Puntology 3.0

Michael Wilding is soon to be releasing Puntology 3.0 and today is giving away a neat bit of software that automatically rates any race.

Michael recorded a video a few years ago that shows how you can manually perform the process, and it takes about five minutes per race. But this ratings software does all the work for you. And it’s free!

Beaumont’s Bets

A New Beginning

If you’ve been a reader for any length of time you’ll know that I rate Beamonts Bets as the most profitable horse racing service I’ve ever seen. I often get asked if it’s actually possible to make a full time living from betting on horses and Paul Beaumont and his subscribers have demonstrated that, yes, it is possible and they’re doing it!

Have a look at these results (points profit per month):

Total 2830.70 points

That’s a total profit of £141,535 to £50 level stakes and you’ll notice there was only one losing month in the 28 months of the service.

For backing only, a betting bank of 200 points is recommended, however for those wishing to have a smoother ride without the ups and downs of losing runs, Pauls Back/Lay 75% system which involves laying off 75% of the bet on Betfair, requires only a 50 point bank and produced a remarkable 1590.59 points profit.

The service has been running for two and half years with subscribers happily paying £79 a month for the privilege of Paul’s daily wisdom.

So you can imagine my surprise when Paul sent the below e-mail to me in November:

“Good morning, Graham

I know this may come as a surprise to you but after 2½ years of providing the Beaumont’s bets service with a fair amount of success, I have decided to bring the service to a close. The reason is actually quite simple; I just want my life back. Having been tied to my computer for six mornings a week, I now feel, at my advanced age, I should be taking things a little easier.

Now, I have been asked many times whether I would host a seminar or something similar in order to explain how I make my selections. I know I went down the seminar route with the Beaumont method but that was actually for two very specific reasons. Firstly, I wanted to illustrate to a live audience in real time how I made money without risking any of my own and I also needed to keep the numbers low because with too many people having access to it, it simply wouldn’t work for anybody. By charging £2,000 per seat, as you know, we did certainly keep the numbers manageable. This, however, is not the case with Beaumont’s bets. In fact there is an argument for saying that the more people who do this the better, particularly for those like me who are waiting to place lay bets at the back end. I have decided therefore to put together a training DVD and also to produce a manual for those who may be interested in knowing what I do and how I do it. It’s really something I think people will understand and be able to do with a little practice.

When I produce the DVD, I will not only illustrate how I make the selections, but also what I do every morning in order to provide those selections to my subscribers. The reason I am doing it this way is this: I am not at all precious about what I do, inasmuch as there may be people who would use this in order to place their own bets, but may also have a desire to provide the selections to others, just as I did. This is perfectly OK with me, and, if someone wants to use the information in order to create their own betting advisory service, they have my unconditional blessing. The site will remain open and will be available should anyone wish to refer anyone else to it. All the results etc. will remain on the site. I have to say that being a “betting adviser”, even amongst just the people you know is fun. There are a couple of bars here in Lanzarote where my status is almost godlike. In fact in one bar I am known as the Messiah and people bow when I walk in. It’s very irreverent I know but it is fun and I enjoy it. I also, very rarely, have to buy a drink in these bars. After all, when you think about it, there are millions of people out there who have never even heard of Beaumont’s bets but would still appreciate a profitable and reliable betting service. There are also those who would be unable to make the selections at the time necessary but would still be happy to receive the selections a little later in the day.

As you know, Graham, I have made a sizeable amount of money since I started this, somewhere in excess of £200,000. Whilst most of it has come from actually placing my bets, a fair chunk of money, as you can testify, has also come from subscriptions to the service

So, there you have it, should anyone wish to use my method in order to make their own selections, that’s fine, but if they would like to extend this into a business (just as I did) then that’s fine also.

The timescale involved is that I will spend some time in December/January in England actually having the DVDs and the manuals produced, in order for everything to be available in January. I don’t actually recommend doing this in the worst of the winter months so I believe the beginning of February would be a good time for people to start.

