Best horse racing Handicappers at OLBG.

Since 2002 OLBG has been growing an army of betting experts. We have a particularly strong group of horse racing Handicappers, perhaps attracted by our sponsorship of Horse Racing in the UK or maybe the thousands of dollars in prize money we give away every month.

Either way, we would challenge you to find a better group of horse racing handicappers providing their expert knowledge for free. In fact, don't bother, just look at the impressive stats below! Click on a handicapper's name for more detail and their horse racing picks for today.

About Horse Racing Handicappers at OLBG

On this page, you will find our most successful horse racing handicappers who currently have picks available. Each racing handicapper who is showing a profit for the past twelve months and has an open horse racing pick will be displayed above.

These will be ordered by the most profitable horse racing handicappers based on their annual profit.

With each horse racing handicapper, you have the annual profit, trends, and strike rate as well as 7 & 30-day profits. Click on the handicapper's name to see much more info and any picks they have available which haven't run yet today.

Each racing pick they have open will be displayed on this page along with plenty of information. You are given the event time, the pick, whether it is a Win or Eachway pick and detailed reasoning for the pick.

We encourage our handicappers to provide reasoning alongside their picks as this helps users to decide if they want to follow the pick or not and also helps people to learn more about why our experts are making their predictions. 

The Best Horse Racing Handicappers

Best is subjective but the great thing about OLBG is that we have lots of expert horse racing experts to choose from so whatever you decide is best, we will have handicappers for you to follow. 

Are you looking for consistent winners? Do you enjoy the thrill of shouting home outsiders? Do you want a combination of consistency and value bets?

Do you want to learn how to find winners yourself and therefore want a horse racing expert who explains their methods?

Whichever you decide, we are confident that our top handicappers rate amongst the best horse racing handicappers on the planet.

The Most Consistent Horse Racing Handicappers

Top handicappers for horse racing often boast great consistency. They are able to find winners regularly who defy their odds. It takes a lot of knowledge and skill to make a profit month in and month out and any element of luck is diminished with consistency.

This is why we provide lots of stats for you to assess how consistent our horse racing handicappers are. On this page, you will see annual trends which show the level of profit or loss by month over the past 12 months. 

Some people like to use the annual strike rate to indicate a handicapper's consistency. This isn't necessarily as good a measure though. Some of the best handicappers have a low strike rate but are able to consistently find good value winners from runners at higher odds.

The strike rate is useful depending on your outlook on losing runs. If you don't like long losing runs then choose an expert with a higher strike rate but expect more picks at lower odds of course. If you like the thrill of shouting home outsiders then a handicapper with a lower strike rate may be for you. 

For more info on our horse racing handicapper consistency click through to their profile page by clicking on a handicapper's name above. Then as well as the 12-month profit trend, you will also see daily profits as well as other related stats.

How do OLBG Handicappers Find These Great Bets?

We can't reveal all our horse racing handicappers' top secrets here! Or maybe we can. Once you start following our handicappers and reading their reasoning with each pick, you will start to learn why they make the selections that they do.

If you are keen to become a horse racing handicapper yourself or just want to improve your racing knowledge then join OLBG for free. You will get regular emails highlighting the great content on the site and you will be able to start looking through the thousands of pages of content.

Our betting school is a great place to start if you are wanting to learn more about betting on horse racing. Our forum is where our horse racing experts hang out and often reveal some real gems when discussing strategies around betting on horses.

The knowledge of our horse racing handicappers is amazing. Some compile their own speed ratings, others prepare tissue prices for every race, and some have other systems and processes for identifying great bets.

Take a look around the forum and blogs and you will start finding great info. Also, feel free to ask away. The friendly community which OLBG has built is always welcoming. 

Newspaper horse racing handicappers, paid services and professional handicappers.

Firstly, why would you want to pay for horse racing picks when there are such great free picks available at OLBG? Whilst some paid horse racing handicappers out there are good, genuine, and offer a great service, unfortunately, there are shady so-called horse racing handicappers around too. These range from just being bad but marketing themselves as good to complete con artists. Our advice has always been not to pay for picks.

Newspaper handicappers wouldn't have their jobs if they weren't good at tipping (surely?). There may be some exceptions, but generally, they are very knowledgeable about horse racing. However, they have many constraints. Working to tight deadlines they are often asked to provide a pick on every race, every day! Horse racing handicappers at OLBG have much more flexibility, they can pick and choose the races, courses, and even days they pick on.

They can go for several days without tipping if they can't find any great bets. Being selective is a golden rule to providing consistently good bets as a horse racing expert. So why follow handicappers who aren't or can't be selective?

You often see the question who are the best horse racing handicappers on Twitter? thrown around, whilst there are many talented handicappers on Twitter, we again wonder why you would want to go anywhere other than OLBG when everything you are looking for is right here!
