Gorrie's Winter Warmers


Alex Gorrie ended 2009 in style when 16/1 advice, Greek Secret, won a Lingfield handicap in the capable hands of Tony Cullane. Gorrie carried his winning form over into the New Year. On 2 January he landed a nice double on the all-weather, courtesy of Tamino (5/2) and Dontuwishitwereso (13/2, advised at 10/1). That day’s profit amounted to 365%, a fantastic way to see in 2010.

    Despite the serious disruptions caused by the frost and snow, Gorrie has maintained his fine early form. Winners on the sand have included Look Officer (15/2), Exceedthewildman (6/1) and Fazbee (6/1), while successful jumping advices include recent Catterick winner Ballabriggs (13/2).

    Another service in excellent form since the turn of the year is Gamblers Reunited. Winning advices include 9/2 Master Overseer, Elusive Warrior and Qozak (both advised at 5/2) and 2/1 Tiddliwinks. One extremely useful feature of Gamblers Reunited’s service is that the tips are advised the day before the race, allowing potential punters plenty of time to root out the best prices. It’s worth noting that the four winners mentioned above all recorded starting prices significantly lower than the advised price.

    PJA’s National Hunt service was quickly amongst the winners following the resumption of racing over the sticks at Kempton on 16 January. The Richard Guest-trained Dan Buoy, successful at Southwell on the 19th, at a rewarding 10/1 and Ballybriggs (13/2) were among the winning tips.

    PJA’s All Weather service was also quickly into its stride. Winning advices include Rubenstar and Grey Command (both 5/1) and Elusive Ronnie and The Geester, two 11/2 advices that helped produce a near 11 point profit on 12 January. There was also Tourist, a 12/1 selection who prevailed at Wolverhampton two days later.

    Given the snowy start to 2010, it’s no surprise that many of the big stables have been keeping their stars wrapped up. But with the Cheltenham Festival less than two months away, there’s sure to be an improvement in the quality of racing over the next four weeks, starting with Prestbury’s big trials day this Saturday.

Great Graphs and Functionality Sign up for free to Besttipping.

Besttipping receive selections from all the tipsters well before the start time of the event. These selections (the same ones they are sending out to their regular subscribers) are later settled against the day's results and entered into the Besttipping database. The result is that we are able to display a complete and accurate (and above all, independently verifiable!) record of how each service is performing over a period of time.

Many tipsters claim impressive track records and in some cases, these results are undoubtedly true. Claims though, are very easy to make and without proper policing and easily understandable analysis it is difficult for the potential customer to subscribe with any real confidence. Besttipping is the only 'Professional' service and is unique in that it offers for free the chance for you to:

  • View results graphically
  • View results by level flat stake (£10, £50 or £100 you decide)
  • View results by points (if the tipster uses this system)
  • View total win value and percentage of winners
  • View results over different periods e.g. 30 days, 90 days, year to date
  • Monitors laying as well as backing services

The importance of long-term subscriptions.

Looking back over the performances of our tipsters since we started collecting data in October 2005, what strikes me most is the incredible consistency shown by the top performers. Not only are the same names who were at the top of our tables in December still at the top, but the amount of profit shown to their clients has increased steadily.

This is not to say though that they will never have negative weeks or even months. In fact they ALL have, and will no doubt have more in the future. The important thing to appreciate when deciding to subscribe to a service is that it has to be a long term investment to be worthwhile. It is true that you may subscribe for a month and be lucky enough to show a huge return, but the consistent and reliable returns are shown over time.

Besttipping is there to identify how tipsters have performed in the past so that you can gauge how they might perform in the future. Having chosen the service you feel offers the best long term value, make a long term commitment and decide on a stake amount which does not overstretch you during the losing periods, while at the same time makes the subscription fee worthwhile.

Best of Luck!!
