My name is Colin and am going to be reviewing the Greyhound Master Tipster service provided by Betfan.

I am now in my dotage and have been following racing since about 10 years old, when I used to visit the London area Racecourses, Kempton , Epsom, Sandown etc  with my best friend and neighbour, who’s father was an on course bookmaker.

The favourite trips were to White City for Greyhound Racing to which we used to cycle from home in Southall.

Those were the days.

I have been interested in racing since then and spent some thousands of hours studying statistics which is the real attraction for me these days

The service under review is operated by Kevin Dear who lists a similar background to me although exclusively Greyhounds.

The service costs £40 per month with a first month introductory offer of £30

Results are shown from Summer last year when it went along at around break even then took off in August since when, to the end of June it has amassed over 300 points from a low level of activity – not a reliance of thousands of bets

July so far shows a very small – insignificant- loss, but there has been few bets.

Greyhound racing is difficult to “crack”

Kevin as a rule punts only on Open Races, missing out graded races – which the Bags races in particular are really for the Bookmakers benefit – on the basis that the quality of the animal, training methods and race selection gives a consistency of result – akin I suppose, to following only listed races on the horses.

Tips are sent by e-mail and also available on the daily information site, and reasons for the selection given, with a suggested points stake. There are ante post selections and also multiples.

I will record the results daily – but be warned there are no- bet days as Kevin does not bet for the sake of it as profit is the key, not volume,  recording them to advised stakes.

I will also keep a record of level stake betting as an aside and periodically show the result.

Tomorrow I will post the results from July 1st.
