Saturday Super Seven is a new to market horse racing tipster service, of sorts, that is operated by Telegram Tips. The service is operated in conjunction with Tony McCormick and claims some substantial profit.
Introduction to Saturday Super Seven
When it comes to betting and the things that I look at, there is generally a focus on “serious betting”. This makes perfect sense, because the vast majority of people who visit the site are looking to make at least a semi serious second income. But the fact of the matter is that there are a huge number of more casual bettors out there who just like a bit of a punt. They watch the racing on a Saturday in the same way that other people will sit down and watch football. And sticking a few quid on it here and there just makes it that little bit better.
Now don’t get me wrong, I have seen a lot of different services that, whilst not necessarily aimed at casual punters, tend to align with what they might be looking for. But today, I am looking at something that, in my mind, really is aimed at that market. This makes Saturday Super Seven something quite unique. And the involvement of Tony McCormick as well only adds a real air of legitimacy to everything. Meanwhile, Telegram Tips have a lot of experience managing services which is yet another positive.
With all of that said, I can definitively say here and now that Saturday Super Seven isn’t going to be everybody’s cup of tea. This is a very unique beast that really, is somewhat genre defying. It isn’t quite a betting system, it isn’t quite a tipster service. It isn’t even something that has that directness that usually says “here is what you should do” about it. Tony McCormick and Telegram Tips have collaborated here to make something unlike anything on the market in many respects. The question is, is it worth your time and money?
What Does Saturday Super Seven Offer?
I’m not really sure I know where to start with Saturday Super Seven. If I’m putting all of my cards on the table. The fact of the matter is there isn’t a whole lot to compare it to in order to get some kind of point of reference. So, with that all of that said, I’m just going to try my best to get into it, and if things go a bit wayward, stick with me!
I think the best starting place to talk about with Saturday Super Seven is simply what it is. Tony McCormick and Telegram Tips refer to it as an “Exclusive Betting Guide For Saturday’s ‘Live’ TV Racing!”. And I suppose that is probably the best way of describing it. A betting guide. Unlike a lot of tipster services that will focus on providing select horses for certain races that meet their criteria for selection, this looks at everything.
The only “problem” with this, is that it only looks at everything one day a week. Saturday. Which is where the idea that this is aimed at a more casual punter comes in. For those who aren’t familiar, Saturdays on ITV 4 have a solid afternoon of racing covering various meets and races. It is also the only horse racing that is really shown on terrestrial TV. As such, if you’re a fan of the sport, it may be your only option to watch.
For a lot of people, it is also their afternoon’s entertainment. As I said in my introduction, there are a lot of casual racing fans out there that enjoy watching the sport. And the next level of horse racing (in my eyes) is having a bit of a bet on it. Because the only competition is in that one race. As such, the stakes can sometimes see a little lower than something like football with leagues and cups etc. Having a few quid on a race adds that extra intensity though.
But to a casual punter, the world of betting on horse racing can be intimidating. Saturday Super Seven offers a very real opportunity to get past this. Because the fact of the matter is that what Tony McCormick is putting out is something of genuine quality. Every Saturday you will receive an insight into all of the races that are being shown.
This is incredibly in depth and talks about the race itself, the shape of the race, different trends, and some of Tony McCormick’s insight into what you might expect from the horses. As well as this, there are a few different selections for a range of bet types. It really is an informative thing that will allow you to not just know where to bet, but with time, help you understand why to bet.
The analysis and article elements are invaluable really. They are, in many respects, what I wish that every tipster service would aspire to. Honestly, even if you don’t know a whole lot about horse racing, you can read through Saturday Super Seven and feel like you have some understanding of what is going on. That is something of a rarity in this sport.
What I really love about Saturday Super Seven though is the way Tony McCormick breaks down his bets. There are selections, Dutch selections, Each-Way selections, long shots, and various forecast bets. All of which are rated by Tony McCormick so you can understand your best options. But that isn’t why I like this. What I love about having all these different bet types is that, as a casual punter, you can decide which types of bets are right for you. This is a much better option than blindly following a tipster who, more likely than not, is in a much different position to you.
How Does Saturday Super Seven Work?
At the centre of everything with Saturday Super Seven is Tony McCormick. A man with “decades of experience in the racing industry” as well as claiming to be “one the UK’s leading statistician’s and trends specialists”. Whilst I’m a little less sure about that latter claim, there is no denying the fact that he has a pretty substantial CV. This includes various media roles looking at horse racing.
One of the things that I like about Saturday Super Seven though is, in many respects, you don’t have to take Tony McCormick’s and Telegram Tips’ word on any of this stuff. Because the logic behind a race is laid out for you on a week by week basis. Every single race receives a decent amount of coverage, and there is very little ignoring the fact that it’s almost impossible to come into a race and not know what you’re getting into.
