The Weekend Bulletin (Sat 15th July’17)
There was no joy from last weekend’s free tips despite the fact that all 3 went off a lot shorter than the morning prices, so I guess Nick wasn’t alone in thinking they were overpriced.
The brand new Insiders Members Report (Issue 147) was published a short while ago and one of the articles has already piqued the interest of a number of readers. The author Gary Boswell has run a successful tipping service of his own for many years now but has also been an avid fan of Nick Hardman’s Big Race Coverage for over two years and in his piece he highlighted a number of findings that he believes have led to an increase in Nick’s profits.
Now when your starting point is in excess of 1250pts for the 2015/16 campaigns we can understand why so many of Nick’s followers would have stood up and took notice!
The following is just one of the nuggets from Gary’s research:-
Follow me Follow
What’s the best way to follow a tipster? How do you follow yours? Obediently do as you are told and never miss a tip? Of course that’s a proven way to profit if you select someone of the calibre of our very own Nick Hardman. I’ve followed him for two years now and can vouch for the fact that his scores are in the ‘most impressive’ category.
Forecast betting at York:
York had always been a positive track for me to play on and when I started factoring Nick’s picks into my own form study and figures, I immediately started improving my overall strike rates and profits. So began my theory that Nick does score consistently better at some tracks over others. Two of my bogey tracks – Musselburgh and Newbury – are also two that Nick has been less successful at in my two year watch.
Another track Nick scores well on is Leopardstown and most significantly for me, Chester which is a track I lived next door to for six years and another of my positive experience tracks to which Nick has added further profit optimization when his picks were added into my figures.
That forms another filter that I’ll come to in a moment because as all this was crystallizing in my mind and forming into the filters I have now been following for nearly 12 months, Nick banged in the first and second in the 2016 Ebor at York from just two selections.
I cannot overemphasize the enormity of this achievement. I’ve always liked the value of a CSF – especially in big field races – where I have a strong view or source and here was a tipster I was already realising had what it takes giving me one that paid over 100/1 on the Betfair exchange.
What’s more, Nick has done it twice more in the past year including one today as I write. Golden Apollo and The Wagon Wheel paid over £110 to a £6 stake (three selections) in the Macmillan Handicap sprint (17/6/17) bringing my plus figure using this filter to over 200 points in just under 12 months. Most crucially for me, it has kept stakes low and achieved an ROI of nearly 500%. 12 months is early days perhaps but that is what I call a system!

Nick Hardman’s Big Race Selections – Sat 15th July’17
Another good trends race and we have 4 qualifiers in Victory Bond, Ballet Concerto, Sixties Groove and Scarlet Dragon. Victory Bond represents William Haggas who has won this twice recently and is 12-38 with his runners in the last fortnight. I also like Scarlet Dragon at an each way price. Sixties Groove ran well at Royal Ascot and completes the shortlist. The one I am passing over is Ballet Concerto who may not be crying out for a step up in trip given his best form is all over a mile. I hope he does not prove me wrong.
Sixties Groove @7/1
Victory Bond @8/1
Scarlet Dragon @14/1 e/w (1/4 odds, 4 places)
