Ron Williams Racing is a horse racing tipster service which is operated by the eponymous Ron Williams. The results that are shown demonstrate consistent profits and plenty of potential.
Introduction to Ron Williams Racing
Quite often, a tipster service will be released with little apparent fanfare. This can be a for a number of reasons, but when it happens it can inevitably slip under the radar. Sometimes, in fact, dare I say most of the time, this isn’t a bad thing.
Every now and then I discover something that I missed and it is a relief to not have wasted my time on crap. On the polar opposite side of this, there are services that I wish I knew about earlier. They become reminders of potential profit that has been lost to the annals of time (it is incredibly frustrating to discover a tipster service just after a hot run).
It really looks like Ron Williams Racing could be a fantastic example of the latter. I have seen no promotion for the service (I actually discovered by luck) despite the fact that Ron Williams appears to be more active than most tipsters I review. With this in mind, let’s put Ron Williams Racing in the spotlight.
What Does Ron Williams Racing Offer?
I know that I have talked up Ron Williams Racing a lot in my introduction, but honestly, it is a rather typical horse racing tipster service in most ways. Selections are issued to subscribers on an almost daily basis (Ron Williams says that his service is based on the quality of racing and hat sometimes, this leads to days where there simply aren’t any bets).
When selections are available, Ron Williams Racing operates how you would expect, that is to say they are sent out via email, usually on the morning of racing.
In terms of the bets themselves, Ron Williams Racing is made up of a combination of win and each way bets. The focus here is clearly on the former with Ron Williams only really recommending each way on the bets that have longer odds. Talking of which, there is a lot of variety in the odds that are recommended.
I have seen horses advised through Ron Williams Racing at as high as 26.00. What you don’t see a lot of here however are short priced horses or backing of favourites. The volume of bets is always reasonable with even the busier days producing a manageable number of bets.
Ron Williams has made mention in his many tweets (a topic I will come to later) about the importance of sticking to stakes. This doesn’t necessarily mean that he has a particular staking plan in place for Ron Williams Racing however. In fact, the proofing which is provided demonstrates a level 1 point staking plan based off £20 per point.
Finally, I want to talk about the strike rate that Ron Williams has achieved with Ron Williams Racing. Between July 2017 and June 2018, this stood at 23.82%.
In and of itself, this doesn’t necessarily look like the strongest number however when you factor in the odds that are advised, I think it looks much better. Furthermore, I think that the fact that Ron Williams Racing has been able to maintain this kind of result over almost a full year of betting says a lot.
How Does Ron Williams Racing Work?
Rather unfortunately, we aren’t really told what the selection process for Ron Williams Racing entails. We are however given a bio of Ron Williams which I do think offers some insight. He has been involved in the betting industry for the entirety of his career and “quickly learned how to turn his expertise into profits”.
Following a period tipping to a few friends and his service growing through word of mouth, he was supposedly scouted to be a pro tipster at race courses around the country. Ron Williams has also apparently owned his own horses.
This all sounds impressive, but it doesn’t really tell us anything about how bets for Ron Williams Racing are found. Normally I take exception to this as I believe that punters should be able to make an informed decision about what they are buying into.
Given that there are almost 11 months of proofing provided (as well as Ron Williams being active elsewhere on social media), I am willing to give Ron Williams Racing a bit of a pass in this regard.
What is the Initial Investment?
There is only one option if you wish to subscribe to Ron Williams Racing which is a monthly subscription.
This is priced at £37 (plus VAT) which does make it towards the premium end of things. None the less, it is far from expensive. In order to get a feel for Ron Williams Racing and whether or not it is for you, there is a 2 week trial which is ran before your monthly subscription starts. This is priced at just £1 (plus VAT again).
Ron Williams says in the terms and conditions that “No refunds of subscriptions will be given under any circumstances”, however I think that it is worth noting that the service is sold through Clickbank who do offer a 60 day money back guarantee on all of their products.
What is the Rate of Return?
In 11 months, Ron Williams Racing was able to turn a profit of 171.1 points of profit. This doesn’t necessarily look the best based at first glance however it is a respectable 15.55 points per month. Further more, it is important to factor in that there have been no losing months in this period (even if January was only 0.1 points).
What is really impressive to me however is the ROI of 21.88%.
Conclusion on Ron Williams Racing
I always think that one of the most important and unspoken elements of a tipster service that has to be considered is how genuine it is.
This isn’t just in reference to the multitudes of highly questionable tipsters that seem to get emailed to me on a week by week basis, but larger tipster stables who are quick to put something to market because it’s done 100 points in a month. In the case of Ron Williams Racing, there is one thing that shows that Ron Williams is genuine more than anything else, and that is his twitter feed.
Social media is inescapable in the betting world these days and it is used in a lot of different ways. In the case of Ron Williams Racing, it is to constantly update his subscribers. For example, over the last 4 weeks, he is almost 40 points up. A point that was made just yesterday afternoon.
There is also references made to losses and a bit of bad luck as well, all of which help to sell Ron Williams Racing to me as it shows a tipster who understands his craft.
I feel like there is a very definite lesson to be learned from Ron Williams Racing. It is not the cheapest service, and for the money, I don’t think it is the most profitable either. What it definitely is however is a labour of love and that can go a long way. It has been a long time since I have seen a tipster or product creator who is so genuinely in tune with their subscribers.
Service can make or break something and in the case of Ron Williams Racing, it makes it for me.
There are other factors of course. Ron Williams Racing is ultimately profitable. This is important. And whilst the points profit doesn’t necessarily look the best (although £20 stakes would mean an extra £250 per month on average after subs), the ROI is very good. 21.88% return can mean a lot if you are willing to stick to it.
With all of this in mind, Ron Williams Racing is one of the better tipsters that I have looked at recently and it is worth some very real consideration.
