Cash Booster

How many times have I harped on about betting portfolios and not looking for a quick buck, but consistent returns??  Too many I hear most of you cry :)

Still, here I am again about to do the same thing, but with it will come what I believe a little gem of a system.  Designed not so much for taking a monthly income from, but for building for a few months or even years - a bit of a pension fund if you will.

Cash Booster comes from Sportsworld Publishing, and I’m pleased to say I’ve had the chance to check it out over the past couple of months and I’m impressed.  Not ‘oh my God, I can’t believe this, I’m retiring now’ impressed, more ‘what a cracking little system that I can use to stick money away for a rainy day’ impressed.  The system comes in a whole six page PDF doc, with the first two pages full of the Title of the system on one and the copyright details on the other.  The system appears on page three and then the last three pages are blank (not sure why but…)  Yup, it’s another oh so simple system that I just LOVE! :)

There are a total of seven rules to adhere to, three for the type of race to look at and four for finding your selection.  The odds you’re backing at aren’t huge at a maximum of 9/4 although there is scope to increase that to 11/4.

Cash Booster is surprisingly selective and, on average, you can expect just one bet a week.  Some will see this as a positive and some as a negative but this is the reason I’d look at this as a way to put money away for a rainy day.  In the two and a half years since it’s inception the authors claim the longest losing run to be just five with regular runs of winners.

There are a couple of different staking plans that can be adopted with this one.  Obviously level staking is the easiest and safest way to bet any system, however, the short losing runs mean it’s possible to adopt a more aggressive plan to boost your profits.  The one laid out in the guide is 10% staking and this has seen the profits increase from £6500 over the two years level staking to over £15000 if adopting this more aggressive strategy.

I had planned to give you a breakdown of my results over the past couple of months, but my laptop crash put paid to that.  My experience mirrored that of the previous months results though.  It took a few minutes each morning to check if there were any potential qualifiers and then a quick check before the off to double check the prices.  There weren’t vast amounts of bets and I’d estimate I had around a 50% strike rate.  For my short trial I placed small level stakes bets and my bank was definitely growing, although again I can’t give exact figures, but I’d say the 10% staking is definitely viable.

As I said at the outset, I’d be looking for Cash Booster to tick over in the background and perhaps once a year or so take a chunk of profit out.  It’s far from high maintenance and looks to be a solid little earner, so it’s a no brainer really.

Until next time,

    They are Mancs :)

    Never finished that comment :)

  3. Craig on September 15th, 2008 17:46

    It really is Lee. As I say above, it’s far from fast and furious, but that’s probably the beauty of it. Well worth it for sticking a few quid away for a rainy day….and we’re not short of those :)

  4. steve h on September 26th, 2008 14:47

    shouldn’t say this really but spent a couple of hours looking at this system yesterday and i’ve either worked out what it is or i have found a system that produces 53.6% winners and 80% places. either way it’s pretty impressive. craig have you discovered a staking method to make the most out of the bets as there’s so few, would be interested to hear how you back them.

  5. Craig on September 26th, 2008 15:13

    @Steve - If you want, you can send what you think the method is to me and I’ll take a good look over it. As for how I play them, I initially level staked just to make sure the method was as solid as the manual suggested. When I was comfortable it was, I started staking 10% of the bank on each selection. Maybe a little riskier than I’d normally recommend, but as it’s ‘play money’ then I’m not too concerned if I lose it.

  6. steve h on September 27th, 2008 14:24

    hi craig, i will be happy to share my findings with you if you give me an e-mail address. i do have more than 7 rules so if i am barking up the wrong tree we can call it the cash turbo booster and retail it for £65

  7. Craig on September 27th, 2008 18:55

    @Steve - Drop us a line at [email protected]

    You might have developed yourself a top wee system ;)

  8. davidsteel on September 29th, 2008 20:32


    Seems an awful lot for 1 bet a week..

    I reckon i could provide you with that for that price..

    Only joking..

  9. Craig on September 29th, 2008 21:42

    @David - Feel free to proof your bets at anytime mate :)

  10. Jeff & the Mutt on September 30th, 2008 09:24

    What happens with non runners & Rule 2? I noticed that Monday initially had no qualifiers but the 2.40 at Bath had 3 non runners which then made it a qualifier. Nothing in the ‘manual’ (ahem!!!) on that. What’s the general concensus?

