ITV Racing Tips

Cheltenham 1:30 Jlt Novices' Chase (Grade 1) (Registered As The Golden Miller) (1) 5yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  6  Politologue 13/2
Offers a bit of value compared to the first two in the market having benefitted for the fitting of a first time hood last time. His jumping is his main asset and he should go well for the Champion Trainer.  

Cheltenham 2:10 Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle (Listed Race) (1) 5yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  23  For Good Measure 10/1
Has finished second over course and distance in 2 of last 3 starts and can go well for these shrewd connections with further improvement a distinct probability. The yard won this in 2014.  

Cheltenham 2:50 Ryanair Chase (Grade 1) (Registered As The Festival Trophy) (1) 5yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  3  Empire Of Dirt 3/1
Has only had the two runs since winning a Grade 3 at this meeting last year and his 2nd placed finish in the Irish Gold Cup, beaten by Sizing John, rates decent form. He looks the pick of the Gigginstown pair.  

Cheltenham 3:30 Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle (Grade 1) (1) 4yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  12  Unowhatimeanharry 3/2
Has won last 8 starts and has beaten most of these on multiple occassions. Rates the JP McManus number one in this race and will take all the beating.  

Cheltenham 4:10 Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase (Grade 3) (1) 5yo+  
View BetTurtle Racecard
racecard silks  10  King's Odyssey 28/1
Lightly raced course and distance winner who is likely to be better than he has shown to date. Worth an each way interest at a decent price for a yard whose only other previous runner is this race was placed.  

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  4  Ballymountain Boy 5/2
  Towcester    2:35  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Makes handicap debut having shown promise in both hurdles races to date. Open to improvement and can go well.

racecard silks  5  Let's Dance 15/8
  Cheltenham    4:50  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Same connections won this last year and choice of stable jockey Ruby Walsh. Looks to have a leading chance.

racecard silks  13  Premier Bond 16/1
  Cheltenham    5:30  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Looks the best of Nicky Henderson's four runners in this, having won both starts since the fitting of cheekpieces and remains unexposed and open to improvement. The booking of Sam Waley-Cohen is an added attraction.

racecard silks  3  Ligeti 9/4
  Dundalk (A.W)    6:00  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Just missed out in hat trick attempt latest, but this step up in trip can eek out more improvement.

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  8 Yorkhill  3/2
  Cheltenham    1:30  View BetTurtle Racecard
  A chaser of potential, but is quirky with it and his jumping is a concern around here with a tendency to make mistakes and jump left. With the Willie Mullins yard in a bit of a doldrum this week so far, worth taking on.

racecard silks  2 Hurricane Rita  11/10
  Hexham    1:45  View BetTurtle Racecard

racecard silks  5 Sunset Marquis  1/1
  Hexham    2:25  View BetTurtle Racecard

  Towcester    3:15  View BetTurtle Racecard

racecard silks  12 Unowhatimeanharry  3/2
  Cheltenham    3:30  View BetTurtle Racecard
  Has won last 8 starts and has beaten most of these on multiple occassions. Rates the JP McManus number one in this race and will take all the beating.

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.
