5 Professional Horse Racing Tips

So if you’re reading this article, it’s quite possible that you want to take away the middle man and do as the professionals do in order to find yourself the winning horse. Well to do that, you’ll need to have a helping hand along the way. We’re going to list 5 tips that the professional definitely master there craft by.

Tip 1 – Do you research!

From the moment you start out, you need to be making a conscious effort to research what horses you’re betting on, following what the betting markets say is not always the way to go. So, take a look at the history and form of the horse, what surface suits better and what surfaces are at the course that day, how long it’s been since the horse last raced, any changes to the horse such as being fitted with a tongue tie or having had wind surgery, who is the jockey and who has trained the horse, the list goes on.
Get yourself a little note book to note down what bets you are making and how they resulted, that way, you’re able to keep track yourself in addition to reading the latest description of the horse (of which you can find on https://theracing.co.uk/races/today/ and clicking on the race you want to focus on)

Tip 2 – Learn the Lingo

You don’t want to restrict yourself to certain bets just because you don’t understand certain terminology. Similarly, it’s gut wrenching to think you’ve won a bet but to find out that you’ve misunderstood the way a bet is phrased and you’ve actually narrowly missed out.

Tip 3 – Ask yourself – Has it realistically got a chance of winning?

Always compare the class of the horses recent runs, the odds of its last races and its finishing position. Back horses that have been knocking on the door recently in similar company. Look for horses moving up in class after winning efforts or strong placings, horses dropping in class are now facing easier runners and have to be considered seriously.

Tip 4 – Bankroll Management

Stay focused and disciplined. Don’t bet random amounts and risk large portions of what you’ve set out to stake (and that’s another thing, always set yourself a stake limit). Stick to smaller stakes to begin with to give yourself the time to learn without spending all of what you’ve allocated to yourself.

Tip 5 – Understand the odds!

Make sure you understand odds! Whilst an accumulator that is sky rocketing into the 100’s/1 is

so tempting when you look at the returns, the higher the odds, the less likely a wager is to win.

Of course the greater the rewards will be if it comes in.
Was the horse between 2-1 & 6-1 odds in last start? Horses in this range show that they took money in their last start and possibly should have performed better – many winners go off in this betting range.

Bumpy Johnson

Racing Post – Easy bumper winner in October and did well to finish a close third on his hurdling debut the following month, given how moderately he jumped; needs to have tidied up that area and should go very close if he has.



Champagne Rhythm

Racing Post – Three very consistent displays, the latest pair over C&D, and deserves a change of fortune; very likely to perform up to his best again and high on the shortlist with conditions no problem.



Heart Of A Lion

Racing Post – Emphatic win in Southwell bumper (1m7f, good); runner-up on last two attempts over hurdles; had wind surgery since and now goes handicapping off a lenient-looking mark; top connections; shortlisted.




Racing Post – Came good at the 11th time of asking over fences at Fakenham (3m, good) in March; didn’t jump with much fluency in a competitive Ascot handicap on his reappearance but he wasn’t disgraced in seventh and Kevin Brogan takes a handy 5lb off here.
