Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Muswellbrook racecourse and Cranbourne racecourse this Friday for two solid cards in NSW and VIC as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season and we see some very progressive runners stepping out for these meetings. I have thoroughly outlined my best betting spots of the day and posted full length free horse racing tips pages on our site and in addition to those have also posted an exotics tips page and a multibet tips page. In this I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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: Muswellbrook - R1 - #4 - The Eyes Have It

The Eyes Have It looks to have been brought here for a soft kill for his third career start under Nathan Doyle and I think at evens he’s a good bet. He’s had a tick over trial at Beaumont after last racing in a Group Three at Rosehill where he finished near the back but wasn’t disgraced at all. His debut run reads well enough for this as well and with plenty of upside I think Doyle gets an early winner here. 

BookmakerOdds
$2.00
VicBet$2.00
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: Cranbourne - R1 - #9 - Missile Meg

Missile Meg is another who has had a lot of runs without breaking through but he has recently switched camps and come over to Enver Jusufovic and came off of a seven week break to make his stable debut at Pakenham behind Spellmaster where he only really got going late but once he did it was very eyecatching when powering home into fourth place. I think he shapes up well off the back of that effort and should be strong here.

Stats and Insights

  • Musswellbrook is a wide turning course that gives backmarkers and wide runners an honest chance to come on but also advantages rails in runners that can cut corners.
  • Stats at Cranbourne show that barriers four to ten are the best at all distances at Cranbourne.
  • The longer distances have a steep uphill climb from the 600m to the winning post so look for bigger type horses at Cranbourne.

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.
