On the Nod Horse Racing Tips is a new horse racing tipster service which is offered under the Tipster TV arm of the Betfan group with selections come courtesy of an unnamed tipster. The service has generated some rather strong profits to date.
What does the product offer?
Unlike a lot of Betfan related products, there are no ridiculous claims surrounding On the Nod Horse Racing Tips and as such, I am openly rather more interested in this service than their usual fair. Even the headline simply says “Get on today’s hottest horse racing tips”. Compared to the usually blunt marketing techniques of bloodying the bookies nose, this is a very reserved introduction.
This isn’t the only thing that seems to be different however. Even reading through the sales material for On the Nod Horse Racing Tips, there is a decent amount of detail without ever venturing into the realms of questionability. With all of this in mind, I would even be inclined to say that I am somewhat excited to be looking at On the Nod Horse Racing Tips and with that in mind, let’s get down to the proverbial business.
The first thing that stands out for me about On the Nod Horse Racing Tips is that compared to a lot of products from within the Betfan group, there doesn’t seem to be any huge need for daily selections. In fact, there are relatively frequently odd days where the tipster behind the service doesn’t have any selections. When they are available they are issued via email as well as being uploaded to a member’s area on the Tipster TV website.
In terms of the types of bets that you will be placing, there is certainly variety with On the Nod Horse Racing Tips. In fact, you can expect to be backing horses to win as well as placing each way bets. On top of this, there are also a number of small accumulators in the shape of doubles and trebles. Fortunately, the volume of bets is never too high on a day by day basis.
In terms of the numbers, most products from within the Betfan group use a 5 point level staking plan and On the Nod Horse Racing Tips isn’t any different in this regard. This includes the aforementioned each way bets although the accumulators tend to involve staking slightly less. Personally, I find this to be problematic for a number of reasons which I will get to later in this review.
The only thing that is really left to consider is the strike rate for On the Nod Horse Racing Tips. I have to hold my hands up here and figured since there were accumulator bets involved (even small ones) the strike rate would take a pretty substantial hit. I was pleasantly surprised with the results however. Since the service began proofing back in June of this year, an average strike rate of 40% has been attained, a very strong figure for any backing based service.
How does the product work?
The tipster behind On the Nod Horse Racing Tips says that he has had a keen interest in horse racing for a considerable amount of time, over two decades to be specific. This has led on to “years” of experience studying things like a horses for the course and distance as well as jockey and trainer combinations. This combined with “some top connections” appears to be the driving force behind On the Nod Horse Racing Tips as a tipster service. This is rather on the vague side which is unfortunate however I have to credit Tipster TV with offering at least some insight to the selection process.
What is the initial investment?
There are two options if you want to subscribe to On the Nod Horse Racing Tips which are a monthly option and a quarterly one. These are priced at £37 and £74 respectively (plus VAT as well) however it is worth pointing out that they technically only operate for 28 days and 90 days rather than the advertised month and quarter.
In terms of a money back guarantee, there is unfortunately nothing in place per se with On the Nod Horse Racing Tips. As with all products that fall under the Betfan umbrella, their terms and conditions apply. These state that refunds are not typically given on their services however they will review any refund requests and if they feel they are warranted.
What is the rate of return?
Since proofing with Tipster TV started in June of this year On the Nod Horse Racing Tips has generated a profit of 475.46 points. Whilst it is undeniable that these numbers have been boosted courtesy of the typical Betfan staking plan. In spite of this, the numbers are still actually quite respectable. Even dividing the profits by 5 making just 1 point stakes, On the Nod Horse Racing Tips would have made 95 points of profit which isn’t too bad. What really demonstrates the performance to me however is the ROI of 66.59%. This is a phenomenal number for any service and to have maintained this over almost 6 months is no small feat.
It isn’t often that I find myself particularly enamoured with products from the Betfan group however On the Nod Horse Racing Tips is definitely an exception. In fact, I would say that there is a lot to like about the service. The results that have been achieved are strong and this is definitely half of the battle. What is more impressive however is the consistency with which they have been achieved. In 6 months, On the Nod Horse Racing Tips has very rarely lost money and when this has happened, it hasn’t been for long.
On top of this the prices that Tipster TV are asking are very reasonable. A service that I looked at recently was charging almost double the price for an ROI of less than 10%. This creates some sense of the value for money that is on offer here. This is another big tick for me.
All things considered, I think that On the Nod Horse Racing Tips is a very complete tipster service. I don’t think that it is necessarily going to make you a fortune, especially if you break away from the 5 point staking plan (the only real criticism that I have about On the Nod Horse Racing Tips). What you should be able to do however is comfortably cover your monthly subscription fee and have some profit in your back pocket and for many readers, this is all that matters.
