What is Geegeez?

What is Geegeez?

Geegeez.co.uk is an independent website dedicated to UK and Irish racing. It publishes a range of tips, editorial, how to's, and big race previews as well as its flagship service, Geegeez Gold.

What is Geegeez Gold?

Geegeez Gold is, in a nutshell, one of the most comprehensive horse racing betting services available. Featuring state of the art racecards packed with profit-pulling insights, a computer formbook, laser-targeted daily reports, winning tips and ratings, a community forum, next generation draw and pace data, and our secret weapon, the Instant Expert.

Instant Expert is a colour-coded at-a-glance form profiler showcasing ALL of the relevant form for ALL runners in a race. Using this single view users can see instantly whether a race is competitive or not, and which runners are best suited to today's conditions, regardless of recent form. Hence the name Instant Expert!

About Geegeez Gold

Where do I start?

Geegeez Gold offers a wide range of content to its subscribers. For new users, it is easy (and natural) to feel overwhelm. So, don't worry if that's you. Like everything else in life, take it one step at a time and you'll be fine.

The first step is to familiarize yourself with the racecards. These are similar to those of the 'traditional providers', which many users previously relied on. Similar, but much enhanced! So get used to our racecard and the extra features in it.

And of course, check out the Read This First page, and the User Guide, the latest version of which is always on your My Geegeez Page.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT Skip This! Geegeez Gold *will* help you improve your betting, but only if you let it. Failing to take the time to engage with at least the basics of Gold is like saying you don't want to be a better bettor. If you're reading this, then we both know that's not true so, please, Read This First!

What’s so special about Geegeez Gold?

Geegeez Gold is revolutionizing the way UK and Irish racing fans choose their bets. It is special for a number of reasons:

- Strong focus on colour and visualization: Your brain reads colour and imagery much more quickly than words and numbers. We use that as a cornerstone of how we present data, to ensure you absorb more information in less time.

- Intuitive and usable interface: Our designers and developers bet on horse racing. That means they know how things should look, and they understand how punters think. As such, our page designs are slicker and more usable than any of our competitors.

- Speed of access: With knowledge contained in a number of tabs for a race, it is crucial that users can navigate between them quickly. Our content loads almost instantaneously meaning no delays when you're sizing up a bet.

- Innovating faster than any other provider: It took us two years, starting from scratch, to catch up with the existing race card and form book providers. Since then, we've been relentlessly innovating, introducing the likes of Instant Expert, draw/run style heat maps, and inline sire and trainer (coming soon!) snippets.

- Continuous investment: We are a privately owned small British enterprise, employing British (and Irish) staff. We have no shareholders, meaning our focus is on continuous investment. That's great news for Gold subscribers because it underscores our commitment to develop a set of tools and resources far superior to anything else in the Irish/UK racing space.

- Personal customer care: We care about you, our subscriber. And we're not just saying that. As the founder of geegeez.co.uk and Geegeez Gold, I have a fierce commitment to looking after our readers, trialists and subscribers. Whether you're a lifetime Gold subscriber or have never bought a thing from us, we genuinely care about our community and take time to respond personally (and quickly) to your questions. So please don't be shy - you can contact us with any questions, here.

- Our community: Gold subscribers are different. They really are. They 'get it'. They understand that being a better bettor means taking ownership of one's punting. It means commiting to learning (a bit, or a lot) more about how things work. It means understanding that having fun and winning at betting are not mutually exclusive, but that promises of retirement riches are preposterous and impossible. If that sounds like your idea of fun, we can't wait to meet you in our forum!

Where are the tips?

Geegeez Gold has a tipping feature called Stat of the Day (SotD for short). SotD can be found from the right hand side of the home page, at www.geegeez.co.uk, or from its own page, here.

SotD has an established profit record of over 320 points at the time of writing. But, like all value services, it has downswings as well as profit runs. If you have joined Gold solely for the tipping elements, please bet responsibly and be realistic about the mid- to long-term and about betting within a 'bank structure' (we recommend at least 60 points).

N.B. We do NOT email tips out. Subscribers access SotD, and the tips below, from the website itself.

Other tips can be found within the forum, where two 'premium' threads run:

- Each Way Double Dutch (EWDD) offers two picks in two races each day, recommending four each way doubles. It has recorded over 100 points profit in a few months. However, please be aware that this is a volatile service with significant upswings. It is not for everyone!

- Sinister Horses for Sinister Courses: talking of not for everyone, this thread has been remarkable in turning a profit of over 8,000 (eight thousand!) points in a year. Again, this is probably for experienced bettors only, as it requires placing a very large number of bets and is extremely volatile. The rewards are there for patient punters who adopt a sufficiently large (1000 point) bank.

Moving on from the tipping, users are encouraged to dip their toes into The Shortlist waters. This report is an excellent source of winners and highlights five core pillars of form reading in a readily digestible daily format.

Is there any more help?

Yes!

User Guide

The User Guide is a genuinely good place to start. Don't read it from cover to cover but, instead, dip into it and experiment with parts of the service that interest you. To remind you, the latest version is always on your My Geegeez page.

Gold Playbook

As well as that, we are introducing a 'Gold Playbook'. This part work will showcase various tools and features inside Geegeez Gold and offer tutorials and 'how to' suggestions for getting the best out of them.

You can access the Gold Playbook from here.

Video Tutorials

Also on your My Geegeez page is a series of video tutorials. Some of these offer insights into betting far beyond the actual tool being showcased, and these are well worth the time to watch.
