Revolution Racing – Full Review
Revolution Racing is a horse racing tipster from The Better Punter stable which is based down in Australia.
The Revolution Racing service provides tips in UK and Irish racing and is one of the premier tipsters on the platform.
This was a slightly difficult review to give a final verdict on as although the advised price results finished pretty much break even – with just one point profit in the end – the Betfair SP results finished with a profit of 68 points.
That is very unusual and whilst we always base our official results on the advised prices, it made us consider awarding this a passed rating.
Here are the results at BSP in graph form:
As you can see, after a difficult start it made nice progress moving well into profit by the end.
However, we have slight reservations in awarding this a passed rating as we don’t know whether the improved BSP results would be maintained in the long run and a large part of the difference between the two sets of results was from one winner, which made up 30 points difference.
The other thing to bear in mind is that with an average stake of 3 points per bet, the 68 points profit would equate to around 23 points profit at one point level stakes.
So all in all we feel like a NEUTRAL rating is fair in this instance, but with a proviso that if the strong BSP could be maintained in the long run this could be worth an upgrade to a passed rating.
Ease of use: A pretty easy service to follow with just one or two bets per day, usually sent in the morning of racing at around 10-11am.
Availability of prices: We didn’t experience any problems getting the advised prices and as discussed above, the Betfair SP results for our trial were actually better than the advised prices.
Strike rate: The strike rate during the trial was 35% (including placed horses), which is pretty decent for a horse racing service and meant a fairly steady flow of returns.
Advised Betting Bank: Although a bank wasn’t advised for following the service, we think a 300 point bank would be appropriate given the average stake of 3 points per bet.
Subscription costs: The service works on a pay-as-you-profit model and is quite complicated but in essence you end up paying a proportion of your winnings to The Better Punter as you go along.
OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL
Our trial of Revolution Racing was quite an unusual one in that it produced better results at Betfair SP than it did at advised prices.
As we base our reviews on results achieved at advised prices, this would normally be a fairly straightforward NEUTRAL rating, as it finished with just one point profit at the end of our three month trial.
However, we feel it would be remiss not to recognise the 68 points profit made at Betfair SP, which is a decent return.
Whether that was just an anomaly though or can be maintained in the long run remains to be seen, but if it can this could well be worthy of an upgrade. Certainly a service that is profitable at BSP is a much sought-after commodity so it is worth keeping an eye on.
Revolution Racing – Results Update
27th November 2018
It’s been an impressive turnaround for Revolution Racing since our last update a month ago.
Back then they were 33 points down for our trial at advised prices, but with a haul of 57 points profit over the last month they are now 24 points up for the trial overall at advised prices.
What is even more notable however is that the results at Betfair SP are actually beating those at advised prices, with 78 points profit made since our last update and 57 points profit made for the trial overall.
Good to see the recent turnaround and let’s hope it continues for them.
Revolution Racing – Results Update
24th October 2018
It’s not been a great start to our trial of Revolution Racing unfortunately, with a loss of 34 points made so far to advised prices after one month of following the tips.
It’s not quite as bad however at Betfair SP, with a loss of 21 points made for our trial to date.
The one bright spot is that there has been an improvement over the last week or so, with over 25 points profit made, so hopefully that is the sign of a recovery.
We will find out if that proves to be the case when we provide our next update on the service.
Revolution Racing – New Review
4th October 2018
Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing tipster from a tipster stable out of Australia called the Better Punter.
Whilst the tipster platform is Australian, the tipster in question actually concentrates on UK and Irish racing and they are called Revolution Racing.
The results published on their website look very encouraging, with over $32,000 profit made to $100 unit stakes.
That has been achieved with a healthy strike rate of 36% and a very respectable return on investment of 17%.
The profit graph looks highly impressive too, with nice solid movement upwards pretty much throughout:
Tips are provided by a chap called Stephen who uses a detailed ratings system along with a cleverly devised staking method to guide his selections.
The idea is to combine value, a solid strike rate & ROI with a discipline staking system and you have a well oiled machine that can put bookies to the wall year in year out.
That’s the theory anyway, but will it hold up under scrutiny?
Well that is what we are here to find out, so we will be undertaking a three month trial to see if they can deliver.
They have an interesting payment method for the tips, which are “pay as you win” rather than a monthly fee. So you only pay if you profit. Commission is 30% of your profit per week, that is all. If you don’t win, you don’t pay.
That sounds fair enough to us and we’re surprised in some ways that other services don’t follow such a model.
Some people prefer the pay as you win model and some prefer the monthly/quarterly subscription, it is down to your own personal choice really.
Anyway, just to note that we actually started receiving the tips on 22nd September so will record results from then onward.
You can check back here regularly for updates on how things are going.
