The Racing Professionals

This is a straightforward backing service where the tips are e-mailed through each morning and you back them on Betfair to BSP. The only stipulation is that the price is above 5.0.

The service runs during the seven months of the Flat season, April to October and subscriptions are taken as a one off payment for the whole season. You actually get a full 12 months, so if you subscribe in July, you would get the remainder of this season, and then front end of next season up to the anniversary of your subscription.

The service goes for high priced winners, so expect long losing runs and stake accordingly.

I normally bet £10 level stakes, but after a few services I’ve tested recently have taken a chunk out of my testing pot, I have decided to go for a modest £2 stakes on this test.

Which is unfortunate as I got a winner at 74!



Apparently the service does well in the place market too.

Claimed results for the last two seasons are 413 points for 2012 and 469 points for 2013, and so far this year 716 points.

Here’s my results for the last week betting £2 stakes:

Bets: 23
Successful: 1
Unsuccessful: 22
Strike Rate: 4.3%
Avg Odds: 74.05 (!)
Profit: £94.89

Winning Trends

Typical isn’t it? We got a nice winner at 10/1 with this service and for some reason I didn’t get the bet on. I can only assume I must have missed it when setting up the bot that morning. So I’ll add 10 points to the results at the end of the test to keep it fair.

The last month, including the winner I missed, has drawn about even.

Here’s the total stats:

Bets: 281
Successful: 52
Unsuccessful: 229
Strike Rate: 18.5
Avg Odds: 5.19
Profit: -£217.91

(Actual profit would be -£117.91 allowing for the 10/1 winner I missed)

Master Racing Tipster

Yay look who’s back! After what seems like ages with ailments too numerous to mention I’m happy to be back in the cash master fold doing reviews.

I’m kicking off with Master Racing Tipster from the Betting Gods stable. The selections, if there are any, are emailed the evening before in order to capitalise on the bookies early prices. I cannot say at the outset of this review whether the prices are advised in the email are actually available; so initially I will assume that they are. However, I will also record Betfair SP and will also try to note what prices are available at the time I notice that I have received the email.

The email contains staking advice and also points to the bookie with the best price. I cannot see any advice however on what percentage of your bank equates to 1 point. I am a firm believer that when backing you should risk no more than between 1% and 5% of your bank. The 38.78% strike rate advertised suggests one point should be in the region of 2.5%, so I will use this and a £1000 starting account.

I aim to update this blog after racing has completed every Sunday.

Eager to get started so let’s go!

The Laying Game

One month into this new test and the results have turned a bit.

The place lays have performed poorly, going into negative territory and the win lays have given back to the market too:

Win Market

Bets: 476
Successful: 374
Unsuccessful: 102
Strike Rate: 78.6
Avg Odds: 5.05
Profit: £143.48

Place Market

Bets: 255
Successful: 149
Unsuccessful: 106
Strike Rate: 58.4
Avg Odds: 2.62
Profit: -£86.91

Total Profit: £56.57

I’ve been chatting with another user of this system, and also fellow reviewer on this site, Guy who suggested including a reduction factor filter on the Bet Engine so that it doesn’t bet if there are significant non-runners. This sounds like a sensible option but I will continue with the test as is so we get an accurate reflection of the results using the method ‘as described’.

Bet Alchemist

We last did an update on this service in November 2013 so it’s time to see how it’s been performing since then.

First of all, 2013 ended with 116.49 points profit, with six profitable months and six losing months.

So far this year, 2014, we have had the following results:

Jan: -7.76
Feb: 4.76
Mar: 3.03
Apr: 7.47
May: 7.49
Jun: 4.76
Jul: 19.18

Total: 38.93 points

The total profit since the service went live in Decemeber 2012 now stands at 178.47 points, with 1007 bets, 174 winners and a strike rate of 17.28%.

There has only been one losing month so far this year, but last year still managed 116 points with six losing months!

Nicky who runs BetAlchemist has been in superb tipping form over the past few weeks with big priced winners like:

Mukhadram Won at 16/1
Velox Won at 11/2
Baccarat Won at 16/1
Telescope & Slade Power Double Won at ~15/1
Telescope Won at 5/2
Hartnall Won at 9/2
Guest of Honour Won at 4/1
Caspian Prince Won at 10/1
Kool Kompany won at 10/3
Our Man Zebo Won at 5/1
Top Boy Won at 14/1

Bet Alchemist advises bets to level stakes and each way to keep the betting bank safe and ticking along nicely northwards. Just look at the cumulative profit graph taken since the Bet Alchemist service went live in December 2012 below showing £8,499 profit from 169.98 points to £50 level stakes:


The return on investment is running at 15.58% and the strike rate of 17.19% (almost 1 winner in 5) is very good too considering this is a value price backing service seldom betting the first two in the market.

Here’s some key features:

• New Members Get First Month at Half Price (£15)
• The Next Month includes the 7 Day Galway Festival
• A Months Subscription includes the 5 Day Glorious Goodwood Festival
• Ascot (King George) & Curragh (Oaks) Meetings covered
• What value for just a Month’s subscription with all big races sorted
• Past Members £30 Per Month or £79 Per Quarter

Hi there,

Since our last review on 7th July we have lost a further 14.25 pts, the July figures are reading a very uncomfortable -24 pts for the month.

The revised bank now stands at £1455.90 so we are in negative territory since the start of this review in mid May which is a shame as I thought the service would’ve picked up at this time of the year with form etc settling down. I plan to run the review til the end of July which I think is long enough. We need to turn things around quickly!

Next update I plan to get up in a weeks time followed by the last one at the end of July.

Little Acorns

I last did an update on this neat little system in February 2013 with the following results:

2008 = +219.04
2009 = +191.68
2010 = +109.66
2011 = +134.92
2012 = +76.92

Total 5 years +749.63

Well the results for last year were no different:

2013 = 127.24 points

And every month so far this year has produced a profit, so far totalling 42 points.

This is a solid, stable betting system and one that I’ve used for years now. It makes a small but regular profit to level stakes with very small liabilities, but a much more impressive profit using the recommended staking plan.

It’s very simple to use, takes only a couple of minutes a day, and can be used in conjunction with the Bet Engine to fully automate the process if you so desire.

check out this recent testimonial:

“I have been enthusiastic about Little Acorns ever since I bought it! 

I started with a low Target and built this up to £100 per day! I do love the low liability of this laying system – Since January 4th I am showing a profit of £6074.25. This is not betting every day and when on holiday. I actually recorded the possible bets for 54 days from January 4th until June 12th, which averages £112.49 per day! I repeat, this was if I had used the system properly, if only I had!

My total winnings since April 1st 2010 is £32,084.75 starting with £30 Target. Increasing to £60 and then £100.”

A significant draw-down for BetHawk .  DPcm9 lost 173.18 pts over the monthly period: June 2nd to July 1st.  At the end of  July 1st,  it stood  at 794.23  pts.

My own DPcm9 system is  still performing  better than the official DP9 system that stood at 644.40  pts at the end of June 1st. Both my DPcm9 results and the official DP9 results quoted here are from live Betfair accounts. Note the DP9 portfolio was adjusted on 11th June, but that did not prevent a continuing slide downwards.

Operation of the BetHawk robot  (and also the VPS)  have remained flawless.

Here are the bets from DPcm9 for the fourth month of testing:
