Racing Consultants – Re-Review

17th May 2022

One of the first services we reviewed back when launching this website was a horse racing service called Racing Consultants.

In our original review back in 2015 (see below) it made an excellent 135 points profit, earning a deserved PASSED rating.

We then updated our review back in 2017, at which point it had made 255 points profit since we began following the service.

Regular followers will know one of the most important qualities we look for in a service is longevity – the ability to produce a long-term profit over the course of many years.

That proves a service is not just a flash in the pan or had a lucky run, but has a genuine edge over the bookies. It is these time-tested services that tend to prove their worth in the long run, whilst other services fall off and disappear.

In this spirit it is noteworthy that the Racing Consultants have continued to produce impressive results after our last review update and are now a massive 1,000 points up in total and have a body of work going back over eight years.

That puts them in a very exclusive club of tipsters and always makes us sit up and take notice.

So it is high time to take another look at the service and update our original review from a few years ago.

Just a note that when we did our original review there were two tipsters – Rory Delargy and David Massey, but now it is just Rory.

That hasn’t harmed the results at all – in fact since Rory took solo charge in 2017 the results have been just as impressive, if not better.

Mr Delargy is well known in racing circles, being chief British racing correspondent for the Irish Field newspaper, and also writes a daily column for the Irish Daily Star, having previously been a regular pundit on Timeform Radio and William Hill Racing Radio.

What you get with the service is detailed write-ups and analysis of the tips so you can see the level of knowledge and insight Rory has.

Anyway, without further ado we will get this re-review underway and hopefully we haven’t jinxed things with our build-up here…

It’s worth pointing out there is currently a half-price trial for the first month, which is a decent offer given the results achieved.

Racing Consultants – 20 Month Update

1st March 2017

Here at Honest Betting Reviews, we don’t like to just review a service for three months and then forget about it.

No, we like to keep monitoring services to see if they continue meriting the original rating we gave them.

So in that spirit, today we are updating a service we have been following for close to 20 months – the Racing Consultants.

This is a horse racing tipping service with tips provided by two industry experts, Rory Delargy and David Massey.

They originally gained an approved rating from us, notching up a very impressive 135 points of profit during the three month trial back in 2015.

It has been something of a rollercoaster ride since then though, with good profits made in the remainder of 2015 following our trial, but then a tough 2016, with a loss of 17 points made on the year.

Thankfully 2017 has started off more positively, with 60 points of profit having been made to date.

Overall then since we have been following them, the Racing Consultants have made 255 points profit, which is a decent total.

And since the service started in June 2014, they have made 545 points profit. The yearly totals are as follows:-

  • 2014 – 197 points profit
  • 2015 – 305 points profit
  • 2016 – 17 point loss
  • 2017 to date – 60 points profit

So if you had been following them right from the start, you would have done very well.

However, we can only speak of how they have done from when we started monitoring the tips, so what is our feeling now after 20 months?

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

We believe that having made profits of over 250 points since we started following them, the Racing Consultants are still deserving of a recommended rating.

We recognise however that many people will have found the going very tough during 2016 and to have made a loss over the course of a whole year is disappointing.

The majority of punters will have deserted them during 2016, which is understandable given that you would have to pay subscription fees on top of having lost money.

So we are downgrading them from 4.5 stars to 3.5 stars to take the rocky year of 2016 into account.

We will continue monitoring things and hopefully results will continue in the positive fashion they have started in 2017.

Racing Consultants – Final Review

Normally when we hear the words “industry insiders” we make sure our wallets are firmly closed and head for the exit as quickly as possible.

It is usually the fastest way to the poor house to follow so-called “experts” who claim to have some kind of inside knowledge that will make you untold riches. The vast majority of the time it is either lies – they don’t have any special insights – or the info they do have is worse than useless.

So we have been pleasantly surprised by the achievements of two well-known racing industry professionals, Rory Delargy and David Massey, during our trial of their Racing Consultants service.

Rory commentates on William Hill Radio and Timeform Radio and is also an Irish Field Naps Correspondent.

David Massey – aka “Chutney Dave” – is also a  commentator on William Hill Radio and works for Bet Racing Nation.

To be fair, their “industry insiders” tag is more to do with the fact that they work in the business and so living and breathing it every day has given them a great depth of knowledge, rather than being given any mysterious “inside info” about horses supposedly due to run well.

The hard work they put in has clearly paid off as they amassed a superb 135 points profit during our trial at advised prices and 129 points profit at Betfair SP.

Here are the results in graph format:

 

Racing Consultants Profit Graph

Profit graph for Racing Consultants

 

As you can see, a very dramatic jump occurred around half way through the trial, when they landed an audacious 66/1 double – whilst backing the selections as singles as well. 

That gave the results a boost of about 80 points in one fell swoop. Even taking that out of the equation though, they still made over 50 points profit from all their other selections, which is none too shabby.

You will note the very close totals there between advised prices and Betfair SP, which is very encouraging. So you should be able to just about match the published results just using Betfair.

You can view a full reasoning behind the tips each day via the website and it is reassuring to see the amount of work that has gone in to producing the selections.

Looking at their performance overall, they have made just under 400 points profit since the service started in June 2014. That equates to 25 points profit per month.

