Video 2 - Setting Your Correct Staking Levels

Video 3 - The Mindset of The Betting Pro

Video 4 - Planning A Profitable Betting Strategy


I will teach you how to read form and make your own winning selections when betting on horse racing. My back selections still give me over 50% of my income month in and month out.

I have recorded a series of videos looking at how to develop yourself a successful backing strategy and how to incorporate this into your overall betting strategy. I take a close look at all my  back selections from a pretty typical month of backing and clearly showed the expected ups and downs that you inevitably get in a backing strategy when betting on horse racing.

Here is video 1 in the series, in this video I run through the early part of the month (a few years old now but still a great insight into how I think about betting and backing horses) including St Leger week at Doncaster. I also share my methodology on betting and how my emphasis on backing of horses has changed over the years, to give me consistent profits week after week.

I hope you enjoyed that. In Video 2, I run through the 2nd and 3rd weeks of a typical period where the back bets did not land for a number of reasons and we have a run of placed efforts or poor performances from our selections. I also share my ideas on tracking horses through a season and the tool I use from to track my horses.

In the final video I analyse the final week of back selections and show exactly why patience is rewarded in backing. You must be disciplined and stick to your strategy – place you bets and then analyse things over a month, do not fall into the trap of looking at your results race by race or day by day.

A successful strategy must reward you month on month and build your betting bank for you. I conclude this video with a more detailed look at my own betting strategy and how I made +137 pts profit, even though only +52pts came from my back bets.

Learn how to find weak favourites to lay on the turf flat, all-weather and over the jumps.

What kind of races to look at and how to decide whether to lay your selection or not. Another great strategy for adding  3 / 4 pts per day profit to your betting bank. Watch the video below:

Over my past 26 years betting for a living, the one constant has been in my successful laying of horses to lose races on the betting exchanges.

In 2002 I developed my Handicap Lay System for laying horses on the All-Weather and the Flat through the season. I still use this system today in 2017 to make me a consistent 15 – 20 pts profit each month.  Although I could use this system through the winter for handicap jumps races, I continued to work hard and develop my National Hunt Lay System for the jumps and I know run both systems side by side, depending on the circumstances and conditions of a race.

Since setting up Racing Profits in 2009. I have reserved my two personal Lay Systems exclusively for my email Subscribers and offered my lay systems as part of their monthly subscription. However, I started to receive more and more requests from people who did not want to back horses but solely lay, and so I have decided to offer each of my lay systems for purchase individually.

You can now purchase either my Handicap Lay System for the flat or my National Hunt Lay System for the jumps by clicking the links.


I will share with you the secrets to one of the most consistent forms of betting there is and that is trading on the betting exchanges.

Learning to trade the pre-race markets on Betfair should become one of the cornerstones of your own betting strategy as it has to mine over the past 12 years. My goal is to make £250 - 300 per day from my trading, by identifying the safest markets to scalp and swing trade on a daily basis.

I have recorded some basic introductory videos to help you understand the world of the betting exchange and how, as a Betting Pro you can use them to your advantage by trading. Video 1 is below and you can watch Video 2, 3 and 4 by clicking the link underneath. Enjoy.

In Video 2 I look at price movement and carry out a simple trade using the Betfair matrix. In Video 3 I introduce trading software and why it gives us an advantage in the markets. Finally in Video 4 I use software to green up and make a guaranteed profit.

Laying Horses 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 be very profitable.
