JPW Racing is a brand new horse racing tipster service that is operated by an independent tipster known only as James or JP.
What does the product offer?
The sales material for JPW Racing follows all of the tropes that you would expect from a tipster service that promises to make you a lot of money in a very small space of time. It is also not surprising that the marketing for this product has taken place around Christmas (I am writing this on the 27th of December). Naturally, I am cynical about the claims that are made, and as I will explore, rightly so.
In terms of what you are actually getting access to, it is billed as JP’s “Full Access VIP Service”. This is basically a fancy sounding name for the selections that are sent out. This means that despite some clever marketing trickery, JPW Racing is nothing more than a seemingly bog standard horse racing tipster service. This isn’t strictly true as there is seemingly a lot to JPW Racing with a massive variety of bets etc.
So, moving onto JPW Racing as a service, selections are issued to subscribers on a daily basis and these selections can be massively varied. Purely going off the mentions in the sales material, JP says that he offers win bets, lay bets, each way bets and even accumulators. If this isn’t enough to leave your head spinning, he also advises anywhere from one selection to as many as 12 per day to JPW Racing subscribers.
Keeping with the numbers theme, there is a staking plan in place for JPW Racing however it appears to be rather convoluted and confusing. For example, JP talks about how to calculate one point from your betting bank. This is all well and good however he then equates a point to a percent. Whilst some bettors would rather bet with a set percentage of their betting bank, there is a strong distinction between the two.
Unfortunately, JPW Racing doesn’t come with any proofing to clarify what the staking plan involves either. In spite of this lack of proofing, JP is more than happy to talk about the supposed strike rate for JPW Racing. At the time of writing, this supposedly stands at 28.78% however I am inclined to doubt this pending some kind of evidence.
How does the product work?
JPW Racing is essentially broken up into 3 different products, although reaslistically, they feel like they should all be a part of the same one. The first part of JPW Racing is referred to as “Daily Tips & Advice”. This is supposedly based on form analysis as well as advice JP supposedly gets “direct from the track”.
The second part of JPW Racing is the Festival Frenzy. This doesn’t actually appear to be any different to the Daily Tips & Advice service, with one exception. In fact, the only thing about Festival Frenzy is that it focuses on special events and horse racing festivals. I don’t see this as a bonus of any sort however as most tipster services already provide this information.
The Outsiders is the last part of the JPW Racing package which looks exclusively at horses with longer odds. JP says in the sales material for JPW Racing that all selections that are issued as part of The Outsiders are 20/1 and higher. Unfortunately, there is very little information on how these outsiders are actually selected.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing there is just one option if you wish to sign up for JPW Racing which is supposedly a special offer. This says that if you pay the cost of one month, you actually get access to JP’s selections for the next 12 months. This means paying £29.95 for a full year of selections, a seeming bargain. It is interesting to note that whilst JP doesn’t mention it anywhere, JPW Racing does come with a full 60 day money back guarantee as it is sold via the Clickbank programme.
What is the rate of return?
During 2016, JPW Racing has supposedly generated a profit of 837.33 points to industry starting price. The clear implication here is that you could have made substantially more profit than this by betting earlier and using BOG. It is also interesting to note that there is nothing to which staking plan this has been calculated based upon either. Personally I am massively inclined to take this result with a very healthy pinch of salt.
Put simply, it is the start of the New Year and as such, the dodgy tipster brigade have already wheeled out their newest offering. As I have mentioned several times throughout this look at JPW Racing, there is simply no proofing provided for the service. This means that for me at least, I instantly doubt everything that JP has to say about his service. Combine this with the fact that there simply isn’t any real evidence that it works, and you are onto a bit of a loser in my opinion.
The thing with JPW Racing is it hits almost all of the triggers that make me doubt the validity of a tipster service. There is no real evidence provided that the service works, and I include proofing in this. JP does very little to talk about horse racing or how he makes his selections (outside of a vague reference to form and inside information, both of which are rather sketchy claims).
With all of this in mind, I personally see very little about JPW Racing that is worth spending your money on. Yes, the service is cheap however I am of the opinion that it is too cheap to be true. I have looked at services before now that are unable to even come close to delivering what they claim and this kind of cheap entry point is a common recurrence. Whilst I wouldn’t like to say that that is what is happening in the case of JPW Racing, I find it hard to ignore the possibility.
With that in mind for anybody who is looking for a tipster service or a way to make a little extra money from betting, then JPW Racing is unlikely to be a genuine solution. The fact is that the service launched ust before Christmas from nowhere with no real evidence to demonstrate that it works, nor is there really any information on what the selection process is. This for me simply doesn’t make for a good product and I would be inclined to give JPW Racing a miss.
