BARRY is no longer on the SP2A Tipster Roster

Barry Nicholls has been proofing with us for several months and will start live tipping from the 16th July 2016.

Barry is a form analyst who focuses his attention on in-form and returning to form Trainers. He relies on analysis from the Racing Press and then applies his own rating to each runner on a given day from in form Trainers who meet his criteria. This ensures that every horse running for a yard that is considered to be "in form" or "returning to form" is carefully analysed for a possible tip.

The system has worked well in proofing, save for one poor month, which led to some fine tuning and Barry with proof to us as SP2A BarryNicholls.

All tips PROOFED to Racing Index www.racing-index.com and all historic results in SP2A archive
