This launched around the beginning of December 2012 and I kept an eye on it for a while to see if it might be of interest. The results looked pretty remarkable, especially for a low odds laying service, so I decided to test this for myself and took out a subscription at the beginning of April 2013.
I ran it on the Bet Engine but you don’t need to use a bot, you can simply lay each selection directly on Betfair. The Bet Engine just makes it easy for me to keep a tally of the results.
The service is run by a chap called Raymond Mills and he sends out a daily e-mail, usually around 10am, with the days selection plus you can get them directly from the members area of the website in case there are any e-mail delivery issues.
There is one selection a day and you have a choice of three different staking plans. You can lay each selection to level stakes, you can lay each selection to level liabilities, or you can lay each selection to 10% of bank (liability).
I never wrote up a final review for this service last year as the membership filled pretty quickly and the doors closed before I had completed my trial, however, Ray has just re-opened the service to new members so I’m now prompted to give my verdict.
The results are as follows:
£25 level stakes: +£1,669.50
£100 level liability: +£2,153.97
10% Liability (£1000 bank): +£4,497.02
This is a very nice, simple, laying service that takes only a couple of minutes a day to place your bet and is clearly profitable. Ray is very knowledgable and has also written an excellent National Hunt Trainer system which is also available on his site.
I have no hesitation in recomending this service as it makes an excellent addition to anyones betting portfolio.
UPDATE October 2017
This service has been doing very well this year taking a £1000 betting bank to £2,232 so far and we’re currently on a really nice run with only one losing bet in the last twenty one selections.
The bank is at an all-time high for the year (more than doubled since 1st Jan), and the jumps season is just getting under way, which is when we seem to make most of our money with this service too.

UPDATE July 2018
Ray has decided to call a halt to Flat racing but will be re-opening for each National Hunt season:
“I’ve decided to call a halt to RaysLays, at least for the time being, as the performance recently on the flat has been pretty appalling. As you may be aware, the selections are generated by a computer program I wrote a few years back, which to a large extent utilises speed and form figures. This seems to work very well on the National Hunt, and last year worked reasonably well on the flat, apart from May when there wasn’t much form to go on, but this year on the flat it’s been dire.
I’m therefore going to call a halt, as I don’t like running a service which is costing people money. The last selection will be on 31st July, so that anyone who paid up to 30th June will get a full month’s selections.
In the meantime, I will cancel everyone’s subscription (or you can cancel yourself), and refund any subscriptions paid in July.
It’s probable that I’ll restart the service at about the beginning of November and run it purely as a National Hunt service throughout the jumps season, where it’s made a profit consistently every year to date. I’ll let you know when this happens, and should you wish to you can re-join with a fourteen day trial.
