Lay The Field Fourteen Day Trial – Day Two’s Result

You may need to double click on the screen shot for a better view

My Blog post of the week this Monday described a method of laying the whole field in a horse race so that you would profit if at least two horses reached the lay price you set.

Before I start todays round up,  I would just like to thank Scott Ferguson of the Sport is made for betting blog, for originally posting up this method and bringing it to our attention.

I was so impressed with the concept that I decided to do a fourteen day trial where I would pick one race a day to put the method into action.

Today was the second day that I have had the time to put the method into action and as you can see from the screen shot above, it was a losing day, but only just!

I picked a 3 mile handicap hurdle at Ludlow. My reasoning was that even though the going was good at Ludlow today, three miles is a long slog and I have often seen nailed on winners run out of steam very late in a race of this nature.  9 runners was not a massive field but there were enough to hopefully run at a good gallop.

I decided to set my lay odds at 1.33 again, so that if I did win I would be paid out at odds of nearly two to one.

As you can see from the highlighted portions of the screen shot above, the race was won by Whispering Jack and there was also £743 traded at 1.36 on Talenti, which was just three clicks above the lay odds I had asked for!!

Trial Summary
Number of bets: 2
Number of winners:1
Strike rate: 50%
Profit/Loss: +£1.86

I hope you enjoyed this post

Stay patient


  1. Watching with interest how your trial goes.Seems a decent method that could give a nice steady roi at very little risk.there surely must be some correlation to number of runners distance handicaps Ground etc.not researched this much but there must be plenty at this game already??? I'd think the key part is picking the right race. Good luck

  2. Thanks for the interest and feedback uphillbattle.

    I think you have hit the nail on the head with regards to the distance, race type etc, having an effect on the methods performance.

    14 days will not really tell us a lot but I view this trial as a start to my research of the method, not it's entirety.

    Thanks again
