Hi guys, if you have found your way here you probably already know for years now I have had a reputation for being helpful, ethical, genuine, professional, and never talking BS. So, please believe I am being completely honest when I say:
“If you are not yet supporting me on Patreon you are missing out on a significant amount of additional profit.”
As a Patron you now get early access to all my tips before they go on Twitter meaning you always get on at early “value” odds while my Placepot bets on Patreon are consistently throwing up lots of winners with some at decent prices including including Swayze (12/1) at Yarmouth on the 14th of July, It Must Be Faith (25/1) at Catterick on the 10th of May, and Kartvelian (10/1) on the 18th of May. Places in this Level are limited on Patreon with not many remaining so you should sign up now before they’re all gone.
I have also recently starting giving Patrons supporting me at the Kauto Star Tier (Level 4) access to additional bets which I place frequently on outsiders that I consider over-priced. These are horses I think could go well at a price but they don’t stand out enough to put them out as tips. Plenty of these win or place for me and show me a long-term profit. Tangled won for us at 22/1, for example, on the 17th of May. This only went out on Patreon. Another excellent Patreon exclusive winner was Lockdown at 14/1 on the 30th of June.
The “offering” on Patreon is constantly being improved and a recent addition is giving Patrons in-depth analysis on around 10 races per week where I think the Favourite is weak. Punters are using this to “lay” the Favourite and I also suggest which horses might go well in the race at an each way price. My strike rate for getting Favourites beat is 100% as I write this on the 23rd of June while the each way selections given are showing a good profit with Captain Ivan (given at 10/1) winning today.
I understand your reluctance to donate monthly to access the information that will make you this “additional profit” but the feedback from the 100+ people already supporting me on Patreon to date has been very positive. Plus, it is a bit of a no-brainer because, while I can’t guarantee any one horse is going to win, I 100% GUARANTEE if you sign up to Patreon for a month and aren’t completely happy you are making money or with the service I am providing I will send you a “FULL 100% NO QUIBBLE REFUND“.
I want to reassure you I am not raising funds for personal profit but rather because I am trying to do something good, ethical, and different to help everyday punters like yourself. To develop the website I need to raise funds to pay for staff wages, the costs associated with doing business, and (most importantly for you) to pay more tipsters with a similar profitable track record to me. Tipping myself since 2012, I know most of the best tipsters in the industry and the plan is to start inviting some of them to “Guest Tip” on ShrewPunters.com to provide you guys with even more winning tips. It is my opinion that following a “portfolio” of profitable tipsters is the best way for busy people like you to make a long-term profit from horse racing.
For further information please read on or if I have persuaded you supporting what I am trying to do on Patreon is a WIN-WIN then please sign up now.
Simply put, I have set up a Patreon page because I have been chronically ill with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis since 2012 and my health is gradually deteriorating year on year. I am 52 now with an ailment which on average takes 20 years off your life so I have seriously started to think about my own mortality and leaving some kind of legacy. I would love that legacy to be this website developed and enhanced to give you many more of the tools and resources I use to help choose my winning selections. I have come to realise recently my health is at the stage where I need help to do this so I would like to, with the assistance of you my most loyal supporters, try to raise the funds to put a small team of people in place going forward as this will accelerate the process of me achieving my not too lofty goals and ambitions.
Patreon has also been set up by popular demand as countless punters and genuinely decent human beings, who have profited from my tips, have messaged me over the years asking how they could donate part of their winnings to me. Well now you can guys and I feel so fortunate to have the backing of kind-hearted, generous, people like you who are interested in what I do and hold me in high enough regard to contribute and – Become a Patron!
So, what is in it for you? Well, you will get early access to all my tips ensuring you get on before the odds shorten, I will be writing articles sharing with you insights on the various techniques and methods I use to pick winners and the process I follow daily to select my tips including all the work that goes on behind the scenes. There are Placepots at least twice weekly with in-depth analysis of each of the 6 races where I’m happy to report we are hitting plenty of winners.
