Review Of Bet Selector Software
was asked a few weeks ago if I would like to have a play
with and review the Bet Selector software.
not? Nothing ventured nothing gained! Anyone who has been
playing with trying to win on the punt for more than a
few days would have come across references to this software
and (from what I understand) its developer Neale Yardley.
in Bet Selector and you'll find it at the top of the free
listings on the search page. Let me quote from the front
page of the site (http://www.capitalinfo.com.au/)
full version of our Bet Selector betting software is really
five horse racing programs in one!
• The original handicapping program Price Predictor.
• The popular racing systems program System Selector
that picks system selections.
• The Tote Pro TAB betting software that uses our
unique place betting maths for place and exotic betting.
• The Race TAB Live TAB betting software for collecting
TAB pre-race approximate dividends and post race TAB results,
• The System Analyser software module to help you
design your own selection systems.
does indeed in do all that and then some. Let me say right
from the outset that I don't believe that this is a programme
for a real computer novice. If you struggle with sending
an email, you'll get lost here. This is a very advanced
programme with a lot of features that I haven't even begun
to utilise or access or fully understand yet and I have
been playing with it on and off for a few weeks when I
have had a little time to investigate its capabilities
said that, it is also fair to say that if you want software
that will test out any system ideas you may have or utilise
it for whizzing out system selections for tomorrow, this
is the "bees knees" and it should not be too
hard to learn in a reasonable space of time.
that you will be able to put in more time than I, you
should be able to master even the most complex of its
utilities in a few days of concentrated application and
the results will be worthwhile. The online help site is
very informative but I do stress that this is a complex
piece of kit for anyone who is a real beginner in the
world of racing and form analysis.
download of the programme is simple and straight forward
- no dramas here - set up your passwords and away you
go. It then becomes a matter of where you want this programme
to take you. Now you do have to also purchase form for
the system to work. There are a few options here. I thought
the best option was through bestform.com.au. Yes, it is
$55 a month. Really, in the world of business, big deal.
business ventures have input costs so before you go down
the road of saying,"I'm not paying for form and
I can get for free", I'd have another look at
the issue. I think you may find it's the best $55 a month
you've spent in quite a while. The bestform option also
gives you access to bucket loads of results and history
(years worth) which makes testing out your ideas a lot
simpler than the way I do my stuff in real time. (Perhaps
there is a lesson here I should be learning?)
subscription can be sorted out out painlessly in a matter
of moments and, again, is an efficient, transparent and
fun then begins and here is a warning - this is a very
addictive programme as far as getting deeper and deeper
in to what it can actually do! Hours just melt away as
you do the old trial and error stuff before you get around
to the online help pages. Isn't that why they print manuals
for things? So you only bother reading it AFTER you've
explored every other alternative and can't get it to work
The Bestform option also comes with differently calculated
sets of ratings and ratings prices so is quite handy.
I haven't had time to really analyse these but on a quick
scan review with the Tote results seem quite good. Over
time it will be interesting to observe but I haven't had
time to go right in to those. I know some people swear
I note there are a few options purchasing this software
from a bare bones basic model through to the whole shooting
match. Sincerely, I would think from what I've been playing
with so far, if you are going down this track, buy the
Rolls Royce version rather than the basic model if you
are familiar with fiddling with software programmes. If
you are a bit of a software novice you can buy the basic
model and add the other modules on later if you decide
it is for you - it costs no extra to do it that way from
what I read on the site.
know from my son in law computer programmer that when
it comes to hardware, he tells me you should always buy
the best you can possibly afford and I guess software
is no different. I know, it costs money. But if you are
serious about turning a few dollars from this, your chosen
sport, it really is a powerful programme that just may
put the odds your way for a change. That's up to you to
decide. When you look at what some folk spend on a set
of golf clubs I guess it's no real big deal!
are three versions ranging in price from $450 through
it's a very good programme. I hope to get some more time
to "play" with it over the slower Xmas / New
Year break to fully get a handle on its capabilities and
strengths and get to understand more of any weaknesses
it may have.
After a few weeks of playing with, I give it a 9 out of
10. If that changes in the ensuing months as I get more
and more familiar with the software, I'll update this
