The Racing King Full Review

 

We seem to have a bit of a theme at the moment – neutral reviews. 

We have another one here with the Racing King (formerly the Each Way King). This one is at least a bit more straightforward than the previous two which fell slightly between two stools and were difficult to grade. 

But this has ended up just 3 points down after three months so there seems no other fair verdict than a neutral rating.

Things got off to a promising start as they went over 30 points up early on, but sadly those early gains were given away in a steady trend downwards, as you can see below:

Each Way King Profit Graph

It’s a nice easy service to follow with just two bets per day and betting each way means you have a higher strike rate so the losing runs are shorter.

For the time being though, this is one to watch and to see if results pick up over the longer term.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: There are just 2 bets per day on average and workload is minimal with this service – should only take a few minutes each day to place the bets.

Availability of prices: There was no issue with the availability of prices, although there was a small difference between the advised prices and Betfair SP (14 points over the course of the trial) so it may be best to take early prices to make the most of the service. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 28%, which is just very slightly below the long-term average of 29.5%. 

Advised Betting Bank: No bank was advised when we signed up so we used a 100 point bank, which was more than comfortable for the trial.   

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £5 first 14 days then £25/month or £60/quarter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL  

It has been one of those slightly quiet trials for the Racing King where not a great deal has happened to be honest.

Fortunes have fluctuated a little bit during the trial but in the end they finished 3 points down, so very close to breaking even.

It’s a nice easy service to follow and betting each way gives you shorter losing runs, which is always appreciated.

So after just about breaking even, the only reasonable verdict seems to be a neutral rating. We will keep an eye on the Racing King for a while and see where the service ends up going.

*Please note this service was previously called the Each Way King and was part of the Betting Gods network.

Each Way King – Results Update

24th January 2016

It’s been a case of treading water really for the Each Way King since our last update, with just one point lost at advised prices and 4 points lost at Betfair SP.

That means for the trial overall they are 1 point up at advised prices and 12 points down at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

With just a couple of weeks left in the trial it will be interesting to see if they can push on and finish in profit.

Back with our final review soon.

Each Way King – Results Update

28th December 2015

There has been something of a reversal for the Each Way King since our last update just over a month ago.

They have dropped 25 points at advised prices and 26 points at Betfair SP over the last month.

That means they are just 2 points in profit at advised prices and 8 points down at Betfair SP for the trial as a whole.

You can view full results here.

Hopefully there will be an upturn for them as we head into the New Year. Back soon with more updates.

Each Way King – Results Update

21st November 2015

It has been a good start to our trial of Each Way King, who are 27 points up at advised prices and 18 points up at Betfair SP after three weeks of results.

You can view full results here.

This is a fairly easy service to follow, with just a couple of bets per day. 

We are noting a bit of a gap opening up already between advised prices and Betfair SP though, so this will be something to keep an eye on.

Anyway, a good start to the trial and let’s hope they continue in the same vein.

Each Way King – New Review

2nd November 2015

It would be fair to say that most tipsters like to bet “on the nose” as it were. It is about picking winners they would say. To be fair there is a certain attraction about the simplicity of that approach.

However, on the other side you have those who would argue that backing each-way allows you to profit when your horses run well but don’t quite get the job done, whether it be due to bad luck, ill-suiting conditions or just not quite being good enough on the day.

Another advantage to backing each-way is that it enables you to build a bank more steadily, with a higher strike rate and shorter losing runs.

Anyway, whichever approach you prefer, sitting squarely on the latter side of the argument is a new service we are trialing, Each Way King from the Betting Gods stable. 

Well so far the each-way style certainly seems to be working for them, with over 170 points profit accumulated since the service started in June.

That has been achieved with a 30% strike rate and 35% return on investment, which is excellent going.

Staking is nice and simple at between 0.5 and 1 points each way on each selection, so no crazy staking system to inflate results.

There are generally around 2 bets per day, so it should be fairly manageable in terms of workload. 

We will run our normal three month trial and see if this can deliver us some royal profits. 

In the meantime, you can check out Each Way King here.

All Weather Profits – Full Review

 

Well after three months and 278 bets our trial of All Weather Profits has come to an end. Overall it has managed a profit of 26 points to 2 point level stakes.

The service is a simple horse racing tipster that bets only on the all-weather (as you may have guessed from the name). 

Bets are sent out each morning and are simply backed at Betfair SP.

The trial got off to a tough start, dipping down to -56 points at one stage but recovered nicely to finish in profit, as you can see from the graph below:

All Weather Profits Graph

This is a difficult one to give a verdict on as it has made a profit over the trial and in some ways we were close to giving this a passed rating. 

However, on balance we feel that a bank growth of 18% over three months isn’t quite enough to merit an approved rating. 

To one point level stakes the profit would be 13 points, which is a bit below what would be required to give a resounding thumbs up. 

Remember we have services like Master Racing Tipster and Racing Gold that have achieved well over 100% bank growth over their respective trials.

Ultimately the question we ask when considering a recommending rating is “would you recommend this to a friend?” 

Certainly we wouldn’t warn a friend off this but we wouldn’t go rushing to them imploring them to sign up either.

You may well want to give this a go and add it to your portfolio, but for us in the end it is a neutral rating, just below a pass. 

There is a lot to like about the service – all tips are simply backed at Betfair SP, which makes it easy to follow and you know you can at least match the published results, if not beat them. Plus the subscription costs are low at under £15 per month, with the first month for just £3.79. 

So perhaps worth giving a go, bearing in mind the long term results of over 500 points profit in two years of tipping.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The bets are sent out by e-mail each morning and with an average of 3 tips per day, the workload is very manageable. Nice and simple to follow.

Availability of prices: With all selections advised at Betfair SP, you are guaranteed at least matching the advised prices and if you wanted to shop around, no doubt you could do a little better. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 19%, so a little bit of patience will be required with this service.

Advised Betting Bank: The advised bank was 150 points, which was plenty and never in threat during the trial, with the low point being 56 points down.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are very reasonable at just £3.79 for first month then £14.95/month, £29.95/quarter or £119.95 for lifetime.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

It’s been a solid performance by All Weather Profits over the course of our trial and any service that finishes in profit after 3 months should be commended.

