Lay The Favourite

Welcome to our review of Lay The Favourite

Lay the Favourite is the culmination of a 2-year development period by the Lucrative Racing Trust, who are also the brains behind Place Bet Profits.

They spent this two-year period to perfect the service, and then a further 8 months to the end of 2012 of real money proofing since then to test its profitability.
During this proofing period they claim to have achieved excellent results as follows:
183 successful lays from 236 providing a strike rate of 77.54% at average odds of 3.84 resulting in profits of £576.15 which equates to a return of over 10.5% above stakes.

All this was achieved via seven profitable months from eight.

As the name would tend to suggest, the Lay The Favourite service focuses on the laying aspect of the betting exchange, and their selections are purely in the shorter odds range to keep liability as low as possible. The maximum lay price is 5.0.

No previous experience betting is necessary, you will receive the selections for the day in the morning to your email address.
All you need is an internet connection and an account with a betting exchange such as Betfair or Betdaq.

You can trial Lay The Favourite for a whole month for just £7.00 by simply clicking their name anywhere on this page, before deciding whether or not to take out a full subscription and the current subscription rate for this service is a reasonably-priced £27 per month.

We shall trial Lay The Favourite for a period of at least 60 days recording results using the advised staking plan (2% bank increase), subject to an assumed 5% commission rate.

Here is my final summary of the Lay The Favourite service

The facts of the 60 day trial are as follows:-
Starting Bank    £500.00
Finishing Bank    £618.72

60-Day profit of £118.72, the bank increased by 23.7%

Wins to runs: 55/76 (72.36%)
Longest losing run: 4    Loss: 65.17
Biggest loss was a run 0f 3 with a loss of £105.84
Longest winning run: 11 (Twice)    Gain: £111.03 & £119.60

Days with No selections: 10

The selections were received just after 10 am via email on most days.

Therefore with a profit of £118.72 from 55 winning Lays I am delighted to endorse Lay The Favourite as a profitable service to follow.

    Just looking at the trial for Lay the Favourite and after 41 days you would have paid out £27 twice = £54 and also £15.11 down i can only conclude that system is no good. If i had purchased that system at the start of your trial, i would be very unhappy indeed.

    Christopher Scott. (Just my opinion)

      That’s very valid point you’ve made there Christopher but I think you’ve been a bit hasty in your post and conclusion.

      Firstly, the review is structured to be over 60 days and is this example it has recovered very well to finish in profit. My view is that April can be a poor month for backers and layers due to the unpredictable nature of racing during the month (end of the NH season, start of the Flat, neither having reliable form). Therefore, I’d expect any system to be giving unreliable figures over that period. It’s not a useless exercise as it has readily illustrated the variance such a system can encounter. The latter days of the trial does show the service in a good period but the earlier days also show how badly it performed. You can draw your own conclusions from the data provided but giving it a chance to complete a 60-day review is best in my opinion (but longer is better for a more informed decision).

      Secondly, if you consider the service offers a free 30-day trial period, you’d only have paid your 2nd instalment near the very end of the 60-day assessment. Adjusting the profit to account for the cost is an excellent idea and one I personally record therefore, in this case, the service still finishes ahead.

      I look forward to hearing what the reviewer concludes.

        I have to agree with David here. It’s a little unfortunate that our reviewer, Dick, has been unwell of late, but I’ve been in touch with him today and he’ll have his final appraisal to me this week.
