The eagle eyed among you will have noted that the original 7 day free trial available for this service has now been replaced by a paid for option. This is a result of punters abusing the free trial offer by trying to sign up again and again using different emails so I hope those cheapskates are happy that they have denied others the opportunity to look at what the service has to offer without risk.
The home page gives a good overview of what is offered by the service with the option to drill down for more information as you require. Run by Martin Wilkins, he explains his passion for sports in general and how he has developed this into an ability to pick consistent winners – the service concentrates mainly on horse racing but your subscription will offer all the betting that is recommended. It is stressed that those looking for high priced bets would be better going elsewhere. Refreshingly, full results are shown on the site in an easy to follow format.
Selections are advised by email and are also available on a password protected members page on the website. Selections are published no later than midday but have been received the evening before racing on occasion. The bet recommended is clear and the prices quoted are generally available and can sometimes be bettered.
A betting bank of 500 points is recommended and it is suggested that a minimum monetary bank of £500 is required to take full advantage of the service. Staking is advised with each individual bet thus far in multiples of 10 points – the stake is based upon the confidence level for a selection. We have seen an average of 4 selections a day so far in the trial. The results so far (which can be seen here: GreatBetsR.xls) have been split into 2 tabs on the spreadsheet – horse racing and other sports.
Of the 127 selections in the trial to date 9 have been for non horse racing events and 8 of those on football plus an inspired tip for John Higgins to beat the Rocket in the snooker world. Overall the other sports tips have made a small 5 point loss
Turning to the horse racing there have been 118 runners with 38 successful – a strike rate of 32.2%. This after a slightly worrying end of December where we saw a draw down of 50% of the bank but in the end the performance has been strong with a 512 point profit at a respectable 13.01% ROI. A losing run of 16 is the worst experienced with 3 consecutive winners at best. As indicated in the website information the selections tend to be at the top end of the market with average odds around 3.7, the highest priced winners being at 7.0.
This is an impressive start for the trial with a capital gain of around 50% achieved which if maintained will make this a must have service. Priced at the higher end of the market the premium has thus far been justified. The service felt right from the outset with no undue hype and a professional approach to everything. We will continue to monitor and update the review in February. For those who like a straightforward, easy to follow service then we suggest you should take a good look at this one.
Although month 2 of the trial has not seen the level achieved in month 1 there has still been a profit made and many of the services we see would be trumpeting their performance from the tree tops if it matched these. Here Martin is saying he is not so happy with the outcome and will strive to do better. Right attitude certainly and he is generating trust in the potential which is ever welcome.
Only a couple more other sports tips seen which lost (20 points staked) and the overall horse racing situation is now 76 winners from 222 runners (34.2%) and a 683 point profit at an ROI of 9.67%.
The thread has seen a debate on taking the price when the selections are advised or waiting for BSP. Quite why anyone would do the latter is a bit of a mystery as the service has not advised this. If your bookmaker accounts are restricted then it would make sense to take the Betfair price early – the service has detailed comparative results for a period and it seems that the maximum profit is to be gained by using bookmaker accounts where the benefit of BOG can be obtained.
This genuine service looks to have the makings of a sound element of a betting portfolio and we will report again in March. Well worth a look in our view.

A very large hiccough in February where an overall loss was recorded for the month, the first time since the service was launched. Those joining at that time must have had their faith severely tested but it is good to report that we seem to have come through the storm and profits have been restored.
A small profit was achieved on the sports bets since the last update and we are now just 15 points down overall for these (limited) selections.
For the horses we now have 112 winners from 329 runners (34%) and the starting bank is all but doubled. The ROI has taken a bit of a hit with the poor run and now stands at 8.7%. I have added a chart to the spreadsheet which shows the rather irregular pattern of the service exacerbated somewhat by a period of higher than usual staking in February. But the trend is north and Martin has shown he can deal with a poor run which can be the undoing of many tipsters.
We will continue to monitor the service which still looks to have good long term potential. Next update will be in April.

It seems as though we were in the eye of the storm at the time of my last update as we saw a drawdown of 150% of the original starting bank and as noted by a member on the thread a starter at the peak would have seen the recommended bank wiped out. The impression was given to followers that losses were being chased and a foray into the first day of the Irish flat season was disastrous. Again there has been a partial recovery but the confidence of subscribers will have taken a significant blow which may be difficult to restore. (There has been nothing advised on the Sports side in the last month.)
Overall we now have 150 winners from 485 runners (30.9%) and are showing a capital profit of 44.5%. The ROI has fallen further to a mere 2.59% which will take some time to restore to acceptable levels. The graphic extract shows the very bumpy ride that subscribers have experienced.
The author did write to subscribers and accept responsibility for some strategic errors in the selections which is often not the case. The next 2 months are critical now to see if former glories can be restored and the expensive price tag justified. A good example of the need to look at things long term before risking your cash. The initial signs were positive and it may not be too late – let’s hope this genuine service can recover fully.
