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 +217 points to advised stakes, this includes all Rule 4 deductions, and best odds guaranteed, where applicable. The Return on Investment is a good +10.3%, 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 –  Friday 17th of January 2020

2 PT Win Savalas at 4/1 with Paddy Power

Today’s Horse Racing tip runs in the 2:05 at Lingfield. There’s five runners in this and none of them have made the running in any of their last four starts, so a steady pace is a definite possibility here, which could count against the favourite Reckless Endeavour who was flat out for most of the trip before getting up late at Newcastle last time.

Count Otto was very interesting at opening quotes of 8/1 last night, but the 4/1 he is currently looks about right, as a lack of pace would count against him too. Him, and a few others in the same race, got borderline incompetent rides last time over this course and distance, giving away a big lead to two horses despite them going steady themselves, and he did very well to get within two lengths of the winner.

Savalas’s recent form is as good as anything else in this though, despite the fact he wasn’t quick into stride for his two second place finishes at Chelmsford. Both of those came over five furlongs and he came home strongly in both. He has been slow away a good bit lately, but he jumped okay last time, before receiving a bump after a couple of strides, so he did very well to be only beaten three quarters of a length. The extra furlong here and lack of any others wanting to lead should help him at the start, and he has made the running plenty in the past, so is most likely to take advantage of a soft lead.

If you want my best bets everyday, check out my Premium Advisory Service. The profit since launch until the end of December 2019, for the Premium Bets and the Festival Packages combined, which Premium Members also receive, is + 1,965 points, which is +€49,125 at the recommended €25 a point stakes, for an exceptional ROI of +17.3%. The figures quoted don’t include any BOG either. The recommended starting betting bank for €25 a point stakes is €3,500, so that’s a remarkable 1,404% bank growth in just over six years.

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.

I also provide Free Big Race Previews and Tips, so check them out, for all the grade/group one races, as well as all the top handicaps.