We were close to giving this a recommended rating, but just felt in the end that 18% growth of the bank over three months wasn’t quite enough.

However, we are mindful that the previous results published on the Tipster Street show over 500 points profit, so it is one we will keep an eye on and see how things progress going forward.

All Weather Profits – Results Update

26th December 2015

It’s been a good turnaround for All Weather Profits, who have banked 83 points profit since our last update just over a month ago.

That is largely down to an impressive 33/1 winner at Kempton on 25th November, which at their standard 2 point stakes netted a whopping 73 points profit.

They now stand at +44 points for the trial overall, which is good stuff.

You can view full results here.

As we mentioned previously, they use 2 point staking for all their selections, so at 1 point level stakes this would be 22 points up so far.

Anyway, good to see the positive progress being made and let’s hope it continues. We will be back soon with more updates.

All Weather Profits – Results Update

20th November 2015

It has been a tough start to our trial of All Weather Profits, who are 39 points down after a month of results. 

You can view full results here.

All bets are 2 point win bets, which is a bit strange because it essentially just means you are doubling everything – whether good or bad. In this case it has been bad, as they would be just 19 points down to 1 point level stakes.

Anyway, all results are recorded to Betfair SP which makes following the service easy and we know we can match the published results. 

The all-weather season is only just getting going so hopefully we will see their results pick up in the coming weeks as the form becomes a bit more established.

Check back here for updates on how things go.

All Weather Profits – New Review

22nd October 2015

As the evenings start to close in and the air turns rather chilly, thoughts in the flat horse racing world turn to the fibresand and polytrack.

What are we talking about you may ask? All weather racing of course.

Yes that gift from our American cousins – racing on dirt – comes in very handy when the weather turns foul and many national hunt meetings are cancelled or run on swamp-like ground.

All weather racing is steadily growing in popularity in the UK and Ireland, with more race meetings, new courses like Chelmsford opening – or at least reopening – greater prize funds and higher quality of horses running.

Certainly with the likes of Godolphin lavishing vast sums of money on their all-weather operation, it appears that racing on dirt is here to stay and will just grow and grow. At least it allows us flat racing fans to continue our betting habit throughout the Winter anyway.

So with the all-weather season about to get into full swing, it is with much relish that we start a trial of an all-weather specialist horse racing tipster.

All Weather Profits

Enter stage right All Weather Profits, a service from the Tipster Street stables with an impressive record of nearly 500 points profit since the service started in January 2014, which works out at 23 points per month. 

That has been earned with an impressive 17% return on investment and a solid strike rate of 22%. 

There are approximately two bets per day, so it should be reasonably straightforward to follow.

Subscription costs are very reasonable at £3.79 for the first month then £14.95 per month or £29.95 per quarter.

We will run our usual three month trial for this one which will give us a nice chunk of the all-weather season to enjoy.

Check back here for updates.

In the meantime you can can view All Weather Profits here.

Daily Nap Full Review

 

Oh dear! Poor old Daily Nap. One minute you are moving along steadily providing your daily tips and then suddenly – whoosh! You are gone.

Sadly the Daily Nap is no longer available on the Betting Gods website and has been pulled from service, so making this review somewhat redundant. The tips are still available to current subscribers but not to new ones.

It seems like it really is law of the jungle out there in tipping – you either need to hit the big time quickly or you are squashed.

We feel a bit sorry for this one, it wasn’t like they were doing terribly, just a 15 point loss so far. 

But there doesn’t seem to be much doing an in-depth review here other than to say there were things to like about this service, including all the results being recorded at Betfair SP and with just one tip per day, it was super-easy to follow.

Things started off promisingly but we have sadly finished the trial in deficit, with 14 losers from the last 15 bets rather putting the kibosh on things. 

Oh well, there you are! I suppose if things improve and this service is re-offered to the public we may update this review. Otherwise it is adios to the Daily Nap – we are off for a siesta…

26th December 2015

A slight decline for the Daily Nap since our last update just over a month ago. They have lost just over 3 points in that time to sit 5.67 points down overall.

You can view full results here.

Whilst we would normally be concluding the trial at this point after 3 months, we are yet to hit the minimum 100 bet mark so will run the trial for another month.

So back in a month’s time with our final thoughts on the Daily Nap.

Daily Nap – Results Update

19th November 2015

Still fairly quiet times for the Daily Nap since our last update three weeks ago – so quiet in fact that maybe they have been having a nap themselves!

No we joke of course, they have still been supplying tips everyday but it has been quiet in terms of the results with just 3 points gained since our last update.

That leaves them 2 points down overall after two months of the trial.

You can view full results here.

So no disaster but more work to be done to get things moving into the black.

Back soon with further updates.

Daily Nap – Results Update

Things have remained fairly quiet for the Daily Nap, with just over one point lost since our last update three weeks ago.

That means in total they are 5 points down in total.

Let’s see if they can pick up the pace a bit during the remainder of the trial – otherwise we may have to go off for a little nap ourselves…

Daily Nap – Results Update

7th October 2015

Now despite what you may be thinking, the Daily Nap isn’t something devoted to describing those late-afternoon snoozes we all think about taking at work when we’ve had a long day – it is in fact a horse racing tipster who provides one selection per day – their “nap.”

The service started tipping in March and has managed a very good strike rate of 44% since then.

We started our trial on 20th September, so how have things been going?

Well, overall they are slightly down, standing at -3.69 points so far.

You can view full results here.

But what is interesting is that it has been something of a mini-roller coaster so far. They started with 7 losers in a row, which was obviously a tough start. 

Then they hit 5 winners in a row – great stuff! 

That was followed by four losers, until we had a winner yesterday. Hopefully that’s the start of another winning run.

The nice thing about this service is that all selections are simply backed at Betfair SP and with only one bet day, it is super-easy to follow.

We’ll return soon with more updates on whether the roller coaster ride continues!

 

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

Daily Nap – New Review

20th September 2015

There is something quite appealing about tipsters that provide just one tip per day.

For starters, it means minimal time on the part of the punter to get the bets on. 

Secondly, it makes you feel like the one tip is the very strongest bet of the day and must have a lot going for it. 

On the other hand, one could argue that there shouldn’t be a pre-set number of tips, whether it be one, two, or any other number and the tipster should just tip as many horses as they believe will win on a given day.

