One Good Bet Overview / Day 1 Selections and Results


The “One Good Bet” system is a horse betting system that assumes a certain level of knowledge and in some instances, "personal judgement". Selections can be found fairly easily using your favourite newspaper, Racing Post or Sporting Life online. The system is for Flat racing only and operates Monday to Saturday only between May and September.

There are a number of criteria such as "unsuitable race types", number of runners etc., which need to be taken into account before arriving at possible selections.

System Claims

I will quote the website directly "This method is very straightforward to operate. Bets are easily found and can be placed in the morning. It does not involve laying horses, dutching or following the live betting. The method is supplied with fully verified and checkable results which are not “back-fitted” or created in hindsight. These are genuine bets that I made myself at the time."

The system has been tested over one year only, namely:


From a total of 84 bets 53 were profitable = 63%
Total profit using £20 stakes = £2705
Return on investment = 161%
Average profit per month = £541
Longest profitable run = 12
Longest unprofitable run = 4

The "bet" referred to above is a £10 each way double so the staking cost of each bet is £20.

The System

The system arrives as a 5 page document and costs £95.00 which appears to be the standard Sportsworld Publishing price.  The system also comes with  access to a local rate tipping line (May to September) to help you confirm that you are making the correct selections. The author (Bernard Hibbert) was also the author of the "Simply The Best" NH system which I have previously reviewed on Geegeez.

Selection Method

1). Follow the specified criteria using race card information in your favourite newspaper or Online.
2). Bets can be placed at any time but beware of the number of runners requirement.
3). All bets are to level each-way stakes only.

There may not be selections each day but on those days were there are selections there should be just one bet. The need to exercise "personal judgement" on some days means that it is possible that every individual may not identify the same selections. As a consequence, I would advise you to avail of the tipping line to confirm that your selections are exactly the same as the author's.

Starting Bank

The author stated that during 2009 he commenced with a Starting Bank of £200, each bet will cost £20.


The bet is a £10 each-way double.  For the purpose of this review I will stake as recommended by the author and calculate any winnings to published SP.

The Review Period

Initially the review will run from the 1st - 31st May 2010.
