These are the winning horse racing systems and tipsters that we have tested over an extended period and found to consistently generate a profit.

We use all these services ourselves and we will regularly update results to ensure a continued place on our approved list is merited

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: 

Profit at the Races Profit Graph

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.

Racing Gold Final Review

It has been a superb trial for Racing Gold, who have amassed an excellent 158 points of profit at a return on investment of 23%.

It has been pretty steady and unwavering profit throughout the trial, as you can see from the graph below:

 

Racing Gold profit graph

Racing Gold profit graph

 

As you can see, a very nice graph indeed. Things really grew fast early on, then went into a more gradual phase, before a bit of a drawdown and finally a nice rally towards the end.

The steady profit building was punctuated by a couple of superb days in the middle of the trial though. 

On 26th July they advised 5 bets, all of which won at combined odds of 498-1. Now they don’t advise you back the tips in accumulators, so we haven’t recorded that accumulator in the official results.

However, we understand some members did back the selections in an acca and were celebrating pretty wildly after that one came in!

As if that wasn’t enough though, on 16th September they went and did it again, landing an even more incredible 1406-1 accumulator with all four selections advised that day winning.

Needless to say if you had backed that one, it was a pretty good day.

Anyway, getting back to the official results, what are our overall thoughts on Racing Gold?

The results have been excellent and we have no hesitation in giving this a hearty thumbs up. Any service that can make 158 points profit in 3 months deserves much acclaim.

With a very healthy strike rate of 42% (including the horses who placed), there is real potential to build a bank with this service.

Upturn in Fortunes

Looking back at the previous results prior to our trial, we are interested to note that things have really picked up in the last 18 months or so.

From when the service started in February 2013 until 15th May 2014, they had made 105 points profit.

Since then however, the service has taken off like a rocket and added 550 points profit to stand at over 650 points in profit in total. 

We can’t  verify the results before our trial started, but have no reason to doubt the veracity of the results as those recorded on the website have been exactly as given out in the e-mails since we have been members.

We understand from Tipster Street that there was a slight change of approach that could well explain the upturn in results, as the tipster decided to focus on certain courses and races depending on the time of year. Well, it certainly seems to have worked!

Points to Note

A couple of things to note about this service. Firstly, there was quite a difference between the results at Betfair SP and the advised prices. Whilst the advised prices made 158 points profit, at Betfair SP the total profit was 97 points, which is a 39% difference and a little higher than we would like ideally. 

The prices quoted in the e-mails are those available at Betfair in the morning, but there isn’t great liquidity on Betfair at the time so you would probably be better off using the bookies prices.

Again we asked Tipster Street about this and they said they understand the liquidity isn’t always in the Betfair markets early in the morning, but the tipster does try to select races where there is better liquidity than certain other races. However they said they are considering a new pricing structure, so “watch this space” as it were!

A second thing to note regards the advised bank size to be used. With the recent debacle surrounding Big Race Bookie Busters – where a full 100 point bank was blown shortly after we gave them a recommended verdict – we are keenly aware of the need to ensure bank sizes are big enough to cope with the drawdowns and losing runs.

Although they recommend a 100 point bank for this service, it has actually endured an 81 point drawdown in its past, between September and November 2013.

We therefore think a bank of at least 150 points should be used and preferably 200 points to be on the safe side.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Fairly good – there is a little bit of work to do on your part, as there are on average 4-5 selections per day. You can just back all these at Betfair SP, but to maximise value it is worth spending some time shopping around the bookies for the best price.

Availability of prices: OK – as above, there is not much liquidity on Betfair in the mornings so best to shop around the bookies, where prices are generally fairly readily available.

Strike rate: Very good at 42% – that means lots of winners, shorter losing runs than most servies and the potential to build a bank relatively quickly.

Advised Betting Bank: As above – 100 points is advised but we think a 150 or preferably 200 point bank should be used.

