Welcome to our Mr Smith review - A horse racing tips service from Bet Fan that sends out daily value bets including win, each way and accas with advised stakes.

Note: This service is n​o longer available. Take a look at some of our "passed" services here.

We’ve come to the end of our review of Mr Smith, the horse racing tipster from Bet Fan. The trial got off to a poor start with us losing 33.02pts in the first month, followed by a rocky second month where we saw some improvement before hitting another bad run. The third month was to be a make or break situation and unfortunately it ended up being the latter.

We finished the review with a loss of 97pts, making it 3 out of 3 losing months and a 51.5% decrease to our 200pt starting bank.

Mr Smith’s tips have been proofed by Bet Fan for less than 12 months but have had some excellent results so far. We received tips daily along with advised stakes between 2-5pts, but there wasn’t any comments or any explanation behind the bets, which would have been good to see.

There was also an issue with the timing of some of the emails, as stated in one of our previous updates. Sometimes there were several emails each day, coming at various times from morning to night, but there were also quite a few arriving later than 10pm and past midnight, which isn’t ideal for everyone. Often by the morning the prices had shortened so we ended up losing some value.

The odds ranged from 1.44 all the way up to 26.00, with an average of 5.54. The majority of the time we were able to get the same or better than the advised odds, but it did require us checking emails throughout the day incase of any extra tips.

Mr Smith Betting Review Performance
 
In the final couple of weeks of our review we noticed that Mr Smith was starting to include doubles a lot more, in fact there was now more doubles than single bets. We assume this was an attempt to try a different method out to improve the results. At this stage we were getting dangerously close to busting our bank, with 52.43pts left from the 200pts we started with.

He generally coupled selections with a short priced favourite in 3 or 4 doubles. There was some success with this at first but after a few races where the favourite didn’t win, the losses started to add up fast. As you can see in the example below, where we lost 20pts in one day.

Mr Smith has two pricing options:

• £49.00 (+VAT) for 28 days
• £98.00 (+VAT) for 90 days

We had high hopes for the service, so it’s a shame to see things go pear-shaped during our trial. Yes it’s true that a few wins at long odds could turn everything around, but the short priced tips have not been winning consistently enough to keep us afloat.

At our highest point we were 50.03pts up, but at our lowest point we were 147.57pts down. We did not have one profitable month and we lost over half of our betting bank – all in all we cannot recommend this service and unfortunately have to give it a fail rating.


Mr Smith Review: Update Two

25th January 2016

We’re back with the second update to our review of Mr Smith, the horse racing tipster from the Bet Fan platform. The results this month have been quite baffling, with the service building up over 80pts profit at one stage, but then finishing the month with a loss of -8.95pts at the advised odds. We were sometimes able to obtain better odds ourselves, which boosted our winnings slightly and we finished the month with a small loss of -2.45pts.

The Betfair SP odds had a much higher average of 6.06 vs our 5.14, and resulted in a profit of +10.63pts. It’s great to see the BSP odds holding up. One notable bet was an each way tip at 25/1 that placed and gave us an 8pt profit, but the BSP odds had more than doubled and paid out 22.7pts profit!

Unfortunately, overall the service is still showing a loss overall, with a 17.7% decrease to our 200pt starting bank.

Our betting bank has not been in too much trouble yet with this service, but we have witnessed some huge swings so far. It is hard to predict what is going to happen next in this review… it could really go either way.

We’ll be back next month with our final update and conclusion.


Mr Smith Review: Update One

29th December 2015

We have completed the first month of our trial of Mr Smith, the horse racing tipster from Bet Fan. The service got off to a good start, building the profit up nicely and reached a high of 45pts. Towards the end of the month, the wins were becoming less frequent and with most bets being for a 5pt stake each time, the losses were adding up quickly. The month ended with a loss of 33pts at the odds we were able to obtain, and the advised odds slightly less at 30.8pts.

We were able to get the advised odds the majority of the time and the average odds ended up being the same for both. However, the timing of some of the emails was a bit sporadic. We received 2-3 emails each day, at random times – 9am, 11am, 5pm, 7pm… you get the idea.

This wasn’t too much of a problem, but we also had quite a few coming in after 10pm and even past midnight on one occasion. That’s ok for the night owls amongst us, but this just isn’t suitable for a lot of people. We didn’t see some of these late tips until the morning and by this time the odds had been cut.

Aside from this, the service has been very professional and the tips are clear and easy to follow.

Despite the poor start to this service, there is still hope that Mr Smith can turn it around. The tips have had average odds of 4.52 during the first month and would only need a strike rate of 22.1% to break even. It’s currently at 30.7%, so a comeback could be on the cards.

We’ll be back next month with another update.


Mr Smith Review: Introduction

26th November 2015

We are starting a review of another Bet Fan tipster today who goes by the name of Mr Smith. Mr Smith is fairly new on the scene, but he has proved that he is worth his weight in gold after his horse racing selections made a fantastic profit during the proofing period.

Since April 2015 his tips have produced 772.17pts profit with a return on investment of 21.26%. This works out at an average of 97pts profit per month. Using bookies with Best Odds Guaranteed would have added an extra 260pts on top of this. His best month was back in June, when he made over 300pts profit in one month!

If you prefer to use a betting exchange, betting at Betfair SP has resulted in a very impressive 629pts profit so far. This is an average of 78pts profit per month and a return on investment of 17.37%.

Mr Smith says his success comes from hard work and dedication – he doesn’t have inside contacts or have some sort of holy grail – it’s just pure graft!

Not every bet will win, although I expect to maintain a very healthy strike rate, I will have losing bets, but by following the staking advice and setting up the correct betting bank initially, will mean you can take losing bets in your stride and return a very good profit from the winning bets. Remember, profitable betting is a marathon, not a sprint, stick to the plan and you will be rewarded!

– Mr Smith

The selections are sent out most days, and are usually Win bets, but there are occasionally some Each Way bets and Doubles. There is also the option to receive the tips via SMS if you wish.

He recommends using a 200pt bank (so £2000 would be needed for £10 per point) and stakes are advised between 1-5pts each.

As with all Bet Fan tipsters, a full history of results is available on the website. There is a handy tool that lets you filter through the results to get whatever information you need.

Mr Smith’s tips are available for £49 (+VAT) monthly, or £98 (+VAT) quarterly.

We will be testing the service out over the next three months. We’ll record our results using the advised stakes with the suggested odds, the odds we were able to get, and also at Betfair SP.
