Trackside Review: Profitable Horse Racing Betting Tipster

Trackside Review

PuntHub say that Trackside is "one of the most impressive services" they have ever come across and we can see why!

According to the published results at the time of our review, Trackside delivered a profit of 207.6 points at an impressive ROI of 24.1% since launcing in December 2016.

The service reported consistent profits with just 3 losing months out of a total of 15 and the average profit per month worked out as a respectable 13.84 points. The sales page implies that the tipster gets his information directly from the 'trackside'.

During our Trackside review, we recorded results and banked 41.71 points profit at an impressive ROI of 36.3%.

All the results for the three winning months are broken down below. Alternatively, click here to get started with Trackside.

Month One Results

Our Trackside review got off to a good start with 4.6 points profit at the available odds (15.9% ROI). The results at Betfair SP were also positive, with 3.42 points profit (11.8% ROI).

It was definitely been a case of quality over quantity with just 15 selections over the course of the month. There were 2 winning each-way bets and 5 which placed, so that resulted in a strike rate of 46.7%. We considered that to be high for this style of horse racing betting where the odds averaged 8.58.

The tips were mainly sent on the same day as the races, before 12.30pm. Stakes were advised between 0.5 and 4 points, with the majority being either 2 point win or 1 point each-way.

There was not any formal advice for a starting bank, so we decided to go 100 points.

Month Two Results

A second profitable month generated an additional 13.93 points profit at 34.8% ROI.

The tips performed well at Betfair SP again too, taking the total profit to 15.76 points (22.8% ROI) over the two months.

We found Trackside to be very easy to follow. There were just 15 tips during the first month and another 21 this month. Our bank was not stretched at all as we enjoyed a really good return on investment.

Review Summary

Our Trackside review finished with 41.71 points profit (36.3% ROI). If only all tipster reviews were this simple!

It was plain sailing all the way, with a consistent 46.2% strike rate. This made losing bets easy to deal with as we were never too far away from another winner.

We love the fact that this is more of a selective style of service, so we were not inundated with tips every day. The only minor criticism is that negative that we didn't receive an email to let us know that it was a "no bet" day.

To be honest, when we first read that Trackside gets their information straight from the side of the course, we were thinking "here we go again, another tipster claiming to have inside information". Whether they do or not we still don't know for certain, but whatever they are doing, it is working.

It has been a joy to follow Trackside and one of the easiest "pass" ratings we have given to a tipster service.