Now we haven’t officially proofed the previous results prior to our three month trial, but we have been subscribers to the service since late 2014 so can testify that the published results are accurate.

They have shown a decent level of consistency too, with 12 out of 16 months being winning months.

So a definite pass rating for the Racing Consultants. Let’s have a look now at how the service breaks down.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: OK – there are on average 3.4 bets per day, so a bit of time is needed each day to put the bets on.

Availability of prices: OK – tips are normally sent out in the morning, with best bookies prices quoted. Some of those prices do get pushed in initially. But with the Betfair SP results nearly equaling the advised prices, that should not be a problem.

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial might be a little low for some people’s tastes at 15%. That means there are some losing runs to cope with and patience is required if you want to follow this service.

Advised Betting Bank: The advised betting bank is 100 points which we think is just about OK. There have been a couple of 40-odd point drawdowns over the lifetime of the service, so if you wanted to be on the safe side we think a 150 point bank would be advisable.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs are very fair considering the quality of results they have achieved, at £39.99 per month or £199 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED  

Overall we have been very impressed with the results achieved by the Racing Consultants. We were perhaps a little lucky to hit them at their best time, with a double that added 80 points to the bank landed during our trial.

At the same time though, they do advise quite a few of these special bets, a number of which have been close, so were maybe due one coming in for them.

Even leaving that aside however, they still made over 50 points profit during the trial. And the fact that the Betfair SP results almost matched the advised price results means you should be able to achieve close to the published results – which is not something you can say about every service we review here.

So in summary we are delighted to find some “industry insiders” who actually know what they are doing for once and put in genuine hard work to achieve great results for their subscribers. 

Highly recommended.

Results Update

28th September 2015

The Racing Consultants continue in excellent form, adding another another 25 points of profit at advised prices and 22 points at Betfair SP.

That brings their totals for the trial to:

Total at advised prices: +150 points 

Total at Betfair SP: +144 points

You can view full results here.

 

The highlight of recent results was Go Far at Ayr on 18th September which was tipped at 25/1 and won at a Betfair SP of 28.

This has been superb stuff during our trial and with under two weeks to go we can only think a passed rating awaits them.

We will return soon with our trial conclusion and final verdict, but in the meantime you can check out the Racing Consultants here. 

 

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

Results Update

9th September 2015

The Racing Consultants have been in fantastic form since our last update, producing a superb 88 points of profit at advised prices and 96 points profit at Betfair SP.

That means their totals for the trial now stand at:

Total at advised prices: +125 points 

Total at Betfair SP: +122 points

You can view full results here.

 

Their results were helped greatly by a magnificent double a couple of weeks ago at Catterick, where they firstly landed Di’s Gift at 5/1 and then followed it up with Llewellyn at 10/1 an hour later. 

They backed not only the singles but also a double at 66/1 to give 78 points profit on the day. Awesome stuff!

That now means they have more than doubled the bank since the beginning of our trial two months ago. Highly commendable work from the lads.

We have just under a month to go on this one, but barring some kind of dramatic collapse a la the Australian batting line-up, this one looks headed for the winning systems list.

We will be back soon with further updates.

In the meantime you can check out the Racing Consultants here.

It continues to be a very low volume service with just 43 bets since our trial started in October. There were just two bets in March, both of which were successful lays so you could say a “100% record!” 🙂

The Lay Bet Tipster – New Review

4th October 2022

Here at Honest Betting Reviews we have scoured the market far and wide over the last seven years in search of good lay betting services. 

Sadly to date we have only really uncovered one good laying service that is still going and that is Little Acorns.

In theory it sounds easy to bet on horses to lose – surely anyone can find horses that aren’t going to win today, or any other day for that matter if you consider some horses we have backed over the years.

It is actually much more difficult in practice and just like any other form of betting, it relies on finding value. 

One service that looks like it may have cracked the code of laying however is The Lay Bet Tipster, which we are starting a review of today. 

It has been proofing to the Betting Gods platform for six months now and in that time has made a highly creditable 74 points profit to 1 point lay bets. 

That’s a more than decent total to have amassed from lay betting and it has come with a high strike rate of 84%, which means a very high proportion of winning bets. 

In terms of the ROI, that currently sits at just over 8% which is pretty good considering the very high strike rate.

The monthly profits have been very stable and consistent too which is something we like to see. 

Tips are provided by a chap called Darren who is an accountant-turned-full-time professional bettor. 

He says he “started betting on horses part-time to gain a second income. Fast forward a few years and clearly, my accountancy skills paid off as I found a lucrative way to profit from the horses and make it my full-time income.”

Making an income from betting is no easy feat so it probably helps to have the skills and attention to detail of an accountant to make it work. 

In any event, the true test will be whether he can produce the goods under live trial conditions so we’ll get our review underway today and will update results here soon so you can see how he’s getting on. 

In the meantime you can check out the Lay Bet Tipster for yourself here.

 

 

 

Racing Success – New Review

We are starting a new review today of a horse racing service called Racing Success

This is a service that bets solely at Betfair SP, which will be of interest to those whose accounts have been restricted at the bookies. 

The selections apparently come from a complex horse profiling algorithm, which has been tested and refined over a number of years. 

