The Syndicate is the long-standing service run by The Betting Rant and comprises two different experts from two different codes. Matt Houghton focuses on the National Hunt season whilst Miles Tredwell (also the brains behind The Racing Code) is the flat racing man, covering both turf and all-weather seasons.

In both instances though they focus on a narrower range of races than just the code itself. Matt focuses on the higher quality racing on Saturdays and at the major festivals, whilst Miles is an expert in Class 3 to Class 5 races.

Selections are only available via the members’ area of the website, although occasional text updates are used as well for selections outside the normal posting times. Miles’ flat selections are posted at 11:00 on Monday for that day’s racing and then at 19:00 Monday to Friday for the next day’s racing. There are generally no selections on Sundays, but a text message is sent if this changes. Matt posts on Friday evening at 22:00 for Saturday racing, and generally at the same time for each day of the festivals covered. Once again, a text message is sent if this changes.

The flat selections cover win and each way picks and will occasionally incorporate some multiples alongside the normal singles. The National Hunt picks tend to be win and each-way singles, although the placepot is often attacked at the main festivals and has had some reasonable success over the years.

Stakes across both sets of tips range from 0.5 to two points in total. The recommended starting bank of 75-points is to cover both elements of the service.
