Value at the Races is a horse-racing backing service providing win and each way tips. These tips are believed to be over-priced horses in morning markets that go on to win or place at inflated odds. The over-price provides the value.
A 500 point starting bank is recommended. Advice on how many points to stake on each bet is provided. Usual bets will be 10 points win bets or 5 points each way bets. On an average day, 1 to 5 different bets are given.
Bets take about 5 mins to place. About another 5 mins to document. I will be using oddschecker to get the best odds available and best odds guaranteed where possible.
Tips usually arrive between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. each day. Tips are also available on a web-site.
Joining Value at the Races is currently priced at £40 a month. The gentleman providing the service calls himself Ed.
Looking at the Winning Information Network Proofing Site: the service overall is in profit +737.4 pts since proofing began on October 31st 2011. However during the last 90 days of this trial, this service has lost 129.0 pts (25.8% of its starting bank of 500 pts) with two out of three losing months.
