The Snout – Full Review


The Snout is the second horse racing tipster we have reviewed from the Tipsters Empire stable of tipsters, after DG Tips which achieved a PASSED rating.

So did The Snout live up to the achievements of its stable partner DG Tips?

Well unfortunately during our three month trial it didn’t, finishing with a loss of 21 points at advised prices and 42 points at Betfair SP.

Here is the results graph for the trial:

The Snout Profit Graph

As you can see, it was quite an up and down time, eventually finishing quite a bit behind. 

That doesn’t quite tell the whole story however, as since our trial ended we have continued tracking the tips and they have actually turned things around quite remarkably.

Since our trial ended on 4th April, The Snout have added 39 points of profit, meaning that since we started proofing the tips at the start of the year, they have actually made 18 points of profit.

That isn’t bad going and although not quite enough in terms of bank growth to achieve a passed rating, it’s on the right track and warrants a NEUTRAL rating at this time, with a watching brief to see how things progress.


Service Breakdown

Ease of use:  There are 2.5 bets per day on average, which is certainly manageable in terms of workload. Bets are normally sent out in the evening before racing. 

Availability of prices:  A little like its stable partner DG Tips, the prices of The Snout’s tips do tend to contract before the off time, so getting the bets on early will help. At Betfair SP the results were twice as bad as at advised prices, so it is doubtful the service is practical to follow at Betfair SP. 

Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 21% (including placed horses), so a degree of patience will be required when following the tips.

Advised Betting Bank: No bank was advised upon joining the service, but we used a 75 point bank for the trial to give enough leeway to cover losing runs. 

Subscription costs: The subscription fees are £30/month, £75/quarter, £135/6 months or £250/year.



The Snout had a tough initial three month trial here at Honest Betting Reviews, finishing 21 points down at advised prices.

However, since the trial ended, they have had a cracking month, notching up 39 points of profit. 

So that means in effect they have made 18 points profit in four months of us following the tips.

That translates into bank growth of 24%, which isn’t quite enough to warrant a passed rating, but is still a solid return.

So we will keep an eye on things here and see if the form of the previous month continues. If so, The Snout may well be due an upgrade. 






The Snout – Results Update

22nd March 2017

Sadly the comeback for The Snout is over and things have gone in the other direction. 

Since our last update, they have lost 19 points at advised prices, putting them 17 points down for the trial overall.

At Betfair SP, things have been even tougher, with 18 points lost, putting them 41 points down for the trial overall.

Like it’s stablemate DG Tips then, it doesn’t look like The Snout is practical to follow at Betfair SP.

Back soon with more updates.






The Snout – Results Update

28th February 2017

The fightback continues for The Snout, at advised prices at least. 

Since our last update a couple of weeks ago, they have made 6 points profit at advised prices, meaning they are now 2 points up for the trial overall.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it is a different story however. They actually made a loss of 4 points since our last update, putting them 23 points down at Betfair SP for the trial as a whole. 

So on the basis of what we have seen so far, it doesn’t appear this service is practical to follow at Betfair SP. We will keep a close eye on this for the rest of the trial though to see if the trend continues.






The Snout – Results Update

At Betfair SP things continue to be a struggle however, with 8 points of profit made since our last update to put them 19 points down for the trial overall.

Back soon with more updates.





The Snout – Results Update

26th January 2017

It has been a tough start to our trial of horse racing tipster The Snout from the Tipsters Empire stable, who are 19 points down so far at advised prices after three weeks.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they are 27 points down, so not an ideal start by any means.

Like the other Tipsters Empire service we are reviewing, DG Tips, virtually all the bets are to 1 point stakes, which makes things straightforward.

Anyway, let’s hope we will have better news to report on The Snout by the time of our next update.





The Snout – New Review

12th January 2017

They say one good turn deserves another. 

So after commencing our first trial of a tipster from the Tipsters Empire stable a few days ago in the form of DG Tips, we thought we would follow it up quickly with a second. 

The tipster in question is (interestingly) called The Snout. We are not quite sure how he acquired that name The Snout, but apparently this lad was born and bred in the home of jumps racing, Cheltenham.

He specialises in many aspects of racing and has built up quite a following in his time as a tipster since June 2015.

The highlight of his tipping career came on 30th August 2016 when he landed a 5939/1 fourfold, including winners at 13/2 and 10/1.

Some members apparently had £5 e/w on, which netted them over £30,000!

Leaving that amazing feat aside, The Snout has amassed some impressive results overall, with over 250 points profit made in just 18 months.

That includes over 100 points profit over the last six months and five of those six months were profitable. 

So we have a promising horse racing tipster in the offing and are keen to get this trial underway.

Just a note that we started receiving tips on 5th January so we will record results from then.

We will update the trial at regular intervals with the results.

In the meantime you can check out The Snout at Tipsters Empire here.
