Second Class Racing – Results Update

Horse racing laying service Second Class Racing has bounced back nicely lately, with a profit of 15 points made to advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 25 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

The rules of the service are to lay at the advised price (always between 3.0 and 6.0) and not to take a larger price. If a lay isn’t matched at the advised price, then it’s a no bet. 

There is no trading – it’s a “set and forget” approach. 

Whilst they do NOT advise following the service at Betfair SP, we have also tracked the results at BSP just out of interest. 

Laying all the selections at BSP would have given a profit of 21 points since our last update and a profit of 19 points for our trial overall thus far.

Laying only those selections with a BSP below 6 (Mel’s cut-off point for a selection), would have given a profit of 30 points so far.

Second Class Racing – Results Update

12th February 2024

It’s been a tough time lately for horse racing laying service Second Class Racing, with a loss of 33 points made to advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 10 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

The rules of the service are to lay at the advised price (always between 3.0 and 6.0) and not to take a larger price. If a lay isn’t matched at the advised price, then it’s a no bet. 

There is no trading – it’s a “set and forget” approach. 

Whilst they do NOT advise following the service at Betfair SP, we have also tracked the results at BSP just out of interest. 

Laying all the selections at BSP would have given a loss of 36 points since our last update and a loss of 2 points for our trial overall thus far.

Laying only those selections with a BSP below 6 (Mel’s cut-off point for a selection), would have given a profit of 22 points so far.

Just a note to say I’ve seen a few comments in the group chat about the recent losses and whilst it’s fully understandable to be disappointed, it’s important to take a long-term view of the results. 

That’s why we always advise allowing for the full review to be completed before deciding whether to sign up to a service or not.

We tend to run reviews for at least six months these days – and often much longer – which allows us to get a really good look at a service and a big sample size of bets. 

Reviewing over these extended periods allows us to cut out the “noise” of short-term fluctuations and see whether a service has a clear edge over the market. 

So we have to give this one a little more time to play out before reaching a verdict. The recent losses have been tough to take but let’s see where they end up at by the end of the review.

Laying only those selections with a BSP below 6.0 (Mel’s cut-off point for a selection), would have given a profit of 37 points so far.

Whichever way you’d been following the selections then would have given a very healthy profit since our trial started.

Second Class Racing – Results Update

11th December 2023

It’s been a strong start to our trial of horse racing laying service Second Class Racing, with a profit of 27 points made to advised prices so far after six weeks. 

You can view full results here.

The rules of the service are to lay at the advised price (always between 3.0 and 6.0) and not to take a larger price. If a lay isn’t matched at the advised price, then it’s a no bet. 

There is no trading – it’s a “set and forget” approach. 

Whilst they do NOT advise following the service at Betfair SP, we have also tracked the results at BSP just out of interest. 

Laying all the selections at BSP would have given a profit of 17 points for our trial to date.

However, laying only those selections with a BSP below 6.0 (Mel’s cut-off point for a selection), would have given a profit of 29 points so far.

So will be interesting to see if that’s maintained during the rest of the review.

Second Class Racing – New Review

3rd November 2023

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing service called Second Class Racing

This comes from the same guy (Mel Gee) behind another service we are currently reviewing – First Class Racing. 

Whilst that service focuses on selective back bets in top class racing, Second Class Racing kind of does the opposite – it provides lay bets at a much higher volume (up to 12 bets per day) and in various classes of racing, not just top class racing. 

The results of the service so far have been very impressive:-

After 24 weeks the selections have:

  • Made £1,421 to 10 stakes…
  • Made an average of £59 per week…
  • Made a Return On Investment (ROI) of 17.5%
  • And achieved a strike rate of 85% (691 bets won out of 811).

So pretty strong results there, although it is still early days.

To find the selections Mel looks at Betfair between around 11 and 12 in the morning UK time and then posts the lay bets on Telegram with a screenshot of the lays placed on Betfair. 

Not all of the selections will be matched and Mel’s advice is not to go chasing the prices – if a selection isn’t matched at the advised price, he says to just leave it. 

All prices are between 3.0 and 6.0 so there is no risk of one unsuccessful lay wiping out your whole bank at huge odds as is the case with some laying services.

It is a “set and forget” strategy so once you have entered the lay bet on Betfair that is it – there is nothing further to do like trading or monitoring the market, your work for the day is done. 

So a very novel approach here and it will be interesting to see how this one fares under a live trial. It would be good to have a profitable laying service as they have been few and far between over the years.  

We will kick things off today then and will report back here soon on how it’s all going.

In the meantime you can check out Second Class Racing for yourself here.
