Daily ante-post betting tips
For sports books, gauging the correct odds for a horse race is something that’s done with a huge amount of care and consideration. Getting it wrong has the potential to lose a sports book millions of pounds after all, if keen-eyed horse betting experts spot a price that’s way more generous than it ought to be.
You can ‘beat the bookies’ by betting ante post on the events where ante post betting is available. This is the time when you’ll have the most generous prices available, as sports books have yet to finalise realistic prices based on up-to-the-moment factors.

How do we choose our ante post tips?
To be able to come up with ante post tips, you really need to live and breathe horse racing. Ante post odds are usually given long before the event they are in relation to takes place, so unless you’re a horse racing expert, making ante post tips is no more accurate than throwing darts at a list of names.
Ante post bets are usually only available at ‘big’ races and meeting, such as the Grand National or the Cheltenham festival. We make sure we perform all our due diligence when it comes to ante post tips for such races, giving you accurate tips that are really worth backing.
What is ante-post betting?
Ante post betting is simply betting on a race some time before the actual race takes place. This is like betting on the winners of the EPL before a single ball has been kicked, or the winner at Wimbledon before the ball boys have even been chosen.
Usually, odds for races are only released a few days before the event, but for bigger events and meetings sports books will give out odds weeks or even months in advance. Such odds are usually more beneficial to the horse racing bettor than odds given close to the day that the race actually comes under starters orders.
How to back an ante-post tip
You must bear in mind that ante post bets are only available for specific races and meetings and not all sports books will offer ante post betting. In order to back an ante post tip you may have to open an account at a new sports book if your current online bookie does not offer such bets. We have plenty of recommendations for the sites you should use, so don’t despair.
A sports book should have an ‘ante post’ section where you’ll be able to find meetings with ante post options. Just find the tip among the list of available selections and add to your betting slip.
When do we post our ante-post bets?
When a bookmaker releases ante post betting odds, we go to work straight away, evaluating the chances of each horse of being the one to romp home in first place. You really do need a great deal of knowledge about horse racing in order to make successful ante post betting tips, as so much of the event remains unknown – the riders of each horse (although, based upon the owner and trainer of each horse we’re able to make an educated guess) and the condition of the course, for example.
We work as quickly as we can to get ante post betting tips out to you, so expect our tips to be available far in advance of race meetings and events taking place.
We’ve also got all of today’s racecards available, if you want to back any runners today.
