Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to our premier Friday night racing courses in Victoria and NSW with bumper cards under the lights set for Canterbury racecourse and Moonee Valley racecourse and I have extensively covered my best betting spots in full length free horse racing tips below and in addition to those we also have an exotics tips article and a recently launched Multibet tips article that we picked up our first win with the other day so definitely check those tips out as well. As for this article we focus on our  best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as 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: Canterbury - R1 - #1 - Autumnmation

Surely Autumnmation breaks through here at start number six for Chris Waller after recording three close runner up placings with some of them being in very strong competition. He most recently came off of a 16 week break where he stayed inside and chased hard for a rail hugging place. He should have plenty to offer off the back of that and is the one to beat for me.

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 - R3 - #9 - Our Girl Britney

One I am happy to entertain at longer odds is Our Girl Britney who made her debut two weeks ago at Mornington over the 1200m and after jumping awkwardly and settling near the rear of the field she improved steadily throughout the run to eventually start a big run home that saw her finish just behind the placegetters and only a length and a half off of the winner. Plenty of upside to come and draws a good gate 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.
  • Canterbury is a much tighter track than most NSW courses, giving significant advantage to close on pacers and those close to the rail in general. It also favours late rails-in-run horses due to the tight turning nature.
  • Chris Waller sends an army of runners to Canterbury Park tomorrow and is one of the top trainers at the course so watch for his runners there tomorrow.

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.
