Horse Racing Tips Today – Saturday 24th August 2019 at York
1.50 at York – Bangkok to win at 13/2
The final day of York’s Ebor Festival gets underway with the Group 3 Strensall Stakes. The race is run over the slightly awkward distance of 1m1f. It may be neither one thing nor another but could be perfect for horses who have the pace to win over a mile but just need a little longer to get up to full speed or who just haven’t quite stayed 10f in the past.
Bangkok is one of those stuck between being a high class miler and a horse who can compete against Pattern company in the middle distances. That is as much due to the room for improvement that he has as anything. It won’t take much of a step forward for Andrew Balding’s three-year-old to win this at a generous 13/2 with Coral.
2.25 at York – Land Of Oz to win at 10/1
The Melrose Handicap isn’t on the same level as the Ebor Handicap that headlines the Saturday card at York but it is a highly competitive handicap that will take some winning. Land Of Oz is one of a number in the 13 runner field with a genuine chance of landing the health prize on offer. He comes into the race on an extended run of four straight wins and yet is still well treated by the handicapper. It’s a step up in class but one he can take in his stride with victory at 10/1 with BetVictor.
3.00 at York – Laurens to win at 5/2
Laurens is right up there with the most popular horses running at the Ebor Festival. Part of the four-year-old’s appeal is the number of big races that she’s won but for most racing fans it’s what she means to her owner John Dance and trainer Karl Burke that is most impactful.
Pictures of Dance celebrating Laurens’ successes in Group level races around Britain and France show what this sport means to owners and we could be treated to more heartwarming scenes at York on Saturday. Laurens has ample enough class to see off the competition in the Group 2 City Of York Stakes. There is no room for complacency but P J McDonald snapped a poor streak with Laurens last time out at Deauville and can partner her to another big win at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.
3.40 at Goodwood – Raheen House to win at 8/1
The Ebor Handicap became a £1 million race last year. The huge injection of cash saw higher calibre horses than ever entered into this 1m6f handicap. It’s still a tough, scrappy race which quality horses and even jockeys can easily get bullied out of but there is no doubt that those at the top of the weights are as good as anything ever seen in the Ebor before.
Raheen House is right up there in terms of quality for this year’s renewal. He’s more used to running in Group level races but should have no trouble landing the race that he’s been targeted at ever since joining William Haggas’ yard so back him at 8/1 with bet365.
We’ve got a selection of our best betting tips for today’s racing. This will usually be four or five tips but may be more or less depending on what our expert tipsters find for today’s horse racing.
We’ve made today’s tips nice and easy to find here at the top of the page. Beneath our top picks for today will be see the latest horse racing previews. These all include free racing tips as well as lots of analysis and pointers.
How do we select today’s tips?
Before you go piling into anyone’s betting tips for anything, be it horse racing or, heaven help you, Love Island, it’s good to know how those tips were “created”. We don’t have a crystal ball and we don’t have Grays Sports Almanac from Back To The Future 2 (which would be rather useless now anyway as it only events between 1950 and 2000!).
Our Racing Tipster Team
What we do have, however, is a small team of people who love racing. You might call them geeks, we prefer the term “people who love racing”. It sounds a bit less geeky. These are people who have been or are semi-professional gamblers, people who have been betting on the horses for more than 30 years and people who have worked in the industry for a long time.
What we Don’t Do
That said, we don’t promote these tips as a way to get rich. These racing tips and indeed all the racing tips provided on this site are intended to enhance your fun and improve your chances of winning.
We do not make any wild and unsubstantiated claims about the profit you could or would make. And we are not claiming you will win every bet. Of course, we do not go back and change our tips to make ourselves look better.
Some sites do all of those things and more in an effort to scam people and some even have the cheek to charge for their tips. But why would anyone give away guaranteed winners rather than just simply back the horses themselves? If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Oh, and we never charge you… all our horse racing tips are free and open to anyone who wants to read them.
Genuinely Free Racing Tips
Our tips are based on our genuine statistical analysis and subsequent thoughts on who will win the race in question. If you don’t know anything about racing they give you something to follow that should certainly give you a better chance of success than simply picking the name out of a hat.
On the other hand, if you do fancy yourself as a racing pro, they will hopefully back up your own analysis. Or they may give you an alternative viewpoint and help you reassess your own research.

How Much Should I Bet?
We make our tips with no strength of conviction rating, no NAPs and no bankers. All our tips for today’s horse racing action are fancied equally, other than in rare exceptions when we feel especially strongly about a given tip.
We give tips as either straight win bets or as each way bets and would recommend making the same total bet on either. That is to say, if you would bet £10 on a horse to win and our tip is each way, back it £5 each way.
In short, all of our racing tips are ones we have confidence in so your stake depends on what you are comfortable with and your own staking plan. Remember to only ever bet what you can afford to lose and always gamble responsibly. Gambling and betting on the horses should be fun.
Which Bookie Should I Use?
With any tip we will feature the highest odds selected from the best horse racing betting sites that we work with. Odds are fluid and can change quite quickly, especially as the race gets closer. Note that the odds we provide were correct at the time of publication.
Obviously you can back today’s tips with whatever bookie you want. So, if you just want to stick to your normal betting site, that’s fine but be aware the odds may well be different.
Join a New Betting Site and Claim a Free Bet
If the best odds on a given race and tip are with a bookmaker you don’t currently have an online account with then that’s great news. Just join and with all the top sites we feature here at RacingBettingOffers you’ll be able to claim some form of welcome bonus or one of the many horse racing free bets.
That freebie will often be a stake not returned free bet. That means that when you place a qualifying bet (Ts and Cs will apply) you’ll be given a free bet. The free bet is often the same amount as your first bet but is sometimes four times as big or occasionally even bigger!
So, for example, if you like one of our tips for today’s racing and bet £5 on it, you may then be credited with £20 of free bets. Those free bets should be credited in time to bet on tomorrow’s racing and with £25 of bets and just £5 of risk, you are obviously getting amazing value.
Lastly, just to explain, a stake not returned free bet means your free bet stake isn’t returned with winnings as a normal bet would be. A £5 bet at odds of evens returns £10. However a £5 stake not returned free bet at the same odds returns just the £5 profit.
