I know that many of you are patiently awaiting the Monthly Report.

I had hoped to publish it yesterday but…

There were three vital things that I needed to mention in the monthly report and…

They have proven far harder to implement than I ever expected (and I was expecting the worst!)

However, they have now been implemented now and so I should be able to publish the Monthly Report tomorrow

I have also added the Saddle Cloth Number (in brackets) after the horse’s name.

March 18, 2014 – Gambling or Investing? – Part two

Use Focus Ratings to win more money and make more profits from British and Irish Horse Racing.  The only horse racing system youll ever need.Just over a month ago I published an article about whether we are Gambling or Investing? in which I drew some comparisons between “real” investors/traders who generally have a massive backup staff and are able to survive day to day difficulties, as a result.

And, in that article, I suggested that many people might have the wrong idea about what corporate investors do for a living (believe me, I’ve been there – it’s not all screaming “Buy, buy, buy” or “Sell, sell sell” – it’s about a million billion times more complex than that!)

So, in this article I want to propose some things that we can do to level the playing field and offer the same level of professionalism as the big boys are able to.

This is important whether we are striving to earn a portion of our income from betting on horses or whether we are offering our own analysis and tips to others (either on a free or paid basis.)

It might even propose some of the questions that we should be asking of people who we are paying for their advisories or other services.

“Where do you draw the line between gambling and investing?”

And, to answer this question isn’t quite as simple as it might seem; many people have the wrong idea about what corporate investors do for a living (believe me, I’ve been there – it’s not all screaming “Buy, buy, buy” or “Sell, sell sell” – it’s about a million billion times more complex than that!)

So, I anticipate that this will be the first in a series of articles about the crossover between Gambling and Investing.

The only horse racing system youll ever need.The Kelly Criterion is a formula used to determine the optimal size of a series of bets.

Generally, in gambling scenarios (and some investing scenarios), the Kelly strategy will do better than any other strategy in the long run.

However, personal attitude to risk can conflict with Kelly and even Kelly supporters usually choose to bet a fixed fraction of the amount recommended by Kelly in order to reduce volatility, or to protect against calculation errors.

“It’s all on.

The lot.

Every pound left in the account £2,644 on Warrington Wolves.

Why am I doing this?

Could they lose?

Can you believe I was calm?”

This is what Iain Fletcher’s one year as a ‘pro’ on the betting exchanges had come down to – 80 minutes on a mid table Rugby League game.

The author of the acclaimed On Tilt, was subbed GBP5000 by leading matched betting company, Betfair and given 12 months to turn a profit and learn the intricacies of the new online betting phenomenon.

Game, Set & Matched is the fascinating diary of his efforts to master Matched Betting.

Along the way he details how to bet successfully on the exchanges on all types of sports from horse racing to soccer and rugby to golf.

The only horse racing system youll ever need.Pretty much panned by the critics (although a few found it cute), the Outside Bet was hyped as a cross between The Long Good Friday and The Full Monty.

It was neither but that doesn’t mean it is a bad film.

This is what the Wikipedia entry says of it….

“It is 1985. Thatcher is in power, Sade is on the radio, and the print workers have gone on strike. But nothing, not even a scale eight earthquake can put a dampener on a group of close friends that meet every Sunday in their regular South London pub for a pint and free flowing banter of the highest order. Set against the backdrop of a changing way of life-as Rupert Murdoch moves the printing of his newspapers from Fleet Street to Wapping-this is a tale of seven firm friends, who embark on a unique journey that eventually leads them to gamble all of their savings and redundancy money on a single race.”
