There are two reasons you shouldnt follow your newspaper tipsters selections.
1. There is no value. If you are following the Racing Post selections you are one of thousands (Between 40 and 90,000 read daily). The paper is on the wall of every bookies in the land and punters all over are betting their selections. Even if the horse has little chance it will still be well bet and the price will be below it's trye chance of winning. It's a similar situation with all the daily papers in the UK!
2. These tipsters in the main have to find a selection in every race. That includes those races where it looks like nothing can win it. Nobody would try and bet in every race on the card and expect to come out in front. As somebody great once said, you have to pick your battles. Only bet in races where you see something that gives you an advantage. Unfortunately we don't know which races our tipster has spent most time on or where he sees a real bet.
If you've got 10 minutes to spare today read this, it will make a difference to the way you read the Racing Post and will help you to get your nose in front.
I've had a small bet on Pat Sharp to win at 18.0 to add to my lasy of Mark Wright at 3.05. I know it's hard for latecomers to do well but Pat seems like winner material at the moment. Also Dougie Poynter is yturning out to be slightly more interesting than I imagined.
