Horse Racing Betting Systems

Below are our reviews of horse racing tipsters and betting systems.

We review each betting product for 3 months as standard, although some may take longer if there are a low volume of bets and therefore not enough action to judge the service properly.

We will record the results exactly as they are given out, nothing fudged or missing, just the honest, unbiased truth.

Horse Racing Betting Systems

The sport of kings is synonymous with betting and since the dawn of the sport people have attempted to find systems to beat the bookies with. Systems are attractive because they take the emotion and subjectivity out of selecting horses – there are rules to be followed, a clear process that is set out and then bets placed. This removes the temptation to back horses on a “hunch” or “feeling” and provides a degree of comfort to those who worry about whether confidence or emotion may affect their judgement. 

There are a huge number of potential factors to build a system around: form, class, ground, the jockey, trainer, course, owner, speed, draw – or any combination of these factors. With the popularity of the sport, people have tried many of the obvious factors, but horse racing is a complicated sport and there are no “easy fixes” to find a winning edge. With the advent of the computer age in recent decades, punters began to use computing power to devise betting systems. There were those such as Bill Benter who did this very successfully, making millions of dollars each year by adopting this approach.

Horse Racing Tipsters

In addition to horse racing betting systems, there are also horse racing tipsters. These are supposed experts in the field, who take the time to study all the form and offer selections to an audience, usually for a fee. 

In the days before the internet, there used to be just a handful of renowned tipsters, usually offering their services through popular publications such as the Racing Post or Sporting Life. With the introduction of the internet though came not only an explosion in betting but also a large number of individuals promoting themselves as tipsters and often claiming excellent results.

However, with this plethora of tipsters there was no regulation and it has been all too easy for fraudsters and charlatans to create false results, inflate odds of selections or quote fantasy prices about their tips, which were not actually available with the bookies. 

Finding You the Winning Edge

This is where we come in at Honest Betting Reviews – we test these horse racing tipsters and betting systems and see if they actually work. We record all their tips exactly as they are given out and what odds they are advised at. We then record all the results in spreadsheets so you can see for yourself what works and what doesn’t. There is no need to go and fork out money for a system or tipster not knowing if the results it claims are honest or false, or whether you can actually obtain the prices it claims. We record all the results not only at advised prices but at Betfair SP, so you can know for sure what results are achievable. We also analyse aspects of the service such as strike rate, return on investment, bank growth, number of bets, cost and most importantly, profit and loss. So you can see in more detail whether the service is suitable for you and your style of betting.

The good news is that there are some good tipsters out there – people who put in the hours of hard work to find the winners and make a long-term profit. The great thing about subscribing to one of these services is that you can benefit from all this hard work and knowledge and all you have to do is the place the bets – usually just a few minutes work a day. And some of these tips you can even get free – check out our list of the best free racing tips.