Subscription costs: Excellent value for a service of this quality at just £4.99 for first month then £19.95/month, £39.95/quarter or £159.95 for lifetime

Some services of this quality charge upwards of £1,000 per year, so this is great value for a tipster with a track record like this one.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

This has been a great trial and we are delighted to place Racing Gold on our approved list – with bells on!

They have amassed 158 points profit at advised prices and just under 100 points at Betfair SP, which is a great effort in three months.

The longer term results of the service are also very impressive, with 550 points profit made in the last 18 months. How many horse racing tipsters do you know with that record? We would wager not very many.

Plus how many services out there can boast two accumulators at 500-1 and 1400-1 in less than three months?

And all that  profit is with a simple 1 or 2 points staking system and over 40% strike rate.

Added to an amazingly low subscription rate and we believe we have uncovered a real gem here with Racing Gold. 

So as long as you use at least a 150 point bank and spend a little time shopping around for the best prices each morning, we believe you will struggle to find many better tipsters than this.

You can get Racing Gold here.

 

 

 

Big Race Bookie Busters – Six Month Update

It has been six months now that we have been following Big Race Bookie Busters so we thought time for an update.

Sadly the news it not good. In fact, it’s very bad.

You may recall that Big Race Bookie Busters (or BRBB for short) racked up a hugely impressive 195 points of profit during our trial which ended in June (see below).

Well unfortunately since then the service has done its best impression of Charlie Sheen in Terminal Velocity and taken a spectacular nosedive.

Here are the results since our trial ended on 26th June 2015 in graph format:

 

Big Race Bookie Busters Profit Graph

BRBB since 26th June 2015

 

That represents a 94 point loss and with a 100 point bank advised, it is nothing short of a disaster. If you had joined a bit later in July or August at certain points, you could have lost the entire bank.

Now that is tough to take and we were backing their tips with our own money, so felt this just as keenly as anyone else.

Of course the overall picture for BRBB is that they are still over 300 points up since the service started under a year ago, which is impressive.

But the loss of the full 100 point bank is something no service should experience. It goes without saying that the advised bank was way too small and we think the advised bank should be at least 200 points, if not 250 points given the recent drawdown.

That would put the overall results into a bit of a clearer perspective, with the service having more than doubled that 250 point bank in under a year and having experienced a 40% drawdown during that period.

So the question then becomes:

Does this service still deserve its approved rating and 5 stars?

Well clearly not the 5-star rating, that will have to be revised downwards.

Overall, it is always best to take a long-term view of betting and not to judge any service on a short period like a couple of months. 

Since the start of our review, they are still over 100 points up, which is good. 

However, we appreciate that anyone who has joined this service since our trial finished at the end of June will have lost their entire bank and no doubt given up by now – perhaps rightly.

No service should ever come close to losing its entire bank – normally that would be an automatic fail for us.

So with these two conflicting points of view, we think a downgrade to a neutral rating and 3 stars is the only fair conclusion.

We believe that for the service to regain its credibility, it should revise the advised bank to 250 points and this should be sent out to all new and existing members.

It may seem a little harsh to give a service that has produced 100 points profit a neutral rating, but we believe that it is crucial that the correct bank sizes are advised and this will serve as a warning to this and all other services to make sure this aspect is carefully looked at.

Conclusion

The wheels have come off in spectacular fashion for BRBB and it has been a painful experience for all those following their tips over the last three months. The advised bank should have been much higher than 100 points – we believe 250 points would be reasonable.

So it is a downgrade to a neutral rating and 3 stars, with a note that hopefully a more realistic bank will be advised for future subscribers to this service.

RATING: NEUTRAL

Big Race Bookie Busters – Final Review

Strike Rate: 35% (incl. placed horses)
Bank Growth: 195%

Big Race Bookie Busters Final Review

It has been an excellent three month trial for Big Race Bookie Busters, amassing a fantastic 195 points profit and nearly trebling the bank over the course of the trial.

That means if you had started off with £1,000, it would be worth £2,950 now.