The results of the Daily Nap tipping service so far suggest the former argument wins out over the latter, as they have amassed a very impressive 48 points profit to one point level stakes at a return on investment (ROI) of 26.17% in 4 months.

That is at a high strike rate as well at 44%, which is always good to see. Even more encouraging is that those results are to Betfair SP, so no fantasy prices that are unobtainable. 

As usual, we will conduct a three month trial of this service and see if it can live up to its previous results under test conditions.

We will provide regular updates on its progress during the trial, but in the meantime you can check out the Daily Nap here.

Racing Bulletin – New Review

Oh dear – it looks like this service has been discontinued. We haven’t received any tips since they went live and have had no response to our e-mails to them.

Plus now the website appears to have been taken down! 

Oh well, sometimes these things happen – people’s personal circumstances can change.

Perhaps if they ever decide to recommence in future, we can run a trial then.

 

 

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

 

We are starting a trial today of a horse racing service called Racing Bulletin.

This is a service that provides quite a detailed explanation on its website of how selections are arrived at.

Things start off with their speed ratings and some markers to potentially exclude horses based on being poorly handicapped, unproven on the ground or at today’s distance.

Then from this they form a shortlist based on factors such as the going, form and the time of the year.

Finally from this shortlist they will perform their final analysis and select their tips. 

The tips focus on turf races but there is also an AW Handicap service adding some selections to the mix, but these don’t come with the same detailed analysis as described above.

Nice to see a tipster that provides detailed explanation for how their choose their bets, although as ever the proof will be in the pudding as they say.

The service is available for a 14 day trial at a cost of £1 but then costs are rather steep to say the least at £79.95 per month.

There are no long term results published on the website so we have to say we are surprised by the level of subscription fees charged. We normally only expect such fees charged for tipsters that have a long track record of proven success.

Anyway, we will see how this one gets on as we are intrigued by the approach. 

We will run our normal three month trial and provide regular updates on how this one gets on.

Hugh Taylor Tips Full Review

 

This is quite a difficult one for us to give a final verdict on as although Hugh rallied late on to finish +9 points in profit by the end at advised prices, he finished -31 points down at the best prices available and -35 points down at Betfair SP.

Here is his progress during the trial in graph format:

Hugh Taylor Tips Profit Graph

As you can see, quite a good recovery after an uncharacteristic poor run early on in the trial. 

We felt in the end a neutral rating was a fair verdict – clearly Hugh is a great tipster with an almost unparalleled long-term record. But there is a problem – it is damn hard to make a profit out of his tips!

In fact, it made us wonder whether it is possible to make a profit at all from his tips.

Can You Make A Profit Following Hugh Taylor’s Tips?

Based on the results of our trial, we think the answer to that question is probably “no.” 

Yes, it is true that we followed him at a particularly bad time, with him only making 9 points profit in 3 months, when you could normally expect him to make 50-70 points profit in that time based on his past results. 

Even if he had made an additional 40 points profit over the course of the trial, that would only just have brought us into profit at the best prices available and Betfair SP – and that is presuming we could have got close to his advised prices, which clearly is virtually impossible.

We expect over the long-term you would probably just about break even or maybe eek out a slight profit if you were very on the ball and took the prices the very minute his tips are sent out.

But then you would face the age-old problem of bookies potentially limiting you as they are well aware of Hugh’s tips, with Mr Taylor being one of the best known of all tipsters in the Sport of Kings.

 

Is it best to just back the tips at Betfair SP?

One of the things we monitored closely during the trial was the difference between the best prices available and the Betfair SP. Here are how things averaged out over the course of the trial:

Average advised price: 10.41

Average price obtained: 7.35

Average Betfair SP: 8.45

Somewhat perversely, although the Betfair SP average ended up higher than the best price available after the tips are sent out, Betfair SP actually finished with a worse total over the course of the trial.

This is probably because those horses that really aren’t fancied by the market can drift out quite a lot during the day to a high Betfair SP and these ones rarely go on to win.

Those that are fancied seem to often run well.

It seems you are best off taking the early prices, particularly as you can use Best Odds Guaranteed bookmakers to squeeze out some additional value.

 

Are there any profitable angles to his tips?

Well they most obvious angle would be to back the tips as soon as they are released and then lay them later when the price has reduced to lock in a guaranteed profit. 

You might run the risk of account limits with the bookies if you did that, but it would be an option if you are quick on the draw.

Other than that, the only we could think of is only backing his tips when they are below around 5/1, as then the prices don’t tend to contract so much. Although that wouldn’t yield many bets per week so would be a limited strategy.

So unless you happen to know Hugh and could convince him to give you the tips a few minutes before they are sent out, we think the chances of making a profit from his tips are quite limited.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL 

Hugh Taylor is undoubtedly one of the best tipsters around with a superb record over the last six years of over 1900 points profit at a return on investment of over 29%. 

Sadly though it doesn’t seem profitable to follow his tips, unless you are incredibly fast at getting your bets on as soon as his tips are sent out.

However, even if you did that we expect the bookies would catch on pretty quick and you could have your accounts limited as you can be sure the bookies are aware of Hugh’s tips.

So unless Hugh considers a more selective service – perhaps paid and limited to a certain number of members – then it is probably one to leave alone unfortunately.

Hugh Taylor Tips – Results Update

3rd November 2015

Oh dear! More pain for the followers of the normally magnificent Hugh Taylor, he of At the Races fame. 

40 points down so far, perhaps Hugh’s worst run ever! Sod’s law I think they call it.

You can view full results here. 

Anyway, how have the comparisons gone in terms of advised prices, available prices and Betfair SP?

Well, in terms of results, it’s as follows:-

Advised Prices: -39.5 points

Available Prices: -44.9 points

Betfair SP: -47.88 points

So Betfair SP faring the worst so far. But then when we have a look at the average prices of all the selections, including winners and losers, we get a slightly different picture:

Average advised price: 10.65

Average price obtained: 7.73

Average Betfair SP: 9.12

So, that then begs the question – is it the case that the selections that are continually backed in all day and go off a lower BSP than the price available after the tips are given out go on to run well?

