Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some familiar faces with bumper eight race cards set for Rockhampton racecourse up north and Wyong racecourse in NSW and we come off the back of a pretty all over the show set of meetings where our Wednesday tips and best bets tips got unlucky to not grab any winners so I am determined to hit back hard tomorrow. I have run through both cards extensively and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as where you can get the best odds for these picks across the horse racing betting sites . There will be a few promotions going around across our betting apps this Wednesday. I have outlined those and highlighted them below the tips as to get an edge on the bookies. It should prove to be a solid Tuesday of racing to kick the week off in a good way and I am keen to get some winners!

Best Tip: Rockhampton - R5 - #1 - Nasha

Competitive field here but I think that the Clinton Taylor trained Nasha should be afforded every chance here from the low draw, with a dynamic run style and a nice early bounce. She came to the stable earlier this year from Rob Heathcoate and hasn’t put in a bad performance in four outings for the stable with a win and two close placings in four runs. Her last run came here over the 1600m where she did a bit wrong in the run, racing greenly and being caught wide and still had the guts to power home into second. She’s hard fit now and with the big jockey upgrade to Butler, he should have what it takes to sharpen her manners up for this assignment. Go close.

BEST OF THREE TOTES

*The Best Tote bet type pays bettors the highest dividend declared by the three national totes. The VIC TAB, NSW TAB and UBet. This likely means that there aren't fixed odds available at the time of writing this on that bookmaker and there likely will be.

Best Roughie: Wyong - R6 - #2 - Allhallowtide

You would imagine that Allhallowtide is going to have a big showing only second up now off a decent 14 week spell for John O’Shea. He resumed at Kembla Grange just over two weeks ago over the 1500m where he was bumped at the start, recovered into fifth and peeled out four wide on the turn to start a huge and eye-catching run home to finish third, beaten a length only. He ran very well in his debut prep when second up and looks to have a lot of class about him. He gets a 3kg claim from Bourke and gets in at just 56kg and maps to park just behind the speed which compliments his run style and will be launching late. Very keen on his chances.

Stats and Insights

  • Rockhampton has a near 600m home straight which mimics a lot of the metro tracks in that backmarkers have plenty of chances to come on so don’t discount those outside barriers or sitting style runners tomorrow at the course.
  • The Wyong racecourse is near circular, offering runners with more dynamic run styles and those that handle bendy tracks a big advantage, also gives those close to the rail an advantage in sprints
  • John O’Shea is one of the top trainers at Wyong, with a bunch of his horses being trained in the area, he sends two horses to the course tomorrow and I assume they are being placed with intent so watch for them.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions have historically been a great way for bettors to gain an advantage over betting sites by providing an edge to your bet. For racing specifically these promotions can be extensive in providing you some form of ‘outs’ to your bet that you wouldn’t normally receive.

Palmerbet, in recent weeks, has stood out to me across the Aussie betting sites that offer racing promotions and is one that I would take a look at, especially for big race days that feature Group 1 races and Saturday’s in general. 

On our site we have a Palmerbet Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as a  Vicbet and Punterspal review amongst some of the other top bookmakers that frequently have promotions.

Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
