The Advisor

The Advisor joined us from the 1st January 2016. He proofs all of his tips to Racing Index under the proofing name of SP2A - The Advisor

The Advisor is a pseudonym for one of the best known and most respected Horse Racing Journalists and Tipsters in the United Kingdom.

He (Paul) has been in the public limelight on TV and Radio and has written for major
National and Horse Racing Industry publications since the 1990's.

For the first time in his long and illustrious career "The Advisor" is giving his tips
to a "3rd party" Tipping Portal and he has chosen the SP2A Members Club for this
exciting adventure, we are frankly honoured and delighted beyond words to have him aboard.

Paul uses his own version of form analysis and some inside information from an extended networks of contacts, that he has built up over several years, to deliver 4-5 tips per week to SP2A. He will seek good value horses in the better quality races, predominantly at the better grade tracks.
