Horse Profiles Flat 2011 Review

Horse Profiles 2011

Horse Profiles 2011

Following on from my Easter Sunday special, I want to tell you a bit more about a betting service that has hit the ground running. And I’m not in the slightest bit surprised. The reason I’m not surprised is because it’s produced by the stats man David Peat – a guy whose devotion to horse racing research is unparalleled.

His service, Horse Profiles for the Flat 2011, is made up of a number of profit-pulling pieces, as follows:

- The Horse Profiles themselves, this season comprising a virtual A-Z of horses to follow (from Aaim To Prosper to Yaa Wayl, in fact, so no 'Z' in this A-Z!)

- A Flat Trainers report, similar to the much missed Trainer Flat Stats. As you may know, I haven’t produced that for the past three seasons, and this guide takes my old concept and runs nicely with it.

- Three additional trainer reports - Favourites By Track; Favourites By Track and Jockey; Trainers using Claiming (Apprentice) Jockeys. These are real insights into when trainers' runners are 'expected'. The apprentice one is especially useful as these horses tend to get sent off longer prices than they ought to due to the perceived inexperience of the riders...

- EIGHT flat racing systems (!), some for backers, some for layers.

- A daily update service throughout the entire flat season (i.e. to mid-November) where the day’s positive and negative runners (and trainers) are highlighted along with some commentary as to why.

- A weekly review which aims to identify additional horses that are developing a specific winning profile, based on what they did that week allied to their existing past performances. These are generally for the Class 2 or higher contests only.

- Full results analysis.

- And some additional ‘goodness’ in the ‘Freebies’ section.

Phew! That’s a lot of stuff! And, although I’m slightly biased, I think Horse Profiles is both excellent and excellent value. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

First, let me tell you why I think it’s excellent… I think Horse Profiles is excellent because it was the core element of Flat Racing Profiles that I released two seasons ago. That little manual (which had a torrid month of March, hence why David sensibly launched in April this year!) still made 45 points from barely as many bets last season. Without March, it would have been nearer 55.

In other words, if you’d stuck twenty quid on each selection, you’d have made £900 or so, from just a handful of bets.

It will come as no surprise that David’s at it again with, as I write, winners at 6/4 (very first bet!) 11/10, evens, 11/4 and 2/1 with just one horse beaten so far (Sunday evening when I write this), and that one was 3rd at 2/1. ;-)

Now I want to say a few words on why this is excellent value.

The manuals alone are waaaay better than the ‘silver bullet’ dross out there (obviously!). In fact, comparing them is mildly offensive to David’s efforts in pulling together this research in an extremely user-friendly format.

Two years ago, he and I sold that same service (less the trainer element) as Flat Racing Profiles, for £97 for the season, which was in itself the best value to be had.

The inclusion of the daily updates is something that most people would charge a monthly subscription for – probably somewhere between £20 and £30 – and reasonably so, given the legwork associated with going through the books and finding the day’s players (actually, it’s more akin to fingerwork, or eyework, but there don’t seem to be words in the dictionary for that – I like making words up!)

Anyway, I slightly digress and definitely am using too many words to say that, at £47 for the whole season all in, David’s guides and daily selection service are the real deal, and a real steal.

It’s one of the very few services in my flat betting portfolio (after the last three seasons, how could it not be?!), and in my opinion it should be in yours too.

Oh yeah, I forgot to say, David is also an absolutely top man, living the dream in France – cutting grass by day (occasionally, the slacker!) and poring over the horses by night. I’ve been to his place and I’ve got to tell you, he’s got this ‘life’ mallarkey sewn up!

Bottom line: You get a lot of top class info for not a lot of money here. So you can enjoy it for ages without having to shell out again (and again… and again).

With another Bank Holiday weekend coming up, if you’ve got some free time, take my advice and at least grab the freebie (it's on the same page as the full product option), if not the full season’s offering.

