“Ne’er cast a clout until May is out”, goes the old saying. I’m not sure what a clout is (I think it may be a form of ladies undergarment?) so I can be sure I haven’t cast one and good job too because as I sit here writing this, the temperature has dropped and it looks like rain!
Anyway, it is the first day of June tomorrow and that means the first day of my review of the Evening Value Service (hereafter referred to as EVS). I’ve been busy today reading up on the service so I thought today I would set the scene.
The selections I receive by email will include not only the necessary information such as race time, selection etc but the advised price in decimal format and the details of the bookmaker(s) offering that price according to oddschecker.com and so the first thing to remember is that “5.00″ equals 4/1 etc.
Now getting the advised price (or as near to it as possible) is crucial to the success of the system as the cornerstone of EVS is the value to be found in overpriced selections. So the first mental note I’ve made is, “will those unable or unwilling to open up a large number of bookmaker accounts (Kieran, the author of EVS, lists sixteen) still be able to find value in the service, bearing in mind Kieran claims a strike rate of 15 to 20% and quotes a longest losing run of 32?” It should be borne in mind, however, that we are promised an average of ten selections daily.
I intend, therefore, to run two banks of 100 units each. (The official advice is 1 unit level stakes from a hundred point bank). I shall run one bank using the best obtainable prices from oddschecker.com at the time I get the email and the other I shall use with a bot on simulation mode which will be placing the bets on Betfair at 5 minutes and 30 seconds before the off. (I don’t know if it’s my imagination but whenever I place win bets on Betfair I usually find there is a slight uplift in prices around that time).
So for now that’s it. I’ll be back Saturday with the stats from tomorrow evening … and if I find out myself I may even tell you what a “clout” is!
Evening Value Service – The Final Verdict
Firstly the statistics:
Excluding non-runners there were 231 selections; this is an average of 7.7 per day. There were 29 winners which equates to a strike rate of 12.55%. The average price of winning selections was 5.99 and the longest losing run was 23 selections. The bank finished down by 26.87 points (26.87%).
So how does this compare to the claims made by the the service’s architect, Kieran Ward? Well, Kieran stated at the outset that long losing runs were to be expected and quoted 32 as his longest. So we should not have been surprised by the LLR of 23 that we experienced. He did, however, predict the average strike rate to be between 15 & 20% whereas we recorded 12.55%. And he did, of course, predict a profit and not a loss of nearly 27% of bank.
So do we simply consign this service to the drawer marked “Failed Systems/Services”? Well, as with all things in life it’s not that simple.
All punters who believe “value” is the key will tell you that long losing runs are inevitable with value-seeking systems but are more than compensated for in the long run. ALL pro-punters will tell you, quite rightly, that there is no such thing as the “holy grail” and all systems/services have losing weeks and/or months and that it is the long game that we’re playing. But there is another factor that needs to be considered here which could well explain the service’s poor performance in this trial. You’ve guessed it … the weather!
I doubt that it was a coincidence that today Kieran published on his blog a short piece by “John Mac – Professional Punter and Tipster”. In his piece John Mac said this, “The results come in and the head starts shaking in disbelief. Atrocious weather combined with desperate ground has created a minefield for punters some of whom may turn their backs on the game once and for all.” He also pointed out that “Probably one of the most feared and revered tipsters of recent years, ATRs much heralded Hugh Taylor, as recently as yesterday managed to hit his 46th consecutive losing tip.”
There’s no doubt in my mind that the 7.7 selections we received each day, rather than the 10 we were promised, was down to abandoned meetings and decimated fields. Were the losses and the low strike rate down to the weather as well? Well, if you’ve blamed the weather (as I have) for your own poor performances this month then, of course, we must extend the same courtesy to Kieran Ward and believe that it is a real possibility.
So, the final verdict? Well, the only one that makes sense really … an open one. EVS should be given another chance to prove itself at some time in the future. I have to be honest and say that EVS is not for me. But then I would have said that before the review as I do not have the temperament (mentality?) to take long losing runs in my stride. But for those who are subscribing or may do so in the future, let me leave you with another statistic that may give you more confidence, if indeed it is required. Among the 231 selections and aside from the winners, there were another 74 runners that were placed. At average odds of 5.99 it would only have taken 5 of those to have won and the loss would have been eradicated. 6 and above would have seen you in profit. Be lucky.