Results posted on the Racing Success look very impressive, particularly when you consider they are at Betfair SP. 

Reported results for the last few years are:

  • 2023 – 139 points
  • 2022 – 347 points
  • 2021 – 495 points
  • 2020 – 234 points
  • 2019 – 504 points
  • 2018 – 400 points

As you can see those are superb results at BSP and if they can be repeated in a live trial it would be quite a feat.

We note the service went live last year so the results for 2023 are the most relevant and have been proofed elsewhere.

Selections can be backed win-only at BSP or win and place, depending on each user’s preference. Backing the place seems to give enhanced profits and smooth the ride so we intend to include both in our trial. 

Interestingly they only bet on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We are not sure why those days specifically – perhaps they have been shown to be more profitable under the algorithm. 

Anyway, this is a review we are quite excited about as to find a racing service that is profitable at Betfair SP would be a huge bonus and something we know a lot of you are seeking. 

So we will kick things off today and report back soon here on how things are going.

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

Cotsworld Racing – Full Review

 

Cotswold Racing is a horse racing tipster covering UK and Irish racing, from the Tipsters Empire stable of tipping experts. 

The tipster himself comes from the Cotsworlds near Cheltenham (hence the name) and grew up with horse racing.

He says he uses “a selection of databases and information sources that are helping me to find even more winners and gain even better results. The key is not to get overwhelmed with it all, find the sources that work for you and be diligent.

“When punting I tend to shy away from the obvious and am always on the look out for value, often recommending a horse that will be a lot shorter than its early price.”

That strategy appears to have set him in good stead, with very substantial profits made coming into our trial and a formidable reputation. 

So how did it go in the live trial? 

Well we followed the tips for a period of nine months, which gave us a decent sample size of over 540 bets. 

It took things quite a while to get going and we were slightly in deficit for a fair part of the trial. 

However, this was one of those instances where patience was rewarded, as the service eventually came good and got the trial into profit. 

In the end they finished 36 points up at advised prices, which was a solid return. 

That was achieved with a return on investment (ROI) of 6% and strike rate of 32% (including placed horses). 

Here you can see how things really came good towards the end of our trial after a bit of a struggle through the middle part:

The service didn’t perform quite so well at Betfair SP however, with a loss of 31 points made at BSP for our trial. 

Overall then it was a solid, if unspectacular, trial.

A profit is still a profit and is not to be sniffed at so we award Cotswold Racing a narrow PASSED rating at the end of our nine month review.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, either in the evening before racing or at around 9am on the morning of racing. Either way there is plenty of time to get the bets on and with around 2 bets per day on average the workload is very manageable. 

Availability of prices: There was a little bit of pressure on prices as this is a popular service and it is able to identify value and the beat the SP quite frequently, so it is advisable to get your bets on as soon as possible after bets are sent out. A wide spread of bookie accounts is also recommended for following the service.  

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was good at 32% (including placed horses) so there was a reasonably steady rate of returns throughout the trial. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 150 point bank is recommended for following the service which seems reasonable to us and was more than enough to cope with the ups and downs during our trial.

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £45 per month, £120 per quarter, £200 for 6 months or £350 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

Cotswold Racing is a horse racing tipster covering UK and Irish racing and produced a solid, if unspectacular, 36 points profit during our nine month trial. 

It was a decent enough profit to warrant a narrow PASSED rating from us and given the results posted prior to our trial, it is a service to keep an eye on for the long term.

Cotswold Racing – Results Update

20th April 2023

A slight step backwards for of horse racing tipster Cotswold Racing lately, with a loss of 8 points made to advised prices since our last update.

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

You can view full results here.

The results at Betfair SP continue to lag those at advised prices, with a loss of 24 points made since our last update and 37 points lost for our trial overall at BSP. 

Partly that is due to an each-way double which was advised across two weekends, with one of the legs being punted down from an advised price of 7.0 to a BSP of 2.95 (please note that the BSP price of the each-way double is estimated based on the BSP win prices).

It is also down to the fact – as mentioned before with other horse racing services – that when tipping each-way bets with extra places at the bookies, quite a few of these will finish fifth and sixth etc and produce returns with the bookmakers but be losing bets on Betfair. 

The third factor is simply horses being backed and their prices at BSP being lower than the advised prices. 

Although the BSP results have struggled a little in our trial so far, as noted in our previous update it is actually the case that since the service began, the BSP results have outperformed those at advised prices, so it may just be a temporary phenomenon that they have lagged a little so far in our trial.

Anyway, we will have to see more results to see how the BSP results hold up over the long term. It is worth noting that since the service began, the BSP results have actually outperformed those at advised prices, so it may just be a temporary phenomenon that they have lagged a little so far in our trial.

Cotswold Racing – New Review

9th January 2023

We are starting a new review today of a horse racing service called Cotswold Racing. 

This is a very prominent tipster from the Tipsters Empire stable who has built up a very respected reputation as one of the best tipsters out there over the last couple of years.

The tipster himself comes from the Cotsworlds near Cheltenham (hence the name) and grew up with horse racing. He says he uses “a selection of databases and information sources that are helping me to find even more winners and gain even better results. The key is not to get overwhelmed with it all, find the sources that work for you and be diligent.

