I’m a professional gambler, and I share my horse racing tips for today. My Free Bet of the Day will be posted below, after midday most days. Since my Premium Advisory Service launched on 1st of October 2013, the Free Bet changed slightly. The advisory service has around 15 bets a week, and they will be emailed to members daily between 8:30 and 11:30 in the morning. The Free Bet therefore will now be the horse I think represents the best bet of the day, at the current odds after the 11:30 cutoff for my premium bets. It might be a horse that fell just below the criteria for a premium bet, or it might be in a race where the market hadn’t properly formed before noon. As soon as I post today’s horse racing free tip, I will tweet a link to this page, so please for updates to this, and other pages on the website.

I’ll provide a brief reasoning of why I think the horse is a good bet, a more detailed explanation would only result in giving away any angles I have, to the benefit of the bookmakers, and also the price might shorten, while I’m writing up the article. It’s important to get on at the price advised, so if you don’t have an account with the bookie going top price, then sign up, and avail of the free bet they offer to new customers.

Since it was launched in May 2013 the Free Tip of the Day is showing a profit of +264 points to advised stakes, this includes all Rule 4 deductions, and best odds guaranteed, where applicable. The Return on Investment is a good +11.7%, especially considering my best bets are on my Premium Advisory Service which has been hugely successful since launch in October 2013.

Free Bet of the Day –  Thursday 11th of April 2024

3 PT Win Shishkin at 11/4 with Bet 365

Today’s Horse Racing tip runs in the 2:55 at Aintree. I’m not his biggest fan, and he’s definitely not the most reliable, but I still think Shishkin should be favourite for this  today. He would have won the King George but for unseating, and that form is at least as good as Gerri Colombe’s second in the Gold Cup, with the proximity of Corach Rambler at the last, before he faded in a well run race, suggesting the form was nothing special.

Shishkin does need to prove himself over this trip, on heavy ground, but his best ever run was on soft, and he looks a stayer these days, were as if they don’t go a gallop Gerri Colombe could lack pace over this shorter trip. The fact Nicky Henderson has pretty much closed up shop the last few weeks is a concern, but equally it’s now 5 weeks since the first signs of any issues and it’s very likely the yard is clear by now. I would however be very worried about the Gordon Elliot stable form with just 7 places from 44 runners the last two weeks, when 13 would be expected given their Betfair Place SP.

Third favourite for this is Corbetts Cross, and he looks a cray price at 7/2, he would have been at least 50/1 in the Gold Cup, and I can’t imagine many backing him at that, yet now there taking 7/2 on him to beat two of the best chasers around, just because he easily won an egg and spoon race at the festival over three miles and six furlongs. He’ll likely need  at least three of the others to be well below par to win.

Shishkin looks a good bet at 11/4 and I wouldn’t put anyone off having a bet on Gentlemansgame at 28/1 too. Yes he flopped in the Gold Cup but he goes on the ground and if the top two run below par, a reproduction of his Wetherby win could easily be good enough.

If you don’t have accounts with all the bookies on my free bets page, then you should register, and take advantage of the great sign up offers. Finding the best horse racing tips, or doing your own research, is only part of the battle, to attain gambling profits. Having  numerous betting accounts puts you in the position, to always get the best price, which is vital to maximize your gambling returns. I couldn’t overstate the importance of shopping around.

BOG stands for Best Odds Guaranteed, which means if you take a price and SP is better, you get the SP. It’s one of the reasons why betting at morning prices is very advantageous to punters.
