Victor Value Review

Introduction

Victor Value is a horse racing tipster service that targets long-term profits.

John Burke, the man behind it, has been a popular tipster for a long time, in fact Danny first reviewed his service back in November 2013. Using £100 flat stakes over 12 weeks, Danny made £6,114.25 profit and gave it a big thumbs up. 

Since then, Victor Value has moved to a new stable and I decided to conduct another review to make sure that it's still a service worth following. John claims to have banked £7000 profit to £10 stakes over the last 3 years, so things are going well!

John sends out daily emails with detailed analysis along with a weekly email containing ante-post selections.

I used a 100 point bank for my review and backed every selection with a flat £10 stake.

Results

It was a fairly quiet first week for profit. A nice winner at 6/1 and a few places, but a loss overall. Still very early days.

One placed selection at big odds of 26.00 was the only profit during week 4 of my Victor Value review. Sadly it was not enough to balance the books as I recorded a loss of 9.75 points.

More poor weather and 3 non runners meant only 2 selections out of 8 got underway during week 5 of my review. 

Another small loss of 3 points left me with an overall 32.3 points loss to date.

Week 6 and another loss of 9.67 points despite the 2 winners. I am nearly at the half way point of this review and with an overall 38 points in the red there is a lot to do to turn this one around.

1 winner and 1 place during week 8 landed a profit of 3.8 points profit.

With racing in the UK set to be postponed until May, Victor Value recently announced they will be switching their focus to the Irish market for the time being. It appears there may be fewer selections but if I make a profit like this week I will be more than happy with that!

Ireland has now followed the UK and postponed all racing until further notice.

I will be putting my Victor Value review on hold until the world returns to normal. In the meantime I hope everyone keeps safe and well.