Do we get some sort of glimpse into the future, a bit like a poor man’s Biff from Back to the Future II???

Probably not, but it opens up another area of investigation anyway, so we will now be including the horses’ finishing positions to try and get a better sense of things.

In the meantime, let’s hope Hugh picks up his game and gets back to his usual mesmerising form.

Hugh Taylor Tips – Results Update

30th September 2015

We seem to have hit Hugh Taylor at a bad time, with all losers so far since we started our trial. Sods law I think they call it!

So that’s 22 points down so far, although he has had a couple of close shaves including one that was beaten just a nose, so things could be quite a bit better if that had come in.

You can view full results here. 

One of the main reasons for doing the review wasn’t just to collect the results however – Hugh’s record over a long period has been outstanding and it is not really open to question whether he is a good tipster – but rather to establish how obtainable prices are and whether you can make a profit following his tips.

To try and answer that question we have been recording the advised prices, the prices we have been able to obtain after the tips are posted and the Betfair SPs.

So what have our findings been so far?

Firstly we would say that the prices are extremely difficult to obtain. The tips aren’t available by e-mail so you have to go to the site to see the tips. They aren’t given out at the same time every day so you have to be quite watchful.

Then when tips are given out, the prices crash immediately. Within a minute or two of the tips being given out the prices have been smashed in.

What is interesting however is that the Betfair SPs have generally been beating the prices we have been able to obtain, by quite a margin.

So far, the averages of the tips have been:

Average advised price: 10.26

Average price obtained: 7.49

Average Betfair SP: 9.18

So as you can see, quite a difference between the prices obtained and Betfair SPs.

Of the 21 bets advised so far, 17 have had a higher Betfair SP than price we have been able to obtain, where as only 4 have been the other way round. 

It will be interesting to see if this trend continues for the rest of the trial. It will also be interesting to see if there is different pattern with the winners – lets hope we see a few soon!

We will be back with more updates soon.

Hugh Taylor Tips – New Review

18th September 2015

Today we are commencing a review of the very well-known tipster Hugh Taylor from At the Races.

Along with Pricewise at the Racing Post, Hugh is one of the most popular tipsters in the whole of horse racing and when you look at his record, it is not surprising.

Since he began tipping on the At the Races website in 2009, Hugh has made a staggering 1,897 points profit at a return on investment of 29%. 

That equates to 283 points profit per year. 

Amazing stuff – there are few in the industry who can even come close to matching those figures.

However, as anyone who has tried to follow Hugh’s tips will know, he has become something of a victim of his own success and is now so popular that prices will normally crash as soon as his tips are posted on the website.

The bookies run scared of the great man and you can see why – imagine hundreds, maybe thousands of people all piling on tips that are as good as his at the same time. That’s going to turn your book pretty lop-sided!

 

Can you actually make a profit following his tips?

The real question with Mr Taylor is whether you can actually make a profit following his tips. 

The great thing is that the tips are free, so if you could manage to make a profit, then with Hugh’s level of consistency you could really build up a tidy bank.

Surely with a guy who is making 283 points profit a year there is leeway to take lower prices and still make a profit?

Well the aim of our trial is to find out.

We will record results at advised prices, Betfair SP and then the best odds we are able to obtain after the tips have been posted on the website. 

Think this will be a case of fastest finger first! Anyone following the tips has to be quick off the mark we would imagine.

Anyway, this should be an interesting trial and a bit of a departure from our usual reviews.

We will return soon with our first update.

Tom Nelson Racing Full Review

 

So we have come to the end of our trial of Tom Nelson Racing and we finished with a nice additional 22 points of profit to conclude the trial at +122 points in profit and +60 points at Betfair SP.

This has been one of those very smooth trials that went into profit early on and has just steadily built during the trial, just what we like to see.

Here are the results in graph format:

Tom Nelson Graph

As you can see, a nice jump at the beginning and then just solid, steady growth.

The return on investment was a very strong 27%, which when tipping at the volume that Tom does with so many bets a day, is quite a feat.  

The strike rate for the trial was 32%, which is also very healthy and means losing runs should be relatively short when following this service.

Overall it has been an excellent trial and this is definitely a product we would recommend.

However, as you will note from the results above, there was a huge difference between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP.

In fact, the results at advised prices were more than twice as good as those at Betfair SP – well beyond what we would normally expect. For other services we have reviewed like Master Racing Tipster and Big Race Bookie Busters, we saw slightly over a 30% difference, which we felt was acceptable. But a 100% difference is a worrying amount in our opinion.

So we decided to delve into the availability of prices a little further…

 

Price Availability

When we see such a big difference between the advised prices and Betfair SP, the question that it raises for us is whether the advised prices are obtainable. 

For a service to be practical to follow, you need to be able to get close to the advised prices. If there isn’t much difference between Betfair SP and advised prices, it means that everyone can get close to advised prices and the service is practical to follow.

If there is a big difference, it can mean one of two things: firstly, it could be a Hugh Taylor or Pricewise situation where prices are absolutely hammered as soon as the tips are released and the services aren’t really practical to follow – or it can mean that prices are fairly available, but that the tipster is good at identifying value so prices are steadily getting pushed in during the day in the run up to the race.

So what was the case here?

Well to answer that question, we decided to record a sample of over 100 bets (106 to be precise), taking the best available prices one hour after the tips were sent out.

Taking prices an hour after the tips are sent should give everyone enough time to back the selections and mean we are recording a fair price and not just grabbing the best prices in a mad dash as soon as the tips are released.

You can see the full results of our study here.

In summary, the average advised price was 3.75 and the average best price available one hour after tips were sent out was 3.66 – so just a 2.4% difference. 

This was very reassuring and would lead us to the conclusion that this service is practical to follow and you just need to take the prices within an hour of tips being sent out and you should be fine.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: There are 5 bets per day on average so there is quite a bit of work to be done here. In accordance with our price analysis above, you need to back the tips with the bookies within an hour of tips being sent out to maximise the service. Simply backing at Betfair SP will mean missing a huge quantity of value. So we would say allocating 20 to 30 minutes per day to shopping around and finding the best odds is needed. 

Availability of prices: Please see the “Price Availability” analysis above. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 32%, which was very impressive and made it comfortable to follow. 

