Hello and welcome to the latest Betting Insiders Club news update.
Insiders Club News
Nick Hardman is an integral part of the team here at the Insiders Club and he provides the flagship Club Portfolio tips (Big Race Coverage) which cover every weekend and many of the better quality midweek festivals such as Cheltenham, Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood.
The second campaign in 2016 ended with cracking gains of +851 points profit combined with a commendable +31% Return on Investment and the Win/Place Strike Rate ended at 23% over the 12 month period.
We suggest a 200pt operating bank at the start of each campaign and to date this has coped comfortably with the inevitable ups an downs along the way. The results are based on the suggested 2pt level stakes, either 2pts straight win or 1pt Each-Way and the prevailing prices at the time the selections were made available.
Nick specialises in the big field open handicaps and will often go with more than one selection depending on how the market is shaped. For those priced around 10/1 upwards he will suggest an Each-Way play as a placing often recovers the stakes and some which helps both protect and keep the bank ticking over.
Well that was the previous year so how did the latest completed campaign perform during 2017:-
It was always going to be a tall order to follow on from the dizzy heights of 2016 but overall 2017 achieved a decent return with 8 of the 12 individual months ending with profits. March was the first dip in results but a stonking April soon sorted that out and the Sept/Oct blip was quickly recovered with a cracking November. The suggested bank coped admirably along the way and the initial 200pts was more than doubled with +335pts profit although as ever we recognise that individual folk may have a different tally depending on which books and prices they were able to get on with. All in all a very commendable performance by Nick which has been reflected by the numerous positive comments posted by the members who have enjoyed following his endeavours.
With close to 3 months under our belt during the 2018 campaign how have things fared so far this year?
To be honest the first couple of months proved to be tricky and it cannot be coincidental that the UK weather played its part with loads of meetings being lost to the cold snap and plenty that did go ahead being run on extreme going with few finishers. For the first time in decades the Cheltenham Festival opened with “Heavy” in the going description but thankfully the track held up well and Nick’s selections performed really well with over 100pts gained over the 4 days at Prestbury Park. As a result the year to date P&L looks a lot healthier and hopefully we can kick on from that as the new flat season is soon to get underway!
Although the Big Race Coverage is a key component of the Insiders Club there is plenty of other quality content to keep members busy with. The monthly Members Reports are published in a handy 52 page A5 format and contain numerous fresh ideas and strategies devised by our team of industry respected contributors.
Each month we take a selection of the micro methods detailed in the Reports and put them through their paces in live trials on the Club community/forum. Alongside these are the qualifiers from a number of proven strategies which when combined provide a great start point for members who enjoy a punt on a daily basis but may not have the time to carry out their own in-depth form study. Each morning the qualifiers are detailed on the forum threads and Members can develop a portfolio approach around the angles that suit their own particular style of punting.
Together we can prosper
