In this High Five Racing Investments review, I’ll be taking a look at this established tipping service. With over 20 years as a serious bettor and making a great income, will this tipster live up to expectations or will you be wasting your time and money?
What is High Five Racing Investments?
High Five Racing Investments has been running on the Betfan platform for 13 months so it’s time I took a look at it. This service first caught my eye last summer. But, I usually like to leave it a full year so a service can have the ups and downs that all services experience. When I first saw it, it looked very good indeed so approaching it again 7 or 8 months later I had some high expectations.
The tipster (though he does remain anonymous) does tell us a lot about how he comes up with his selections. He spends 6-12 hours a day working on his tips. Using a combination of number crunching, (his own bespoke formula) outside and inside sources to come up with the following day’s winners.
I’ve looked at a good few services over the years. I’ve found that (as long as the sources aren’t awful) this combination is behind a lot of the most successful ones.
How does High Five Racing Investments Work?
The bets will arrive in your inbox between 6.30 pm and 7.30 pm to make the most of the early evening prices. Although he goes on to tell us this service is still profitable at SP, it’s clear that there’s more profit to be had by getting these on as soon as they arrive.
You’ll be getting a fair few tips as well. You might think a service called ‘High Five’ might deliver 5 tips a day, but there’s nothing that gimmicky here. The tipster sends out whatever he thinks will win at a good price, whether it’s 1 or 22. The tips will only be win singles, staking only a single point each time.
You won’t be backing too many favourites as most of the odds are over 5. So far, this looks to be a well-considered service with some solid thinking behind the selection of tips.
How long does High Five Racing Investments take to set up?
Before you get any of those tips, you’ll have to sign-up and part with some cash. It’s quite quick and painless (and it’s even quicker if you’re already a Betfan member). But then it’s not a case of sitting back and waiting for your first tips to arrive.
As this service is very much based around getting the right price, you might have to go searching for the advised odds. So, before those first tips arrive you might need to dust off a few bookmakers accounts you haven’t used for a while. It’s best to get it done now so you don’t miss out on the right price because you’re waiting for a password reset email to arrive.
How long does it take to use High Five Racing Investments?
There’s nothing complicated with these tips so provided you can get the price, it’s a case of working through these, one after another. If you have to go searching around for prices though, it’s another story.
You’ll need to make sure you know your way around oddschecker and have as much of this set up on your phone as possible. This won’t actually be any quicker than doing it on your laptop. But, having the apps on your phone means you can get on with these as soon as they arrive. The sooner you can get these on the more chance you have of getting the right price.
This is key to getting the advised odds if you want to make the advised profits. This service is looking like one of the very best so far, but profits are the last and most important piece of the puzzle.
How much can you make with High Five Racing Investments?
Unfortunately, that piece has gone missing. 243pts in profit in 13 months isn’t enough. An average profit of £18pts or £180 at £10/pt isn’t that much at all, especially from that number of bets.
The fact is that most of that profit was made in the first 5 months (when I first saw this). Since then it’s only been bobbing around the break-even point. But, that’s before you take fees into account, and those are pretty hefty.
How much does High Five Racing Investments cost?
At £15 for a week, £45 for 28 days, £126 for three months or £214 for six months, you’d want more than £180 each month. I usually think that between 10% and 20% of profit is a reasonable amount for fees, and this is more than that. Especially when you think that for the last 7 months you wouldn’t have been getting much back at all.
Bobbing along at break-even means there aren’t any major losses and even a couple of losing months in a row won’t break a 100pt bank.
High Five Racing Investments Review Advantages
That’s not what I’d consider an advantage though. Those are that the bets are simple and there’s nothing new to learn here. There are enough bets to keep you interested and you won’t go to many days without a winner. The website, despite having a picture of a Porsche on it, gives you a good feeling that finally, this is a tipster who knows his stuff.
High Five Racing Investments Review Disadvantages
He doesn’t seem to know it quite well enough though. You may have to spend longer than you’d like chasing prices around bookies, for some pretty mediocre profits. The last 7 months have been very poor and you would have made a loss overall after fees.
High Five Racing Investments Review Conclusion and Overall Rating
This is exactly why I usually leave it a year before I take a look at a service. If I’d written this at the beginning of June 2019 when I first saw this, I’d be singing it’s praises and suggesting you jump all over this.
After it’s ups and downs though, I can only suggest you avoid it for now. However, the methodology behind it makes me think that this service might have a bit of a rebirth. So keep an eye on this and if you see results picking up, it might be time to think again.
