Where to Buy:

How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A 100-point starting bank is recommended.

How Much Money Can I Make?

No specific claims made, but the website shows an average monthly profit of £115 to £10 stakes since the service launched in February 2018.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

Literally a couple of minutes each day when the selections are received. There are an average of two selections per day and the most we saw in the first month of the review was five for a Saturday’s racing.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

PC, laptop or mobile device with Internet access and accounts with a range of online bookmakers.

Value for Money?

As always, I will defer commenting on this until the end of the review period. The review eventually ended with a profit after three months. Betting at £10 per point stakes would have netted a 1.84% ROI of £41.71 after allowing for the cost of the subscription. At £50 per point these figures increase to 5.76% and £628.41 respectively. Based on these results, CD Racing is borderline on VFM if you are betting at £10 per point stakes.

Quality of Customer Service?

James Walsh and his team at Tipsters Empire place customer service at the forefront of everything they do and aim to deliver a first-class experience to members. My dealings with them have always been conducted in a professional, courteous and timely fashion.


CD Racing joined Tipsters Empire on 30th January this year and quickly established himself as a premium paid for service on the platform. CD Racing provides an average of two tips per day, although we have seen as many as five for a single Saturday, from the UK and Irish racing fixtures. Most tips are to win, although there are a sprinkling of each way selections too.

Staking is based on a points system, ranging from one to three points per selection. However, we didn’t see any three-point selections in the first month of the review as these are Christian’s absolute top tips. Each way selections have ranged from quarter of a point to one point each way.

Selections are sent by e-mail the evening before racing, generally between 20:00 and 21:30. The e-mails are extremely informative and thorough and contain a full analysis of each race being tipped, as well as a debrief on the performances of the previous day’s selections. The e-mail is laid out such that the review of the previous day appears first and the new selections follow on. I would rather see this flipped, so that the selections appear first, as these are what I want to act on straight away while the prices are still available. After a busy day there can be quite a substantial amount of review write ups to scroll through.

This is a very minor point and shouldn’t detract from the excellent content that is provided. Although one other small niggle I have is that when there are two selections in the same race they are listed in one sentence and it would be easy to miss one, especially if you are up against time, as I usually am! Simply splitting the two selections into two separate lines would make this element much clearer.

Christian describes himself as having “an analytical, rational approach to betting on horse racing” and being “dedicated to achieving profits for my members”. According to the web site, this approach has delivered average monthly profits of £115 (to £10 stakes) at an ROI (Return on Investment) of 13.93% and at a strike rate of 25.53% since February 2018. There is a full breakdown of results available on the site too.

CD Racing provide a blog of the big races which also serves as the analysis for any selections in that race.

Results – Month 1 (23rd July to 22nd August 2018)

CD Racing got off to a flying start to the review when he landed four out of four tips on 28th July to bag 22.25 points profit on the day. This was followed up with two of the next four selections also winning and left the cumulative profit at that point at 29.25 points. However, a run of 15 straight losses followed before the next winner. This winner also proved to be the last success of the month as we ended with an unbroken run of 23 straight defeats.

This all added up to a promising looking month actually ending with a loss of 7.25 points. Not a disaster in the grand scheme, but a bitter disappointment nonetheless given the start.
The strike rate for the month ended at 14.29%, having been over 40% earlier in the period.

The average odds of selections in this first month were 10.55 (between 9/1 and 10/1). However, there was an each way punt on a 150/1 shot which inflated this somewhat. Without that selection the average was 7.85 (towards 7/1). The average odds of the winning selections was very close to the overall average at 7.44 (c.13/2).

Results – Month 2 (23rd August to 22nd September 2018)

The long losing run we were on at the end of last month was halted by a place return from the first selection this time around. However, it was scant consolation before a further six losers followed until the first winner in 31 attempts finally arrived in the form of Mulligatawny on 28th August. However, this too was to prove only a flickering bright spot as a further 15 consecutive losing selections followed. Thankfully, the last two weeks of the period showed a marked improvement as the near 20-point loss for the month was reduced to just 3.04, and it could have been so much better but for a further unbroken run of six losing selections to close out Month 2.

Overall, Month 2 delivered 12 winners from 61 selections, a strike rate of 19.67%. The average odds of the winning selections this month was 5.27 (a little over 4/1). This was significantly down, over two-clicks in fact, on the average winning odds from the previous month. But the higher strike rate meant the loss was not dissimilar.

The combined loss for the first two months of the review now stands at 10.29 points, so whilst not a complete disaster it is not what CD Racing would have wanted to show during the review period. We will need to see a significant improvement in the final month to get anywhere near the 11.5 points per month average profits claimed historically. But given the performance in the first half of Month 1 it is not out of the question.

Results – Month 3 (23rd September to 22nd October 2018)

The improvement in performance in the second-half of last month continued into the final month of the review and we saw nigh on 25 points of profit this period. This was built on an improved strike rate of 26.58%, which came from more selections overall and maintained the average price of winning selections at just over 4/1 (5.34). The long losing runs which had blighted the first two months of the review were also alleviated, with a run of six consecutive losers the worst we experienced in this period.

Mot Juste (14/1) and Low Sun (9/1) were the big priced winners in the month and were both tipped as 1/2 point each way selections. The winning selections this period ranged in price from 3.0 (2/1) up to the 15.0 (14/1) on Mot Juste.

Overall, the profit from the three months of the review was 14.67 points. This equates to an average monthly profit of just under five-points, still below the historic average of 11.5-points per month claimed. However, the second-half of Month 2 and Month 3 showed that the service is clearly capable of delivering 20+ points profit in a month. With neither of the two losing months being particularly severe, the historic average claimed is well within reach over a longer sample period.

The ROI (Return on Investment) across the three-months was 6.79%, which nets down to 1.84% at £10 per point stakes or 5.76% at £50 per point after deducting the cost of the subscription. 

Summary at end of Month 1

In the bigger picture, a loss of 7.25 points in the first month of a three-month trial isn’t a disaster, but we were spoilt somewhat by the start to this month. Given the performance in the early part of the month, and the profits secured in June and July that I witnessed through the Tipster League (, I would be surprised if Christian doesn’t break this poor run and return the service to profitability in Month 2 of the review.

Summary at End of Month 2

Ultimately another small loss for the month. If we could have had the second half of this month with the first half of Month 1 we would have been looking at a profit in the region of 40-45 points. But we didn’t!  So we hope that in the final month Christian can alleviate the losing runs and deliver a tasty profit to finish.

Summary at End of Month 3

As anticipated, Christian continued the improvement from Month 2 into the final month and delivered an overall profit for the review period of 14.67 points. This service is well worth a longer-term view in my opinion, but based purely on the three months of the review I am going to award CD Racing a 3-star rating.
