Racing Exchange is horse betting service which is part of the very reliable Tipster Street stable. I was interested in testing the service mainly due to the high number of points gained (nearly 3000) since January 2017 when the service started. I followed them over a 3-month period, and here are the results:
Overall: Selections: 902; Winners: 238; Points: -27.4; at £10 per point: – £274.40
Unfortunately, Racing Exchange hit a very lean period during the trial, at one stage going 82 points (£820 at £10 per point) down. I was putting small bets on myself at this stage but got cold feet. On some days there were up to 26 bets a day- although far less recently- which to me is an awful lot. Another issue is that If you subscribe to this service you must be prepared for some long losing runs (17,14,11,15,16), although there was a change in strategy halfway through the trial which resulted in more winners at lower odds. All of this will test your resolve. After some extraordinary gains in the first year, it’s fair to say that the service has plateaued since last June. However, since the trial stopped there has been an improvement and the losses registered above have been more than regained. Could it be about to take off again?
In conclusion, looking at past results as well as the trial, this is a good, reliable service which will more than likely be very profitable in the long run, but you will need strong nerves and will have to be prepared for some potentially tough times. It seems to be one of those services where it is so important to get off to a good start. I will classify it as neutral for now, but I will keep an eye on future results and report back in 3 months.
