The Jolly Punter is a horse racing tipster service from “Billy”. It uses multiple types of system to generate selections which allegedly make it more successful.
What does the product offer?
The Jolly Punter is a fairly typical email based service that provides users with daily selections for horse races. Billy makes no historic records available so it is very difficult to advise on things like number of bets, strike rates and so on. I have however carried out some research into The Jolly Punter and based off this there should be around 2 selections per day and the strike rate has been shockingly low with just one win in twenty being reported.
How does the product work?
Funnily enough despite an unwillingness to publish any information about how The Jolly Punter performs, Billy is very happy to talk about the systems that he uses. These eschew form and instead look at track records in a number of things from pace to the surface with the second system also looking at weather and the like. The third system looks at rather obscure factors such as the feed, the distance a horse as run under a trainer and such like.
What is the initial investment?
The Jolly Punter is available on a subscription basis for £14.99 per month. There is no mention of any money back guarantee so I wouldn’t anticipate anything like this.
What is the rate of return?
Billy claims that The Jolly Punter has made a profit of £13,638 since January but there is no proofing or evidence of this, nor is there mention of stakes saying that they are simply “level”.
For me there isn’t enough evidence that The Jolly Punter does what it advertises to make this a viable tipster service. The fact that Billy is open about his selection process is refreshing but ultimately this doesn’t count for anything if you can’t show that it works. This leads me to my second sticking point which is that my research shows that this is a service that simply isn’t delivering.
This could just be a rough patch for the tipster behind The Jolly Punter, but I am not sold on this explanation. Personally I would avoid The Jolly Punter, despite some very competitive pricing, in favour of a proven tipster.
