Lay The Field – Betfair Trading Strategy eBook

Well after a much bigger delay than I promised many of you (apologies again), my Laying The Field eBook is finally ready for readers to purchase and download.

Laying The Field eBookThis was a tricky one to produce because only when I started writing it did I realise how many different versions and tweaks I have used to hone this strategy into something I could have real confidence in, and it was quite a few years ago when I did most of this tweaking and testing.

The process of writing this was therefore very much a back to basics exercise, tracking my progress since first discovering the method through months of research and testing, and finally coming up with an exhaustive list of all the many variables affecting the method’s strike rate.

I expected it to be easy to write this, after all, the method is extremely simple in theory, and actually pretty darn simple in practice too. But I soon realised there are a lot of things I take for granted. I wouldn’t call it “intuition” as it’s not that at all, but it seemed like it at first, until I unpicked what I was doing with a fine-tooth comb and starting jotting down all my glances at various websites, data sets, race types and all sorts of other things I was previously doing mostly without any conscious thought involved at all.

As explained in my “Lay The Field” article, here are some of the biggest benefits of this method which, as you can see, make it about the best-suited horse racing strategy for novice traders, (but it’s perfectly suitable to more experienced traders too)…


Numerous Opportunities Every Day

With horse racing taking place nearly every single day of the year with several meetings per day, there is no shortage of trades virtually 365 days a year.


No Exits

Unlike nearly every single other method you can find, there are no exits to be taken with this method. The difference this makes in practice, especially for novice traders, is frankly enormous. No worries about holding your “nerve” or avoiding being too greedy, or not taking enough profit etcetera. Your trades take care of themselves once they are placed, that’s all there is to do, you just check your results later with no chance to sabotage them via emotional issues like fear and greed.


No Software Needed

Unlike most horse racing trading methods, this method does not require Betfair trading software. This is a huge benefit for many beginners as software carries with it a large cost, not in money terms (as you can get trading software for pennies these days) but in terms of the learning curve. It takes a fair while to get comfortable and confident with trading software the first time you try using it, and obviously before actually trading real money with it, you must have confidence in what you are doing. The lay all method can be used to great effect with nothing more than your Betfair browser.


Suits Full-Timers

Also unlike most, if not all, horse racing methods, this method can be done by people who work 9-5. You don’t even need to be near a computer all day during the race meetings. You can place your orders the night before, and check them the next day after you get home from work. This is a great feature of the LTF method, one which allows first time newbie traders to have a go easily without disturbing their normal day job or other daily commitments.

I am extremely hesitant to use the word “easy”, but if I was asked (as I have been!) to pick a method which is the “easiest” to learn, this is the one I say every time. Everything requires some learning, and this is of course no different. But compared to just about any other trading strategy I know of, they don’t come much easier than this one. Don’t read that as a “you will be rich tomorrow” statement, just read it as a “If you want to try trading the horse racing markets, start here” statement 🙂



As you can see, this Betfair trading strategy has some significant advantages over most other methods, particularly those for use in the horse racing markets. For anyone looking for a method to introduce them to horse racing trading, with most of the emotional and psychological risks removed, without any need for trading software, and without tricky decisions to make during a trade, no other method can even compete with this one.
