Unstoppable Under The Radar extend 2017 lead
May was another bumper month for followers of Toptipsters. Of the fifteen services which provided tips during the month, three posted profits of more than a hundred points, with a further five registering gains of between 25 and 54 points.
Top of the May table was Under the Radar with a magnificent 271.77-point yield. Each Way Accas claimed second spot with 140.75 points with SG Racing third on 110.54. Sprint Specialiser (54 points), Early Price Profits (33.43 points) and Sandbets (28.25) came next, followed by debutant Tony Mc Racing (25.25 points) and Foresight (24.18 points).
Under The Radar’s six-month tenure with Toptipsters began with a 127.40-point profit last December, followed immediately by a huge 292.88-point January yield. This sent Under The Radar to the top of the 2017 rankings, where they remain, having earned 487.22 points so far in 2017.
A successful modus operandi dedicated to seeking value bets means that Under The Radar find more than their fair share of big-priced winners. May’s haul, for example included 33/1 Rainbow Haze (Worcester, 11 May), 25/1 Silent Man (Uttoxeter, 6 May), 22/1 Frozen Angel (Ascot, 3 May) and two 20/1 York strikes, Lord Yeats (19 May) and Tasleet (17 May). This way of operating also means that the perils of long losing sequences – the bane of all tipsters’ lives – are neutralised. Last month, for instance, a mid-term 36-race run of losers was barely noticed.
Another service that often throws caution to the wind, Each Way Accas, enjoyed their best monthly return since last October. After a steady start, the Chester success of 20/1 advice Montaly (10 May) heralded fireworks. Two days later, Sound Advice lived up to his name, winning at 12/1 on the final day of the Chester May Meeting. Four winners from eight selections on 13 May included the Lingfield Derby Trial winner, Best Solution, a 12/1 advice, while subsequent winners included 15/1 Here Comes When (York, 18 May) and 12/1 Talent Scout (Beverley, 31 May).
SG Racing’s best return since last October’s 145-point haul was the result of a sustained assault that saw 15 winning selections and a further 17 advices finishing second or third. Successes included 12/1 Here Comes When (York, 18 May), 11/1 Indian Dandy (Yarmouth, 2 May) and 8/1 Sir Pass I Am (Chepstow, 16 May).
A fourth profitable month out of five this year for Sprint Specialiser was secured after a slow start. But the victories of 16/1 advice Khelman (Doncaster) and 10/1 Kickboxer (Thirsk) on 20 May transformed matters.
Early Price Profits retain second position in the 2017 table thanks to another solid performance. In other circumstances, a 33-point profit would be making headlines, but in these times of plenty it almost slips through the net. Nevertheless, a ninth monthly profit out of twelve deserves praise.
Sandbets followed last month’s 122-point yield with a 28.25-point May profit, which takes this all-weather specialist up to fourth in the 2017 rankings.
Finally, this time, a word of welcome for two new services, Tony Mc Racing and Mean Wisdom. The former made an impressive debut with 33/1 Worcester winner Rainbow Haze (11 May) standing out. June Dog, a winning 20/1 Leicester advice (30 May) ensured that Mean Machine’s first month with Toptipsters would turn out to be a profitable one.
