Many horse racing tipsters operate these days and make their information available in a variety of ways. From premium rate telephone lines, Pay As You Win services, email, web and even on smart phone apps the information is readily available at anything from free, to hundreds of pounds.
Free tips are often available on a daily basis in racing papers, such as the Racing Post and on their websites too. The Racing Post in particular is lauded as the place to go mainly for their ‘Pricewise’ tipster Tom Segal who regularly sends out great value tips in the paper especially for the big handicap races which are so often hard to call. His success is often mentioned on live Channel 4 broadcasts. Their other tipsters range from specialists on certain training centres such as Lambourn or Newmarket to those whose task it is to pick a horse in every single race at a certain meeting, whose tips you will find on the race card.
The dedicated racing TV channels also employ renowned tipsters. Racing UK and AtTheRaces have tipsters such as Hugh Taylor and Gary O’Brien who supply daily value racing tips via the website as well as on the channel itself. The Speed Ratings section of the AtTheRaces website is run by expert Lawrence Taylor who painstakingly keeps track of how fast each and every horse is running in the UK and Ireland before making a judgement on each race every single day.
Some tipsters though specialise in supplying only top class professional information with a very high strike rate, ideal for those considering themselves as professional gamblers. Professional gamblers are willing to pay a subscription service fee for top class information or indeed place a bet on behalf of a tipster as part of a Pay As You Win service. Professional tipsters and gamblers range from people such as Alex Gorrie who has been in the game for over 20 years, to TV personality Derek Thompson and ex jockeys Colin Brown, Richard Dunwoody and Jason Weaver. A great addition to the tipping sector was TipsterPlatforms, who run a website featuring only the best tipsters in the UK all in one place. From there customers can decide which tipster is best for them and decide also which type of service is preferable, i.e. a PAYW, subscription or other.
A newer way to receive racing tips has come along with the advent of apps for smart phones. Racing UK and the Racing Post both have popular apps featuring the tips of their own resident tipsters and now there is an app by professional tipster Gary Christie available for Apple devices sending out daily horse racing and football information. This app is available for a one-off price so once the customer downloads the app they have it forever and can access the information every day.
Tipsters are regulated these days and always proof their selections in advance, usually to the Racing Post, so that they cannot advertise a winner that they in fact did not select which protects people from unscrupulous tipsters who may still try to operate. Whichever tipster you choose be sure to do a little homework first and take advantage of any offers and free info which is out there. Remember though that if it is regular profit you are looking to make, then it will take a small fee of some kind to get that information from a professional tipster.
