The Speculator

Placespotter has been a mainstay for SP2A Members since inception of the service. However since 2019 it has been the home of Ian in respect of UK selections using the "Placespotter criteria" and Sean in respect of IRISH selections using the same methodology. To better distinguish between the pair we will now retain SEAN as PLACESPOTTER focussing on IRISH Racing and Irish Trained horses running in the UK. IAN will advise and proof Tips as "The Speculator" from Monday 7th March 2022 (there will be no retrospective amending of results prior to 07/03/2022 for transparency)

On the right hand side of the screen is the analysis for the tipster: The Speculator, you can view the data of the last 20 Tips, All Tips for the current year, 2022, and their historical data, all their tips since starting at SP2A. The final tap is a graphical representation of their tips by course. The top pie chart, shows the 10 courses that have given The Speculator, their best return’s (this is a total of the PROFIT on that course) the second Pie Chart give there least profitable course’s, again this is total profit of all tips given for that course. **Holding you mouse over each segment, will reveal the number of tips given for that course, along with the average return.**
