Horse racing tips today

The tips shown above are the ones that we have crafted for today. However, we’ve also provided an explanation of these tips below, while discussing how these tips are created on the whole – and more! 

Horse racing tips for today

We understand that today’s horse racing tips are time-sensitive by nature. So let’s jump immediately into the tips for today, as displayed below:

The odds provided for these markets are accurate at the time of writing.

13:15 Cheltenham – Haddex Des Obeaux – 9/4 odds

This is the first race of the day on the Cheltenham track, and it’s my first horse racing betting tip for Saturday, October 28th. As you can see, my chosen horse for the win is Haddex Des Obeaux – a powerhouse runner in the handicap chase category. He is the current favorite at odds of 9/4, and since the odds have shortened over the last few hours, punters are clearly piling in. As for why he is my selected horse in this 1m 7f event, he has three wins to his name over the last five outings, several of which came at this exact distance!

13:50 Cheltenham – Blueking D’oroux – 5/4 odds

Straight after the 13:15 event, it’s time for the 13:50 event in Cheltenham. Once again, it’s the race favorite who has caught my attention, and this time it’s Blueking D’oroux who stands out. With a price of 5/4, you can still get a decent return on this horse if he pulls through, which I expect he will at the 2m 87y mark. I just can’t see any of the other confirmed runners taking him out over this distance, and his most recent results, which involve a 2nd from 20 at Aintree, and a 1st from 13 at Ascot, bode very well for his chances today.

15:00 Cheltenham – Bugs Moran – 5/1 odds

Bugs Moran takes the third and final pick of the day, also for an event held in Cheltenham. This fine horse has developed into a household name in the handicap hurdle division, and deservedly so. He won a Novices’ Handicap event in April 2022 at Fairyhouse, which was over a distance of 3m, and he has backed this up with three 2nd place finishes in a row spanning the 2022/2023 seasons. It’s not like Bugs Moran has been running in weak events either – he’s competed against some of the very best, and such consistency within these races suggests that he is a great pick for this one at 5/1 odds.

How today’s horse racing tips have been created

It goes without saying that not all betting tips are created equal. In fact, there is a huge disparity in the quality of horse racing tips for today that you can read at a variety of betting sites. Therefore, finding a site that constantly supplies tips that are well-researched and justified is of paramount importance. This is the exact aim of our site, yet we’d like to explain how the tips have been created to avoid all doubt. 

Analysis of form

Horse racing, as with all sports, is very much a sport where form plays an enormous part in relation to potential results. With that said, form is by no means a guarantee of future results. But it is one of the best indicators we can use to look at the horses and markets we could be backing for any given race. Therefore, whenever today’s horse racing tips are published, you can be sure that the form of the respective horse has been carefully assessed.

Performances in similar races

Although form can be a great indicator of how any race might play out, it is by no means the sole factor that we look at. In addition to form, we look at how horses have performed in similar races in the past. For example, if a horse is about to compete in a 1-mile race, we look at all past performances for that horse in 1-mile races. Then again, distance isn’t the only thing to investigate regarding the historical performances in similar races.

Factors like track conditions, hurdles/fences, whether the track is left/right-swinging, and more can help us to create the most appropriate tips.

Horse rating

Did you know that horses are usually assigned an official rating before they compete in any race? This is commonly described as a horse’s RPR rating in the UK, or Racing Post Rating, in full. Now, this is quite different from other sports, so allow us to quickly explain. The Racing Post Rating given to a horse is based on factors like form, performances in similar track conditions, and more. So it’s a useful metric to check out.

However, there can also be things like an OR rating – the ‘Official Rating’ given to a horse by the British Horseracing Authority. And to clarify, we assess such ratings before issuing horse racing tips for today.

Jockey/horse partnerships

Now, this factor is one that some will agree on and some won’t. But history shows us that the connection between a horse and its jockey is pivotal in its potential success in any race. Over time, a jockey builds a relationship with the horse and they understand what it needs to perform at its best. The jockey also begins to understand the horse’s strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to build a strategy in any given race for the best shot at victory. 

So naturally, this factor has to be looked at to see how a jockey/horse has performed together in the past.

Justification concerning odds

Only when all other factors have been looked at do we then check out the odds for the range of markets relating to any individual horse. After all, the horse racing tips for today would be pretty pointless if the odds didn’t justify the wager. Therefore, only if this final factor justifies the pick will we officially publish the tips.
