I was hoping to start giving you
an GHB xml file for the new Back/Lay selections that I started to show you over
the weekend, but there is only one selection today and so I don't see the
Thursday win on the lay took us
into profit and remember that was after having 4 losing lays on the first day,
and we have only now had 3 winning lay's.
Don't forget that from today the
selections will be appearing under the "Lay/Back test" section below.
We often talk about finding
"value" when betting and Darren (betting School) put his own slant on this in
the Pro Betting System manual.
So what is finding value?
A runner who's odds do not
reflect it's real chance of winning (or losing) is said to have value, but it's
of course not easy to find such runners and of course you have to work out away
of knowing if there is value in the price.
The problem with value is that
is based on your (or someone else's) opinion of the chances that runner has of
Most people agree that Betfair's
prices reflect accurately the chance a runner has of winning. Unlike bookies
prices that also have profit built in and some ridiculously low outsider
But that doesn't mean you can
not find value it just means you have to work out your own way of finding
Over the next couple of weeks we
will have a look at what you should be looking at when trying to find away to
determine if a runner represents value or not and to do this we need to look at
the form of a runner and decide if everyone else has got it wrong!
To do this we need to come up
with away of rating horses so we will look at the available information about a
runner based on fact's, rather than speculation, so we will not take into
consideration the "tipsters" table because this is speculation, it maybe based
on informative information but we need to look for the runners the "tipsters"
have ovelooked. Don't forget tipsters (paper ones anyway) have to have an
opinion on nearly every race and runner where as we can pick and choose where
This should give us and
Lay/Back System Test
There are two types of
selections here. The first is a lay tip as long as the price is under 2.00 and
the second is a back tip as long as the price is 2.00 or above.
There is one thing to think
about here. If a lay selection goes to 2.00 or above you could decide to back
it instead and the same goes for a back selection dropping below 2.00 you could
then lay this. It's probably best to back/lay these near to the "off". We are
not using a staking plan at the moment, just level stakes to see what

Back test system ( "A 'back'

This system is available
as part of The Pro Betting Systems e-book.
As a new idea I am going to
start a more aggressive staking plan trial and stick more closely to the
Please Note: This is a trial.
Please do not attempt to run a staking plan unless you understand exactly what
you are getting yourself into.
New Trial Started 21/07/2008.
Start Bank £500.00
Bank Now: £353.22
We will use 5% of
our current bank as our base stake (divided by the odds we get) and we will use
the CashMaster system to get back loses except when the selections price at
betfair is under 2.00. All winnings will be calculated -5% betfair charge. If a
runner is under 2.00 and we are recovering loses then we prospone the staking
plan and stake the whole 5% stake.
