Tubular tyres: training or racing

Hi all,

I've been riding tubular rims for about two years now on various vintage builds. I've had a variety of tyres including gators, continental giro, vittoria rally, vittoria evo...

Could someone tell me what the difference is between a training tyre and a race tyre? Are training tyres more puncture resistant? And for me, average cyclist, few long rides etc. which is a better option? I expect to pay about no more than 40 for a tyre.
