How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A starting bank of 50-points is recommended by this service.

How Much Money Can I Make?

No specific claims made, but there is some discrepancy on the historic results depending on which figure you look at. The average monthly profit is claimed to be £208 based on £20 per point stakes, so 10-points per month. However, the cumulative profit since launch in December 2017 is stated as £1,832 to the same £20 per point stakes. This figure agrees with the figure on the results spreadsheet and gives an actual average monthly profit of £152.66, or around 7.5 points.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

With an average of 3-4 bets per day, all single win bets, this is a simple service to follow and it takes minutes to place each day.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

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

Value for Money?

I’ll defer a comment here until the end of the review. Based purely on the review period then I cannot award a VFM pass for this service.

Quality of Customer Service?

Full email support is provided seven-days a week according to the website, and they aim to reply within 24 hours. Although I haven’t had to use this during the review so far, I did get timely replies to my emails when setting up the review.

Contact can also be made via the members’ area of the website.


The Horse Whisperer service launched on BetInfo24 in December 2017 and in the first-year lays claim to over £1,800 profit to £20 per point stakes in that time. This equates to around 7.5 points per month on average. There is a slight discrepancy between this average monthly profit and the one used in the headline figures on the website, although the 7.5 points can be reconciled back to the full results history.

This is the second service from BetInfo24 that I have reviewed, and that same discrepancy has appeared on both, which may suggest a bug in the calculation on their website coding.

The Horse Whisperer provide an average of 3-4 tips per day, all of which are win singles on UK and Irish racing. We have seen days with five and six tips this month, and one day had eight tips – this was the Fairyhouse meeting on 1st December.

The email arrives the evening before racing, usually between 18:30 and 20:30, and the tips are also available from the members’ area of the website. The email itself is short and to the point, giving just the race, the selection and the advised odds. There is no list of bookies offering the advised odds, although with Oddschecker, Odds Portal etc. it’s a simple enough task. All selections are one-point to win.

There is no analysis of the selections, which will not appeal to those that like to understand a bit more about the thought processes that have gone into the tips.

All-in-all this is a simple, straightforward service and it will ultimately be judged on its results. So, without further ado, how has it been performing?

Results – Month 1 (5th November to 4th December 2018)

We didn’t get the start we, or I’m sure The Horse Whisperer, would have wanted, ending the first month down by 20.5 points.

Of the 107 selections in the period, 15 won to give a strike rate of 14.02%. The average odds of all selections was 7.14 (around 6/1), although the average odds of the winners was almost a point and a half lower at 5.77 (between 9/2 and 5/1). The odds ranged from 2.25 (5/4) to 13.0 (12/1) in the month, with the winning selections covering a similar range (2.5 to 12.0).

There were plenty of losing runs around seven or eight tips, but the longest this month was one of 16 consecutive losers.

Results – Month 2 (5th December 2018 to 4th January 2019)

A not dissimilar month to last time, with a loss of 24.27 points coming from a strike rate of 14.71%, average odds of 6.7 and average odds of winning selections of 5.23.

There were a similar number of bets this month, 102 compared to 107 last time, and these selections generated 15 winners, once again the same as last month.

Once again we saw plenty of losing runs around the six to eight mark, with the worst run being 16, the same as last month. As we ended Month 1 with five consecutive losses, the sequence of 16 at the very start of this month was actually part of an overall losing streak that stretched to 21 selections.

Results – Month 3 (5th January to 4th February 2019)

A much improved performance over the first two periods, built mainly on a doubling of the strike rate to 29.36%. Against that, the average odds of all selections fell another 1.25 points to 5.44 (c.9/2), whilst the average odds of the winning selections fell by more than 1.5 points to 3.46 (c.5.2). Which all goes to prove that the average odds are only relevant when looked at in relation to the strike rate.

The final profit of 5.46 points in the month was a 4.83% Return on Investment (ROI). However, it still left us with a cumulative loss for the review period of 39.32 points. 

The improved strike rate meant the losing runs were minimised, with runs of six, seven and eight being offset by five occasions of two consecutive winners and two of three successive wins.

During the final period the cumulative loss exceeded the recommended starting bank on several occasions, by a maximum of 4.95 points. However, please note that we do not use best odds guaranteed  (BOG) in our analysis and it is likely that had you been able to take advantage of this allowance the loss would have stayed within the bank limit. At the end of the review the balance was back to over 10 points within the limit even without BOG.

Summary at End of Month 1

A disappointing start, but with two months still to come we look to the longer-term performance as always.

Summary at End of Month 2

Unfortunately, the Horse Whisperer’s performance was extremely consistent, with Month 2 being almost a carbon copy of Month 1.

Summary at End of Month 3

Based on the historic data it would appear that we hit the second and third worst month’s in the service’s history. This is a problem with the “snapshot” review and can make a service appear less successful than it is. However, I can only report on what happens in the review period and for The Horse Whisperer it was a very poor three months.
