Ed Culham Tips Review: Weekend & Festival Horse Racing Tips

Ed Culham Tips Review

Tipsters Empire say that Ed Culham shows his knowledge of horse racing is out of this world with his phonomenal write ups.

They scouted him as a blog contributor and say he produces some of the best content that they have come across.

Since joining the platform in July '19, the reported results show a profit of 63.9 points at an ROI of 35.5% and a strike rate of 31.4%.

He takes a careful approach, focusing on weekend racing and major festivals and likes to stake each-way, particularly on selections at 10/1 or more. This way he has a more manageable group of horses to follow and get to know throughout the racing season.

I believe that there is virtually no knowledge that can’t be gained from watching a horse run, and racing fans are now fortunate with such comprehensive race replay services enabling us to be ‘everywhere at once.’

How did the horse move on the ground? How did they respond to pressure? Did they receive a heavy ride? Were they perhaps being kept for another day? The answer to all these questions comes from careful race analysis.

There is so much racing, and so many potential betting opportunities that I feel in order to be successful you have to find your niche and stick to it.

Ed Culham

Tips are sent out by email, generally around 5pm on a Friday for the weekend races or 5pm the evening before any festivals.

They recommend a starting bank of 150 points and staking advice is included with each selection.

We recorded tips at the advised, available and BSP odds and provided a monthly update of our results.

Update One Results

The first month of our Ed Culham Tips review ended with a loss of 9.75 points after a disappointing performance during the Cheltenham festival. Unfortunately, the month was cut short due to UK and Irish racing being put on pause so there wasn't chance for the service to attempt a recovery.

Update Two Results

There was a small gain of 2 points in month two of our Ed Culham Tips review, which meant that we were still in a losing position of -7.75 points overall. Betfair SP results were slightly better with a profit of 4.79 points in total.

Update Three Results

There was another small profit added to the pot in month three of our Ed Culham Tips review. At the advised odds we finished the month with 1.08 points profit, which means our bank was still down by 4.4% overall.

We missed out on some bets due to our subscription ending without realising, so we added on the extra dates to the end to make up for it.

Review Summary

Ed Culham Tips achieved 3 out of 4 winning months in our review, but unfortunately we still didn't make an overall profit. The gains were fairly small and not enough to recover the loss made in the first month.

Overall, we finished with a loss of 6.32 points, which worked out as just 4.2% of our betting bank so there wasn't too much damage done. At Betfair SP there was a small profit of 6.42 points in total.

Ed put out some great content with his emails, with detailed previews and write-ups for tips. He displayed excellent knowledge of his sport and really gave us confidence in following his tips.

Sadly, the results just didn't make the grade but we were impressed with aspects of the service and feel it may be worth checking again in the future. For now, we have given it a "neutral" rating.
