+5 Points Stop

Racing Lays is an automated lay betting service, which you can find out more on the main service page here: https://www.exponentialbet.co.uk/racing-lays

I've also written an introduction to the service here: https://www.exponentialbet.co.uk/post/bet-trade-news-24th-september

Today's brief blog post covers the additional betting option included recently that gives members the choice of betting using a stop up feature set at +5 points.

The options available with Racing Lays for members to select are Main, that runs over three days of the week only, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

The High options operates exactly the same as Main, but runs from Monday to Saturday over six days, and the +5 Stop option runs exactly the same as High but will stop at the first 5 point profit reached in any given day.

These options are explained with results updated weekly and shown on the Racing Lays page via the link above.

This means at +5 points once the concurrent bets have been settled on Betfair with the winner decided in the race, and the running total for the day brought up to date within Cloud Bet Bot, the bot will stop betting.

No actions are required by members for this to happen, and each day it automatically resets itself to look for another 5 points to stop at.

To summarise, if you're operating this option within Racing Lays and you make 5 points profit, providing the race has settled before the next one commences the bot will not continue betting for that day, but will resume again the following day.

Some members prefer to stop early at a profit within a betting day, and we found that the strategy had an historical sweet spot of reaching the 5 points a number of times within a week to make it the best stop up option.

Here is a comparison of results from the 1.6.20 to 30.9.20 with and without the +5 Stop option.

These results include the Anti Drift Filter set at odds of 10 across both settings. You can read more about this filter in a recent blog post here:
