10th Shrewd Tips - 1057 tips, 10.8% ROI

Profit: £2283.34 to £20 average stakes

There's no disgrace in bringing up the rear of this list of top performers, and Shrewd Tips has enjoyed an excellent first half of the year despite kicking off with a slight monthly drawdown in January. Since then, his ability to extract race winner value at eachway prices (average advised odds nudging 8/1) has kept profits trending in the right direction, resulting in that tidy 10.8% yield over the first six months of 2021.

9th OnTheNose - 166 tips, 13.6% ROI

Profit: £451.78 to £20 average stake

After topping 2020's Best Horse Racing Tipster rankings, OnTheNose wasted no time bringing that form into 2021, enjoying five straight profitable months, culminating in May's 54% yield. If he had not suffered a slight dip in form in June, OnTheNose might well have been challenging for top spot, but the good news is that he is right back on track in July with seven winners from his first 17 selections for a mammoth 240% ROI so far. Achieving that consistency while adhering strictly to just one "on-the-nose" selection a day demonstrates a proven betting model built around a real eye for value.

8th Value Ratings - 397 tips, 17.7% ROI

Profit: £1402.89 to £20 average stakes

Another tipster whose betting model is designed to identify the best value away from the top of the betting market is Value Ratings, who overcame a sticky start to 2021 by producing double-digit yields in each of the next five months. His 397 selections produced 76 winners, and that 19% win rate at average odds of nearly 7/1 make a simple mathematical equation that resulted in that tasty 17.7% ROI.

7th Clyde Shelton Turf Wars - 417 tips, 19.7% ROI

Profit: £3318.13 to £20 average stake

A successful first half of 2021 for Clyde Shelton Turf Wars has been merely a continuation of a great run of form that began in the middle of last year. The first five months of the year all earned double-digit returns on investment, and although his high-odds strategy brings only a 7% win rate, its the eachway places that boosted that success rate up to 25%, and kept the profits coming in to the tune of over over £3K to level £20 stakes.

6th WannaWin BM - 417 tips, 25.4% ROI

Profit: £2116.27 to £20 average stake

Although the last three months could not quite match the first three months of 2021 for WannaWin BM, his overall returns still earn him a top six spot over the first half of the year. He earned top four spots in each of the first three of 2021's monthly rankings and this came after he topped the same list in December with a mammoth 114% yield and finished fifth in our overall rankings for 2020. All of WannaWin's race-winner selections are published in the same convenient mid-morning window to offer real-time, achievable odds, and he provides a service of true professional reliability and consistency that we never tire of recommending. 

5th AG Tips - 473 tips, 26.6% ROI

Profit: £2513.24 to £20 average stake

Only a relatively poor start to the year prevented AG Tips from appearing in our top ten rankings for the first quarter of 2021, but such has been his form over the last five months that he has surged into the top five of our half-yearly list. His 473 selections landed a decent 62 winners, but it is his eye for eachway value that sets his service apart, and with a further 150+ eachway places in the bag, his success rate climbed to 45%, boosting his half-yearly ROI to 26.6%.

4th The Banker - 389 tips, 30.9% ROI

Profit: £2403.54 to £20 average stake

The Banker has been a model of consistency throughout the first half of 2021, backing up his podium spot in our first quarterly report to keep hold of fourth place for the 6-month period. Despite kicking off 2021 with a drawdown month in January, he has proved that patience and discipline can be key to achieving long-term growth against short-term fluctuations. June's 54% yield earned him runner-up spot in our monthly Best Tipster rankings, and his output of around fifteen selections per week ensures an easily manageable service.

3rd BoomBoom - 471 tips, 31.7% ROI

Profit: £2986.55 to £20 average stake

Continuing where he left off in 2020 (when he accrued 158% ROI in November and 53% in December), BoomBoom has carried that form seamlessly into the first half of 2021 and is the only service in our top ten to have ended each of the first six months with a larger bankroll than it began them. An impressive 23% win rate at average advised odds of 8/1+ have combined to produce that 31% yield, which converts to over £1800 in clear profits to level £20 stakes. Boom indeed!!

2nd CD Systems Daily Bargain - 169 tips, 39.8% ROI

Profit: £1346.16 to £20 average stake

Proving the old adage that quantity is no match for quality, CD Systems Daily Bargain offers the simplest of services - one tip per day, always recommending an on-the-nose winner and always published the night before racing to exploit any enhanced early market value. While his 149% ROI in February and his 209% ROI in May represent profit spikes rather than the norm, they do illustrate that this service can be as effective as it is simple, as indeed does his overall 40% yield through the first half of 2021, converting to over £1300 in clear profit.

1st Underdog Racing Tips - 463 tips, 44.7% ROI

Profit: £4135.14 to £20 average stake

Our first half-yearly winner is Underdog Racing Tips, whose overall 44% yield in the first half of 2021 has been built on five profitable months out of six, boosted by a remarkable run of results that brought a 171% ROI in March, including winners at 50/1 (twice!!), 33/1, 28/1, 25/1, 22/1, 20/1 (x3), and 16/1. That level of success is not easy to sustain, of course, but the fact that URT has enjoyed further success in the last three months suggests a service capable of long-term growth and punctuated by massive short-term spikes. Although such a high-odds betting strategy requires patience, faith and discipline to survive the inevitable lean spells between those juicy winners, the fact that many of his selections are advised at higher odds than their eventual SP illustrates a remarkable eye for eachway value. 

We're sure you can't deny that's a tasty top ten of high-quality services for you to consider, and between them they yielded well over £22k in half-yearly gains to level £20 stakes.

So, well done again to Underdog Racing Tips for heading our rankings, and we hope there's enough in the above list to allow you to make an informed decision when considering tipsters who have shown they are capable of performing profitably over an extended period.
