Blimey, dear reader, who'd have thought it? The hugely awaited launch of Trainer Track Stats 2009/10 was due to be midday today (10 am if you're an 'early birder' - they catch the worms!), but had to be moved back due to a last minute change of heart.
Now for those of you who haven't been following the action, Gavin's given away an absolute shedload of racing related information and 'stuff' in the last week or so and, whilst researching all that lot, he sort of... well, he forgot that he still had a shed load of things to do to get Trainer Track Stats (TTS hereafter) ready for you..! What a man - so worried about 'moving the free line' that he forgot to release the paid thingie! (Sorry, I've been ribbing him mercilessly about it today...)
Anyway, your loss is his gain. When I spoke to him last night, he basically said he'd [insert rude word here]'d up, and what could he do to put it right. Given that he's now officially fresh out of freebies, we thought a price reduction might be a good idea. I mean, same great manual, new brilliant software, and less for people to invest has to be a good combination, right?
Well, I was a bit surprised when I awoke this morning to an email saying he'd lopped a full hundred quid off the price! But, fair play, it's his call, and I reckon its a very generous one at that (he'll certainly learn the lesson for next time).
So, all the detail is out in the open now, including the price. TTS will run from October 1st to April 30th, and you can get the whole shebang - manual, automated software, and daily selections - for a single one off Â£197. That's less than a quid a day, and it's also less than monthly subscribers paid last year, when there was NO software!
I know we hear cliches about 'recession busting', and such like (often from me!), but - considering Gavin paid three grand (I've seen the invoice!) for the software, and how hard he's worked on the manual for the last two months - I honestly believe this is a steal.
Incidentally, I should also add that there are other options for the 'traditionalists' amongst you (I was one of those until I saw the software - I'm now officially a convert!)...
If you just want the manual, you can get that for a single fee of Â£67 - you'll also get the first month's access to the membership area with the selections in it (but no bot access). If you want to keep getting the selections each day, it'll cost you Â£27 a month thereafter (that's ten quid LESS than last season).
NOTE, if you just want the manual, simply unsubscribe from the members' area - if you're not sure how, ask Gavin or me. It's dead easy. No catches here.
Any questions, just leave a comment below and I'll do what I can to help. I don't profess to know all the answers, but I've been in touch with Gavin a fair bit over the last few days, so I've got a fair handle on things.
In fact, talking of steals and recession-busting, I wanted to show you why I believe that. So... not entirely with Gavin's permission (thought he doesn't normally mind), I've done a little sneaky preview video to show you:
a) why I think the research this year is better than ever, and
b) what the bot does and - more importantly - how unbelievably simple it is to operate.
Enough of the blustering from me, here's the video:
What do you think? If you like the look of the numbers, and the software, you're going to love TTS and - I'm assured - it'll be ready from midday tomorrow.
There's a lot of people waiting for this, and Gavin's spent about half of today responding to 'where's the link?' type questions, so if you think you want it, I strongly advise you get on the 'early bird will be offered the worm and has first option on catching said worm' list...
You can do that from the VIP members' area, and you can get to that by signing up here.
If you don't want to sign up for the goodies and the early bird option, fair enough. You'll still get an option to secure a copy from midday tomorrow (though there may not be many left).
Two final notices:firstly, the software will only work if you have a Betfair account (if you haven't, details of how to sign up are here). Secondly, your Betfair email address and the email address you use when you sign up for TTS need to be the same. If they're not, you can easily change one or other so they match.
Phew! That's it for this most interesting of 'nothing actually happened' Mondays... it feels very much like the calm before the storm...