  11. Craig on September 30th, 2008 09:30

    @Jeff - I generally check for qualifiers earlier in the morning so if it’s not a qualifier then then I won’t include it.

  12. Terry on October 6th, 2008 18:17

    I don’t know the system but I would say with any backing system, if there are fewer runners that can potentially beat your selection or get in its way, then that’s got to make it more viable.

    How has it been since you got it Jeff? I am thinking of plumping too.

  13. Jeff & the Mutt on October 6th, 2008 21:12

    I’ve only had CB for about a week and so far no qualifiers unless I’m doing something drastically wrong, usually down to not making it under the specified odds ceiling. Today’s selection which ran at Warwick came in at a juicy 5/1. Unfortunately that also didn’t qualify under the odds ceiling.

  14. Craig on October 6th, 2008 21:32

    @Jeff - I’ve had nowt this week too. It’ll be like the buses, nowt for ages and then a bundle at once :)

  15. Terry on October 18th, 2008 14:57

    How’s this going?
    Any more bets yet?

  16. LF on October 18th, 2008 23:57

    I have had one CB selection in about the last four weeks! Definitely not a get rich quick scheme :) ……

  17. Jeff & the Mutt on October 22nd, 2008 15:14


  18. Craig on October 22nd, 2008 15:30

    @Jeff - Could’ve had it if you played the higher odds rule :)

  19. Jeff & the Mutt on October 22nd, 2008 15:36

    I’m sticking to the results based rules being the good little punter that I am. Although if you had gone for the higher odds rule today, it was so tight at the finish you could have dropped a clanger (get it !!!!!!!!). The Mutt thought that was hilarious.

  20. Craig on October 22nd, 2008 15:57

    @Jeff - Ah, your wit knows no boundaries :) I didn’t have it either as I stick to the shorter price rule too

  21. Terry on October 22nd, 2008 17:39

    OK I think I have sussed this system.

    If it’s a Wednesday, and it’s high-tide at Hemsby, and Venus is aligned with Saturn, and the horse is wearing a tongue-strap, and the wind is blowing north to north-east, then it’s a selection, provided the odds are between 3 and 3.1

    Am I right?

  22. Jeff & the Mutt on October 23rd, 2008 09:42

    Tonight might be the night. The Mutt’s all of a doo dah.

  23. Craig on October 23rd, 2008 09:45

    @Jeff - Darn, you beat me to it by like 2 minutes :) Best make sure you’ve got the mop at the ready in case The Mutt does a doo dah!!

  24. TonyT on October 23rd, 2008 13:33

    I have almost given up on this system, lucky I read the post everyday. the possible selection was also a possible Filly lay although I havn’t chose that one to lay

  25. Craig on October 23rd, 2008 21:22

    Woo Hoo - A bet :)

    Boo Hoo - A loser

  26. Jeff & the Mutt on October 23rd, 2008 21:26

    I shouldn’t have been rushin’ to back that one!!!

  27. TonyT on October 23rd, 2008 23:53

    Damn It My Filly Lay was between Pension and Rublevka Star. I chose to lay Rublevka because Pension was a cb selection. Guess it could be time to be a system jumper! So thats like 2 losers in 4 weeks! Sounds good BUT no winners. I don;t think its the losers thats putting me off in as much as lack of selections!

  28. Terry on October 24th, 2008 08:39

    I know we have been having a laugh over this, but I would like to ask a serious question.

    Is the system sound in principle enough that you would have backed that horse anyway?

    I.e. Is the selection criteria based on the horses ability, rather than some statistical phenomenan?

  29. TonyT on October 24th, 2008 10:16

    It is based on the horses proven ability, in that it must have passed certain criteria before it becomes a selection. But waiting for those criteria is very seldom…You got to have the patience of a snail to stick with this one.

  30. Jeff & the Mutt on October 24th, 2008 11:46

    @Tony T,
    I’m determined to have a winner on this one even if I have to saddle up the Mutt and ride him over the finish line myself. By the way, I’ve also backed Gordon Brown to win the next election by a landslide and Spurs to win the Premier League.

    This is not laughter, these are real tears.!!!

  31. Rod on October 24th, 2008 15:47

    Hi guys

    Is it worth buying this system after a reasonable time of running it? And if so, is it worth backing at the higher odds option (which I have seen is an option of the system).

