        Thanks Barrie, I’m on the train now. Hope trumps expectation, but he ought to have a solid chance. No bet at the price for me, will get a nice pot anyway if we are good enough.

        Hoping you enjoy the read this evening.

      Hi rednblue

      Yes to valuevaluevalue, but as I mentioned in reply to om0202, I don’t think we need an atom-splitter (whatever one of those is) to know if we’re getting value. More on that next week…

    Great video Matt describing a journey we’ve all been on. I would take issue with one thing however. Your definition of value is the new orthodoxy for most punters when in reality there is no such thing as any horse having a true chance. Even if there were you would need an encyclopaedic knowledge of the form book plus the skills of a trained mathematician to work it out. I have operationalised a different approach to value. It starts from the fact that 90% of races are won by horses priced 10/1 or less. I look at the betting market for races I want to bet in and see how many horses are priced 10/1 or shorter and assume they all have an equal chance of winning (of course I know they don’t). So if there are 4, then the value price must be bigger than 3/1, 5 means the vp must be bigger than 4/1 and on. Using this crude approach in conjunction with Instant Expert has given me a 75 point profit since 1st January. Try it sometime.

      Hi Mike

      That’s very interesting. An American author I really like, called Michael Pizzola, refers to the ‘random line’, which is a similar concept whereby for instance, a ten horse race would have the random line drawn directly above the first horse at bigger than 10/1.

      I don’t agree that one needs to have an encyclopedic knowledge to quantify value, nor even that one has to create one’s own tissue (i.e. forecast odds). I think value can be achieved by ‘feel’ almost as readily as by more scientific endeavours. A single horse may not have a quantifiable ‘true chance’ but a larger group of similar types, for example Sir Michael Stoute’s second time starters, would give us an idea of likely performance and therefore a likely value price.

      That example is in isolation from the rest of the field, but what I’m really saying is that we can get a feel for whether a horse is probably over-priced without diving deeply into the form book.

      Thanks a lot for your comment, and well done with the Instant Expert/random line approach – it certainly sounds very credible. I’ll be interested to hear how it pans out over a longer period.

      Best,
      Matt

      Thanks Stanby – I’m very glad you can share it as well. As for the smoke-filled betting shops, I think I preferred them with the blacked out windows and the smoke, but NO roulette machines..!

      Hi Ian

      Great to hear you’re enjoying Gold. As for the nurse, she was a wonderful woman at a time when I was still a little boy, mentally at least. Luckily for me, I met another wonderful woman who has provided me with a wonderful son, too. Very lucky boy am I!

    HI Matt, what a fascinating, eye-opening video. Your opening ten minutes or so perfectly describes the sort of punter I was. To be honest, I’m no further forward really! I think I have found a horse that has a really good chance when looking at trainer, jockey, weight, class, going etc., etc and it finishes 10th of 12! I look forward to your next video where maybe, just maybe, punting may actual become a pleasure (and even profitable) rather than a constant disappointment.

      Hi Bob

      I’m so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the video and, yes, I’d say plenty of us have been there – and some maybe still are. I hope to offer some more food for thought next week on how to make punting a pleasurable – and profitable – pursuit!

    Would your system be able to find and select the dream partners that were mentioned in your free report and save all the time of going through each combination one by one manually. Is this where this is all heading? Still interested if so.

    Really enjoyed the video Matt and I’m sure we have all been there at some stage. Your search for value brings to mind a comment made to me many yΓ¨ars ago by an elderly punter who claimed to have been in the game for nearly 50 years.I asked him what to avoid in horse race betting and he replied instantly. ‘ Short priced favourites in handicaps lad !’ This has been one of the best pieces of advice I have ever had.I am sure you don’t back them on a regular basis.
    Looking forward to your next offering. Best wishes.

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Thanks Dave. I’ve actually come a cropper opposing a couple of short priced handicap favourites (one trained by Luca Cumani springs to mind!). But as a general rule, I’d say it will keep you sane, for sure.

      Next video will be up in a couple of days – Monday I think.

    Hullo Mat I think that you are the gentleman tha turned me to lay betting a fair day or two ago. i think your method was to lay the horse that was top speed but not if it was non favourite.for something so simple it produced its fair share of losers but the odds eventually made the scheme financially unsustainable. Now I choose the third favourite as apparently they are good “layers” and then I check the post data.If the horse is not high in the post data table it is not a genuine third favourite but a good proposition as a layer All this may appear a very haphazard method of selection but it has been good to me for a while now. the only slight problem is that the only place to obtain is the racing post and Ifind that it is a little unreliable to obtain on the net and is a mixture of OR,RPR, AND TS.tHE RACING POST Tthen gives a list of the runners in order of liklelyhood of winning. could you tell me another possible source of this information? If tou have any suggestons I would be most grateful,regards Terry Warington

      Hi Terry

      I’m not sure that was me – and I’m not sure it wasn’t! Haven’t ever really had that mechanical a method for laying horses, certainly not without an odds ceiling.

      Anyway, in answer to your question about likelihood of winning, that’s down to the individual. If you want a ‘general view’, it will be a case of ordering all runners by odds, with the shortest priced favourite being the most likely winner. However, the challenge – regardless of backing or laying – is to find the most WRONGly priced horse…

      I think I’m waffling now! Thanks for taking time to watch the video and to comment.

      Matt

    Really enjoyed the video Matt, as usual your musings are knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time, i remember a few years ago you put me onto the book by nick mordin, but id forgotten about your other suggestion against the crowd, ill be downloading that to my kindle for reading whilst im in gran canaria in a fortnights time.
    I think you already know that im the instant expert or RAR as its known now biggest fan, ive made plenty of money from using it and its my first port of call every morning, ive been using gold virtually from when you first started the service and am always spouting on in the groups im a member of about how damn good it is, keep up the good work please and keep the informative videos coming, they are most appreciated.

      Hi George

      Thank you very much for your kind comments, which are much appreciated. I know you’re a generous supporter of our forum, and always take time to thank other members for their contributions. You may not realise it but it that sort of action which sets the standards in our forum and, in my view, sets it apart from many/most other such groups.

      Really pleased you’re getting such value from Gold, and thank you again for your ongoing support.

      Best Regards,
      Matt

    Sound advice looks great the videos brilliant and to listen to it really helps I can feel the amount of all your hard work will help so many punters see racing in a different light and not to do what the average punter does is to pure their well earned money down the drain without firstly taking a look at your sight thanks for all your hard work

    Enjoyed hearing the journey you took and I can relate to that having struggled before really understanding the value behind any successful strategy. I have now found a couple of systems that are beginning to work for me (good prices as well) and one I believe you helped to set up! Looking forward to your next instalment!!

    Hi Matt, Great video, I joined GeeGeez back in November 2016, after a blip and dip in my punting. I seemed to be jumping from tipster to tipster and poorly judged bets with no real structure. Since I joined I have listened and watched your videos on you tube and have started to form a real base to my betting which I have now developed various strategies and built a profitable portfolio over the four months. I have also joined one of your students sites, which is leading me into another punting direction. A big thank you from me and here’s to continued success.

      Hi Steve

      That’s great news, very pleased to hear your betting has turned a corner. I think that it’s usually lack of information rather than a desire to improve that holds people back from getting more out of their punting.

      Thanks for the comment,
      Matt
