Betting Guide

Staking Plan:
A Staking Plan is a way of structuring the stakes on each bet to minimise risk and maximise profit. We strongly recommend that you follow the advised staking plan as putting randomly sized bets on is a sure way to come unstuck.


Our recommended bets will be from 0.5 point to 10 points (maximum). You should decide what level you will be betting at, for example this may be £1, £10 or £50 per point. You should then set aside a betting bank equivalent to 200 points.

An example of a typical bet would be 2pts win on horse X, if you were betting to £10 per point then you would place £20 on this selection.

Posting Times:
Advised bets will usually be posted on the website by midday on Saturday.


Gold Subscribers will receive bets by SMS before they are posted to the website. Bronze Subscribers can access bets by logging in to the website, however not all advice will be available to Bronze Subscribers, there will be bets that are given exclusively to Gold Subscribers. Additional horse racing or sports antepost bets are sent to exclusively to Gold Subscribers at varying times of the year, depending on the sporting calendar. 

Value betting:
Consistent profit through value betting - please don’t expect 100% of our selections to win, we profit by tipping value bets - where we believe the odds available do not accurately reflect the chances of a given horse, team or individual. There will be losing selections along the way but our returns will always outweigh stakes in the long term. If you can't cope with backing the occasional string of losing bets then our service is not for you!

Full Results Service:
All of our tips are posted in 'Todays Tips' along with a historical record of past performance, month by month in the 'Our Profits' section of the website. There are no unsubstantiated claims of winners on this site! You can be sure that the results displayed on site are an accurate reflection of our service. 

The old enemy now offer a vast array of prices on many different markets. Our tipsters profit by researching every market and then selecting value bets at attainable prices. One of the keys to successful betting is always betting at the best available odds - if you choose to ignore this golden rule then you may as well stick to backing cartoon dogs down your local bookie!

In order to capitalise on our selections you will need accounts at all of the bookmakers listed on our free bets page.

Internet betting could not be easier and all of the bookmakers listed are easy to use and offer a wide variety of payment methods.
