Equine Equity is a brand new horse racing tipster service which is being offered through the Betfan group. It is operated by Jack Cassidy and has so far more than tripled its betting bank in relatively short space of time.
What does the product offer?
Betfan have once again done a very good job of getting me invested in one of their services. Fortunately (and has actually happened a few times recently) it is for all of the right reasons. There is very little in the way of pomp and circumstance surrounding the launch of Equine Equity and that is not always a bad thing. It allows the core essence of a product to shine through without bogging it down with ridiculous claims and over inflated profits.
Whilst the headlines for Equine Equity do look like an example of this, there is staking plan in place that Jack Cassidy has devised. This takes the results way beyond what they have any right to be in some respects. What you are left with in Equine Equity however is an intensely profitable service which is actually pretty low maintenance. All of this definitely paints Betfan’s newest product in a very bright light, but are these positives all that there is to the service or is it more balanced in the grand scheme of things.
So what exactly does Equine Equity entail? I will start by being very frank and saying that there is a lot that is under wraps and not public knowledge. Because of this, I cannot pass too much in the way of comment (and if you want to know more, you will have to buy Equine Equity!). What I can say is that in terms of day to day usage, Jack Cassidy doesn’t do anything different to most other tipsters that are on the market.
Each day when selections are available they are sent out directly to subscribers via email as well as being uploaded to a special Equine Equity member’s area on the Betfan website. Bets are advised as a combination of win and each way bets with the vast majority being the former. The odds that you will be aiming to back at cover a reasonable range however I don’t believe that Jack Cassidy ever lets himself drift into silly numbers. Even the volume of bets that will be issued via Equine Equity remains reasonable with very few days having more than 4 bets.
The staking plan is one thing that I can’t go into too much detail about which is because it makes up a large part of what makes Equine Equity successful. What I can say is that it is a compounding based staking plan. This means that as your bank grows, so does the amount that you bet. This kind of staking plan is often very successful on paper however it can carry risk, especially if you hit a losing streak.
This only really leaves the strike rate to talk about. Jack Cassidy has guided Equine Equity to a strike rate of 22.22% at the time of writing. This isn’t necessarily a bad result given the kind odds that you are betting on and the fact that they are back to win. It is however towards the bottom end of what I would deem acceptable from a tipster of this nature.
It is also interesting to note that possibly for the first time that I can recall, the Jack Cassidy team are offering bonuses when you purchase Equine Equity. The first of these is a copy of the Betfan Bible. This is a 137 page book which provides advice on betting. Furthermore, if you sign up to the 6 month package of Equine Equity, you also get a free subscription to Value Finder. This is an entirely different service which is also offered through Betfan.
How does the product work?
In terms of the selection process for Equine Equity, there is actually a fair amount of information made available. Jack Cassidy says that he is meticulous in his analysis of horse racing statistics and relentlessly researches before increasing his statistics. Ultimately, there is a focus on speed ratings with Equine Equity which is where Jack Cassidy decides to place his focus. These are supposedly based on a “good 12 months” of developing his own statistics.
What is the initial investment?
If you want to subscribe to Equine Equity there are three different options available. The first of these is a monthly subscription which is by far and away the most expensive at £38. Furthermore, Betfan define a month as 28 days which means that you will pay this 13 times over the course of the year. The next option or Equine Equity is to subscribe for 90 days at a cost of £76. By far and away the best value however comes in the form of a 6 month subscription which costs just £77 and incudes bonus access to Value Finder.
It is worth keeping in mind if you do choose to buy Equine Equity that the Betfan group don’t really offer any refunds on their products. They do say that thy will review requests however these are not typically offered.
What is the rate of return?
Obviously the key selling point to Equine Equity is that the betting bank has tripled in a 6 month period. This is a very strong result which I feel is backed up by an ROI of 37.25%. Of course all of this is based on results produced by the staking plan that Jack Cassidy uses. Even if you were to simply use level stakes, you would still have made an average profit of just under 15 points per month.
It is always a pleasant surprise when I can say that a service is impressive, undoubtedly more so when it has achieved something through genuine means. The results that Equine Equity has produced to date fall into that category. There is of course more to a service than just the immediate results and this is where I feel that caution is warranted in this case. There are a number of reasons for this but I will start with what I feel to be the most pertinent.
I am always a little but wary when products claim to double and triple your bank balance for a number of reasons. The main one for me has t be the fact that there is no context for how often you can expect this. Obviously in the case of Equine Equity, it has taken 6 months to achieve the results this time round, but this is by no means an indication of how it will achieve moving forward and this is undoubtedly a problem.
I have also talked at length about the staking plan for Equine Equity and how I feel about compounding. It all boils down to the fact that compounding your stakes works very well on paper. If you apply it to the real world however, it can restrict when you can take out money and how it will influence future profits. For example, with a level staking plan, there is a base betting bank and anything over that you know is yours when you want it. With compounding however, taking money out instantly lower your betting potential in the future.
All of this for me leaves one very clear question and that is one of value for money. I you are paying monthly for Equine Equity, I am not convinced that this is there. On the other hand, 6 months at £77 (with bonuses as well) and Betfan put forward a much more enticing option. It is rather a shame that it is only really with the longer subscription rate that there is value for Equine Equity. This is in no small part down to the fact that I believe you are taking quite a risk.
I want to give Equine Equity the benefit of the doubt however I believe that this is something of a big ask. The fact that the betting bank has been tripled once is in no way an indicator that it will do it again. There is also the fact that compounding means that you have to have the discipline and commitment to see through selections to the end. If you are willing to do this, then I think that Equine Equity is probably worth a look. I don’t believe that it is a bad product, I simply believe that it will likely only work for a certain type of person.