  32. Jeff & the Mutt on October 30th, 2008 17:04

    Here we go again.!!!!!!!! 0/4 so far. Should be another one along in a month or two.!!!

  33. Craig on October 30th, 2008 18:55

    @Jeff - Was there one today? I’ve been out most of the day and didn’t have a chance to check for qualifiers…sounds like a lucky escape :)

  34. Jeff & the Mutt on October 30th, 2008 19:36

    15.40 Ling this arvo. Price steamed into contention at the last minute. It lost so you saved your cash. There could also be one later tonight.

  35. Jeff & the Mutt on October 30th, 2008 20:07

    Forget that about tonight. Just seen it’s too far. Concentration lost due to stereo was on too loud with the Mutts favorite CD, ‘Dogs of War’ Saxon.!!!

  36. Craig on October 30th, 2008 20:13

    @Jeff - You had me going for a minute there - was scanning the cards in between mouthful’s of chilli but no qualifier to be found, glad you cleared that up :)

  37. Terry on October 31st, 2008 12:20

    I was intruiged by this system so ended up getting it - wasn’t the 8:20 yesterday a winner?

  38. Jeff & the Mutt on October 31st, 2008 13:09

    Yes. It looked like it was going to be way out in the odds and I wasn’t around at the start so I missed it, so well done you. Should have stuck it on the bot. I’m a bit sick about that as I’ve endured the recent string of losers.!!!!
    There is a possible tonight as I see it.

  39. Terry on October 31st, 2008 21:17

    Bah - no luck this time.

    What do you think to the principle of this? Seems to go against some false-favourite ideas.

    Without giving too much away, one of the rules means that the horse will have gone up in weight since the last run, and hence not be as competitive.

  40. Jeff & the Mutt on October 31st, 2008 22:47

    Good point.!!!
    They claim that long losing runs are rare. Much depends on whether you get on in the ‘odds envelope’ or not, as you did yesterday & I didn’t. I’m currently putting this latest barren spell down the the switchover from Flat to NH. Oct 07 only threw up 2 winners out of 6 & Oct 06 only 1 out of 2. Both subsequent Novembers were much better. I’ve been running this manually but I’m going to use a bot from now on. Let’s see how it goes into N/H.

  41. Rod on November 1st, 2008 09:19

    Looks like you can only lose your money VERY SLOWLY !! Still contemplating buying it………

  42. Terry on November 1st, 2008 11:54

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not convinced about the existence of “Derek and Ann”.

    I think its a clever marketing ploy to skew your perception of the system makers.

    I imagine “Derek and Ann” as a sweet couple of octogenarians who shun hardcore gambling but have a pound on the pools each week. The premise is that if even they can trust this system, then it must work.

    You are buying in to the “Derek and Ann” lifestyle of biscuit-dunking and crosswords that makes you all warm, fuzzy and most importantly guilt free.

    Sorry for the rant - I shall now put down my crack pipe (currently on loan from Ann).

  43. TonyT on November 1st, 2008 13:13

    I think they could be banking on that most people would have given up by the 2nd or 3rd month and shelved it and not even bother asking for a refund. It would even test the most patient of punters.

  44. Terry on November 4th, 2008 15:01

    3 almost qualified today
    1 had 1 too many runners
    2 were over odds limit

    They all won!!!!

  45. Terry on November 10th, 2008 13:39

    Everyone ready for their bi-weekly disappointment today? :-)

  46. Terry on November 10th, 2008 15:29

    Is anyone familiar with the Fail Blog?

  47. TonyT on November 10th, 2008 15:45

    Hi Terry, yup another loser to add to all those losers in the space of 3 months I take it was in the 3.05 wolv was our bet. I think thats 3 or 4 losers so far in 3 months? Sigh….. time to shelve this.

  48. Jeff & the Mutt on November 10th, 2008 16:00

    I need Cash Booster to take my mind off Punters Profits.!!! Todays CB selection couldn’t haul that weight over the last furlong once again. 2 winners would get me back level should that unlikely event ever happen.

  49. Terry on November 10th, 2008 17:21

    Indeed, just proves what I said before about the weights.

    perhaps it should a lay strategy :-)

  50. Rod on November 11th, 2008 16:47

    Is it a laying system now? I’m still thinking about something. Not sure what that was now…… it’s a long time ago…..

