Major Racing Festivals – A Punter’s Dream Or Nightmare

The Cheltenham Festival, the Aintree Grand National, Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood are just a few of the major UK racing festivals that take place throughout the year where the very best horses compete for the large prize money on offer.

These festivals are very entertaining for spectators and racing enthusiast due to the sheer quality of the racing, but how do these major festivals look from a betting point of view?

They can be a bit of nightmare really. Let me explain…

Because the quality of the horses running at these festivals is so high you will be hard pressed to find a horse which doesn’t make a good case for winning a race and isn’t in with a chance of winning.

A trainer doesn’t enter a horse in race in a major racing festival just to give a run. All the horses are going to be racing to win.

This makes picking the winner of any of these races a lot trickier than picking a winner in races of lesser quality.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t have the odd bet on any of the races at these festivals so long as you believe they are good value bets.

But if your looking to take your betting seriously and turn a profit from it, the majority of your profits will not come from these major festivals.

The majority of your profits will come from consistently backing horses at value odds throughout the entire year.

If you need help in finding those value selections throughout the year, why not try out one or more of the tipsters in the Winners Odds tipster portfolio.
