Who am I? – Daryl Carter

Daryl Carter 


My name is Daryl Carter I am 30 years of age, I have been a Horse Racing fan for many years now. I contribute to The Racing Paper and The Sportsman online as well as a race day Tipster for The Jockey Club at Cheltenham racecourse talking in private boxes and inside restaurants to Jockey Club clients.

I am a race analysis and verdict writer for a National newspaper weekly and have a fair record tipping winners. I am a constant figure for The Racing Paper each week with my name published inside the paper on my verdicts.

I enjoy writing race analysis and previews searching for the next winner.

My selections have to meet rigorous criteria to become viable bets for organisations such as The Racing Paper and anyone else I work for. I have found in the past that my best results come from, Group 2 and 3 races along with listed races and Class 2 and 3 Handicaps.

Over the years I have found Class 4, 5 and 6 all to be unpredictable and will avoid these races in my own time unless there is a very strong indication for a winner at the right price. However, I will always examine each race as it comes – for instance working for the paper requires me to evaluate all sorts of racing from Class 6 selling events to Grade 1 Chase’s and feel I have the ability to analyse any race card put in front of me.

The older I get the more I appreciate the need for discipline when it comes to betting for all it may not seem like it on certain social platforms but my personal punting is more disciplined.

When I first started betting I would try and find as many bets as I could to watch as many races as possible. That did not work for me as I was loosing far more than I was winning. Picking the right bets is essential to long-term profitability and that is the goal on the tipping front for my customers. I REFUSE to fall into the category of other tipsters who seem to be able to advise 15 or more bets a day, if I find three that fit my criteria I would be lucky, however, that does not mean I don’t have an opinion on many different races’s as it is my job to search through each and every meeting, not so much during the week, but certainly on a Saturday.

I take my work very seriously and while my Twitter platform may be full of different opinions and reasonings all thoughts are my own and are simply opinions on races.

I would like to be judged on my work for The Racing Paper and for The Jockey Club opposed to many throwaway comments on Twitter because that is where the real work is done. Up in my office studying hard for a wide audience. I will always put my utmost effort into analysing any race to come out with a verdict. I am happy to offer any opinion on Twitter I may have to help anyone else along the way for free.

I am always asked, which do I prefer, Flat or National Hunt? tough to decide, I think from a betting perspective I find the flat much easier to predict. But the jumps racing really is where my passion lies and horses like Sprinter Sacre returning to win the Queen Mother at Cheltenham is what racing is all about.

I will always be honest when giving my opinion and I hope others are constructive with their criticism if things don’t go the right way.

The reason I give my information from my hard work out for free? Helping someone out by finding them a winner is a fantastic feeling! However, I do not have anything against those that charge, many people criticise tipsters that charge and if the tipping is done in the correct way then it will take up plenty of your time. I work every evening around my full-time job and on weekends so I can understand how people want to make money from their time. Too many people expect information for free these days but you wouldn’t expect that in any other walk of life.

I offer my opinion free on my twitter below, love sharing knowledge and talking anything Horse Racing related and you are more than welcome to join the chat.

Feel free to follow me, racing is a game of opinions and we all have one! @darylcarter7

P.s No one can love the mighty Altior as much as me and I will hear no more of this Min nonsense! Roll on Cheltenham
