The Architect has been struggling to make a profit over the last few months.
In my latest set of results I have to report a further loss of £64.33 or 6.4 points, but…
I do have to admit something.
Due to the recent changes in how Tipster’s Empire send out tips, I have missed out on quite a few winning tips from this service. It is ultimately my fault for not being as on the ball as I could have been, but problems with the tipster’s member’s area not loading and tips changing from being sent via email to text message didn’t help.
Anyway, luck would have it that the service went on a winning spree during the time that I missed recording the tips and I could potentially have recouped most of the loss from the previous months by now, although it could easily have gone the other way.

I was planning on finishing this trial up after this update but in light of my mishap I will keep going for another month to see whether The Architect really is back in form.

Update: 15th March 2018
I tried to stay positive after a bad start to my trial of The Architect, but it’s becoming tough after experiencing another losing month.
I have tracked 78 bets this month and 25 either won or placed, which wasn’t enough to finish with a profit. I finished the month with a loss of 5 points and dded to last month’s totals, that’s an overall loss of 31.7 points at the available prices.
The Betfair SP results were slightly better, almost breaking even with a 0.3 point loss.
|The Architect – Update Two||Advised Prices||Price taken||Betfair SP|
|Profit (£)||(£ 55.30)||(£ 50.45)||(£ 2.77)|
|New Bank||£ 681.56||£ 682.88||£ 660.66|
|% Bank Growth||-31.84%||-31.71%||-33.93%|

I would like to give The Architect another month to redeem himself, after all many of the bets have been at fairly high odds so a couple of wins could make a world of difference.
I will be back with another update next month. In the meantime, click here for more information on The Architect.
Update: 14th February 2018
It’s been a poor month for The Architect and a horrific start to my trial with more than 25% of my bank wiped out already.
It has felt like an uphill battle from the start with several losing bets putting me on the back foot and quite a few near misses with horses placing second.
Ok… so everyone has a losing run now and again when luck goes the wrong way and it’s not like the picks have been left stranded at the back of the field. Perhaps I just started at the wrong time and I need to keep the faith for a while.
However, in total I have lost £266.67 to £10 stakes at the prices available and £336.57 at Betfair SP.
|The Architect – Update One||Advised Prices||Price taken||Betfair SP|
|Profit (£)||(£ 263.15)||(£ 266.67)||(£ 336.57)|
|New Bank||£ 736.86||£ 733.33||£ 663.43|
|% Bank Growth||-26.31%||-26.67%||-33.66%|

It’s not the start that I’d hoped for in this trial but there have been a series of winning bets towards the end of the month, so hopefully things are starting to look up.
I will be back next month with my second update. In the meantime, click here for more information on The Architect.
Introduction: 11th January 2018
Tipsters Empire seems to be more of a quality over quantity platform, currently offering memberships to just three tips services.
I have trialled one of them so far, DG Tips, which produced a notable profit at both the prices taken and BSP odds.
Now I’m curious to find out whether the other services are anywhere near as good, so I have launched a new trial of The Architect – a horse racing tipster who has been a part of the team since August last year.
According to the sales page, The Architect pulled off a 150/1 treble during his proofing to the Tipsters Empire network, but the main reason that made him stand out was his commitment and ability to make a long-term profit.
This certainly looks to be true, with the results published to the website showing a profit of over £3000 to £10 stakes to date.
I received the tips for today last night at around 7pm and I was impressed with the level of detail. Following the basic information such as the race details and advised odds, there’s a full analysis of why the horse has been selected.
The bets are a mix of win and each-way and the staking seems to be simple; mainly 1pt each or 0.5pts each-way.
I’ll be aiming for 200 bets and will report back with my progress in a monthly update. As usual, I will track results for the odds advised by the tipster, the actual price available and Betfair SP.
I’ll be back soon with my first update but in the meantime, click here for more information on The Architect.
