INTERIM REVIEW

This is an initial review of my test for the Lay The Ratings System / Service, provided by Gordon Charles.

For a monthly payment of £27, Gordon will send the selections to you, otherwise there is there is a twenty-nine page e-book, to show how to obtain the selections, with a number of examples to show how they are obtained.

A size of bank is not recommended in the e-book, and for the purpose of the test, I assumed that one point equals £10. There is a staking plan within the e-book, and Gordon asked if level stakes can be shown as a comparison, which I was more than happy to do.

I showed the results with the early prices (from when the e-mail is received), and at two minutes from the off.

Selections:
151

Winning selections:
117

Strike Rate:
77.50%

To Staking Plan (Early Prices):
Loss £199.80

To Staking Plan (Late Prices):
Loss £183.98

At Level Stakes (Early Prices):
Loss £311.90

At Level Stakes (Late Prices):
Loss £346.00

For the first twelve days, the results were going well, 43 wins from 51 selections (84.3%), but it was the last three weeks that the banks went downhill with 74 wins from 100 selections (74.0%).

I have to admit I liked the system, the rationale behind the selections made sense. I received the selections from Gordon the evening before racing, and on the very few occasions that he was unable to send the selections, there was always an e-mail apologising for the delay, and an estimate of when they should be sent.

I also sent some e-mails to Gordon during the course of the test, the replies to which were always quickly replied to and courteous.

Gordon has asked if the test could run until the end of May, as he feels that the selections have not performed to the normal standard. I have agreed to this, as the weather in January and February was awful, and you can have the odd losing month with what are very good system.
