THE MAGIC MIKE SHOW 015: Breeders’ Cup ‘Win and You’re In’ Recaps
Whether it is 2-year-olds on the flat, or novice hurdlers over jumps, it is important to become better than the market with your understanding of the formbook. Look for angles that might lead to horses being overbet next time i. There is so much racing day to day now especially in the summer when evening racing takes place six days a week in the UK , that it is impossible to understand every area of the sport.
The weak favourite who takes a chunk out of the market is a great thing to be able to identify as a tipster. Often these will be from the top yards, particularly in maidens and novice hurdles, where cash tends to flow towards the high achieving stables. On the flat names such as Sir Michael Stoute often have market leaders in races based on breeding or purchase price, not their actual form in the book.
They are priced on sentiment rather than what they have achieved, and becoming good at finding these weak links in the market can pinpoint the best races to tip in. The astute tipster notes a new yard that has a good strike rate and can obtain excellent value by latching onto an up and coming stable before the wider market catches up. Keep your eyes open and your ears shut.
Anyone in racing will know that whispers and rumours are rife. By the time you hear that a certain horse is working brilliantly or the stable lad has had his maximum on, the business is highly likely to be shopped and the price long gone Any tipster aiming for profit should be using his own opinion, from hours of watching races, making ratings and keeping notes Focusing in on the best races to play in is half the battle, and some offering expert racing tips base their main bets on finding these races admittedly it is very difficult to get on, with the exchanges now flagging up the correct price to be placed and it is often a lot less than what conventional bookmakers are offering.
Identifying a bias can be a key element in a tipsters repertoire. Some are well known and priced into the markets, for example a low draw at the tight Chester track is a huge advantage and those drawn in 1,2,3 are always a lot shorter than their form entitles them to be. But others are less obvious or in the public domain. At Fontwell for example it is often a big edge to go wide away from the deepest ground in the winter, but very few riders are aware of this. Jockeys such as Andrew Thornton always walk the course beforehand, and this sort of knowledge can be crucial when searching for winners away from the obvious.
If you're offering professional racing tips, it's important every morning to be aware of the latest ground conditions and weather. A dramatic change can completely effect the claims of all the runners, especially a dramatic softening of the ground when all your selections form is on a fast surface. Using twitter to follow the various racetracks is a great idea, and all have got a lot better in recent times at keeping the public fully informed of any changes.
See my twitter feed stephenh61 for a great list of racing people and organisations that are worth following to gain that vital edge. Identifying great sources for inside opinion will give you a huge advantage. There are plenty offering racing tips on Twitter, but seek out Twitter accounts that offer more than just telling you who to back as most will simply not be profitable long term.
One major problem punters have and complain about when they review a tipster is that the prices tipped up are not widely available. Often popular tipsters such as pricewise in the Racing Post will put up horses that are a standout price with one of the smaller layers i.
The professional racing tipster should aim to offer horse racing tips up at prices that are available with two or three of the major firms such as William Hill, Coral or Betfred If you are any good as a racing tipster the results will speak for themselves, and often those who shout the loudest will have the least to say and will disappear altogether after a poor run of form.
There are plenty of fly by night merchants looking for gullible customers, and these tend to be the ones who exaggerate the success of their tips and shout the loudest when they win.
Avoid them at all costs As a professional racing tipster, the criticisms will come thick and fast when you encounter the inevitable losing run, with plenty of places where irate punters can now vent their spleen. You are likely to be called names, told you are useless and should give the game up Remember that you're posting racing tips for today, not yesterday or last week. Remain in the present with an eye on future success.
Even the best judges of form, such as the excellent Hugh Taylor on Attheraces the best all-weather judge in the business in my opinion , have spells when the trail goes cold and the losses can pile up. Try to take a long run view, keep records month to month, and try not to doubt yourself when things are not going your way. Long term profitability is the key and at the end of the year you can truly judge the merits of any racing tipster.

Pace is used to determine the running style of each horse and whether they are a front runner, stalker, presser, or closer.
Each style is very different and can go a long way to determine who goes to the winner's circle, as certain track conditions vastly favor different styles of runners.
Also keep in mind that the jockey piloting the horse has a lot to do with the pace of the animal, and I factor that too. Another great tactic in picking racing winners is the form of the race horse. Form is simply an "eye test. You probably wouldn't but a college baseball pitcher in to pitch to the New York Yankees lineup. The same goes for horse racing and that is the "class" of the horse. There are different levels of racing where class becomes a huge factor as faster horses tend to race against faster and slower vs.
So you wouldn't put a slower overall horse in against a crew of fireballs and hope to come out ahead, right? Post position is another mitigating factor in handicapping the horses.
The horse that is placed on the outside of the track has a longer distance to travel than the racers nearer to the rail inside.
Now this may sound pretty elementary, but it is a huge factor that can vastly affect the outcome of the races. With all that said, there are still numerous other factors to consider. To see all of these in practice, sign up for my free horse racing picks, judge for yourself and we'll meet up in the winner's circle!
I have changed with the times, and have incorporated parts of all of these factors into my selection process as well as others with my horse racing picks. They are all tools, and like all tools they can build or destroy. The only one I would put well above the others is my knowledge of what I see every day.
Some I may look at as many as 3 or 4 times to find that hidden nuances that would escape the average viewer. All of these elements are necessary in arriving at a sound, logical selection process. I do this for others just as diligently as I do it for myself. As important as all of the new information available to the horseplayer, are the wagers themselves.
In that long ago era mentioned above, the only exotic wager available was the daily double and maybe a tri-fecta on the final race of the card. Now the possibilities are endless. Again the key is to use your knowledge of handicapping to correctly assess what type of wagering strategy fit's the situation best.
Most of my daily selections come from major tracks from around the country. In my wagering strategies, I give you suggested amounts for every play I makeon my horse handicapping picks. This is just a guideline. Each day when I post my results, they are based on the exact amounts which I have stated.
