Our Staking Plan and Latest Results

Each selection is advised as a single bet, and at a straight £10 win single per horse, unless otherwise stated. In March 2024, our racing tips were 21.22 points up, with 14 tipped winners and two placed each way selections in that time.

Do be aware that betting on horse racing is difficult to win consistently, that’s why we only use the best analysts and tipsters in the UK and Ireland to give their advice on this page. Previous performance is no guarantee of future success and you should only bet with what you can afford to lose.

Tip 1 - 1.15 Ayr - Pembroke

A race which could have a big say in the Trainer’s Championship as Mullins, Skelton and Nicholls have one each in the first three in the betting but we will take the outsider of the 3 Pembroke. He’s having his first run back over the shorter trip following a wind op, and considering the top 2 in the betting have flown up the weights since there last run, he could be best handicapped out the three runners.

Tip 2 - 2:25 Ayr - L’Eau du Sud

The knock against favourite L’Eay du Sud is that he doesn’t find winning all that easy, which is a fair criticism. However, if in the same form as a month ago at the Cheltenham Festival in the County Handicap Hurdle when finishing second to Absurde by a length, he should be difficult to get in front of. Finished an encouraging second to Iberico Lord into another Grade 3 at Newbury in February and will be there or thereabouts in the Scottish Champion Hurdle off a manageable looking mark of 138.

Tip 3 - 3:35 Ayr - Ballygriffincottage e/w

Despite being over four miles on soft ground, there’ll be no hiding place in the Scottish National. Git Maker, Macdermott, Whacker Clan, My Silver Lining and Mr Vango all like to force the pace, and could all pay the price for going too hard. With the way the race is likely to be run, Ballygriffincottage comes into the equation. He’s likely to be switched off early, and if he can avoid the sort of jumping errors that cost him at Ascot in February, he may just arrive on the scene late and give Dan Skelton’s Trainer Championship hopes a real shot in the arm.

What is the Staking Plan and How Does a 1pt Win System Work?

We advise each bet as a win single or sometimes as an each way single. You can of course choose to combine the selections in a multiple bet, a Lucky 15 or a Yankee etc and that is a very popular way to follow the horses selected in this column daily.

A 1pt win per horse is advised in general and that means whatever your normal stake is for a bet is used as a point. For many this is £1 and for some this is £10 or more but it is totally relative to the individual and shouldn’t be more than you can afford to lose at any time. 

For each way selections we advise a 0.5pt each way stake. So as with the win selections this would be a £1 total bet (50 pence each way) or a £10 total bet (£5 each way).

Where Can I Watch the Daily Horse Racing Selections Run?

The best place is always on the racecourse but that’s not very practical so when it’s not on terrestrial TV with the likes of Sky Sports Racing and ITV (or ITV 4) then the best way to get instant access to live pictures is with a live streaming bookmaker – try these three below for the best of the bunch. We've also got a page specifically dedicated to Cheltenham Festival live streaming.
