Where To Go For Today's Horse Racing Tips?

I trip across an article the other day while surfing and although I do not necessarily agree with all its content thought the common sense of it would make for an interesting read.

The article started by commenting on waging betting war against the bookmakers and on the exchanges but ask you: where we would be without the bookmakers sponsorship today? I think there is a more appropriate analogy where the bookmaker is the lion and we the punters. We have two punters walking through the jungle who trip across a lion. One of the two punters sits down and starts to change his walking boots for trainers. The second punter states that changing in to trainers is pointless he will never out run the lion. The first punter replies I don't need to out run the lion, I just need to out run you. We need the bookmaker and are in fact in competition with each other. Where do my winnings come from? The answer is losing bets and punters.

The article continued

There has never been a greater need for advice on which horse to back to win a race. With so much information floating around, just where do you go for today's horse racing tips?
Many people do not have the time or prerequisite skills to use their own methods of research and form study to identify potential winning horses. Therefore they are left with two or three sound options.

* Daily Newspapers

Firstly every UK newspaper has a horse racing correspondent, who specialises in this field. Many of them are very good indeed, however there are two major problems with using this as your source for today's horse racing tips!

Firstly, the information on the selected horse will be read by so many countless of others. Like the stock market when too many people get the same positive news the price of the stock is likely to rise. The opposite effect happens here, as bookmakers price according to demand the price will plummet, therefore you will not be getting a value price on these selections. Unless the journalist goes completely against the grain and shoots for a complete outsider!

Secondly, certain journalists are connected to specific yards more than others. Therefore information on the Sir Michael Stoute stable might be really impressive, however the same paper tipping a horse from another yard may prove to be very poor. Unless you statistically learn which papers are connected to which yards you will struggle to make this pay long term!

* Betting Systems

Many people use betting systems to generate the selections for them. In principle this can be a rewarding and time saving exercise. There are many good systems on the market, the main problem however is the sheer number of bad quality systems that are sold that do not work!! So the biggest issue here is being able to focus on finding a winning system that can hold the test of time.

TA: I think that this is very important, the view that there are no betting systems or tipsters that provide profit is a falsie. 'Top Racing Bets' are testament to that. Whether they charge for their services or not is irrelevant. Those that charge for their horse racing tips or horse racing systems are not necessarily all successful. Alternatively horse racing tipsters offering a free service are not necessarily free because they are so poor they can not charge. Back to the article:

* Horse Racing Tipsters

The industry has created the myth that all sorts of dodgy cockney type shady characters are on every street corner selling information for cash! In fairness over the years there have been plenty of rouge tipsters that have not helped. However, many of the top racing tipsters are incredibly well educated and some are professors and mathematicians!

When finding the right tipster, bar none this can be the most lucrative source for today's horse racing tips. Unlike the papers, they do not have to give a selection for every race, they only give out the information from stables they are more than likely connected with. This ensures that the advice and selection given on any one day, will at least be trying and tuned to win.

Wherever you seek the information on today's horse racing tips, keep an open mind. Realise also that you get what you pay for. The industry is run on inside information, and those really in the know are part of the 'lucky' two percent of an elite group of winners!

TA: Not sure about 'you get what you pay for' comment as it insults me but hey-ho. One thing I feel really strongly about and would be, in my opinion the most important factor for anyone seeking to profit from horse racing tips and information. You must not take a small snap-shot of results and make up your mind whether a service is good or bad. Neither would I paper trade while testing a service. Initially using small stakes over an extended period makes more sense and build up your bank. If the service is good in the long term it will not take long to show a healthy profit.