“When punting I tend to shy away from the obvious and am always on the look out for value, often recommending a horse that will be a lot shorter than its early price.”

That approach appears to have served him very well, with a profit of 430 points made since starting up in 2020. 

That has been achieved with a solid strike rate of 31% and a good return on investment of 15%

What is perhaps even more impressive though is the return achieved at Betfair SP, which is even better than the results at advised prices, with 555 points profit made at a return on investment of 19%

That means it could perhaps be the “holy grail” of horse racing – a service that is profitable to follow at BSP over the long term. 

Looking at the profit graph from the last couple of years is something to behold and the kind of smooth upward progress most tipsters can only dream of: 

So it’s with great anticipation that we get this trial of one of the most promising tipsters we’ve come across in some time underway. As ever, results will be updated here as we go along.

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

King of the Picks – Full Review

 

King of the Picks is a horse racing tipping service for UK and Irish racing. 

The service is run by a chap called called Hugh Doyle. That name may sound familiar to our regular visitors – well Hugh is actually the brother of the man behind the Bet Alchemist, Nicky Doyle.

The Bet Alchemist is a service we’ve previously reviewed here and given a positive rating to and is one of our top recommended horse racing tipsters.  So horse racing tipping seems to run in the family!

Hugh started his King of the Picks service during covid when unfortunately he lost his job. He had been a successful punter for a while on a part-time basis so after losing his job decided to start betting full-time to try and make a proper go of it. 

It might sound like a risky move but Hugh had the results to back it up, which coming into our trial looked very good. 

The bets are a mixture of win and each-way and are mainly focused on the weekends and big festivals.

We ended up running an extensive 20-month trial in the end which gave us a very good sample size of over 1200 bets. 

At the end of this extended trial, Hugh finished with a commendable 100 points profit at advised prices. 

It’s always nice to see a service break through the 100-point barrier over the course of a trial, which is no mean feat – although this one did take a little longer than most trials we run here. 

Still, 100 points profit is a very good mark to hit and it was achieved with a strike rate of 35% (including placed horses) and a return on investment (ROI) of 4%

Things started off very well before tailing off towards the middle, but really picked up again over the second half of the trial to finish strongly in profit:

Encouragingly for those whose bookie accounts have been restricted, the service also made a very healthy 72 points profit at Betfair SP. 

All in all then a solid effort by King of the Picks and we are happy to award the service a PASSED rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are sent out by e-mail, either in the evening before racing or more often at around 10am on the day racing. Either way there is plenty of time to get the bets on and with around 2 bets per day on average the workload is very manageable. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice a huge impact on prices so you should be able to get close to the recorded results without too much problem.   

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was good at 35% (including placed horses) so there was a reasonably steady rate of returns throughout the trial. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 200 point bank is recommended for following the service which seems reasonable to us and was more than enough to cope with an extended drawdown in the first half of our trial.  

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are £29 per month, £79 per quarter, £150 for 6 months or £259 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

After an extended 20 month trial, horse racing tipster King of the Picks delivered a commendable 100 points profit at advised prices.

The results were solid rather than spectacular, with bank growth of 50% over the course of the trial. 

With a good profit made however and strong results over the second half of our trial in particular, including at Betfair SP, we are happy to award this service a PASSED rating.

There has been a slightly smaller dip at Betfair SP, with a loss of just 2 points made since our last update and 46 points profit made for our trial overall at BSP.

They did have a nice winner at Ascot last week however, with Rohann winning at an advised price of 14/1 and a massive BSP of 32.0. 

A few more winners like that and they’ll be really flying!

King of the Picks – New Review

4th February 2022

When covid hit it affected us all in different ways. It was a tough time for everyone and for Hugh Doyle, sadly it meant he lost his job.

Having been betting on the horses for decades though and achieving good returns, he decided to turn his attention to betting full-time in November 2020.

His results since then have been quite remarkable and Hugh is probably glad he did back himself to bet on the gee-gees full time! He has now launched his tipping service to share his tips with the public and it’s called King of the Picks.

With over 200 points profit made at a 15% ROI according to his website he’s been doing very well.

The name Hugh Doyle may sound familiar – well he is actually the brother of the Bet Alchemist, Nicky Doyle. That’s a service we’ve previously reviewed and given a positive rating to. It has continued to perform well since our review ended. So Hugh comes from good betting stock anyway!

The bets are a mixture of win and each-way and are mainly focused on the weekends and big festivals. So it should be quite straightforward to follow and generally you could better liquidity on those races so prices hold up better.

So all in all looks pretty good and as a special offer Hugh is offering a FREE month’s trial to test the service out.

Anyway, we will kick things off today and hopefully Hugh can continue his form during our review and beyond. All results will be recorded here as we go along as usual.

In the meantime you can check out King of the Picks for yourself here.

The Haymaker – Full Review

 

The Haymaker is a horse racing tipster and it comes from the Back Lucrative stable. It is the first time they have ever provided the services of an external tipster rather than producing their own tips. 

The results coming into our trial were so good according to Back Lucrative that they were blown away and felt they had to launch the service to the public. 

That was quite a claim and certainly piqued our interest for the trial. 

Essentially it is a straightforward tipping service with a combination of win bets, plus some place bets and some insurebets. 

