Bank Builder Service Review

Bank Builder Service Review

Welcome to our review of the Bank Builder.

Bank Builder is a horse racing advisory service operated by Breon Rawlings and marketed by Sportsworld Publishing.

Breon's aim was to double his betting bank within 3 months and it was porposed that he would achieve this during a live trial with Sportsworld.

For the purpose of the proofing, Bank Builder started with a notional £400, staking £10 on each bet and during the three months, the bank was actually almost doubled twice to £1190.

There were 40 winners from 76 bets (52.6% SR) and 79pts profit (+103.9% ROI) from sensible staking and the longest losing run was just five (twice).

Based on this success, Sportsworld then advised that a £20 stake from a £400 bank would still not place too much risk on an investor's original capital and since the beginning of February the bets have been a mixture of 1pt and 2pt bets (£10 & £20) and as of Sunday 21st June, the £400 bank stood at £1762.

The Bank Builder's £1362 profit has been achieved by an overall record of 106 winning bets from 257 advised (41.2% SR) selections.

No indications are given on how Breon arrives at his selections, nor is any information given about the horses he has chosen, but I suppose it's winners and not chat that we're after!

A subscription to the Bank Builder service is towards the higher end of what we normally review at £50 per month, although a decent discount is aplied to the quarterly subs of £119. That said, if they can maintain recent results, £50 a month might still prove decent value.

The selections are emailed to subscribers quite early each morning and come with a guide to whether it's a 1pt or a 2pt bet, but it is the daily email that I believe let the service down. It could contain more information than it does and the price quoted is often a Betfair price, which won't always be available to everyone.

That minor quibble aside, Barry Gill is going to monitor the Bank Builder for the next 60 days, using a £10 per point stake and for the purposes of clarity, we're going to settle our bets at Betfair SP, deducting 5% commission from all winning bets.

Bank Builder Day 41 : 01/08/15

Here's what Breon has to say in todays email

First a word of explanation about the selections this week
which are very different from those we normally go for.
The Goodwood July meeting is unique and in the handicaps
there are good opportunities for big priced winners.  We have
only had one winner so far (at Betfair 23.0), but quite a few
others have been close seconds or placed, such as Furiant and
and Rhythmical yesterday (Betfair 14 and 9 respectively).
We are having a final go at Goodwood today, but will be
returning to normal from Monday - ie fewer selections with
lower prices but a higher strike rate!
Todays Selections
14.00 Goodwood : Indescriable, 0.5 win 8th

    Hi

    I joined this service on 6 July and I am using the best odds I can get.

    As at yesterday I am 6.51 points up.

    I will keep you updated of my results.

    Gavin.
