong effort over such a sustained period. 

The strike rate isn’t bad either at over 25% and it’s a very easy service to follow with an average of just one bet per day.

So all in all QF Value Tips is well worthy of its continued PASSED rating and we actually think it deserves a bit of an upgrade from four stars to four and a half stars.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Very few tipsters stand the test of time and are still going a year after our review of them ends, let alone still churning out the profits three years later. QF Value Tips has managed to do that though, adding another 230 points profit since our original review ended to stand at over 500 points profit made overall. 

With his outstanding main service, there is no doubt Quentin Franks is one of the very best tipsters out there and his two services compliment each other very nicely. So if you aren’t a member of both already it is probably time to sign up!

QF Value Tips – Full Review

 

QF Value Tips is a spin-off of the very successful horse racing tipster Quentin Franks Racing, which we have reviewed previously and got a rating of 5 stars, an exceptional achievement.

Whilst the main Quentin Franks Racing tips in the morning of racing, QF Value Tips provides selections the evening before racing, looking for value in the early bookies’ prices.

And from the results over our trial, he is rather good at it too!

Making 53 points over the trial was a very decent effort and compliments the main Quentin Franks tips nicely.

Here you can see the profit graph for the trial:

QF Value Tips Profit Graph

Things got off to a slow start but really picked up and grew nicely during the trial. 

You do need to back the tips as soon as possible after they are sent out though, at certainly in the evening before racing, as the results at Betfair SP were considerably lower, with just 10 points profit being made during our trial.

However, as long as you can do that, then this is well worth adding to your betting portfolio.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: QF Value Tips is a fairly easy service to use with just a couple of bets per day, sent out in the evening. 

Availability of prices: Prices reduce fairly significantly by the off, which is no doubt due to the fact that they are value prices. So you want to get your bets on as soon as possible after tips are sent out. From our trial it seemed as if there was limited value at Betfair SP.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 23%, which is reasonable but means a degree of patience will be required when following this service.

Advised Betting Bank: No betting bank was advised, but we used a 100 point bank for the trial, which should be enough to cover losing runs. 

Subscription costs: Subscription costs are £1.99 for the first 15 days then £17 per month.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

QF Value Tips is a spin-off from the very successful horse racing tipster Quentin Franks Racing. 

Not surprisingly from someone who has achieved such excellent with his main service, Quentin has also delivered excellent returns with QF Value Tips as well.

A profit of 53 points was made over the trial at advised prices, which is decent stuff and is deserving of a recommended rating in our view.

The only thing to note is that if you don’t have any bookie accounts left, this may not be the service for you as results at Betfair SP were quite a bit lower, with only 10 points profit being made.

But other than that, an excellent trial again and QF Value Tips is well worth adding to your betting portfolio!

QF Value Tips – Results Update

11th August 2016

It has been a decent few weeks for QF Value Tips, who have picked up 34 points of profit at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 37 points up overall for the trial.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have added 22 points of profit, bringing them to 2 points up overall.

Good to see Quentin adding more profits to all those gained from his main Quentin Franks Racing service.

Back soon with our final review.

QF Value Tips – Results Update

18th July 2016

It has continued to be a quiet time for QF Value Tips, with just 4 points of profit added since our last update a month ago. 

That means the service is 3 points in profit for the trial as a whole at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

Things have been a little trickier at Betfair SP, with the results being 20 points down at BSP.

That is perhaps not surprising, given that the service is based on taking prices the evening before racing. By the time you get to the off, the value has probably gone.

So let’s hope things get going for QF Value Tips over the last month of the trial.

As an aside, the main Quentin Franks Racing tips have been going great guns, notching an amazing 82 points of profit this month so far, meaning he has now made over 600 points profit since the service started just two years ago. 

Impressive stuff indeed.

QF Value Tips – Results Update

18th June 2016

QF Value Tips is the second service from Quentin Franks, one of the very best horse racing tipsters we have come across here at Honest Betting Reviews. 

The QF Tips differ from the original Quentin Franks Racing tips by being sent the evening before racing rather than the day of racing. 

We are just under a month into our trial and things have been quiet so far, with the tips being just 1 point down to date at advised prices and 14 points down at Betfair SP.  

