    Who here uses excel or similar software to track their bets, success rates, loss totals, etc and how?

    Interested to know if anyone here uses spreadsheets to analyse their betting or if there is specific betting software available to analyse betting pattern, habits, systems?

    Thanks for your inputs, interested to know!

    Pinnacle gives you your betting turnover and profit, can narrow down by weekly monthly etc.
    I also write down all my bets on paper, not too good at the auld computer:D

    I do almost all my betting on Betfair, some on Paddy Power. I tend to bet infrequently, but larger single bets (for me), and at very high odds. I find you get more back when the odds are big. :)

    A few years back I e-mailed both of the above and got a full history covering 6/7 years. It was profitable, and it has been since, so I don't bother getting downloads.

    Most of my bets are on the US Masters, British Open, English Oaks, English Derby, Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, and soccer World Cup. I have a few small interest bets occasionally. I never bet on jump racing, American sports, soccer, rugby, tennis. I like long time-frame markets where you can bet and then lay.

    If I was betting regularly and keeping records I think it would take away time from what I do, which is entering horse pedigrees into a database, and analysing pedigrees.
