"The Full Circleâ€ system is a horse betting system that encompasses both Flat and National Hunt racing.Â To understand the system requires no previous experience and is suitable for beginners.
Selections can be found using either Racing Post Online (recommended by the author) or Sporting Life Online though whichever you choose will be a matter of individual preference. There are currently no costs associatedÂ with viewing the requisite information on either site.
The selection method is clear and unambiguous so everybody should identify the same selections on any given day.Â To quote the website directly "Full Circle works all the year round with a wide range of Flat, National Hunt and All Weather races. As with all my systems I recommend you place no bets during April â€“ a really dodgy month for all sorts of reasons. You can normally reckon on between 2 and 3 bets a day (none on Sundays) and the number of bets varies only a little from month to month, even during the summer months."
The banner headline on the website is "Â£831 average profit each week (Â£100 stakes)", so 8.31 points profit on average per week. Those of us with more modest sums available can thus expect cÂ£83 on average per week to Â£10 stakes.
The quoted profits (August 2009 - May 2010) to Â£10 level stakes are listed in the following summary Table.
The website also states "Detailed results for Full Circle of every bet placed since 1st January are available elsewhere â€“ they are fully checkable once you have the system." Unfortunately, I don't know where "elsewhere" is, the information is certainly not on the website and was not included in the manual I received (this may have been an oversight).
The system arrives as a 5 page document and costs Â£97.00.Â There is also an option to subscribe to a tipping service (Â£40 per month) and this can be done without purchasing the system.
1). Identify the selections using your chosen Online service.
2). All bets are 1 point win except when selections are priced between 5/1 & 13/1. In these circumstances the bet is 0.5 points E/W.
3). Where a selection is priced at 14/1 or greater it is recommended that a Betfair place only bet is placed. If you don't have access to Betfair then a 0.5 point E/W bet should be placed.
4). No bets during April.
5). No bets on a Sunday.
6). Bets during the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot meetings should also be avoided.
The author recommends a "1 point level stake on all bets. Although losing runs of more than 10 are unusual, I recommend you bet only 2.5% of your Bank, in which case with a Bank of Â£200, you would be betting with a Â£5 level stake" (for exceptions please refer to points 2). and 3). above. For the purpose of this review I will bet at Â£10 level stakes and calculate any winnings to published SP.
