ITV Racing Tips

Doncaster 1:50 Betbright Casino Handicap Hurdle (0-145) (2) 4yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  8  Markov 5/1
Ran a promising race at this course in January. He remains unexposed and looks set to show significant improvement upped to 3 miles for handicap debut.  

Newbury 2:05 Betway Supporting Greatwood Veterans' Handicap Chase (Qualifier) (Leg 3 Of Veterans' Chase Series) (0-150) (2) 10yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  4  Harry Topper 4/1
3 from 3 at this course on soft going and can go close today.  

Doncaster 2:25 Betbright Handicap Chase (2) 5yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  6  Theatre Flame 4/1
Beaten less than a length last time at Leicester having been short of room in a driving finish. Should be in the mix.  

Newbury 2:40 William Hill "High 5" Supporting Greatwood Handicap Hurdle (0-140) (3) 4yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  4  Remiluc 14/1
His last race may have come to soon for him following a promising return to hurdling at Fontwell in January when beaten a half length into second. Worth another chance at a decent morning price.  

Doncaster 3:00 Betbright Mares' Novices' Hurdle (Listed Race) (1) 4yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  6  Taws 5/1
Ran well to finish 2nd at Exeter latest over a trip on the short side. Open to improvement stepping up to 3 miles for the first time for this shrewd yard.  

Newbury 3:15 William Hill "High 5" Supporting Greatwood Gold Cup Handicap Chase (Grade 3) (1) 5yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  3  Oldgrangewood 4/1
3 from 4 over hurdles (unlucky to have been brought down in a race) and is open to further improvement. Can rise to the challenge stepping up in grade.  

Doncaster 3:35 Betbright Grimthorpe Handicap Chase (2) 5yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  1  The Last Samuri 5/1
Won this race last year and can go close off a 12lbs higher mark.  

Win Value Tips

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.
racecard silks  6  Theatre Flame 4/1
  Doncaster    2:25  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Beaten less than a length last time at Leicester having been short of room in a driving finish. Should be in the mix.

racecard silks  1  Hartside 9/4
  Doncaster    4:45  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Announced a return to form when heavily gambled and just beaten at Carlisle latest. Compensation awaits.

racecard silks  5  Synodic 2/1
  Lingfield (A.W)    5:30  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Won well at this course latest and can go in again up another 2 furlongs in trip.

Back or Lay Tips

We review the chances of today's short priced runners with a view to backing or laying them. The Lay Of The Day is the horse we think represents poor value and has the most realistic chance of being beaten today.
racecard silks  1 Reivers Lad  10/11
  Kelso    2:15  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Easy winner at Kelso latest and trainer has plans to run him in graded company, so can prove too good for today's rivals.

racecard silks  2 Viserion  11/8
  Kelso    2:15  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Won at Carlisle latest, but doesn't look to have as much potential as today's main market rival.

racecard silks  8 Miss Mirabeau  11/8
  Lingfield (A.W)    3:10  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Ran well on debut to finish 4th at this course earlier this month and can build on that stepping up in trip.

racecard silks  5 Kings Bandit  4/7
  Navan    3:55  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Hasn't won since 2014 and not one to be taking a short price on.

racecard silks  1 Tenor Nivernais  10/11
  Kelso    4:00  View BetTurtle Racecard
  All the way winner by 30 lengths at Ascot last time and will take the beating with similar tactics today.

racecard silks  3 Boagrius  1/1
  Doncaster    4:10  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Bumper winner who may not have stayed when finding little, having travelled well, on hurdling debut at Ludlow. Should go close with that experience under his belt and dropping back in trip.

racecard silks  5 Second Thought  11/8
  Lingfield (A.W)    4:20  View BetTurtle Racecard
  2 from 2 on the all weather and looks open to further improvement with the step up to 7 furlongs sure to suit.

racecard silks  1 Texas Jack  2/1
  Navan    5:05  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Stylish winner at Fairyhouse latest and will take a bit of beating with a repeat performance today.

racecard silks  7 Maria's Benefit  5/4
  Doncaster    5:20  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Finished 2nd over course and distance on debut last month and looks the one to beat here.

racecard silks  2 Ray's The Money  1/1
  Newcastle (A.W)    7:45  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Has proved a little frustrating with 3 seconds in 4 runs. Worth another chance with doubts surrounding today's rivals.

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. If you are using BetTurtle on your mobile, turn your phone to landscape mode to read tables with data more easily.
  2. On any racecard, click the STATS and FORM buttons to see a wealth of information that can help you further. We highly recommend you look around the many tabs and tables, as this is a 'goldmine' of information to help you find winners. You can sort the tables by clicking the arrow next to the column headings.
  3. On any racecard, Click the horses name to see details of last 3 runs.
  4. On any racecard, Click the Form button and click the race date to see the top 3 runners, how the race has worked out and view the racecard.
  5. Hot trainers and jockeys (names with RED backgrounds) have a high winner strike rate in the past few weeks and should always be considered.
  6. The racecard 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).
  7. Pay attention to our horseshoe ratings and picks/rankings, as one of our Top 3 Horseshoes wins 64% of all races. Click on the STATS button and select the HORSESHOES tab for a live summary view of the horseshoe picks/rankings based on form, current odds and racecourse vibes. You can follow our live ratings in race card order here during the racing day.
  8. 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.
  9. In the main, avoid cold trainers and jockeys (names with BLUE backgrounds) unless there is market support (GREEN market horseshoe).
  10. The free tips we provide often win at decent prices and currently have a 28% strike rate. Whilst we would love to help make you a profit, we don't guarantee it and only bet what you can afford. Be wary of our win tips if the market horseshoe is RED.
  11. Familiarise yourself with the information available under our Pointers menu. This can give you lots of clues to winner finding.
  12. Use the powerful Horse Search feature. Use the search bar to type in and filter by horse, jockey and trainer name. Use the arrows beside each column header to sort the data. Is is great to find where trainers are sending their horses, what rides jockeys have at a meeting, etc.
  13. If you want more hints and tips, new BetTurtle feature announcements and some additional tipping info subscribe to our newsletter by filling in your details in the big red box below.
