2 Horse Race is a new to market horse racing tipsters service which is operated by Lee Bradfield. He seemingly has a solid approach to betting and some incredibly impressive profits.
Introduction to 2 Horse Race
A lot of people like to think that there’s some big shortcut to genuinely profitable betting. That you can just magic a new bet type or staking plan out of the blue and start bashing the bookies. As great as is it sounds, this sort of thing isn’t really all that typical of the betting experience. Don’t get me wrong, I know full well that you can make money through betting. A notion that is often questioned by non-bettors. And I always tell them it is possible. But it takes hard work, a solid approach and commitment to actually get into profit.
Because I am incredibly aware of this fact, I am always keen to look at services that have a basis in proven notions. Which is precisely why 2 Horse Race caught my eye. This is a service that, on the surface of things, seems to eschew the novel in pursuit of genuine and consistent long term profits. The holy grail of tipster services. And the way that Lee Bradfield talks about it, he has been a rousing success doing this. The profits that he says he has achieved are really quite spectacular, all whilst remaining believable.
At a glance, I was genuinely taken in by the sales pitch for 2 Horse Race. Even the fact that the service does lean on a less frequently used bet type wasn’t too off putting. Because, as I will come to later, the bet type makes some sense. However, sometimes in betting, we rely on a gut feeling. And whilst everything Lee Bradfield says on paper makes a lot of sense, something in my gut tells me that there is more to this than initially meets the eye. So with that said, let’s get into it and see what we are actually getting into.
What Does 2 Horse Race Offer?
Having pored over 2 Horse Race for some time, and doing a fair old amount of digging, I find myself in the position I often do of not quite knowing where to start. Which is quite an interesting and telling thing in and of itself because… Well, this is one of the most simplistic tipster services that I have ever seen.
Typically speaking, simple doesn’t have to be bad. There are plenty of very good quality betting services that are based around a simple premise that is simply executed well. And on paper, 2 Horse Race ticks that box. But it also ventures a bit into the grounds where this becomes a negative. Because more than anything else, what stands out about this is how incredibly focused on his approach Lee Bradfield is.
And here’s the thing. Literally all of that is down to the bet type that 2 Horse Race uses. In fact, it pretty much guides every element of the service in a very significant way. There are restrictions on profits, there are considerations for staking, even the logistics of the service are hugely informed by restrictions that the type of bets that are used.
Now, those of you who know about match bets may have already figured out what 2 Horse Race is about. It’s pretty obviously in the name. But the fact is that for a lot of people, what Lee Bradfield is doing here may seem like a revelation. Because the fact is that the bet type that is utilised here is ultimately quite niche. And that is a match bet.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this bet type (and I really don’t believe you cold be blamed for this), it effectively allows you to bet on the outcome of just two horses in a race. Hence the name. And whichever of those horses you back, as long as it beats the other horse, irrespective of its position in the race, your bet will win. There is little denying the appeal of this.
So how does this inform so much of 2 Horse Race exactly? Well, let’s start with the odds involved. Given that you are reducing the possible outcomes, it probably won’t come as a surprise to learn that most of Lee Bradfield’s bets have very low odds. Something that is very evident in the evidence provided where almost all of the bets are evens or lower. Very occasionally they will exceed this, but it is rare and by minute amounts.
It also impacts the volume of bets. Now, by and large, 2 Horse Race isn’t a particularly high volume service. You will generally see up to four bets on a given day. Where the bet type comes into play though is the fact that these can all hypothetically be on the same race. If Lee Bradfield believes that there is a horse in a race that simply doesn’t stand a chance, he will bet against it multiple times.
Then there is the logistics involved. Almost everything here is what you would expect from a tipster service of this nature. Selections are sent out to subscribers directly via email, however, they area sent out very late in the day. There are various reasons Lee Bradfield claims that this happens, but most of it has to do with the fact that match bets aren’t available until later in the day. Fortunately, it is recommended that all bets are placed through Paddy Power so there isn’t a lot of work involved shopping for odds etc.
And finally, I want to talk about the staking involved. I suppose that technically speaking, 2 Horse Race is a simple level staking plan. You could easily just bet 1 point per bet with this and that would be fine. However, the lower odds would mean a very limited income potential. As such, I think if I were going to follow 2 Horse Race I would probably want to look at some kind of compounding (which is what Lee Bradfield seems to have done).
Whilst we’re talking stakes and that side of things, I do want to mention the starting bank. It is recommended that you use a 50 point betting bank to get started. Honestly, this isn’t particularly expensive and given the low odds involved (and theoretically high chance of winning), it should more than suffice.
How Does 2 Horse Race Work?
Now, I’ll admit that so far 2 Horse Race as a service has presented a very compelling argument for buying into the idea that those bets are worthwhile. And in many respects, I don’t think that I necessarily disagree with him. I genuinely believe that there is some merit to leveraging those match bets under the right circumstances. And that is the key to it all really. Those right circumstances.
