Cleeve Festivals 2014

Cleeve Racing are the UK’s most profitable tipping service as ranked by the independent proofing service Racing Index. So all the claims they make are easily verifiable…

They pride themselves on running a transparent service so the one thing they are not going to claim is that they always win… last year’s festivals were tough to call and they admit up front that they made a loss. (How often do you get a service that shows that?) However that was the first time in 5 years that they had so on the stats the likelihood is that this year they will be back in profit.

Cleeve Racing have shown a profit over 4 of the last 5 Cheltenham Festivals

2013 – 23 points loss – or £460 loss to £20 stakes
2012 – 24 points profit – or £480 profit to £20 stakes
2011 – 38 points profit – or £760 profit to £20 stakes
2010 – 89 points profit – or £1780 profit to £20 stakes
2009 – 42 points profit or £840 profit to £20 stakes

That’s profit of 170 points profit over 5 years… or £3400 to £20 stakes

They have also shown a profit over 4 of the the last 5 Aintree Festivals too.

2013 – 27 points loss – or £540 loss to £20 stakes
2012 – 8 points profit – or £160 profit to £20 stakes
2011 – 42 points profit – SR 12% – £840 profit to £20 a point
2010 – 75 points profit – SR 42% – £1500 profit to £20 a point
2009 – 26 points profit – SR 19% – £520 profit to £20 a point

That’s profit of 124 points profit over 5 years… or £2480 to £20 stakes

And for the last two years they have included Punchestown in the package

2013 – 6 points loss – or £120 loss to £20 stakes
2012 – 49 points profit – or £980 profit to £20 stakes

That’s profit of 55 points profit over 2 years… or £1100 to £20 stakes
(all advices have been proofed independently by Racing Index)

So what do you get included in your Cheltenham Festival ‘Survival Kit’?

- You get comprehensive coverage for every day of the Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown festivals.

BetHawk – Revisited

Bethawk  is  a fully automated betting bot for use with UK horse racing on the Betfair Betting Exchange from AceBots Software. It is fully automated, running 24/7 without any user interaction. BetHawk consists of a number of micro-systems, each micro-system with its own staking. You select which micro-systems you want to follow and  the amount to stake on each one: thereby creating your own portfolio of micro-systems.

BetHawk  caters for all sized betting banks, from the punter thats like to start small with as little as 10p bets, to the high stakes professional gambler up to £50 per bet.  Pricing starts at £39 per month.You can increase your subscription to allow you to run more systems with increased staking.

BetHawk has been previously  reviewed here at Cash Master and received a neutral rating. At the end of the previous trial, it was recommended that the product be reviewed again at a later date. Since August 2013, Dynamic Managed Portfolios have been added, where  portfolios are created and managed for you at no extra cost.

In this review, I will be monitoring one of the Dynamic Managed Portfolios called the 9 system version, which is up over 500 pts  since 1st August 2013. The cost to run DP9 @ £2 stakes is £55 pm. This is made up of £39 for the basic bot (includes 5 credits)  plus 4 extra credits @ £4 each:  £39 + £16 = £55.

The review will last for  at least six months, to get a good long term appraisal. The starting bank is 1000 pts. This is ultra-cautious and is over 6x the maximum draw down since 1st August 2013.

I will be running BetHawk on a VPS, specifically the Tagadab: SVS1000, their cheapest Windows option. This is perfectly adequate for Bethawk @ £14.99 per month. Note Bethawk will not run on a Linux server. You can of course run BetHawk from your own computer at no cost.

The review will begin shortly.

You can try BetHawk for free here:

Racing Success

Racing Success is a straightforward horse racing backing system that you can buy for the very modest one-off price of £29.

It’s been developed by Mark Boyle of Racing Winners and Racing Profits, both of which have already tested and approved at Cash Master.

So what do you get for your £29?

You get a 27 page pdf manual, e-mail support and a money back guarantee.

It’s a system for the win markets only and can be used at either the traditional bookmakers or Betfair. It involves betting on carefully selected handicap turf races in the UK and only when the minimum odds are met. The average winning odds are between 5/1 and 12/1 so there are longish losing runs but good odds on the winners should mean a decent long term profit.

I have been using Betfair to place my bets for ease of use and because, as ever, Bet Engine keeps a neat record of all my bets, however I suspect more profit could be gleaned from shopping around for the best bookie prices.

