RaysLays Review

RaysLays Update One

26th August 2017

We have been following the RaysLays over the past month and after 27 selections there has been a loss of 3.95 points at the available odds, using a level 5 point liability per lay. 

Risking 5% of the bank on each lay (recalculated after each bet) would have given us a loss of 4.96 points, so level staking has worked out better for us so far although it is still early days.

The service has been very easy to follow so far with just one set and forget lay per day. We have been able to get better odds than those advised on quite a few occasions by giving the market more time to form, which has given us an extra 2.17 points in comparison.

RaysLays Introduction

19th July 2017

RaysLays is a horse racing lay betting service that originally established in 2012 run by database analyst and programmer Ray Mills. The service used to be part of the Winning More platform, but Ray wanted to take the service in a different direction so he parted and now runs the service on his own website.

​He has been recording horse racing and odds data for many years and has built his own software to analyse the data. For a selection to make the cut it has meet certain criteria based on the horse's previous form or the trainer's record.

During his time tipping for Winning More, Ray achieved some impressive results and trebled the starting bank in the first season. One of his highlights was hitting a run of thirty-two successful lays in succession!

From 2012-2014 he made a profit of £1669.50 to £25 stakes, which works out as 66.78 points profit at an ROI of 4.7%.

The results on his current website start from 2017 and show a profit of £536.44, risking 5% of the bank on each lay, starting with a £1000 bank.

Selections are emailed out each morning at around 10.00am and they are to be placed as lay bets on Betfair.

Ray advises to wait until at least £3000 has been matched on Be​tfair before placing any bets or alternatively the lays can be placed at BSP. If the odds are over 10.00 then the selection is a "no bet" and if the bet had already been placed in the morning and the odds have since drifted over 10.00, then he suggests greening up or trading to leave it as a risk-free bet.

The service is priced at £1.00 for the first two weeks followed by a payment of £29.50 per month.​

Ray states that his system can produce a good long-term profit and takes a slow, steady approach rather than trying to be some kind of get rich quick scheme. 

We would be thrilled to find a profitable horse laying system for Betfair, so we have high hopes for RaysLays.

We will record both level stakes and the above staking system over the next three months and will report back each month with an update of our results.