Advised Betting Bank: We are pleased to see that a 200 betting bank is advised for following this service, which is much more sensible than one or two of the other Betting Gods services such as Big Race Bookie Busters. It was never threatened during the trial and looking at historical results, should be more than sufficient to withstand the drawdowns. 

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are £1 for the first month then £29.95/per month or £69.95/quarter – which are pretty reasonable for a service that has amassed over 500 points profit in around 18 months.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED 

It has been a very impressive trial for Tom Nelson Racing and we are happy to thoroughly recommend this service.

The only caveat is that you should able to back the tips within an hour of them being sent out – tips are normally sent out between 5 and 6pm UK time. 

With over 500 points profit amassed in just over 18 months, this is one of the top tipsters we have reviewed so far and well worth adding to your portfolio.

Tom Nelson Racing – Results Update

6th November 2015

More excellence from Tom Nelson, who has added more profit to his totals since our last update a couple of weeks ago.

He has added another 28 points profit at advised prices taking him to over 100 points profit overall for our trial, which is very impressive stuff.

You can view full results here.

However, we are noticing quite a significant difference opening up between the advised prices and the Betfair SP. Whilst at advised prices Tom has made 28 points profit since out last update, at Betfair SP he has made just 5 points.

That puts him up to 62 points profit at Betfair SP, which is still very impressive, but is quite a significant difference between that the advised prices, equating to a 40% difference.

So it is something to be aware of anyway. The prices given in the e-mails do seem quite obtainable, but we will be keeping a closer eye on this for the remainder of the trial. 

In the meantime you can check out Tom Nelson Racing here.

 

 

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

Tom Nelson Racing – Results Update

22nd October 2015

Tom Nelson continues his creditable start to our trial with a further 16 points profit at advised prices and 10 points at Betfair SP.

That brings the totals to the trial so far to:

Advised prices: +76 points

Betfair SP: +57 points

You can view full results here. 

Interestingly Tom tips at a whole range of prices, everything from very short odds like 1.1 up to around the 12/1 mark. I suppose the old adage that something can be value at any price, not just long shots, applies here.

We remarked last time that the staking had gone down from 5-6 points per bet to more like 1-2 points. Well now it is somewhere in between the two! 

Not quite sure what to make of the staking, I suppose much like the prices, Tom takes quite a varied approach to his betting.

Well so far it is working. Let’s see if it continues for the remainder of the trial.

In the meantime, you can check out Tom Nelson Racing here.

Tom Nelson Racing – Results Update

29th September 2015

It’s been an excellent start to our trial of Tom Nelson Racing. After three weeks he is 60 points up at advised prices and 46 points up at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here. 

Staking is quite high however, so it is perhaps not quite as good as it sounds. At the start of the trial there were regular 5 and 6 point bets, although over the last week or so staking has been much lower with just 1-2 point bets in general.

It will be interesting to see if this is a change in staking approach or just a quiet period.

Either way though it has been a very positive start and long may it continue.

Back soon with more updates.

Tom Nelson Racing – New Review

9th September 2015

Today we are starting a new trial of horse racing tipster Tom Nelson Racing from the Betting Gods stable.

Tom has been tipping for just over a year and in that time has produced over 400 points profit – not too shabby! 

With a high strike rate of 37%, hopefully losing runs shouldn’t be too bad with this service. There are about 60-70 bets per month, so we are looking at 2-3 per day on average.

The return on investment stands at 8.39%, which isn’t as high as some of the other Betting Gods services, but it looks like Mr Nelson focuses more on a good turnover and strike rate to amass his profits. 

Anyway, we will run our normal three month trial to see how this one performs. 

In the meantime you can check out Tom Nelson Racing here. 

Elite Ratings System – Final Review

We have come to the end of our trial of Elite Ratings System and here are the final results:

 

Profit/loss:  -16.4 points 
Strike Rate:  22%
Bank Growth:  -16%
Cost:  £35.94/month or £71.88/quarter 
ROI:  -2%
Average number of tips:  5 per day
VERDICT:  NEUTRAL
Rating:

 

You can view full results here.

 

Elite Ratings System Full Review

 

Sadly after being in profit for most of our trial, things took a decided turn for the worst for Elite Ratings System towards the end and they ended up in slight deficit at the conclusion of our 3 month testing period.

That means that after over 460 bets, they have finished 16 points down at advised prices and 24 points down at Betfair SP.

You can see how things went south for them after the half way point, made a nice rebound but then fell downwards again to finish in the red:

 

Elite Ratings System Profit Graph

 

It was no disaster however, as using a 100 point bank that equates to just a 16% loss of the bank. And to be fair to them, they did hit a lot of second places in the last few weeks, so things could easily have been better.

Perhaps we just hit them at the wrong time, as Stuart who runs the service said this is the worst run they’ve been on since they started.

However, we can only judge a service on what it achieves whilst we are following it, so on that basis it has been a little disappointing to finish in a loss.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Quite a demanding service to follow as there are 5 bets per day on average. If you are pressed for time it might be best to just use Betfair to back the selections. 

Availability of prices: Pretty good, there was certainly no stampede for prices and we were able to obtain prices fairly comfortably. There wasn’t much difference between the advised price results and Betfair SP results (just 8 points difference over 464 bets), so that seems to confirm that prices are obtainable.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 22% – which is a little lower than expected and for what would be needed to make a profit from this one. 

Advised Betting Bank: A betting bank was not advised but we used a 100 point bank for the trial, which seemed adequate based on past results and proved so during the trial, as it was never close to being threatened.

Subscription costs: The costs aren’t too bad at £35.94 per month or £71.88 per quarter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL 

We had high hopes coming into the trial of Elite Ratings System as it had amassed 800 points of profit in less than 2 years according to the results on the website and there were people claiming to have nearly paid off their mortgages by following the selections.

Well perhaps they had quite a small mortgage, or were betting with large stakes, but it certainly gave you the feeling this service had great potential.

It is also the first service we have reviewed that uses software to generate selections, so was a novelty in that sense.

And after a strong start, we thought we were on to something special here.

But sadly things hit the buffers in the last third of the trial and they have continued to struggle since our trial ended.

A loss of 16 points – which equated to just 16% of the bank – is certainly no disaster though so we feel a neutral rating is justified for Elite Ratings System.

