The 13-week trial of Each Way Tips as come to an end. As the name suggests this service provides each-way bet selections and costs £14.95 per month or £180 per year, although as I write this there’s a special offer running.
Simple enough to operate, you get an email with 2 to 3 selections in it and you place the bets. You can use bookmakers or an exchange. There are no selections on Sundays or Mondays.
As every bet will be each-way we are going to need a high strike rate. The website boasts 43%, I got nowhere near this; just 35 “wins” (where the bet made a profit) in 139 bets is 25%, this would be poor for a win only service, for each way, where the returns are lower, it is very poor. However, the service was tootling along with some profit but the final 2 weeks (2 wins in 22 bets) turned that profit in to a loss. I ended 16.4 points down, a loss of £164 to our standard £10 per point. Betfair faired better, even after 2% commission deducted and returned a profit of 9.51 points, or £95.
The losses are well within the ability of a few wins to turn things around, so I’ll categorise this as neutral.
|Sadly, another poor week to end the trial.|
Week 13: Bets 12, Wins 1, Profit -16.3 (£-163.00), , BSP -14.53 (£-145.32)
Overall: Bets 139, Wins 35, Profit -16.4 (£-164.00), , BSP 9.51 (£95.12)
Just a quick note to let you know that there is another new video on Carl’s video teaching page.
This time Carl looks at runners taking the long way around the bends and how much it costs them in lost places.
Carl also tips in every race broadcast on ITV and has an excellent record with his ITV tips as can be seen in the chart below.
I’m not sure why this system is called Hidden Winners. Going through the videos provided on the website, the vendor shows us how he goes about picking his selections according to form using the excellent Geegeez form website. For maiden races and those with little form, again, he looks down the obvious roads of trainer comments and market moves. I wouldn’t consider these avenues as hidden. You would expect winners that are hidden to be runners which have aspects about them in today’s race which are likely to elude market makers.
This is not a method of form reading whereby you’re necessarily likely to arrive at the same selections as vendor Michael, because everybody will spot different signs with different runners. In reviewing this service, therefore, I will treat it as a tipster service with added extras, rather than a system as alluded to when we launched this earlier this month.
There is some discussion on the website about staking, and how different bettor types should bet within their comfort zones. He has produced results based on 2 points win for odds of 7.0 and below, and 1 point each way for higher odds. These are based on 10am prices as available on Oddschecker.
There are two sets of (unverified) results on the website going back to October 2019, and these look very interesting. 424 points profit to BSP, and 538 points for early prices, to the 2pt win/1pt ew system. The second system is simply 1 pt win all bets, showing +300 points for early prices and 237 points to BSP. These win only results are better than the each way option, if you double the stake so it is equivalent.
I have been monitoring the bets since the beginning of the month. Using 1 point win stakes or half each way, I have recorded 19 points profit at early prices, and 26 points profit at BSP. I haven’t recorded the early prices for BOG bookies but it will be better than the 19 points. I am very impressed with this return, but like the pre-trial results, I have found that single win bets are even more profitable, showing a very impressive 41 point profit to BSP.
Based on pre-trial and my own monitoring since the start of this month, I reckon this service deserves your attention, and my recommendation is that you bet to one point win only stakes.

It’s time for another update on this service, given that it has been relaunched yet again. Since my initial review of this in 2018, it has seen more changes than the government’s pandemic strategy, but I believe it is finally settled now, having metamorphosed into a hands off series of betting investment systems on horse racing in the UK.
The portal for these four systems is Cloud Bet Bot, a third party service that provides automated cloud betting solutions for tipsters and service providers, it is a free service for clients following services that use the platform. Only one account is required to follow multiple independent services and systems.
Once the service provider has authorised your access; you login, go to the service providers ‘bot page’, set your stake and activate it – that’s it. You can change your stake or stop the bot placing the bets at any time. You don’t need to keep the web page open, the cloud engines order the bets for you.
Services utilising Cloud Bet Bot are not rated, ranked or in a league, are not cross promoted, have no adverts on bot pages. Its a simple ‘set and forget’ platform to alleviate having to manually order bets that tipsters send you.
Bets are placed via the bot on the Betfair exchange, and there is some flexibility as to timing of placement. What’s really neat about the Exponential suite is the various options of choosing your own risk liability.
The four strategies are:
This bets on race favourites using filters determined over the past few years, most recently using live rather than back fitted results, which, as anyone who has been following any of the many systems which adopt this latter tactic, know it to be fraught with instability. The same is true for all of the strategies.
The low risk profit prediction over the next year using recent live results is 120 points. Medium risk is estimated at 200 points. High risk, 220 points. The cost of signing up to Sure Favs is £29.99 monthly, £62.98 quarterly (saving 30%), £116.96 six monthly (saving 35%), £215.93 annually (saving 53%).
This looks for value bets, again using filters developed and tweaked during live results.
