Ambrose Value Tips Review: Horse Tipping Service

Ambrose Value Tips Review

Ambrose Value Tips racked up 210 points profit with an amazing ROI of 60% during their five month proofing at Mega Tipsters.

The service is run by Garry, who is heavily involved in the horse racing industry, having owned a racehorse that became an elite mare rated 133 at her peak.

He has always had a passion for racing, stemming from his dad being a greyhound trainer, so he had spent a lot of time at the dog tracks. He loved the buzz from it and later became interested in horse racing too.

Fast forward 30 years and he has built up an in-depth knowledge of the sport and has a great foundation for success as a horse racing tipster.

The tips are sent out by email, usually in the morning, but sometimes in the evening before the races if he spots early value.

They come attached in a spreadsheet document and there are also screenshots of Oddschecker showing the available odds at the time the email was sent out.

We followed the service for three months and our full results and conclusion are reported below.

Month Two Update

It was a tale of near-misses in month two of our Ambrose Value Tips review, with several placed bets at odds as high as 66/1. Unfortunately, the service didn't manage to finish with a profit for the second month in a row.

Given that our betting bank was still in a relatively good position we decided to carry on in hope of a big win coming in.

Review Summary

After three losing months in a row we decided not to continue any further with our Ambrose Value Tips review. We had lost 34.9 points overall which worked out as a 23.3% decrease to our betting bank.

This wasn't a huge decrease and as the service focused on betting at high odds, a few big winners could have soon turned things around. However, there's also every chance of that not happening and another three losing months to follow, so we decided to move on.

Given our hugely successful trial of Hanbury Racing Tips, another service that we reviewed from the Mega Tipsters platform, we felt this service was a bit of a let down.

Such good reviews like that are a rarity though and although this one had turned out to be a fail, we looked forward to reviewing more tipping services from the platform in the future.
