Where To Buy:

Brief Summary:

Set up by James Walsh in 2009 this service offers horse racing tips year-round. On average there are 2-3 bets per day, but there have been days with no bets and others with up to 6. Bets are advised win and each-way and a recommended points stake is given.

How Much Money Do I Need To Get Started?

A £500 betting bank is recommended by the author but you should convert this into points, based on your own circumstances.

How Much Money Can I Make?

No specific claims. Web site states: “…you will not become a millionaire but what is on offer to you is a generous second income or even a full time income depending on what stake you are willing use.”

How Much Time Will I Need To Make This Work?

Minutes when tips are received.

Will I Need Any Equipment To Do This?

Internet connection.

Value For Money?  

The first month’s results in the trial have been poor (see below). However, this is an established tipster which would indicate that past results have been profitable. We need to see what month’s 2 and 3 hold before reaching a conclusion because, as always, we are looking for long-term profitability. Although Month 2 showed a marked improvement from the first month (see results below), we are still a long way from being able to give this service a value for money stamp. We’ll see what the final month of the trial can do to save the day. Unfortunately the three months of the trial delivered a loss of 27 points and consequently we cannot award a value for money stamp on that basis.

Quality Of Customer Service?  

Sign up was quick and easy and all e-mail queries have been answered in a short time frame. A new website has been launched in March which is designed to give users an improved experience.


James Wilson established JPW Racing Tipster 8 years ago and is still going strong today, so the underlying performance must be there. Unfortunately, the web site does not give any historic results in terms of points profit by year or return on investment. The winners for each calendar year are listed, but in isolation do not give us a picture of the overall performance of the service.

As well as the daily tips service, for which there are monthly (£30), 3-monthly (£75), 6-monthly (£135) and annual (£240) options, James also offers special packages. These range from Festival packages, to Saturdays only, to bespoke tips if you want particular meetings covered if you’re off racing.

All of the tips are accompanied by a rationale for the selection. The selections are clearly presented, and the recommended stake given alongside the advised odds and the bookies offering those terms. The advised odds have been generally available at the time the e-mail is received.

The launch of the new web site has also seen the introduction of text alerts for new tips issued. This will avoid the potential issues with delays in e-mail delivery and increase the chances of members getting on at the advised prices. A link on the text takes you to the rationale for the selections on the web site. E-mails continue to be sent as well. This is a really good innovation for the service.

Results – Month 1 (December 1st to December 31st, 2017)

The review period got off to the worst possible start with all three tips losing on day one, including two short priced selections. The month has never really recovered with just 8 winners from 66 bets, a strike rate of just 12.12%. There were also 3 placed each-way selections. There were no consecutive winners, the best sequence being a placed followed by a winner. The longest losing run was 11, which happened to occur at the very start of the review period.

The first month ended with a disappointing loss of 31.625 points. Average odds for selections in the period was 8.31.

It is always tough when a tipster has a poor first month in a review period, but that is why we always go for a minimum 3-month trial. I can reveal that the first day of the new period delivered 5 points profit, so we’ll have to wait and see if the damage from month one can be repaired.

Results – Month 2 (January 1st to January 31st, 2018)

The second month has delivered small profit of 3.92 points with 10 winners from 54 bets, a strike rate of 18.52%. There were also another 4 placed each-way selections. The most successful day of the period was Saturday 6th January with 11.5 points profit from two winners and a place. That day also saw the best individual tip of the month with Summerville Boy winning at an advised 16/1. The longest losing run was 9, but there was also an unbroken run of 4 consecutive losses at the end of the period.

Added to the first month’s disappointing loss of 31.625 points, the cumulative loss after two months is now 27.9 points. Average odds for selections across both months was a shade over 7/1.

It is always tough when a tipster has a poor first month in a review period, but that is why we always go for a minimum 3-month trial. We’ll have to see if Month 3 can eat away more of the opening losses.

Results – Month 3 (February 1st to February 28th, 2018)

Like the previous month, the final month of the trial ended with a small profit. However, the service never recovered from the loss of over 30 points in the first month of the review and finished the three month trial at a loss of 27.09 points. As you know, I don’t record BOG due to the speed with which bookmakers are withdrawing this benefit from punters. However, anyone getting BOG on the selections would have fared slightly better than this.

February suffered a run of 17 selections without a winner (one placed) at one stage and ended with eight straight losing selections. There were four occasions during the month with two winners on the day.


Summary at end of Month 1

Taking the advised starting bank of £500 and using £10 as our point stake, we would have had a 50-point starting bank. The worst point in the month was a cumulative loss of 37.23 points which would have been a significant dent in the bank.

Look out for the update at the end of month 2.

Summary at end of Month 2

Some progress has been made towards redressing the loss from the first month of the trial, but further significant remedial work needs to occur in the final month to turn the trial around.

Summary at end of Month 3

A disappointing review period for an established tipster, which can happen. On the basis of the review alone I can only award this service one star. The work on the web site and text alerts shows the investment in the service and hopefully results will pick up. You can monitor the ongoing performance of JPW Racing through The Tipster League.
