Today we are looking at a new racing service called Racing Intelligence and we have to say we are more than intrigued by its proposition.
Whilst regular readers will know we are generally sceptical of tipsters claiming they have special access to “inside info,” this one comes with an interesting twist on that idea – and has the results to back it up.
Normally we dismiss talk of “inside info” because frankly despite having seen dozens of tipsters claim they have access to it, we are yet to see a single one of those tipsters actually deliver a long-term profit. In short most of it is just marketing BS.
Those tipsters who do make a consistent profit – like Quentin Franks, the Bet Alchemist and so on – do so due to hours of hard work and diligence in how they study races and form.
In the case of this tipster however, the “inside info” they claim to use is a little different – it is actually the bookies’ inside info.
So rather than looking to gather information from stables, trainers and so on, they are apparently able to gather intell directly from inside a bookie, as they work for one.
Inside this bookie they see the winning accounts of their elite customers and which bets those customers are placing – referred to as “markers” in the industry – and then pass on those bets to subscribers to place themselves.
The results of the service – which have been proofed elsewhere – are absolutely top-notch and suggest this approach is highly effective.
Since starting up two years ago they have made a superb 672 points profit at general bookies’ prices if betting each-way and an incredible 933 points profit if betting win-only.
Those have been achieved with returns on investment of 24% and 34% respectively, which is top-class stuff.
In addition they have demonstrated a remarkable level of consistency, with 19 of their 24 months so far having been profitable.
The really good news though is that the service is even profitable at Betfair SP, with a profit of 364 points made betting win and place on the exchange and 571 points if betting win-only at BSP.
Those are the some of the best BSP results we have seen and if they can be repeated during a live trial will mean this service may well achieve the “holy-grail” of being able to generate a substantial profit at Betfair.
That remains to be seen of course so we will reserve our judgement until we have seen the service in action and what kind of results it achieves.
So we will run a standard three-month trial and will report back soon on how things are going.
