    Horse Racing Tipsters – Are They Worth Your Time & Money?

    This is a somewhat awkward topic I have chosen to cover since I work for a website that offers tips on horse racing! I am personally not a tipster and admire anyone willing to risk their reputation to try and help punters earn a profit at the expense of the bookies. However, for every reputable tipster with a proven track…

Known as ‘Royal Ascot’, the meeting has been the course’s centrepiece since 1711 after being founded by Queen Anne. Entry to the festival comes with a guarantee that you’ll see world-class action as there are a total of…

    Van Der Wilding

    We’ve spoken a lot recently about the Van Der Wheil since we launched a leading piece of software for using it. However, what we haven’t spoken about much is Van Der Wilding. This is an approach that Michael Wilding, the founder of the Race Advisor, created and used to excellent effect. Since he wrote about it, over 3750 people have…

    How to Find Front Runners for Back to Lay Opportunities

    This was something I’ve wanted to write about for a while but the notion of getting value from front-runners on the Betfair Exchange became embedded in my mind after the Chester Cup. I had backed the well-known front-runner My Reward at 14/1 and saw its odds tumble to around 9/1 by the off. Within 20 or so seconds, when the…

    Who To Watch – Week Beginning 21st May

    A slightly quieter week in store with regards to the fact there is no major festival like we’ve had with Chester and York. But some good action nonetheless with Sandown’s Brigadier Gerard evening on Thursday which will be shown on ITV4 and also the Temple Stakes at Haydock on Saturday which will hopefully feature the return of the explosive Battaash.…

    The York Dante Festival: Can Trends Help You Go Off The Beaten Track For Profits?

    The trouble with festivals is that the feature races are exceedingly competitive. Take the main event at the York Festival, the Yorkshire Cup for example. Less than a week from the race, there are 11 horses at odds of 16/1 or less in an event where 13 of the last 21 favourites have failed to win. However, the last four…

    Trainer Sweet Spots – Are the Forums Right?

    It is a well-known fact that some trainers have a clear preference for specific courses. For example, in his career, Paul Nicholls has a 56%-win rate over jumps at Southwell, a 40%-win rate at Leicester and win rates of 35% at Fakenham, Perth and Musselburgh. Meanwhile, he struggles at Market Rasen (17%), Haydock Park (17%), and Towcester (12%). We also…

    The Tote Jackpot and Placepot

    In February, it was announced that the Tote would be replaced by Britbet on most UK racecourses from July 2018. It brings an end to 90 years of history as the Tote was set up in 1928 with Sir Winston Churchill playing a major role in its formation. It remained government-owned until July 2011 when Betfred purchased it on a…

    It’s been a little while since I wrote a blog post, and what better time to do so than on the day of the Grand National. I’m going to use a combination of the Race Advisor’s tools to make my analysis of the race, beginning with Racing Dossier to narrow down the field. With so many good runners in the…

It announced a change to handicap race entry criteria which meant that horses rated 1 or 2 pounds higher than the allocated rating band could enter the majority of races.

I have written dozens of articles for Race Advisor that offer readers an insight into different betting systems to see if they have the potential for profit. A recent example was the ‘Nowhere Fourth’…

    Is horse racing fixed?

    It’s only in comparatively recent years that the perception of horse racing being a fixed sport has started to change. Even though the perception is changing, in a recent survey 49% of people still thought that there was corruption in racing. So what’s the truth? Here at the Race Advisor’s headquarters, we’ve all got different opinions based on our own…
