Uncompromising Early Price Profits enjoy a monster yield

Published: 02/05/2019

Early Price Profits were in uncompromising form in April, racking up a 106.55-point profit. Not only was this the best return by any service this year, but it brought to mind last year’s remarkable efforts which resulted in a runaway success in the overall Toptipsters’ Challenge. Remarkably, that victory was secured despite just two monthly top finishes. In other words, it was consistency that won the day, rather than the feast or famine approach adopted by other adversaries – many of whom have now dropped by the wayside.

By the end of May last year, after five profitable returns, Early Price Profits were more than two hundred points clear of their nearest rivals. Despite several services scoring heavily on occasions, there was no sustained challenge. Even allowing for a lapse in the autumn, the final distance between Early Price Profits and the second-placed service, Sprint Specialiser, was almost two hundred points. After finishing second in 2016 and ‘17, the challenge was finally won.

After a sluggish start to the new year, Early Price Profits began to hit peak form towards the end of March. The momentum continued into April with an 8/1 advice, Bayston Hill (Chelmsford City), ensuring the month began with a profitable day. This was the first of 63 April winners from 261 bets, a 24% strike-rate. Winning selections also included Day Of Roses, successful at 12/1 at Stratford (14 April) and Midnight Malibu, a 9/1 Southwell victor three days later. This was the ninth time in 35 months with Toptipsters that Early Price Profits have registered monthly profits of more than 100-points (a further three months ended with profits in the 90-99-point range).

While Early Price Profits advise up to ten selections per day, Sprint Specialiser are far more circumspect, averaging little more than one selection per day during the winter months. This figure increases somewhat during the summer months when there are more short distance races, but whatever the season, the chances are that a profit will be forthcoming at the end of the month. That has certainly been the case so far in 2019; monthly returns of 8, 40 and 56 points were followed in April by a 46.40-point yield, which has boosted the chances of a second Toptipsters’ Challenge, following success back in 2016.

April’s strike-rate was just 12%. That’s just four winners from 33 selections, but as that quintet included Kyllukey (16/1, Chelmsford City, 11 April), Pennsylvania Dutch (14/1, Thirsk, 13 April) and Mystical Moon (12/1, Wolverhampton, 5 April), there can be no complaints. The overall return pushes Sprint Specialiser’s lead in the 2019 Toptipsters’ Challenge to more than 85 points. Early Price Profits are up to second (65.37-points) with Sandbets third.

For Sandbets, April represented a resumption of winning ways after three months of small loses. The Roger Fell-trained Muqarred was advised at 20/1 prior to his success at Southwell on 3 April. The next day four of Sandbets’ seven selections prevailed while a sequence of six straight winners on 10 and 11 April emphasised the service’s well-being. The overall strike-rate was a fraction above 25%.

So, April was a month for the old-established services, but new talent is always emerging. The latest addition to the Toptipsters’ roster is LB Tipster, who we wish well in the forthcoming months.
