Welcome to our Racing Consultants review - A betting service from industry experts David Massey and Rory Delargy who offer well researched horse racing tips daily.


  • Detailed analysis with selections
  • Bets received well in advance of events
  • Transparent results
  • Tips emailed and also available in the member's area of the website


  • Long losing runs at times, but profitable in the long-term
  • Membership fees on the high side, although the annual option offers better value

We have been following Racing Consultants over the past four months as part of our second trial of the service. Unfortunately, after a fantastic end to 2017 the service has struggled throughout the beginning of this year to deliver a profit.

We have had three losing months in a row now and have racked up a loss of 26.12 points at the available odds. However, we did start with a 100 point bank so we are far from danger at this stage.

The nature of this type of service, where you are often betting on high priced horses, means that there often long losing runs and variance can be high. During our second trial we experienced a 72 point drawdown, which could be quite devestating for someone joining the service at the beginning of the downturn.

Our first trial back in 2015/16 painted a different picture, with a profit of 30.82 points at an ROI of 10.6% over a three month period. However, we still experienced the same highs and lows, with 2 out of 3 months making a loss.

The service is run by David Massey and Rory Delargy, who both work in the betting industry – David (also known as Chutney Dave) is a correspondent on William Hill and Bet Racing Nation and also writes for the Betting Insiders Club. Rory is a Timeform Radio and Cheltenham Racecourse pundit, an Irish Field Naps correspondant and William Hill radio guest analyst.

Throughout both trials we have felt confident that the pair knew what they were talking about. The service they offer is much more than just sending out a few tips each day; they also put together a write-up on the member’s blog, offering advice and insight to other races, as well as an analysis of their final selections.

The tipping emails usually arrive around 11.00am and the blog also goes up around the same time or shortly after, so there has been plenty of time before the race to get the bets on. The majority of bets were staked between 1-2pts and varied between single win bets, each-way and the occasional forecasts and each-way doubles.

Racing Consultants Review Graph


It's a tricky one, as we do feel that this is one of the better horse racing tips services around. We have found the service to be very professional and David and Rory really go the extra mile to provide well-researched tips along with in-depth reasoning behind the bets.

For some people though, the losing runs will just be too much to handle and after three losing months in a row they may give up on it. It requires a patient approach and understandably, it won't be suitable for everyone.

There is also the membership price aspect, which is slightly on the high side without a consistent profit coming in each month to cover fees. Investing in an annual membership would be the way to go, which brings the monthly price down to under £25 and makes you more committed to riding the tide to reap the long term rewards.

Based on what we have seen over two separate trials, regretfully we will be downgrading our rating from pass to neutral. We will certainly not be writing this service off, it been around for a long time now and looks set to continue to weather the storm and provide long term profits.

Racing Consultants Review (2nd trial): Update Three

25th February 2018

It's been a poor month again for Racing Consultants where we have experienced another long streak of 28 losing bets in a row. The run is actually still on-going and we're now up to 36 bets without a win. Frustratingly, this puts us back to square one with all of our profit wiped out and our bank sitting at 92.53 points, which is a total loss of 7.47 points.

Racing Consultants Review (2nd trial): Update Two

25th January 2018

We're back with the latest results to our re-trial of Racing Consultants and things haven't been going well at all in January, with the service experiencing a terrible run of 25 losing bets in a row.

The damage isn't too bad at this stage with a loss of 13.4 points for the month, which could quickly be recovered with a couple of winning bets. 

Unfortunately, we seem to have missed a few winning bets during the Christmas break totalling over 30 points profit, which would have given us a different outcome for the month. However, we did add on the days missed to the end of the month so that we have a full month's worth of results to report.

That's the way things fall sometimes and it could just have easily gone the other way. There's plenty of time for the service to get back on track as we will be following the tips for at least another 2-3 months.

Thanks to the great performance in the first month, the service is still showing an overall profit in our review of 12.93 points at the available odds and 6.9 points at BSP.

Racing Consultants Review (2nd trial): Update One

14th December 2017

Almost two years on since we completed our review, we have decided to revisit horse racing tips service Racing Consultants with a new trial to see whether it still warrants a pass rating. 

We have been checking up on the results published to the website and it seems that following our review the service had a terrible time, failing to make a profit in 2016 and finishing the year with a loss of 17 points.

It may have been a correction after the fantastic result achieved in 2015 of over 300 points profit, but we're not sure many subscribers would be willing to stick around for that long without a profit.

Moving on to 2017, things are going much better with the results up until the end of October showing a profit of 129.08 points. 

We've had a great start in our new trial which started on the 14th November, making a profit of 26.33 points at an ROI of 37.6% at the available odds so far.