Even at Betfair SP they managed 134 points profit and 134% growth of the bank, which is pretty exceptional.

We thought when Banker Bets nearly doubled the bank over the course of a trial it might never be beaten. 

But now we have both Master Racing Tipster and Big Race Bookie Busters smashing their records and setting a new benchmark for tipping.

It’s a very simple service to follow – you normally have just one or two bets per day and as the name suggests, these tend to be in the big races. Tips are provided for both flat and national hunt racing.

There are detailed write-ups for the selections and you can see the thinking behind the tips. It is a traditional form-based approach, focusing on horses with a range of factors in their favour for the race.

During our trial they managed a superb 50% return on investment (ROI) and their long-term returns stand at just shy of 60%. 

That is phenomenal going and we have rarely seen such impressive figures from a tipster. It will be tough to maintain these ROI levels in the long run but as long as they keep up the consistent profits then that is the main thing.

Here is a graph of their performance over the trial: 

Big Race Bookie Busters Profit Graph

As you can see, they set off like a steam train and then continued to make steady profits throughout the trial. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Good – there are on average 1.5 bets per day so minimal work on the part of the subscriber. 

Availability of prices: OK – the tips do tend to get backed in, as evidenced by the 31% difference between results at advised prices and those at Betfair SP.

However, if you act reasonably quickly it is not impossible to get the advised prices or close to them. And even if you do just back at Betfair SP, the service still made 134 points profit over our trial, which is very good going.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was good at 35% – that’s if you include placed horses – or 15% if you talk only about winners.

Advised Betting Bank: They advise a 100 point bank, which seems just about OK. The staking ranges between 1 and 6 points for each selection, with the average being just under 3, so is quite high. If you are of the more cautious mindset you may want a 150 point bank just to be on the safe side.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are very good for a service of this quality at £4.95 for the first month then £29.95 per month, £74.95 per quarter or £199.95 for life.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

It’s been a fantastic trial for Big Race Bookie Busters and there’s very little not to like about this service – simple to follow and consistent profits at a very reasonable cost.

To have nearly trebled the bank in three months is an outstanding achievement and they deserve great credit for that. 

This one definitely goes on our approved list and we have no hesitation in recommending it. Get on board if you want to bust the bookies too!

Horse Racing

The Win Picker – New Review

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing tipster called The Win Picker.

This is a straightforward tipping service that provides on average 2-3 tips per day, to be placed at Betfair SP.

We always like services that advise bets simply at Betfair SP, as it means that everyone knows they can match the results, so that is already a plus in our book.

They also back all selections to 1 point level stakes, another positive in our view.

The sales page boasts excellent results since the service started in January of this year.

They claim to have had no losing months and to have amassed £3,239.91 in 2015 to £25 stakes, including deducting 5% commission from Betfair.

The service is run by a guy called Kevin Butler who says he has honed his technique over many years, although he doesn’t give away too many secrets about what his selection criteria is.

To get things going they are offering a generous offer of £20 for 100 days of tips – which is just enough for us to complete a full review. 🙂

We actually started receiving the tips from 27th July 2015 so we will record results from then.

If the results during our trial can match those on the sales page, we should be in for a treat.

We will provide regular updates throughout the trial on how this one gets on.

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

Racing Professionals Flat Service – Final Review

Racing Professionals Flat Service Final Review

Well at the end of our trial of the Racing Professionals Flat Service, what can we say – other than it has been something of a sorry story for them over the last three months.

Sadly they have ended up with a 132 point deficit and have lost 88% of the advised bank. 

They do rely somewhat on picking some big priced winners, with past results showing winners at 100/1 and above, so they are perhaps just one big winner away from turning things around.

Unfortunately though, we can only judge a service on what is has achieved during our trial and with an 88% loss of the bank, it has been a disappointing run.

Certainly we would suggest that on the basis of this trial, a 150 point bank is not nearly enough and 300 points or more would be appropriate.

