This is another bit of software from Horse Racing Rates that costs just £39.99 for a full year license. You simply load it up, click on Scan and it scans the whole day’s greyhound races looking for dogs that fit their set criteria. After about a minute you can see the list of selections for the day. You can then click on the export button and it creates a Bet Engine file (or a Bet sender file if you prefer) so that you can quickly and easily load it into your bot to place the bets for you.
They advise using the Bet Engines ‘gentle’ recovery staking plan called Lay 1-4 and setting the maximum lay odds at 4.0.
The results published on their website from 24/03/2015 – 07/09/2015 shows a strike rate at a steady 72% and a profit of 111 points! Not bad at all for just under six months and almost zero effort if using a bot.
I began testing this on 13th October 2015 and, except for a week off over Christmas, ran it daily with a live account, betting to 10p stakes, until the end of May 2016, so just over seven months.
Here are the results:
Strike Rate: 62.4
Average Odds: 3.00
Profit: 21 points
As you can see from the graph it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride and although it had a good run around the middle of the trial, making around 160 points, by the end of the trial it had given that back and we ended up pretty much where we started.
For seven months of effort (and you do have to spend five minutes a day setting it up), in my opinion the return just isn’t worth it.
I will give this a Neutral rating as I didn’t lose money but that’s bordering on the Failed as I can’t see anyone using this software.