You can view full results here.

Things were helped with a couple of very nice winners at Royal Ascot, in the shape of Defrocked at 12/1 and Primitivo at 8/1.

Let’s hope for more of the same over the rest of the trial – we will report back soon with how things are progressing.

 

 

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

QF Value Tips – New Review

26th May 2016

One of the very best horse racing tipsters we have reviewed so far here at Honest Betting Reviews is Quentin Franks Racing.

In under two years of tipping, Quentin has made over 500 points profit at a return on investment of over 18%.

He has shown remarkable consistency, with 10 of the last 11 months having been profitable.

So when Quentin decided to launch an additional tipping service, we were understandably very interested to see what was on offer.

The additional service is called QF Value Tips and differs from Quentin’s main offering in providing tips the evening before racing rather than the day of racing.

Thus QF Value Tips aim to maximise the value in the early bookmakers’ prices to try and make a profit.

And the news so far is good, with QF Value Tips having made 180 points profit at a return on investment of just under 25% in eight months of tipping.

So it looks like it may well be a very useful additional service to add to the portfolio and top up the monthly profits.

We are interested to see how the prices hold up and will run a normal three month review of QF Value Tips to see how it gets on.

Check back here for regular updates.

In the meantime, you can check out QF Value Tips 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.

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

18th July 2019

A bit of a pullback for Loves Racing recently, with 13 points lost since our last update at advised odds. 

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

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have lost 13 points since our last update, which takes them back to level for the trial overall at BSP. 

Let’s hope they can get back on the profit trail and we have more positive news to report in our next update.

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.

Russell Blair Racing – Final Review

We have reached the end of our seven month trial of Russell Blair Racing and here are the final results:-

 

Profit/Loss:  +305 points
Strike Rate:  9%
Bank Growth:  150%
ROI:  27%
Average number of bets:  3 per day
Cost:  Free for first 14 days then £39.99/month or £99.99/quarter
VERDICT:  PASSED
Rating:

Russell Blair Racing – Full Review

 

This is the second time we have reviewed Russell Blair Racing, having originally looked at the service back in 2016. It did very well in that original trial, making 214 points profit in three months.

Having kept an eye on the service since that original review, we decided to take another detailed look at its performance three years later, including things like how the prices stood up, the Betfair SP results, bank size needed and so on.

So we have now completed another review – seven months and over 500 bets this time – giving us a very good picture of the service. 

We are pleased to say that Russell has performed excellently once again, making over 300 points profit at advised prices at a superb return on investment of 27%. That equates to over £3,000 profit to £10 stakes or £7,500 profit to £25 stakes. 

The results represented a 150% growth of the advised betting bank, which really is top quality stuff. 

You can see the progress in the profit graph below, with some big movements upwards throughout the trial:

There was also an incredible 180,000/1 accumulator during our trial, which wasn’t an officially recommended bet but anyone who did place it would have been celebrating pretty wildly when it landed! 

Even at Betfair SP the results were very good, with 198 points profit made during our trial. 

The only thing to be aware of if following Russell’s tips is that with a strike rate of just 9% you do need a good deal of patience to withstand the losing runs that will happen along the way, but those who do have been richly rewarded. 

All in all then there isn’t much else to say other than this is definitely a PASSED rating and there is no doubt Russell Blair is one of the best in the business. He joins a very elite band of tipsters who have made 2,000 points profit overall, putting Russell firmly in the pantheon of all-time great tipsters.  

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are normally sent out the evening before racing usually between 6 and 7pm UK time. With an average of 3 bets per day there is a little bit of work involved in following the service, but not too much by any means. 

Availability of prices:   We conducted a study over a week of recording the prices after tips were sent out and the odds held up pretty well for the first half an hour to an hour, with most advised prices being available. However, beyond that prices do tend to get pushed in quite considerably and certainly by the next morning the value will normally be gone. Even at Betfair SP though results held up well, with just under 200 points profit being made during our trial. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was just 9%, so this is clearly a service for the patient gambler as there will be some losing streaks and drawdowns along the way. You need to be prepared for that and not to just give up the first time Russell hits a few losers. Staying patient and disciplined is key and then you can enjoy the winners when they come and the long-term profits he has consistently made. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is recommended for following the service which we think is reasonable given the staking and strike rate. However, to be on the safe side we think a 250-300 point bank could be a better option as there was an extended drawdown in 2017 when most of a 200 point would have been lost. At 300 points it just gives you that much more room for manoeuvre.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are very reasonable considering the results achieved, with a free trial for 14 days then £39.99 per month, £99.99 per quarter or £359.99 per year. Certainly we have seen services with results like these charging at least double or even treble these subscription fees. 

