This article is about a kind of "Dobbing" test I have been carrying out.
"Dob"(Double or bust) or dobbing is where you normally back a runner early or before the off and then try to lay it for half the back odds.
The lay side normally happens in-play when the prices are affected by the runners performance.
If you get a successful match then it doesn't matter if the horse ends up winning or losing you still profit.
There are a lot of variations on the theme which I will explain more as I build this article up over the next few weeks.
My test started with selecting runners using the linking methos from PR Ratings.
And then I set the trade up using GHBot.
It's now totally automated so all I have to is adjust the settings until I am making profit.
Here is a screenshot from some of the latest trades.
I stated the original test on the 15/11/2016 and have been tweaking it as I go along.
At the time of this screen shot I was around 9 points up.
Although it's not normal practice with dobbing (and I am not sure it is a good idea) I have also added a negative trade out if the price goes 80% or worse the other way.
Here are my GHBot trade-out settings.
I will explain more about this as I add to this article
