Backing To Win
Top of the shop in April was Speedratings Layer Slayer with a profit of 111.45 points based upon 1 point level stakes backing at Betfair SPs. They had 28 winners from 514 Bets, which included a number of winners at 20/1, spread throughout the month and Merry Milan at 28/1 (BSP 40.0).
SpeedRatings Layer Slayer Performance For April 2018
Close behind, with a profit of +102.37 points was the Tips Tap Firenze service. They proofed 302 bets during the month, but each selection is proofed as win and place, so the actual number of selections proofed was half that number. Proofing in this manner tends to amplify both profits and losses, as it’s effectively 2 points staked per selection (1 point win 1 point place) where as if the bets were proofed each-way the profit/loss would be halved as it would be 1 point staked in total.
They’ve only been proofing to Racing-Index for 3 months and also received a mention last month, where they made a profit of +52.76 points, having made a loss in their opening month.
Tips Tap Firenze Performance From February – April 2018
Racing Oracle weighed in with a profit of 78.4 points, from just 34 bets proofed in the month. The month started slowly for them, but then took off on the 20th with Ocean Cove winning at 10/1 (BSP 13.9). That was followed up on the 21st with Joe Farrell winning at 33/1 (BSP 50.0) and then on the 27th Astigos came in at 16/1 (BSP 27.94).
It’s proving a good year, so far, for Racing Oracle, as they also received a mention in January, when they banked +60.95 points profit. They’re showing an overall profit of 111.48 points for the first 4 months of the year.
Speculate To Accumulate Elite Service bagged +58.5 points, to move them into profit for the year. Similarly to Tips Tap, they proof the majority of their selections as separate win and place bets, although some are submitted each-way. The big winners for them, during April, were Smooth Stepper at 16/1 (BSP 21.71) and Ultragold at 14/1 (BSP 18.73), as well as putting up Tiger Roll to win the Grand National.
Last month it was 2020 Racing who made the most profit, with +185.66 points. Anyone jumping on the band wagon will not be disappointed, as they banked a further 44 points during April.
Laying To Lose
Sniper Bets were again top of the pile for the lay bet tipsters, with a profit of +7.09 points based upon 1 point liability per bet. For analysis of their bets see Sniper Bets Review Analysis.
