The Secret Handicapper is a horse racing tipster service managed by Betfan that has been around since May 2017. Each day members are sent horse racing tips, primarily on handicap races.
The tipster takes a meticulous approach by diving into the data analysis and making selections based on ratings for the horses.
The service is focused on UK racing.
80% of the bets are on handicap races hence the name of the service.
The reason behind choosing to focus on handicap races is sound – the belief that handicaps can be such a puzzle that there is huge scope for horses to be incorrectly priced up early on in the day.
Flats, jumps and all-weather are all covered but the jumps are the focus area.
No specific starting bank is recommended on the sales page.
They do mention however, that you will get advice on starting bank and staking plans when you signup.
It varies but generally you can expect to receive at least 10 selections each day. Quieter on a Sunday.
As a member of the service you gain access to a private members area where you can view the daily tips.
You will also be sent the selections via email between 8am and 9.30am.
You can check out the all time track record on this page.
Let’s start out with the positives…
It’s a well managed service and that a full track record is available.
Also, results so far are promising and show good returns.
However, there are a few drawbacks…
The main one being the number of selections.
10 plus selections in a day isn’t for everyone (us included!) If you’re betting at £20 stakes that’s £200 plus every day.
Also, it’s not been around for as long as some of our other favoured services. Of course maybe it will, but only time will tell!
With all that said, we are not currently monitoring The Secret Handicapper service so cannot confidently endorse it.
