Winning Horse Racing Betting Tips
Don't follow the herd
To make money at horseracing you have to bet differently from the majority of punters. Let's face it. Unlike the stockmarket which is a positive sums game, betting on horse racing is very, very much a negative sums game. That means more money is bet on horses than is returned to punters in winnings. The average punter on the horses loses about 10% to 20% on turnover in a year. Every year. Now that is not a pleasant figure at all.
One way of betting differently from the majority of punters is to look for horses at double figure odds which you believe have been incorrectly ignored by most punters. This might mean ignoring a wide barrier. We've all heard punters and tipsters say, "It can't win because of the barrier." This might mean forgiving the horse for a bad finish at its last start, particularly if you can find a good reason for that run.
Assess the horse on:
Look for clues to help you like the jockey, record at the track, distance, conditions, and whether the horse is getting fitter (horses early in their campaign are open to more improvement as they get fitter from racing).
