Flat Stakes Racing is a new horse racing tipster service from a tipster known only as Paul. It is provided in conjunction with Tipster TV and pretty much offers what it says on the tin.
What does the product offer?
The sales material for Flat Stakes Racing claims to offer “The Ultimate Way To Make Big Profits From The Wonderful World of Horse Racing”. In fact, this is the headline for the service. So with this in mind, does Flat Stakes Racing really offer something that stands out that much from the competition? In terms of the volume of bets, Flat Stakes Racing generally produces between 1 and 4 selections on a given day with the majority of bets advised as win bets (although there are the occasional Trixie).
Turning to the numbers, as the name suggests Flat Stakes Racing follows a level staking plan of 1 point per bet (with 1.2 points on the Trixie). The strike rate currently stands at an average of 24.92% since the service launched at the start of December.
How does the product work?
Rather disappointingly, there isn’t too much in the way of information on what the selection process for Flat Stakes Racing actually entails. Paul says that he has been involved in horse racing since he was “a young boy” and that since the age of 26 he has been betting professionally. There is also a strong focus on the money management side of things.
This is about all of the information that we get, information that you will likely notice is sorely lacking in terms of anything practically related to the selection process for Flat Stakes Racing.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing, there are only two options if you want to sign up for Flat Stakes Racing. The first of these is a monthly subscription (which actually runs for 28 days) that costs £57 plus VAT.
Alternatively, you can sign up for the quarterly membership which runs for 90 days and comes in at £114. This makes Flat Stakes Racing one of the most expensive services in the Betfan stable.
The fact that Tipster TV is a part of the Betfan group also means that there isn’t really any money back guarantee in place.
What is the rate of return?
Since going live at the start of December, Flat Stakes Racing peaked with over 250 points of profit in three months. Unfortunately, since then the service has suffered from a small (albeit consistent) decline.
The ROI however does remain for Flat Stakes Racing does remain at __ however which is a very strong result.
The nature of Flat Stakes Racing means that this is going to be a bit up and down. The fact is that there is a tendency here to find some pretty decent odds, something which can naturally lead to losing streaks.
The staking plan also means that the losses that you incur aren’t too bad when Flat Stakes Racing isn’t winning. The problem that I have, more than anything else, is the costs involved.
Spending £60 per month on a service that can take a while to get going can be a struggle to justify, especially given the current losing streak.