We hadn’t actually come across a tipster using insurebet before, but basically it means your bet wins if the selection wins, however if it places you get your full stake back.

The slight wrinkle with using insurebet is that there’s isn’t an exchange equivalent, so that precluded the chance to proof this service at Betfair SP.

In any event, we were able to proof the service at advised prices and followed the tips for just under a year, giving a good sample size of 533 bets. 

Tips are provided by logging into a website only and are not sent by e-mail, Telegram or any other means. 

Unfortunately it was a case of the “curse of the triallist” with this one as once our trial got underway things really nosedived, going over 50 points down early on.

Slowly and surely they fought their way back however, managing to claw things back and end the trial 19 points in profit

That come at a strike rate of 38% and a return on investment of 1%

That was a good effort and as we often say here, any sort of profit is not to be sneezed at. 

At the same time though, just 19 points profit for nearly a year’s worth of tipping and over 500 bets isn’t quite what members would be looking for, particularly once subscription costs are taken into account. 

So in the end we think a NEUTRAL rating is fair for The Haymaker. A solid effort to fight back after a tough start but not quite enough to generate a passed rating. 

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: The selections are found by logging into the Back Lucrative website and are usually posted early in the morning on the day of racing.  With around 2 bets per day on average it is fairly straightforward to follow. 

Availability of prices: We didn’t notice a huge impact on prices so you should be able to get close to the recorded results without too much problem. As mentioned above though, certain bets aren’t available on exchanges so you will need bookie accounts to follow the advised bets fully.   

Strike rate: The strike rate for our trial was okay at 38% but would probably need to be a little higher to generate a consistent profit. 

Advised Betting Bank: We used a 100 point bank for the purposes of our review which did become a little threatened when things went badly early on, so a 150-200 point bank might be more appropriate for following the service. 

Subscription costs: The current subscription costs at the time of writing are free for the first 7 days then £39 per month or £99 per quarter.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL

The Haymaker is a horse racing service from the Back Lucrative stable. It is the first external tipster they have ever offered on their platform. 

Our trial got off to a slow start, going over 50 points down early on but they battled back to finish 19 points up

Although a valiant effort, it wasn’t quite enough to merit a passed rating for a year’s worth of betting and over 500 bets, so this service is awarded a NEUTRAL rating from us.

The Haymaker – New Review

2nd September 2022

We are starting a new trial today of a horse racing service called The Haymaker.

This comes from the Back Lucrative stable and is the first time they have ever provided the services of an external tipster rather than producing their own tips. 

They say they have been proofing this tipster for over two years, which is a very good proofing period, and were blown away by the results. 

With 934 points profit made so far at a strike rate of 52% and an ROI of 35%, we’re not surprised they have been blown away to be honest! 

That ts a pretty amazing combination of stats, particularly to have such a high strike rate (over half the bets being winners) whilst still having such an impressive ROI. 

We have rarely seen figures like those in all our years of testing tipsters and betting systems, so it will be interesting to see if those can be maintained during our trial (and beyond). 

It’s slightly different to services we have reviewed before as the bets are a mixture of straightforward win bets, plus some place bets and some insurebets. 

We haven’t actually come across a tipster using insurebet before, but basically it means your bet wins if the selection wins, however if it places you get your full stake back.

The slight wrinkle with using insurebet is that there’s isn’t an exchange equivalent, so Michael recommends just betting those to win on the exchange if you aren’t able to access bookmakers anymore. 

In any event, it does look like a very promising service and there’s been quite a bit of buzz around its release. 

As ever we will reserve judgement until we’ve seen how it performs under a live trial, but fingers crossed it can continue producing the kind of results seen over the last two years.

Results will be updated here as we go along as usual so you can see how it is getting on.

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

 

 

 

Each Way Tips – Results Update

It’s been a solid start to our trial of horse racing tipster Each Way Tips, with a profit of 5 points made to advised prices after two months. 

You can view full results here.

It’s a similar story at Betfair SP, with a profit of 6 points made for our trial to date. 

A simple staking system of one point each-way on every selection is used, which we like to see.

In any event, a solid start here for them to build on going forward. 

 

 

 

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

Each Way Tips – New Review

6th July 2023

We are starting a new trial today of a service called Each Way Tips from the Phil Rushton stable of tipsters.

This is a service that has been going since 2019 and in that time has made over 370 points profit

That has been achieved with a good strike rate of 40% and a solid return on investment (ROI) of 12%

As the name of the service suggests, all bets are each-way bets and are on UK and Irish racing. 

The staking is a simple one point each-way on each selection and there are just one or two bets per day on average, making it a straightforward service to follow. 

The tips are supplied by a guy called Pete Thompson who has been a professional tipster for over 3 years and has been betting on horses for 15 years.

His other betting service Racing Wins has been going for a number of years and has also produced decent profits. 

Pete focuses on finding value at prices of 4/1 and above and only selects a horse if he is sure it has a strong chance of winning or placing. 

We often say here at HBR that the crucial factor we look for in tipsters is their longevity – their ability to make a profit over an extended period of time – so it is good to see this service has been running for nearly four years now. 

Whether it can continue performing well we will find out in our trial but the signs are promising at least. 

We started receiving tips on 1st July so will record results from then. Progress will be updated here as we go along as usual.

