Backing To Win
March proved a profitable month for a number of the services who proof their selections to Racing-Index, with the top 5 services all bagging over 50 points profit, to 1 point stakes at Betfair SP.
Top of the shop for March was 2020 Racing, with a mega profit of +185.66 points backing their selections. A large percentage of their winnings came from the victory of Man Of Verve at 80/1 (BSP 164.80). But they also had Big priced wins for Blue Berry @ 20/1 (BSP 32.88) and Regal Flow @ 16/1 (BSP 20.56). This is the 2nd month in a row they’ve received a mention, after bagging 32.61 points profit in February.

Next up was Tipalgo’s Lucky 31 service, where they give out 5 bets each day to be backed in a Lucky 31 style bet (5 singles, 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 fourfolds and 1 fivefold accumulator). It’s not possible for us to proof their selections as a Lucky 31 bet, so proofed results are based on backing each of the selections as single.
If you were to back them as a lucky 31 bet, the 26th March would have bee a particularly good day, where 4 of their 5 selections won and the other selection was beaten by a neck into 2nd.
Backing the selections that day as singles, returned a BSP profit of +22.45 points. But if backing as a Lucky 31 bet, according to the Bet Calculator a 31 point outlay, would have returned a profit of +1,768 points.
Race4Value complete the top 5 with a profit of +50.61 points from 77 proofed selections. The majority of their profits were earned during the first 7 days of the month, which they consolidated well during the remainder of the month.
They’ve returned a profit in all 3 months so far this year, for a combined profit of +69.15 points.

Their selections are all proofed as win only bets and combine a mixture of odds on selections with those at double figure prices.
Laying To Lose
Wayne Bailey last received a mention in my November roundup last year. His place lays have been ticking along quietly since then, but they exploded again in March to return a profit of +30.28, based upon 1 point lay risk per bet.
Things really took off in the last 5 days of the month, where nearly half of the month’s profits were made from a number of odds on lays. The stand out bet was Harmonica finishing 4th at a place BSP of 1.08.

It was a beast of a performance for Sniper Bets, returning a profit of 6.66 points (cue the music from The Omen) based upon 1 point risked per bet. You can see from the graph below that it wasn’t plain sailing, but it was good to see that after each of the 3 dips, the service bounced back to hit a new high, which has very much been the pattern shown, for their bets, so far this year.
