Strike Rate Racing – Full Review
Strike Rate Racing is a horse racing tipster that claims to have made its members over £50,000 per year from its racing tips.
They provide four tips per day, Monday to Friday, at around the 11/8 – 4/1 mark. Tips are sent by e-mail early in the morning on the day of racing. All bets are one point win bets.
The idea is that by tipping at relatively short odds they aim to be able to maintain a decent strike rate and keep the bank ticking along.
Anyway, we followed the service for three months and in that time proofed just over 250 bets, which is a reasonable sample size.
At the end of our trial they finished with a small loss of 17 points at advised prices, which represented less than a fifth of the betting bank.
The strike rate was pretty decent at 30%, so just under a third of the tips were winners.
The interesting thing with this trial was that the Betfair SP results actually turned out better than the results at advised prices, with a profit of 15 points made for our trial.
That’s quite unusual and will be a comfort to those who have had their bookie accounts restricted and were just following the service on Betfair.
At the end of the day, as the service made a small loss at advised prices but a small profit at BSP, we think a NEUTRAL rating is fair on balance.
The one thing we did note however is that in addition to receiving the tips, we did receive quite a bit of spam e-mails advertising other tipping services, most of which looked dubious at best. Ideally that’s something we prefer not to see – just the tips would be nice. The occasional e-mail about another service is okay but to have it regularly is a bit much.
Ease of use: The tips are sent by e-mail, normally very early in the morning on the day of racing. With around 4 bets per day on average it’s not too onerous to follow and there are no bets at weekends.
Availability of prices: We didn’t really see any pressure on prices and in fact the BSP results were actually better than the advised prices.
Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 30%, which is round about what we expect given the odds tipped at.
Advised Betting Bank: There was no betting bank advised but we used a 100 point betting bank for our trial was adequate for our purposes.
Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are £30 per month or £100 per year.
OVERALL VERDICT: NEUTRAL
Strike Rate Racing is a simple horse race tipping service that sends out four tips per day, Monday to Friday.
After a three month trial and over 250 bets, they finished with a loss of 17 points at advised prices but a profit of 15 points at Betfair SP.
On balance then we feel a NEUTRAL rating is warranted in this instance.
Strike Rate Racing – Results Update
13th September 2021
Still not much happening for horse racing tipster Strike Rate Racing, with just 2 points dropped at advised prices since our last update.
That means they are now 2 points down for our trial overall at advised prices.
Intriguingly they continue to do better at Betfair SP so far than at advised prices, with another 13 points profit made since our last update and 26 points profit made for our trial overall at BSP.
In case you were wondering after looking at the results sheet, they don’t tip at weekends so that explains the gap in dates.
It’s pretty low workload during the week in any event, with just four tips normally – all backed win only.
Strike Rate Racing – Results Update
9th August 2021
It’s been a quiet start to our trial of Strike Rate Racing so far, as they are even at advised prices after three weeks.
They have actually done better at Betfair SP so far than at advised prices, as they sit 13 points up for our trial to date at BSP.
Just a reminder that this is a straightforward tipping service with four tips sent on weekdays early in the morning. The odds tend to be fairly short, hence the name in terms of looking for a high strike rate of winners.
Early days but solid enough so far.
Strike Rate Racing – New Review
19th July 2021
Today we are starting a new review of a service called Strike Rate Racing.
This is a service that a few of our members asked us to take a look at so we thought we would give it a go. It claims to have made its members over £50,000 per year from its racing tips. There is no breakdown of what staking this was based on though, or ROI etc.
There is a screenshot on their website of a William Hill account with over £52,800 in it, although we would point out that this doesn’t mean much in itself. Things like that can easily be fabricated, or they could have just deposited those funds rather than having won them. We would also have thought profits would be spread around different bookies rather than concentrated in just one.
Anyway, leaving this aside, they claim to be “a team of highly experienced professional horse racing tipsters who make ourselves a financial income and luxurious lifestyle through horse race betting.”
They say they come from a variety of backgrounds including accounting, bookmaking, computer science and racehorse training.
In terms of their approach to selecting the tips, they say they study “odds, form, jockey and trainer combinations, weather patterns” and anything else that can give them an edge. There isn’t much reference to where the idea of a high strike comes in to it though.
There are also no published results on the website, which is a little worrying. Usually we would look for full results to back up the claims of profits a service makes.
In any event, we will reserve judgement until we have conducted our review and can see what kind of results they can produce under a live trial. As usual we will update things here as we go along.
