Sammo’s Lays

By on March 10, 2018

Hi, my name is John and I’ll be proofing my lay selections to you.

Either lay at BFSP but recommended put in lay 6 ticks under current lay price and leave it to run inplay or matched prior to start.

– we will be laying at quite short prices so will hit some winners but beating BFSP in most instances will benefit us in the long term

Rule if over 6 at off no bet

Up to the punter:
1. Set a profit for target the day and stop
2. Lay a % of bank. Recommended lay is 1.75% of bank and compound it.

I’ll post the selections using the comment section below.

    Day 34 Lay Tips for 13 April

    Cancel any bets if over 6 at off – my reasoning behind this is backed up as yesterday Karl Marx was tipped but was well over 6 at the off so a no bet and went on to win at 9 ISP. Looking at the over 6’s as an actual bet rather than a lay may be an angle as they are good value at those prices.

    Bit loathe to lay Daryl Jacob after yesterday but here we are:

    Day 26 Lay tips for 5 April

    Yesterday was a total disaster. Long list of winners, all profit gone. However, we are in small deficit and if you have been laying below sp it is better than that. Need to turn things around and back into profit. I will not panic and stick to my belief as long term I am confident.

    So on to today, as usual cancel any bets if over 6 and put in a lay 6 ticks under price and let it go in play if necessary.

    Day 12 Selections Thursday 22 March

    I am mindful after a great day yesterday that all good runs come to an end. Not that the England cricket team no much about runs. 58!!

    I will be laying these today but I will putting in lays at least 6 ticks under the current lay price closer to the off. Just to recap, cancel any bets if higher than 6 at the off and my max lay on any horse is 4.5. I will also start drip laying so will be putting in lays for example on Drakefell at 2.44, 2.38 & 2.32. I will miss some bets doing this but long term it will pay off.

    Bank at £629.62 so laying 1.75% on the first so £11.02 lay on the first

    14.50 Lingfield Herm – Put my lay in at 3.05 much lower than current price 5.06 so will let this run inplay. Herm tends to be a front runner so I am hoping he is leading or contesting early so will hit my lay and then fade. SP 6.6 so cancelled bet NO BET- lost anyway but was out of the range – we move on….

    15.25 Lingfield Cliffs of Dover – my lay at 1.69 was taken this morning SP was 1.51 so not a good entry. Especially as the horse wins. Loss at SP -£4.54

    16.20 Limerick Goodthynemilan £8.82 layed at 2.68 40 mins before the off waiting to be matched or will leave it to run inplay……went off at 3.41…..matched…and loses Profit £8.38

    16.55 Lingfield Miniature Daffodil £8.97 lay waiting to be matched at 3.3 Sp was 4.38 and loses Profit £8.53

    Day Four Review

    Disastrous day.

    14.25 Huntingdon Skint – won at SP of 5.25 I layed at 3.9 but still!
    16.35 Southwell Ruler of The Nile – Lost so profit of £8.08
    17.45 Wolves Bernies Boy – Second winner of the day and at SP of 5.5
    18.15 Wolves Sandytown SP was over 6 and then a non runner

    Loss on day of £65.18
    P/L now at -£72.81

    Not a good day at all and worst run I have had so still very optimistic I can turn this around, sorry if you have followed today but the long term stats back up my strategy and hope to get back on track tomorrow.

    13.55 Sedgefield Lostnfound Finished 2nd but SP was 9 so no bet

    16.35 Sedgefield Eastview Boy £9.13 layed here at SP of 5.03 – I was late coming to the screen so didn’t get in under SP.
    Was optimistic here as Take a Break had been well backed into favouritism. However, Eastview Boy won the race and a bad Loss of £37.43

    16.50 Cheltenham Jury Duty Lay in £8.47 at SP of 5.5
    Profit £8.47

    Day 2 Review

    Just one lay today as Stratford was called off. I work during the week so cannot watch the races.
    16.20 Plumpton General Girling I put in my lay at 3.95 hoping to get matched before the off but as in this case in play. SP was 4.73. Hope I get matched but perhaps a bit greedy. Let’s see…..matched..hope it goes on to lose now………The Lion Dancer wins…watching the odds was nervy as we went to around 2 or may be less but we win!

    Profit £8.53 (after 5%)

    Total profit now £21.62

    Day Two Lay Selections

    16.00 Stratford Lake Field
    16.20 Plumpton General Girling

    Lay 1.75% of bank

    £500 bank is now at £513.23 so I will be laying £8.98 on Lake Field
    I will put in a lay 6 ticks lower than current lay price and then closer to the off will see if it has been matched. If it has drifted I will move my lay again within 6 point sof the lay price and leave it to run in play.

    Remember any horse that goes to over 6 before the off is a no bet, todays wont’ be that high though.

    Day One Review

    Phew! Was desperate to get off with a loser in the first race. Ballyvic Boro seemed to be going well but faded as I had expected. BF SP was 2.7 but hopefully you got matched at least a few ticks less. I actually got 2.1 late last night. Came in very short odds in play.
    I will work on my bank of £500 and laying 1.75%
    Profit at SP £8.31 after Betfair 5%.

    Race two with odds on favourite Piton Pete going off at 1.39 was a big ask here but was not fluent jumping and I thought he might lose. However, with no other real competition got there when he needed to. Not very convincing though.
    Loss -£3.47

    Selection three Master Of Finance at 1505
    I got matched at 3.7 as the market fluctuated up and then came back down again before drifting again to 4.5 at the off. Was looking good until he nosed the floor and got some sharp reminders. He look threatening again but his race was soon over.
    Profit £8.39

    Profit for day after commission £13.23

    Will post tomorrows selections by 10am Monday, got a few on the short list just need to finalise those.

    Day One Lay Tips for Sunday 10 March

    Market Rasen 2.00 Ballyvic Boro
    3.05 Master Of Finance
    Warwick 3.55 Garmain

    Important rules
    Any selections that sets off higher than 6 on Betfair is a NO BET
    After 11am at the earliest or ideally within an hour before the start of the race put in a lay at 6 ticks under the current lay price.

    Personally my highest lay is 4.5 – never higher – if it doesn’t get matched before the start or in play then I move on. So if the horse is 5.4 before the off I will put my lay in at my maximum risk at 4.5.

    I am using an aggressive staking method my starting bank is £500 and I will be staking 1.75% of the bank on each bet and adjusting stakes after each result. SO my first lay on Ballyvic Boro will be £8.75. Forecast odds are 2.74 so potential loss is £15.23. Decide what bank you are going to use. I recommend putting in a lay at 2.62 (or six ticks lower than the betfair lay odds after 11am or preferably within an hour of the race. Set the lay to run in play in case we are not matched before the start. We will miss some bets doing this but when we do hit a winner we will have layed under bsp. This will benefit us in the long run.

    Less risk adverse with £500 starting bank would be to risk just 1.75% of bank each bet so you would risk £8.75 so lay amount would £5.02.

    I will record bets at BSP and remember cancel the bet if the price is higher than 6.