I will be sharing the horses in my tracker with you which includes detailed notes on each runner, we will be having regular Q&A’s coming up to major Festivals, I will be recommending horses I think are worth an Ante Post punt, and I would eventually love to even own a racehorse (or two) with you. Also, I hope, by having admin staff and a website developer in place this will free up enough time to allow me to give you more tips on a regular basis.
The picture below summarises what I’m trying to achieve and the rest of the page goes in to more detail explaining what Patreon is for, how it all works, and bigger projects I’d like to take on so if you love what I do and want to help then please read on…
I have some really big plans and I am asking my most loyal supporters to be a part of it all. For a very quick overview of how Patreon works they’ve got a minute odd long video HERE to explain, which I highly recommend you take the time to watch, but basically if you love my work this gives you the opportunity to become a supporter gifting me as little as £3.20 per month (or more, if you choose). Your generous financial backing then allows me to become more business oriented, helps me to grow, and pay my general costs-of-doing-business like staff wages, website development costs, a marketing budget, making a living (LMAO), etc, and importantly allows me to remain independent as the few alternative lucrative fundraising methods available as a betting analyst are to go private and start a paid subscription service or introduce a bookie affiliate business model. However, as many of you already know from Twitter, I have made a conscious moral and ethical decision not to go down either of these routes as I want all my tips to always remain FREE! So, in a reluctant but bold move (because I’ve always been one of those people who never asks anyone for help), I have decided to rely on your kindness by letting you gauge what value my work is worth to you personally then ask you to please support me to that extent monthly.
In March 2020, I set up my website ShrewdPunters.com with my aim being to provide you with the tips, knowledge, strategies, tools, & resources to help improve the way you select your own horses to bet on while hopefully causing some of you to rethink your whole approach to betting thereby making you an even more profitable punter than you are already. However, websites cost money and some of the tools and resources I’d like to develop for you guys cost a fortune. For example, I’d like to develop an algorithm based rating system which automatically assesses the winning chances of each horse in every UK race and awards them a numerical rating based on around 140 factors and variables I consider, and questions I ask myself, when assessing a race before finalising my selections. I have been told by various “coders” this can be done but would cost tens of thousands of pounds to develop and maintain. I asked you guys on Twitter back in November 2020 if you would like this tool and the answer was an emphatic “yes please” as you can see below.
Another massive project on my wish list is to write a book detailing the methods I have used to successfully pick winners over the years. I know from the hundreds of messages and comments I’ve received from you this would be most welcome and highly desirable.
I have been chronically ill with MECFS & Fibromyalgia since 2012 and my health is very gradually deteriorating so these huge “wish list” undertakings may regrettably never come to fruition as they are obviously dependent on my ongoing health problems and how much financial support I receive but, in any case, any help I get should result in you getting more tips from me and I have already written several articles which I will be publishing over the coming weeks and months. My hope is you will enjoy them, find them interesting and insightful, and they will help you with your future betting choices. If you head over to my Patreon page you can read the first article I have published.
You probably won’t know I do very well with Placepots. These are something I can’t release on Twitter because if we get one up, and thousands of you have done a Placepot on the same horses, the returns are going to be seriously diminished. However, on here, I can limit the number of punters who can see them which alleviates the poor profits issue. I plan to post as many as 1-3 per week on here and with 6 horses in each Placepot (while the aren’t tips they are obviously runners that I think are at least going to get placed) many can also be backed by you as each way singles or just to place.
At a much more basic level, any help I could get would be of enormous benefit to me. For example, many time consuming tasks I currently perform manually could be automated for a price or admin staff and hiring website development “techys” would leave me more free time to do what I love which is studying the form and searching for that next big-priced winner.
P.S. Donations are completely voluntary guys so please don’t feel obliged in any way to contribute. I do what I do because I absolutely love it and don’t expect anything in return for the selections I provide or the one on one answers and help I give people so only participate if you believe in what I’m trying to do on Twitter, and at ShrewdPunters.com, and really want to help me achieve that.
If you love what I am trying to do here then please help…