Saturday 30th June
As this is the last evening review of Evening Value Service it is probably fitting that it ended the same way as so many others. A handful of seconds and thirds but just the one winner from a final 12 selections that only marginally mitigated the losses for the night. I’ll be writing up my final thoughts and report over the next couple of days but here are the evening’s final numbers.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -8pts; Bank closing balance 73.13pts
Friday 29th June
Quite a strange evening really: Eight selections and only two uplaced! Unfortunately though, only one winner and a loss of 3.5 points on the night.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -3.5pts; Bank c/f 81.13pts
Thursday 28th June
For those of us who’ve enjoyed a scorching hot day it’s hard to believe the reports of the terrible weather experienced by large parts of the country. I was sweltering in my home office lining up a solid “bet in running” opportunity at Newcastle when suddenly betting was suspended. Subsequent investigation revealed the story of how racing (and apparently some parts of the infrastructure) at Newcastle had been decimated. The weather was also the cause of there being only one race meeting this evening, and consequentially therefore, only three selections from EVS. The bad news continues as they did not contain a winner and so our bank was depleted by a further 3 points.

Wednesday 27th June
There was always a chance that tonight would be a case of “After the Lord Mayor’s show …” after the brilliant result from yesterday evening. Well, actually it wasn’t that bad – more a case of “Nice try but no cigar”. With no less than 5 seconds from the 11 selections tonight, things could have been so much better than the +0.38 of a point overall profit that came from 2 winners.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +0.38pts; Bank c/f 87.63pts
Tuesday 26th June
As soon as Beat Route crossed the line EVS subscribers were guaranteed a profit on the night. When Billy Blade crossed the line they were guaranteed a 20 point profit and that’s what they got even though amongst the remainder of the 10 selections were 2 seconds and a third.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +20pts; Bank c/f 87.25pts
Monday 25th June
Once again a solitary winner from 10 selections was not sufficient to stop our starting bank dropping another 4.5 points to a new all-time low.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -4.5pts; Bank c/f 67.25pts
Saturday 23rd June
A 10/1 winner added 2 points to our ailing bank tonight. The remaining 8 selections comprised 2 seconds, 1 third and 5 unplaced.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +2pts; Bank c/f 71.75pts
Friday 22nd June
When Harry Buckle traded as low as 1.1 on Betfair (having drawn 4 to 5 lengths clear) I really thought he was going to pull the fat from the fire. Especially as his best oddschecker price at the time the selections were released was 10/1. However, it wasn’t to be and with the only winner of the evening pulling in just 2 points it means the 100 point starting bank has now hit a new low. Tonight there were 12 selections: 1 winner, 2 seconds and the remainder all unplaced.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -9pts; Bank c/f 69.75pts
Thursday 21st June
Unfortunately the EVS couldn’t build on the success of last night as the one winner from the selections this evening could not avoid an overall loss of 6.25 points. There were 11 selections this evening although one became a non-runner, leaving the 1 winner, 2 seconds and a third with the remainder unplaced.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -6.25pts; Bank c/f 78.75pts
Wednesday 20th June
Only seven selections this evening but Kieran managed to find us 2 winners totalling 13.5 points, giving us a nice profit overall this evening of 8.5 points.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +8.5pts; Bank c/f 85pts
Tuesday 19th June
Twelve selections this evening managed to find just 1 winner with three others placed, leaving us down 6 points on the night.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -6pts; Bank c/f 76.5pts
Monday 18th June
Now, before I forget, I’ll not be around tomorrow evening to put the report up so I’ll put both tomorrow’s and Wednesday’s up late Wednesday evening. Anyway, another barren evening this evening with no winners and just 3 seconds from 9 selections resulting in a loss of 9 points.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -9pts; Bank c/f 82.5pts
Saturday 16th June
A rather skinny night’s betting tonight with just the meeting at Lingfield, from which Kieran found us six selections. 1 second, 2 thirds and three unplaced was the final tally which left us down 6 points on the night.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -6pts; Bank c/f 91.5pts
