This service was recommended as worth a look following a successful trial period on Punt Hub which is a betting publisher run by Ben Horne who cut his teeth at Racing Investors Club and knows what to look for from all aspects of a service. Among the successes at Punt Hub have been Classic Racing Gold. All services on the site have been through a public test of at least 100 bets before charging begins and there is usually a low cost initial period available to allow a chance to look at a service before committing larger sums. Well worth a look at the Punt Hub site if you have a few minutes. Another positive is the full results disclosure for all the site services.
Selections are advised by email – the timing varies and there is no advice when there is not a bet for the day so you can never be quite sure what is happening. The emails are straightforward and offer a price based on availability at the time of sending. It is worth acting quickly on receipt as the starting prices tend to be lower. Staking is normally 1 point per selection – a 70 point bank is recommended – and the majority of bets are straight wins with each ways advised occasionally. There should be no problem in understanding the advised bet when received.
Quality not quantity seems to be the watchword here with 106 runners in a near 6 months review. With 33 selections producing a return the strike rate is a little over 31% and taking Best Odds prices as is the intention a profit of 16.49 points has been made at a respectable ROI of 15.57%. Average odds have been 6.42 ranging from 2.38 up to 26 with the best winner an each way offering at 9.0. Three consecutive winners were seen once with a longest losing run of 8.
If you take a look at the comparatives possible on the proofing the benefits of taking Best Odds Guaranteed prices are clearly demonstrated. Placing the bets at either SP or BSP would have all but halved the profitability of the service and it is always best for the cash to be in your pocket rather than the bookies.
The subscription level is a low end £25 per month after an introductory £15 and so during the review to date a cost of £140 would have been incurred. That equates to a £8.49 price per point profit which is not cheap. Clearly the author does not just pump out selections for the sake of it but betting at the UK average of £10 per point would not make this a worthwhile exercise.
A genuine service from a reputable publisher and which has the potential to prosper. Will classify as positive with a 4 star rating which reflects the marginal value element. We will continue to monitor and update regularly.
