The 2018 season will be the 9th year I have been providing tips for hunter chases online. For the first 3 years from 2010 I provided my tips for free and then I started charging for my tips in 2013 and every season has shown a profit. I have listed the estimated profits for each season below. Now I only put estimates up because for the first couple of years I would often send the preview out before the races were priced up so there was no advised price as such to take. I also didn’t put points next to my tips for the 3 h=Hunter Chase meetings so anything from those meetings aren’t counted (this season I will be putting points to my Hunter Chase meeting selections). I also think that people following any tipsters will often get different prices from those recommended and that SP isn’t always a reliable guide either as often my tips are shorter than people following would have got on at. So the profits listed are a guide only.
I firmly believe that Hunter Chases are the best type of race to make money on and until I focused on them I certainly wasn’t a profitable punter. You have to be prepared to put in the homework though and arguably it takes more homework than it does for a normal race. One of the reasons I started charging in the first place was because it was taking a fair amount of my time and it also allowed me to go from just putting a tip up to providing a more in depth preview, which I think any good tipster should be doing.
For me though the tips are only a part of the service because I write in depth previews for all the races and write a review for each race as well. If you have read any of the free previews I have posted then you will know how in depth I can go. Obviously not all of them will be as detailed as the Foxhunter/Hunter Chase night previews, but I think it gives a good example of the sort of thing you can expect if you sign up.
Previews are sent out via email usually the night before the race and the selections are given a suggested stake between 1 and 5 points. 5 point bets are pretty rare and for the first time I didn’t actually put one up at all last season. There are due to be 95 races this season (starting on January 9th at Taunton) and I charge £50 for the season. That means it works out at about 50p a race. Payment is made via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org although get in contact if you need to pay via another method. Feel free to contact me via email or Twitter if you have any further questions.