Since there are not a huge number of bets, I’ll run this review for a good few months until we get a half decent number of bets under the belt with which to make a judgement.

So far I have to say I’m pleased with progress. I’m only betting with tenners but this sort of system lends itself to larger stakes once you’re confident in it’s continuing to produce the results.

My results since 11th December:

Bets: 63
Successful: 12
Unsuccessful: 51
Strike Rate: 19
Avg Odds: 5.88

Profit: £48.10

I’ll update this every few weeks.

You can buy Racing Success for £29 here:

The National Hunt Season has now ended and I will no longer be monitoring this service. After 492 calendar days, the overall starting bank of 160 points (in total for all 3 subsystems) stands at 158.94 pts. So a loss of 1.06 pts to level stakes.

Using the recommended stakes, the overall starting bank of 385 points (in total for all 3 subsystems) stands at 365.19 pts. So a loss of 19.81 pts.

On individual subsystems:

1) The Favourite Backer  down 7.66 pts at level stakes (down 38.30 points at recommended  stakes)

2) The Two Year Old Maiden down 17.18 pts at level stakes  (down 17.18 points at  recommended stakes)

3) The National Hunt Winners up 23.78  pts at  level stakes (up 35.67 points at recommended stakes)

So having forked out £167 + VAT for one year of this system (plus additional free bets for all subsystems for the last five month period of the National Hunt Season), the punter would be out of pocket by at least this amount. Consequently, this system remains in the FAILED category.Failed

Better Horse Racing Service

Time to add another review to the list. This time I will be reviewing the Better Horse Racing Service. This is an advisory service where selections are emailed each morning. The selections can be straight win bets or each-way recommendations. Occasionally you will be advised to place multiple type bets as well.

The service is run by an ex-racehorse owner and jockey’s agent. This experience means that he has made many contacts in the industry over the years. These contacts are one of the main sources for each days selections. Being a regular attender at race meetings is also given as a reason for the success of the service.

The service is selective so the number of recommendations each day is low, sometimes no selections are recommended as patience is also one aspect of the service that members will need to practice.

The monthly charge for the service is normally £59.99 but for the first month you can get it for half-price at £29.99. To increase the value for members it is advised to use Best Odds Guaranteed bookmakers but the point is also made that this is not mandatory.

Given that the number of daily selections is small I will report results on a weekly basis. I will use the BSP to report results and place level stakes at £10 per point based on a starting bank of £1,000.

Mystery Horse Bot / Month#2

After an abyssmal month in December, I am pleased to report that the Mystery Horse Bot has had a serious change of fortune in January.

I have genuinely hoped things would turn around for this piece of software and this month has proven that December was simply one of those months
that all systems experience from time to time. (I understand that since July 2012, December was the second losing month overall).
Here follow Januarys’ up-trending results reported by the bot.

19 winning / 11 losing / 1 break even day(s)

Note : As a result of Decembers progress or rather lack of, the bank took a nosedive and I reported the figures in terms of points profit. The bot does not permanently record any of its transactions
other than displaying the selections it has made on the day and there is no accounting for Betfair commission on winning bets. This is troublesome, particularly for a review like this
as readers quite understandably want to know the bottom line, not a theoretical points balance.
It took me some time to do but I trawled through all qualifying races for the last couple of months and came up with the following figures which whilst a more accurate representation are still not exact
to Betfair protocol, (commissions are charged on winning bets only, so on  occasions where the bot places more than a single bet – the losing bets need to be taken into consideration before the commission
is applied. This isnt easy to do, as this would require working through each and every race against each and every selection..!)

As you can see, these commissions soon add up, were a more obvious proof to this fact needed…. see below.
The results are to £6 stakes, which is split equally on upto the maximum of three bot selections.

Total Points : -47  (month total reported by the bot) / Profit & loss : £-286

Total Points : +52  (month total reported by the bot) / Profit & loss : £242.70

(my January figures do not seem to remotely compare with the figures on the website which are showing vastly higher profits for this month….ie. £750 to £10 stakes… I know that not everyone will get the same prices
as this is dependent upon the time the bets are submitted to the exchange, but surely not such a large difference? …. in contrast, Decembers results are comparable to mine)

Current balance :  £1156.70  (start bank : £1200)

In summary, a cracking start to the New Year. Let’s hope that February proves to be a similar success with equivalent progress to carry the balance into positive territory.
