Russell Blair Racing Review: Horse Racing Betting Tipster

Written by Laura Turner

Russell Blair Racing review

Russell Blair Racing is a horse tipping service with an impressive track record since they launched back in 2019.

The service claims to have made a profit of more than 1300 points since April 2015, which averages at 37 points per month. Return on investment works out at a very attractive 30%, which is higher than what the average horse racing tipster manages to achieve.

On several occasions, Russell Blair claims to have delivered a profit of more than 100 points in a single month!

The chart below shows a fairly steady profit line, although it seems the service struggled during 2017. It looks as though things are back on track now though with more than 200 points profit delivered in 2018.

Russell Blair Racing Review Chart

Russell Blair Racing advises a 200 point betting bank to start with and stakes are advised between 1-3 points. Tips are sent out between 5.30 - 6.30pm each evening for the next day's racing and they are all win singles.

We followed the tips for three months and banked 70.5 points profit at 16.8% ROI. You will find all the results broken down below, alternatively click here to start your FREE trial of Russell Blair Racing.

Month One Results

Our review had a terrible start and we lost 44% of our 200 point starting bank in month one. There had been 101 tips but only 5 of them returned a profit, giving us a total loss of 88.5 points at the available odds.

We were betting at average odds of 14/1 or so which meant losing runs were going to be part and parcel, but it was still tough to face such a big loss in a short space of time.

Month Two Results

It was a much better month for the Russell Blair Racing service with a profit of 27 points at the available odds and even better, a profit of 38.43 points at Betfair SP. There were only three winning bets throughout the whole month, but they all came in at odds of 18/1 and higher giving us some very nice payouts.

Our bank was still 31% down so we had a way to go yet before being in a profitable position overall. We were hoping for another good month to get us back on track.

Month Three Results

It was an amazing month for the Russell Blair Racing service with a profit of 132 points thanks to 8 winning bets at double figure odds. The highlight was a 25/1 winner giving us 50 points profit!

While the review had a tough start, the service has managed to recover and we have finished our three months with an overall profit of 70.5 points at an ROI of 16.8%.

The majority of bets were at high odds (average 14/1 or so) which meant that losing streaks were inevitable. We experienced several runs of 20 consecutive losing bets, with the longest being 31. However, the big winners soon made up for it.

We're very happy to award Russell Blair Racing with a pass.
