Over The Top Service Review

Our latest review takes a look at
Over The Top (Place Laying)

Over The Top is a horse racing advisory service which aims to identify horses that will fail to even make the frame, therefore all bets are made on your preferred exchange in the place lay markets.

The service runs via email and each morning, you will be advised which horses the vendor thinks will fail to place and all you need to do is lay it!

Over The Top claims that since starting in early October 2013 that they've never had a losing month and have an 84.2% strike rate. I've seen their published results and in the last seven and a half months, they have correctly identified 357 unplaced horses from just 424 selections.

The 67 losing bets have cost the subscriber on average 4.08pts, meaning that any strike rate above 81% will result in profit.

The man behind Over The Top has been involved in racing as an owner for over 10 yrs now and thinks that his experience has taught how to find underpriced National hunt horses to lay in the place markets.

This service only runs over jumps, but we are told to still expect around 20 25 selections per month in summer. This figure will obviously rise over the winter. There have been 20 selections so far this month, with just one losing bet, pushing the profits for Over The Top beyond 103pts in almost eight months.

We are told that the selections are usually horses with a very stiff task to get in the frame, but yet appear to be under-priced in the place market. There are several of these horses on a daily basis, but they only lay on jumps; they select their best ‘Place Lays for The Day’, which are then emailed out at about midday.

There isn't always a selection each day. If there are no selections for the day you will still get an email stating there are no selections on that day but on the other hand, some days you will have 2 or 3 selections to lay on the place market.

Selections average 20 to 25 in Summer months but more throughout the National Hunt Season.

Marketed by the reputable Sportsworld Publishing, a subscription to Over The Top currently costs just £30 a month or £80 for three months and Iain MacMillan will be following this one for the next couple of months, using a nominal £10 declaring results at Betfair SP less a 5% commission of all winning bets.

    “2.40 Worcester: Georgian King: 2nd at 16.21: No Bet”

    Are there price filters in play with this service? Minimum, maximum, both?

    Regards,

    David

      Hi David,

      yes, there’s an upper limit of 16.00, which the service was lucky to avoid.