You should never get this close to losing your entire bankroll, although we suspect in reality after a drawdown like this most people would have stopped following the tips in any event.

Anyway, here are the results in graph format:

Racing Professionals Flat Service Profit Graph

It’s been one way traffic – unfortunately the wrong way – for the majority of the trial. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Very good – the tips are sent out by e-mail early in the morning and then all bets are simply placed at Betfair SP, so very quick to operate.

Availability of prices: As above, with all bets placed at Betfair SP, there are no issues around price availability.

Strike rate: With the strike rate for the trial down at just 10%, it was clearly well below the expected level for the service to make a profit.

Advised Betting Bank: The advised bank was 150 points, which was clearly not enough as we lost 132 points and 88% of the bank. We would think a 300 point bank would be needed given the drawdown experienced during our trial.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are high at £44.99 per month.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: FAILED  

There doesn’t seem to be any other possible verdict than failed with a 132 point loss and 88% bank decline.

This trial has shown once again that it is no easy ride making money in this game and some long losing runs can hit anyone, whatever their experience and level of expertise.

Hopefully they will hit a nice 100/1 winner soon and get back on track, but for the moment this one has to be added to the failed systems pile.

Lucky 7 Naps Final Review

One of the things we pay most attention to when reviewing a service is ensuring that it is practical to follow for you good folk who read our reviews.

There is no point in a service achieving fantastic results at their advised prices, only for you to sign up and find out you can’t get anything like the advised prices and struggle to make a profit.

Well sadly in the case of Lucky 7 Naps, that has been exactly the scenario.

Whilst they have made a startling 449 points profit at advised prices, they have in fact made an 80 point loss at Betfair SP.

Now normally we would expect there to be a bit of a difference between advised prices and Betfair SP results. We would say a 25-35% difference would be acceptable.

Looking at two recent successful reviews for example, Master Racing Tipster and Big Race Bookie Busters, there was a 32% and 31% difference respectively between their advised prices and Betfair SP results.

In the case of Lucky 7 Naps however, the difference is over 100%! That’s because the Betfair SP is a minus number so we are talking about a minus percentage!

We are not mathematicians, but let’s just say the difference is over 100% and basically means the service has made a substantial loss at Betfair SP, meaning we don’t think the service is practical to follow at Betfair SP.

Here are the Betfair SP results in graph format anyway:

Lucky 7 Naps Profit Graph

As you can see, after a good start, it went quite steeply into negative territory and despite a rally late on, still ended up 80 points down. 

So if you exclude backing at Betfair SP, what about trying to match the advised prices?

Well unfortunately we found that incredibly difficult as well. Often prices would crash as soon as the e-mail containing the tips was sent out.

By the time we had logged onto Oddschecker, found the best price, logged into the relevant bookie and found the race, the price would have crashed. In some cases it would have halved in just a few minutes.

As the comments below by some of our readers suggests, that is very frustrating and we found this service a trying one to follow to say the least.

We are not sure if prices crash because the service is so popular, because bookies slash the prices as soon as they see the e-mail, or whether the tips are due to information being passed on and the insiders have already backed the tips. But whatever the reason, the prices were simply unobtainable the majority of the time. 

At advised prices, we just about broke even over the trial – and that involved a lot of work just to achieve that.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: As above – quite tough. Leaving aside the aforementioned problem with prices, there are on average 4.6 bets per day, so you will be quite busy placing the bets and finding the best prices before they disappear.

Availability of prices: As we have said, very poor. Prices tend to crash very quickly and we found often as soon as we had logged into our bookie accounts after receiving the e-mail. Expect 30-50% drops in prices quite regularly.

Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 25%, which was ok and about in line with the long-term results we believe.

Advised Betting Bank: The advised bank was 300 points, which seems reasonable as staking is normally 5 points per bet. As Betfair SP the bank reduced by 27% over the trial.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are high at £28.50 per week, £66 per month or £133.50 per quarter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL  

This is a difficult service to give an overall verdict on. 

