Luke Martin Racing Club is a new horse racing tipster service from the eponymous Luke Martin that is being sold through Bet Kudos.
What does the product offer?
Luke Martin Racing Club is a brand new horse racing tipster service that Bet Kudos says makes quality and profits paramount to the service. The service offers users somewhat occasional tips (usually every other day on average) that cover a number of different races up and down the UK. The focus of Luke Martin Racing Club however is really on festivals and what Luke Martin calls high quality racing.
The selections themselves cover a variety of different bet types however the majority are each way and each way patents with the occasional singles and doubles.
The staking plan for Luke Martin Racing Club eschews the usual Betfan method of betting 5 points on every bet with staking genuinely being between 2 and 5 points.
The strike rate for Luke Martin Racing Club stands at a respectable enough 46.03% so far for this year. It is worth pointing out that Luke Martin has provided his selections for one festival before.
How does the product work?
In terms of the actual selection process for Luke Martin Racing Club, there isn’t too much information made available. Luke Martin doesn’t go into any real detail however he does provide some insight into the process.
He says that whilst trying to figure out how to find winning horses he learned to look past whether they had won their last race and instead consider things like “handicap marks, ground conditions, race distances etc.”.
This suggests to me that there is a strong emphasis on statistical analysis however this is somewhat speculative on my behalf.
What is the initial investment?
Luke Martin Racing Club is definitely not cheap with Bet Kudos asking £57 per month (actually 28 days) or £114 per quarter (90 days) which is a little on the pricey side.
In terms of a money back guarantee, there is unfortunately nothing really in place for Luke Martin Racing Club with the usual Betfan policy in place. This says that whilst refunds are not typically offered, they will review any refund requests.
What is the rate of return?
Over the course of March, Luke Martin Racing Club has actually incurred a small loss of around 8 points. This is by no means a huge amount but it is hard to ignore the fact that a loss is a loss.
This is especially true when you consider that Bet Kudos are asking a staggering amount of money for Luke Martin Racing Club.
On the one time that Luke Martin has been brought out before Luke Martin Racing Club he performed exceptionally well making over 250 points of profit.
The problem is that it is very hard to justify a service based on this alone, especially when the current form is far from consistent with the previous performance.
With all of this in mind I think that I’d be inclined to give Luke Martin Racing Club a miss and maybe look back in the future, but right now it is a long way from a £57 per month tipster service.
