Dark Horse Selections/Race Spy

FINAL UPDATEpiggy_bank_and_hammer

Well, this has now finished off the bank of 50 points and the losing run is up to 79.

Selections 101/ winners 2 / losers 90 / non runners 9

Profit/loss SP: -60 points

Profit/loss BSP – 5%: -51.6 points

Longest losing run: 79

So this obviously must go into the FAILED category.

The same source also produces Race Spy, and I have decided to abandon this one as well. Unfortunately, there have been some communication problems with the provider, and suspicions that emails are being used to bombard subscribers with other unwanted services. I have been recording Race Spy results for a month, and although they aren’t as bad as Dark Horse Selections, they do seem to be struggling. For each selected race you are provided with three selections: the main one, for a 2 point win; another win only for a 1 point win; and thirdly, an each way chance for one point win, one point place. I quite like the thinking behind it, but it didn’t really take off in that month.

All in all, there were 60 races recorded in the month. The BSP result ended with -15.88 points and the SP at -45.08.

It has to be said that we always try to look into the bona fides of service providers before taking them on, but this isn’t always possible as we are part of the bona fides. Nothing is more helpful than an independent, full and honest review, and that is what we at Cash Master aim to provide. I know we are all in a hurry to make some extra dosh, but in my not inconsiderable experience of following tipsters and services over the past 20 or so years, I can honestly say that I have never come across one where I regret not jumping on board immediately; though there are plenty where I wish I hadn’t done so. So the best advice is to let us do the number crunching and wait for the outcome.

Absolutely. Even when the a service looks like the best, or worst. ever after a few weeks, it is best to wait whilst we determine whether early performance, is short-term or a systemic problem. I have been a reviewer here for many years, not once has Graham applied pressure for me to change a review, so you do get our honest opinions. However, we usually have a good feel as to whether the provider/author is truly trying to provide a service, or, like this review, they appear to have other goals.

Once a system has been bought, I’d paper trade, or use very low stakes (in the order of pennies), up to a couple of days short of the clicbank return (60 days) or second renewal to make sure that I am happy with the product and that the performance we have observed has continued.

agree completely. Being a bit perverse it could be a good laying
system (if you can handle the odds ) But then it is promoted as a backing
one and must be judged on that.

I’m at -63 now and agree with Charles for the past week iv been lay-betting the selections as most of them drift out isp or price very close to betfair odds giving me a little risk strategy. but that’s not going to get my money back.I’ve around two weeks before I claim my money back and will continue til then

A losing run of 87 now and still he persists with this dross. Why doesn’t he just throw in the towel? Is it just me or does anyone else think it suspicious that this losing run is a staggering FIVE times as long as his claimed longest losing run during proofing?
