ARH Racing Review

ARH Racing is a new horse racing tipster service launched through the Tipster TV arm of the Betfan group. It is operated by a tipster known as Ron Hemmings.

What does the product offer?

ARH Racing is one of the newest offerings from the Betfan stable of tipsters and it appears to be something of an interesting one. Not so much in how it works, but more in the person who is supposedly behind the service (although I will look at Ron Hemmings in greater detail a little later on). Referring to itself as “the premier horse racing betting club”, the sales material for ARH Racing makes some pretty bold claims.

With that in mind, let’s start to look at exactly what is on offer here. As a tipster service, ARH Racing is rather unique in so much as there is seemingly variety everywhere.

Selections are emailed out to users each morning as well as uploaded to the members area on the Tipster TV website. There is a rather mixed bag out there when it comes to the volume of these selections as well.

Generally speaking, Ron Hemmings will only advise ARH Racing subscribers of one or two selections. Some days however, this can be as high as nine.

Moving onto the selections themselves, there remains a fair amount of variety there too. Generally speaking, ARH Racing does favour longer odds. The lowest odds that I have noticed so far are 2.63 whilst the highest go well into double figures.

What makes this particularly interesting is the bets that you will be placing. ARH Racing advises of win bets arguably least of all. In fact, Ron Hemmings seems to favour each way bets with more than the occasional double thrown in for measure (both win and each way).

The staking plan that Ron Hemmings has adopted for ARH Racing breaks the usual Betfan mould of level 5 point stakes. Instead, bets for ARH Racing are advised at between 1 point and 5, however I should stress that there are more examples towards the top of this scale than the bottom.

In terms of the strike rate, you could be forgiven for thinking that the long odds would keep it low. Instead, Ron Hemmings has guided ARH Racing to a strike rate of just under 35% in the first 3 months of proofing.

How does the product work?

At the key of ARH Racing is the supposed experience of Ron Hemmings. Given the he says he placed his first bet all the way back in the 50’s, this means a lot of years as a horse racing bettor.

There is more than just experience at play when selections are made for ARH Racing however. Ron Hemmings actually goes into some detail about what his process entails.

He says that he looks at as many aspects of a race as he possibly can, ranging from the going to the distance and from the jockey to the weight the horse has to carry.

By looking at this information and casting his analytical eye over it, Ron Hemmings says that he is able to ultimately decide whether or not a horse will be selected for ARH Racing or not.

What is the initial investment?

Tipster TV offer ARH Racing on 3 different packages which are a monthly subscription, a quarterly subscription and a quarterly one off. The monthly subscription actually only runs for 28 days and comes in at £39 per month.

Both of the quarterly options are priced at £78 and run for 90 days, however the subscription is recurring.

As is typical for any product from the wider Betfan group, there is unfortunately no real money back guarantee in place for ARH Racing. The team say that they will try to review any refund requests however these aren’t something that are typically offered.

What is the rate of return?

Since going live, ARH Racing has produced a profit of 278.14 points to best odds guaranteed and the recommended staking plan. It is worth pointing out that whilst it is still only early in December at the time of my writing this, ARH Racing is yet to see a losing month.


It isn’t that often that I have little criticism or concern for a product. I consider it my job to pick apart a service and identify any potential problems. In the case of ARH Racing however, I am yet to see anything that really stands out as bad.

The proofing is all via Betfan which means that it can be trusted and I see little reason to doubt the credentials of ARH Racing.

In fact, the only thing that I can really say about ARH Racing that really stands out as being a “negative” is the fact that this is still a service in its infancy.

I maintain that in order to see how a tipster service will really perform, you need at least 6 months of results, just to see how the tipster will perform when they encounter a losing streak and are under pressure to turn things around.

Despite that, ARH Racing has (if you will pardon the pun) romped out of the gates and it is one of the strongest looking offerings I have looked at from the Betfan group for some time.

With that in mind, I would definitely keep ARH Racing on my radar as there is simply bags of potential here for the future in my opinion.
