The UK has arguably the highest quality horse racing in the World. Many of our UK users like to bet just on the UK racing so you can filter out tips from the rest of the World should you wish and see a page just with UK Horse Racing Tips
Irish racing enthusiasts will argue the above point, especially when it comes to national hunt racing. Prize money at Punchestown is now so good that some top stables will keep their horses for that meeting rather than send them over to the UK for the Aintree grand national meeting.

Another to benefit from the time difference for UK racing enthusiasts is Australian horse racing. You can see the Australian Horse Racing Tips here
French racing has some really high quality races, particularly on the flat and for younger national hunt horses. In the UK we see many top horses from French racing being bought up by top yards for a career in the UK.

Some of our users like to place certain bets on the racing. For example some may like each way betting, others may only bet on the live ITV races, some like to just bet on the most poplar Naps. We have dedicated pages for each of these types of horse racing bet.

Most horse racing tips are win tips, so recommending a bet on the horse to win the race. If however, a tipster thinks that a horse is a good bet to either win or place then they will recommend an each-way bet. Many of our users like to bet each way bets as they are more likely to get a return. Some people like to bet at longer odds and are happy to get a return if their horse comes close to winning. If that is how you like to bet then you can look at our dedicated page for todays best each way racing tips
Some users want to jump straight to our tips for ITV races so we have a page for those as well. If you just want to settle down for the afternoon watching the racing and betting on those races only, for your convenience we have a dedicated ITV racing tips page here

Most other sites provide just tips with little reasoning as to why a tipster is recommending a bet. That gives people no confidence in following a tip. We find that our users want to understand why a recommendation has been made. This helps us to learn which is a core principle of OLBG that exists to help sports bettors to learn from each other.
A really well-reasoned argument for backing a racing tip is what many like to see. Our site is very well moderated by an in house team as well as volunteer members.
Tip comments can be rated and after a while, we get to know the tipsters who really research the tips which they make. This really validates the time and effort that many of our top horse racing tipsters put in.

Our best tipsters compete for generous prize money every month so they don't need to sell their tips. There are some media outlets that provide racing tips for free via highly knowledgeable racing journalists such as Templegates horse racing tips through the Sun.
The difficulty they face is they are often asked to tip on every race through today's racecards. Tipsters at OLBG can be more selective, tipping on one or two races a day or if they don't find any good bets they can choose not to provide any tips at all - exactly how it should be!

However, if you prefer not to provide this information you can still add your picks and win smaller prizes. We used to provide free bets as prizes but have recently replaced these with cash prizes as well.
