How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A betting bank of 100-points is recommended by this service.

How Much Money Can I Make?

Although the website alludes to “over 2,000 points profit in the last three years alone”, the detailed results sheet only goes back as far as June 2018 and records 356.74 pints profit to the end of October 2019 at best odds guaranteed.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

There are only one or two single selections each day and so following this service is not time consuming at all. A couple of minutes daily is all that is required.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

A PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone with access to the internet and a range of online bookmakers’ accounts.

Value for Money?

As always, I will wait for the end of the three months before offering an opinion here. I have seen enough during the review period to happily award a VFM pass for this service based on the three month’s performance.

Quality of Customer Service?

There is no “Contact Us” option on the website and no obvious reference to a contact email address. I did find a “Create New Ticket” option at the very bottom of the page, but when I clicked on it the page had an error.


Target Racing sits on the BetHub platform and there is a record of results going back to June 2018, although we are told on the website that “Target Racing have been providing profitable selections to their private members for over 20 years and have a brilliant track record”.

There are generally just one or two selections each day and these are a mixture of win and each-way picks. Selections are arrived at through both form reading and contact information, with each selection being accompanied by a write up on the reasoning behind the pick.

The daily email usually arrives the evening before racing, although on occasion this has spilled over to the morning of the races. BetHub have recently introduce an app (Android and IOS) which delivers the tips in real time, which can mean a few extra minutes to get bets on at the advised prices.

Stakes range from one to two-points per bet, with each-way selections being a total investment of up to two-points.

The average odds of selections is around 5/1, with double figure prices being advised each-way as a rule.

Results – Month 1 (2nd October to 1st November 2019)

The review started with a steady profit of 6.22 points in the first month. This is, however, significantly behind the historic levels claimed on the website (55.5 points per month for the last three years) or shown on their detailed results spreadsheet (21 points per month between June 2018 and October 2019). But it is just one month in isolation so we will see if this climbs over the next two months.

There were 37 selections this period, of which eight were winners (21.62%), with a further placed effort. The longest losing sequence was seven selections, although we ended the period with an unbroken run of four losers. These two runs were separated by one winner and saw the profit fall from a high in the month of 20.72 points to the final gain of 6.22 points.

The average odds of all selections were in keeping with the historic level at around 5/1 – 11/2 (6.36). The winning selections averaged around a point lower at 5.28 and ranged from 2.5 (6/4) to 13.0 (12/1).

The return on investment (ROI) was at a rate of 8.92%, although when the cost of membership is deducted from the profit the net ROI is 3.07% at £10 per point stakes or 7.69% at £50 per point.

Results – Month 2 (2nd November to 1st December 2019)

There were just 24 selections this month, which produced 6 winners for a strike rate of 25%. In addition, of the five selections that were advised each-way there were a further two placed efforts. Amongst the winners was Harambe at Cheltenham which was advised at 1.5 points each-way at 16/1. This played a significant part in the month ending with a profit of 23.47 points. After two months we are now sitting on a cumulative profit of 29.69points.

The longest losing sequence this month was the final four selections of the month at Newbury.

The average odds of all selections this period was slightly above the historic level at just over 6/1 (7.29). Across the two months of the review to date the average odds are slightly above the historic figure at 6.73 (slightly under 6/1). The winning selections this month averaged just over 9/2 (5.58) and ranged from 2.5 (6/4) to 17.0 (16/1). However, without Harambe the average of the other five winners is just 3.29 (c.9/4).

The return on investment (ROI) this month was a very healthy 42.67%, and after two months now stands at 23.8%. Once you deduct the cost of two months membership,  the net return becomes 16.41% at £10 per point stakes or 22.25% at £50 per point.

Results – Month 3 (2nd December 2019 to 1st January 2020)

There were 31 runners this month which produced seven winners (22.58%) and a further three placed efforts advised each-way.

Although the strike rate was similar to last month the overall performance was significantly down at a small loss of 1.73 points. This was due to the absence of an Harambe winning at 16/1 this month. The average odds of the winning selections this month was 3.77 (around 11/4), slightly up on last month’s figure excluding Harambe. The winners ranged from evens (2.0) to 4/1 (5.0) this period.

The win strike rate across the three months of the review was 22.83% and, with a further six placed each-way selections, there were profits from around 30% of all selections. The average odds of all winning selections was 4.86 (towards 4/1) which is down on the historic average by about a point.

Despite the small loss this month we ended the review with an overall profit of 27.96 points at an ROI of 15.05%.

Taking into account three months subscription fees, the net ROI at £10 per point stakes becomes 8.14% and at £50 per point stakes 13.6%.

Summary at End of Month 1

A solid if unspectacular start to the review, which provides a platform to build on in the next two months.

Summary at End of Month 2

A significantly better return this month, helped in no small part by the win of Harambe at Cheltenham at 16/1.

Summary at End of Month 3

Despite a small loss in the final month the overall performance has been positive, returning an average monthly profit of just shy of 10-points.
