Premium Naps Service Review

Next in the the firing line is Premium Naps!

Premium Naps shares many similarities with stablemate service, Layers Paradise. Both are promoted/marketed by the Pro Betting Club, who are building up a tidy portfolio of managed services and both were started in January 2013.

Just like Layers Paradise, Premium Naps has been highly successful/profitable to date. Every single one of the 14 months since inception has seen a profit and to the end of February, the service had identified 269 winners from just 410 selections, a strike rate of 65.61% at an average Betfair SP of 1.77.

Backing all the selections at level stakes would produce a profit of 55.8pts over the 14 months, which is still reasonable, but any service averaging over 60% success lends itself very well to a staking plan and by utilising a simple incremental stakes plan (nothing too scary, though!), Premium Naps has managed to more than quadruple their profits to an excellent 226.95pts in 14 months.

A subscription to Premium Naps is currently priced at £39.50 per month with an attractively discounted (25% off!) price of just £89.50 for a quarterly membership.

The daily Premium Naps selections are posted on a password-protected members-only website each day by lunchtime at the latest and we will be reviewing the service for a two-month period from April 1st 2014.

We will be using a stake of £10 per point and we'll be declaring our results at Betfair SP less an assumed 5% commission on all winning bets.

Chris Worrall

At the request of Premium Naps Service, the review will be recording the results according to their staking plan.  Our basic £10 per point remains but it has been amended to illustrate the service in optimum mode.  From the members-only website the staking plan is described as follows:-

Staking Plan:
A betting bank of 100 points is advised for this service. Example: £1000 betting bank = £10 per point

We are using a 2 - 4 - 6 - 10 staking sequence.

Using this staking plan with our selections is the key to your profits. You need to bet with discipline,
control and with a strategy that aligns to the selection criteria and the strike rate.

You can achieve this if you follow our horse racing tips.

We've come to the end of the 2 month trial of Premium Naps and the service has finished with a flourish and a profit of £89.45 or 8.945 points.

Overall, the service gets a thumbs up.  It produced a profit, achieved a high strike rate that pretty much matched the type of selections it provided and, was generally a professionally run service.  There's no waffle or excuses, just a simple members-only website that gives a daily list of horses.  During the trial I was asked if Premium Naps was purely for National Hunt racing.  I didn't get an answer to my question from their customer support ( a negative in my opinion) but it is pretty clear that they solely concentrate on the jumpers.

Premium Naps kept plugging away, grabbing a little profit steadily and the results would have been impressive but for a 'diem horribilem' on May 1st.  £220 was wiped off the bottom line with 4 beaten horses in just a few hours.

A number of you have provided welcome comments along the way and I feel as though a number of you could be be concerned about the betting sequencing and the chasing of losses.  It's dressed as trying to achieve the best possible profit and looking at the £10 level stakes results it could be argued they are correct to suggest such a staking plan.  It's personal preference.

Premium Naps is worthy of a place in any tipster portfolio and I hope the trial gives you some ideas on what it can do for you, the stakes you'll need and how much it'll cost in the long term.

Your first 30 days for just £1

    Hi there good going so far enjoying your review is this for jumps racing only ?

    • David Sutton says:

      John,

      Glad to hear you’re enjoying the trial. Results are good and the filters appear to be working well, too. April can be a tricky month for punters but the Premium Naps Service has picked its way through the form very well so far.

      I understand it covers both codes of racing, flat and NH. I suspect formlines are more solid for NH racing right now and the flat season has yet to bed in.

  2. Joh Scott says:

    Hi David thanks for your reply to my question quite interested in this service do you know if it’s just based on price moment if they go odds on or is it based on stats , form , etc , thanks

    • David Sutton says:

      John,
      I don’t have the answer but I’ll pass on the question to Premium Naps and see what they say. As I see it, the service is called Premium Naps and they are focused on the short-price runners. Coupled with form analysis, I suspect they can still identify some value in those price ranges. But those are just my thoughts so, let’s see what they say.

  3. richard says:

    do i have to be in front of my computer just before the off for each race,or can i stake early if the price is right? richard

    • David Sutton says:

      Hi Richard,

      Yes and no to both questions!

      Premium Naps provide you with a selection(s) and you’re free to decide to back the horse. They advise you use Betfair SP and only back the horse in the range specified. Couple with the staking plan, they believe these are the optimum conditions to making a profit from their service. And so far, it’s difficult to disagree with that. If you choose otherwise, the results may not match those Premium Naps claim.

      I’ve spoken about this before and there are alternatives for placing bets on Betfair such as using bots and unless you have the time and capacity be on Betfair (computer, tablet or mobile) prior to the off, it could be your only option. There’s plenty of people anti-bots, or can’t afford them or don’t have the capability to run a PC all day but if you do, they could be perfect for this type of service. It adds to the cost and that should be a factor in your decision.

      So far in the trial, Premium Naps is proving to be a selective and profitable service under their optimal conditions.. I hope the trial gives you an insight in how to decide if it will fit your betting portfolio.

      Regards,

      David Sutton

    Hi David thanks for the update will look forward to the rest of the trail thank you

    How were today’s bets? I have win form pro, up to last bet on the stake plan after today

    • David Sutton says:

      Frankly, the results for today’s bets were awful. That’s the beauty of doing a 60-day trial, you get to see all the bumps in the road!

  6. John Scott says:

    Wow 4 odds on shots all stuffed but as you say it’s a 60-day trail be interesting to see how this ends up over the 60 days

  7. Ratatat says:

    Read comments on Win Form Pro.Far too many odds on.All NH selections.After experiencing May results to date,it will be interesting to see what the statistics are on their site.It seems crazy using Fibonacci with odds on selections.Just chasing losses so much of the time.A filter is applied on BF,no bet if over 3.00.They are actively seeking tipsters. I’ve emailed to say I could be interested.See what their response is.They also offered me a free trial which never came to fruition.