The low risk profit prediction over the next year using recent live results is 200 points. Medium risk is estimated at 300 points. High risk, 500 points. The cost of signing up to Bet Advantage is £29.99 monthly, £62.98 quarterly (saving 30%), £116.96 six monthly (saving 35%), £215.93 annually (saving 53%).
Again, this is a strategy developed and tweaked over the past couple of years adjusting filters to live results going forward.
You can choose between standard (main) risk, or high risk, and also between fixed liability or fixed stake, the latter risking much higher liability but reaping much higher rewards. The cost of signing up to Racing Lays is £29.99 monthly, £62.98 quarterly (saving 30%), £116.96 six monthly (saving 35%), £215.93 annually (saving 53%).
This service started out as a back dutching system until Betfair decided to move the goalposts with Betfair Multiples, and has metamorphosed into a lay dutching system which is essentially the same thing. As with Racing Lays, you can choose between standard (main) risk, or high risk, and also between fixed liability or fixed stake, the latter risking much higher liability but reaping much higher rewards. The cost of signing up to Lay Dutching is £29.99 monthly, £62.98 quarterly (saving 30%), £116.96 six monthly (saving 35%), £215.93 annually (saving 53%).
Or, you can sign up for all four services which includes Sure Favs, Bet Advantage, Racing Lays, Lay Dutching, and The Trading Service once available, with all future releases added automatically. Monthly is £49.99 (saving 58.33% on joining all 4), £126 quarterly (saving £64.99%) or an annual subscription at £399.99 (72.21%).
I would strongly recommend that subscribers should go and look at the actual results which are available on the website rather than blindly looking at estimated profits. Ryan, who runs the service, is very loquacious and articulate, and he has gone to great pains to discourage anyone from signing up if they don’t understand the peaks and troughs necessary to go on this journey. Now that these systems are settled, I am very keen to see how the results pan out over the next year and onwards. If the predicted profits materialise, those membership fees are going to look a snip.
|4 wins from 23 is a slightly low strike rate, but we didn’t lose much.|
Week 23: Bets 23, Wins 4, Profit -1.96 (£-19.60), , BSP -2.93 (£-29.32)
Overall: Bets 23, Wins 4, Profit -1.96 (£-19.60), , BSP -2.93 (£-29.32)
Going to start a trial on this horse race tipster, and it comes with a twist as the selections are for races across the pond.
Emails are expected at breakfast time, which is around midnight Eastern time, and from first glance they are expected Wednesday to Sunday. They contain the selections, a stake plan, target odds and recommended bookies. There is also a writeup to justify the selection.
There is no recommended bank so I will start with 150 points and a bank of £1,000.
Results will be recorded using the advised prices in the email and Betfair SP less 2% commission on winnings. Unsure whether BOG applies to US racing, but even if it does I don’t adjust prices for BOG as it is a bookmakers perk. Where Betfair do not offer the course, I will mix in the bookmaker returns to the Btefair results.
|With no wins at all, this service could not have started any worse. Fingers-crossed for better weeks to come.|
Week 7: Bets 7, Wins 0, Profit -7 (£-70.00), , BSP -7 (£-70.00)
Overall: Bets 7, Wins 0, Profit -7 (£-70.00), , BSP -7 (£-70.00)
I am also going to have a look at The Horse Conqueror, a horse racing tipster
Selections are sent by email around tea time (because I am a Northerner, dinner time if you must) and contain the selections, stake plan, and recommended bookmakers.
I will record results using the advised process, but I don’t apply BOG. I will also record to BSP with 2% commission deducted, however I have little hope that this service will work on the exchanges due to the early nature of the emails.
No bank is recommended so I will start with a 100-point bank and £1,000 to start with the £10 per point standard.
|Note the best of starts with 1 win in 14 bets. |
Week 14: Bets 14, Wins 1, Profit -11 (£-110.00), , BSP -15.06 (£-150.59)
Overall: Bets 14, Wins 1, Profit -11 (£-110.00), , BSP -15.06 (£-150.59)
Back to the horses with this tipster.
Emails are expected mid-evening to catch the early bird prices, so I doubt this service will lend itself to Betfair. I will record results to BSP, with 2% commission deducted) anyway, just in case, as well as the advised price. Note that I do not adjust for BOG as this is a bookie perk.
The email contains the staking plan and some suggested bookies as well as a write-up justifying the selection, so all you need do is place the bets as soon as the email arrives.
As a 300-point bank is advised I will start with a £3,000 bank to get to the £10 per point standard.
This tipster provides selections on both golf and tennis. I am a big fan of golf betting because although you don’t land winners every week, the prices when they do win are brilliant. So I am looking forward to this service. I know very little about tennis, but then, I don’t need too!
Selections are received by email around breakfast time for the tennis and mid-evening for the golf, and contain the selections, staking plan and recommended bookies. I’ll record results using the advised prices in the email and using Betfair (minus 2% commission) where possible. If there are many doubles and other accas then I can’t use Betfair and the Betfair results here will be the returns from the bookmakers.
There isn’t a recommended bank, so I am going to plump for 100-points and therefore a £1,000 starting bank.
