Newspaper Tipsters

Do you follow a newspaper tipster?

I'm guessing a large part of the betting public do, whether that be a regular tabloid tipster or a specialist newspaper tipster, which these days means one of the Racing Post columns.

I've just been looking at the Racing Post Naps Tables and Tipster Challenge Tables.

In the Press Challenge which pays a first prize of £2,000 to the top tipster at the end of the year there are only twelve entries.

Two of those are The Favourite and Top Course Trainer, which I guess are included to give some context to the tipster performance but probably also to make yp the numbers!

The Press Challenge table is also interesting for the data that it doesnt include as much as it is for what is presented.

It is a year long competition and each tipster starts with a £1,000 starting bank and one pound is staked on each tip. The tipster with the biggest bank at the end of the year wins the prize, but the table doesnt show the size of those yearly banks in the table.

IE we don't know what loss has been made so far this year by each tipster.

What is does show is the monthly profit or loss to £1 stakes, they obviously have the annual figures to date, but I guess it would be demoralising to punters to show them 🙁

If anybody has these tables from the printed Racing Post from the last day of each month so we could build up an annual figure that would be useful?

So what do we get? For the annual stats all we get is the number of tips and the number of winners and a strike rate.

Favourites have won 36% of races this year. I don't quite understand the turnover column but I'm guessing it means how many races the tipster bets on and that the favourites are less than 100% because of joint favourites etc. If anybody knows different then please let me know in the comments.

The Suns Templegate has a 27% strike rate but only selects 48% favourites.

We get profit and loss facts about Naps, which I assume is for the month and that shows Templegate Naps at + 9 points, the negative figures from other tipsters are not big enough for this to be the year to date figures.

Where we get the most info is in the month to date.

This month favourites are winning with + 28.81 from 403 bets, not great but this is at industry SP and as it's favourites we would expect them to return a loss in line with the average over-round. So favourites are over performing this month, so far!

The only other tipster in profit this month is Patrick Weaver from The Star who is +6.44 from 382 bets.

Interestingly Top Course Trainer shows a big loss for the month and a terrible strike rate for the year.

You can check out this data for yourself here http://www.racingpost.com/news/tips_home.sd#topHorseTabs=press_challenge_form

I'm going to make a note to collect the tables at the end of each month to see if we can glean anything worthwhile from them in the future.

Rory Delargy Tips (Try for a Fiver)

Rory Delargy, who I first heard on Timeform Radio and Will Hill radio, has launched his own tipping service along with fellow Will Hill regular David Massey.

Rory currently represents The Irish Field in the Racing Post Naps competition and is a regular at the top of the Naps table. (I just checked and he's currently 3rd)

The new service that Rory and David have just launched has a first month trial price of just £5 and you can take that here http://racingconsultants.co.uk/

I have shared some of their analysis and tips on this site before, and as well as giving selections and suggested stakes they also share their assessment of the race and the reason that the selections have been made.

Here's an example of one they got right last week…

4.40 Fontwell – Wor Rom 1pt e/w 15-2 CoralWon 12/1

Fontwell – Similarly conditions are set to worsen at the Sussex venue and soft ground horses should be given utmost consideration. The 3.10 gets a mention due to the money this morning for Detour Ahead, one of three horses Warren Greatrex has got from Jennie Candish, and it will be interesting to see how he gets on today. Always had ability but it’s been difficult to unlock, and if this one wins you can expect good money for the other two when they run too. Dahteste is another that’s shown a glimmer of ability in that contest, and is another that needs keeping an eye on, having run well over C & D on rain-softened ground the time before last before disappointing again next time.

The only bet on the card comes in the shape of veteran Wor Rom in the 4.40. He’s possibly the one horse in the field you can put your finger on who won’t have any issues with this extended trip in soft ground, and the addition of first time blinkers may well rejuvenate him (has run well in cheekpieces before). With Andrew Thornton on board to bump him along, he should be staying on better than most here and ought not be out of the frame at worst.

So if you would like to try out a service from some real pro analysts at a bargain price then head over to http://racingconsultants.co.uk, I think it will be an education as well as profitable.