In the meantime you can check out Each Way Tips for yourself here.

 

 

 

 

 

The Bookies Enemy – Five Year Update

Here at Honest Betting Reviews we like to continue monitoring services after our review has ended to ensure that they continue producing the results seen in our trial. 

So a full five years after our original review of The Bookies Enemy, it is high time for an update to see if they continue to warrant a PASSED rating from us. 

In our original review back in 2018 (please see below) the service made a highly commendable 104 points profit at a return on investment of 41%, a very successful trial. 

However, many services then fade away after a positive trial, failing to maintain their form and to continue to produce a profit. In fact most tipster services are discontinued within a year or two of launching. 

So first off it is noteworthy that The Bookie Enemy (run by a chap called Gary Poole) is still going at all five years after our original trial. There are very few services out there who manage to keep going that long. 

This is one of those rare tipsters that has stuck around for the long term however, with the service going back to 2008 in one form or another. 

Sticking around a long time doesn’t mean a lot in itself though if you aren’t also producing regular profit, but thankfully The Bookies Enemy has done that in spades! 

Since our original review ended in 2018, they have added a further 771 points profit, putting the total since we started proofing the service at 875 points profit

That would be £21,875 profit at £25 per point stakes or £8,750 profit at more modest £10 per point stakes. 

Those are phenomenal results and worthy of high praise indeed over such a long period. 

If we look at the graph here from January 2020 onwards, it has really been pretty much nothing but upward growth:

The long-term strike is 20% and the return on investment 15%, which are impressive metrics to have maintained over the course of six years. 

In terms of the more recent performance, that has also been stellar with 350 points profit made over the last year. 

Just this month for example they are already 33 points up, so the service is going as strong as ever.

It will be no surprise then to learn that we are not only happy to maintain our PASSED rating for The Bookies Enemy but to upgrade its rating from 4.5 to 5 stars.  

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We can’t stress enough how rare it is to find tipsters who stick around for the long term, let alone who actually produce high quality results year after year. 

The Bookies Enemy has proved itself to be one of those tipsters however, with a superb 771 points profit made since our original trial and 875 points profit made since we started proofing the service back in 2017.

That puts it in an elite category of tipsters and well worthy of a full five star rating from us. Top stuff.

The Bookies Enemy – Full Review

 

The Bookies’ Enemy is a horse racing tipster who has been around for a number of years, operating on their own website and on various tipster platforms.

They recently switched to the Betting Gods tipster platform and not long after that we commenced a three month trial of the service.

The Bookies’ Enemy has a strong reputation of having made very good profits for his followers each year and so we were looking forward to seeing how he would get on under the spotlight of a live trial here at Honest Betting Reviews.

So how did things turn out?

Well we are pleased to say that they turned out very well, with over 100 points profit made to advised prices.

That works out at more than a doubling of the bank in just three months, which is excellent going.

And the return on investment for our trial was a superb 41%, one of the best achieved during a trial for some time.

The strike rate was a little on the low side at 19%, as this is a service that relies on picking long-odds winners that represent strong value rather than backing favourites. So a degree of patience is advised when following the service.

As you can see from the graph below, we were in profit for pretty much the whole trial, punctuated by a big move upwards in the middle.

The Bookies Enemy Profit Graph

Whilst overall the results were fantastic, the one point to be aware of is that the Betfair SP results were quite a bit lower than the advised ones, with 32 points profit made in comparison to the 104 points profit made to advised prices.

So although that is still a good profit, to really get the best out of the Bookies’ Enemy you do want to have access to bookie accounts.

All in all however the trial has been a tremendous success and we are happy to award the Bookies’ Enemy a PASSED rating.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: Pretty straightforward service to follow with just a couple of bets per day on average sent the evening before racing, usually between 6pm and 8pm UK time.

Availability of prices: With such a popular and long-running service like this, inevitably there is downward pressure on prices and so you want to get your bets on as soon as possible after tips are sent out. As we say, there was a big difference between results at advised prices and Betfair SP. 

Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 19%, which is pretty much spot on the long term average. 

Advised Betting Bank: A 100 point bank is advised for following the service, which should be ok given the average staking is 1.2 points per bet, but to be on the safe side you may want to consider using a 150 point bank.  

Subscription costs: The costs to sign up are £1 for the first 10 days then £40 per month, £80 per quarter or £240 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED

We often say here at Honest Betting Reviews that one of the most important factors when looking at a tipster is their long-term record. The longer they have been able to produce a consistent profit, the better.

Well the Bookies’ Enemy has been producing profit for a number of years and has continued to do so since switching to the Betting Gods platform.

Under the spotlight of a live trial the service also performed admirably, racking up over 100 points profit in just three months, which would be over £1,000 to just £10 stakes. 

With a return on investment of over 40%, this is one of the best trials we have seen for some time and it is a definite PASSED rating from us. 

The only thing to be aware of is that the results at Betfair SP were quite a bit lower than the advised prices, so you really want to have access to bookie accounts to get the most out of the service.

But all in all it has been impressive stuff from the Bookies’ Enemy and this is one we will be adding to our portfolio for the long-term.

The Bookies Enemy – Results Update

27th January 2018

The Bookies Enemy has been living up to his name lately, smashing in lots of big-priced winners.

