How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

A 100-point starting bank is recommended for this service.

How Much Money Can I Make?

No specific claims are made, but the recorded results on the website show 34.53 points profit from the start of proofing in mid-December 2018 to the end of March 2019. This equates to roughly 10-points profit per month on average.

How Much Time Will I Need to Make This Work?

All selections are win singles (with the exception of a rogue each-way bet in the first month of the review!), and with between two and five meetings in Britain on any given day, you will only need minutes when the tips are received.

Will I Need Any Equipment to Do This?

A laptop, PC, tablet or smartphone with internet connectivity and access to a range of online bookmaker accounts. These selections can also be placed in the traditional way at the local bookmaker’s shop.

Value for Money?

As is the norm I will defer a comment here until the end of the three months. So, I waited three months and I’m none the wiser! The recovery in the final month leaves me sitting on the fence  and the best I can offer is that it’s probably worth watching what happens next month to see if the final month’s performance was indicative of what the service can achieve or was a “flash in the pan”.

Quality of Customer Service?

The PuntHub website claims that all emails are answered within 12 hours of receipt. I have always received prompt and courteous replies when dealing with PuntHub.

Review

The Last Waltz begun proofing to PuntHub in December 2018 and quickly earned a place as a paid for service. The author states, “I started doing this about 10 years ago just backing Pat Eddery in the last race as it was common knowledge that he would not hang about in Windsor at 9pm unless his mount had a very strong chance and I made a lot of money just doing that. After he retired I just studied the last races and built up some exciting stats which are still working today!”

The daily selections, including Sundays, are from the final race on the card at each of the day’s British meetings. Occasionally a race will be omitted from the selections if there is a particularly short-priced favourite or very small field. All of the picks are advised as one-point win singles, although there has been one rogue each-way selection and one treble as well!

With between two and five British meetings on any given day, you can expect an average of around 95 selections per month. The average odds of the selections are around 4/1 (5.0) but can range from odds-on to 10/1 or bigger.

Each day’s email arrives between 07:00 and 08:30and after a brief introduction lists the race details, the selection, the advised odds and the bookmakers currently offering those odds. There is a reminder at the foot of the email of the staking plan.

Since proofing bean in December 2018 the PuntHub website claims 34.53 points total profit for this service at an average of around 10-points per month. According to their results the monthly performances have ranged from a profit of 18.99 points to a loss of 8.83 points.

Results – Month 1 (5th March to 4th April 2019)

Our review started with a small loss of 1.64 points for the first month. It looked for a long time during the period that a decent profit would ensue, but a run of just one winner in the last 20 selections of the month led to a loss of 17.75 points for that sequence, and the overall loss of 1.64 points for the month.

There were 101 selections in the month, including one unexpected treble and one each-way advice. Overall there were 23 winners for a strike rate of 22.77%, with both the treble and the each-way selection losing.

The average odds of all selections in the month was 5.29 (between 4/1 and 9/2), whilst the average odds of the winning selections was 4.59 (c.7/2).

Results – Month 2 (5th April to 4th May 2019)

The strike rate this month fell to a disappointing 14.68% and wasn’t helped by a sequence of 25 losing selections between winners mid-month. The overall loss for the period was 27.94 points, which leaves us with a cumulative deficit after two months of 29.58 points.

There were no multiples this month, just 109 singles, of which 14 were each-way selections. The each-way selections pulled in two winners and two placed horses for a loss in the month of 13-points. One of the two each-way winners was Thornaby Nash at Thirsk which was advised at 18/1 and helped to generate a profit of nine-points between the end of the 25-bet losing run and the end of the month.

The average odds of the selections this month was 6.01 (5/1), with the winning selections averaging a point lower at 5.07 (just a smidge over 4/1). Both of these were higher than last month but failed to offset the fall in the strike rate.

Results – Month 3 (5th May to 4th June 2019)

The final month got off to a slow start with the first week producing three winners from 29 selections and a loss of over 10-points. However, I think his dancing shoes must have come back from the cobblers as the final three weeks of the review bore no resemblance to what had gone before. There were 28 winners from 94 selections (29.79%) producing a profit of 38.96 points. This gave us an overall profit for the month of 28.59 points and left the three months of the review at all but breakeven (actually a loss of less than one-point).

There were three each-way selections this month which produced two winners and a place and accounted for 23.85 points of profit.

The average odds of all selections remained close to 5/1 (5.81), whilst the winning selections fell just under 4/1 (4.7). But it was the improvement in the strike rate to 24.39% in this period that made the difference to the overall performance. 

Although the overall loss for the review period was just 0.99 points, you need to factor in the cost of the membership – £117 for the three months or £89 for the quarter – when assessing the overall performance.

Summary at End of Month 1

An unfortunate run at the end which undid some good work early in the month. However, no real harm done and it’s a marathon not a sprint remember.

Summary at End of Month 2

A disappointing month which unravelled around the 25-loser sequence mid-month. Despite something of a recovery after this, the damage was done and a not insignificant loss ensued.

Summary at End of Month 3

The Last Waltz finally found its rhythm in the final month of the review and all but recovered the losses from the previous two months. What it does highlight is the shortcomings of a snapshot review, as we are left none the wiser as to the true potential, or otherwise, of the service. Further observation is needed to fully assess the merits of the service over a longer period.
