The #1 Secret To Making More Money From Your Betting On UK Horse Racing

Setting yourself up to make money from horse racing – not to find more winners!

Yes, setting yourself a betting bank up is critical to your success, as I explain in the video above, but I also want you to start thinking about your approach to making money from your betting and how you develop a broad betting strategy that covers backing, laying and trading on Betfair.

The biggest challenge I hear from people I speak to on a daily basis is that they are betting too much on the wrong type of race. I want you to start being selective, understanding what approach will work best for what type of race. You will see that I focus my laying on handicap races of a certain size on the flat, all-weather and over the jumps. My backing is specialist, there are certain maiden, novice and beginner races on the flat and jumps that I focus on tracking horses in.

There are races I avoid like the plague, such as amateur races and hunter chases, these are low quality and impossible to make consistent money from. The same can be said in my trading on the pre-race markets – on a daily basis I will only trade on 70% of the races, I explain this in detail in my trading training and how I select the races that are safe to trade, and again whether the race will suit a scalping approach or I am looking for a large swing trade.

This is why, back in 2009, I set up my blog – to share with others, the secrets I had learned over my years as a betting pro making my income from trading, laying and backing on UK horse racing.

Where do you start with your betting strategy?

At the core of my approach to making more money from horse racing, is developing a predictable “betting strategy” that revolves around the three disciplines of backing horses to win or place, laying horses to lose and trading in the pre-race markets on Betfair.

Over the past 28 years I focused my efforts on developed a mix of income streams that will give a reliable, predictable and measurable growth for your betting bank.

The betting mix I have found works for me, better than any other, is 70 / 2 / 4 – so to trade on around 70% of the races in a day, have 1 – 2 solid back bets and 4 – 6 lay bets using my systems.

Backing Horse To Win

Lay Horse To Lose

The earliest reliable profits I made were from reading races and identifying weak favourites to lay on Betfair. I developed my two lay systems based around the type of races which were most profitable for laying on the flat turf, all-weather and in jumps racing across the year. By adopting a “fixed liability” staking approach to laying, you can minimise loses and be very profitable.

Trading On Betfair

The most reliable profits that I make on a daily basis are from my trading on the pre-race markets on Betfair. Let me teach you how to trade effectively in the Betfair horse racing markets and you can make a reliable £250 – 350 per day, as many of my subscribers have found out. I share the secrets I have learned about trading since I started in 2006 through to trading in the present day.
