Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Pakenham Synthetic race course and Wyong racecourse for eight and seven race cards respectively and it is Wyong Cup Day already which should make for some exciting listed races. I have posted extensive free horse racing tips articles on our site where I outline my best bets for each racecourse and in addition to those there are also exotics tips posted on our site where we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. I have picked out my overall best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day in this article as well as where you can pick up the highest odds across the Aussie horse racing betting sites / betting apps. Below the tips you will see a small section on the best promotions going around on our betting sites, there should be some decent ones given there is listed racing tomorrow. Follow me below and let's keep the momentum going as we look towards a huge Saturday of Group 1 races!

Best Tip: Wyong - R4 - #3 - Razors

Razors seems to have come back very sharply for Godolphin and rates as one of the best horses at the Wyong race meeting relative to the rest of the field. He scored dominantly first up and then went to the Hawkesbury last time out where Christian Reith couldn’t find a spot for him but once he finally did Razors was flying home. Jmac now gets the ride, hard fit third up and maps to lob into a solid spot on the speed, more than likely wins this race.

*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: Pakenham Synthetic - R7 - #7 - Havisham

Havisham comes back to this track after just the one synthetic run that saw him score well at this track / trip and looks well placed here for the Leek stable. That winning run came two back where he raced off the speed before swinging three wide on the turn and chasing strongly to find the front and get the job done in a bob of the heads. That was in a pretty strong field before stepping out last time at The Valley in this grade and nearly backing up where he had to do heaps of early work and put in a seriously brave effort on the wrong part of the track to place third. He’s hard fit, in form and should look the winner at least some of the way in this.

Stats and Insights

  • 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
  • Pakenham is one of the smallest tracks in the country, with only 1400m circumference and as such suited to front-runners and those horses with the ability to race handy to the pace
  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m at Pakenham Synthetic winners predominantly emerge from barriers 5-8 which suggests those horses who either fire straight onto the speed or those that sit just behind the speed have the greatest chances.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions are an imperative aspect of horse racing betting and have traditionally been the primary mode of punters getting an edge over the  Aussie horse racing betting sites as you are essentially getting an extra shot at your bet that you wouldn’t traditionally be offered through promotions.

Punterspal, in the last few Saturday racing meetings, has stuck out to me amongst the Aussie betting sites that provide racing promotions and is one Australian betting apps I would look into, particularly when it comes to Saturday racing as we approach the Group 1 races season again this Spring.

On our site we have a Punterspal Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as other reviews such as Vicbet reviews, Palmerbet reviews etc 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.
