A tough month, but Class 1 Racing pass with flying colours

Published: 05/08/2019

Toptipsters newcomer Class 1 Racing recorded a 105.85-point profit in July and comfortably topped the month’s table. TVRacingTips finished second with a 47.56-point haul with Best Value Tipping Service a distant third.

Class 1 Racing overturned a poor start (40-odd points down after week) in spectacular fashion. The month came alive on 15 July when a 61.83-point profit was secured. Nine of that day’s ten selections secured a return with four winners including 10/1 Bossipop at Ripon and 6/1 Ramesses and 11/2 Club Wexford at Ayr. The good work was continued over the next two days as 9 out of 20 advices were successful and the winners continued to come right up to the end of the month. A strike-rate of almost 30%, achieved from 278 selections was a tremendous achievement and there were plenty of tips that came in second or third, earning each-way money into the bargain.

Along with the three already mentioned, notable winners included two 9/1 advices, Excellent Team (Newton Abbot, 29 July) and Battle Of Waterloo (Chelmsford City, 23 July) and True Romance, who scored at 8/1 at Musselburgh, also on 23 July.

With several well-established services struggling, Class 1 Racing’s effort was good enough to send them to the head of the 2019 Toptipsters’ table with 81.57 points. Last month’s leader, LB Tipster drops to second (19.49 points) with last year’s runner-up, Sprint Specialiser third on 6.64 points.

TVRacingTips topsy-turvy campaign continued with a 47.56-point July yield. This was the third strong posting by the service that provides tips for races covered by terrestrial TV. The highlight was a magical day on 20 July when 28/1 Bettys Hope (Newbury) and 9/1 Raising Sand (Ascot) were both advised, resulting in a daily yield of 87 points.

Elsewhere, it was a testing month. Sprint Specialiser began strongly with three winners from their first eight selections, including Queens Gift (9/1, Doncaster, 5 July) and Related (11/1, Thirsk, 3 July), but thereafter winners were elusive. Golden Arch (9/1, Wolverhampton, 9 July) was one of four winning selections for Sandbets, but too many selections ended up just missing out. This was also the case with The Info Line, while Profit Club Official failed to capitalise on the opening day success of 9/1 advice Edgar Allen Poe at Pontefract.
