The Winning Tipsters is an email based independent horse racing tipster service offered by tipsters Gavin and Ben. They claim that the service has proven very profitable since its launch.
What does the product offer?
The Winning Tipsters is a horse racing tipster service offered by “Gavin and Ben”, a pair of independent tipsters from the North East of England. Their service is based around limiting liabilities whilst offering the best possible value bets with The Winning Tipsters claiming to have picked out 40/1 winners, 100/1 doubles and “other big priced winners. The pair say that The Winning Tipsters will very rarely recommend more than a 12 point liability in a day (this is usually around 9/10 points). The bets that Gavin and Ben recommend to The Winning Tipsters subscribers is varied covering things like winners, doubles and each way. This should help them to achieve their claimed average odds of 4/1.
How does the product work?
The selection process for The Winning Tipsters isn’t really discussed outside of saying that selections are chosen after hours of research. On top of this, Gavin and Ben claim to have a combined twenty years of experience. No doubt The Winning Tipsters draws heavily on this alleged experience. They also claim that some of The Winning Tipsters tips come directly from some yards, presumably through contacts that they have made through owning their own racing horse, Mister Hendre (although interestingly according to the Racing Post neither Gavin nor Ben are listed as the owner, nor is Susan Corbett listed as the trainer).
What is the initial investment?
One of the stronger points of The Winning Tipsters is the price point with Gavin and Ben charging a very reasonable £9 per month. There is no money back guarantee mentioned but this is common place with tipster services and so doesn’t really count against The Winning Tipsters. On top of the costs of the service a betting bank will be required which should be 100 points.
What is the rate of return?
The Winning Tipsters has allegedly made a points profit of 1788.6 points since September 2013 with the lion’s share of this profit coming from Ben’s tips. Unfortunately there is no proofing to back this up with the only “evidence” being a spreadsheet that shows how much each tipster allegedly made each month. This works out at an average 105.2 points per month or £1052 to £10 stakes.
The Winning Tipsters is a very mixed bag with two distinctive ways of looking at it. The cynical viewpoint is that there is a distinctive lack of evidence to back up many of the claims that are made. This is particularly problematic when you look at the results. Alternatively you can view The Winning Tipsters as a cheap and cheerful tipster service that should be able to generally turn a decent product if the results are correct. One of the things that I find curious is the claimed ownership of a horse that The Racing Post says is owned by H Jones and trained by Peter Bowen. Whilst there may be an explanation for this discrepancy, given the lack of proofing it does cast something of a shadow over The Winning Tipsters in my opinion.
