From the category archives:


This week Graham was contacted by the system author to ask if results could be based on advised prices rather than the Betfair Starting Price (BSP) as it was felt that the selections represent value which is not reflected in the BSP.

So, after some thought I’ve decided to restart the review using advised prices from this week. Going forward I will check that the advised prices were available when I received the selections so that the results reflect better the aim of the service.

This does mean of course that you would not be able to use a betting bot on the selections as you need to place bets at advised bookmakers. It also means more time in managing your money if it has to be moved between accounts.

This week there were only two selections and one performance was so disappointing that the system author commented specifically on the result.

Monday 24 February No selections

Friday 28 February 15:10 Doncaster: Chebsey Beau: 1pt EW, 2nd at 5/1 = +£2.50

26-Feb -29
27-Feb 27
28-Feb -41

There were two quite notable days with good profits to be had but overall the balance took a slide. My calculated results (accounting for Betfair commission follow ):

The results are to £6 stakes,  split equally on upto the maximum of three bot selections.

Total Points : -3.0 (month total reported by the bot) / Profit & loss (accounting for Betfair commission on winning bets): £-76.05

Current balance :  £1080.65  (start bank : £1200)

In summary : the month started poorly, and then redeemed itself a little later on but not sufficiently to make a profit for the month overall.

The Longshot King

We reviewed and approved this service back in March 2011 making 52 points profit in 59 days of our trial. The service actually generated 274 points profit to level stakes in 2010 and in the whole of 2011 it made 304 points, which is really excellent.

However, in 2012 it had a torrid time and ended up losing over 100 points which would have blown the bank of anyone joining around that time. We moved the service into the Neutral section and advised to watch it to see if it recovers.

At that point Richard suspended the paid access and then opened it up as a free service to the public and has since then been working to bring the service back to the levels of 2010 and 2011.

I had a chat with Richard and he openly admitted that the service had suffered due to too many selections and has been testing limited selections for some time now which has seen a big difference in the results.

If you go to the site you can see what has been happening and its clear that Longshot King is still capable of producing very solid results. Over the last 21 months the service has made 578 points to level stakes.

Richard is now advising smaller stakes but with a betting bank of 200 points where previously it had been 100 points.

He has added his own betting bank managers tool to the members area which allows you to take profits when certain milestones are reached whilst protecting your bank and making sure you have the right level of stakes available.

I am happy to move this back in to the Approved Services section on the blog.

Right now he has a very special deal which you can take advantage of prior to the start of The Cheltenham Festival, so have a look now before you miss it.Approved2

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.

- You receive a full race analysis with ratings that give you the background to why they have gone with those selections

- In races where they don’t have a selection they will give you their view for your placepots or personal bets

- Selections are sent by email the night before racing with staking advice and which bookies are giving the best odds

- You also get Cleeve Racing’s ante post portfolio to date

- And you get every other ante post selection that comes out

And as an extra bonus Cleeve will also give you get free coverage of..

Doncaster’s Lincoln meeting
Ayr’s Scottish Grand National Meeting

Newmarket’s Guineas meeting

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.
