Our Staking Plan

Each selection is advised as a single bet, and at a straight £10 win single per horse, unless otherwise stated.

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 - 2:35 Curragh - Mr Wagyu

Mr Wagyu has been around the block a few times, with this being the 89th run of his career. His last win came in this race two years ago, and he arrives back at the Curragh in decent form. He just lost out in a photo at Epsom at the beginning of June and has his the frame twice since. Back at the scene of his biggest win, off a seven pound lower mark than in 2022, he looks set to run a huge race.

Tip 2 - 2:40 Market Rasen - Maxcel

Mel Rowley could have a pretty decent hurdler to go to war with in the form of Maxcel. He won on handicap debut at Hereford in 2022, travelling like a good horse and seeing the race out despite being keen throughout. He likely needed his comeback run in April after a year and a half off and has won twice since, going up a stone in the weights. It’s unlikely we’ve reached this horse’s ceiling and he could well continue his progression.

Tip 3 - 3:00 Newbury - Elite Status

Elite Status took a big step forward over the winter as a 3-year-old, routing the field over course and distance in impressive style last time out. Pulled out at Ascot due to the ground, he will be raring to go on a slightly softer surface. He is the pick of the 3-year-olds in the field, and the older horses aren’t good enough to concede him the weight allowance.

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.
