When I started this trial back in August, I have to admit to knowing very little about dog racing. If I’m honest, I still don’t know much, but what I do know is that this guy knows his greyhounds. Indeed, he owns and races them, and what I found over the past few months is that the bookmakers tend to rely somewhat on his knowledge, and adjust their prices accordingly.
There are many races every day which are priced by the bookies with over-rounds to make their pockets very full, everything happens very quickly and races are almost over before they’ve started.
There’s no liquidity at all in the early Betfair markets, and just a frantic few minutes of trading before the hare is running.
Greyhound Maestro concentrates on the principal meetings, being Hove, Central Park, Crayford, Romford, Perry Barr, Monmore and a few others.
As you can see from the graph, the service is profitable and consistent, as long as you are able to get on at the early quoted prices. With results like these, I can certainly recommend the service, being nearly 60 points up in four months, with no long downswing.
However, this comes with a warning, that the prices which are quoted in the morning invariably disappear quite quickly and always end up shorter at SP. This is a clear indication that Greyhound Maestro consistently finds value bets, but it can be frustrating following him if you can’t get the odds.
As he says:
“it’s getting much harder to eke out any value with early prices, with the bookmakers cutting odds after one or two bets and their restrictions on how much you can actually have on! Also I know that my bets are used by the bookmakers as a guide and to cut the odds.
Basically I’m doing the card for them.
I’m seriously thinking about my future tipping & betting, maybe abandon my early price bets and either wait until 10 minutes before the off to bet & post my selection/s or just play at the best odds available on Betfair.”
So, watch this space. If he does find a way, he’s the man to have on your side.
Quoted price results are:
Strike rate 32%
Profit 56 points on 180 bets
I’m very happy to approve this service from a tipster who is clearly an expert in his field. BUT this comes with the significant caution that getting on at the early quoted prices is essential to the profitability.
