    My methodology consists of laying horses only in handicap race.

    The rules are :-

    8 or more runners
    lay odds between 1.8 – 4.5 (Betfair)
    Check horses form with Racing Post (£7.50 p/m for extensive details)
    There has to be 2 other horses with odds of 10.0 or less
    Place bet between 10min. & 1/2 hour before the off
    5% max. liability of Betfair bank.

    That’s basically how I’ve been operating with Betfair & Horse Racing for the past 17 months with reasonable success :)

    My lay for today is as follows. Remember to only risk 5% of your Betfair or Bookie account.

    NOTTINGHAM 2:35 6F FILLIES H’CAP CLASS 4

    HIGH ACHIEVED 3.05 LAY

    Laying Advantages – CLASS
    WEIGHT
    GOING ?

    Laying Disadvantages – DISTANCE
    TRAINER 3yo STATS

    If there’s no rain today at Nottingham, then the course could get a little firmer & that would suit the selected horse, if it stays Good & not GF then all the better !

    Thanks for your kind words….. I have been using that methodology for well over a year now & stick to it through thick & thin & has returned a decent profit. The key is DISCIPLINE & never blindly follow the crowd !

    Hi people, first post – go easy on me!

    So shmeeko69, when you say you’ve had some success with ouyr method, how many points are you making per week, month or year roughly?

    I also agree that you have to stick with a method through thick and thin, many people fall at that hurdle and is why they never make any money.

    Hi Mogul

    Strangely enough, I’ve never operated a points system. I risk 5% of my Betfair bank on particular races. My criteria is –

    H’cap races only
    8 runners or more
    At least 2 other horses odds less than 10
    Check racing post form guide
    risk 5% of bank

    I have tweaked this from other systems I’ve bought & always return’s a
    reasonable profit weekly/monthly

    I also forgot to mention when using this methodology, the
    lay odds on Betfair must be between 1.7 & 4.5 & our
    liability is always 5%.

    Example of £1000 start bank

    (i) £1000 bank – liability £50, if we win

    £1050 bank for next bet – liability = £52.50

    (ii) £1000 bank – liability £50, if we lose

    £950 bank – for next bet – liability = £47.50

    Cheers

    Mark :D

    Hi Mark,

    good luck with this.

    In your 1st post you give an odds range of 1.8 – 4.5, however your last post says 1.7 – 4.5, could you clarify?

    I know its only a matter of terminology but I think you’re actually using 5% of bank for the ‘backers stake’ so your liability actually ranges from 4% of bank – 1.8 shot – to 17.5% (when laying a 4.5 shot).

    Therefore your losing example would only be correct if you happened to lay at exactly evens.

    Good luck again, look forward to next selection
