Glenn Whelan Racing is a horse racing tipster service which is operated through the Tipster Street stable of tipsters. Selections themselves come courtesy of the eponymous Glenn Whelan.
Introduction to Glenn Whelan Racing
There are a lot of different things that I believe you can reasonably ask for, one of those things is undoubtedly consistency. I would much prefer to win little and often rather than simply having massive wins coming in once in a blue moon and having to stretch that profit out.
This is important because ultimately, this is what Tipster Street claim that they are providing with Glenn Whelan Racing. The results do seem to reflect this from what I have seen so far, so with this positive approach in mind, let’s see whether or not Glenn Whelan Racing is at all capable of delivering.
What Does Glenn Whelan Racing Offer?
Cutting through all of the sales pitch for Glenn Whelan Racing, you are actually getting access to a relatively straight forward tipster service. What I mean by this is that each day selections are issued to subscribers directly to the email that you subscribe with Tipster Street on.
These are issued quite early in the morning (typically between 9am and 11am) providing plenty of time to get your bets placed. One of the things that stands out about Glenn Whelan Racing is something that all services on the Tipster Street platform have in common, and that is a high quality of content when it comes to the emails that are sent.
With all of that said, I now want to look at the bets themselves. One of the main ways that Glenn Whelan Racing stands out compared to the wider majority of tipster services online lies in said bets.
Tipster Street’s proofing demonstrates a decent variety of bet types, all of which are appropriate to the selection that is advised. This means that you won’t be backing long shots to win and each way on short priced favourites. In terms of the volume of tips, there are typically no more than five bets advised through Glenn Whelan Racing on a given day.
One of the elements of the service that I found to be interesting is a surprisingly straightforward staking plan. All bets are advised to be backed to 2 points, meaning you are backing Glenn Whelan Racing’s win bets at 2 points or 1 point each way.
This is an interesting approach in so much as Tipster Street and Glenn Whelan Racing provide an opportunity to maximise profit and minimise risk this way. With a betting bank advised of 150 points, this should be more than enough to cover any ups and downs that you may encounter.
All of this is well and good so far, but the truth of the matter is that if you aren’t winning through Glenn Whelan Racing, then you aren’t making money. As such, it is good to see a strike rate of 32% according to Tipster Street. Of course I don’t tend to take these numbers blindly and so it is of note that the proofing for Glenn Whelan Racing roughly ties in with this number.
How Does Glenn Whelan Racing Work?
As is often the case with larger tipster stables, there is no real reasoning on where Glenn Whelan’s selections are coming from.
There is no explanation or insight into his selection process etc. for Glenn Whelan Racing and honestly, it is difficult to see this as anything other than frustrating. If I have said it once, I have said it a million times. Whilst I wouldn’t ever expect any tipster to give away their full selection process, I don’t think it’s unreasonable for consumers to make a decision as to whether or not a service is for them.
With that having been said, as is also very often the case when it comes to services that are offered through larger tipster stables, Glenn Whelan Racing does come with a very comprehensive amount of proofing. In fact, Tipster Street have been working with Glenn Whelan since 2015 which means 4 years of evidence. This is more than enough in my opinion to say whether or not you believe that Glenn Whelan Racing would be a good fit for you.
What is the Initial Investment?
One of the things that is incredibly standout about all products from the Tipster Street tipster stable is the pricing. They are a long way from expensive and this is as applicable to Glenn Whelan Racing as any other tipster service that I have looked at from them. There are two subscription options which are available, the first of which is a monthly subscription which is priced at just £14.95 per mont.
Alternatively, you can sign up for Glenn Whelan Racing on a quarterly basis at a cost of £29.95. It is worth keeping in mind the fact that unfortunately, Tipster Street do not provide any money back guarantee on their services, however they do offer a very generous trial. This means that no matter which option you choose to subscribe to with Glenn Whelan Racing, your first 30 days will cost you just £3.79.
What is the Rate of Return?
The number that really stands out to me when it comes to Glenn Whelan Racing is the average monthly profit. This sits at 9.66 points per month. Now I will hold my hands up entirely, I have said before now that this isn’t necessarily a massive amount of money and I maintain that. To the £10 stakes that Tipster Street recommend, you are looking at less that £100 per month. But, when you factor in the costs, it looks a lot more reasonable.
I have often highlighted the lack of income on services which are selling for £30 per month, in which case, £100 is not a massive amount. But you can quite easily pay for Glenn Whelan Racing quarterly in my opinion, and in doing so, you can make a decent profit in the longer term. For greater context, the overall profit for Glenn Whelan Racing since January 2016 is 377.11 points.
Conclusion the Glenn Whelan Racing Service
I want to start by highlighting one massive thing that I have skipped over a little bit so far, and that is the point that at the time of writing this, Glenn Whelan Racing is losing money. The service is on its 4th losing month having lost a profit of some 100 points. This is disappointing; however it would also be remiss of me to point out that Tipster Street’s proofing shows that this sort of thing unfortunately happened with Glenn Whelan Racing before now and that it can happen again.
With that out of the way, one of the things that I find oddly comforting about Glenn Whelan Racing as a service is that it has consistently turned around losing periods into profitable ones. It is clear to me that the eponymous Glenn Whelan has a pretty good idea of what he is doing if this kind of pattern is able to maintained over a 3 year period and there is no way to pretend that is anything but a positive.
So, Glenn Whelan Racing is cheap, it is relatively profitable, and it shows consistency. Is there anything that might be seen as being a downside to the service? Honestly, yes, there is I have talks about how I am ultimately pretty accepting of the results for Glenn Whelan Racing, and I stand by that argument to some degree.
The fact of the matter however is that there are a large number of tipster services on the market that are ultimately significantly more profitable than Glenn Whelan Racing. You might pay a little more for them, but with an ROI of just 5%, there is no ignoring that there is more money to be made with other tipsters.
So, what are my final thoughts on all of this?
Personally, I see Glenn Whelan Racing as being a great starting tipster service. It is not expensive, which is undeniably important. It is a very realistic tipster service in terms of what to expect, and it has a strong history of ultimately, turning a profit.
Now, that is far from the be all and end all here. I do have some questions about how affordable those who are new to betting might find the staking plan, and whilst I think that it is a realistic tipster service, this does mean downs as well as ups (as the current results exemplify).
None the less, you don’t have to spend a lot to make a half decent profit with Glenn Whelan Racing. For a lot of people I know, bottom line would ultimately make it a solid option for dipping the proverbial pinkie toe into the water.
