Where to Buy:


How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

The advised starting bank for this service is 250-points.

How Much Money Can I Make?

This is a relatively new service and the website claims 586 points profit in the seven months it has been running to date. This is an average of around 83 points per month. However, the information provided on the website shows that over 460 of those points came in the first two months.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

This very much depends on the number of selections and types of bets on any given day. Some days there may be just a couple of singles and on others it could be four singles plus a multiple(s).

Either way it shouldn’t take more than ten minutes when the tips are received – usually between 09:00 and 11:20 each morning.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

A laptop, PC, tablet or smart phone with internet access and access to a range of online bookmaker accounts.

Value for Money?

As always, I will wait for the end of the review period before commenting on this aspect of the service. Three consecutive months of loss and a total loss that exceeds the recommended starting bank, that’ll be a “no”from me then.

Quality of Customer Service?

Has the 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.


Speedster is a relative newcomer to the Betfan platform having been launched as a paid-for service in August 2018 following a successful proofing period on Tipster Planet.

According to his profile on the Betfan website, Speedster has over 30-years’ experience following racing. During that time, he has built up a wealth of knowledge and analysis, as well as developing many contacts in the racing world whose information is used to supplement his own race evaluation.

One of the key aspects Speedster looks at is how a horse’s form (or lack of) at one track transfers to another, an area he believes the bookmakers often overlook.

Whilst Speedster does not shy away from tipping shorter priced horses (generally 7/2 and under) to win, the majority of selections are each-way on longer priced selections. All selections are given as singles, either win or each-way, but depending on the number of selections on a particular day these are usually rolled up into doubles, trebles, patents or Trixies as well.

Stakes range from two to five-points in total per bet. So a multiple will be staked accordingly, for example a 0.5 point win Patent is a total outlay of 3.5 points, a one-point win Trixie is four-points in total etc.

Although the selections follow the traditional Betfan email layout in terms of the race details, selection, bet type, staking and advised odds (in both fractional and decimal format), Speedster precedes these with a good analysis of each selection for the day.

As well as the daily email, tips are available in the members’ area of the website and via the Betfan app.

Results – Month 1 (15th February to 14th March 2019)

The month started brightly and by the time Crosspark won at Newcastle at 20/1 (advised 1.5 points each-way) we were sitting on a cumulative profit of 43.67 points. However, more downs than ups followed and by the start of Cheltenham we were 22.35 points in deficit. This month captured the first three-days of the Cheltenham festival and, with the help of winners including City Island (8/1) and Band of Outlaws (5/1), Speedster managed to recover just under six-points across those days. This left us with an overall loss for the first month of 16.6 points.

There were 94 single selections in the month, of which 17 won, a strike rate of 18.08%. There were a further 15 placed each-way picks.

The average odds of the winning selections were 6.52, a shade over 11/2, and ranged from 2.0 (evens) to 21.0 (20/1).

There were 28 multiple bets, comprising 19 doubles (four wins), seven Patents (one profit) and two Trixies (both lost). The multiple bets lost a total of 37.73 points, whilst the singles actually made a profit of 21.13 points.

Results – Month 2 (15th March to 14th April 2019)

It’s difficult to know where to start this month. The bottom line was a loss of 202.56 points. The strike rate was a mere 11.11% on singles. Of 28 multiples only three showed any return. The average odds of winning selections was down under 3/1. There was an 81% drawdown on the bank.

There were 13 placed each-way picks from 74 each way selections (three of the winning selections were each way picks as well).

Whilst the singles were profitable last month they accounted for over 160-points of the loss this period.

The cumulative loss from the two months now stands at 219.16 points and equates to a bank drawdown of 87.66%.

Results – Month 3 (15th April to 14th May 2019)

Despite a bit of a rally in the last few days this was ultimately another losing month for Speedster. Whilst it didn’t repeat the levels of last month, the loss was still 48.15 points, enough to take the cumulative loss to 267.31 points, in excess of the recommended bank of 250-points.

The betting bank was initially breached ten days into this period. The cumulative loss then all but hit 300-points before a couple of oases in the bleak performance added some small crumb of respectability to the month.

We saw the “best” strike rate of the review on the singles this month at 19.78%, but that still amounted to a loss on the singles of 13.74 points. In addition, there were 32 multiples this month, comprising 22 doubles (one win and two each way returns), one treble (lost), six Patents (one profit), two Trixies (one profit) and one Yankee (profit of 0.1 points).

Summary at End of Month 1

A difficult first month of the review, with a few high spots, but overall a disappointing result. It is, however, worth noting the performance of the singles in isolation.

Summary at End of Month 2

The best thing to do here is draw a line under this month and hope that Month 3 shows this to be an exception.

Summary at End of Month 3

Whilst it is always possible to hit a poor period for a service when conducting a “snapshot” review, the fact that this service managed to wipe out its recommended betting bank during the three months leaves little room for positive comment.