At £47, he could have charged that for the ‘freebies’ alone and had few complaints. [Note, I know I'm sad like that, but I reckon he's done a stellar job here in 'moving the free line'. If you don't know what that means, just grab the free stuff and you'll see...]

Enough! If you're serious about a portfolio approach to the flat season, you need this in your corner.

    Unfortunately, I can’t work out how to use such data.
    I got a whole bunch of similar stuff for the NH season just ending from Ben Aitken as a part of the NTF package. Yet I didn’t make a single bet based upon it.

    Surely if a person was interested in such stuff, they could (until 15 March 2011) jut run lots of queries against the (free) A Massey stats and got something rather more unique – i.e that hundreds of otheres weren’t using.

    Just my novice punter thoughts,

      Hi Ian

      Firstly, to overcome your not knowing how to use such data, David puts the selections in the members’ area every day. So you can just log in and follow his advice, if that’s what you want to do. Or, if you’ve more time, you can use the information to inform your own betting along with other considerations.

      Regarding ‘surely someone could just run lots of queries’, that’s like saying ‘surely I could just make my own four course dinner, so why do I need restaurants?’! In other words, yes, if you had a spare four or five weeks, you could produce this info – though not at Alternatively, you could pay a relatively small fee to have the work done for you. 😉

    I have tried many time to unsubscribe to your service, but still post keeps on arriving in my in box, please, please stop sending me opportunities to purchase info from services Im not interested in.


    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Karl, with all due respect, every single email I send you has an ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of it.

      If you’ve signed up to multiple lists, then unsurprisingly you will need to unsubscribe from multiple lists. Again, there is a link to do this on the page you’re redirected to when you click the link in the email.

      To remind you, I despise spam and only send emails to people who have ‘double opted in’ to receive them.

      In other words, you’re receiving my emails because you asked to. And you have the power to unsub at any time. Please resolve this at your end, and consider exercising more caution in future when mass subscribing to services you’re only peripherally interested in. 😉

    Shame about the Massey site, but alot of work put in over the years, hope he’s enjoying retirement, long as it hasn’t given you any ideas Matt 🙂

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Ha, I’m not planning on going anywhere, Zen. So I’m afraid you, and everyone else, are stuck with me! 😉


      • DAVE YEATES says:

        Hi Matt, I’ve just bought David’s system with part of the profits I’ve made from the last recommendation I took from you, Racing Secrets Exposed. I’m expecting a major reversal any time soon because he’s been on fire recently. Thanks for that.

  4. Ed says:

    Hi Matt, Sorry to say, i was not impressed with the NFT system, It fell more than short of what was recommended to be a hot sysytem for the Aintree 4 day Festival… I’ll pass on this offer !


    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Ed

      1. NTF was not written by David Peat.
      2. I didn’t recommend NTF (though I do think that overall it is a product that has much merit, and I like Ben’s approach).
      3. It is harsh to judge any service on four days worth of results.
      4. I would have expected you to know that. 😉

      Of course, I’ve no problem with you passing on the offer though.


      • DAVE YEATES says:

        Right. I agree that what Ben does has much merit. In fact, up to Cheltenham I was well up from his advice. Then at Cheltenham it all collapsed into loss loss loss.,Of course you can’t judge a service in the short term. Rarely, though, do you hear anything about what a service provider means exactly by long term, and when things go wrong I find too often they go running for ‘long-term’ cover. As buyers we have to weigh up how much we are willing to go behind in order to make this long-term profit. I would always want a provider to be confident that their service is very unlikely to go more than 20 points behind. You get someone like Bob Rothman who’s happy to go 50 points behind in the short term to make (he hopes) 100 points in the long term. Not healthy for your bank balance.

    I looked at Davids site but was put off by the £47 till 11/05/2011 detail.
    Does that mean he stops after that or that he will not be offering it after that date. Any clarification ?
    Great deal yesterday by the way!!

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Alan

      I suspect the price will increase after that. Certainly I can confirm that the £47 deal is for the entire flat season until November.
