Created by Gavin and Ben, The Winning Tipsters is an independent horse racing tipster service. Selections are sent out to users via email.
What is the product?
The Winning Tipsters is a tipster service that has been established since September 2013 during which time the creators say that it has achieved considerable success. Gavin and Ben say that The Winning Tipsters has been designed in such a fashion that it limits a users liability (with the pair rarely exceeding 12 points risked in a single days betting) whilst still allowing them to maximise profits for The Winning Tipsters subscribers. This is achieved by looking to extract the best value bets (the average odds for The Winning Tipsters are claimed to be 4/1) with Gavin and Ben claiming to have had 40/1 wins and even 100/1 doubles coming in although The Winning Tipsters isn’t entirely comprised of these bets with each way bets getting a look in as well. Selections for The Winning Tipsters are claimed to come from hours of research although this could realistically translate to almost anything. No doubt Gavin and Ben also draw heavily on their claimed 20 years of betting experience whilst also getting tips from some of the yards allegedly. This appears to be achieved through the pair allegedly owning a race horse, Mister Hendre that is in training with one Susan Corbett.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
Priced at just £9 per month Gavin and Ben have made The Winning Tipsters one of the more competitively priced tipster services on the market. There is nothing in place in terms of a money back guarantee however given the fact that most tipster services don’t offer this it is hardly a deal breaker. On top of the cost of subscribing, it is advised that you have a 100 point betting bank in place for The Winning Tipsters. The profits are claimed to be rather exceptional with 1788.6 points of profit generated between the two since The Winning Tipsters went live. Unfortunately no evidence is provided to bank this up. There is a spreadsheet detailing Gavin’s and Ben’s profits and losses (Ben comes out better off by a long way) but this is all that there is which I find to be rather off putting.
Does the product provide value for money?
Whilst The Winning Tipsters is definitely cheap, and if it makes what it claims is in fact a bargain, I have some doubts as to the ability of this service to deliver for reasons that I shall explore below.
Quite a big thing is made about The Winning Tipsters owning a horse with a full page dedicated to Mister Hendre. Unfortunately when you look at this horse in The Racing Post it is listed as being owned by one H Jones and that it is being trained by Peter Bowen. There are three possible reasons for this discrepancy which are as follows. One is that they part own the horse and H Jones is the majority holder. Alternatively, H Jones could simply be a registered owner for the sake of paper work. Finally, Gavin and Ben may have sold the horse. Either way, the fact that they keep a page on their website that insinuates that they own a horse seems questionable. Especially when paired with the lack of proof. Whilst The Winning Tipsters seems a little off to me and I wouldn’t personally invest, I can still see how low costs and high profits may lure in those who don’t mind running a risk.
