Jockey Jewels is a brand new horse racing tipster service that is operated by Paul Jenkins. He is supposedly an ex-jockey who has generated a substantial profit through betting.
What does the product offer?
The headlines for Jockey Jewels read like a dream for those who are looking for an easy route into profitable horse racing tipsters. They talk about how you can earn tens of thousands of pounds per month. Paul Jenkins also happens to drop in the “fact” that Jockey Jewels provides information that “usually only jockeys and industry experts know about”. This is very tantalising, but only if there is any truth to it.
At a glance the website for Jockey Jewels looks like a slick and well put together affair. Everything is nicely laid out and there is a consistent promise that you can turn your life around by following Paul Jenkins’s selections. As I will get to later on in this review however, there may be a bit too much focus on this aspect. With that in mind, let’s delve into what you get with Jockey Jewels and see if it can live up to the promise.
Jockey Jewels is a very straightforward affair as far as tipster services go. Paul Jenkins issues selections on a daily basis and these are sent out directly via email each morning. All that you have to do is place the bets “online or at your local bookies” and win big. The astute amongst you will notice that there is a problem here in so much as most good quality tipsters will often advise you of where you can get the best odds rather than leaving you to go wherever. The bets themselves are all very straightforward.
In terms of the numbers, there are unfortunately no real details provided. For example, when you start trying to identify a staking plan there is no information made available. We are simply stuck with the presumed idea that you should bet one point per bet on Paul Jenkins’s selections. This isn’t however something that is explicitly stated. Furthermore, all of the claims of making money are based around a “pounds and pence” value. This suggests to me that if you want to make close to the income that the sales material discusses you will have to bet a minimum amount.
On top of this, we are never told a strike rate for Jockey Jewels. There is some strong implication throughout the sales material that you shouldn’t really lose, but this isn’t ever put forward in a tangible fashion. Combine this with the fact that there is no proofing from which to calculate a strike rate, and it makes Paul Jenkins seem rather questionable in my opinion.
How does Jockey Jewels work?
The inner workings of Jockey Jewels are supposedly very straight forward and frankly rather unbelievable. Paul Jenkins says that in his time as a young jockey he began to supplement his income with betting on certain races. These bets were guaranteed to win as the jockeys were supposedly told which horses were assigned to win. Since that time, Paul Jenkins says that he has moved on from racing horses but has managed to keep in the know.
The implication here is that there are unnamed informants behind Jockey Jewels who are telling Paul Jenkins what these guaranteed winning horses are supposed to be. I am massively sceptical however. I don’t believe that horse racing is an entirely corruption free sport, nor would I like to say that race fixing definitely doesn’t happen. I am not convinced however that you could build a daily horse racing tipster service around this, even if you were in the know.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing there is only one option for those who wish to sign up to Jockey Jewels. This is a lifetime subscription and it costs just £26.99, supposedly a substantial discount on the claimed real value of £126.99. Because Paul Jenkins is selling Jockey Jewels through Clickbank, you do get a 60 day money back guarantee on the service. This is something which is acknowledged in the sales material too.
What is the rate of return?
The income potential for Jockey Jewels is the only reason that you would even consider Paul Jenkins’s selections as far as I can see. With a claimed income of in excess of £200,000 per year it can be easy to get excited. This amounts to “AT LEAST £4,000 this week – Guaranteed”. Of course this comes with no real proof to back the claims up outside of a highly questionable screenshot of a William Hill betting account which showed hundred of thousands of pounds there.
Put simply, don’t see a whole lot about Jockey Jewels that is worth getting excited over. Yes, the numbers appear great but I can’t help suspect that appearing great will be as far as Jockey Jewels goes. There are a number of different reasons for thinking this but some are more important than others.
The first I have already touched upon a little bit in mentioning the lack of a staking plan. Given that all of the income potential is talked about in monetary terms, there has to be a minimum that you must get even close to these numbers. For example, £200,000 per year at £1,000 per point seems rather plausible, if not realistic. But sticking with this hypothetical number, how many people reading this could place that kind of bet?
With the “why” out of the way, I want to examine the “how”. Paul Jenkins flat out says that certain races are rigged in horse racing and that these are how he is able to identify profit. Putting aside the legal implications of anybody who is betting on fixed races, I simply don’t see this being a real thing. As I touched upon, I can believe that the odd race a horse may be held back for a race. What I am much less certain about is whether or not there is an industry wide fixing syndicate. Giving Paul Jenkins the benefit of the doubt, I am curious as to who is giving this insider knowledge to a simple ex jockey.
These are some massive red flags and I could talk at length about others that exist within Jockey Jewels. This includes a lack of evidence that the service works at all (except the one questionable screenshot already mentioned), the lack of proofing, the suspicious focus on profits rather than the service itself.
All of these things really put me off a service and I think that Jockey Jewels has ticked the box of almost every indicator that I have that a service is less than genuine. With this in mind, not even a seemingly bargain price can save it. In fact, I can’t help but feel that the “real” value is something that has simply been added by Paul Jenkins in order to make the service seem more worthwhile.
