Tipster Street has been around for a good while now and they do not allow a service to be sold under their name until they have completed at least a 3 month proofing process. Services always show their results on site with prompt up-dates .
This service was heralded as all but unbelievable having seen profits of 3000 points pre launch and this with 1 point stakes at BSP. A betting bank of 250 points was recommended and we are advised that an average of 6 bets daily are seen, more in the summer months. Selections are sent by email mid morning on the day of racing and as noted are intended to be placed at BSP using the Exchange so there will be no question of accounts being limited. No analysis is provided and for reasons which will become clear shortly the selections appear to be system based.
You can tell quite a lot from the way selections and services are presented. There have been several careless advices for this service including 2 days when the meetings had been cancelled hours before the tips were sent. We also had some tips where rather than advise a stake of more than 1 point the selections were just repeated which initially makes you wonder if it is an error.
The number of selections advised has been enormous. The highest number on any one day was 49 – yes you read that right! – and in some 9 years of reviewing I have never seen so many selections for a service. The impression given was of a scattergun approach in the hope that some would be successful and indeed the overall strike rate though some 4 months has been 20.5% which is not far below the pre launch experience. However, the winners have tended to come at the low end of the odds range and despite a brief upturn in January the overall loss at BSP has been 145.75 points. The service does offer a good example of the variation between BSP and industry odds, the latter showing an even greater loss. I note that the service website now suggests a bank of 500 points which has not been advised to existing clients. I would respectfully suggest that any service needing a 500 point bank is one to be treated with the utmost caution especially where we are talking 1 point staking.
Of late the number of selections has reduced dramatically and the losses stemmed to a degree. Whether this will be maintained through the busier flat season is now a matter for pure conjecture and it will be a brave punter who does anything more than watch.
In the light of these results we have no option but to regard the service as failed and cannot recommend subscribing at this time.
