Created by Richard Churchill (aka Owen Churchill), Bet Richard is a horse racing tipster service from the ex-bookmaker.
What is the product?
Bet Richard is a horse racing tipster service that specialises in providing win bets to subscribers. What really stands out about this is the man behind the service. Richard Churchill (previously known as Owen Churchill) was brought up on 23 charges by the HRA in 2006 with 20 of these ultimately being proved. Now releasing a tipster service the controversial figure has released a tipster service based on his still intact network of informants and friends. Whilst it is refreshing that Richard Churchill is open on his website about these charges and the outcome, the lack of statistics or proofing is. In fact what little information that there is on Bet Richard is about the guys past, not what he is doing now. This I find rather concerning as most reputable tipsters sell their services on the back of figures rather than personality.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
Bet Richard is available for £27 which buys you either a 6 or 12 month subscription when you sign up. This is unclear as the site itself says a 6 month subscription but the item description on PayPal states that it is 12 months. Either way, there is no money back guarantee, something which is rather typical for a tipster service. In terms of income, there are no results posted and no claims made. Whilst Richard Churchill says that he has become a millionaire by being involved in horse racing there is no way of saying whether that includes his prior excursions.
Does the product provide value for money?
Depending on whether you are comfortable taking risks, Bet Richard may prove to be a bargain although I wouldn’t like to commit either way on this one.
Addressing the elephant in the room, the most obvious concern about Bet Richard is the history of the man. It is clearly questionable to say the least and the lack of results does nothing to reassure. In fact, it feels like Bet Richard has been designed to ride the coat tails of the name and the man as that is the focus of the sales material. As I said this is one for the risk takers. If Bet Richard can deliver what is advertised this is a steal, but in my eyes this is a pretty big if.
