Winning Favourites Review: Horse Racing Tips Service

Winning Favourites is a horse racing tips service that reports a high strike rate, making it ideal for a small starting bank.

The biggest drawdown that the tipster experienced during their three month proofing with the vendor was 9 points. On that basis, they say a 25 point starting bank would be ample.

Since July 2021, the service has reported 62.52 points profit from betting on favourites.

Simply backing all favourites is not profitable. Winning Favourites have calculated that if you had bet on all of them in the past ten years you would have an ROI of approximately -2.7%. 

This tipster has managed to find a way to narrow the selections down and betting on only the favourites that offer value has seen his ROI fly up to 14%.

It can be much easier to deal with psychologically if you have regular winners coming in, rather than having to ride out lots of long losing streaks.

We don't come across horse racing tipsters that just back favourites too often, so we were interested to see how the review would go. You can see our full results at the advised odds, available odds and Betfair SP below.

Month One Update

Finding winning favourites was proving to be difficult in our review of this horse racing tips service. We finished the first month with a loss of 11.76 points at the available odds, although BSP results had been a bit better with 5.25 points lost.

Month Two Update

It was another tricky month for Winning Favourites and we just about broke even by the end of it. A small profit of 2.32 points was made at Betfair SP and if we were to include Best Odds Guaranteed we would have recorded a profit.

We don't like to rely on BOG though, so we don't include it in our results. Bookies have been known to take it away from some customers and they have various rules on what time and what races it counts for, so we go by the original odds given.

We want to see services that can make a profit at those odds and then any extra generated from BOG is a nice bonus.

Review Summary

Winning Favourites was a very simple horse racing tips service to follow, with an average of two bets per day to be backed as a one point win single bet.

Sadly we were unable to make an overall profit from the service in the three months that we tracked bets from them and we finished with a small loss of 1.45 points.

At Betfair SP we recorded 7.78 points profit, which was a nice plus point. If we had included "Best Odds Guaranteed" in our results, there would have been bonus profit that would have given us a profit over the three months.

The service showed some promise during our review and if you have access to BOG it may be worth following. As we don't include it in our results and base our reviews only on the standard results, we gave the service a "Neutral" rating.