Friday 15th June
A slightly disappointing evening after the events of last night with just the one winner resulting in a loss on the evening of 4.5 points. However, I suspect subscribers to EVS are feeling a touched relieved as the winner was the last runner of the evening which saw 2 seconds, 2 thirds, 5 unplaced and 1 faller preceding it. A bit like seeing your team score an equaliser in the last minute.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -4.5pts; Bank c/f 97.5pts
Thursday 14th June
A good solid evening for the service with 4 winners producing 21.3 points to give a 13.3 points profit for the night which takes the system back into profit for the month so far. The remainder of the twelve selections included 2 seconds and a third.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +13.3pts; Bank c/f 102pts
Wednesday 13th June
A case of deja vue tonight I’m afraid, with events strongly following the pattern of last evening. We had twelve selections that settled as follows: 1 winner, 2 seconds, 1 non-runner and 8 unplaced, resulting in a small loss.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -5pts; Bank c/f 88.7pts
Tuesday 12th June
A largely uneventful evening this evening with just 1 winner and 1 second from ten selections, finishing up with -4.3pts.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -4.3pts; Bank c/f 93.7pts
Monday 11th June
We certainly weren’t short of excitement tonight – we started with a winner, finished with a winner and sandwiched in between were the rest of our seven selections, ALL of which were placed! We finished, therefore, 7.5 points up for the evening. That’s seven selections: 2 winners, 3 seconds and 2 thirds.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +7.5pts; Bank c/f 98pts
Saturday 9th June
A small loss of 3.3 points this evening but how different it could have been with no less than five 2nds including one at 5/1 and one at 10/1, beaten by a neck and a head respectively! In total there were 12 selections this evening producing 2 winners, 5 seconds, 1 third and 4 unplaced.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -3.3pts; Bank c/f 90.5pts
Friday 8th June 2012
Another wet and windy night with plenty of withdrawals. I think I’m beginning to get seasonal adjustment disorder in the summer! Not much to cheer us up either tonight with 12 selections producing 0 winners, 1 second (beaten by a neck), 4 third places and 7 unplaced.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -12pts; Bank c/f 93.8pts
Thursday 7th June 2012
Well, only Kieran (the author of EVS) will know whether the decimated cards and quagmire conditions or clever forward thinking and planning were responsible for a very satisfying evening but, either way, congratulations are surely due.
From eleven selections we had 3 winners, 4 seconds, 3 unplaced and 1 non-runner producing 6.8 points on the night. I should make clear, however, I have taken no account of rule 4 deductions although, without doubt there must have been a few. I also have to confess that due to having to drop my car off at the garage I was not back in time to set the Betfair bot running. However, I think EVS has already proved that holding various bookmaker accounts is an integral part of this system for one very good reason … it boosts the profits! So i think I’ll skip the comparison with Betfair odds from now on.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +6.8pts; Bank c/f 105.8pts
Wednesday 6th June 2012
Only a very skinny couple of meetings this evening so, not surprisingly, just 5 selections from EVS, all losing unfortunately.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -5pts; Bank c/f 99pts
At Betfair prices at bot placement 5mins 30secs before the off: -5pts; Bank c/f 92.64pts
Saturday 2nd June 2012
A much better night for the service tonight with two consecutive winners and so nearly a third. Hathamore and Rathnaroughy obliged at early odds of 14/1 and 10/1 respectively with Mike Towey (7/2) missing out by 3/4 of a length.
In all we had 12 selections tonight that finished as follows: 2 winners, 1 second, 8 unplaced and 1 non-runner.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: +15pts; Bank c/f 104pts
At Betfair prices at bot placement 5mins 30secs before the off: +8.64pts; Bank c/f 97.64pts
Friday 1st June 2012
An unlucky start to the review for EVS with no less than 3 very close seconds out of 6 placed horses but, unfortunately, no winners.
We had 11 selections that finished as follows: 0 winners; 6 placed; 5 unplaced.
At best oddschecker prices on receipt of selections: -11pts; Bank c/f 89pts
At Betfair prices at bot placement 5mins 30secs before the off: -11pts; Bank c/f 89pts
(PS: I still don’t know what a clout is although my wife often promises me one?)
