Punters have some handy apps to choose from if they want to make their horserace punting more enjoyable, or if they want to share the fun with friends. Here are some iPhone apps currently available in the Apple iTunes store.
Insider Tips provides best bets for Australian horse racing from form analysts. The app aims to give subscribers the inside run to punting profit. Selections are never provided for the sake of it – any tips uploaded to the app are expected to win.
Racetrack Ralphy provides horse racing form for Melbourne metropolitan meetings provided by form analyst Ralphy Horowitz and other experts handpicked by him. The app features include runner-by-runner analysis, overview of races, predicted speed, market assessments, all rounded off by suggested bets.
Information is continuously updated, including scratchings, announcements of change of tactics and how the track is playing. These can assist you in obtaining a market edge. It’s a premium service and not a tipping service: The “suggested bet” section doesn’t just seek to find winners, but the best available price.
Keep your friends in the picture
