next in the firing line is Diamond Racing Lays...

Diamond Racing Lays (also referred to as DRL) is as you'd expect a service providing a selection of horses to be laid in UK races and the headline on the DRL homepage promises..."Winning Betfair Tips - Direct into your inbox each day from a Betfair Professional"...so let's examine these claims.

The selections are provided by Jason Matthews, who says he has been betting on the exchanges as a full-time occupation since 2007 and claims to have made a profit in each year since then. Jason makes no wild claims of making hundreds of thousands of pounds, nor does he suggest you will either!

So, we're happy to take that at face value, until we know better. On closer study of his declared results, we see an average profit of 60pts per year from simple level stakes lays and no losing years .

DRL say this is a very easy service to follow, based upon the following advice:

  1. You Join Diamond Racing Lays
  2. You Receive Detailed Emails Each Day
  3. You Place The Recommended Bets & Trades
  4. You Make Profit From Trading The Betting Exchange Markets

Joining the DRL service normally costs £29 per month, but they do have other options available. A 2 week trial can be taken for just £2.00, before reverting to a normal membership fee and other discounts are offered for longer memberships:
6 months membership is just £97.00 (£16.17 per month),
12 months membership is £157.00 (£13.08 per month), meaning you could easily take out the trial offer and then a yearly subscription, giving you 54 weeks for just £159.00 or 43p per day.

The payments are taken via paypal for added security and the DRL service is backed/promoted by Steve Trow's reputable Bets For Today betting portfolio.

The emails have been arriving in my inbox around 10am each day with a clear advice given regarding selection and maximum lay odds (usually 3.99) and it really is that simple.

We will monitor DRL for the next 60 days, declaring all our results to a £10 level stake at Betfair SP, less the usual assumed 5% commission on winning bets.

Final Review

Yet another service claiming past profits and underachieving when put to the test. From Day 1 this showed a loss and although pulling back to £0.00 after Day 4 was never in profit from then on.
The best winning run was 5 twice but at £10 this can only generate £47.50 on each occasion and as we know in laying, the odds of losers are much higher than winners hence with a strike rate of 66.67% rendering it difficult to show a profit.
My main critcism would be there were too many days of 'No Selection' - 15 which represented 25% of review days. There were also 7 days where there were 'No Bet' due to the odds being higher than the limit suggested by the author. This is fair enough but it would need a lot of winning lays to show a profit especially as there was only one selection on most days.

Having said that,  I feel this service needs further input as I cannot see it making profits with only a single daily selection as ending with a net loss of £35.20 was not disastrous but a loss none the less. It could perhaps be reviewed at a later date and is awarded 3/5