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

There aren’t many tipsters who are even still going three years after we review them, let alone who go on to amass yet more profits and then absolutely smash it during a follow-up review.

Russell Blair Racing has done exactly that however, making over 300 points profit at advised prices during our second trial of his service, at an exceptional ROI of 27% in one of the most successful trials we ever have run here at HBR in over four years of operating this website.

You do need patience if following the service as there will be drawdowns along the way, but if you are prepared for that and set aside an appropriate betting bank then really there aren’t many better tipping services out there, full stop.

If you aren’t already a member then quite simply you should seriously consider adding this to your portfolio and start enjoying the fantastic profits long-term members have been enjoying for a long time now.

Russell Blair Racing – Results Update

1st August 2019

Horse racing tipster Russell Blair Racing has been on scintillating form over the past month, with a stunning 108 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

That means he is now an amazing 320 points up at advised prices for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here. 

At Betfair SP he has also been doing excellently, with 107 points profit made since our last update and 238 points profit made for our trial overall. It’s great to see a tipster that’s profitable both at advised prices and BSP. 

The big story of the month came on the weekend of 20th July, when Russell landed an incredible run that included a nice 14/1 winner on the Friday followed by winners at 33/1, 11/1, 33/1 and 12/1 on the Saturday. 

That four-timer had combined odds of 180,000-1, a quite incredible combo! 

Now he didn’t advise putting an acca on, but even at singles you would have made 170 points profit on the day at advised prices and 172 points profit at BSP, which is quite outstanding. 

Suffice to say this service is heading for a passed rating, with flying colours! 

The only thing to note is that Russell tips at high odds, so you will need a decent-sized betting bank and a degree of patience if following the service as there will be some losing runs along the way. 

If you have those things though, this looks like one of the very best tipsters we have ever come across.

And the great news is you can get a 14 day free trial of Russell Blair Racing here.

Russell Blair Racing – Results Update

25th June 2019

We said last time that at the odds tipped at it would only take a couple of winners to turn things around for Russell Blair Racing and guess what happened…he only went and landed a load of big-priced winners!

Yes it’s been a rich time to be involved with the service as Russell has racked up 212 points profit at advised prices since our last update.

That means he is now 193 points up at advised prices for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here. 

It’s been quite a turn around at BSP as well. Last time he was 96 points down at Betfair SP but with 227 points profit made since our last update Russell is now 131 points up at BSP for our trial overall.

So we are starting to see now why this is one of the most highly-regarded tipsters out there – really impressive stuff.

And the good news is they are currently doing a special offer of a 30 day FREE trial – but the offer ends on 30th June so don’t miss out.

Russell Blair Racing – Results Update

14th May 2019

Unfortunately it’s been a little bit of a tricky time for legendary tipster Russell Blair Racing, with 16 points lost at advised prices since our last update.

That means he is now 19 points down at advised prices for our re-review overall.

You can view full results here. 

The BSP results have had even more of a rough time, with 48 points lost since our last update and 96 points lost overall. Although as stated last time that does include a 34 point difference on Petite Jack who was a winner with the bookies but lost on Betfair. 

Anyway, at the odds tipped at it would only take a few winners to really turn the results around so let’s hope he can land a few soon.

 

 

 

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

Russell Blair Racing – Results Update

2nd April 2019

It’s been a quiet start to our re-review of Russell Blair Racing, with a loss of 3 points so far at advised prices. 

You can view full results here. 

The picture is a bit more complicated at Betfair SP as one of the selections – Petite Jack at Lingfield on 23rd Feb – was first past the post so was a winner with the bookies, but was subsequently penalised into second, so was a loser on Betfair.

