Copies of emails and messages that I have received from members and when all the admin and technology stuff start getting me down, I can just read some of the many kind messages and the thought of being able to change someone’s life for the better always picks me up.
Hey Andrew, Thank you very very much for taking the time out for this personal video! Your service is by a million miles the best one I ever joined. Don’t regret it for a single second.

Dear Mr B,
Although you do not enjoy compliments or kind words, it really must be said, by a Gentleman such as myself, that your service is second to none. Honestly, you are the best in running trader I have met by a million miles.
However, what really sets you apart, is that you actually want people to succeed. That is a rare quality amongst the service providers I know…no names mentioned!
Keep up the good work Andrew

I know it’s not much but just want you to know yet again how thankful I am for sharing your knowledge.
I feel like today was a big day for me mentally. For the first time ever, I’ve managed to do a full 4 weeks of trading with no red days and with a daily betting bank increase of 3%. My next target is to make December my first calendar month without a red day.
I’m feeling so happy with how everything is going. I’ve just reinvested some of my earnings on a new desk. I’m really looking at this as a business now and feel it was time to have a dedicated trading area which I’ll have set up to start 2021.
One thing I’ve pissed myself off with this month is that I still managed to have a “dickhead trade”. I was determined to make a serious play for the BFP Mug this month, so I wanted to beat my previous best of 73 green trades in a row to put myself in a position to win one. I managed to start the month with 52 greens and then like a twat got involved in a race I should never have got involved with since safety was a major issue. I was fortunate to get out with around a 40% loss of stake.
Still if you told me at the start of the year that come December that I would be having only one, less than 50% stake loss out of 66 races I wouldn’t believe possible.

Hi Andrew – I don’t contact you very often but thought I would send you an update. Congrats on your trade today. I didn’t get it myself – think I was put off by the short price. Anyway in October I made a profit of £1690.83 for the month. That’s from £250 total (5 x £50) Lay stakes. I only use £25 total b2l stakes. Despite not getting your trade I banked £127. 56 today – that’s from 5 or 6 trades so maybe a couple more than you will say is healthy. Not suggesting in any way I’m anything special at this btw but seem to be doing ok. Funny how two or three £20 – £30 trades can mount up though. cheers

Hi Andrew, thanks for the Video of the trade on Vegas Blue from Kempton. It’s good for me to see that I traded and saw the race exactly as you did. I got involved on literally the same camera shot as you. Obviously didn’t clear over £2K like you. But I’m really happy with my £300. My biggest green. There would have been a time when I would have jumped in and laid Switch Hitter when they had a slap around the bend and would probably have ended up blowing my bank on it.
If I don’t do anything stupid this month it looks like it could well be my most profitable month. Which will make it my third month in a row where I have improved on my previous best. Everything is going in the right direction with my trading.
I record all my trades now and go back through them. Even if I’ve had a green there’s usually something I missed and can learn from. Amazing how much I must have missed beforehand. I really should have started recording and studying my trades earlier. I also write up and make notes on all my trades at the end of the day.
I’m still guilty of overtrading some days. I do trade way less than I use to and with my stakes slowly increasing, and now that I’m laying at shorter odds, the amount of trades I do is coming down.
My personal best for a green run is 73 trades. I’m currently on a run of 40 green trades (hope I don’t curse it!) so don’t think I’m not doing too much wrong (but I still doing some sloppy mistakes every now and then) Over the last hundred trades I’m trading at a 98% success rate. One of my problems was getting involved too late in the race. I’ve seemed to have stop that nonsense over the past few weeks.
I really can’t believe the position I’m in with my trading. Just over a year ago I was working overseas trying to learn to trade while desperate to get home to the Mrs & kids. Now I’m at home, I’ve cut my hours at work from 5 days down to 4 days a week. I’m making enough money through trading to cut down going into work to 3 days a week. But I’m not going to consider doing that until the Covid situation is under control, to minimise the risk of racing having to stop.
I’ll always appreciate you creating this course and sharing your knowledge online.

Andrew is the best in running trader that I have found out there. His race selection process and the racecourse guides are incredibly useful in ascertaining which races to trade. I have been trading on and off for many years, without any real long term profitability, however using Andrew’s methods and his ongoing assistance, my trading success is now consistent. It was the best decision that I have made in my trading life by joining BFP and I can honestly heartily recommend Andrew himself and his service to others.

I was a bit nervous sending you an email telling you how well I have been doing lately. I was thinking I would curse my progress and tempt fate into making me take a massive step backwards, if I were to tell anyone how well it is going. I knew I was stupid to be thinking like that.
Thankfully, those thoughts have proved to have been stupid. Finished a full week of UK racing yesterday, everyday was green and I had my most profitable week ever. Pretty much matched the money I earned from my job last week. I’ve taken that money out of my Betfair account and put it into the bank because I’m happy with this month’s profit already and I want to keep it. I don’t want to rush this into making it all about making money. Didn’t want to get sucked into something stupid like trying to earn more money this week than last. I’m very happy that I’ve started off this week with another green day.
I am trading at just under 95% success rate so far this month. Never get bloody sloppy and stay 100% focus and concentrated on what I am doing.
I know you say your videos and website are your weak point. I don’t really care for a slick website, with highly produced videos that don’t have any valuable content! Personally, I’m more interested in content and information. What I’ve learned from your website with you sharing your trading knowledge has changed my life….and that’s not going over the top, that’s just being honest.
I’ve still got a long way to go but I’m on the right path now. I know if I just keep patience everything will come together. It’s totally up to me, You’ve given me the knowledge to make it happen.
And don’t worry, as far as everyone else is concerned, I let them know you’re a grumpy twat!

The best way I can think of to describe Back For Profit is
The Wife now says to me “Are you not trading tonight love”
When she used to say “Why are you wasting your time with that shite everyday”

Just wanted to say what a lovely gesture you’ve made with the subs for April in such a difficult period for us all.
I joined up in December and this is by far the best way of trading the horses I’ve found. I’ve tried a lot of other methods over the years, worked hard on things but it didn’t feel like they were right for me until I found your way of trading and I must admit I love it!
I’ve kept my head down, worked hard and I’ve been slowly raising my stakes each month as I go, can only trade the weekends at the moment so not always in the rooms but following all the daily trades every day that you all do.
I do ok trading football so I’m hoping this will add and hopefully overtake my income on trading eventually. Anyway just wanted to say what a fantastic place you have here you should be very proud and I’m very happy to be part of it.
Hope to see you more in the rooms as looks like I’ll be working from home very soon.
All the best