He has made a very tasty 44 points profit at advised prices since our last update, putting him on 103 points profit for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP he is somewhat behind the advised price results, although still doing very well, with 34 points profit made since our last update and 49 points profit overall.

This is looking like another top service for the Betting Gods platform alongside some of their other high quality horse racing tipsters.

The Bookies Enemy – Results Update

5th January 2018

A small retrace for The Bookies Enemy since our last update, with 14 points lost at advised prices.

That means we are now 59 points up for the trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

Quite a significant gap is opening up between the advised prices and Betfair SP results, as we are now just 15 points up at Betfair SP for the trial overall after losing 24 points since our last update.

So it is questionable whether this is going to be profitable to follow the service at Betfair SP, time will tell on that front. 

Overall though the trial is still going very well so can’t have too many complaints thus far.

At Betfair SP a good profit has also been made, although not quite as much as at advised prices, with 39 points profit made so far in our trial. 

The Bookies Enemy has a big reputation behind him and it’s good to see he is living up to that so far. 

Back soon with more updates.

The Bookies Enemy – New Review

29th November 2017

Form is temporary, class is permanent. 

So the saying goes. It may be a cliche we hear often in the sporting world, but it applies just as much in the tipping world too.

And it certainly applies to the next tipster we will be reviewing here at Honest Betting Reviews.

This tipster has been around for some time and has built a reputation as one of the most respected names in the business.

He has regularly made over 100 points profit per year and is famous for landing betting coups at long odds.

Who are we talking about?

It is none other than The Bookies’ Enemy of course, a horse racing tipster who has recently signed up for the Betting Gods stable.

It is quite a coup for Betting Gods as well, as the Bookie’s Enemy comes with a strong betting record and following behind him. 

He has offered his tips through a number of sources previously, including social media, his own website and another tipster platform. He has been known as “Bookies’ Enemy Number One” formerly, but now it is just the Bookies’s Enemy.

But hopefully now he has found his rightful home at Betting Gods who should provide the kind of stability for him to really prosper.

The Bookies’ Enemy is in fact a chap called Gary Poole and as we say, he has been around for a number of years and has regularly racked up impressive profits in that time.

Since starting proofing to Betting Gods he has made a very impressive 270 points profit, which has worked out at an amazing £550 profit per month to just £10 stakes.

Those results have been achieved at a superb return on investment of 80%.

Retaining a return at that level will be nigh-on impossible in the long run, but regular profits should be very possible and indeed have been Gary’s staple.

His strike rate has averaged around the 22% so far and as we say, his specialism is going for horses at long odds of 25/1, 33/1 and even higher on occasion.

He has also been known to land a big-priced acca or two, so watch out for those if you are a follower of the service.

All in all then this is a serious tipster and one we are looking forward to testing out. 

We started receiving tips on 17th November so we will record results from then onwards. We are pleased to report we are off to a flying start as well. 

As usual, results will be updated here regularly during the trial.

In the meantime you can check out The Bookies’ Enemy here.

 

 

 

 

Lay2Win – Final Update

UPDATE – Please note this service has been discontinued so our review is also terminated. 

Although the service had been going along okay and was in profit for our trial, on 25th May a message was sent out via Telegram saying: “Those that have paid this month will be refunded, all payments cancelled, and service terminated. Simply not reached the form he had and doesn’t warrant continuation.”

So another service bites the dust sadly. Been quite a few lately that have been discontinued before our trial has even finished. 

Just shows once again how hard the tipping game is and how few actually master it in the long run. Thankfully there are a few that do though!

Lay2Win – Results Update

20th May 2023

It’s been a mixed month for horse racing service Lay2Win recently, with a loss of 2 points made to advised prices since our last update.

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

You can view full results here.

However, it’s been a better month at Betfair SP, with a profit of 4 points made since our last update and 16 points profit made for our trial to date at BSP. 

So it looks like this service is actually better to follow at BSP than advised prices.

Just a reminder this is a laying service on the horses, normally providing up to one selection per day. 

The maximum lay price is 4.0, so taking the BSPs would mean quite a few of the selections have gone over 4.0 by the time of the race and would therefore be no bet.

The results at Betfair SP continue to outperform those at advised prices, with a profit of 1 point made since our last update and 12 points profit made for our trial to date.

That means they are now 4 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.  

You can view full results here.

The results at Betfair SP continue to slightly outperform those at advised prices, with a loss of 3 points made since our last update and 11 points profit made for our trial to date. 

Just a reminder this is a laying service on the horses, normally providing up to one selection per day. 

The maximum lay price is 4.0, so taking the BSPs would mean quite a few of the selections have gone to over 4.0 by the time of the race and would therefore be no bet.

The results at Betfair SP continue to slightly outperform those at advised prices, with a profit of 6 points made since our last update and 14 points profit made for our trial to date. 

Just a reminder this is a laying service on the horses, normally providing up to one selection per day. 

The maximum lay price is 4.0, so taking the BSPs would mean quite a few of the selections have gone to over 4.0 by the time of the race and would therefore be no bet.

There have now been 18 winning lays in a row, which is quite an effort considering the lay prices are under 4.0. Impressive stuff.

