Today we have an article from Malcolm Pett of http://greyhorsebot.com.
“Don’t put all your betting eggs in one basket.” The art of “nano” systems.
I like many people who have betting and creating systems for many years believe in creating very specific systems that find trends based on very specific criteria.
I call them “nano” systems.
I have 3 main criteria when creating a nano system.
It is created using one of the five race types (Flat, Hurdle, Chase, All Weather or national hunt flat).
It uses specific criteria like age group or form element or even a particular runner type.
It will generally be looking at 30 or less selections a month sometimes as little as 10 or less.
Although there is no real criteria on the amount of points a nano system may make a month it is generally accepted that's this will probably be 10 or less points per month.
There are two main reasons why you may want to consider creating nano betting systems.
The first is it allows you to find niches within a sport like horse racing that has possibly been over looked and so allows you select runners that either offer better value or that allow you to win more often than statistically you should.
Secondly it allows you to build up a portfolio of targeted systems that combined could allow you to make more profit than may have be earned by using just one system.
Like the old saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”
But let’s have a look at an example.
One of the great things about Nano type systems is that you can be so specific that you can even just choose one day of a week to base your system around.
Now I know not everyone will agree that days of the week should matter to a system and it’s not always the case. But in this instance I did find a system that over the last 16 months has produced a profit.
Of course it could be a trend and it has had some losing months but it has still produced a profit since I first introduced it on the 22/02/2014.
And even last month made 9.43 points
In this case the system used our “in house” rating system (available to users) and used a number of race and form elements to drill down to find this system.
In fact the tool I used (the SPB system builder) has improved so much since I created the system that it is probably worth looking at it again.
Another system I have just introduced is based around French horses doing well in particular UK races.
I haven’t worked out why they seem to do so well but there is an apparent trend at the moment in certain races.
One other trend I have just noticed is in races where there are just three runners.
I found a profit of 76.473 points could have been made over the last 69 races at BSP (after commission) on certain race types.
I have actually put together a guide for you so you can see exactly how to find the selections.

This one actually breaks my first rule but it was spotted accidentally when I was researching statistics for number of runners in a race for a client.
This is just 3 examples of the type of systems you can come up when looking for a more targeted system.
In the next article I will have some more examples of “Nano” systems and some that you can follow automatically.
Thank you for reading I really appreciate it.
