Mystery horse bot is a simple piece of software that sits on your VPS (ideally), and watches Betfair exchange prices specifically on UK Horse Racing. Just before race-off, the bot will place BACK bets  on selections in the Win Market that fit a preset criteria (that you are not privy too, nor do you need to be – I guess this selection criteria is the mystery). You can of course run it on your home PC but this will require the PC with a permanent connection to the internet during racing.

The software is simple to install and quite modest in its’ aesthetics with a simple listview on the left hand side showing the races for the day and on the right hand side a list of the bets the bot has placed during racing. The bot will continue to place bets throughout the day until either of two things happen. Either a take profitstop is hit or stop loss is hit. Recommended stops levels are enabled via buttons within the software but these can be overridden with your own preferences if necessary, (there is also a demo mode for you to trial the software if you so wish).

The bots default stop-settings are :  a provisional 3.5 point profit target OR a 6 points loss, (I state provisional as actual figures achieved will be determined by timing between races, if a race is late starting the next race can place bets before the previous result is known).

The bot is set to place its bets 30 seconds before race off and with selections being price related – as prices move rapidly in those last few minutes – not all subscribers will get exactly the same selections as one another.

The bot can place up to three selections in one race and on these occasions it will split the stake equally among the selections (this setting can also be overidden if you so wish)

Despite its encouraging results last year,  during the period of this review Lady Luck was working against proceedings and Mystery Horse Bot has really struggled to prove itself.

Whilst a recovery of sorts was made in January after a terrible December, the bot still wasn’t able to make sufficient ground to regain a profitable position.

Staking a £6,  split equally on up to the maximum of three bot selections.

Total Points : 40 LOSS (Profit & loss /accounting for Betfair commission on winning bets) a loss of £218.60

FINAL balance :  £862  (start bank : £1200) / Representing a loss of £338

I like the simplicity of this software and on some days, the bot finishes in the first race having achieved its profit target for the day, but on most other occasions it was a protracted battle as evidenced by the final balance. Mystery Horse Bot has to be FAILED on account of its selection process simply not being accurate enough for a profitable return to be seen during the trial period.

Update : Confusingly enough, Graham made contact and advised that he had in fact made a marginal profit of £27 to £6 stakes over the same period using the same stop levels.

My Summary Results

Pts P/L £ Points P/L Reported by Bot
Dec -47.72 -286.3 -47
Jan 40.45 242.7 52
Feb -12.68 -76.05 -3
Mar -36.4 -218.6 -17.3
 TOTAL PTS -56.375 -15.3

Note a difference of 40 points between actual P/L and that reported by the bot.

Now I do know that selections are not set in stone, ie. they are price dependant so bot selections on one setup may not necessarily be the same on another as the market can move quickly in the closing stages of betting. But, I understood that differences between are likely to even out over the longer term. I think the main issue here is that the bot does not account for Betfair commission on the figures that it reports and correspondingly the profit stop doesnt take this into account either.

Cash Master Racing

I had no luck on the Grand National yesterday, but did rather better with my own service. We only bet in one race, the 4.50 at Chepstow, and there were two selections. One of these, Ossies Dancer, did the business for us romping home at odds of 46 BSP:

I’m having a punt on Matt Bisognio’s tips this year. You can get his full breakdown here:

The bets are:

Teaforthree (12/1)
Burton Port (18/1)
Big Shu (22/1)
Lion Na Bearnai (40/1)
Raz De Maree (66/1)

I’ve gone for Bet365 as they are offering half your stake back on all each way bets on this race, plus they are paying 1/4 odds on five places.

Bethawk is looking very encouraging after the first month period from March 2nd to April 1st. It is up 95.73 pts!  This robot has continued to operate flawlessly. The results declared below are from my Betfair live account.  For comparison purposes, the Bethawk configuration software logged the profit at 95.04 points.  This is after a total of 1860 bets! The small difference arises mainly due to commission rounding subtleties.

I have in fact been running a slightly modified version of the recommended DP9 system. The official DP9 system includes 9 micro-systems. In fact,  you can select any number of micro-systems from a total of 24 micro-systems. My system is called the DPcm9 system, where cm stands for cash master. DPcm9 also consists of nine micro-systems with one micro-system different from the DP9 system. The total profit from the DP9 system (as reported from a live account) is 62.24.

Here are the bets from DPcm9 for the first month of testing:

Horse Betting Analyst

Yet another fantastic month showing 80 points profit! (Strike Rate 30.7%, ROI 38.79%).

That’s the 10th consecutive month of profits, with an average of 75 points per month made in that time:

Mar 80.30
Feb 106.20
Jan 105.00
Dec 83.05
Nov 30.00
Oct 40.93
Sep 7.15
Aug 50.60
Jul 226.40
Jun 19.68

We’ve started the year in cracking form with 291 points profit in just 3 months at an ROI of 64.3%!

Coming off the back of 617 points in 2013 and 500 in 2012, are we set for another astonishing record points haul by the end of 2014? Certainly, with the days starting to get lighter, the sky could be the limit.

Another winning week adds a nice sum to the bank. The system owner did comment that the transition from jumps to flat sees some poorer quality racing at this time of year so it is pleasing that he is being very selective as to where our money should be placed

The Pro Punter Package

The Pro Punter Package is essentially a horse racing ratings and selection package and is available for £19 and comes with a 60 day money back guarantee.

The main “guts” of the system is a 14 chapter e- book that will walk the user through the key areas of rating a race .There are guides on how to proceed through the various stages of producing Form Ratings, Speed Ratings, Class Ratings and finally Pace Ratings .The book also narrows down the type of race on which the ratings plans should be employed .Finally once the various ratings are produced there follows a practical example of selection.

There is also a chapter on staking with 3 plans dependent on the amount of risk the user feels most comfortable with. The book concludes with a chapter that explains 3 simple but effective selection plans that can be easily deployed.

Following the procedures of selecting a race and then rating the race took me initially about an hour plus to produce the 4 sets of ratings .The speed ratings package is probably the slowest element of the 4 but with practice and a spreadsheet to record the ratings, and thus the start of a database, there is no doubt the whole procedure will become quicker .Subsequent efforts on 2 other races saw me get down to under one hour per race and I did find a winner as well.

However this is essentially a “mandraulic “system and this may well deter many people who want a fast result .No one is going to get rich quick and throw their job in next Monday morning because they invested in this system. Like many things in life what you get from this system really all depends on how much effort and time you are prepared to put in.The steps that the system goes through are logical and full of common sense and probably the sum of several years’ worth of betting experience condensed down into 14 chapters.

A few more worked examples of the final selection from the 4 sets of ratings would have been helpful but for only £19 it is as least as good if not better than many far more expensive products out there in the market.

As a first step into racing or indeed for those who have tried multiple quick fix solutions and failed or do not want to be tied to a tipster service this would be a very useful guide indeed. For those of you who fit these categories of would be punters I recommend this package.Approved2
