Nags To Riches: Live Q & A

| March 26, 2018 | 46 Replies

Return here at 2pm Thursday 29th March for a live Q & A session with Mel Gee, creator of Nags To Riches.

Hi Everybody!!

It’s just before 2 pm so let’s get started

Q.Can we have selections on other days other then Saturday only. Would like selections for the whole week if possible. If not why is it just Saturdays only? What is your betting background? Do you bet on any other sports? How long have you been doing this for?

Hi Raj

The selections for NTR are based on long term trends, minimum 10 years, form and stats.The better class races are Saturday’s unless there is a Festival or a major meeting, in which case there will be midweek selections. I am a self taught professional bettor, almost 50 years. I major on horse racing. Good luck to us both. Mel

Hi Mel

I joined 8th February. You have been excellent so far. No complaints.

The only question I have is that it would be good if you could possibly manage to provide a further selection  in addition to your usual Saturday. I am not keen on too many selections but perhaps an additional day would be welcome. I do appreciate that this may not fit in with your very expert system. I am coming up to 74 and retired, so any additional income would be welcome! Thank you very much for your kind attention.

Regards.

Stewart

Hi Stewart, It’s fantastic to read when you say your experience with me so far to be excellent – thank you!

The Nags To Riches service is based on Trends, Form and Stats. This is usually around better Class races which appear normally

on Saturdays. You will have received mid week selections for Cheltenham as this is a Class event. The better class race meetings

during the week will be covered during the year. We have a lot to look forward to!

Q.The other day I bought a year’s subscription to “5 Minute Bets” and asked Agora who they recommended I should have a Betting account with as I live in SPAIN but nobody bothered to respond so today I sent them a stroppy reminder and somebody advised that I should ask YOU, not them …..!   So, my question is, will it be possible to do this from here and if so who do I get an account with?  And how!  I need to know fairly quickly please and if it will  not be convenient to do this from here then I will simply ask for a refund of the huge (to me!) £97.80 …

Please advise.   Thank you.

Hi Bar Hill

Many Brits live and holiday abroad in Spain. I am told that if you use  https://www.tunnelbear.com

it will allow you to join the internet as if in a different country from Spain, and you can then access the

Bookmaker sites. Betting accounts such as Ladbrokes, William Hill would be good accounts to start with,

and if you need guidance on how to bet, they will assist you.

Good luck to us both

Q.

Hi mel

I am thinking about subscribing to your 5 minute saturday morning offer. I do not know anything about horse raceing or betting on them but i am keen to learn.is it possible for me to make moneywith zero knowledge? If it is as good as you say it is and i do not doubt your honesty for a second, what happens if you keep winning more times than you lose.

Is it true the bookmakers will just close your accounts and refuse to take your bets.i hope you do not mind me askeing these questions as i was told by agora to email you and that you wouldnt mind.

Thank you so much for your time and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes

Yours sincerely

Melvyn field.

Hi Melvyn

You will have read the sales letter, and I do most of the work for you. You will need to open accounts with such as Ladbrokes, William Hill and Bet 365. Any queries with placing a bet, they will help you with. Restrictions do occur occasionally and therefore when you become more proficient at placing bets, you can open more accounts and spread your bets across several bookmakers.

I always keep my business honest.

Good luck to us both

Mel

Q. Does this involve Lay betting ?

A. No, not at all, Thomas

Good luck to us both

Mel

Hi Mel,

  1. What are your overall profit targets, approximately, for a year’s betting pls? [e.g. 50 points]
  2. Do you still bet with bookies, or have you had to move onto the exchanges now?
  3. Are the prices of the bets you advise always obtainable?
 A. Hi Paul, I don’t set targets like that. I have some Bookmaker accounts. I always give obtainable prices, always!
Good luck to us both
Mel

Hi Mel,

Couple of questions please:

1)  In terms of past profitability of your system (weekly saturday bets)..what are results please because in the initial sales marketing page we got emailed regarding your service I feel it was quite hyped up and mentioned (in the £thousands) per month sort of profit potential? I don’t really believe that is possible right? Now looking at the service to date since joining I believe that was just marketing hype to entice members? And what sort of stakes do you suggest we use?

2)   What is the longest losing run you have had and the longest winning run for your system?

3)   In terms of points..how much profit has your system made in the past please?

Thanks,

Keval

Hi Keval.

