Pinnacle Racing Tips is a long standing horse racing tipster service which is operated by the Pro Betting Club team with selections coming courtesy of Sean Brehaut. The service demonstrates some very respectable long term results.
Introduction to Pinnacle Racing Tips
More than anything else, I always like to champion an approach to betting that is based around long term results. The fact of the matter is this. I have seen far too many tipsters launch off the back of a good few months, only to end up losing substantially over the next 6 months. Unfortunately, this approach to betting is rarely exciting and as such, I do find that it puts a lot of people off. But to each their own. To me, consistency is the single most important thing to consider when it comes to betting.
This is all important to keep in mind because the subject of today’s review is a tipster service that may as well be a byword for consistency. I want to talk about this more in detail later, but Pinnacle Racing Tips is yet to have a losing month since March 2019. Let that sink in for a minute. That is a bloody incredible result, as are a number of other figures too (that I will cover over the course of this review). Honestly, I am genuinely excited about what Pro Betting Club and Sean Brehaut are doing here.
Now, this is where I usually balance things out a bit and talk about the fact that there are also negatives to consider. Things to keep at the back of your mind. With Pinnacle Racing Tips… Not really. There is one thing, however, I don’t personally see it as a deal breaker. For some people though, I suppose it might be a bit of a big deal. What I won’t do however is blow things out of proportion. Where there are flaws with what Pro Betting Club are doing, you can rest assured I will point them out.
What Does Pinnacle Racing Tips Offer?
There are a lot of tipster management companies out there these days, however, Pro Betting Club always stand out to me for… Well, a bit of an odd reason really. Where a lot of companies are looking to find the next big thing, releasing apps, using different ways of getting tips to you, etc. Pro Betting Club just don’t. They take a very measured, but ultimately quite basic approach. Something that I don’t think is the worst thing.
What this means for you as a punter is that you can expect to receive Sean Brehaut’s selections for Pinnacle Racing Tips directly via email. They land the evening before racing, usually between 4.30pm and 6.30pm with you giving you ample time to get bets placed, and well… That’s about it. As I say, Pro Betting Club aren’t keen to break new ground. This does however have some negative knock on effects.
One of the things that I would definitely say is worth doing here, if you can, is taking advantage of an odds comparison site. Whilst there are some elements of Pinnacle Racing Tips that are interesting, this is a horse racing tipster service. There is only so much that you can do to extract value, and one of those things in my opinion is seeking out the right bookies. If you can make 20% extra on a bet, why wouldn’t you want to do that? Especially because Sean Brehaut gives you so much time to seek out the best odds.
And with average odds of 5.35, I think that is a particularly valid line of questioning. Don’t get me wrong, Pinnacle Racing Tips does have its fair share of outsiders. In fact, only the other day a bet was advised priced at 29.00. But most of the winners come courtesy of smaller odds or wins on an each way bet. As such, you aren’t generally getting those massive wins that really boost your bank. Fortunately, I don’t believe this is what Sean Brehaut is about.
Now, I’ve mentioned the fact that Pinnacle Racing Tips involves each way betting, and I think that opens up a good opportunity to talk about the kinds of bets that you will be advised of. By and large, Pro Betting Club are operating a win based service here. But there are a good number of bets that are advised as each way. Usually around one per day.
What I really like here though is that Pinnacle Racing Tips isn’t afraid to lean into some of the other betting markets out there. It isn’t entirely uncommon to see bets advised as doubles, trebles, and even Trixies. All of this allows you get some seemingly very good value out of bets whilst somewhat minimising your risk.
Also helping to manage risk is the fact that Pinnacle Racing Tips is relatively low volume. Most days will have somewhere between 2 and 4 selections made available. On occasion, you may see slightly higher than that, but rarely do Pro Betting Club appear to get into double digits. When this does happen, it is typically down to the fact that there is a big racing festival on, something we are told that Sean Brehaut is a specialist of.
With all of that out of the way, I want to talk stakes. Because this is an area that I think it is very important to consider with Pinnacle Racing Tips. Because this is not a low stakes service. Generally speaking, you can expect to see anywhere from 1 point all the way up to 4 points staked on individual bets. When it comes to the Trixies, this number can get even higher.
Of course, that doesn’t sound prohibitive, but it can add up during losing streaks. Honestly, it isn’t too uncommon to see losing runs where you experience drawdown of 15-20 points. Something that is easily accommodated by an advised betting bank of 100 points.
Now, being experienced with the numbers that surround betting, I can tell you now that isn’t too bad. But it can be intimidating, and for me, perfectly highlights the importance of that long term mindset if you want to follow Pinnacle Racing Tips.
Finally, I want to talk strike rate. This stands at 30.03% at the time of writing, and, generally speaking I think that it is a moderately accurate reflection of what you can expect. However, as I’ve mentioned, the nature of Pinnacle Racing Tips does still mean that you can anticipate losing streaks of as many as 14 bets.
