Welcome to our Fantastic Eights review - A horse racing betting service from the Bet Fan network, which sends daily value tips for small field handicap races.

Pros

  • Established service that has delivered a profit during two separate trials
  • Emails sent at regular times and include a message for "no bet" days.
  • Transparent results
  • Cons

  • Long losing runs
  • We experienced poor results at BSP, however long-term the service has produced a profit at BSP.
  • Inflated staking plan, but results are still attractive using 1 point level stakes
  • We’ve reached the end of our second trial of Fantastic Eights, a horse racing betting service from the Bet Fan network. As with the first time around, it has been a rocky ride but after four months we finished with a profit of 341.75pts at an impressive ROI of 25.2% at the available odds, more than doubling our starting bank with a 114% increase. 

    We have also calcuated the profit that could have been achieved using flat 1 point stakes and this works out at a respectable 68.35 points, which is an average of 17 points per month.

    In our first trial back in 2016 we made a profit of 95.65 points at an ROI of 5.9%, which makes it more than 437.4 points banked in both trials at the advised stakes or 87.48 points betting a level 1 point per selection.

    We can't argue with those results - it's a clear pass for Fantastic Eights.

    The service is run by Frankie, who like many of us spent a lot of time hopping from one betting system to the next without any success. He eventually decided to focus on developing his own strategies and after putting in a lot of hard work, Fantastic Eights was born.

    I started focusing on horse racing and mainly handicap races and small fields. This is when around three years ago I had some eureka moments and patterns started to appear in my strategies, which I have managed to fine tune over the last couple of years.

    – Frankie, Fantastic Eights

    His strategy uses races with on average 5-6 runners per race, but sometimes stretches to 8 runners. Selections are sent out daily, usually between 11am-12pm. This is later than the usual tipster services that often send out their selections the evening before or early morning, but Frankie prefers to monitor the markets and make sure the running conditions are ok. There is also an email sent out if it is a “no bet” day.

    The tips come with advised odds and stakes, which are set at 5pts per bet. We were able to get the advised odds on most occasions, but there were times when the prices started to shorten soon after.

    The average available odds were 11.69 in trial 1 and 11.73 in trial 2, so not much difference there. In both trials the selections ranged between short priced favourites from evens upwards to huge priced outsiders up to 201.00. This meant that we often experienced long losing runs, sometimes with more than 20 losing bets in a row, but we did manage to hit some high priced winners which made it up for it.

    Save

    The Betfair SP results for this service were poor in contrast to the odds that we obtained at the time of receiving the tips, however the service has reported a profit at BSP in the long-term. At the time of writing, in the past 12 months the service has generated a profit of 140.33 points at an ROI 3.15% to BSP.

    Fantastic Eights Review Graph

    Summary

    This service is not for the faint-hearted and requires patience and the right mindset to be handle the variance and ride out the bad runs. 

    The longest losing run that we experienced in the first trial was 30 bets and in the second trial it wasn't far off, with a streak of 25 losing bets. Psychologically this can be difficult, especially as a new subscriber, so it's important to bear this in mind.

    If you can get past that hurdle, there are plenty of rewards to be reaped from this service. 

    We gave the service a 3.5 star rating in our first trial, but after the success of our second trial we feel that it is deserving of an upgrade to 4.5 stars.

    Fantastic Eights Review (2nd trial): Update Three

    13th February 2018

    It's been another cracking month for Fantastic Eights with a profit of 152.2 points at the available odds and 36.79 points at Betfair SP.

    This is based on using the advised stakes which are generally 5 points per bet. We have also been calculating results using flat 1 point stakes with our starting bank adjusted to 60 points and this has resulted in a profit of 30.44 points over the last month and 48.42 points overall.

    This works out as an 80% increase to our bank in three months.

    This service experiences a lot of variance due to the range of odds that we are betting on, which have been as high as 100/1 during our second trial. On that basis we would like to carry on tracking results for another month to see what happens and we will report back soon.


    Fantastic Eights Review (2nd trial): Update Two

    14th January 2018

    Fantastic Eights has made a much needed recovery since our last update, thanks to a 40/1 winner netting us 200 points profit at the advised stakes. 

    At the available odds we now have an overall profit of 89.9 points at an ROI of 14.3%. We have already witnessed a drawdown of more than 135 points so far, so we're not feeling too comfortable at the moment.

    We have also been recording results to 1 point level stakes with an adjusted bank of 60 points (based on the advised bank of 300 points divided by 5, which is the usual stake per selection). This shows a much more realistic profit of 17.98 points so far with a 30% increase to the bank.

    Fantastic Eights Review (2nd trial): Update One

    12th December 2017

    It's been nearly two years since we completed our review of Fantastic Eights, so we decided to revisit the service with a new trial to see whether it is still worthy of a pass rating. 

    The results reported on the Betfan proofing page show a profit of around 1300 points amassed at the advised odds since our review. However, the majority of the bets for this service are advised at stakes of 5 points each, so this works out as a profit of approximately 260 points to level 1 point stakes.

