In my last update you heard about how my bank for The Betting Mastermind had been steadily building and had hit a new high of 64.53 points.
Unfortunately, things have not been going so well since then and all of the profit made has dwindled away.
The second month of my trial saw a loss of 13.63 points which adds up to -6.00 points in total for the whole trial.
Tipster Stuart acknowledged the losing month in a recent email but says it is his first losing month from 10, so there is no need to panic at this stage. He has put it down to a few contributing factors including the poor weather and the changeover to the flat season.

For new members to the service this is a frustrating time, but fingers crossed this is the bad run over and done with for a while and the service can begin to recover.
I will be back next month with another update, but in the meantime you can find out more about The Betting Mastermind here.
Update: 13th March 2018
It’s been a positive start to my trial of The Betting Mastermind with a 15% growth to my allocated bank of 50 points in the first month.
I have been staking to win 1 point per lay, which works out as 1.05 points to cover 5% Betfair commission. This has given me a profit of 7.63 points at the end of month one with an ROI of 5.5%.
There were 49 qualifying lay bets for the V2 strategy and 37 of them failed to place, which is a strike rate of 75.5%.
Unfortunately, I have not found a way to automate betting on these selections with the V2 filters, so I have been placing my lays manually 5 minutes before each race. Thankfully there aren’t too many bets so it is manageable.

The Betting Mastermind seems to be quite a steady service to follow going by what I have seen so far. My bank has gradually been increasing and although there was a dip towards the end of the month, there was a swift recovery.
As of yesterday my bank hit a new high of 64.53 points… but you’ll have to wait for my next update to see that 🙂

Introduction: 10th February 2018
I’ve been inundated with emails from people wanting me to test their betting systems, but I only have so much time alongside my day job so for the moment I am having to be a bit picky.
One of the systems that has caught my eye is The Betting Mastermind which is a horse racing laying service with a difference. The difference is, this service focuses on laying the horses to place in the race rather than laying them to win.
Stuart Neill, founder of the service, has developed his strategy over many years. He updates his results regularly to the website and since June 2017 he has reported a profit of £6,595 to £100 lay stakes using V2, the “strategy of choice”.
I have been provided with a user guide which explains how the two main strategies work, although V1 isn’t recommended.
The filters are simple, but it seems that each race must be monitored just before the off in order to make sure the selections are valid.
It may be possible to get a bot working, so this is something that I will look into.
I will begin testing the V2 strategy using a 50 point bank as recommended. Stuart advises recalculating stakes each month providing it has been a winning month, to allow the bank to grow quicker as the profits are coming in.
Check back next month for my first results and in the meantime you can find out more about The Betting Mastermind here.
