Just to let you know I joined your service this week for a month. Great service, I'm far from an expert on horses but how you picked ' Yasir' at 16/1 and American life in the 2 selections today was brilliant.
I had an ew double on them. Also some great winners in the past few days. I'll be on board with a years membership when my month is up.
Well done , keep up the great work.
Every selection comes with a detailed analysis of why the horse has been tipped and why it represents value odds
For example this from January 20th 2020 ...
"As a rule, I’m led by the formbook, or more accurately, the evidence of past races, but sometimes there are other pointers which can’t be ignored. Pedigree and trainer form can be extremely useful in analysing inexperienced horses, and both those aspects combine to produce a bet in the opening bumper at Gosforth Park.
Backing the offspring of Passing Glance in bumpers since 2016 has been a profitable pursuit, with ten wins from 89 runners giving a profit of £615.60 at Betfair SP, and both the strike-rate and ROI is higher when that is confined to debutants. The sire is not the most fashionable, and many of his debut winners are sent off at quite fancy odds as a result. He is responsible for Miss Lamb (12:55 Newcastle - Nap), and while that stat is perhaps not enough to back Jedd O’Keeffe’s mare to any more than modest stakes, it’s the dam’s side of the family which is of most interest for backers. Miss Lamb, who races in the colours of her breeder, Sally Hall, comes from a family with a remarkable record when seeing the course for the first time.
Miss Lamb’s dam is a half-sister to five winners, namely Master Lamb, Lord Lamb, My Lamb, Sir Lamb and Byron Lamb. Of that quintet, four won on their bumper debuts, and the other didn’t race in bumpers, but won on his first start as a hurdler. True to form, Lucinda Lamb has produced just one winner to date, but that winner, Tom Lamb, won a bumper on his first public outing, and Lucinda Lamb’s full-sister has also produced a debut bumper winner from just three foals to race. In fairness, it should be pointed out that the majority of the family don’t win at all, but those who do are almost all able to do so at the first attempt.
In terms of trainer form, O’Keeffe isn’t making many headlines with stable star Sam Spinner out for the season, and he’s not sent out too many runners over jumps this winter. In fact, since the start of November, he has had just 14 runners under National Hunt rules. It’s impressive then, to note that five of those 14 have won, and another three have finished second, including one of very few bumper runners.”
Mrs Lamb was advised as a 1 point win bet at 10/1 and won at 13/2
A Good Honest Service with no Advised Price Shenanagins
Value Bets at Prices Available to All
“The aim is to provide selections which can easily be backed at the advised prices, and standout prices are never quoted. As a rule, the price must be available with at least two of the bookmakers included in the oddschecker price grid, and ideally with two of the recognised big firms.
The bets don’t go out until after 11am to ensure that the market is big enough and that prices aren’t disappearing – again, the goal is satisfied subscribers, not mythical profits. At least half the bets are where the price is available with most firms, although late non-runners can make this tricky at times.
I’d like to think that most subscribers could get matched on the exchanges at similar or bigger prices."
Well that’s the weans Christmas pressies taken care of.
Many thanks Rory, hope you and the family have a great Christmas."
What you need to understand about these previews is who is a good tipster and who is just knowledgeable and puts up the semi obvious? Some panel members do not get that upsets happen at the festival every year and so should look for the less obvious. I think that from the group above, Rory Delargy is a good tipster whereas the others are knowledgeable but not great tipsters. I think that Rory sees the bigger picture more" https://racingtoprofit.co.uk/2020/02/17/apchat-2/#comments
What You Get...
Daily bulletins which are generally sent out around 11.30 – 12.00 each morning detailing the day’s best bets covering the flat turf/AW and also the jumping action. The full rationale as to why they have been selected can be read in a detailed blog in the members’ area.
Selections are never given out if under 2/1, and the average stake is 2-3pts each day, so we suggest a minimum 100pt betting bank should be set aside to cope with the ups and downs along the journey.

Nice one, Rory. Was screaming at Mr Orr to stop looking behind him on the run-in, but did it pretty comfortably to be fair. Pity the sods at Unibet refused the bet, so I had to take “only” 28s elsewhere.
