Tipster Interview Architect Horse Racing Tipster

The Architect is a horse racing tipster with a sound long term record of profitable success.

In this interview you can find out a bit more about what makes him tick.


What makes you different to any other Tipster?

I believe that, being a professional tipster, you need be dedicated, show full commitment and most importantly, show loyalty. Without sounding too bullish, those three things have got me to where I am today. I have seen many tipsters come and go with companies due to rash decisions made by themselves. However, I am the most trustworthy and most loyal tipster around, who puts in 110% effort to achieve the near impossible and I am always trying to find improvement day in, day out. I spend many hours to find the best possible outcome of a race. I take pride in my dream job and try to be the best at what I know I am good at. Obviously not everyone has the same opinion but I aim to provide the best value around and also, providing customers with many fantastic, big profitable days which has happened more times than I can remember.

Myself, being a tipster, I like to mix things up with NH racing and Flat racing, as we have had huge winners on both codes at double-figure odds. When we do have huge days, it is something that takes a lot of work to achieve and something that not many other tipsters can match – if you’re wanting to have the biggest profitable days around. Lastly, long-term success is where we are today, as we are now approaching the 400 point barrier mark. Being patient and having self-belief is how to achieve the goal of continuing success; no matter how stressful some situations can be. Even more so when you feel like everything is against you with a bad run of form or really bad luck with results etc. However, sticking to your guns will turn it in your favour and believing you are the best tipster around will really help your confidence, that’s what I believe.

Describe your normal day as a tipster, start to finish.

Starting nice and early, I have a refreshing shower. I will then have breakfast before turning on the laptop to begin studying for the next day’s racing. I’ll scan through each race meeting to see which races are class 4 or better as that is where the value will most likely be due to the better quality runners. Taking this into consideration, I try to avoid tipping any horse below class 4 company because this is where I believe is desperation comes into play and that is not what you want to be doing as a tipster. Most horses below class 4 level such as class 5/6 have beaten each other many times in the past so it is much harder to get a result or to get value from runners who are so inconsistent and have marks such as 50/60. So I’ll scratch away all of those lower grade races and make a quick note of the better graded races and go into detail on those, with a lot of in-depth analysis.

I won’t give out the way I select my horses because that would spoil the fun, but I try to find every angle possible to get the value out of the race. If I am not 100% happy with the selection, I will not tip them, it’s as simple as that. I must find a certain runner that ticks more boxes than the rest of the runners and watch previous replays, before I finally decide to give that horse out as a selection instead of just picking them for the sake of it, which is wrong and unnecessary to achieve long-term success. I spend many hours studying throughout the day on my laptop and mobile phone. Most of my studying as a tipster will be from early morning until the afternoon whilst I have my lunch and snacks in between. I will then look at bookmakers to see the odds before proceeding to upload all selections and prices.

Once tips are out and the text has been sent in the evening, I will then proceed to update the results sheet, keeping up to date with blogs etc that need to be uploaded before having a quick scan through the next day’s racing (24hrs in advance) looking at the news, website and emails to keep on top of everything before my day as a tipster has finished. Then repeat.

If you could ride one horse in any race in the world, who would it be and why?

On the flat, Battaash would have to be the one for me. Described as a “bat-mobile” by Jim Crowley, this sprint monster is so fast that I would love to ride him in the King George at Goodwood and get that same feeling as his rider did in winning the race twice. Imagine the feeling you would get compared to riding other sprinters, especially the way he quickens up with so many gear changes – it would take your breath away. I would guess it would be the same feeling as being on a rollercoaster or something like that and that would be a feeling you would never forget lightly.

Over jumps? Well this one would come as a huge surprise to many and probably won’t happen – unless connections did go down the route in March which I hope they will next year – and that is Douvan in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. He was an absolute superstar as a novice and he almost pulled off the performance of a lifetime at Cheltenham last year when coming back from a year on the sidelines in the Champion Chase, where he had the whole field strung out before unfortunately crashing out with four fences left to jump. He was turned over when last seen behind Un De Sceaux but, for me, he’s crying out for 3m+ these days because he doesn’t seem to have that turn of foot anymore. I think the gruelling test of 3m2f at Cheltenham would be right up his street as he’s a great jumper who takes lengths out of opposition at fences and would travel so well in this race. Stablemate Djakadam could never win the Blue Riband race but went close many times and I think Douvan is a better horse so he would be the one I would love to ride, especially in the biggest race of them all in the NH calendar.

Name a racecourse that you haven’t visited, but one that you want to visit and why.

Newcastle. I have always wanted to see the grade one Fighting Fifth Hurdle as some very high-class 2 mile hurdlers have won that prize down the years, and have gone on to perform really well in the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. It is a bit of a journey from where I am but one day I am determined to go there and possibly witness a Champion Hurdle winner!

Who is your favourite jockey and why?

Well, based on success and having my biggest priced winners with the company so far then it has to be Tom Scudamore as my favourite. He has provided me with so many winners in the past couple of years, notably when winning on Kingswell Theatre in a cross country chase at Cheltenham at odds of 33/1. He really is a talented individual who rarely gives a horse a bad ride and, to this day, he must be at the top of my list followed by Derek Fox and then David Bass, who are also two of my favourites in the saddle.

If you owned a horse what would you call it?

I would like my horse to stand out from the rest so I would call it “John Wick” named after the movie as the character is played by a great actor named Keanu Reeves and it is such a great movie. All based on intelligence, determination and firepower all rolled into one to create a monster of a racehorse! It would be quite hilarious to hear the commentator say the horses name in a race.

Why should people sign up to your services?​​​​​​​

Long-term profit is what I am all about and if you signed up to my service, you are sure to make a good second income at the very least. I am able to provide the biggest profitable days around which many can’t match and also some of the biggest winners across both the flat and jump racing, which is very hard to do. I am the most loyal, honest tipster who puts in so much effort into my work to provide the best service I can to customers and to tipsters empire. I spend many hours on blogs and selections to give people a really good read on why selections have been chosen and I go as far as visiting different stables to provide people the feeling of what it feels like to be up, close and personal to racehorses.

I take my job very seriously to achieve the best possible outcome as a professional horse racing tipster and I aim to be best at what I love doing. Selections range from all different odds whether it’s 7/4 or 40/1 as I aim to give out the best value I can find. My system has proven to be successful as the results speak for themselves and we are growing and growing with every stride so if you sign up to Architect Tips, follow all of my advice and selections and I can almost guarantee that you will make a healthy profit every year, looking back on some of the best winners you will ever likely to see in the horse racing industry.

Thank you,
