Michael started the Race Advisor in 2009 to help bettors become long-term profitable. After writing hundreds of articles I started to build software that contained my personal ratings. The Race Advisor has more factors for UK horse racing than any other site, and we pride ourselves on creating tools and strategies that are unique, and allow you to make a long-term profit without the need for tipsters. You can also check out my personal blog or my personal Instagram account.


  1. I would like to know who the top ten tipsters are for last month last year and last five years along with their profit and loss results. And possibly their charges

    1. A good suggestion Geoff. I will look into that as a feature of our proofing. Keeping up to date with charges is much harder as they change and have offers very frequently.

  2. You wrote an article for would-be beginning traders on scalping the pre-race market.
    It was clear and specific – no vagueness, no ambiguity. The best I’ve seen, the famous Badger notwithstanding.

    I would like to see more along those lines: 1. Identify a particular, well defined situation. 2. State and demonstrate a trading strategy, including techniques for dealing with aberrant scenarios, accessible to the beginning trader. And, possibly, 3. How to develop the strategy as one becomes more experienced.
    In fact, if you can identify a sufficient variety of situations, you should write a course (for sale, naturally).

    That would be profitable for all.

    Kind regards,
    Michael Lynch

  3. I’m interested in laying false favourites and how best to identify them. Also which race types are best for throwing up false favourites.

  4. I only dutch races, mainly handicaps class 1 to 4 so I can rely on the form and quality of the runners. I tend to dutch the 2nd to 5th fav depending on the number runners and prices. I would like an easy to operate system that could identify runners outside of the 1st 5 runners that would represent a threat to the top 5 runners.

  5. Hi Michael. I’m particularly looking forward to the bet tracker due to be released in the new year. As member @andrewp so eloquently wrote in another area of the forum; “The thing most bet tracking software fails to handle is the deduction of commission when several bets are placed on the same event on the exchanges (e.g. dutching several runners in a race). Commission is charged on the PROFIT FOR THE WHOLE EVENT not the profit on the winner. So, the stakes on the losers must be deducted from the profit on the winner before commission is deducted. To calculate this requires a unique id for each event (race).” As someone who places mostly dutch bets, software that takes this problem into account would be very much appreciated, Michael. Perhaps common methods such as 80/20 and even (dare I say) some of the more commonly used staking plans might also be considered/included, although I’m aware that none of this might be easy. Oh, and please make everything downloadable to Excel too. As always, many thanks.

  6. When the system is fully Betfair integrated would it be possible for there to be a facility that would allow you or me to easily spot ‘value’ bets ?
    A routine say, that monitors prices and their fluctuations (or something like that) and flags up an alert.

  7. I have seen you mention this before in a post but it would be great if you could add US and Australian horse racing….
