Cudworth’s Racing Lays – Full Review
The idea of betting on horses to lose has something quite seductive about it.
As any gambler knows, finding winners on a consistent basis is tough. All manner of things can happen in a horse race to derail the chances of a good sort.
But we’ve all seen horses who we thought “that one can’t possibly win”.
It’s either completely out of form, running in conditions that aren’t suitable or is simply outclassed.
So you would think laying horses would be the ideal way to make some easy cash.
But sadly it isn’t quite as easy as it seems.
You can have a long run of winning bets and everything seems rosy – but then you hit a loser and it wipes out a substantial portion of your bank.
Over the years we’ve seen quite a few laying systems but sadly none of them have managed to make a consistent profit.
So we were interested to come across Cudworth’s Racing Lays, a laying tipster from the Betting Gods stable who showed quite a bit of potential prior to our trial.
And after completing a three month trial I am pleased to say we were not disappointed.
A profit of 22 points during the trial is decent for lay betting and the strike rate was an impressive 83%.
Here is the profit graph for the trial:
A big spike early on, but after that it was quite nice and steady bank growth.
The return on investment was also notably high for a laying system at 17%, which is well above what you would expect with a strike rate as high as 83%.
Most of the lays were at tolerable odds as well, with the majority being in the range of 2.0 to 5.0, although there was one loser at 11.33 which hit the bank a bit.
Ease of use: There are just 1-2 tips per day, which makes this is a nice relaxed service to follow. All bets can be placed at Betfair SP which makes things really straightforward.
Availability of prices: The good thing is that all results are recorded at Betfair SP, so you know you can match their results.
Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 83%, which is excellent and means you will be winning most of your bets. There has even been a 26-bet winning streak in the past!
Advised Betting Bank: There is no betting bank advised but we used a 75 point bank for the trial, given most of the lays are up to around a BSP of 6.0. However, be warned that a run of losers could hit the bank quite hard.
Subscription costs: You can get a 30 day trial for just £1, which is a great way of testing things out. If you want to carry on after that, the costs are £29.95 per month or £69.95 per quarter.
OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED
Despite seeming like an easy way to make money, lay betting is actually much harder than most people think and there aren’t too many successful laying tipsters around.
So we are pleased to have completed a successful trial of Cudworth’s Racing Lays, a service that delivered solid profits at a great strike rate of 83% and a very decent ROI of 17%.
It is a straightforward service to follow, with just one or two bets per day and all bets can be placed at Betair SP – so just “set and forget.”
As ever, we will continue to monitor things and update the results periodically.
For the time being though, this one gets a recommended rating and if you like the idea of betting on horses to lose, Cudworth’s Racing Lays looks like one of the best options we have encountered so far.
Cudworth’s Racing Lays – Results Update
12th April 2016
Things have picked up nicely for Cudworth’s Racing Lays since our last update back in February.
They have made 15 points profit since our last update, meaning they are 11 points up overall.
There’s something very appealing about laying horses and having so many winning bets. Profits are of course the most important thing, so we will if things can continue in a positive fashion for Cudworth’s Racing Lays over the remainder of the trial.
Cudworth’s Racing Lays – Results Update
25th February 2016
It has been a bit of a slow start to our trial of Cudworth’s Racing Lays, a horse racing tipster who lays selective bets each day.
So far we are 4 points down, which isn’t too bad by any means but isn’t quite up to the standards set coming into the trial.
Sometimes the losing lays can hit the bank quite hard, as on 6th February when 7.5 points were lost on one lay – ouch.
But then you get nice long winning runs of 6 or 7 in a row, which rebuilds things quickly.
An interesting service so far in any event and one we will be intrigued to see how it gets on over the trial as a whole.
Cudworth’s Racing Lays – New Review
2nd February 2016
Today we are commencing just our second trial of a laying service here at Honest Betting Reviews.
The service in question is Cudworth’s Racing Lays from the Betting Gods stable.
Laying somehow has great appeal to us punters. After previously only ever being able to back horses to win, there is something instinctively appealing about being able to bet on horses to lose.
After all, there must be plenty of stinkers out there, who don’t have the right conditions for them or are just plain rubbish, right?
And the old saying that you never see a poor bookie must be because they are laying the field.
Well sadly laying isn’t quite as easy as it at first seems. When you lay on the exchanges you don’t get the same value as the bookies as they have their treasured overround and you have to pay commission.
Still, with dedicated study (or some inside info) it should still in theory be possible to pick horses to lose and make some tasty profits from lay betting.
So it is with such hopes that we turn to Cudworth’s Racing Lays.
This is a relatively new service, having only been tipping since September 2015 but in that has amassed over 60 points profit, which is no mean feat when laying.
Those results have been achieved with a strike rate over 80%, so we are looking at most bets winning here, which is always a nice feeling.
We are looking forward to the change of approach to laying here and this should prove an interesting trial.
Updates will appear here soon.
