Guide to betting on horse racingThe thunder of hooves, the roar of the crowd, the flash of silks…

Not much can beat a day or night at the races except maybe the feeling you get when your horse wins! And you don’t have to get dressed up to have that feeling on any given day…you just need some knowledge that will give you a better chance of beating the bookie.

Some sites we recommend can give you extensive, up to the minute betting odds and tips on horse-racing events, such as Cheltenham and Grand National, but provides you with a comprehensive guide as to how to make the most of your betting experience.

In these pages we explain some of the basics of horse racing betting through our easy to digest guides; from how the different types of bets work, to how to understand the odds and how to pick a Grand National winner (well, maybe) or bet on the Tote at a racecourse you might be visiting.
