Bookmakers Tic-Tac and Slang

They will also often use slang to represent the various prices.

Value Horse Method Link Image

As we all know, the only way to make a long term profit from betting is to only bet when the odds are in our favour. The Value Horse Method shows you how to do just that by selecting horses that offer you tremendous value. It's very well written, easy to understand and is a real GEM of a product. I personally use the method every day of every week.

Racing Synergy is a low cost professional software tool by the "betting automation" team, that allows you to easily find overpriced horses that are therefore offering tremendous value. Racing Synergy scans all UK / Irish races you choose at warp speed and lists all the horses that are overpriced in a simple table. Then its over to you to simply back them or trade them as arbitrage bets. My favourite software solution by far!
