As well as keeping on top of this TipTime website, we also spend plenty of time admiring the work of all those who have either come before us, or who have been writing about this industry and horse racing in general for years…
…and with the list of links below we salute them!
Professional / Industry Websites
Racing UK – Official website for Racing UK (SKY channel 427)
Includes the rather excellent Racing Chat forum where punters discuss their bets of the day.
At The Races – Official website for At The Races (SKY channel 415)
A very good website, includes a free tracker where you can sign up for email updates to be sent when a horse you like (and have added to the tracker) is due to run on the following day
Racing Post – Official website for the Racing Post
Very useful for looking at full racecards and checking past form, for horses and greyhounds, and news about racing and sports betting (all free). The really juicy content (tips, race videos, etc) requires membership and this starts at around £12/14 a month for ‘Essential’ membership and £26 a month for Deluxe. Not great value for the casual punter, but cheaper than buying the Racing Post paper everyday.
Sporting Life – plenty of news and information for any level of horse racing punter, worth bookmarking.
BBC Horse Racing Pages – Subsection of their excellent Sports content; really good place for getting results and reading the main headlines around racing, especially during festivals. Good links to other sites and features of interest too.
Tipping & Research Information
GG.com Daily Tips – every race has a horse tipped up each day; performance is varied but good way to validate some of your Placepot picks.
High Class Equine – Great blog; lovely write ups and articles and some very, very impressive professional analysis and tipping for races that involve 2 year old horses.
Grand National Guide – great independent resource dedicated to the Grand National.
