A very disappointing trial it has to be said with an overall loss of £381 (-38.10pts to the advised £10 per point stakes) despite having got off to a flying start.
In fact only 3 out of the 10 weeks ended in profit with the highest been the last week of the 10 week trial where it made a nice £180.

It has to be said however this is one of them services that aims for good priced winners and in fairness they can suffer drawdowns of this nature and just unlucky it had to be when we were trialing it!

Here are the final figures;

Trial Period: 10 weeks
Bets = 199
Win & Placed = 35
Placed = 164

Longest Winning Run = 3
Longest Losing Run = 11
Overall Trial Win & Place Strike Rate = 17.58%
Overall Trial Profit/Loss = -£181.00 (To £10 Level stakes)

Cost:

QUARTERLY – Pay £1.00 – then £119.95/quarter
Also up to 60 days to claim refund if not happy.

Customer Service:
All emails were answered within 24-36 hours from customer service.

Delivery of Service:
Delivery of the service is very good with emails arriving with advised bets the evening before at anytime up to 11.30pm.
All bets come with staking advice and a list of bookies from where the advised prices are offered.

Conclusion & Trial Verdict:
The service went live on 01st December 2015 so nearly 16 months in existence.
In that time the service is has amassed a healthy profit of +581pts (£5,810) to £10 per point stakes with bets ranging from 1 – 4 pts. This is a huge total by any tipsters standards and has to be respected despite the poor 10 week trial.
I have no reason to disbelieve these profits as every bet is recorded and for all to see on the regularly updated spreadsheet.
So that’s an average of £361 per month although sadly not during our 10 week trial.

Now the big question? How realistic are the prices advised as opposed to prices that can be obtained realistically for those following?
Well I did find it pretty hard to obtain some of the advised prices when the email was sent the night before. Then again I reacted pretty slowly in fairness and if your serious about making money in this business then you have to be dedicated and operate with discipline much like the bookies do and that means been quick to obtain best value.

There is also the problem of bookie restriction that is going to catch you out at some point when en route to building this +581 points total. So is it realistic to be allowed to win this amount using bookies alone?. Well no not really, as bookies obviously don’t like winners especially if your taking an average of £361 monthly from them.

Of course you can spread your bets around but even then you are bound to get the knock back at some point. So is it realistic to use the betting offices when they open next day? Again not really as by the time the offices open the price will have crashed as remember this service evolves around obtaining value and that value don’t last for long.
So we are left with Betfair Exchanges or maybe even new bookie Backtype.bet who promise not to ban or restrict for winnings up to £500 per day.(Well in theory anyway).

Well using Betfair for example you are not going to get near the prices advertised on most occasions. However lets look at this a little deeper. If we are to even get half of that monthly total of £361 to £10 per point then you would be doing Ok. You can then upscale your stakes overtime to increase profits as the money in the exchanges close to the off would surely allow that. So even with commission it maybe be viable?. However you will need a bigger betting bank than the 100 points stated to handle the drawdowns. As remember, you wont be winning as much per bet during winning periods so you will need a bigger cushion. At present they recommend 100pts whereas I would double that to 200 points if using Betfair.

The Verdict:
The trial period was very poor especially when you add the monthly subscription fees. Having said that, I’m aware how value for money services operate and this drawdown is pretty normal in the grand scheme of things as a few good priced winners can soon put you clover and swallow up losses.
However, that was still a fairly big loss over the 10 weeks and so I would like to see how it pulls it around and how long it takes to do so. So I will award it a neutral for now and revisit to see how its performing.

Trial Verdict: Neutral

Background To Service & Trial Results Below:

Background:
Flat Racing Master is a Horse Racing betting service and as the name suggests specialises in Flat racing both Turf and All Weather.
Its another service that comes under the Betting Gods umbrella of services.
So far the services states that it has achieved £6,277.90p since official launch in December 2015 that averages around £448.42 monthly to advised stakes. All derived from a winning strike rate of 26.93%.

Price: £1 first month trial and then the following subscription options:
£49.95 per month
£119.95 per quarter
One off annual subscription of Pay £429.95 with no recurring payments
All options come with a 60 Day money back guarantee which is encouraging.

About the service:
This service is run by a Guy called Matt who is the author of the service on behalf of Betting Gods.
Selections are sent via email between 8pm – 10pm each evening.
The service advises Win & Each Way bets with an average of 70-80 bets per month. All our ‘Back To Win’ bets that come with recommended Stakes from 1-2pts Win and Each-Way stakes.
Results are recorded regularly on a spreadsheet from the home page so very transparent.

Staking Advice:
The service recommends a 100 Point starting Bank – so multiply your chosen unit stake by 100 to give you a total betting bank. E.g. £10 x 100 = £1,000 Betting Bank.

Initial Thoughts…
I have seen many emails promoting this service and heard good reports and therefore looking forward to seeing how it performs over the 10 week trial.
All seems pretty clear and concise in terms of delivery of selections so far with clear instructions on what to bet on, price advised to take, what Bookie from which to find the best price.
For the purposes of the trial I will be using a £1000 bank that works out at £10 per point staked. E.g a 1 point each-way bet would be £10 each-way in monetary terms.

Week 10 – Summary
A good profit this week of £180 for the final week, however the service has still ended in a hefty loss over the 10 week trial. A great win at Chelmsford with a 2pt win at 10/1 helped the reduce the losses along with a few smaller wins helped protect those gains. I will be back next week with my end of trial verdict.

Week 9 – Summary
Despite a 16/1 & 7/4 winner the service ended the week with just £12 profit which is a great shame after such big wins.
Matt the man behind the service has admitted this year has not got off to the greatest of starts and has re-assured members his selection process has not changed one bit. That message went out on the Sunday and it was on Monday the service made a bumper profit. So more of the same would do – but is it to late?

Week 1 Results Summary
We couldn’t have asked for a better start to a trial with a nice £112.50 profit to advised stakes derived from 3 nice priced winners and one placed.

Some good tipping considering it was all on the All weather Racing which is the only Flat racing around over these dark winter months.