  1. As with any business, Keval, you need to grow into it and grow the business itself. I suggest you start with a comfortable Bankroll, divide it by 20 and that will give you a £value per point. As you make profit so you can either build your bankroll bigger, or spend the profits!! There has to be marketing hype, as you say, to get you to read it in the first place – but I am no marketeer. I advised just 4 bets for Cheltenham, making a profit from each of the bets – that was not marketing hype, but fact. No doubt it will be used in the future as marketing hype? Always be comfortable with your bet size and work with monies that are free of any claims or pressures. I try to keep losing runs to a minimum and I believe over the last year it has been 5 or less. The recent run of 4 consecutive profitable bets (and counting) is not unusual. Since starting this service in February, we are 5 profitable bets from 9 bets. As said in previous replies the question should not be about how much profit but consistent profit long term. Everybody has a different Bankroll size.

    Hi,

    Do you just pick the horses that you know will win otherwise there are no bets on a particular
    Saturday. Only winning bets.

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Maria. Ah, if it were that easy!! I use a minimum of 10 years worth of trends, current form and jockey and trainer stats. If I think we have a value bet, then we step forward. If nothing, we wait for another day.

  3. Gordon King says:

    Hi MEL,
    Re- Nags to Riches and live Q and A Session I would just like to know about the
    system how it operates type of bets and staking plan, unfortunately I won’t make the afternoon live session but will hopefully catch it here in the evening.
    Thank you for the invite.
    Regards
    Gordon King

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Gordon. I don’t operate a system. The selections arrive via past Trends, min. 10 years, Form and Stats. The staking is an advised 20 Point Betting Bank, and the stakes are usually 1 Point per selection.

  4. Michael Dunn says:

    where do i get tips and info michael

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Michael. You have to sign up first and then details of a password required website will be sent to you.All the information and instructions and a little about myself is within the website.
      Good luck to us both
      Mel

      • Michael Dunn says:

        i thought i had signed up to receive tips but have had not one tip sent or received please explain whats wrong MD

        • Hi Michael,

          As per the welcome email, all selections are posted on the website. They are not sent out.

          If you don’t have login details for the website let me know.

          Regards,
          Matt

        • Mel Gee says:

          Hi Michael, good to hear from you.

          Tips are not sent, they are available in the members area of the website. Please read about myself and the service within the website and understand that selections are not every day nor every weekend. Selections are given when I feel the time is right and not before. Please don’t be in a hurry to bet and bet and bet, as this is not the way to the profits that I hope to bring to one and all.

          Please be patient and let the selections come to you as I have to wait for the selections to come to me.

          Good luck to us both, Mel

  5. George Shaw says:

    Hi Mel,apart from your Saturday only selections, and festival meetings, do you do any others?
    Best regards,George.

    • Mel Gee says:

      Yes, I do George, but that is another business of mine and it would be remiss of me, if not absolutely taking advantage of Agora, to advertise that business on here. Join with me in the Nags to Riches first, get to know me, get some success, and see what develops from there.

  6. Marek Swiercz says:

    Hi Mel,
    I’m guessing that horse racing is your main strength/source of income.
    I’m just wondering whether you bet on any other sports and maybe use some cunning strategies to give you an edge.
    Kind regards,
    Marek.

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Merek.
      Yes, horse racing is my speciality but I do look for an advantage with some other sports such as football and golf. And yes, everything I do is part of a plan – I’m happy to put my money down, but I need to give myself the best chance of getting it back with some of its friends!
      Good luck to us both

  7. Colleen Taylor says:

    when i joined the claim was make extra £500
    for 5 minutes on a saturday. What stakes do you use as the results page over 6 weeks not made anywhere near that figure

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Colleen. It would not be £500 every time, but it can be. It is all relevant to the stakes used, of course. Take Cheltenham 2 weeks ago, my first bet advised won @ 9/1. At £50 e/w, the return is greater than £500
      Good luck to us both

  8. Brian Marshall says:

    Hi Mel
    I have been a member for a short while now and like your approach
    Just like to know how often bets are made it seems unless you are as certain as can be there are no bets
    And are there more bets likely on the flat racing than jumping
    Best
    Regards
    Brian

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Brian.
      I think what you have experienced thus far, won’t be too different in the coming weeks and months. For me, it is all about placing bets that have a very good chance of a return, rather than betting as many times as possible in the hope of a return. I NEVER bet for the sake of having a bet. I am quite happy to sit and watch a race, no bet. I am equally happy to sit out a weekend too. It’s not all about betting!
      Good luck to us both
      Mel

  9. Marek Swiercz says:

    How have you managed to keep your betting accounts?
    You’ve obviously made a lot of money and so most people getting that much value from the bookies would have been gubbed.

  10. Frank Robinson says:

    Hi Mel can you predict a percentish of how many losers to winners over the year or a R.O.I
    Kind Regards Frank

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Frank
      Not an easy question to answer as there is never two years alike. What I can say is that at the end of a year there has always been a profit in the recent years. Many punters make the mistake of betting less money on say a 16/1 than an Even money shot. I say, get your bank, in my case 20 Points, divide it by 20 and stake accordingly.

