There is a school of thought that asserts that nothing ever sold through Clickbank is worthwhile. Granted many vendors use this payment portal because they know that without it they would be unlikely to achieve any sales but in First Favourite Service we may just have found the exception that proves the rule.
The author has been earning his living from betting for many years and his enthusiasm for the subject is evident at all points in the process from looking at the website to the daily selection advices. It is very clear from the website what type of service you are being asked to join and if you choose to do so then there is support available for you if you have any questions about the way to use the service. The emphasis is on winning bets rather than quantity and whilst the prices may not be that long a regular return is far more use than the odd high priced winner. Past results are fully disclosed on the site and are also proofed to Best Tipping.
All bets advised are for win only and you are advised to stake 10% of your rolling bank on each selection. At the end of each month any profit is taken out and so you start again with the original bank.
In almost two and a half years I have seen 259 selections of which 144 have won their race – a strike rate of 55.6%which is pretty much in line with the historical performance. This has produced capital profits of 324.6% of the starting bank at an ROI of over 11% and long term clients will be very satisfied. There has been a slow and adverse period in mid 2017 but nothing disastrous and it could be argued that now is the time to join as the better times should not be far away.
A recent addition to the service is a Trends Bonus system where Mel looks at the major meetings and makes recommendations based on past race trends. This has proved a profitable exercise thus far and compensated for a very quiet time in the main service. A much reduced exposure is recommended here – a 25 point bank with point value suggested at 10% of main service value. The results for this element of the overall service are detailed on the PDF download and in summary at the end of September 2017 are showing a 20.97 point profit from 61 runners of which 11 have won and 34 placed.
Much emphasis is placed on the fact that you are copying the author’s personal betting and so he shares your pain and success. The selective nature of the service has proved successful thus far and even a starting bank as low as £500 would have seen the subscription covered over the period I have been receiving the selections. I regard the service as a good starting point for setting up a betting portfolio – this is low risk and with a proven track record is well worth consideration.
Update October 2017
A very quiet period for the main service with just 4 bets of which 2 won and generated a small 0.61 point profit. The weekly activity summaries have highlighted the changeable ground conditions with the amount of rain seen bringing fields much more closely matched and hence fewer opportunities.
The newer Trends bonus covering the top class meetings has been more active with 12 recommended bets, mostly each way but has not managed to continue the profitable trend with a 5.5 point loss (the reduced staking advised would mean this is about 1 point at main service levels).
As ever the author is careful with his client’s cash and overall no real harm done with potential for profit remaining.
Update 31 December 2017
Very telling that there have only been 5 bets advised in the past 2 months. The variable weather and hence ground conditions are the main factor in this situation but to long term followers of the service it will not have been a surprise. What never happens here is betting for the sake of it and although there have been losses made recently they are manageable and should not have dented confidence in the potential.
The author offers a weekly commentary on the performance and racing in general which is useful for clients. He has continued to offer the Trends Bonus bets which have shown a profit since their introduction. My advice to more recent subscribers would be to stay with things here. The service is professionally run and will doubtless come through this fallow period to reap a good harvest again.
Another very quiet period with just 11 bets in the quarter. With just 4 winning a poor outcome (-5.2 points) which the author is quick to acknowledge and assures his clients that things will be restored. I should be very surprised if this were not the case given the long history here. And subscribers now have the added Trends bets which have been profitable during the quarter (+11 points) and which should mitigate the main service to a degree.
Arguably a good time to join the service after the first time a loss has been experienced in the first 3 months of a year.
A welcome return to profitability in May and June for the main service. Not at all unexpected and it appears that a change in the way in which races are scheduled has led to a reduction in the number of races that are often the source of Mel’s winners. He will doubtless find a means of ensuring his clients are still happy.
I continue to regard the service as a cornerstone for any betting portfolio which you may check out entirely risk free with the guarantee available.
The change to the race scheduling has had a major impact on the service – only 10 selections possible in 3 months through the summer which compares to 30 in the same period 2 years ago. The strike rate has been 50% which has led to a loss of just over 1 point in the quarter for the core service. The Trends Bonus selections have continued covering the high quality meetings.
I understand that there has been a rethink of the changes made to the race scheduling which Mel hopes will allow more running chances for the horses he needs for selections. In turn this should prove good news for First Favourite clients whose interests are clearly his first concern.
