Horse Racing Tipster Services - Should You Pay Or Not?
You are sure to find many horse tipster services on the internet to help with your horse racing. You will notice that most of these services are subscription based, where you have to pay a monthly fee. So if you are wondering if it is worth or necessary to pay these fees, read on to find out how it is possible to sort the good tipster from the bad and whether you have to pay for their services.
As you may have seen, there are literally hundreds of horse racing tipster services on the internet today. The majority of these tipster services are subscription based, meaning you pay a monthly fee, but are they worth it?
In this article, I aim to help you sort out the good ones from the bad ones, by giving you some pieces of advice that should help you form an opinion of the tipster, either good or bad.
Why Pay For Horse Racing Tips?
Interesting question this one, and one that I get asked a lot, particularly by people who are interested in my horse racing club. Well, the bottom line is, yes I believe that it is worth paying for quality horse racing tips - as long as they are just that, quality racing tips.
The problem is that nowadays anyone can throw up a website, write a compelling, convincing story and have punters subscribing to their 'reliable' horse racing tipster service tomorrow. So how do you determine who is genuine and who is not?
Can You Trial The Racing Tipster For Free?
One thing that you can do is see whether or not the tipster offers or is willing to offer you a free trial of their service. This would give you the opportunity to see how you fare while using their service during the free period.
If the racing tips they were giving you were not very good, simply cancel and look at another service. There is always a chance that the tipster is in fact reliable and that they just happened to have an off week, but this is the chance that you’re taking.
You can repeat this process until you find a horse racing tipster who is both reliable and suits your style of betting. You can also do more homework if you like, such as emailing them some questions.
Do They Have A Track Record?
You could perhaps ask them some questions to determine how long they've been a racing tipster, how they first became interested in horse racing, what their favourite racecourse is, and so on.
These types of questions help you establish some credibility. So for example, if you asked me these questions, I would say that I've officially been a racing tipster since 2003, and that horse racing has been a passion for a very long time - more than 35 years now. I am also lucky enough to live near two of my favourite racecourses; Chepstow and Cheltenham.
Any reputable tipster should also be able to tell you exactly how they've performed each month since they've been advising selections, so this is definitely a question worth asking. If they claim that they never have losing horses, they're probably not being truthful, as the sad fact is that we all do - it's simply part of this great sport unfortunately.
I hope this gives you some help in what to look for and what to do in terms of finding a suitable, reliable horse racing tipster service.
Ultimately many people look upon paying for a service as an investment, rather than an expense. I'm sure some people would say that I am bound to say that a I run my own tipster service, but the fact of the matter is that I was once where you are now, so I know the pitfalls.There are some very good, genuine tipsters out there and although there are some unreliable, not so genuine ones too, the tips in this article should help you sort out who can trust and who you cannot