So the BSP results so far don’t look good with a loss of 48 points for our re-review, but that’s including a 34 point difference on Petite Jack. Without that the BSP results would only be 14 points down. 

Anyway, that’s just one of those things you can’t really legislate for but is a reason why sometimes backing with the bookies is a preferable option.

Russell Blair Racing – Re-Review

14th February 2019

About three years ago we reviewed prominent horse racing tipster Russell Blair and he performed excellently during our trial, making 214 points profit to advised prices.

It is quite unusual for a tipster to still be going three years after our original review, let alone to continue producing consistent profit. 

Russell has defied the odds and continued to do so however and has established one of the most formidable records in the tipping world as a result, with over 1600 points profit made since 2015.

That would be over £16,000 profit to just £10 stakes and has been achieved with a return on investment of over 30%, which is almost unheard of over such a long period of time. 

So with such a strong record having been established, we thought it was time we took another at Russell’s tips and updated our original findings.  Of particular interest will be how obtainable prices are and how the Betfair SP results stack up against the advised prices. 

Hopefully he can repeat the performance of our original review and prices will be obtainable, because if so then this would deserve a place right towards the top of our tipster rankings. 

With UK racing back on after the brief hiatus for equine flu and Cheltenham just around the corner it is a good time to jump back on board.

So we will run our re-review here and will update results periodically during the trial. 

In the meantime you can check out Russell Blair Racing for yourself here.

Our three month trial of Russell Blair Racing has now been completed and here are the final results:

 

Profit/loss:   +214 points
Strike Rate:   16%
Bank Growth:   143%
Cost:  £24.95/month, £59.95/quarter or £199.95/year 
ROI:  50%

Russell Blair Racing – Full Review

 

Coming into our trial, horse racing tipster Russel Blair had made over 650 points profit in just ten months of tipping, a quite amazing total in such a short space of time.

So we were very interested to commence a trial of his tips.

Often when tipsters come under the spotlight of a live trial however, things take a turn for the worst and they cannot match previous results.

Gladly this has not been the case with Russell Blair Racing who has had a cracking trial, racking up 214 points profit at advised prices and 121 points profit at Betfair SP.

This has come at a return on investment of 50%, which is exceptionally high and is a remarkable achievement over a three month period.

As you can see from the graph below, profits were built steadily over the trial:

Russell Blair Racing Profit Graph

Russell takes a nice straightforward approach to tipping and he gives thorough analysis to accompany his tips, which is always to good to see.

The only slight cause of concern is the difference between the results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP, with the latter being almost 100 points lower than the former over the trial.

It became clear to us over the trial that you need to place your bets as soon as possible after they are sent out and to have a good number of bookie accounts to get the most out of the service.

As long as these criteria are not a problem for you, then Russell Blair Racing comes highly recommended and would be a very worthy addition to your betting portfolio.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are normally sent out in the early evening the day before racing (17.30 – 18.30 UK time) and you need to act fast to take advantage of the early prices. There are on average 3 tips per day, including often an each-way trixie, so there is a little bit of work to do but it is certainly not too bad. 

Availability of prices: As mentioned above, the huge difference between results at advised prices and Betfair SP is an indication of the need to get your bets on asap after tips are sent out – if possible within an hour. Waiting until the next day to get your bets will mean missing a lot of the value. And you will need a good range of bookie accounts too. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 16%, which means a degree of patience will be needed to follow the service and there is the possibility of some drawdowns along the way.

Advised Betting Bank: A 100 point betting bank is advised by Russell, but we used a 150 point bank to be on the safe side given the strike rate is a little lower than some other horse racing services we follow. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs for a service of this quality are very reasonable at £24.95/month, £59.95/quarter or £199.95/year

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

It’s been a cracking trial for Russell Blair Racing, a horse racing tipster who began his career on Twitter but now has his own website and provides tips by e-mail. 

Profits of 214 points at advised prices at a return of investment of 50% is excellent stuff and one of the best trials we have had in quite a while here at Honest Betting Reviews.

The only thing to be aware of is that prices often decrease substantially between the time they are sent out in the evening before racing and the off, so you need to get bets on as soon as possible and to have a range of bookie accounts if you want to get close to matching the published results.

