Winning Money With BetTurtle Racecards

We think our race cards are brilliant (we may be a little bit biased) and we are determined to help everyone that uses BetTurtle to learn their power. Here are a few handy tips to increase your chances of profit.

1) The Horseshoes help you filter the best horses in the race. In general, too much RED and you should avoid the horse. The exceptions are for horses from Shrewd trainers (Gold Stars next to their name), hot trainers or jockeys (names with RED backgrounds) and horses that have attracted market support (GREEN horseshoe). 

2) Watch out for Shrewd Trainers (Gold Stars next to their names) , as they are trainers who have a habit of winning at decent odds In certain types of races.  

3) In the main, avoid cold trainers and jockeys (names with BLUE backgrounds) unless there is market support (GREEN market horseshoe).

4) Be wary of our win tips if the market horseshoe is RED.

5) Click the STATS and FORM buttons to see a wealth of information that can help you further.

6) Hot trainers and jockeys (names with RED backgrounds) are enjoying an unusually high winner strike rate in the past few weeks and should always be considered.

7) Provide us feedback by mailing us at

Puzzle Of The Day

A new feature where we challenge you to see if you can use the tools we provide in BetTurtle to find the winner in this race, a race we think could spring a big price surprise as we have doubts about the favourite at this morning's prices. Mail us your thoughts/selection or tweet us @betturtle

View Fakenham 3.20 Race Card >>

Some clues to consider: The favourite in the race is Lee Side Lady who at this morning's prices is 5/2. It is lighty raced, travels 239 miles to the races for a trainer who has a 36% strike rate at the course and a jockey who has a 44% strike rate at the course. However, with a 153 day lay off to overcome, a slight step up in class and against some shrewd trainers and horses having first handicap runs you may decide it can be taken on at such a short price.


Yesterday's Results

A day of hitting the post again with some good winners and lots of placed horses on the website. Unfortunately both our NAP and NB tips lost. Our Win Value bet had a fatal fall when still in contention, but our each way value bet managed a place having run well. 

WINNERSWe had 5/9 successful back bets and 2/4 successful lay bets.
WINNERS: The website had 7 winners and 11 placed from 21 races yesterday. Winners included Mr Cosmopolitan 12/1 and Rogue Trader 11/2. 
PLACED: Cardinal Walter finished 3rd for our each way value bet
WINNERS: Our Shrewd Trainer feature (check for gold stars next to a trainer's name on a racecard) found Mr Cosmopolitan 12/1. 

Win Value Bet Results 

Naas 2.20 Carrigmoorna Rock Fell 9/4 SP (Recommended at 9/4) - raced in 3rd, closer order approaching straight, pushed along briefly to improve between horses before 2 out where fell

Each Way Value Bet Results

Musselburgh 3.00 Cardinal Walter 3rd 11/2 SP (Recommended at 11/2) beaten by 2.75 lengths - mid-division, headway approaching 2 out, challenged 2 out, soon led, headed after last, no impression on winner flat, lost 2nd towards finish

Win Value Bets

Our value bets highlight the horses we think have the best chance of winning at value prices (typically 2/1+). Our NAP is the bet we are most confident with and NB is our next best selection at prices better than odds on. The Lay Of The Day is the horse we think represents poor value and has the most realistic chance of being beaten today.

NB Musselburgh 2.30 Mumgos Debut 11/4 View BetTurtle Racecard
Remains a maiden after 15 attempts, but went close at Ayr last time and with doubts over main market rivals can finally get off the mark today.
NAP Wolverhampton 4.40 Seychelloise 3/1 View BetTurtle Racecard
1st or 2nd in all 7 races since the fitting of blinkers. A front runner who was slowly out of the stalls last time and was forced to race wide throughout. Better drawn today and if getting to the front will take all the beating.

Each Way Value Bets of the Day

Our each way bets are horses at decent prices (5/1+) we think can go close to winning.

No Bet Today

Back or Lay Tips

We review the chances of today's short priced runners with a view to backing or laying them. Our NAP is the bet we are most confident with and NB is our next best selection at prices better than odds on. The Lay Of The Day is the horse we think represents poor value and has the most realistic chance of being beaten today.

LAY OF THE DAY Musselburgh 1:00 Theatrical Style (IRE) 3/2 View BetTurtle Racecard
Looks more of a plodder and this drop back in trip not sure to suit, so worth taking on at this price.

BACK Fakenham 1:45 Vent Nivernais (FR) 15/8 View BetTurtle Racecard

May not be the most resolute of finishers, but travelled like the winner for most of the way over 20 furlongs at this course last time before running out of steam. This drop back to 2 miles looks ideal and should go close if putting it in at the end.

BACK Fakenham 2:50 Halo Moon 4/6 View BetTurtle Racecard

Course and distance winner who has won last two races and looks progressive. Can deliver the hatrick today.

BACK Wolverhampton (A.W) 3:40 Mindurownbusiness (IRE) 4/7 View BetTurtle Racecard

This drop back to 1 miles should suit and looks the class act in this race.

LAY Wolverhampton (A.W) 4:10 Binky Blue (IRE) 15/8 View BetTurtle Racecard

In form, but carries plenty of weight as a result. With a lack of pace the race could be tactically run which may not suit.

BACK Fakenham 4:20 Navanman (IRE) 4/6 View BetTurtle Racecard

Won well at Towcester last time and carries a 7lb penalty. Steps up another 2 furlongs today and should take this if in the same form.
