I’m going to be reviewing The Syndicate tipping service for the next 3 months.

The Syndicate is a horse race tipping service that is a joint enterprise between specialists in both the Flat and the National Hunt versions of horse racing.

At the moment we are almost exclusively dealing with the flat racing, although you do have to check the National Hunt page on a Saturday and/or during any of the main Summer Jump meetings.

Selections are obtained via the members area of their webiste and are usually available from around 7pm the night before racing. If there are concerns about going, or the selections are going to be delayed for any reason, you can request to be advised via SMS text service. They do not send out the selections via text, just a message telling you when to log into the site to obtain the info.

The service costs £50 per month and is payable by credit card or bank direct debit system. At the moment, they are running a promotion that will allow you to get a refund of your first month’s subscription if you decide it’s not for you during the first 30 days of your membership.

Performance so far has been really quite encouraging. A bank of 75 points is advised and we got off to a great start, before slipping back a little with a run of horses finishing just outside the money. We’re about 3 points up at the moment from the start of the trial on 21/7/17.

Bets are a mix of win and each way bets and the prices quoted have been available at the time they were advised. Stakes are kept small and have not been any larger than 1 point, so far. We frequently have bets at a fraction of a point, so bank protection seems to be being treated as a priority, as it should be.
