A betting bank of 250-points is recommended by Betfan for this service.

How Much Money Can I Make?

Value for Money?

As always, I will wait until the completion of the review period before I offer an assessment on this. No!

Quality of Customer Service?

Has the backing and support of the Betfan platform. Requests for support are made via the support ticket system on the website. I have always received a quick and professional response when using the Betfan support system to set up reviews.


Choice Tips is run by James Calvert on the Betfan platform and was launched in April 2019.

According to the website, James has over 45 years experience of horse racing and spends two to three hours a day researching and studying before spending a further one to two hours finalising his selections for the day. The selections are then released to members before eight o’clock each morning.

As well as through the daily email, tips can also be accessed in the members’ area of the website and via the Betfan app. The email advice is slightly enhanced from the standard Betfan format in as much as James provides a sentence or two on each of the selections. Aside from that you get the race details, selection, bet type, stake, advised odds and bookmakers offering those odds.

Although the service started off using one to five-point stakes it now appears to have gone to flat five-point stakes on all selections.

The Choice Tips marketing page on Betfan shows 177 points profit between April and August 2019, that’s an average monthly return of 35.4 points. However, 137 points of that total is attributed to the launch month of April. There is no mention of the return on investment (ROI) that has been achieved.

Results – Month 1 (1st August to 31st August 2019)

The period got off to a flying start with two winners on the first day at 5/1 and 11/4. Regular winners continued in the first half of the month and the profit reached a high of 65-points just before the mid-point. However, a run of 18 consecutive losses (by now all at five-point stakes) undid all the good work, and despite a resurgence that saw the profit back up around the 70-point mark, another losing run of 16 saw that profit wiped out as well. The month finally petered out to a loss of 13.55 points.

There were 175 selections in the month (after excluding non-runners) and these produced 29 winners, a strike rate of 16.57%. The average odds of all selections in the month was exactly 7/1 (8.0), although the winning selections averaged much lower at c.9/2 (5.59). Winning selections were advised at between 5/2 and 10/1 this month.

Results – Month 2 (1st September to 30th September 2019)

Let’s not beat around the bush here, ultimately this was a terrible month for Choice Tips. A loss of 233.33 points in the period leaves the overall loss at 246.88 points for two months. However, the loss exceeded the recommended bank during the month and only a 25/1 winner on the last day brought the total loss back under the recommended bank, by just 3.12 points. Although it’s unlikely anyone would still have been placing the bets at that stage.

The strike rate was just 11.52% in the month. In fairness the first half of the month didn’t perform too badly with 13 of the 19 winners coming in that period. However, the second half of the month had losing runs of 17, 22, 23 and 26 which totally unravelled the performance.

Results – Month 3 (1st October to 31st October 2019)

If I described last month as “terrible” then I’m at a loss to come up with an adjective to fit this month. I don’t think it’s going too far to label October an abject disaster.

With 12 winners from 164 runners, a strike rate of just 7.32%, the loss for this month alone exceeded the recommended starting bank. Across the three months of the review the loss is more than double the advised bank.

Not surprisingly, there were losing sequences similar to last month, with runs of 17, 18, 21 and 28. The review period ended in the middle of an unbroken run of 14 losers as well.

Summary at End of Month 1

Despite twice building the profit up close to 70-points during the month a couple of lengthy losing runs ultimately eradicated that gain. Overall, a drawdown of 5.42% of the bank is no great cause for concern in the first month.

Summary at End of Month 2

The cumulative loss exceeded the recommended betting bank during the month, which would have brought an end to following the service for anyone who joined at the start of the review period. We will continue to report on the third month as members who joined prior to the review period may still have been within the bank figure, depending on previous performance and when they joined the service.

Summary at End of Month 3

The recommended starting bank was lost in this month alone and over the course of the review period has been lost twice over. There’s really not much more to say on the subject.