Which brings me to the single biggest issue that I have with 2 Horse Race. Whilst Lee Bradfield is (somewhat understandably) very keen to talk about how great his bet type is, all of the benefits that they bring, etc. What he doesn’t talk about at any point is explaining how he is able to find times where this is type of bet carries any real advantage.
In fact, there is almost nothing at all about the selection process, and if I’m honest, that does worry me slightly. Because even when it might seem blatantly obvious where you should be betting, without a strategy, it is just pure guesswork. And long term, there isn’t a whole lot of reason to believe that the guesswork that Lee Bradfield is seemingly employing with 2 Horse Race will actually work. Just a vague allusion that he looks at races not horses.
Combine all of that with some really quite limited evidence and proofing and I think that it demonstrates that there are some very obvious questions to ask here. Namely, just how consistent Lee Bradfield can actually be in that long term. Something particularly interesting given that 2 Horse Race is something that is theoretically easy to sustain with that guesswork.
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up to 2 Horse Race there is just one option available. For £30 (plus VAT), Lee Bradfield says that he will provide subscribers with full access to his selections for 3 months. This is seemingly a bargain with the actual claimed value of the service being £27 per month. A number that is only mentioned in passing in the sales material.
Something that rather unfortunately doesn’t get a mention in the sales material is the fact that 2 Horse Race comes with a money back guarantee. Specifically, it comes with a full 30 day money back guarantee. This is fully backed up by Clickbank who handle payment for the service. Which just makes Lee Bradfield’s failure to mention this all the more concerning in my mind.
What is the Rate of Return?
The key claim in terms of the income potential for 2 Horse Race is a simple one for me. In the headline, Lee Bradfield claims that 2 Horse Race has gone from £500 to £3,700 of profit. The thing with this is that it is very clearly based on compounding your stakes. Noticeably absent though is real context for all of this.
You see, all of the measurable results are based off £30 stakes. Despite that fact, Lee Bradfield claims that in 5 months 2 Horse Race has made 370 points of profit. That simply doesn’t sit right with me. And if I’m really honest, I find it to be a highly questionable set of results.
Conclusion for 2 Horse Race
Sometimes there are very obvious reasons not to recommend a tipster service. Other times, the reasoning is much more nuanced and it actually makes it seemingly rather difficult to justify your decision. When it comes to 2 Horse Race, it undoubtedly falls into that latter category in my mind. Because here’s the thing. I believe Lee Bradfield will show a profit for initial subscribers, but I don’t think I’d really recommend this. I know, bit contradictory right?
But this position isn’t one that I take lightly and without merit. Because there is actually quite a lot of very important elements of 2 Horse Race that aren’t addressed. Instead, there is a very clear focus on the idea that simply using a type of bet is a betting system in and of itself. Which I am of the opinion that it really isn’t.
The stuff that matters for anything resembling the long term is conspicuous in its absence. Information on the selection process? Not there. Actual proofing? Not there. Honestly, we don’t even really get an adequate explanation in my mind as to why the bet type that 2 Horse Race is built on is actually superior. Lee Bradfield talks about it is a if it should be clear to all. But all I really see is a service with some very apparent limitations on profit.
And for access to all of this we are asked just £30. Really not a significant amount coming from a genuine tipster service. But here’s the bottom line for me. I’m not entirely convinced that 2 Horse Race is all that genuine. Because whilst there are all these flaws within the service, and against a backdrop of “this is just a good idea because it’s a good idea”, there is a simple fact.
The vendor that is selling 2 Horse Race is one that is well known to me. They have a track record of this kind of product. What I mean by this is leveraging an interesting new idea and turning it into a full scale tipster service. Often with very little evidence that it will work, and no real explanation as to how it works. All hallmarks of what Lee Bradfield is doing here.
Really, the difference for me is that I can see this betting past the money back guarantee period because you might actually get some winners here. The odds definitely favour “Lee Bradfield” in that regard. So if there is actually some profit potential to 2 Horse Race why wouldn’t I be talking about it in a similar vein? Well, the shortest answer to this is that you can do what is happening here for free. Except, also better.
It isn’t hard to look at two horses on a completely fielded race and pick one who has a chance of winning and one who might not. Learn how to look at basic information and you strengthen your position even more. The core idea of 2 Horse Race is a believable one. And I don’t think it is fair to say that all of this is entirely without merit. But paying £30 for 3 months of selections? That is a bit off.
So, when you bring together that lack of knowledge, evidence, and the questionable back end stuff… Well, you’re just left with a very crude idea for 2 Horse Race. A very crude idea that Lee Bradfield is trying to get you pay him a pretty decent sum of money for. That just isn’t the kind of investment that I can bring myself to consider worthwhile, and because of that, I would apply the same thoughts to the wider service.