On the one hand, we were tempted to give it a failed rating, based on the 80 point loss at Betfair SP and the frustrations at trying to get the prices matched.

However, to be fair if you really tried hard you might just have eeked out a profit during the period we conducted our trial, if you were really on the ball and acted the very second you received the e-mail.

In reality, we expect most people would have done as we did and broke even or made a small loss.

So whilst we cannot recommend this service and found it difficult to follow, we do not believe it deserves an outright fail either. 

We believe only services that make a big loss at all price levels should receive a failed rating and this one didn’t do that.

So on balance a neutral rating seems the fairest verdict, but with a substantial health warning that prices are very difficult to obtain.

Racing Professionals AW – Seven Month Update

It is now four months since we completed our trial of Racing Professionals AW and gave it an approved rating.

We like to keep an eye on our winning systems here at Honest Betting Reviews rather than just reviewing products and then forgetting about them.

So how have things been going since we reviewed this tipster back in March?

Well unfortunately things have taken a turn for the worse and they have dropped 35 points since the end of our trial.

You can view full results here.

That leaves them just 20 points up after seven months of bets, which translates into a 4% ROI and 20% bank growth over that period.

Unfortunately we are going to have to downgrade Racing Professionals AW to a neutral rating.

We look for services to have an ROI over 10% to be on our approved list, unless they have exceptionally high bet volume or strike rate.

More importantly though, we would look for bank growth to be significantly higher than 20% after seven months and perhaps to have doubled or more in that time.

So all in all this one doesn’t quite justify a place on our recommended list at the moment. But who knows, they do tend to tip some big priced winners, so maybe a 100/1 winner is just around the corner…

In the meantime we will continue to keep an eye on things and see if they can pick up their form again.

SEVEN MONTH VERDICT: NEUTRAL RATING

Racing Professionals AW Final Review

This is a service that advises 1 point level stakes bets at Betfair SP on the All-Weather. It is a complimentary service to their principal one which runs during the main flat season on the turf.

The published results on the website are excellent, running back to 2008 and range between 100 and 478 points profit a year.

Digging a little deeper though, there are some massive priced winners that make up quite a large portion of those profits.

For example, in 2014 they made 244 points profit, which is an impressive £24,400 to £100 level stakes. However, a big portion of that was made up of one winner at 100/1.

And in 2013, they made 462 points profit, but nearly half of that was made up of one winner at over 200/1.

Still, even if you take off those massive winners they are still turning a decent profit so I started out the trial with high hopes for this service.

So, how did it pan out?

I began subscribing to this service on 28th November 2014 and it has been something of a rollercoaster ride to say the least over my 3 month trial!

As you might expect by looking at past results, there were some tough losing runs during the trial.

Then all of a sudden a big priced winner would pop up to turn things around.

As it did on 24th February when Atwix won at a BSP of 74! That turned what had been a losing 2015 up until then into a nicely profitable one.

Overall  a very pleasing return of 55 points, or £2,750 to £50 level stakes during the course of the trial, for what is very little work on the part of the subscriber.

You can see the kind of rollercoaster ride it was from the graph below:

Statistics

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Good, tips are sent out by e-mail and usually arrive by midday.

Availability of prices: Excellent. I particularly like that bets are advised at Betfair SP (BSP) so no fancy prices that nobody can obtain and very little time needed to place the bets.

Strike rate: The strike rate is surprisingly high for a service that picks out such huge priced winners, being around 20-30% historically. That is basically because whilst they tip at some massive prices, they also have quite a few at odds-on – and everything in between!

Advised Betting Bank: They advise a 100 point bank, which seems a little on the low side considering we were nearly 50 points down at one stage during the trial. That would have equated to half the bank. I would think a 150 point bank would be more appropriate here.

Subscription costs: A fairly reasonable £29.99 per month

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

The trial finished with a nice profit of +55 points at BSP, so good results for a couple of minutes work a day.

