Where to Buy:

Brief Summary:

Daily horseracing tips focussing on races with seven or less runners – hence the name! Generally there are between one and four tips per day, and the advised staking is always 5-points per selection.

How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A starting bank of 300-points is recommended.

How Much Money Can I Make?

No specific claims, but the historic results quoted on the service’s sales page claim 4,135.47 points profit since the service launched in February 2014 up to November 2015. However, the fact that this information is now nearly three years out of date leaves us with little to go on.

Luckily there is a separate “proofing” page which carries the results of every selection since launch right up to date. According to this page, total profits are now 7,726.53 points (or an average of around 150 points per month). NB this service uses five-points per bet as the basic staking, so you need to take this into account when assessing the results.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

Minutes daily when the tips are received.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

Internet connection with a mobile device, lap top or PC and access to on-line bookmakers.

Value for Money?

As always, I want to give the service a fair crack over the three-month review period. However, it’s fair to say that the first month has left them with a mountain to climb to turn things around in months two and three, which will need to be very much in line with the historic results claimed. Month 2 showed an improvement, but still a loss, and Month 3 will need to be a barnstormer to turn the trial around. At nearly £80 per month this is very much in the upper reaches of the market. With a 112 point loss experienced during the review period for a total outlay of £237.60, this service does not pass the VFM test during the trial.

Quality of Customer Service?

Not tested. Contact is via the members’ area of the website.


Lucky 7 Naps has been operated by Michael since August 2012 and joined the Bet Kudos platform (part of Betfan) in February 2014. As is the case with a lot of the services operating under the Betfan banner, you need to be aware of the staking plan that is used to generate the results claimed. In the case of Lucky 7 Naps, each and every bet is a five-point stake. This generates the need for a 300-point starting bank.

The service focuses on win only bets in UK horse races with seven or fewer runners. To that end the system is simple and straightforward to follow.

Typically there are between one and four tips per day depending on the number and quality of small field races that day.

Tips are e-mailed daily, seven days a week, and usually arrive early morning, commonly before 06:30. The e-mail format follows a typical Betfan layout which makes it clear and easy to follow. Each advice details the meeting, race time, selection, bet type (always win singles in this case), the recommended stake (always five-points) and the advised odds. There is no analysis of the reason for each selection.

There is a full history of results on the web site, with each month since February 2014 having its own page. However, the results information on the sales page is three years out of date.

Results – Month 1 (2nd April to 1st May 2018)

A difficult month to kick off the review period. Out of the 66 selections given there were just seven winners, a strike rate of 10.61%. The longest losing run was 16, and there was an unbroken run of 12 losing selections up to the end of the month.

The average odds of the selections in the period was a tad under 11.5 (between 10/1 and 11/1). However, the average odds of the six winning selections was just 4.6 (a fraction over 7/2).

All-in-all the month suffered a loss of 191.88 points and a negative return on investment (ROI) of 58.14%.

Results – Month 2 (2nd May to 1st June 2018)

Month 2 was heading for a result not dissimilar to the first month when three winners from four selections (there was a non-runner as well) on the last day of the month added over 75 points profit. That said, it was still a losing month, with a further 46.88 points lost. Combined with the first month we are now looking at a cumulative loss of 238.75 points.

Month 2 started with eight consecutive losers to add to the 12 brought forward from the end of Month 1 and gave us the a losing run of 20 selections. However this was surpassed during the month by a run of 21. We saw 15 winners in the month at a strike rate of 18.75%, significantly better than the previous month but still well down on the rate needed for profitability at the average odds advised.

The average advised odds in this month fell to 8/1 from over 10.5/1 (11.46) last month. The overall average is now a tad over 9/1 (10.11).

Results – Month 3 (2nd June to 1st July 2018)

A much improved performance to round off the review, with 126.65 points of profit secured in the final month. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to wipe out the losses from the first two months and we ended the review in a deficit of 112.1 points. The third and final month of our review saw 17 winners from 72 selections, a strike rate of 23.61%, significantly better than either of the preceding months. The overall strike rate for the trial was 17.89%. The highlight of the month was undoubtedly June 24th, when Posh Perfect (16/1) and Newton Geronimo (8/1) both came home to land 100+ points profit for the day.

The average odds once again came down month-on-month to 8.07 (just a tad over 7/1) and left the overall average for the review at 9.44 (getting towards 9/1).

There was a losing sequence of 17 straight selections during the month, which meant the 20 and 21 runs from earlier in the trial remained the worst experienced. These losing runs also took the cumulative loss slightly over the opening bank of 300 points.

Return on Investment (ROI) hit a very respectable 35.18% in the final month, with the ROC (Return on Capital) hitting 42.22%. However, neither of these could help the overall position move out of a loss.

As a footnote, the day after the review period ended Lucky 7 Naps hit three winners from five selections for a single day profit of almost 35 points. This just bears out that the review period is a snapshot in time, and although three months should give a reasonable view of a service, it is always worth following the longer term fortunes of our reviewed tipsters via The Tipster League.

Summary at end of Month 1

Obviously, this month’s results are a million miles away from the average expectations of this tipster. However, we use three-month review periods to enable us to get a picture of a tipster’s performance over a longer period, so we will wait and see if months two and three bring forth an improvement.

Summary at end of Month 2

I was hoping for better from this service as I had already witnessed a 175-point profit month through The Tipster League in March. However, even an equivalent month to that for the final month of the trial will not turn the review into a profitable one.

Summary at end of Month 3

Finally we got a glimpse of what this service claims to deliver. Long losing runs, and losing months, will be a feature of this service due to the average odds, but big priced winners will also feature. Several times during our review period the 300-point opening bank was breached by a small amount. Based on this we cannot award a star rating to this service.

The full results of the review period can be seen here.

    When you did the review, were you actually checking the prices quoted were available ?
    You should point out that, unless you are up before dawn, you will not get anyway near the prices quoted ……….. and even if you are , many prices are gone by the time you get your bets on.
    I worked night shifts when I tried this, was ready and waiting for selections on most days. I can safely say that the results quoted are simply unachievable. Yes, I made a small profit, but overall less than 25% of the profits quoted.

    Just checked Betfan’s proofing pages. Currently showing >>>

    All time profits at BOG = 8807

    at BSP = -438 (yes, that is ‘minus’)

    at ISP = -3118 (‘minus’ figure again )

    Make of that what you will.

    Personally, I can’t believe that Betfan continue to promote this as their nbr 1 service month after month…….. and anyone who claims to have made the profits shown is a liar.
