I was just looking back through the system trials and the performances of many of the featured services have mirrored my own fortunes of late.
It has been a difficult period recently and although my own activities are making some small profits, it really has been a torrid time for some of the tipsters we're reviewing.
This was certainly the case for Systematic Racing, which was pulled from the market last week, because the laid horses were winning and the backed horses were losing! Quite simply the service struggled throughout the review and when stumps were drawn last week, it stood at a 10.6pts loss in 54 days.
It was also a bit of a struggle for the ratings services we're looking at. It's hard to quantify the success of a ratings service, but blindly backing the top rated doesn't seem to be working for Focus Ratings, but their A/W ratings are making plenty of money, as can be seen in their review. Post Racing also suffered a lull this week with the reviewable aspects of the service losing just over 7pts (see here for details).
Elsewhere 1PointWins lost 4.5pts in the last 7 days,which dropped them into negative equity after 23 days on trial with us, whilst the occasional Hawkeye service continued to fail to find a winner! No wins from five this week takes their overall record to 1/18 for a 16 pt loss in 51 days, every selection is listed here.
The biggest losses of the week were incurred by the Midas Method, who lost 16.4pts over the last week. wiping out over 75% of their previously accrued profits (all logged here) and it was a slow start for multi-sports service On The Ball. In eight days, they had four winners from nine, but at low odds meaning a loss of just over a point so far on their review.
This week saw the end of Master Racing Tipster's trial and although they closed out with two winners from four for a 4pts gain, the overall review shows a loss of 1.15pts in 60 days. It's not a massive deficit, but we can't recommend a service to you that didn't make money whilst on trial.
It was a better week for Wootton Racing, though, who had got off to a slow start, losing over 13pts in as many days action, before a recovery mission this week saw them hit 9 winners from 20 selections on their way to clawing 5pts back. As with all our trials, a full breakdown of the selections is right here.
And all that just leaves me with last week's two new football reviews to tell you about. Both have made a good start so far and in 8 days have made 6.15pts between them. Footy Lay Profits has a perfect 4/4 record for 3.8pts (those bets are here), whilst Football Fever has hit eight winners from nine, albeit at fairly short odds, but still enough to make 2.35pts (26.1% ROI) profit. That review is right here.
And that's a full roundup of all the current/recently ended reviews featured in our System Trials section of the site. I add new reviews pretty much every week, so why bookmark this link to take you to the dedicated review area?
