Worcester still top for PJA National Hunt
PJA National Hunt’s passion for Worcester, as highlighted last month, continues unabated. Recent winning advices at Pitchcroft included Fade To Grey (6/1, 26 July) and Red Not Blue (11/2, 5 August). These successes helped to propel PJA National Hunt to the top of the Besttipping table for the five-week period ending on 28 August. Their return for the period was a mighty 40.1 points, the second highest monthly figure in 2011, after PJA Flat’s 52.2point haul in June.
Newton Abbot also proved lucrative for PJA National Hunt with Bathwick Man (5/1, 1 August) and Mibleu (11/1, 9 August) both landing the spoils. Los Nadis (15/2, Perth, 20 August) and Lucky Lukey (6/1, Hereford, 22 August) helped to sustain the fine run through to the end of August, while a sequence of placed selections in each-way bets also contributed to the overall tally.
Hayley Turner’s victory aboard the Roger Charlton-trained filly Primevere at Salisbury on 10 August heralded the start of a blistering run by Gorrie UK. That 9/1 winning advice was followed by nine winners during a golden four-day period between 11 and 14 August (strike-rate 56.25%).
Other tasty treats from Gorrie this month included Labarinto, a 5/1 winning selection at Glorious Goodwood on 28 July, Dungannon (5/1, Ascot, 6 August) and Silken Thomas (9/2, Lingfield, 25 August). Overall, Gorrie UK ended the review period with an 11.9 point profit to recorded stakes (41.4 points to level stakes).
Steve Jones Daily Bargain made a sensational start to August. The 8/1 Ripon victor Fossgate was a confident selection on the opening day of the month. Impressive though this was, better was to follow the next day, thanks to Daaweitza - a 20/1 winning strike at Southwell. Jones was also on the mark with Last Bid (7/2, York, 23 July), Blazing Tempo (5/1, Galway 27 July) and Side Glance (7/2, Salisbury, 11 August).
A 50% strike-rate on win-only bets marked another profitable month for Personal Info. Winners included the David Lanigan-trained colt Planetoid, a 5/2 advice prior to his All Weather victory at Kempton on 3 August. The advantage of identifying the best guaranteed price (a regular feature of Personal Info’s service) was apparent in this case as the three-year-old came in for strong late support, and was sent off the even money favourite.
After dominating our table for the last four months, PJA Flat experienced a quieter spell this time around. Nevertheless, a 5.7 point profit wasn’t to be sniffed at.
As usual, there were many juicy winners with 12/1 Rockfella (12 August, Newbury) and Pittodrie Star, a 10/1 winner at Haydock on 4 August standing out. There were also half a dozen winners in the 13/2 to 9/1 price range.
The third PJA service, PJA All Weather, also posted a profit this month (4.4 points) with the highlight being the 12/1 victory of Catchanova at Kempton on 15 August.
The Ostler’s Racing Club hit the bookies with Oneladyowner, a 14/1 Newbury selection on 12 August, while Gamblers Reunited found two 4/1 winners, Class Is Class (6 August, Haydock) and York Glory (20 August, York).
We’re two thirds of the way through 2011 and PJA Flat head the overall table for the year with a 162.1 point profit. Stablemate PJA All Weather are second with 86.5 points with Ostler third on 40.4 points.

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!!
