Well, the end of the All By The Book trial period crept up on me without me noticing!
All By The Book is a very different system to the normal systems that I am used to reviewing. The system is purely mathematical and, from the evidence of the trial period, it seems to work as detailed in the system manual. The manual itself is fairly slim (9 pages), but it doesn’t contain the usual padding – instead, it gets straight down to describing the system and two methods for how to apply it. There is an associated video that goes through the system in detail and you can also download a spreadsheet to help you with some of the calculations.
The system relies on using bookies that offer Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG), and you are basically looking for a winner that has drifted between the time that the bets were placed and the starting price offered. The system determines what races to target and how to identify when to place your bets. This is an interesting system where the gains can be very significant, but where the losses are severely limited. If a total of £100 was bet on the race, then the maximum loss would be around the £3.00 mark – often much less.
The system manual suggests that you start looking for qualifying races at about noon but, during the trial period, I found that in order to maximise the amount of betting opportunities, it was often necessary to check the markets a number of times throughout the day. Whilst it is possible to do a single check of the markets, you will find that the number of fully qualified races (i.e. those races on which you can bet) will be much reduced. The system, therefore, favours people who are able to monitor the markets throughout the day.
As the trial period shows, the system is highly successful. In the month that I was running the trial, I made a profit of £360.77 (betting at £100 per race, maximum risk per bet £3), which represents a very healthy return.
My two concerns about the method are:
1) you need accounts with all of the BOG bookies – and, depending on the level of stakes that you want to use – you need to have sufficient funds in each of the bookies accounts to ensure that you can get the bets on;
2) it can take some time to get the bets on (there is no way to automate the process) and sometimes the window for getting the bets on can be quite small. Whilst this is not a problem most of the time, there are occasions where the odds move sufficiently quickly to make the race no longer a qualifying race. The best bet under these circumstances is just to carry on getting the bets on at the adjusted odds. I’m not sure if the odds are being affected by the number of people following the system, but that is definitely something to keep an eye on.
Overall, I have been impressed with this system. It is nice to come across something new and especially pleasing to see it make such a healthy return. All By The Book, therefore, merit’s a status of APPROVED.

UPDATE July 19th 2010
Since our review of this system at the end of May, in which we reported a profit of £360.77, the method has continued to produce fantastic results for minimum stakes.
Just to remind you, the average risk per bet is just £3, yet it produced another profit of £304.46 in June and so far this month it’s up to £494.30. Most days are winning days and losing days don’t hurt at all with the biggest loss in any one day since we started being £7.91. Have a look at the results:
It’s a superb method and if it’s not already part of your betting arsenal then it’s something you should seriously consider.
