The UK Racing Guide is a betting portal that focuses 100% on horse racing in the UK. The website is split into three main sections:
- Racing Tips - Expert tips and previews of the biggest races of the week, plus in depth coverage of all of the major festivals - such as Cheltenham and Ascot.
- Horse Racing Betting Sites - Reviews of some of the UK's best online betting sites and bookmakers displayed in a variety of formats including an at-a-glance list of free bets, a brief summary of each site and, of course, a full and detailed review.
- Racecourse Map - A map of all of the racecourses in the UK (specifically England, Wales and Scotland) with plans to add Ireland in the near future. For each racecourse there are location and contact details, and even a handy little widget to get directions from your house. This section is very much still in development and in time will also provide reviews of each course as well as information about facilities and costs.
Grand National Trial (Haydock Park) Preview & Betting Tips – Saturday 18th February 2017
With the Grand National just seven weeks away, what better way to get you in the mood than the three and a half mile Grand National Trial from Haydock? Several horses featuring this Saturday are entered for the showpiece event in April and seeing them in this preparatory race could prove to be very useful.
Betfair Ascot Chase (Ascot) Preview & Betting Tips – Saturday 18th February 2017
Won by some real smart sorts over the years, including the brilliant King George winners One Man, Kauto Star and Silviniaco Conti, Saturday’s Ascot Chase invariably attracts a high quality line up. We have an established superstar gong to post once again for the 2017 renewal in this 2m5f contest. 17 fences face our competitors, with £150,000 in total prize money on offer.
Irish Gold Cup Chase (Leopardstown) Preview & Betting Tips – Sunday 12th February 2017
A real thriller looks to be in store this Sunday at Leopardstown. Should the current acceptors line up on the day we will have one of the most stamina laden fields of the season to date. Every ounce of that staying prowess is likely to be needed in order to prevail, as three miles around here on soft ground will certainly take its toll.
Betfair Hurdle (Newbury) Preview & Betting Tips – Saturday 11th February 2017
Another fine weekend of racing action to look forward to with Newbury providing the pick of Saturday’s cards. Three Graded contests are on offer at the Berkshire venue, with this fiercely competitive handicap looking the pick from a betting perspective. A smart performance here has been enough to catapult a runner into the Champion Hurdle picture in the past, and with that race looking so open this year we may well see the winner of this lining up for the big one in March. With plenty of rain in the area, we are looking set for soft ground on Saturday.
Irish Champion Hurdle (Leopardstown) Preview & Betting Tips – Sunday 29th January 2017
A truly exceptional weekend of National Hunt racing action continues into Sunday, as Leopardstown plays host to an excellent card, with this two-mile, Grade 1 hurdle taking centre stage. If Willie Mullins’ current winning streak continues for much longer, the race’s organisers may have to give some thought to renaming the event in his honour.
Cheltenham Trials Day (Cheltenham) Preview – Saturday 28th January 2017
Always one of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures prior to the big spring festivals, this year’s trials day at Cheltenham has been further bolstered by the addition of key Champion Chase trial, the Clarence House Chase.
Sky Bet Handicap Chase (Doncaster) Preview & Betting Tips – Saturday 28th January 2017
It’s off to South Yorkshire this coming Saturday, as Doncaster plays host to one of the major National Hunt contests of its season. The Sky Bet Chase once again looks set to attract an ultra-competitive field. The ground at the track is currently described as good, and with not much rain in the area that shouldn’t change much come race day.
Coral.IE Leopardstown Handicap Chase (Leopardstown) Preview & Betting Tips – Sunday 22nd January 2017
It’s off to Ireland once again for this Sunday’s big handicapping action. Won last year by Colm Murphy’s Empire of Dirt, who is now being mentioned as a Gold Cup possible in some quarters, this race has thrown up a number of smart performers over the years. The ground at the track is currently described as good to yielding, and with the weather set fair heading into the weekend, that shouldn’t change too much come Sunday.
Berkshire Community Foundation Clarence House Chase (Ascot) Preview & Betting Tips – Saturday 21st January 2017
Plenty for National Hunt fans to savour this coming Saturday, with no fewer than seven Graded contests spread across the Ascot and Haydock cards. The pick of the bunch comes at Ascot, with the sole Grade 1 of the day, the Clarence House Chase. Won by racing luminaries such as Desert Orchid, Master Minded and Sprinter Sacre in its time, this race has come to be recognised as one of the key trials for Cheltenham’s Queen Mother Champion Chase.
Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase (Fairyhouse) Preview & Betting Tips – Sunday 15th January 2017
The best of Sunday’s racing cards this weekend comes over in Ireland where we have some excellent handicapping action in store. The pick of the bunch is this 2m1f Grade A event. First run at Punchestown in 2013, we once again have a competitive field assembling, including the third and fifth placed runners from 12 months ago. The powerful yards of Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott are of course represented, but a number of the smaller yards also look to have a very real chance of success.