How Does Pinnacle Racing Tips Work?
Rather frustratingly, whenever it comes to anything from Pro Betting Club, you don’t get a lot of insight into what you are getting into selection process wise etc. We are told that Sean Brehaut has been betting on horses for over e15 years now and has been offering tips for 10 of them. That definitely speaks of experience, which is welcome.
Furthermore, we are told that Pinnacle Racing Tips is Sean Brehaut’s full time job. That means that he is reliant on his own bets landing in order for his business to remain profitable. This incentive does a lot to add to my belief in the service, but again, Pro Betting Club aren’t really telling us anything about the selection process.
All of this is a bit disappointing if I’m frank. I don’t necessarily want a detailed breakdown of exactly how Sean Brehaut is finding his tips. That would be incredibly unreasonable. I do however think that you should have some insight of what you are getting yourself into. And the unfortunate fact of the matter is that with Pinnacle Racing Tips, that simply isn’t an option because of the lack of information Pro Betting Club provide.
With all of that said, I do think that with this particular service, the proofing Pro Betting Club provide go a long way. The fact of the matter is that you can clearly see how Sean Brehaut has performed. And the fact that it goes all the way back to March 2019 means that it gives you a very good idea of what the likely future for Pinnacle Racing Tips is. And honestly, the future is pretty bright if you ask my opinion.
What is the Initial Investment?
There are just two options available if you want to sign up to Pinnacle Racing Tips, and honestly, I don’t think that either is particularly bad. Firstly, there is a monthly subscription which is priced at £39.50 per month. Alternatively, you can sign up on a quarterly basis which is priced at £89.50 every 3 months. This represents a small saving compared to the monthly rate.
What is worth keeping in mind is that Pro Betting Club do not offer any sort of refunds on their products. This isn’t necessarily a deal breaker for Pinnacle Racing Tips as it is pretty much industry standard. However, it does mean that you should ensure you are in a position to follow along if you want to actually get your moneys worth.
What is the Rate of Return?
Since March 2019, Pinnacle Racing Tips has made a profit of 1,035.22 points. That is a bloody impressive number in less than two years. For some context, it means an average monthly profit of 49.29 points from Sean Brehaut’s selections. That is genuinely one of the most impressive results that I’ve seen over such a long term.
Making this even arguably even more impressive is the fact that Pinnacle Racing Tips hasn’t had a single losing month in this period. The worst month was 4.3 points (which still would have covered your subs to £10 stakes). As a final bit of context on performance, Pro Betting Club show an ROI of 16.66%, which over the duration is a bloody good number to have maintained.
Conclusion for Pinnacle Racing Tips
I’m not normally one to gush over a tipster service, but it’s been a long time since I’ve looked at something and just genuinely been impressed. It is pretty hard to find fault with Pinnacle Racing Tips if I’m completely honest. The results are solid, the service is manageable, Sean Brehaut doesn’t take unnecessary risk with his staking plan. Honestly, everything is kosher, and the fact that it is achieved at a price that is very reasonable only makes it better.
So… Review over, right? It’s a winner and it deserves some serious consideration. Absolutely. But there are a few little things that I think warrant consideration here. I cannot stress enough the importance of maintaining a long term view with Pinnacle Racing Tips. And to anybody who takes betting seriously, they’re thinking to themselves, obviously. But some people who are new may not be so used to this.
Let me give an example. A 100 point betting bank is recommended for Pinnacle Racing Tips. Let me pick a week in December that highlights what I’m talking about. You start on the 18th with a 4.8 point profit, only to have a 4 point loss all but eradicate that win. The next day sees losses of 10 points with a 0.3 point return off a placed bet. The next day shows losses of 10.15 points. The day after that, a 12 point loss. That means that at this point, your 100 point betting bank is 31.05 points down in just a few days.
As a seasoned bettor, you can have faith in the process, but I know a lot of people who are new to betting who may well balk at that. And that isn’t unreasonable. 31% of your betting bank gone in just a few days. Earlier this month, there was a continuous losing streak of 30 points over a few days. Again, Pinnacle Racing Tips has eventually bounced back, but it is disheartening.
And that is the real takeaway from Pinnacle Racing Tips. I think that Sean Brehaut is running a very good tipster service here. But as stupid as this may seem when said out loud, a good tipster service can be ruined by bad punters. If you are serious about this service, then you really do need to follow through on every single bet. Because that is what will ultimately make you the money here.
So yes, I would absolutely recommend giving Pinnacle Racing Tips a look. It isn’t particularly expensive, it is very profitable, and the results are generally consistent. But to reiterate my earlier point, this isn’t something that is going to be for everybody. Especially if you aren’t willing to see through a run of bad results for long term gain.