    This averages out at approximately 11-12 points profit per month, which is still a respectable amount.

    Of course, this is at the advised prices so these results cannot be verified, which is why we have started a new trial that we intend to run for 3-6 months to see how the odds hold up and how our results will compare.

    The first set of results are in and brace yourselves because it looks like we are in for that same rocky ride that we experienced during our first trial.

    We think you'll agree that it's a pretty disastrous start, with our bank depleting by almost 50% at one stage before making a slight recovery.

    We'll continue recording results and will report back in a month's time with an update.

    Fantastic Eights Review: Update Two

    27th January 2016

    We’re back with an update to our review of Fantastic Eights and what a cracking month it has been! We recorded a massive profit of 222.30pts at the advised odds, and at the odds we were able to obtain we made profit of 198.55pts, with a return on investment of 36.8%. Since the start of the review we have increased our 300pt starting bank by 76.5%!

    There were some big priced winners along the way – Paddy Wells 16/1, Billy Bronco 18/1, Lochnell 11/1 – to name a few.

    The average odds this month were 10.47 and each bet is staked at 5pts, so a losing streak could really deplete the bank fast. In fact this month we did have a losing sequence of 22 bets where we lost -110pts. Fortunately the wins managed to outweigh the losses.

    Adding to last month’s profit, this brings us to a total of 253.35pts profit at advised odds and 229.60pts profit at the available odds. Seriously impressive!

    We also recorded the results at Betfair SP, which achieved a profit of 147.84pts. That’s quite a big gap compared to the advised prices, but still a fantastic profit and that also includes the 5% Betfair commission charge.

    Fantastic Eights Review: Update One

    26th December 2015

    It’s been an interesting first month in our review of the Fantastic Eights service. At our lowest point we were nearly 76pts down, and at our highest point we were 150pts up! We finished the month with a tidy profit of 31pts.

    The 300pt starting bank is there for a reason and has been able to handle the variance so far, but still… this service is not for the faint hearted!

    We have generally been able to get the advised odds, with just a couple of occasions where they had been cut shortly after receiving the tips. We ended up being able to match the profit made at the advised odds. The tips have been sent out at various times in the morning before the races, but mostly between 11am-12pm.

    We have also been recording the results at Betfair SP and these have not had much success this month – in fact, quite the opposite, with a loss of 54.5pts. Interestingly, the average BSP odds were higher at 13.48, with the advised odds at 12.31. We know that Fantastic Eights have managed to make a good profit at Betfair SP historically, so hopefully it will even out over the course of the review.

    Fantastic Eights Review: Introduction

    25th November 2015

    Fantastic Eights is a horse racing betting service from the Bet Fan platform. The service is run by tipster Frankie, who has been developing his own horse racing strategies over a number of years. He focuses mainly on handicap races and smaller fields – with an average of 5-6 runners per race.

    Bet Fan have been proofing his selections since March 2015 and over this period he has made a profit of 1664pts with a return on investment of 34.7%. This works out at an average of 185pts profit per month! This doesn’t include Best Odds Guaranteed, which would have added an extra 183pts profit. Back in May 2015, the service topped the Bet Fan top ten tipsters table (try saying that fast!) with a huge 399.38pts profit for the month.

    For those who prefer to use a betting exchange, the service has returned 589.73pts profit at Betfair SP with a 12.36% return on investment. Although there was a lot less profit made here than at the advised odds, it’s still a very respectable figure with an average 65.5pts profit per month.

    The service concentrates on races with 8 or less runners and the selections are straight win bets. Frankie advises you to put the bets on ASAP to get the best value, as the prices often shorten throughout the day. The tips are sent out later in the day rather than early morning, as he likes to monitor the markets before making his final choice, but they will arrive with plenty of time before the race.

    There’s a full record of the results going back to the beginning of the service. One of the cool features at Bet Fan is being able to filter the results by month, odds (SP, BSP, Advised and BOG) and stakes (Advised or Flat). You are then presented with the corresponding graph followed by some statistics and the actual selections. This makes it really easy to get the exact information you need and see how the service has been performing.

     

    Fantastic Eights Performance

     

    For the staking plan, he advises a 300pt bank – so £1 per point would require a £300 bank, £10 per point would require a £3000 bank, etc. Stakes are advised alongside each selection, but you can opt to use level stakes if you prefer.

    Fantastic Eights costs £38.00 (+ VAT) per month, or £76.00 (+ VAT) per quarter.

    We will be recording the results from this service over the next three months, including the Advised Odds, Odds Available and Betfair SP.

    Pros

  • Established service that has delivered a profit during two separate trials
  • Emails sent at regular times and include a message for “no bet” days.
  • Transparent results
  • Cons

  • Long losing runs
  • We experienced poor results at BSP, however long-term the service has produced a profit at BSP.
  • Inflated staking plan, but results are still attractive using 1 point level stakes
