UK Horse Racing is a racing information service which offers unique, powerful and unequalled ratings, selections and data for the serious racing bettor and enthusiast.

UK Horse Racing have been continually producing Quality Horse Racing Ratings since 1999. Our ratings are published daily for all horse racing within the British Isles.

The UK Horse Racing site has been growing in popularity for a number of reasons; there's a friendly discussion community and also those who handicap for themselves appreciate our exceptional and unique ratings as a good source of information.

How Have We Done This?

When we created UK Horse Racing the aim was to beat the handicapper by looking at horse racing analysis in a different light.

The real target is the Official Handicapper and the other bettors who, together, help make the markets.

We're targetting the other bettors by having a limited membership list to UK Horse Racing. By small, I mean numbers in low double digits. By keeping the numbers down we're keeping our methods to ourselves.

In our approach we don't use the Official Ratings at all. We don't use the commonly accepted Weight For Age tables which have been in use since time immemorial; we make our own.

Most importantly, we don't use the official race classifications; we use our own race class indicators.

In other words, we've analysed what can be analysed and then rebuilt everything from scratch to produce something quite different to what is the accepted practice of horse racing analysis.

And the Result?

A unique set of ratings which are strong, reliable, very much different and more effective to anything else produced conventionally.

Value Betting

UK Horse Racing is a highly regarded resource for those who wish to undertake what is known as Value Betting.

If one reads books written by the likes of Dave Nevison or any other professional gambler about their methods then it soon becomes apparant that the underlying theme is 'Value Betting'.

Simply put, it's getting on a horse to win at a better price than its calculated percentage chance suggests.

It's like rolling a fair six-sided die. If one were offered 9/2 on a six coming up then one would be foolish to take the bet. But, on the other hand, if one were offered 11/2 on a six coming up then, rightly, there should be a queue around the block to take on what should be a 5/1 bet.

Of course, not every value bet will come off. All it means that the eventual payout will more than compensate for the losing bets.

What is important is the golden rule: if one doesn't have a value advantage in a bet then don't take it. No bet should ever be taken without an advantage (what is known as 'the edge').

I have written a little about it here in the section called Malcolm's Method.