Now, to cost; I wanted to price this at a level that I feel people would be able to afford without too much heart searching and so I have decided on £297 for everything, which is actually less than four months’ subscription to the service. 

At this stage, I am only concerned with those people who would have an interest in owning this product. I need, obviously, some idea of how many to have produced. So, if this is something of interest to them, could you ask your readers to e-mail either you or me in order that I may have some idea of the numbers involved?

Best regards


So there you have it.

Paul has retired but made his complete method available on DVD. For a one off fee of £297  you can learn how to do this yourself without having to pay a monthly subscription. This means you can use the method whenever you like without having the pressure of having to do it to cover your subscription fees.

And it’s a method that is probably the most profitable you’ll ever use.

Back in June 2013 the Value Horse Selections Service (VHSS) was launched, and since then a select group of subscribers have been pulling in a fantastic income (all tax free of course) by “working” 1-2 hours per day placing a handful of bets. By simply copying the bets that are posted to the selections page each day these users have made over TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND POUNDS using £25 each-way stakes.

Now of course there are many professional bettors out there who would turn their nose up at “only” earning this amount, but for the majority of us this equates to an annual salary of around £75K (taking into account tax and other deductions).

Now I will be completely honest and admit that this is not for everyone. Betting in this is not particularly “exciting”. If you bet for a “thrill” then chances are you will not be suited to earning money in this way. However, if you are able to treat your betting as a genuine business then VHSS could well be for you. Their method takes advantage of mathematical edges in the betting markets, and 2014 will no doubt prove to be another great year for members.

Autobetting is, as the name suggests, an automated betting service. For a monthly subscription you get a betting bot that you run on your VPS or leave running on your home computer and it will bet continuously 24/7.

It runs four different systems concurrently and once switched on there is nothing further to do. So this has been a nice, simple service to review.

I loaded the bot on my VPS on 16th August 2013 and left it running. There have been no problems at all.

The results (up to 14th December) are:

Autobetting 3 – 256 bets – 80 wins – SR 31.2% – LWS 5 – LLS 14 – Total -8.78 points

Autobetting 4 – 954 bets – 151 wins – SR 15.8% – LWS 3 – LLS 28 – Total +7.68 points

Autobetting 2 – 134 bets – 6 wins – SR 4.5% – LWS 1 – LLS 40 – Total +8.03 points

Autobetting 1 – ( From Sept 1st) – 603 bets – 116 wins – SR 19.2% – LWS 4 – LLS 26 – Total +166.24 points

The Autobetting System 1 actually started from September 1st and clearly is the one on the money. You can choose to run just one system or all of them, for the same price, it’s up to you.

Based on the results to date I am happy to categorise this service as Approved.Approved2

I will update this service in another three months.

Horse Betting Analyst

This is without a doubt one of the best horse racing services I’ve come across.

They finished the year in fantastic style, with a further 83 points profit to add to the total – making an incredible 617 points profit for the year!

That’s an average of 51 points per month, with 10 profitable months and 7 consecutive profitable months from June onwards.

This is, of course, on top of the 500 points they made in 2012 which, I think you’ll agree, is a truly phenomenal 1117 points in 2 years.

They’ve got a new special offer now: 3 months for £150 instead of the normal £499, so if you want to make your betting pay in 2014, this has to be part of your betting arsenal.

Racing Gold

G’day all, Happy New Year

I decided we should look at another product from Tipster Warehouse, The Racing Gold service, which offers 4 or 5 backing tips every day on the UK and sometimes on the Irish horse racing win and place markets, the selections are sent to your email and arrive each day by 11.00am (UK time), I started the trial on Friday 01/11 and have received all my selections up to now on time.