Racing Consultants Review: Update Two

5th January 2016

It’s been a fantastic second month in our review of Racing Consultants. We have staked 102.5pts and returned a very nice profit of 58.7pts. That’s a huge return on investment of 57.3%! After last month we were really hoping for a comeback and we can safely say, we got it!

Over the month there have been 90 bets, with a mixture of Win and Each Way bets, Forecasts, Doubles & Trixies. The highlight of the month was hitting a 20/1 winner, which pushed us right past the 40pt profit mark.

This wasn’t the only high odds winner this month – we also had a 14/1 at the beginning of the month, followed by a 22/1 although that was a 0.5pt e/w stake. The month finished off nicely with a double stake coming in at 8/1.

At Betfair SP there was a profit of 44.19pts, with an ROI of 43.1% – less than the advised prices but still very impressive.

Racing Consultants seem to have really hit their stride now. We have another month left of our trial and then we should be able to give our final rating.

Racing Consultants Review: Update One

6th December 2015

It’s been a poor start to our review of Racing Consultants with a loss of 13.52pts from our 100pt starting bank at the advised odds. There were a total of 90 bets throughout the month, averaging at around 3 per day, with a mixture of Win and Each Way bets and also the occasional forecast bet.

We also recorded the bets at Betfair SP, which resulted in a 22.48pt loss. The Betfair SP odds were often shorter than the advised prices, with the selections being well backed. There were quite a few close calls throughout the month, with lots of 2nd places where we were just missing out.

The selections have been emailed out daily, usually in the morning or night before so there’s plenty of time to get the bets on. The email contains a shortlist of the selections with advised odds and stakes, but there is also a member’s area on the website, which is definitely worth checking out.

Here David and Rory have a blog where they post a detailed analysis on each race of interest. Below is an example of some of the advice we received this month.

Wolverhampton 3.00 Handicap (2m)

One or two of these have something to prove here, not last Mick Appleby’s Brassbound, who threw in a stinker here last year when in the middle of a rich vein of form. He finished last of five that day, never looking likely to win, and the excuse given was that he didn’t seem to handle the quicker Tapeta surface. Difficult to see why he should handle it any better today, then, and 5-2 looks a terrible price.

Favourite Rosenbaum has yet to tackle two miles, with most of his best form coming at a mile and a half, and although he clearly goes well on All-Weather surfaces and is going the right way, the unknown of the trip makes him look short enough at 7-4 too. However, if he gets the trip, he’s the likeliest winner.

The two to concentrate on could be last years winner Entihaa, who goes well at Wolverhampton and ran much better than his finishing position suggested at Kempton last time out (did plenty early from wide draw, only faded in the last 150yds) and Longshadow, who often runs well in the face of stiff tasks and stays well. He’s got form on the Tapeta surface and shouldn’t be far away. With doubts around the front two the forecast looks a bit of value too.”

The in-depth research paid off on this particular race, as the forecast bet came good and we made a profit of 15.95pts from the advised bets.

As well as this, David and Rory also send out a weekly summary with the "latest eyecatchers" that they have spotted during the week.

It’s been a disappointing 1st month, but we’ve got high hopes that this pair will keep up the hard work and turn things around next month.

Racing Consultants Review: Introduction

Racing Consultants is a betting service brought to us by two well-known horseracing enthusiasts – David Massey and Rory Delargy. David (or Chutney Dave as he’s otherwise known) is a correspondent on William Hill Radio and Bet Racing Nation. Rory is a Timeform Radio and Cheltenham Racecourse pundit and an Irish Field Naps correspondent. He is also a guest analyst on William Hill Radio.

Between them they have a wealth of knowledge going back decades. They decided to put their heads together and start this service back in June 2014. Since then they have made over £4500 of profit to £10 stakes from their tips.

Breakdown of P/L for 2015:

  • January -25.25
  • February +11.92
  • March -3.23
  • April +37.11
  • May +73.38
  • June -3.79
  • July -17.69
  • August +128.67
  • September +21.56
  • October +12.15
  • Total +234.83pts

Each selection is the result of both David & Rory’s combined knowledge and research. They focus on a mixture of Flat, All Weather and National Hunt racing and can sometimes include multiples and backing each-way. All selections come with a detailed analysis along with advised stakes and odds.

Stakes are set between 4-8pts and a 100pt bank is recommended to cope with any drawdowns.

So far it all sounds impressive, which you would expect from two experts in the industry (although this isn’t always the case!).

Racing Consultants does have a higher price tag than the average service at £39.99 per month. They do however offer an annual membership for £299, which would bring it down to just under £25 per month.

We will record all of our results using the advised odds as well as the Betfair SP results to see how they hold up.

We will be back next month with our first update.