It is one to keep an eye on to see if the recent dip in form is just a blip and they return to the form of old or whether a more permanent malaise has set in. 

 

 

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

Results Update

24th October 2015

Unfortunately things have taken a real downturn for Elite Ratings System since our last update. They have dropped 26 points at advised prices and a whopping 46 points at Befair SP.

That leaves the totals so far for the trial at:

Total Profit/Loss (advised prices): +17 points

Total Profit/Loss (Betfair SP): +2 points 

You can view full results here.

So still in profit on both measures, but disappointing to have seen a good deal of the profit accumulated early on being given back.

Plenty of time left in the trial though, so nothing to panic over yet.

Back soon with more updates.

 

 

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

Results Update

3rd October 2015

It is more positive news for Elite Ratings System, with more profits added since our last update.

At advised prices they have added a further 15 points profit and at Betfair SP a further 4 points.

So that brings the totals for the trial so far to:

Total Profit/Loss (advised prices): +43 points

Total Profit/Loss (Betfair SP): +48 points 

You can view full results here.

So a bit of a narrowing between the advised prices and Betfair SP, but the latter still stays ahead.

There is a lot to like about this service and we are very impressed with the results so far. Let’s hope they can continue in the same vein.

 

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

Results Update

19th September 2015

It has been an interesting time for Elite Ratings System since our last update, with a bit of a discrepancy between the results at advised prices and Betfair SP.

However, it probably isn’t in the way you would expect – it’s actually the Betfair SP that has done better, with less than one point lost since our last update two weeks ago, compared to the advised priced that have lost 19 points.

That means overall the results are as follows:

Total Profit/Loss (advised prices): +28 points

Total Profit/Loss (Betfair SP): +44 points 

You can view full results here.

Overall we are impressed with this service so far, it looks very promising. We are only a month into our trial though so plenty of time to go.

It will be interesting to see if they can retain the strong results at Betfair SP as well, that would be a real bonus.

Back soon with more updates.

 

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

Results Update

3rd September 2015

A great start to our trial of Elite Ratings System, which in less than two weeks has racked up 47 points of profit at advised prices and 44 points of profit at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

Always good to see the advised prices and Betfair SP results being very similar, that is encouraging. Hopefully it will continue like that for the rest of the trial.

This is a high volume service, with generally 6-8 bets per pay. The bets are normally given out the night before racing or early in the morning though, so there is plenty of time to place the bets. 

So a great start – this looks very promising.

Back soon with more updates!

Elite Ratings System – New Review

21st August 2015

I got an e-mail this morning asking me if I would like to make £300 per month. I think it was a rhetorical question, but was intrigued by the possibility so decided to investigate further.

The system that promised me this useful little extra income is called Elite Ratings System and is software that claims to be able to “predict tomorrow’s winners with such accuracy that you can now fleece the bookmakers without needing to be part of an illegal race-fixing syndicate.”

Now I hadn’t actually considered becoming part of an illegal race-fixing syndicate (how do you do that by the way?) but am interested in testing the claims of this software nonetheless.

So we have signed up to trial the Elite Ratings System for 3 months and will record the results exactly as they are given out.

The results published on the website are very impressive, with over 700 points profit since the system started in January 2014 and a very steady profit graph.

The bets are mainly sent out the evening before racing, with a points system of between 1 and 3 points per selection.

There are a good number of selections each day – apart from Sunday which is their day off.

Let’s see if this one can live up to its bold sales page and deliver us nice steady profits in the next three months.

We will provide regular updates on its progress, but in the meantime you can check out Elite Ratings System here.

 

The Win Picker – Final Review

We have completed our trial of The Win Picker and here are the final results:

 

Profit/loss: -9 points
Strike Rate: 32%
Bank Growth: -9%
Cost: £20 for 100 days
ROI: -5%
Average number of tips: 2 per day
VERDICT: NEUTRAL
Rating:

 

You can view full results here.

 

The Win Picker Full Review

 

We have come to the end of our trial of The Win Picker and it has unfortunately not picked quite enough winners.

The service has finished 9 points down, which is certainly no disaster and represents just a 9% loss of the 100 point bank we used, but fails to live up to the results claimed on the website prior to the trial.

On the plus side, all selections are given at Betfair SP so there is the possibility of beating the published results if you shopped around and used best odds guaranteed bookies.

They did have quite a few seconds during the trial as well, so things could have turned out better with a bit more luck.

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

Win Picker Results Graph

Win Picker Results Graph

As you can see, it was in profit for most of the trial but then nosedived just at the end with a run of losers.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Very good, just two bets per day and all selections can simply be backed at Betfair SP.

Availability of prices: Excellent – as above, results are recorded at Betfair SP so you are guaranteed achieving the same results as those published.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was reasonably good at 32% – probably just needs to be a little higher in the long run to achieve sustained profit growth.

Advised Betting Bank: A betting bank was not advised but we used a notional 100 point bank, which was more than sufficient and with a 32% strike rate should be comfortable to cover drawdowns.

Subscription costs: Good value at £20 for 100 days.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL 

A final total of -9 points for the trial was disappointing, given the results published on the website for the period prior to the trial and that they were in profit for the most of the trial only to nosedive at the end.

However, it was certainly no disaster, and could have been better had there not been a whole host of second place finishes during the trial. 

All results are published at Betfair SP, so there is also the possibility of beating those results with a bit of work.

Given these mitigating factors, we feel a neutral rating is a fair verdict for The Win Picker. Just need to pick a few more winners and few less seconds and this could be a profitable service.

We will keep a watching brief for now. 

You can check out the Win Picker here.

Results Update

6th October 2015

It continues to be very quiet for the Win Picker. They are just trotting along at the moment and can’t seem to get into a cantor, let alone a gallop.

Since our last update they have dropped a couple of points to stand at 6 points up overall for the trial so far.

You can view full results here.

There is a lot to like about this service – very simple to follow, all bets at Betfair SP and a good strike rate. It is still in profit for the trial, so certainly nothing to complain about here. But nothing to get too excited about either so far.

We have about 3 weeks left in the trial so let’s see if they can push on and finish with a flourish.

