Paul Gargan Racing is a horse racing tipster by alleged long standing tipster, the eponymous Paul Gargan.
What does the product offer?
As far as tipster services go, I would say that Paul Gargan Racing is a rather typical example of things. The whole thing is provided on a near daily basis with emails offered by email (apparently for free) or you can also receive them via SMS for a small premium.
There can be anywhere from no bets to as many as 5 each day with Paul Gargan Racing, and to compound things, you can bet singles as well as doubles and even accumulators in order to boost your profits.
These usually come with massive odds, something that Paul Green takes great relish in sharing through his various social media accounts. Unfortunately, there is very little in the way of numbers which means analysing a staking plan as well as looking at details like a strike rate (not that there is any proofing to back things up anyway).
How does the product work?
Given Paul Gargan’s supposed time working in horse racing, it is only to be expected that somebody have their own team of contacts and informants.
Paul Gargan Racing says that having these contacts is absolutely necessary to making his selections. Unfortunately, this relationship isn’t something that is explored in any meaningful way and so we are left to make some assumptions. It means that whilst the sales material for Paul Gargan Racing does talk about comparison between various selections, we are left without anything concrete.
What is the initial investment?
Technically speaking Paul Gargan Racing is free and there is never any mention of any charges.
That having been said, whilst I was investigating the service, I have noticed that there are a number of promotions for certain events and bets. For example, there is a tweet from Paul Gargan Racing which mentions people paying £32 for a 17,100/1 accumulator. There is also a more recent example with selections for Newport costing a rather steep £89.
When you consider that this is reduced from a supposed cost of £330 (allegedly what Paul Gargan usually charges) it becomes apparent that there may be hidden costs.
What is the rate of return?
Unfortunately, there aren’t any claims in terms of how much users can expect to make. As mentioned, there is no proofing to back this up either.
In many regards, Paul Gargan Racing is an unknown quantity and the man behind the service certainly doesn’t go out of his way to advertise himself.
With that having been said, it is a free service and this alone warrants some attention as there are increasingly few reputable free tipsters out there. Yes, there are going to be the occasional paid bet and it is entirely up to you whether or not you take them (as it stands, I don’t think that I would).
With Paul Gargan Racing, I think ultimately, I’d be looking to follow it. There is some potential there from what I have seen and it costs nothing but a few minutes a day to monitor the service and decide if it is for you.
