Ryan Weston

Hi, I’m Ryan, a 34 year old family man who lives Eastbourne, in the South East of England, with my wife and daughter. As a kid, my old man used to put each way doubles on for me and when I was about 8 years old I remember getting a 14/1 x 33/1 double up, and thus a monster was created. I’m very much a National Hunt tipster, specialising in low grade handicaps (Class 4 & 5), where my favourite racing memory has to be Denman winning his second Hennessy (The greatest winning performance in a handicap for me), but I loved that whole era when Nicholls golden 4 (Kauto Star/Big Bucks/Master Minded) was around. I’ve always been sporty and finished my degree in Sports Science back in 2009, which helped me analyse performance among other things. I went straight in to betting full time, and haven't looked back since, honing my craft in the early years on the Betfair forum. I am very much a form book man as opposed to being stats focused, but I still take them in to account when assessing a race. I believe my biggest strength is in the early markets, and understanding what price a horse should be in comparison to the bookie price. This, in my opinion, is a fundamental skill in making long-term profit. There are many facets to being profitable in the long term, but there is no substitute for watching race replays, which any aspiring punter needs to do, and I am no different. I joined OLBG in 2017 where I have been consistently profitable and I’m currently lying second on their Annual LSP (Level Stakes Profit) Table with a 240 point LSP to a £1 stake and my ROI (Return On Investment) isn't too shabby, having achieved 75.43% in the past year.