There are no hard and fast rules for this service, they do recommend using Betfair for placing your bets and having a starting bank of 100 points. All bets are to level stakes, with the advised amount on each bet being 1 or 2 points. There is no progressive staking or chasing losses. I used Betfair as I’m in Australia and the UK racing runs during the night (my time), so I also used a bot to place the bets on both markets with all bets being placed 5 seconds before the off.

The selections can be a win only selection betting 2 points or a win and place selection betting 1 point on each, there is no progressive staking. Our original starting bank was 100 points and after our last review at day 41 the bank stood at 51.87 points.

The following results for the Racing Gold Service is for the period 12/12/13 – 01/01/14 inclusive, there were 18 betting days and 3 non betting days for the Christmas holidays.

After 59 days we have lost our starting bank of 100 points. I know you can have up’s and down’s with any system, maybe our trial period has covered one of those down periods and it could pick up again, but I’m still not convinced of the value of placing a win bet and a place bet on the same horse as shown in the results without a high strike rate you will lose money.

This service did show some positive results before the trial, but I’m going to have to place Racing Gold in the “Failed” category.Failed

I’ve been monitoring the Victor Value Racing selections now for three months and feel it is time to publish my findings. The service itself is very straightforward with selections being emailed to members on the morning of racing. Each selection is discussed and an appropriate stake advised. Victor also provides information on which bookmaker is offering the best odds at the time the email is prepared. I think it’s fair to say (and pretty much common sense) that where possible Best Odds Guaranted (BOG) bookmakers are recommended.

During the review period there have been a couple of times where Victor has wavered a little bit in detailing how his selections are made and the type of staking to be adopted. As the service name suggests the idea is to try and find value at the odds on offer for any particular selection. This means that the strike rate will generally be on the low side as well priced winners should theoretically make up losses on the losers. To some extent this has worked, unfortunately for the review period in question there has been a fair degree of inconsistency which has meant highs and lows along the way.

With a starting bank of £1,000 at the start our result of £1,028.86 at the finish is hardly likely to set the crowds roaring. At one point the bank was up £370 and to me that was a positive sign. That was not to last though and whilst one has to accept peaks and troughs I’d like to have seen a steadier progression over the period to really convince me that Victor’s service is worth following.

He is adopting a slightly different strategy going forward that aims to provide a smaller number of selections overall that will hopefully bump up the strike rate. Together with this his staking is also increasing to £20 for a win bet and £10 each way. Only time will tell whether this makes the necessary difference.

Given that the bank did see a healthy rise during the period and drawdown wasn’t that catastrophic I’m giving the service a neutral rating as I do believe there is potential for the service if the strike rate can be improved.Neutral

Victor Value Racing

Results for week ending Sunday 05 January 2014

A fairly unspectacular week results wise. Victor is changing his strategy slightly going forward by reducing the number of selections and increasing the amount staked on each horse recommended. As this happened starting this week the stakes are now £20 for a win or £10 each way. Given this slight change I have decided to wind up the current review and will be posting my findings shortly.

Mystery Horse Bot

For the last month, I have been trialing a product for those that love automated betting …

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 profit stop 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 upto three selections in one race and on these occasions it will split the stake equally amoung the selections (this setting can also be overidden if you so wish)


For the purposes of this trial, I will be using £6 stakes and a trial bank of 200 points ie. £1,200

NOTE : One thing that I found a little annoying is that the profit / loss figures reported by the bot, are before Betfair commission has been accounted for, which in terms of a review will of course skew the achieved figures somewhat. I dont think it unreasonable for software to take into account your commission rate and perform the calculations for you as I am sure that most users would be quite keen to know the actual profit/loss figures for any specific day. Given the number of selections per day, this would be a really onerous task for me to do manually with my results so be aware that all figures quoted below are before any Betfair commissions have been considered.

Although software operation has performed admirably during this period, the selections have proven less satisfactory than previous months and we are currently showing a loss of £354 (excluding Betfair fees).

I would hope January will  make good these figures and bring us into profitable territory.