The website service has only been going for around a year, so doesn’t have quite the long-term established record of some of the other services we have approved.

However,  if Russell can continue the form he has shown so far, he may well go on to establish himself as one of the very best and most highly regarded horse racing tipsters in the business.

We will watch his results closely and update things periodically with how he is getting on.

In the meantime we are happy to give Russell Blair Racing an approved rating and would definitely recommend it as part of your betting portfolio.

Russell Blair Racing – Results Update

2nd May 2016

There has been a small downturn for Russell Blair Racing, with 5 points dropped since our last update.

However, things have still been going excellently overall during the trial, with 149 points of profit made so far at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

A huge gap has opened up however between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP, with the latter now being 52 points up, nearly 100 points less than the advised prices.

So it appears this service may not be practical to follow at Betfair SP, or at least results will be significantly lower.

Having monitored prices closely, it now seems clear that you need to get bets on within an hour of tips being sent out to really get the value with Russell Blair. 

 

 

 

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

Russell Blair Racing – Results Update

18th April 2016

Things have continued in positive fashion for Russell Blair Racing, with a further 41 points profit added at advised prices and 38 points profit at Betfair SP.

That means Russell is now 154 points in profit for the trial at advised prices and 86 points in profit at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

Very impressive stuff so far. 

The only thing to note in the results is that we didn’t include the results for the Dubai World Cup, as those were sent out on 8th February, before we had joined the service and when Russell sent out a reminder the day before the races, he said not to back the tips at the current prices.

But if you had done, we understand you would have lost about 10 points.

As we said last time, there is a big difference between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP, so you really need to get on the selections as quickly as possible after bets are sent out.

As long as you can do that, then this is looking like a very promising service.

 

 

 

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

Russell Blair Racing – Results Update

17th March 2016

It has been an excellent start to our trial of Russell Blair Racing, a horse racing tipster who has built quite a following for himself on Twitter.

So far Russell is 113 points in profit at advised prices and 48 points in profit at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

There is quite a big difference between the advised prices and Betair SP results so far which is a slight cause for concern, so we will keep a close eye on the availability of prices and see how much pressure they come under.

Russell often tips three tips per day and then combines them in a trixie bet, which has worked well so far as he has managed to hit two out of three legs of the trixie on numerous occasions.

If he manages to hit all three legs of the trixie, then we could really be talking a big win because these are often in the hundreds – or even thousands – to one.

Anyway, a nice positive start for Russell Blair Racing and we will keep you posted on how things go for the remainder of the trial.

Russell Blair Racing – New Review

8th February 2016

Today we are commencing a trial of a horse racing tipster who has built up quite a reputation in a relatively short space of time. 

The tipster in question is called Russell Blair (no relation of Tony as far as I am aware) and he has amassed over 650 points profit since starting tipping in April 2015. 

That equates to 65 points profit per month, or £650 per month to just £10 stakes.

Only one month out of 10 so far has been a losing one, and even then that was only a 7 point loss where as some of his winning months have been well over and 50 points profit and one even over 100.

Before that he tipped on Twitter and apparently had a very successful record on there and won three tipping competitions.

So it is with much anticipation that we commence this trial of Russell’s tips and are very much hoping he can continue his past record.

The tips are available for a very reasonable £14.95 per month, £39.95 per quarter or £149.95 per year.

So let’s strap ourselves in and see how things go.

Back soon with results updates.

quentin franks racing

Quentin Franks Racing – Four Year Update

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

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

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

Well the good news is yes, he certainly has!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

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

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

 

 

 

 

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

Quentin Franks Racing – Two Year Update

7th May 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Quentin Franks Racing Profit Graph

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

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

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

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

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

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

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED 

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

It’s a decision we doubt you will regret.

Quentin Franks Racing – One Year Update

28th March 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is the profit graph for the last nine months:

Quentin Franks Racing Profit Graph

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

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

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

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

Conclusion

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

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

Highly recommended.

Rating: 5 stars

Quentin Franks Racing Final Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

Quentin Franks Racing Final Profit Graph

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

 

Service Breakdown

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL  

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

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

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

Horse Network Tipster – Full Review

 

The Horse Network Tipster is a service provided by the Betting Gods tipster network. It is a high volume service, providing around 10 tips per day on average for UK and Irish racing.

