Below, we have provided a snapshot of each of our Premium Racing services so you can make an informed decision on which tipster(s) suit your requirements. This table captures the key features of each of them to provide a starting point.
The Current 7 SBC Horse Racing Premium Services
Run by Nicky Doyle, Bet Alchemist is a veteran SBC service with 10 years of proofed tips. During this time, the service has provided a 10.48% ROI for followers with an impressive 416.9% Return On Capital (ROC).
Nicky uses his experience alongside exhaustive form study to find horses that he feels are overpriced. By focusing on sprint and Class 2 handicaps, he has a specialism that has provided a profitable edge.
Due to concentrating on major races (and meetings), Bet Alchemist’s prices are relatively easy to obtain and followers are less open to restrictions from bookmakers. In addition, our in-house analysis reveals that bets provide a profit at BSP, making it ideal for those unable to place bets with bookmakers.
Utilises Kieran Ward’s Value Betting Service to select horses priced between 7/4 and 3/1 and place them in multiples to compound their value. Since proofing began in 2017, Multiple Power has returned a spectacular of 34.91% at advised stakes, with this figure rising to an incredible 57.55% with a Best-Odds-Guaranteed facility.
Using bets such as doubles, trixies, yankees and super-yankees to compound value has provided profit, as demonstrated above. Further benefits include the fact that bookmakers welcome these bets from customers (as they normally compound negative value selections) and that relatively small stakes can be used to obtain large returns.
Bets are sent out daily by email, meaning that Multiple Power provides a low maintenance service with bets that can be placed with bookmakers for handsome profits.
Run by an industry insider, No Foto Needed is a relatively new service to the Smart Betting Club Premium Area after having his record proofed since the start of 2021 (and providing his service for free to SBC members between March and August 2022). This period saw No Foto Needed achieve a ROI of 17.43% and 393 points profit from only 1,461 bets.
By concentrating on higher class races, this service provides selections with obtainable prices that are unlikely to cause issues with bookmaker accounts. Furthermore, the bet release time (between 11am and 12:30pm) means that exchange markets normally have sufficient liquidity for more sizeable stakes.
To provide extra value to followers, No Foto Needed provides a detailed rationale for his selections alongside reflections on the previous day’s picks. A low volatility service, NFN is exclusively available to SBC members and has demonstrated a consistent edge against the market.
Run by Andrew Lowrie (co-host of the excellent Pro Bet Podcast), Optimum Racing is a specialist service with over 2 decades of returns for customers. Since proofing began in 2015, Optimum Racing has produced a ROI of 25.92% and 176 points profit from only 483 bets.
This selectivity is one core strength of the service, with another being Andrew’s experience of using sectional timings to evaluate races in different ways from the ‘racing crowd’ to gain his edge.
To supplement his recommended tips, Andrew also provides his thoughts on the day’s chasing races in his email for subscribers. This service is low maintenance, consistent and has low volatility, making it a perfect addition to a betting portfolio.
A 2nd SBC Racing service run by racing expert, Kieran Ward. Using Kieran’s Value Method, Precision Value focuses on horses priced between 7/4 and 5/1 and has returned a solid 8.75% ROI for followers since proofing began in 2011, resulting in a staggering 920.04% Return On Capital (ROC).
By being selective and specialising on horses with shorter odds, this is a low to medium volatility service, with consistent and sustainable returns. This is demonstrated by the fact that a £2,000 bank would have generated profits of £18,530 since the service’s inception, with a positive return in 11 of those 12 years.
To add further credence to this record, Precision Value only settles at prices available with 2 or more bookmakers on the Oddschecker grid, meaning that account restrictions are less likely due to taking stand out prices.
Quentin Franks Racing
Run by the well renowned and respected expert tipster, Quentin Franks Racing is the most recent addition to the SBC Racing stable. The service is quickly approaching 10,000 bets and returns have been fantastic for followers with 1,942.28 points of profit providing a 15.77% ROI.
The service is profitable across all codes of racing but Quentin predominantly focuses on the flat (these make up over 85% of bets). A win only service that we recommend for use solely with bookmakers, Quentin Franks Racing has shown consistent and sustainable growth since inception with a 22.44% strike rate and 9 consecutive years of profitability.
To add extra value to customers, Quentin’s tie-up with the SBC will work a little bit differently. To avoid price crashes and account issues, a membership cap has been employed alongside fair price and recording policies to ensure the best value and sustainability for members looking to follow Quentin’s selections.
A unique service in the SBC Horse Racing Premium Area as you select your horses using a profitable system developed by racing expert, Kieran Ward. Results tracking for this system (for all bets) shows a strike rate of 15.96% with a ROI of 9.84%. Our proofing has shown that backing every one of the 41,113 recommended horses since July 2021 (without any filtering) would have returned £42,430 profit using £10 stakes.
The best thing about this service is that it is flexible and you can be selective. Instead of waiting for tips or recommendations to be delivered to your inbox, you can log on to the Value Machine at any time to find value bets. This is perfect for if you have a particular time of the day (or week) when you like to place your bets as the system constantly updates with live odds feeds to produce value propositions.
The system also allows customisation as you can filter by odds ranges, available bookmakers and single/multiple selections in a race and get notifications sent to you directly after setting up your filters.
