I'm sure I have seen his name on the forum before.  I received a letter from him yesterday.  Does anyone know about him. 
I've seen his name around for quite a while but did'nt want to get involved.  Thanks a lot.

Top rated,the horse with the highest figure.  "SIMPLES"  Silly

Colin Davey's Private Racing Syndicate - Sovereign Group

Previous | Next

Colin Davey is an ex bookmaker who offers a tipster service for around £25 a week plus a share of your winnings.

Now as I'm sure you have worked out by now I'm not a fan of tipster services in general, with one or two very rare exceptions.  Unfortunately Colin Davey confirms to my stereotype of tipsters.

Basically he is on a winner no matter what, his tips can be absolute garbage and you still end up paying for the "service".

After doing some digging online I've found lots of unhappy clients with tales of long running losing streaks or no tips at all.  In fact that gives me an idea for a new tipster service, send me £10 a week and I guarantee you will never lose any money on my tips... I'll never send you any.  Sounds silly but if some of the posts online are to be believed you can go a week without a tip and still pay £25 for the privilege.

Give this one a miss, save yourself £25 a week and take the love of your life out for a meal instead...  you will get more return from that.

Until next time, be happy.

The Colin Davey Method
Category     > Horse Racing Systems

Colin Davey advises that he has "found a system that can find just 2 or 3 bets per week with nearly every one winning and prices up to 6/1".

Colin states, “You may know from the TV and Newspapers that I am involved in horse racing and have spent the last 22 years trying to find a horse racing selection method that could make people like yourself a regular income”.
Colin began profiling bets over the last seven years, looking for a pattern between horses that had won and horses that had been beaten. Whilst undertaking this profile, Colin saw something in one of the winners that really stood out. He states, “it actually made me stay up until 3am in the morning checking results from back copies of the Racing Post.

I was so excited I couldn’t go to bed until I had checked at least 5 years of results, because I knew immediately that I had finally found something that I, and every other person in the world, had been looking for. An easy way to make loads of money, with no hard work and from the comfort of your own home.
In fact, I had found a system that could find just 2 or 3 bets per week with nearly every one winning and prices up to 6/1.
I always knew there was a real winning system out there because just after the second world war, a Dutchman called Char Van Der Wheil, made millions betting on horses. This guy is a legend in the horse racing world – please check him out on the internet.

Also, while I was Managing Director of Sovereign Bookmakers, a Mr Bradshaw, who was a customer of ours, took us and other bookmakers for hundreds of thousands. I spent time profiling their bets and found they all matched this method perfectly.

This is what kept me going for so long, because I knew one day that the ship would come in and I would find the ultimate winning system. Now I know that all my 22 years of burning the midnight oil has finally paid off. In just a few weeks last Summer I netted over £41,000 from Betfair and Ladbrokes alone (a copy of the cheques are shown in the circular). I know you can do the same if you follow my method over the next few weeks”.

Colin advises that he is now in a position to make you a lot of money and all you have to do is follow his method each day to make several hundred pounds a week.  Laugh

I believe I knew him many years ago when he was a tax adviser!

Avoid systems like this and choose your own bets/lays far more rewarding

The winning system Colin discovered obviously was to sell rubbish tips to mug punters.

It is possible to make a healthy  living from Colin Davey's selections

Just lay anything he tips Cool
Report ima_mazed66 September 23, 2011 3:04 PM BST
I remember he had one called Factor 4 which bar a few other provisos was to basically back any winner running again within 4 days and whislt there's some logic to that, it's a logic that most average punters would already be aware of without having to pay and it undoubtably throws up winners but not enough to be profitable I wouldn't have thought in the long term.

As has been mentioned though, might well be worth considering laying them.

Here's a few of his systems anyway:

1 The horse must be rated 78 or above in the Daily Mail
2 It must have won, or been placed 2nd or 3rd last time out
3 It must be running within 4 days of its last run.
4 It must be favourite.


And if you are doing that consistently, you will end the season well ahead. There is no reason why starting with a £1000 bank and betting 10% on each selection with your winnings rolled forward-you cannot make £20000 to £50000 per annum as a TAX FREE second income from your betting activity.

Factor 4 Gold
same as above but win only last time out


1) Horse must have been a beaten Fav last time out
2) SP must be no bigger than 11/1
3) Horse must be trained by one of the following Trainers:

B J Meehan
P J Makin
K R Burke
B Ellison
J L Dunlop
R A Fahey
P W D’Arcy
P W Harris
G Wragg
B W Hills
M A Jarvis
E J Alston
P W Hiatt

As you can probably tell from the named trainers, it's a little outdated now.

Thinking that the name was that of a former trainer of sprinters I checked on google and found,not the person I was looking for but "Bad Bets ;Frauds And Scams".

Absolute charlatan. Used to need a couple of heavies to keep him from getting done over.
I remember his advertising brochure. It was riddled with mistakes such as the horses he had apparently tipped not even running on the dates specified. Also he claimed to have a system that identified blots on the handicap but quite a few of his "winners" weren't in handicaps.
A self-aggrandising dodgepot.
