Welcome to our Day B4 review - A horse racing betting system from former Financial Times author Val Harrison.

Pros

  • Easy to use and understand with a well-written manual, even for a novice
  • Manual comes in the form of a physical book
  • Only 10 mins set up time the night before (set and forget)
  • Cons

  • Strike rate nowhere near the 70% suggested (we only managed 48% & 47% on our winning cycles)
  • Cost of the product is £149 (but it does come with a money back guarantee if after 90 days you've not made £500)
  • Barry has reported back with his latest results from testing the Day B4 horse racing betting system and he is now ready to give his final verdict. He has completed a total of six cycles of the system; two winning and four losing, and has finished with a loss of £49.33 using the advised recovery staking plan.

    The system was developed by professional trader Val Harrison and it comes in the form of a physical book, which does give it that feel of high quality. It costs a one-off payment of £149 and comes with a 90 day guarantee, so if you haven't made a profit of £500 in 90 days you are entitled to a full refund.

    The idea is to find horse racing selections the night before the races based on the criteria detailed in the guide. The system is explained in great detail and even as a complete betting novice it would be easy to learn. It comes with advice on staking, including tables that tell you exactly how much to stake depending on what starting bank size you have decided to use.

    The aim is to make a profit of £500 in each cycle or stop when you hit a loss of £250, so each winning cycle covers two losing ones.

    Breakdown of profit/loss for each cycle (recovery staking plan):

    • Cycle 1: -£257.87 
    • Cycle 2: +£501.95
    • Cycle 3 : -£319.33
    • Cycle 4: -£246.95
    • minus
      Cycle 5: -£261.03
    • minus
      Cycle 6: +£533.90
    • Total: -£49.33

    As you can see in the breakdown above, Barry went quite a way past the stop loss in cycle 3 and going forward he made sure not to place any bets that would take him way over the limit - lesson learned! Following this rule we could potentially have finished with small profit rather than a loss, but hindset is a wonderful thing.

    Here are the results for his sixth and final round of betting:

    Summary

    Barry has decided that a neutral rating is fair for this product, stating "As far as betting systems go, I don’t think that Day B4 Betting System is a bad product. I believe that there is money to be made here and Val Harrison seems to be very genuine".

    Whilst we agree with his rating, we just don't know whether this system is capable of making a long-term profit. With the profit guarantee it is worth a punt, but without that it would just be too high of a risk.


    Day B4 Review: Update Five

    26th October 2017

    We're back with another update to our Day B4 review and it's been a longer cycle this time with 50 bets as opposed the 9 Barry placed in the last round. Things just aren't going to plan with this system and there have now been 4 out of 5 losing rounds. 

    The total loss now stands at -£499.33 using flat stakes and -£583.23 using the advised recovery staking plan.

    Despite the poor results, Barry isn't quite ready to give up on the system just yet as one winning cycle could see him almost back to where he started. Perhaps he has just been unfortunate, or maybe the system just doesn't work. Either way, he has decided to continue for another round to see what happens.

    Day B4 Review: Update Four

    14th October 2017

    It's been just three days and we've completed another cycle of Day B4 with a loss of £167.80 using flat stakes and £246.95 using the recommended recovery plan.

    The new set up where Barry is calculating whether the next stake could take him over the £250 limit worked well, as one more bet would have given him a much bigger loss.

    Day B4 Review: Update Three

    11th October 2017

    Barry has completed the third cycle of Day B4 and unfortunately it's another losing one, ending with a loss of £319.33 using the recovery staking plan. A poor day yesterday meant that he went quite a way over the £250 loss mark.

    After three betting cycles we are now at an overall loss of £179.50 using flat stakes and a loss of £75.25 using the recovery stakes.

    Going forward Barry is going to calculate how much the total stake each day will be and he will miss out any bets that could potentially take him over the £250 stop mark.

    Day B4 Review: Update Two

    8th October 2017

    We're back with our results from round two of our review of Day B4 and it's better news this time. Barry has reported back with a winning cycle giving a profit of £501.95 using the recovery staking plan, which gives him an overall profit of £244.08 taking the loss from the first cycle into account.

    The flat staking plan is showing a small overall profit of £38.76 after making a profit of £247.10 in round two. 

    Barry has recorded the total amount that he has staked for each plan during this round, so that we are able to work out the return on investment figures. Both sets showed a healthy return during this sequence, with the flat staking plan showing an ROI of 15.2% and the recovery staking plan an ROI of 23.5%.

    We're pleased to see a profit this time, but we're still none the wiser as to whether this could be a profitable system in the long term. Barry is going to continue testing and will get back to us again at the end of the next sequence.


    Day B4 Review: Update One

    22nd September 2017

    It's taken longer than expected, but Barry has finally completed the first round of betting for our Day B4 review. Frustratingly, he did actually hit the target profit of £500 on the 5th September but he still had to wait for the 2nd bet of the day to settle. This ended up being a losing bet which meant the profit dipped back under £500 and after this it continued to fall after a bad run.

    So the first round has ended with a loss £257.87 using the recovery staking plan and a loss of £208.34 using the flat staking plan.

    Day B4 Review: Introduction

    16th August 2017

    Day B4 is a horse racing betting system put together by professional trader and former Financial Times writer Val Harrison. Val claims it's his "simplest and most accessible money-making method ever", so we are intrigued to find out what it is all about.

    Our guest reviewer Barry is carrying out this review and he has already received the system and started testing on the 31st July. 

    It came in the form of a physical book, rather than the usual e-book that you usually get with betting systems, which does give it a good quality feel. As the saying goes though, don't judge a book by it's cover - the most important thing is, does it work?

    How does the system work?

    As the name suggests, the system is based around finding horse racing selections the night before the race and placing your bet on any selection that meets the given criteria.

    The 35 page manual goes into great detail on how the system works (i.e. how to identify potential selections and how to place the bets) and it is well written and easy to understand even if you have no prior knowledge of horse racing or betting.

    Obviously we can't go into to too many details as it would give the system away, but here is what the author says:

    • The system aims to bank £500 every 4–5 weeks
    • Checking races and placing bets only needs to be done once per day
    • All you need is an internet connection and at least four bookmaker accounts (BOG preferable but not essential). The manual shows you how to open accounts if you don't already have them.
    • It works with both bookies and betting exchanges
    • Suitable for both beginners and experienced bettors 
    • No tips to follow, you research your own bets
    • Banking the profits and restarting the sequence means that you can keep bets small and keep off the bookies' radar
    Is there a staking plan?

    Val uses a recovery based staking plan, but the system can also be used with level stakes. At the back of the manual there are three staking tables designed for starting banks of £50, £100 and £250 and there are two plans for each bank, level or accumulative.

    He doesn't recommend increasing stakes any further than those shown in the book as it may draw attention to your bookie accounts and get them closed.

    Barry is starting with a £250 bank and he is recording results for both level and accumulative staking plans.

    How much does it cost?

    The system costs a one-off payment of £149 and comes with a 90 day guarantee, so that if you haven't made at least £500 profit within 90 days you can request a refund.


    Due to the nature of this system, we will post an update when we have reached the end of a betting sequence rather than on a monthly basis.

    We look forward to seeing how Barry gets on with this system and hopefully we will be reporting back soon with some good news.

    Pros

  • Easy to use and understand with a well-written manual, even for a novice
  • Manual comes in the form of a physical book
  • Only 10 mins set up time the night before (set and forget)
  • Cons

  • Strike rate nowhere near the 70% suggested (we only managed 48% & 47% on our winning cycles)
  • Cost of the product is £149 (but it does come with a money back guarantee if after 90 days you’ve not made £500)