 

 

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

Results Update

16th September 2015

Still pretty quiet times for the Win Picker, dropping just a couple of points since our last update on the 5th September.

That means they are now 8 points up overall since the start of our trial about seven weeks ago.

You can view full results here.

They have continued to be unlucky however, with a whole host of seconds lately, including one of today’s runners.

Things could be a good deal better with just a little bit of fortune, so hopefully the luck will turn and we will see an uplift in results soon.

We do consider this to be quite a promising service as it is very simple to operate and with results recorded at Betfair SP there is no chance of missing prices etc.

Back soon with further updates.

 

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

The Win Picker – Results Update

5th September 2015

The Win Picker has rather trod water since our last update a couple of weeks ago. 

They were 10 points up at the time of our last update and are still 10 points up now – well, 9.65 points up to be exact.

You can view full results here.

There is a bit of a sense that they have been unlucky, with quite a few second place finishes lately. 

Hopefully things will pick up now for the Win Picker. Further updates to follow soon. 

 

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

The Win Picker – Results Update

25th August 2015

We are just under a month into our trial of The Win Picker so time for an update on how things are going.

So far the service is 10 points up, so a steady start.

You can view full results here.

All selections are advised at Betfair SP, which means not only can you match the published results but it is super easy to follow and takes very little time to back the selections.

Prices are generally at the lower end of the spectrum at around the 4.0 mark, although some have been as low as 1.1 and some as high as 9.

So we are off to a solid start in the first month and let’s see if things continue in the same vein for the remainder of the trial.

In the meantime you can check out The Win Picker here.

Value Racing Tips Final Review

 

At the end of our trial of Value Racing tips we are pleased to report that it has been a successful trial, achieving 64 points profit at advised prices and 46 points at Betfair SP.

The return on investment for the trial was a very impressive 26% and the strike rate a solid 23%. 

The profit growth was pretty steady during the trial, as you can see from the graph below:

 

Value Racing Tips Profit Graph

Value Racing Tips Profit Graph

 

As you can see, a slight false start at the beginning but from then on it was very positive growth with a real jump towards the end.

The nice thing about this service is that all tips are simply 1 point win bets, so no crazy staking systems that you see with some other tipsters.

It’s easy to follow too with 2-3 tips per day and selections normally sent out the evening before racing, so plenty of time to get the bets on.

Looking at the longer-term results, the service has shown a high level of consistency, making over 350 points profit since its inception in November 2013. That means you would have made over £3,500 if backing to just £10 stakes or £35,000 if backing at £100 stakes.

There has only really been one period of drawdown during the lifetime of the service, which was in the Spring of this year. Otherwise it is just been steady profit growth all the way.

Our only slight concern is the bank size suggested by the service. We recently had issues with two other Betting Gods services – Big Race Bookie Busters and Serve It Up Tennis Tips – losing or virtually losing entire banks whilst we have been following them.

Well here you are advised to use a 50 point bank, but if you had joined on 9th March this year you would have lost that entire bank and more, as they dropped 57 points between then and 8th May. 

So we would recommend at least a 100 point bank – or even 150 points if you wanted to be on the really safe side.

Other than that, we think this is an excellent service and as long as you use a sufficient bank this has great potential to make consistent long-term profits.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Fairly good – with 2-3 bets per day there is a little bit of work to do but as bets are normally sent out the evening before racing, there is plenty of time to get the bets on.

Availability of prices: OK – it is usually possible to obtain the advised prices or close to them if you take prices soon after tips are sent out. But even if you just use Betfair SP, the results are still very good, with 46 points profit made during the trial, representing a 28% reduction on the advised prices.

Strike rate: Not bad at 23% – there will be some losing runs and drawdowns with that kind of strike rate, so a little bit of patience will be required.

Advised Betting Bank: They suggest a 50 point bank but given that the service has suffered a 57 point drawdown in the past, that clearly is not enough and with a 23% strike rate it was never going to be. We recommend at least a 100 point bank or even 150 to be on the safe side.

Subscription costs: You can get a 30 day trial for £1 to start the service, then it is £49.95/month, £119.95 per quarter or £279.95 for life.

Although on the face of it the costs seem quite high, to be fair we have seen services charge more than that without having such good track records, so we think the subscription costs are fair.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

It’s been a very good trial here for Value Racing Tips and we are very happy to give this a recommended rating.Horse Racing

Very solid, consistent results over a long period and a simple service to follow – we can’t really ask for more than that.

This service has proven it can do exactly what it says on the tin – find good value bets day in, day out. Sixty-four points profit to 1 point level stakes in 3 months is no mean feat.

Its long-term results show an incredible level of consistency too, with only really one drawdown period since November 2013 and the rest just solid profit growth.

The fact that it also makes good profit at Betfair SP is reassuring, so it is not just about exploiting bookies’ early prices.

As long as you use at least a 100 point bank, we see this one as a solid part of our portfolio and should provide excellent long-term profits.

If you are thinking about dipping you toe in the water before committing to the service then the nice thing is they offer a 30-day trial for just £1.

You can get Value Racing Tips here.

Results Update

4th October 2015

It’s been an encouraging time for Value Racing Tips, who have added another 26 points profit at advised prices and 23 points profit at Betfair SP.

That brings the totals for the trial to date to:

Total profit/loss (advised prices): +65.68 points

Total profit/loss (Betfair SP): +45.76 points

You can view full results here.

With an advised bank of 50 points, that means we have more than doubled the bank at advised prices and nearly doubled it at Betfair SP.

There is a great deal to like about Value Racing Tips, with all tips being 1 point level stakes, plenty of time to get the bets on and a very strong record established over the last two years.

We have just 10 days left in the trial but it looks like this one is heading for the winning systems pile, with bells on! 

Check back here for our final review in a couple of weeks’ time.

 

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

Results Update

14th September 2015

A fairly quiet time for Value Racing Tips, with 1 point lost at advised prices since out last update on 2nd September.

However, at Betfair SP there has been a loss of 9 points since our last update, so a little bit of a gap is opening up between the advised prices and Betfair SP results.

We are now two months into the trial and here are the totals so far:

Total profit/loss (advised prices): +40.18 points

Total profit/loss (Betfair SP): +22.71 points

You can view full results here.