You could say that if it hadn’t been for that one winner at 74 BSP then the trial would have finished down.

To be fair to them though, they also had second places at over 50/1 and 20/1, so as football managers are often keen to point out, luck has a tendency to level itself out over the course of a season. That seems to have been the case here rather than them having been “bailed out” with one lucky winner.

All in all then it gets the thumbs up from me and goes onto the approved list.

It does come with a bit of a health warning though – expect some big ups and downs, this is not a ride for the feint hearted!

But a great feeling when one of those massive outsiders comes romping home.

I will continue to monitor the service and provide updates on how this one performs.

Racing Gold – New Review

Today we are commencing a new review of Racing Gold from the Tipster Street stables.

This is a straightforward horse racing tipster service. Their recorded results are very impressive, having amassed just under 500 points profit since the service started in February 2013.

There are quite a large number of tips, with the average being 118  per month, which works out at about 4 bets per day. 

What we think is quite promising about this service is the nice steady profit graph, showing consistent profit accumulated month-in month-out over a period of two and a half years.

The strike rate is also pretty high at 35%, so Racing Gold is looking like a promising find.

We are also impressed by the low cost, at just £4.99 for the first month and then £19.95 per month or £39.95 per quarter.

As ever though, let’s see how they get on during our trial – we have seen plenty of services that looked good on paper but then failed to deliver under live test conditions.

We will run the trial for the normal 3 months, which should give us a very good quantity of bets on which to judge them. 

Fingers crossed that we have found another gem here. 🙂

Stable Connection – New Review

NOTE – THIS SERVICE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED

—————————————————————————————————————

You can check out Stable Connection here.

Today we are commencing a trial of Stable Connection, a specialist horse racing service. 

Darren who runs the service says he has built up some stable contacts over the years and they supply him with reliable inside information. 

He then puts the selections through his own elimination system which improves results even further.

In the last 11 months the service claims 188 points profit to 1 point level stakes, with a strike rate of 41.7%.

That’s very impressive stuff and it would be quite something if those sort of results could be repeated during our trial.

We will undertake a three month trial and see how results stack up at the end of the review.

In the meantime, you can check out Stable Connection here.

Dark Horses Final Review

The third and final of our trials of Tony Gibson’s betting systems, Dark Horses is a simple betting system selecting just one or two horses per day to back.

The service claimed profits of over 300 points coming into our trial, but unfortunately as with our two other reviews of Tony’s services – the Value Seeker and Tim Russell’s Private Service – it has failed to live up to previous results during our trial.

A profit of two points was made at advised prices, whilst backing at Betfair SP (BSP) resulted in a 9 point loss.

So nothing too bad, but not something to get excited about either I’m afraid.

Ease of use: OK – you have to log in to a forum to find the selections rather than receiving them by e-mail. Tips are available by around 10 am daily (UK time) and bets are simply backed at Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG) bookmakers each morning after selections are given out. There are a maximum of 2 bets per day so shouldn’t take long to place the bets.

Availability of prices: Fairly good – prices were generally available for long enough to enable you to place bets. There was a difference of around 10 points between results at advised prices and BSP, which isn’t too bad. 

Strike rate: The strike rate during our review was 19%, which means there will be some drawdowns along the way using this service.

Advised Betting Bank: A 50 point betting bank is advised, which was never in danger of being lost during the trial and seems reasonable.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are very reasonable at £30 per month, which includes not just the Dark Horses betting tips but a suite of other systems and tips from Tony Gibson’www.bettingsystem.info website.

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL  

As the service just made a small profit of 2 points during our trial, it doesn’t seem to quite warrant inclusion in our passed systems, and it seems fairer to put it in our neutral category for now.

I had been hoping for better things from our reviews of Tony Gibson’s systems but that is betting for you – don’t rely on anything!

Perhaps things will pick up for these systems – we will keep an eye on them and report back in due course.
