Best Bets of the Day

Check out the free horse racing tips and best bets for Friday's racing at Ballarat Synthetic. I like the look of Peri Peri Rich at Ballarat Synthetic in Race 6. Meanwhile, my roughie of the day is A Good Yarn at Ballarat Synthetic in Race 8. The track conditions at Ballarat should be nice for racing on Friday with a good 3 rating at the moment. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Peri Peri Rich #1 Ballarat Synthetic R6

Last time out at Ballarat Synthetic, Peri Peri Rich was right up there with the leaders and put in a solid effort. He showed great speed and battled on fairly well. This time, I think he's got a more favourable draw, which should give him a better shot. With that advantage, he's definitely among the dangers and one to watch closely. In his last start, Peri Peri Rich was 60kg and ended up finishing 2nd, behind Cadboll (63.5kg) over 1100m after being right in the thick of things around the corner. Previously, 4th of 8 at Mornington BM58 on April 29, 2024 over 1200m. Loves this track, is yet to finish outside the top 3. Decent record fourth-up too. Rates a terrific each-way play, I think.

Best Roughie: A Good Yarn #3 Ballarat Synthetic R8

In good form and has strong claims to win on Friday. Last start was a good one, placing 2nd in a BM64 at Hamilton over 1100m. Previously, 2nd of 9 at Werribee BM64 on May 17, 2024 over 1008m. Likes the distance over its career. Tom Madden has had success on board with 2 wins in 8 starts. Good odds to have a crack each-way at PlayUp, ChaseBet or Questbet.

Stats and Insights

  • At Ballarat Synthetic, inside barriers can be an advantage for several distances between 1400 to 2200m.
  • The first 3-4 races in most meetings are called "Maidens" and these races are usually risky and unpredictable. This is because the runners are usually making their debut or have only had a few starts. So it's advisable to stay from these races unless you have a good bankroll.
  • Ballarat has 8 races on Friday and the track is a good 3.

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.