  51. Terry on November 12th, 2008 18:39

    Foiled again! Mind you it was an apprentice race *and* a Fancy Filly. Not official filters but in hindsight should have left it, but wanted to follow the system to the letter.

    Now decisions decisions, do we try the upper odds limit for the next one or play it safe?

  52. Jeff & the Mutt on November 12th, 2008 19:03

    @Terry, Tony T & any other masochists out there.
    Another one pipped at the post at Southwell today. I’m starting to enjoy this in a Max Mosley kind of a way.

  53. Jeff & the Mutt on November 12th, 2008 19:49

    I skipped that race for FF as that selection looked a winner to me so I went on to the 15.30 which duely oblidged. Lucky for me ‘cos if I had done that one I would’ve lost out on both CB & FF. Double Whammey. I have had 3 straight losers on FF though due to my liberal interpretation of the rules. Set me back about a week on level stakes.

  54. Jeff & the Mutt on November 12th, 2008 20:36

    @Terry & Tony T.
    The final ‘coup d’gras’ in the 20.20. Why am I punishing myself like this????

  55. Terry on November 13th, 2008 18:00

    @Jeff - 20 past 8 in the evening is a bit late for mowing the lawn isn’t it?

  56. Terry on November 13th, 2008 18:09

    BTW - do you recognise the horse in the 1st at Gt Leighs - it’s the one you missed the other week, and my only winner on the system. Odds will probably be too high, plus it’s a bad draw for the trip.

    so it will probably win!

  57. Jeff & the Mutt on November 13th, 2008 18:41

    Tonight 18.50, not looking good.

  58. Terry on November 13th, 2008 19:05

    Odds were too high so well left.

  59. Jeff & the Mutt on November 13th, 2008 19:19

    Isn’t it strange when you’re eurphoric when a bet ‘doesn’t ‘ qualify.!!!!!

  60. Terry on November 13th, 2008 21:32

    I know! Lucky escape!

  61. Terry1 on November 19th, 2008 17:43

    An evens money loser today.
    I am down to £2 bets with this system, such is the lack of confidence.

    Time to update the review?

  62. Jeff & the Mutt on November 19th, 2008 18:54

    my results from 10 Oct are -5.79 points. As the odds rule dictates a low level of return, it seems it’s going to be a difficult recovery, although I have noticed more qualifying bets lately. Obviously it’s going to be all All Weather from now on. I wonder if the authors calculated that in their origional system & results?

  63. Terry1 on November 20th, 2008 12:12

    , … and another loser at Kempton last night.

    I think this could be the worst start in history for a system.

    Could be worth waiting til December to carry on. Or just lay them!

    Jeff are you doing 10% bank or something else?

  64. TonyT on November 20th, 2008 14:04

    Wow you guys must be the most patient people on earth. I have shelved this weeks ago. Think my money back guarantee has expired. I think 4 or 5 bets in 3 months is pretty bad going even for a system. It wouldn’t be so bad if they all actually WON.

  65. Jeff & the Mutt on November 20th, 2008 14:33

    Yup, definitely not performing at all at the moment. Good news was there were no bets today, what a relief. I’m thinking of shelving it until May 2009 giving the flat season a chance to get going, but the biggest problem as I see it is the short prices can’t recover the losses so a good win rate is essential. If I had layed all of my bets I’d be +6.75 points in front.!!!! Just shows you how these systems produce good results from short timeframes, always something to watch with vendors who give 6 months results.

    Tony T,
    I wish I’d bailed when you did.!!!

  66. Liftman on November 20th, 2008 16:38

    @ TonyT

    Maybe thats the trick

    Devise a system where qualifiers are so few and far between the money back period expires before there have been enough selections to decide that it is a crap system.

    What a canny pair Derek and Ann are

  67. Jeff & the Mutt on November 20th, 2008 17:36

    Following the recent appearances on here from Paul Fowlie, Ross Turner & Hyden Ellis we’ll have Derek & Ann on here now giving us grief.!!! What have you done .!!!

  68. Rod on November 24th, 2008 09:41

    @Liftman - that’s a great idea. But you could have so many filters that everyone would even give up before they really got started. And they wouldn’t bother to get a refund because they didn’t even get near to a selection. Especially if the last filter says only back the horse if the name begins with “L”..

    A guest appearance from Del and Ann would be great !! I’m really pleased I kept my money in my bank account on this one !!
