January's Best Horse Racing Tipsters


Meet January's best horse racing tipsters

With 2023 now into its second month, Tipstrr are happy to present January's Best Horse Racing Tipsters, who represent the pick of those services to have hit the ground running during the first few weeks of the year.

Just click on the links for more information about each tipster, and for details of any trial offers that are currently available.

Please note: If you have previously enjoyed a trial with a particular tipster, then you are no longer eligible for any trial period offered by the same service.  

10th Shrewd Tips

136 tips, 26.4% ROI, £724 profit

Top winner: Buxted Too 16/1 

After welcoming Shrewd Tips back to our monthly leaderboards in November, it's now three straight top-10 appearances for a service that has graced the Tipstrr site since the back end of 2019. Recommending race winner tips at average odds in excess of 7/1, and achieving a 15% win rate while doing so, demonstrates a shrewd eye for value and an expert knowledge of the racing markets, cementing Shrewd Tips' reputation as one of Tipstrr's most reliable services.

9th Profitable Picks

46 tips, 39.9% ROI, £583 profit

Top winners: Fortified Bay 25/1, Sirius White 16/1

With a monthly ROI just shy of 40%, it is no disgrace to be near the bottom end of this monthly top ten, and especially for a tipster as consistent as Profitable Picks, who has suffered just two minor drawdown months since the start of last year to earn him a top-12 spot among 2022's best tipsters. He's at it again this year, kickstarting 2023 with another bumper month that saw him land six winners and nine each-way places from just 46 selections.

8th The Banker 

48 tips, 54.0% ROI, £518 profit

Top winners: Coaxing 18/1, Will Sting 16/1, Mehmo 12/1

 After finishing ninth on 2022's annual leaderboard, The Banker brought last year's success seamlessly into 2023, enjoying a 15% hit rate that is made all the more impressive by the fact that he only recommends race-winner tips at average advised odds exceeding 8/1. With all selections published in the same narrow time slot around 9pm the night before racing, this is an ideal service for anyone who likes to exploit enhanced early-bird prices and have plenty of time to place their bets.

7th Won Racing Tip

27 tips, 60.3% ROI, £650 profit

Top winner: Valirann Gold 66/1

Although it is Won Racing Tip that occupies eighth spot, a special mention should also go to its sister services Read Between The Lines (52 tips, 40% ROI, £830 profit) and Won Two Three Racing Tips (50 tips, 44% ROI, £870 profit), who work as a three-fold operation, with all three enjoying a bumper start to 2023. Won Racing Tip, as the name suggests, supplies just one daily nap selection that is cherry-picked from the other two more prolific services. Such a selective approach can mean patience is required between winners, but when WRT ended December with a 40/1 winner and began the new year by landing a 66/1 shot, then that patience might begin to seem worthwhile.

6th Irish Value

35 tips, 65.0% ROI, £910 profit

Top winners: Captain Jimmy 22/1, The King of Prs 10/1

No prizes for guessing where Irish Value prefers to focus his expertise, and his knowledge of the horse racing circuit across the Irish sea has been reflected in his best monthly return since the service first appeared on Tipstrr in April last year. A sedate tip output of between five and and ten selections per week should appeal to anyone with a more moderate betting appetite, as indeed should the half-dozen winners that included a tasty 22/1 shot to take monthly profits over the £900 mark. 

5th KensJumps 

44 tips, 68.4% ROI, £725 profit

Top winner: Real Stone 17/2

The fact that the top-price winner for KensJumps was just 17/2 belies a strategy that aims at identifying value towards the top end of the betting market - an approach that yielded an impressive 15 winners and three each-way places from just 44 selections. That amounts to a remarkable 42% hit rate, which at average advised odds of around 5/1 translates to a whopping 68% monthly ROI and over £700 in profit to level £20 stakes. 

4th The Daily Punt

56 tips, 73.0% ROI, £990 profit

Top winners: Real Stone 9/1 + Equinus 9/2 (double)

A quick read of the profile page of The Daily Punt describes a strategy that is based on his ability to identify horses whose prices are larger than their actual chances of winning. That is, of course, the simple definition of betting value, and this tipster found it in abundance during January, thanks to 15 tasty winners from 56 selections, including a tasty double at odds of 9/1 and 9/2 that earned almost £500 of his monthly gains on its own.

3rd 365 Tips 

94 tips, 84.0% ROI, Profit: £1,580 

Top winners: Benny's King 20/1, Clay Rogers 18/1, Xcitations 16/1

The first of our podium positions is occupied by 365 Tips, whose high-odds each-way service has featured regularly on our monthly leaderboards since he first graced the Tipstrr platform back in October 2019. Picking race-winner tips at prices more akin to the each-way market is a high-tariff approach that walks that tightrope between risk and reward. January fell very much the way of reward, and with 13 winners all priced 9/1 or higher, including 20/1, 18/1 and 16/1 shots, it's easy to see where that £1500 monthly profit came from.

2nd Statometer 

68 tips, 90.7% ROI, Profit: £1,278 profit

Top winners: Lake Takapuna 12/1, Our Follet 10/1

But for a couple of downward dips last summer, Statometer might well have topped 2022's Best emerging Tipster leaderboard, and the way the new year has begun suggests he will be another force to be reckoned with in 2023. Offering a diverse mix of race-winner, each-way and exotic combination bets, this varied service has just completed four straight profitable months, culminating in January's eye-catching 90% yield. On top of the 12/1 and 10/1 top winners, Statometer's ability to combine bets into lucrative exotic bets was rewarded when trixie at odds of 13/2, 4/1 and 8/11 put more than £400 into the betting bank.

1st Won By A Head 

68 Tips, 98.9% ROI, £1,344 profit 

Top winners: Ring Fenced 25/1, Papa Don't Preach 18/1, Kiwano 16/1

And so we unveil January's Best Horse Racing Tipster in the shape of Won By A Head, who has begun 2023 in exactly the same mouthwatering way that he concluded 2022. It was only in November that he last topped these very same rankings after recommended winners at 100/1, 50/1 and 33/1. January's winners might not quite have hit those dizzy heights, but six winners priced between 25/1 and 12/1 give a flavour of his eye for WBAH's eye for value. However, he doesn't just pluck out tasty outsiders, and is just as happy to look for value at the top of the market when the price is right. With a solid 15-20 tips per week, all published during the same convenient 15-minute mid-morning time-slot, your're left with a well-rounded, professionally-run and consistently lucrative service.

So, another year is under way with another month of tasty profits from some of our high-quality horse racing tipsters, with those listed above combining to produce over £9K in winnings to level £20 stakes. Indeed, the top three alone would have earned more than £4K in clear profit for anyone who followed their combined supply of 230 selections throughout January.

Congratulations again to Won By A Head for heading such a high-quality field, and we also appreciate the many other services who might not have made the frame this month, but who nevertheless remain a valued part of our ever-expanding Tipstrr community.  

*All profits calculated to £20 level stakes
