Professional gambler Dean has decided to share his horseracing selections with a view to starting up a fully fledged service – let’s see how they do.
Here’s what Dean has to say:
“My name is Dean. I am an ex accountant and professional gambler. I have received various money making proposals from you and I wondered if you and your customers would be interested in how I make money from betting.
I have been betting for many years and initially I was the typical mug punter however it didn’t take me long to put my analytical skills to good use to find an edge.
Horse racing is and has always been a huge passion of mine and I spend a great many hours studying form to arrive at my daily selections.
When I tell you that I have provided in excess of 1000 points profit at Betfair SP since June last year betting just 1pt each way on my selections you will understand why I think I have something to offer.
I want to make it clear at this stage that I do not want to sell the goose that lays the golden egg. My method will remain private so only the selections that I put my own money on every day will be available.
Patience and discipline are what let almost all bettors, gamblers, sports investors down. I don’t think I am anything special, my longest losing run was 35 in the win market, I lost 70 points in January 2012 yet have still racked up over 1000 points profit in nine months.
A losing streak of 35 would kill most people stone dead and put them off for life but because I have confidence in my ability, because I know what I am doing it’s all part of earning a crust in this industry.
I can provide my selections the evening before racing meaning even people who have no access to the internet during working hours can participate. I think my selections would also work well with a betting bot as I can provide a daily import for people who wish to use one to save time.”
I’ll post the results here, while Dean will post his selections in the comments section below.

I’m going to leave the updates here, though Dean may continue to post selections below. I’m afraid that the loss has simply been too high for this to be considered viable at present. Betting is all about the long term but this would have broken even a substantial bank in the testing period to date.
It is important to note that the results above were recorded to industry SP, so they would be slightly better if recorded to Betfair SP. Still not good enough however.
12 week trial total: -£1394.47 (-139.447 points)
