My Racing tips post many tips per day, including singles, two large accumulators, each-way doubles, early-value tips, lucky 15s and a nap of the day. Tips are normally posted at 8:45 AM and you can follow all the tips via their Twitter page throughout the day. Due to the large range of bet types, this trial will be broken down into bet type, rather than month by month.
Win Accumulator – For this they usually get together 3 favourites across the day and put them into an accumulator. The ‘suggested’ stake for this is £10. It’s one of my least favourite parts about their tips. It’s never been a profitable strategy to stick some short priced favourites into an accumulator and that hasn’t changed. I saw it happen a lot where two out of the three won, however it means nothing when you put them in a multiple together. The ROI over our review period for the ‘Win accumulator’ was -1.24%
Mega Odds Acca – It’s as bad as it sounds. Here, they grab a few more favourites and second favourites, and then they put them in an accumulator generally with pretty high odds. They suggest a £5 stake for this. A real poor way to bet and I think they are just trying to appease a portion of the betting community here by posting bets like this. The ROI for this was -100%
NAP – This is quite simply their most fancied pick of the day. They suggest a £20 stake for their NAP and it generally is quite a short priced pick. The ROI for their NAPs was -17.86%
Early Value Tip – Doesn’t seem to be much different to a standard single. But I would assume they call it this as they feel the price will be cut throughout the day. The ROI for the early value tip was 50.96%
Win Lucky 15 – This is a simple Lucky 15 bet. For this they take 4 selections to be put into this, suggesting a £1 bet (£15 stake in total). A Lucky 15 consists of 15 bets involving 4 selections in different events. The bet includes 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles, and 1 fourfold. The ROI for the Win Lucky 15 was 57.53%
Each Way Double – For this selection they pick two horses, usually at prices around 5/1 and above, they then put these into an each way double. The suggested stake for this is £5 each way, so £10 will be staked in total. One bet from this category saved them completely, making them over £300 profit in one bet. I do however feel as though in the long run they are losing out putting them in a double, rather than making them two singles. The ROI for the each way double was 148.7%
Race Previews – For this section they will take a number of tips, usually 1-3 and will post a small write up alongside the selection. I’ve always been a fan of an explanation with the bets, as it allows us to understand the tipsters’ thought process to see why they have made the particular selection. They landed a few decent bets through their race previews, and the total ROI came to 95%
Singles – Does what it says on the tin. They post a handful of singles for meets across the day. The odds completely vary here, some longshot outsiders and some favourites. There is no stake suggested for each of these, but I calculated the P/L using £10 per bet. The ROI for these were –5.56%
