As the world’s one and only The Wine Tipster, Neil uniquely combines his successful career in the wine and bubbly trade with his extensive horse-racing knowledge. He believes that racing and hospitality go hand in hand, and has made it his mission to share this with both industries.
Since 2014 Neil has worked for The Jockey Club as a tipster and resident sommelier writing articles on wines, spirits and soft drinks for the races. He also works with Jockey Club Catering as a broadcaster and presenter in restaurants on race days, working alongside Chefs to develop wine lists, engaging with guests, and championing racecourse hospitality to the media. He also regularly presents at Ascot, the QATAR Goodwood Festival, and the York Ebor Festival.
Neil also brings his charismatic presenting skills and expert knowledge of hospitality to the racing world as a regular on ITV Racing, Racing TV, talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 Radio, Sky Sports News, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, and Channel 4, and has recently shared racing and wine tips with Nick Luck for Luck on Sunday:
As The Wine Tipster, Neil provides tips for all the top race meetings in his Unibet Racing Blog (which he has been doing on a weekly basis since 2018). His own The Wine Tipster Blog is also regularly updated with wine recommendations, horses to follow, and how to celebrate race meetings in person or at home.
Recently, Neil has joined the wonderful team at Racing Welfare as an Ambassador for the charity, promoting their work with the British horseracing workforce by acting as a voice for hospitality and staff wellbeing in the racing industry.
Further indulging his love of racing, Neil is a partner in the successful racing syndicate My Racing Manager, created by Elli Morgan. The syndicate has had two Cheltenham Festival winners with Coo Star Sivola and Flying Tiger, and has horses with Dan Skelton, Philip Hobbs, and Venetia Williams. Currently, Funambule Sivola, trained by Venetia Williams and ridden by Charlie Deutsch, has won 4 chases from 7 starts and finished 2nd in the Grade One Novices’ Chase at Aintree behind Shishkin. He has a very exciting future ahead of him. The Wine Tipster is also looking forward to seeing Hermes Du Gouet race soon having won his sole point to point race. Please get in touch with Neil if you would like more information on becoming a syndicate member.
