Horse Racing Tips

Horse racing tips come in many varied ways and they can often confuse the true picture. We list just a few areas where punters should look for horse racing tips but these areas also come with no guarantess. Tipping is essentially an opinion based on information gleaned about a horse or by dilligent study of a horse's form. But where in the horse racing world do you find them:

The Media

Horse Racing TipsPricewise of the Racing Post is the most famous newspaper tipster in the country, who generally only tips at the bigger weekend meetings and who looks for a value bet for his readers; he is one of the very few that if followed religously would probably make a profit for the punter.

His selections are usually made after careful study and he has a fantastic strike rate. So good is Pricewise in fact that national Bookmakers will shorten the odds of any selection he makes out of pure fear. Pricewise only tips up to four horses on a Saturday but often he will select two horses for one race. He stands head and shoulders over all other media tipsters and if a punter wants to follow his tips then they should invest into a Racing Post during special racing festivals, such as the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot or on a Saturday or Sunday.

Stable Tips

Those who live close to a racing stable or who have connections to one often glean a tip about a horse of their's in a particular race.Very often the tip will be passed around until many people know it and quite often they prove correct. The interesting thing about stable tips is that they usually spring from one source, and is not always agreed with by other stable staff.

Tipping Lines

Simple thing to remember about tipping lines is that they are very expensive to phone. punters should be very wary paying a £1 a minute to hear what could be a stab in the dark tip. Remember the tipster cannot lose but his selection and his callers can.

TV Channels

Horse Racing on TVProgrammes like The Morning Line on C4, ATR on Sky and Racing UK often rovide tips via thier interviews with trainers and jockeys. These interviews can be very rewarding, particularly if they are conducted in plenty of time before a race starts. Trainers who are interviewed will always have some idea of how their horses are going to run and are usually willing to pass their opinions on. Trainers are always the best judges and if a tip is given out, punters should be at te ready to strike.
