Star Columnist Profile - Tony Calvin

Star columnist Tony Calvin

Tony Calvin has been in the racing and tipping business for over 25 years, encompassing a 12-year stint at the Racing Post and an 11-year spell as Head Of Media at Betfair.

Every weekend Tony covers racing on ITV in-depth with his Saturday Racing Tips - a favourite column with punters, and a staple of our racing coverage, which goes live on Friday afternoons.

His antepost betting articles, which appear on Monday or Tuesday, give punters an early indication of his thinking about the following weekend's racing.

He also provides tipping previews for each day of every major meeting in the racing calendar.

Tony is regarded as one of the most knowledgeable and straight-talking members of the press room, both on horse racing and betting-related matters.

He will never place a bet for the sake of it, will always look for chances at long odds and won't recommend a bet if he isn't placing it himself. He knows about every course, runner, rider, trainer and yard, and if you combined his columns you'd have an encyclopaedia of modern British horseracing as well as a wealth of entertaining anecdotes.
