The Bookies Enemy Review

bookiesenemyreview Welcome to our Bookies Enemy review, a horse racing tipster service run by Gary Poole, who looks to have been tipping horses for some time now, and certainly has some loyal followers. We will be recording every result that he has over the next 90 days, and see whether he can make us a good return.

Selections are sent by email each evening from around 7pm Monday to Sunday, and can also be accessed via the members section. The Bookies Enemy review will be recorded at advised stakes and prices, as well as to £10 level stakes.

From first inspection I notice the following key points from The Bookies Enemy:

  • 100 points betting bank advised
  • Bets are advised to be backed to win or each way
  • An average monthly profit of just over £400 is claimed to advised £10 stakes
  • Average winning odds look to be around the 12/1 mark
  • Strike rate at around 20%, which is excellent for the price of horses advised

Month 1 Summary

Well, we've come to the end of our first month for The Bookies Enemy review, and I have to say I'm very happy with the way things are going for this service. Gary generally provides selections to win or back each way, with the occasional double, treble or reverse double if he feels particularly confident about his picks.

The strike rate for the month doesn't look healthy at just 9% returning some sort of return, but the profit certainly paints a different picture. Gary opts for generally higher priced horses, at an average of 12/1 for the first month of testing, but it certainly pays off as a 50/1 winner proves (was much higher on Betfair I noticed.)

When comparing our standard £10 per bet, £20 if an each way bet I don't see much difference in profit when using the advised stakes that Gary advises to use. So either way is suitable for this service.

I will be very interested to see how the next two months of testing The Bookies Enemy goes, as I have a feeling it's going to be good. Gary has been around for a fair few years, and is respected by many professionals in the field, so watch this space.

Profit/Loss to £10 Level Stakes +£255.00
Number of bets 65
Number of wins 6
Strike Rate 9.2%
Return On Investment 35.31%

Month 2 Summary

We've now reached the end of our second month of testing The Bookies Enemy review, and results have been very positive. Gary prefers to go pick value selections when he thinks everything is just right, and this has certainly paid well the last month. Level stakes compared to advised stakes has faired better with regards to how much profit was made, and the strike rate has increased along with our total return on investment.

Most selections have been win only or each way picks and the occasional reverse forecast. This is certainly a service that I am enjoying reviewing, and would be more than willing to pay for with such excellent information.

With selections being sent the evening before racing this is a attractive service for people who work 9-5 in the week. I'm looking forward to seeing how the final month of The Bookies Enemy review plays out now we are fully into the flat season.

Profit/Loss to £10 Level Stakes +£87.20
Number of bets 74
Number of wins 14
Strike Rate 18.9
Return On Investment 10.5%

Month 3 Summary

This third and final month of The Bookies Enemy review continued in the same way that it has in the previous two months. Which is a lower strike rate than we'd liked, but nonetheless there was profit seen yet again.

The service provides selections in good time, and odds have been always available when we have checked. You will need a suitably sized betting bank to be able to see out the losing runs, but overall this is a professional service that I liked the look of.

On the results spreadsheet I recorded results to straight level £10 stakes, £10 for the win and £20 for all each way bets (£10 the win, £10 for the place.) This is what the statistics have been based around for the review. If you take a look to the advised stakes you will see that the profit made is higher, so it certainly looks like Gary Poole knows how to stake too.

Over the course of the trial a total profit of £828.60 was seen using the tipsters advised stakes. The highest stake size was a two point win, so £20 rather than a £10 level stake. So this may certainly prove to be the way to go rather than to stake to £10 level stakes.

Profit/Loss to £10 Level Stakes +£131.70
Number of bets 86
Number of wins 13
Strike Rate 15.1%
Return On Investment 12.91%

The Bookies Enemy Conclusion

After our three month review of The Bookies Enemy I am happy to say that I recommend anyone to try out this service. Set yourself up with a betting bank of at least one hundred points, and follow Gary's staking advise and you won't go far wrong. I'd have to say I would rate this tipster a four out of five.
