Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Goulburn racecourse and Moonee Valley racecourse this Friday for some great cards and we have what looks like it’s shaping up to be a very solid evening of horse racing. I have gone through both of the cards extensively and posted full length free horse racing tips on our site. In addition to those tips there is also an exotics tips article and our recently launched multibets tips article so be sure to check those out. In this article I have picked out my best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two of them. I’ve also outlined our best promotions across the aussie betting sites. In the final part of the article you should find some helpful track insights for both the racecourses which should assist your horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Friday! 

Best Tip: Goulburn - R2 - #1 - Opal Fields

I don’t like betting horses that are under $1.70 odds and you will rarely catch me doing something like this but I do think that Opal Fields just blows these out of the water and is a nice way to start building a bank roll early on. He won first up over this trip at Newcastle before stepping out at this track and trip where he was only beaten by one after missing the jump. With a clean jump here he blitzes the field.

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: Moonee Valley - R7 - #4 - Indian Pacific

Indian Pacific should be getting to his peak here for Nick Ryan after two very solid runs with the latest being in the Rubiton where he tried very hard from up on the speed but just couldn’t get there when placing just behind Kallos. I’m not convinced that 1200m is his striking distance but I think that with hard fitness, a solid gate and good steering he has to rate as a chance here.

Stats and Insights

  • There is a very clear frontrunning bias at Moonee Valley even up until the staying distance of 2000m+, when considering between two selections see where they map to be in the run.
  • Goulburn Racecourse features a 400-metre home straight and is generally regarded as a fair track and offers good runs all turns.

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.