Obviously, one of the biggest considerations with Saturday Super Seven is the fact that you are, to some degree, on your own. And this leads me to a very important point here. I have made reference a few times to this being on par with a tipster service, and I stand by that, but it isn’t quite the same thing either. It’s a bit of a complex beast, if I’m honest.
What I mean by this is that I ultimately see Saturday Super Seven as a tool. There is plenty of advice here, but what you do with it falls on you. This isn’t a tipster service where Tony McCormick is saying “this is what I’m doing and copy it”. It is a bit more modular and I quite like that. I feel there is a lot to be said for having some involvement in the decision making process for your betting. And the door is very wide open on that here. It just happens to be held open by a knowledgeable doorman.
What is the Initial Investment?
As you might expect for a service of this nature, Saturday Super Seven isn’t actually all that expensive. Telegram Tips have two different subscriptions available, each with different costs and value. A monthly subscription will cost you just £20 per month (which appears to be inclusive of VAT). Meanwhile, a quarterly subscription is just £45 per quarter. That puts it at just £3.75 per week.
I think it is important to note that there is no money back guarantee in place for Saturday Super Seven. This doesn’t count too much against the service as, ultimately, it is pretty much industry standard these days. However, Telegram Tips also provide a special trial period. This allows you to sign up for 2 weeks for just £1. More than enough time to see if Tony McCormick’s advice offers value to you.
What is the Rate of Return?
Talking about how much you can expect to make with something like Saturday Super Seven is a very difficult thing. Because it will ultimately depend on which bets you are backing. For example, Telegram Tips provide a number of examples of Tony McCormick’s winning bets. These range from 40/1 longshots to winners at just 9/4. Meanwhile, there are forecast and tricast bets that have made hundreds of pounds off £1 stakes.
But you could very easily have missed these bets depending on the approach that you wanted to take. There is also the additional consideration of the stakes involved. As such, some people might have made tens of thousands of pounds £10 stakes by backing forecast and tricast bets. Meanwhile, another might have just made about £90 sticking a fiver on Win Bets.
Conclusion for Saturday Super Seven
The fact that Saturday Super Seven is different to the norm is something that, in my mind, should really be celebrated. Especially because, on a fundamental level, it does so much right. But firstly, let’s address a few things. Now, these aren’t criticisms. I cannot stress that enough, but I do think that in order to really understand Saturday Super Seven, these things do sort of need to be talked about.
First things first. This really isn’t for everybody. Not even close to it, if I’m really honest. There really are so many people who just won’t really have the time or the inclination to take advantage of what Tony McCormick is offering here. And I can totally understand that. If you are simply looking to generate a hands off profit, this isn’t right for you. This is something that requires some time and a bit of effort.
With that out of the way, let’s go back to who this is really for. Personally, I don’t tend to watch the racing on ITV. But if I were going to, something like Saturday Super Seven would really add a lot to it in my opinion. It’s a bit like watching your favourite film with directors commentary. Having that little bit of extra insight and knowledge just adds a new level of appreciation for what is playing out in front of you. It’s just that here, you can potentially make some decent money too.
And that is a very important point here. Because as easy as it is to get caught up in how Saturday Super Seven works and what it does, ultimately, the main reason you would pay for this is because you want to make some extra money. I’ll be straight with you here. Unless you are backing everything, which is a potentially very expensive endeavour, there are limits to how much you can earn.
Straight away, there is the fact that there are only seven races covered (hence the name). This means that there are only seven opportunities a week to make a profit. That isn’t many. Meanwhile, there are a lot of bet types that just won’t prove all that consistent in terms of winners. In fact, many of them may not. As such, you can probably expect to see some weeks where you just spaff your money up the wall. But that is part of betting, if I’m honest.
But here is why I also think this works. Most of the more casual bettors I know aren’t betting for a profit per se. They do it for enjoyment, and they aren’t all that bothered if they win or lose. The betting is just there to add to an experience. And really, that is exactly what Saturday Super Seven does as well. It is there to add to an experience. Something that, ultimately, it does very well.
Which brings me to the question of whether or not Saturday Super Seven is worth it. If you are looking for a way solely to make a profit consistently, I can’t help but feel that there are much better options on the market. But if you are just looking for something a bit different to make your Saturday racing better… Well, this is a very good option.
Between the insight that it gives you, the betting advice you get, and the potential for profit. It is really something of quality. And for a fiver a week. Well, that’s not bad at all cost wise. Even if you don’t get anything out of it other than a good read, there is some value there. But if you are driven by anything other than entertainment though, I can’t help but feel like Saturday Super Seven is probably not going to be up your street.