Lay2Win – Results Update

The results at Betfair SP continue to outperform those at advised prices, with a profit of 6 points made since our last update and 8 points profit made for our trial to date.

The maximum lay price is 4.0, so taking the BSPs would mean quite a few of the selections have gone to over 4.0 by the time of the race and would therefore be no bet.

So there have been fewer selections at BSP but a steadier profit so far.

Lay2Win – Results Update

8th November 2022

It’s been a slow start to our trial of horse racing service Lay2Win, with a loss of 6 points made so far to advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

The results at Betfair SP have been quite a bit better however, with a profit of 2 points made for our trial to date. 

Just a reminder this is a laying service on the horses, normally providing a maximum of one selection per day. 

The maximum lay price is 4.0, so taking the BSPs would mean quite a few of the selections have gone to over 4.0 by the time of the race and would therefore be no bet. One even drifted from a recommended price of 3.95 all the way out to 12.24! 

In any event, it’s far too early to draw any conclusions so far on advised prices vs BSP, especially as this is a very low volume service so we have only had 10 bets thus far. Will need to get a good deal more in the bank before we can make any judgements on that.

Lay2Win – New Review

7th October 2022

Sometimes we refer to the “London buses” scenario here at Honest Betting Reviews – you wait ages for one and then two come along at once.

Well that is the case this week for horse racing laying services. We’ve waited a while for any promising ones to review but this week we’ve got two! 

First up was The Lay Bet Tipster which we started a review of on Tuesday. And today we have Lay2Win – a horse racing laying service from the Punt Hub tipster platform. 

This is a service that has been going since January 2021 and according to the results on its website has amassed an impressive 86 points profit since starting up.

That has come with a very strong strike rate of 84% and an equally impressive return on investment (given the high strike rate) of 15%

Since they started, 16 out of 18 months have been profitable which is the kind of consistency we like to see. 

It’s a very selective service with usually just a few bets per week, so the workload looks to be pretty minimal with this one. 

The highest odds they lay at is 4.0, so that keeps the liability down on each bet. 

It looks quite interesting then and quite similar in terms of results to the Lay Bet Tipster. Which one will come out on top though? We’ll have to wait until the end of the trials to see!

Don’t worry though, you don’t have to wait that long to find out how this one is getting on – we will provide regular updates here as we go along.

In the meantime you can check out Lay2Win for yourself here – and use code HBR at checkout to get the first month for just £10

 

 

 

BSP Racing Tipster – Final Update

Please note this service has been discontinued due to disappointing results, so our review is terminated at this point.

BSP Racing Tipster – Results Update

10th April 2023

A step backwards again lately for the BSP Racing Tipster unfortunately, with 14 points lost since our last update.

That means they are now 80 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder that this is a service that only recommends bets at Betfair SP, so there are no separate results at BSP. 

It shows just how hard it is really to make a profit at Betfair SP and how those who do manage it deserve a lot of praise.

Things aren’t going to plan for the BSP Racing Tipster unfortunately, with another 29 points lost since our last update.

Just a reminder that this is a service that only recommends bets at Betfair SP, so there are no separate results at BSP. 

It’s been a rough old time for this service since our review started. The results looked very promising coming into our trial but sadly it may have hit the curse of the reviewer, as it has only gone one way since. A turnaround is needed quickly.

A small loss for horse racing service BSP Racing Tipster over the last month, with a loss of 7 points made since our last update.

That means they are now 34 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder that this is a service that only recommends bets at Betfair SP, so obviously there are no separate results for this one at BSP. 

A slow start to our trial for this service then, let’s see if they can get things moving in the right direction over the next month.

BSP Racing Tipster

3rd September 2022

It’s not been a great start to our trial of BSP Racing Tipster unfortunately, with a loss of 27 points made to date after just over a month.

You can view full results here.

Just a reminder that this is a service that only recommends bets at Betfair SP, so obviously there are no separate results for this one at BSP. 

It’s been a bit disappointing so far as there was a lot of excitement at the launch of the service around the idea of finding a service that’s profitable on Betfair, but it is very early days so far too early to draw any conclusions.

BSP Racing Tipster

30th July 2022

We are starting a new trial of a racing service called the BSP Racing Tipster. 

As you may have guessed from the name, this is a service that tips solely at Betfair SP. That means no worrying about whether you will obtain the advised prices or having bookie accounts restricted etc. 

We often refer to it as the “holy grail” of betting to find a tipster that is profitable at BSP. There are a few of them out there thankfully (see our list of top horse racing tipsters here for examples), but very few that are actually built around tipping at BSP.

That is where this tipster comes in and their record to date looks very promising. They have been proofing to Betting Gods for over a year, which is an extensive proofing period, and the total profit made to date stands at just under 200 points

The return on investment has been excellent at over 33% whilst the strike rate is pretty good too, also at 33%

Most of the bets are in the win market but there are a few in the place market as well. 

Out of 14 months so far, 13 have been profitable which is very impressive consistency. 

There is currently an offer to get the first month for just 99p, but we understand it is due to close very soon. 

In any event, we are looking forward to getting this trial underway as it is rare to find an opportunity like this of a tipster that is based around tipping at BSP.

As ever results will be updated here as we go along so you can see how they are getting on. 

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