Fantastic Eights Review

Updated: 22nd September 2018

Fantastic Eights is based on the Betfan tipster platform and has been verified by The Tipster League since January 2018. The name gives a heavy hint as to the strategy and thinking behind this system. It is based around the percentages when betting in small fields of eight runners or less. Most of the tips come in races with five, six or seven runners.

The man behind the service calls himself Frankie and his profile page mentions years of struggling with various tipsters and systems before finally landing on a profitable formula. The page also carries a screenshot which shows Fantastic Eights showing a massive 3,000 points profit between March 2015 and February 2017.

Fantastic Eights averages 3 bets per day at average odds of 9.08/1. They made an impressive start in The Tipster League with a profit in each of the first four months. The best of them was February which yielded a profit of 144 points and a Return on Investment of almost 50%. The service has been a little bit “up and down” since then with a similar profit in July sandwiched between heavy losses in June and August.

Fantastic Eights are currently showing a profit of £227.66 at a monthly average of £25.30. The strike rate for Fantastic Eights is 18.8% with a Return on Investment of 4.13%. One of their biggest odds winners since joining The Tipster League was Reedanjas at 16-1 at Chelmsford City in January.

Gay Kelleway trains the filly who had finished last on her previous start at Kempton. She was fitted with a visor at Chelmsford and was able to turn the form around with Cool Breeze to the tune of 12 lengths. Her SP return was 10-1, illustrating the value in taking the early prices. However, it can occasionally go the other way. Turban (tipped by Fantastic Eights at 11-1) won at 20-1 in a six-runner race at Fontwell Park at the end of August. If you can secure an account with Best Odds Guaranteed, so much the better!

There are no obvious trends in the statistics for results by course for Fantastic Eights. Frankie’s method means that his options are dictated by the number of races with small fields. This does mean that quite a high percentage of his races are in chases and they have so far proved most profitable. In early September, his statistics for 2018 showed a profit of nearly 230 points in National Hunt compared to a loss of 160 points in all flat races. This is quite remarkable, given that our statistics do not include a full National Hunt season.

Frankie obviously does not want to give away too many secrets but his system usually involves opposing the favourite. Only a small percentage of his selections are short prices. There are no fancy staking plans involved and the objective is a level stakes profit for his subscribers. A monthly membership to Fantastic Eights costs £44 or you can save one months’ fees by signing up at the quarterly rate of £88.
