Got a question about “Horse-Racing.ie”, or about the systems and services we review? In this section you’ll find the answers to the most commonly asked questions we receive from our visitors and subscribers, but if you have any other questions or queries feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to help you.
Q. Why should I trust the information on Horse-Racing.ie?
A. Horse-Racing.ie is brought to you by the team behind the hugely respected Geegeez.co.uk website. That site has been delivering impartial ‘warts and all’ system reviews for years, and has more than 6,000 subscribers. Here at Horse-Racing.ie, you can expect the exact same level of unbiased reporting. If it’s good, we’ll say so. If it’s not good, we’ll say that too.
Q. What does Horse-Racing.ie cover?
A. Mostly, we will be looking at the Irish horse racing fraternity, reporting on upcoming races, past races, jockeys and trainers in form, festival meetings, and the like. We also take the time to fully review horse racing systems, and often aim to test British racing systems for their suitability to use on Irish racing. Horse-Racing.ie is not affiliated to any major corporation or such like, so we can say things exactly as we find them. We hope you’ll find that refreshing.
Q. How much money do I need to start using a betting system?
A. This is one of those ‘how long is a piece of string’ questions. Rather than thinking in money terms, try to think in terms of ‘units’. That is, if you have 1,000 euro available to bet with, break that into 100 units of 10 euro each.
Of course, in the first instance, we here at Horse-Racing.ie strongly encourage you to ‘paper trade’ any new system. By this, we mean you should track the results without spending any money, until you’re comfortable that you a) understand the system, and b) think it’s going to work for you and your betting style.
Horse-Racing.ie will almost always review systems where you can either get a full refund for a period of time after purchase, or take a free trial prior to purchase, or both. So there’s no excuse for not paper trading!
Q. Should I use a staking plan?
A. Again, this is a very personal decision, based on your appetite for risk and the system that you’re using. Typically, and unless the system or service specifically requires a staking plan, my advice is to use level stakes – at least whilst paper trading. If a system or service cannot make a profit to level stakes, it will generally be accelerating the loss when a staking plan is invoked.