So still going along nicely and well in profit at both advised prices and Betfair SP, but we will keep an eye on the difference between the two as the trial progresses. 

Back soon with more updates.

Value Racing Tips – Results Update

2nd September 2015

The positive run continues for Value Racing Tips, who have added another 16 points profit at advised prices and 13.75 points at Betfair SP since our last update just over a week ago. 

So the running totals since the start of the trial are as follows:

Total profit/loss (advised prices): +41.63 points

Total profit/loss (Betfair SP): +32.2 points

You can view full results here.

We are just over half way through the trial now and have nearly doubled the bank, which is very good going. If they can keep up that form for the remainder of the trial we will be looking at something special here.

Will be back with more updates soon.

In the meantime you can check out Value Racing Tips here.

Things have picked up nicely for Value Racing Tips since our last results update a couple of weeks ago. 

They are now 26 points up at advised prices and 18 points up at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

There have been some nice winners lately in the shape of Outlaw Kate at 14/1 (20.0 BSP) and Pleasach at York at 7/1.

We are about half way through the review now so will be interesting to see if they can continue this upturn in form and get close to the results achieved by stable companions Master Racing Tipster and Big Race Bookie Busters.

Will be back soon with further updates.

Value Racing Tips – Results Update

11th August 2015

It is just about a month into our trial of Value Racing Tips, and much as with our previous report, it has been slow going so far.

They are currently 1.33 points up at advised prices and -8.52 points down at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

So not much to write home about yet, but no disasters either. Just a steady eddy so far.

Let’s hope things pick up from here and they start banging in lots of winners for us.

Value Racing Tips – Results Update

28th July 2015

We are two weeks into our trial of Value Racing Tips and it has been a slow but steady start so far.

They are 3 points up at advised prices and 3 points down at Betfair SP.

You can view full results here.

They got off to a good start, hitting six winners in the first nine bets and going 25 points up in rapid fashion.

However, a run of losers from the 16th to 22nd July put a bit of a dent in the positive start they had enjoyed. So now we are more or less back where we started.

You will notice a bit of a difference in the advised prices and Betfair SP results so far, which we will keep an eye on to make sure it does not become too much of an issue.

We have high hopes for this one as it has amassed over 300 points profit to 1 point level stakes in just over 18 months prior to our trial, which is pretty impressive going.

Anyway, we will continue to update results throughout the trial and let’s hope for a few winners this week at Goodwood – and beyond.

Value Racing Tips – New Review

13th July 2015

Today we are commencing a trial of Value Racing Tips, a horse racing tipster from the Betting Gods stable. 

The service has been running since November 2013 and since that time has amassed just under 300 points profit. So that’s £3,000 profit if you’re using £10 per point or £15,000 if you were using £50 per point.

The strike rate is a pretty healthy 22% and the return on investment is also good at 20%. 

We have had great success recently with two other Betting Gods tipsters, in the form of Master Racing Tipster and Big Race Bookie Busters, who both smashed our previous records for a 3 month trial and now sit atop our tipster table.

Whether Value Racing Tips can live up to those heady levels remains to be seen, but just good solid profit is all we are looking for really.

Looking at the past results it seems the bet volume is a little higher than the other two services, being around 3 bets per day, but staking looks to be a fixed 1 point level stakes so fairly straightforward from that point of view.

Here’s hoping for a hat-trick of winning services from the Betting Gods stable as we kick off a mid Summer review of Value Racing Tips.

We will update results periodically during the trial, but in the meantime you can check out Value Racing Tips here.

 

Profit at the Races – Eight Month Update

We now have around 8 months of results for Profit at the Races so we thought it would be a good time for an update.

Here are the monthly totals since our trial finished on 9th June 2015:

 

Month Profit/loss (points)
June (from 9th onwards) -19
July -3.63
August -20.24
September 7.97
October (to 20th) 9.88
TOTAL -25.02

 

It has been a disappointing run since the trial ended, with the service dropping 25 points. That means since our trial commenced in March, the service is now 8 points down overall.

Unfortunately we do not think a service that is down after 8 months of proofed results merits a continued place on our winning systems list, so this one is downgraded to a neutral rating.

We do look for services to continue to perform consistently over a long period and to show monthly profit as far as possible.

Regrettably Profit at the Races has had quite a few losing months and with a losing record overall since we started following it about 8 months ago, we feel it leaves us little option but to downgrade the service.

However, a total of 8 points down overall is no disaster and with results recorded at Betfair SP, this is a transparent and simple service to follow.

We therefore consider that a downgrade to a neutral rating is a fair verdict.

OVERALL RATING: NEUTRAL

Profit at the Races Final Review

It’s been a solid trial for Profit at the Races here at Honest Betting Reviews. 

At the end of the three month trial period, they have finished 17 points in profit. Any profit is welcome so we are pleased with that, but things were going quite a bit better early on in the trial, reaching nearly 50 points in profit at one stage.

And just after the trial finished, they landed a 25/1 winner (sod’s law I think they call that!) so perhaps we were a little unlucky with timing.

The services focuses solely on All-Weather racing, so selections have been much fewer since the flat season got under way in May and quite a few days there are no selections at all at the moment. 

It’s very easy to follow though, with selections being provided in the morning by e-mail and you simply back them all at Betfair SP.

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

As you can see, it started off in storming fashion, booming up to nearly 50 points profit, before falling all the way back down to zero and then recovering once again to be in profit at the end.

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Very good – bets are provided in the morning (UK time) and you are instructed to place them at Betfair SP, so very quick and easy to follow.

Availability of prices: Very good – as above, the services records results at Betfair SP so you can guarantee getting the same results as they publish.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 18% so patience will be required to deal with losing runs.

Advised Betting Bank: A 100 point betting bank is advised, which seems reasonable. We were never in deficit during the trial which was good, but with a fairly low strike rate you should expect some losing runs along the way. Our longest losing run during the trial was 22.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs aren’t too bad at £29.99 per month.

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

Overall I am pleased with the results of the service. It does exactly what it says on the tin – simple, easy to follow and profitable. 

I think we were a little unlucky with timing as just after the trial finished they landed a 25/1 and a 7/1 winner, so results could have been even better.

But as long as they continue to be profitable over the long run then this service warrants a place on our winning systems list.