Coming into our trial the results looked very impressive, with over £4,200 profit made to £10 stakes over the previous year. 

Quite often we see strong results published for the period before our trial starts, only for things to fall flat on their face when our live trial gets underway. You can call that bad luck, sod’s law, or the reviewer’s curse, but either way it happens quite a lot unfortunately.

This time however we are pleased to say the opposite happened – the Horse Network Tipster performed excellently during our trial, racking up a very healthy 215 points profit at advised prices. 

Here is the profit graph for the trial:

As you can see, pretty steady growth throughout the trial which we like to see.

That was achieved over a huge sample of over 900 bets, which is a good sign.  

The return on investment during our trial was a commendable 18%, whilst the strike rate was 15%, meaning some patience is required if following the service. 

At Betfair SP they also made a very good profit of 129 points, so all in all there is a lot to like about the service. 

With the recommended betting bank more than doubling during the trial and very solid profits each month we are more than happy to award the Horse Network Tipster a PASSED rating.  

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The tips are normally sent out the evening before racing at around 8-9pm UK time. With an average of 10 bets per day there is quite a bit of work involved in following the service and you should allow at least half an hour each day for placing the bets (unless you are using Betfair SP which will obviously be a lot quicker). 

Availability of prices: You do need to try and take the prices the evening the tips are sent out as they tend to drop quite a bit by race time the next day.   

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 15%, so this is clearly a service for the patient gambler as there will be some losing streaks and drawdowns along the way, but during our trial it was certainly worth it. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is recommended for following the service which we think is about right given the staking and strike rate. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are pretty reasonable at £1.99 for the first 15 days then £27 per month.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

The Horse Network Tipster is a high-volume service for betting on UK and Irish racing and it achieved excellent results during our three month trial with 215 points profit at advised prices or 129 points profit at Betfair SP.

So we have no hesitation in awarding it a PASSED rating and let’s hope they can keep those kind of results up over the long run.

Horse Network Tipster – Results Update

28th June 2019

The Horse Network Tipster continues to deliver the goods with some excellent results achieved over the last month. They have delivered another 63 points profit at advised prices since our last update.

That puts them 117 points up at advised prices for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Encouragingly the Betfair SP results have held up very well so far, with another 33 points profit made since our last update and 116 points profit made for our trial overall.

So there has only been one point difference so far between the BSP results and advised price results and that’s over the course of more than 450 bets, which is a substantial sample size. 

If this continues then it looks like Betting Gods will have uncovered not just another top class tipster but one who is profitable at BSP as well.

Horse Network Tipster – Results Update

31st May 2019

Our trial of the Horse Network Tipster has got off to a flying start, with a profit of 54 points made at advised price so far after one month.

You can view full results here.

The Betfair SP results have been something of a revelation too, with a stunning profit of 83 points made, significantly outpacing the results at advised prices thus far.

That is very unusual so we will have to keep an eye on whether it continues for the remainder of the trial but it would be quite a coup if it does. 

So far so good then for the Horse Network Tipster.

Horse Network Tipster

1st May 2019

Today we are starting a new trial of a very exciting-looking tipster called the Horse Network Tipster. 

This is a tipster who has been proofing to the Betting Gods for a full year and in that time have amassed some very decent results indeed.

To £10 per point they have made over £4,200 profit over the last year, which works out at a very nice £329 per month profit on average. 

Using a 200-point bank that would be over 200% bank growth, which is excellent stuff. 

It is a service that targets high-priced winners rather than strong favourites and has landed some nice touches at 22/1, 18/1, 16/1 and many more such prices.

It’s good to see a service that’s been proofed for a full year as that gives a bit more confidence that it’s the real deal rather than just someone who’s had a lucky run.

As ever though it remains to be seen how the service performs under the spotlight of a live trial here on the site so let’s wait to see how things go before getting carried away.

So we’ll commence a trial today and hopefully have some positive news to report here soon.

In the meantime there are some excellent early bird offers if you are thinking of joining up, with 3 months access being offered for just £29 and 6 months access for just £49. 

You can check the offers and the service out for yourself here.
