TOP BETTING SITES

While we love horse racing and betting, we understand that the world of online betting sites can be a bit daunting. With so many sportsbooks vying for our attention, it can be difficult to determine which is the best to bet with. It’s also important to know that different betting sites will suit different bettors. Whether they are the established brands that you’re used to seeing on the high street, or one of the new betting sites that have entered the market, it’s not immediately obvious where your custom should go. That’s where we come in.

We’ve trawled through the best online betting sites in the UK. We’ve placed wagers with them, explored their apps, hunted around for their best offers, double-checked their security systems and streamed their live racing. As a result, you’ll be able to find the betting site that suits you and how you want to bet.

HOW WE REVIEW SPORTSBOOKS

Every betting site review has been written by a racing expert, experienced in betting, who uses the sportsbook as a customer. This ensures that their insight is clear and helps you make smarter decisions. It’s through their, and our, expert knowledge that we can share in-depth research and tell you what the experience is actually like, rather than simply summarising the product.

Instead of providing random ratings, we’ll tell you why a particular betting site is better than another and crucially, what betting sites do better than the rest. What sets one betting site apart from its competitors? What does a particular sportsbook do well, and what could it do better?

Every bettor is different and because of that we use our expertise to point you in the direction of a sportsbook that suits your style of betting. If the thing that interests you the most is the sign-up offer, we’ll let you know where the best one is. If it’s streaming international races, we’ll point you towards the best betting site for that. Or if you simply want the slickest app, we’ll show you who provides that. This is where, thanks to our team of racing enthusiasts, we provide you with the most helpful information possible.
