I'm looking for a Horse Racing Tipster to join the Nag Nag Nag Blog beginning at the Cheltenham Festival 2022.
This will be a paid position and will initially be for a period of 3 months.

To find this person I will be running a Tipster competition that starts in January 2022!

It's open to anyone, of any sex, from anywhere in the world as long as you are aged 18 or over (proof of age may be required).
