The Laying Game

Ok, I have to admit, so far I am very impressed with this bit of kit.

I’ve been using it for exactly one week and it seems to be really bringing home the bacon.

It takes about two minutes to set up each morning. I load it, click on the Scan button, and within 10 seconds it spits out the bets for the day. I save those to a spreadsheet, add a date column, and load it into The Bet Engine and start it up.

That really is it.

I’ve been betting to £10 liabilities, so on a losing bet I lose £10, and on a winning bet, I win a varied amount depending on what the odds are on the horse. I’ve been running this on both the Win market and the Place market on Betfair and here are the results after one week:

Win Market

Bets: 103
Successful: 88
Unsuccessful: 15
Strike Rate: 85.4
Avg Odds: 4.93
Profit: £132.53

Place Market

Bets: 46
Successful: 33
Unsuccessful: 13
Strike Rate: 71.7
Avg Odds: 2.62
Profit: £85.42

Total Profit: £217.95

That makes a combined profit of £217.95 to £10 bets in one week for two minutes work a day.

That’s good. That’s very good.

But there’s something else I completely forgot to mention in my opening post about this software…

This software costs £49.95 for A WHOLE YEARS access. That’s fifty quid for a year! I’ve made quadruple that in profit in the first week.

Well, that’s at the moment anyway. The price is going up on this software at midnight on 30th June so if you fancy getting a years access for a stupidly low price, go and get it now here:

Profits From The Turf

This is a laying service that has been running since September last year. It was proofed live on a free daily e-mail service from the middle of September until the end of January and attained an average strike rate of 90% and 230 points profit. At this point it started as a paid service.

This lays horses in the Win market on Betfair, however bets are determined by the price in the Place market.

So you log into the members area each morning to pick up the bets, but you only lay them if the PLACE price is 3.0 or less.

This is very easily set up in the Bet Engine, so bets can be simply entered in the morning and left to run.

I’d been watching this for a while and decided to start betting with my own money on Friday 4th April , betting £20 level stakes. The results initially were very pleasing, with a profit of £340 in the first week. However, it bombed after that, gave it all back and then proceeded to go further and further into the red.

I’ve called a halt to the trial on 23rd June, as the service provider mentioned he might shut down the service due to poor performance. Here are my final results:

Bets: 177
Successful: 146
Unsuccessful: 31
Strike Rate: 82.5%
Avg Odds: 7.1

Profit: -£486.73

I really disappointed how this has turned out as it had an excellent run prior to this. It may be that this service works best during the National Hunt so if it’s still going then, I’ll retrial it to see how it does.

For now, I have to put this down as FAILED.Failed

The Laying Game

We originally tested, and failed, this software two years ago because although it made a small profit, it wasn’t anywhere near enough to make it a viable system.

However, things have changed. They have altered the selection method slightly and introduced some odds rules for both the win and the place markets and the results have been extremely good since it’s relaunch.

The Laying Game is basically a bit of software that you simply click one button and it scans the racing markets in a matter of seconds and throws out the bets for the day. You then bet on these selections as either a straight lay bet in the win market, with an odds criteria of 2.0-10, or in the place market with odds of between 2.0 and 4.0. You can bet to Liability so it’s therefore possible to place all your bets in one go in the morning, stipulating the odds requirements, or if you prefer, like me, you can use a bot to place the bets for you. The software allows you to export all the selections to a csv file, and the only thing I need to do to make this compatible with The Bet Engine is to add an additional column for todays date, which only takes a minute to do, then I simply load up all the selections at the click of a mouse and set it running.

The published results since relaunch one month ago on 20th May show a profit of £287 to just £10 liability staking on the win bets, and an incredible £534 to £10 liability staking on the place bets. This is using just £500 bank too, so over 100% return in one month.

It’s really easy to set up and run, especially using a bot, so I’ll be testing both the win and the place markets at £10 liability staking for each.

Bets: 39
Successful: 23
Unsuccessful: 16
Strike Rate: 59%
Avg Odds: 3.25

Profit: -£66.16

It’s going in the wrong direction at the moment.

Premium Naps

This report covers the period from 1 June through to and inclusive of 15th June.

During this period I received 16 selections of which only 5 went on to qualify.It should be borne in mind that this system operates  almost exclusively on the NH races in the UK and Ireland and thus is working through a relatively quiet period of the year for this market.

From the 5 selections that did qualify there were 3 Losers and 2 Winners and therefore the Strike Rate was down from it’s long term average above 60%  to some 40% for this reporting period.However the staking plan ensure that even at this relatively low S/R the system still managed to limit losses over the period to virtually break even.

So just another with 2 weeks to go on the trial the bank is up in round terms 11 points since the start of the trial on 5 April.

Opening Bank =211.5.0 points Close 15th June =211.1 points (net of 5% B/F comms)

After their tremendous success at Cheltenham and Aintree the team at Cleeve Racing have just released their Flat festival package.

This package made 18 points profit at Cheltenham and a whopping 72 points profit at Aintree, with 11 of the 17 bets producing a return.

Over the last 5 years Cleeves Flat Festival packages have produced over 160 points profit and they include:

• Glorious Goodwood
• York’s Ebor Festival
• Ascot’s Champions Day
• The Cambridgeshire and Cesarewitch meetings at Newmarket

This is not just a two line email with selections and fictitious unavailable prices. This is a quality service that gives you:

• Comprehensive coverage of every day’s racing
• Selections emailed to you the night before racing
• A detailed race analysis with Cleeve’s race ratings to give you the background behind their selections
• Main dangers identified for forecast and placepot players
• Staking advice and which bookies are offering the best odds or place concessions
All selections are on line the night before so you have plenty of time to read the in depth analysis and shop around for the best prices (taking an early price always boosts profits but all results are always reported to SP)

Cleeve are only allowing 200 members for this Festival Package so if you want to get on board I don’t know how long this will be open for so grab it while you can:

The third month of BetHawk has been disappointing.  DPcm9 lost 39.71 pts over the monthly period: May 2nd to June 1st.  At the end of  June 1st,  it stood  at 967.41  pts.

My own DPcm9 system is  performing much better than the official DP9 system that stood at 802.87  pts at the end of June 1st. Both my DPcm9 results and the official DP9 results quoted here are from live Betfair accounts.

Operation of the BetHawk robot  (and also the VPS)  have remained flawless.

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

Hi there,

Apologies in not getting an update to you earlier. I had planned as mentioned previously to have used Stuart’s weekly stats for the updates but no sooner had I mentioned it  he chose to change the format & the weekly one was abandoned. So I have had to go back over a weeks results & add them to Stuarts last 3 days which has been a bit more time consuming than I had planned. Anyway going forward it should be easy enough to work out as he starts the daily rolling profit/loss from June onwards. Therefore I have broke down the figures as per below so we now where we are:-

23/5 – 31/5  =  -3.15.   Revised bank at end of May = £1650.2.

1/6 – 3/6 =  -5.50.  Revised bank upto & including today = £1594.50.


I also received an email from Stuart on Saturday advising that the service from it’s go live date on 24th April upto end May was +34.85 pts (15.97 for April & 18.88 for May) so overall the service is doing well but perhaps not as well as the previous three months when the service was in testing with Kris Jackman.

I will aim to update the results around this time next week, hopefully we will see a good week which is well overdue.
