I have noticed that more and more clients have been getting fed up with their advisory services especially after reading certain Facebook comments regarding losing runs, short priced horses and too many selections.
Most comments probably come from people that don’t understand the game or are looking for a get rich quick scheme however some posts did ring true so I will endeavour to give you what I consider sound advice.
When you look for a tipster to follow only get involved if you have the funds to see you through losing runs. Never be swayed by hype from new tipsters who tell you they never have losing runs or bad periods as every tipster on the planet does from time to time.
Do not fall for tipsters who tell you they make thousands of points every year as when looking closely at their figures it might be they have staked enormous amounts to make these profits.
You must always consider return on investment the most important factor when choosing a tipster to follow. In my opinion league tables for tipsters should reflect that as much as points profit.
Another very important factor is that the majority of tipsters do not treat their services as businesses and are just as much gamblers as their clients.
I’m more mature than most and have been round the block a few times. In my younger days I ran a clothing factory for Marks and Spencer and at a later date an advertising business for major supermarkets and I now treat my betting business in the same way.
This is why my Betting Opportunity is so successful and achieved an R.O.I. of 82% in January.
The other vital ingredient is try to stick with tipsters who have been around for some years and have proven track records rather than get sucked into going for the new kid on the block.
After all if a bank gives out a loan would they rather give the money to a tried and tested business or a new start up company?
Also consider if you have been with a reliable tipster but left because they had a bad run you would be far better re joining rather than join some new service that comes out of the woodwork.
I hope this gives you food for thought.
Moving swiftly on to Howies Hottie I’m playing in the 4.45 Kempton on Rakaan now in the care of Brendan Powell.
The gelding is not as good as he was in his pomp but has been running well on the polytrack. He reverts to a mile which I think is his best trip and holds each way claims.
Well they have been in cracking form last week with 4 winners. Temple Road, Sea Soldier, Monsieur Chevalier and Le Reve.
NOT BAD FOR FREE TIPS
Willie Wag Tail trainer E.Walker – Led for most of the trip at Chelmsford and a return to 12 furlongs can do the trick.
Trimoulet trainer D.Kubler – A giant of a horse who is just finding his feet after last weeks success.
Berrahri trainer J.Best – On a favourable mark and can win a low grade contest.
Miami Gator trainer K.Burke – Just a matter of time before this front runner hits the target.
Final Drive trainer J.Butler – Well handicapped old timer who is best at a mile or 10 furlongs.
Albert Bridge trainer Emma Lavelle – He loves soft ground and can win a handicap hurdle on his favoured conditions.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
