Well I’ve been keeping my eye on the Specialist this season and despite the fact that it hit quite a losing run, taking the bank into the red from mid April until the end of June, it’s now recovered and made a half decent profit.

From 27th March until 17th July, the profit now stands at £3,362 if betting £100 level stakes at Betfair SP.

However, if you watched my trial period of this system you will have noticed that there is quite some effort required if you want to bet on all qualifying selections, and a substantial bank too if you want to bet to £100 level stakes. At one point the bank was £3,700 in the red and this was after you had already been in a loss position for nearly two months!

You bet on a LOT of horses, many in the same race, and so to bet £100 stakes I reckon you would need a betting bank of a minimum £5000. And the very fact that you are betting on so many races means you are going to be busy and you’ll need super discipline and faith in the method if you intend to keep going through the losing periods.

Having said all that, if you do have the discipline and the funds to cover it then it does appear to be profitable betting on all the races.

Now for something a lot more interesting.

Part of the method identifies Forecast/Exacta bets. I didn’t pay much attention to these during my trial but I wish I had.

There are an awful lot LESS bets if you just bet on the Forecast/Exacta bets. In fact there were only 39 days so far this season with such bets available. The result was a staggering profit of £36,428!

Now, I don’t know about you, but this seems to be a no brainer to me. In terms of effort/reward ratio, I think anyone using The Specialist purely for it’s profit potential may not even bother with the main system bets and only bet on the Forecasts/Exactas. This will mean an awful lot of ‘No bet’ days but when you get a bet, my word, that should be something worth watching. I wish I had got on the 19th June this year, where the Exacta bet won netting a massive £33,300 profit. That must have been a nice afternoon in front of the telly!

When you purchase the system you get a hard copy manual delivered to your door, plus access to the authors private forum where he lists all the days bets (meaning you don’t have to bother working them out) plus a dedicated phone line for those who want it.

So, time to rate the system. If I were rating this method purely on backing every selection to Betfair SP, I would want to put it in the Neutral Section. Yes, it makes a profit, but you have to place a lot of bets and you can be in negative territory for months, which I don’t believe anyone but the most dedicated bettors would be able to stick to.

However, the ‘specialist’ bets, forecasts and exactas, are something else entirely. I think that anyone using the method for these types of bets alone would be very happy indeed. It would be just a matter of checking the site each day to see if there are any qualified bets and betting on them if there are. Even betting tenners on these bets produce fabulous returns and are possibly the most exciting days betting anyone could have!

So I’m happy to put this method in the Approved Systems category and look forward to many more massive wins.
