Daily tips will no longer be a feature of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, it was announced on Monday. The tips, which were read out during the sports bulletin each morning, had been a feature for over 40 years.

Presenter Amol Rajan said, “There’s no racing tips today because we have decided to break the tradition and reserve the tips for the biggest days on the racing calendar.

“We will very much continue to cover horse racing, as we do so many other sports, not least through interviews with leading lights in the racing world. And we will sometimes continue to broadcast from the big ticket events like the Grand National or Cheltenham Gold Cup week.”

A statement from the BBC added, “After careful consideration, we have decided to focus racing tips on the big races across the year.

“The Today programme remains committed to covering racing news and this will continue on the programme’s sports bulletins.”