  11. Robert Mannix says:

    How do you make your choices, and what scoring is applied to determine if a bet

  12. Frank Robinson says:

    Do you work out of an office or from home the reason I ask this is may be you could have an open day to show or demonstrate how you come to your predictions you must have some sort of set up to go through your algorithams
    Kind Regards
    Frank

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Frank
      Mostly, I work out of an office, but have laptop/ipad/iphone will travel!
      I do not use algorithams.
      I use knowledge learned from almost 50 years of toil, late nights and lost hard cash – my approach is unique.
      Good luck to us both

  13. Jason Browne says:

    Hi Mel,

    Please can you tell me what the £500 each Saturday on the sales page is based upon? Am I thinking £100 stakes here?

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Jason
      Yes that would be a good starting point to achieve those figures. But, please, let yourself get into it first, grow your Bank and let it happen over time, long term. Winning can be done….
      Good luck to us both
      Mel

  14. Michael Mannifield says:

    Hi Mel, sorry to be personal but what level of stake to you apply to each point. Are we talking 00’s or 000’s. Just wondering after years of punting what level you have built upto

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Michael
      Yes, it is personal, and although I will answer all Q’s as honestly as I can, I will not go into personal commitments. I’m sure you understand
      Good luck to us both
      Mel

  15. Jason Browne says:

    Hi Mel,

    Please can you tell me what your long term strike rate is an how many selections given out on average on each Saturday/festival?

    Thanks
    Jason

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Jason,
      Again, this is difficult to answer as no 2 years are the same. For example, at the years Cheltenham Festival I advised NTR Members 4 bets only. There were 28 races in all!! But I proved to be 100% correct as a profit was made from each bet. Winners at 9/1, 11/10 and places at 8/1 and 18/1. As I have said in an earlier reply, it is not the number of bets that count.

  16. Martin Foster says:

    Good afternoon Mel, and everyone too ! Mel, one of the first things I have learned from you is patience. I never had any, I just wondered if that came naturally to you or, like me, was forced upon you to be better. Also, why is everything done in points. I’m 60, and confuses me to be honest.

    Thanks for all YOUR hard work

    Martin

    • Mel Gee says:

      That’s a great message, Martin.
      These are my watchwords…..patience and discipline. Both lessons were very expensive to come by, believe me, but eventually one get tired of losing! I would rather have one bet on something I was reasonably sure of than 6 bets whereby mostly I was guessing with fingers x’d. I have lived my life by sayings, one of which is, Change nothing, and nothing changes. I changed and eventually became a winner.
      Points make it easy to manage a Bankroll. eg. £100 Bank, 20 Point Bank, just divide one into the other and it is £5 per point bet. So if my advice is 1/2 point e/w, then it is £2.50 e/w. My Clients all have different size Bankrolls, so for me I have to advise in Points.
      Good luck to us both

  17. Jonathan Stamper says:

    Hi Mel, great service & great Cheltenham Festival!
    Could you provide some assistance in understanding what the information provided by the betting sites stands for when looking through the horses. I understand parts such as the form, CD, C, D, BF, trainer & Jockey, chase, hurdle etc but there’s other parts I’m not sure on as I’m a beginner. How does the handicap system work?
    Thanks Jon

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Jon
      To help, the best thing is to go to http://www.racingpost.com open up a card, and see what you are unsure of, and use their contact email and they will respond.
      How handicaps work is a very long and winding road, and not for this Q&A, but to help quickly, each horse that runs is given a rating by the official handicapper. Let’s say horse A is rated 65 and horse B rated 60. If they raced in a handicap together, horse A would be expected to give 5lbs in weight to horse B. Hope that helps

    It’s just after 3pm and thanks everyone for joining in. I enjoyed it and hoped you did too – we must do it again!
    I feel sure I answered everyone who asked a question, hope so?

  19. Daniel Thorley says:

    Hi Mel,

    I know you recommend the best odds from the bookmakers, but is it possible to just use Betfair for simplicity?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Daniel
      I am assuming you mean Betfair Exchange? Yes you can, but should a price drift from when given, you won’t get that advantage on Betfair.

    Thanks Mel – sound advise. Look forward to Saturday.

    Sorry I couldn’t join in Mel but family had just arrived. Interesting to read the comments though and to feel that you really care about us!
    Thank you
    Hilary

    • Mel Gee says:

      Hi Hilary. Thank you for the kind words, much appreciated. I am pleased the message of caring has got across, because I do care and I take my role very seriously. Horse racing is my passion, my love, my reason to be, and I would do nothing to bring it into disrepute.
      Good luck to us both
