Winning at the Races

For us at The Race Guide there are four different ways you can approach betting on a horse race. No matter which strategy you use, or whether you win or lose, the most important thing is that you enjoy each race and avoid the 'chase'.

1. Follow a professional

Whether it’s one of The Race Guide analyst tips, a journalist in the Friday form guide or an on-line tipster, there are lots of different opinions to follow.

2. Follow a stat or a trend

From trainers that keep winning to leaders on certain tracks, you can win by following one or two key racing stats.

3. Analyse the race

Analysing each key factor and rating horses can give professionals the edge, The Race Guide helps all punters by providing a set of ratings in the pages of the guide.

4. The chase

Rapid-fire betting that quickly climbs above your budget. To be avoided at all costs!


Winning at horse racing isn't the cash in your wallet at the end of any particular day. It's the profit you've made over a long period of time by betting smart and avoiding the 'chase'.

If you're finding it hard to enjoy your racing and can't afford your losses, open up to your friends and call the Gambling Helpline on 1800 858 858.
