Stop At A Winner Bot

This is a new trial of a piece of betting software published by Steve Davidson.

It’s a very simple bit of kit that you download, input whatever settings you like, and turn it on to bet for you.

It can bet in any horse racing market, in any country, and can either back or lay the selection to whatever price criteria you set.

The bot works by backing (or laying) the Betfair favourite at whatever time you set before the off. The stake is determined by whatever profit target you have set, and if the selection loses it will bet on the next race using recovery staking to again make your profit target.

A lot of people don’t like recovery staking as the liabilities can get quite high on a losing run, but the software has in built stop losses to protect your bank, and you can set it to bet on really low amounts… below the Betfair minimum bet.

You can set the bot to literally stop betting when it hits a winner (hence the name) or you can set it to reset and start again at a winner so that it will continuously bet the markets all day long. The software will even start again the next racing day meaning that if you leave it on 24 hours a day on your computer (or even better on a VPS) it will literally bet for you, day in, day out without any further input from the user.

So this really is a true ‘set & forget’ bot.

I started this up on my VPS on 19th May and set it to win £1 per winning bet (using £100 bank) using the recommended Strategy 1B.

The results for my first week are as follows:

Bets: 153

Profit: £36.92

So that’s nearly 37 points profit in the first week and a 37% increase in the bank!

It will be very interesting to see how this performs!

Blakey Lays

This is a lay service that I have been testing since 1st December 2014. I had been waiting for the vendor, Martin, to set up a website through which he can take subscribers as his small client list so far is managed entirely by e-mail. Since Martin is a professional bettor rather than a webmaster or marketer, he has asked if I could host a page for him so he can just get on with the job of running his service.

Martin sends an e-mail usually around 11.30am with the day’s information. There are generally one or two lays a day although Boxing Day unusually gave us seven lays… all losing. What is surprising about this service is that the Lay bets are always the first or second favourite and therefore a nice low liability.

Considering this, the strike rate so far of 84%, with only 14 losing bets out of 86 is remarkable.

Martin records the results to £100 Lay stakes which is normally a bit steep for Lay betting but seeing as these are all low priced favourites it’s actually pretty feasible. He has a handful of clients already and only wishes to take on 25 more to protect the prices for his clients.

The results using £100 lay stakes since 1st December up to and including 20th May are as follows:

Win Market: £3,157
Place Market: £1,825

However, it must be noted that the profit was actually at £4,528 and £2,424 by the end of January, so February, March and April have seen an overall loss which would have be suffered by anyone joining in February. This is partly due to a large decrease in the number of qualifying selections… there were only 4 qualifying in April and only 3 so far in May!

The problem has been that although a selection ticks all the right boxes for a very likely losing horse, the price is often too big to get involved with.

Last week Martin decided to address this problem by publishing selections that pass on all criteria except for price, and the results are quite startling.

In one week, there were 27 higher priced qualifiers of which 26 were winning lays… a strike rate of 96%.

The profit to £100 level stakes was £2,110 at Betfair SP (after commission)

The profit to £100 level liabilities was £243.50  (after commission).

Not bad for a week!

Now, the losing lay won at an SP of 4.6 so not too bad, but for me the other lays are simply too high a price, sometimes double figures, to consider laying at £100 level stakes, which makes laying at liability the sensible option.

This certainly seems to be the way to go with this service and indeed I’m now laying all selections, including the main service bets, to level liabilities.

Despite the poor run over the last few months, the service has made a reasonable profit and the introduction of the higher priced selections should see the profits start to grow again.

For now I’m happy to approve this service, and will continue to bet these selections myself, so I will be doing regular profit updates.Approved2
