Review  14/2/2017:

When a tipster asks that you review his service it must be viewed as a positive both in terms of their confidence in their ability and that they are not trying to hide anything. Dean has been developing his systems for some time and after a year showing good profits privately has decided it is time to go public – I believe we are the first site to look at his performance.

The service website is comprehensive and offers advice on many aspects of betting as well as the service details. Subscribers will receive an email with the days selections – normally late morning on the day of racing – and are also able to access the tips through a special area on the site. Dean also offers subscribers a daily competition where a selection of 100% winners for the specified races will gain free race tickets.

There are 4 distinct elements to the service, win bets, place win bets, lay win bets and lay place bets. There are not necessarily selections on each element every day but subscribers will see everything available across the spectrum. A betting bank of 200 points is suggested with each bet a 1 point stake using the progressive calculation method. We will calculate outcomes based on the initial point value. The place bet advices specify the number of runners market to be used with the standard taken as read if nothing mentioned.


Win Betting Selections:

With 57 runners and 17 winners the performance here has been patchy with a drawdown of up to 12 points seen and currently a loss of 9 points at BSP. If using BOG prices at the time of selection advice the loss is just 2 points. Prices have ranged from odds on to 43.75, most at the top end of the market and the best priced winner was 5.9 (BOG 7.5) with a winning run of 3 consecutive selections seen. The worst losing streak is 8 runners. So far the weakest area of the service.

Place Wins:

A more selective offering for these with 23 selections of which 7 were successful giving a 2.4 point profit at an ROI of 6.34%. With the low prices involved in these markets that is a fair performance but there is little room for error. Best winning streak 5 against just 2 consecutive losers but a very small sample.

Lay Bets (Win Market):

The most prolific area of tipping with some 232 runners so far of which 180 were successful (77.6%). A maximum price of 20.0 is advised to limit risk which some may consider a bit on the high side but the vast majority of selections go off under 10 the average being around 5.5 with the highest price winner being 11.5. A poor run at the end of January led to a draw down of 19 points but there has been a recovery with a run of 13 successful bets and we are now showing a profit of 15.6 points at an ROI of 6.53%. The number of selections means you would potentially need a large bank if placing them all at once or to minimise the requirement you could use a bot. There are free options available as well as low cost solutions. The service does indicate the best 2 or 3 lays in their view which could be used as a means of reducing the bet numbers. We have not evaluated the success of these alone.

Lay Place:

Most selections have been in the 2 place market with a total of 30 runners and 20 successful. However the limited liquidity for the alternative place markets have probably meant higher odds being taken than might be hoped for. Unless using the main place market it is not possible to use a BSP option so you either take the price when advised (as we have) or hope there might be some reduction. A profit of 2.4 points has been made without any undue alarm.


Taken as a whole the service has made 11.4 points profit using BSP for the wins or 18.4 if taking bookmaker odds. After the poor run at the end of January this is a good recovery although at the normal sub rate the cost of around £5 per point profit(BSP) is on the high side. That said you can test things out at no risk with the guarantee offered and there is no doubt the service is genuine. If last year’s performance is repeated then the value will be there. We will continue to monitor and update the review in Mid March.

Best Bets 4 Profit Results

Update 6/4/2017: The promising start has not been maintained with all 4 segments now showing a loss on the starting bank – in all about 25 points.

The wins had 2 losing runs of 12 bets and are now 13 points adrift at BOG prices, 23 at BSP while the place wins are just over 1 point down with 37 wins from 59 runners. This may vary a bit by user as with the use of the minor place markets liquidity is often limited and prices will move around.

Biggest disappointment was the lay bets where a profit of around 46 points has all been dissipated and we are now seeing a loss of 6 points. The author admitted he had chased losses with a view to rescuing the March outcome but this misfired. The place lays have subsided to a 4.5 point loss during the second period of the review.

Dean has taken a few days off to recheck his strategies which is probably wise but you must wonder why this should be necessary if the past performance was as successful as claimed. There is an undoubted additional pressure on a tipster when they go live and it may be that this has been the issue here.

For now there is a long way to go to generate the confidence that would be needed to follow the selections with your own cash but being a genuine service I am sure Dean will be trying to achieve this. For now we cannot recommend subscribing but we will continue to monitor for a further period.
