Feedback From Customers

I really look forward to receiving the daily tips and reading the emails by their various contributors. I joined for the tips (never used a tipping site before) and of course they don’t all win, but I am well in profit, so much so that I decided to buy shares in a couple of horses as well. It’s also great to get the feedback from trainers and jockeys, not just when everything went right but also when things don’t. I intend on being a member for many years to come.

The new website is clear and easy to navigate. Full profit loss information is published so you know what your subscribing to. I will be swapping monthly for annual membership to change great value to outstanding value.

I was skeptic at first, but I cannot fault (the IRCs) offers. I’m on the £199 membership and I truly do feel like a proper horse owner. I am well informed and I can actually speak to the trainers if I want.

I am a satisfied member. These guys try hard, they are open and easy to communicate with.

The IRC puts their money where their mouths are. I am impressed.
