Best Bets of the Day has you covered for Friday horse racing action at Albury and Swan Hill. We have your best bet of the day as well as a cheeky roughie. On Friday, we head to Swan Hill for a roughie in Race 7 over 1200m. Good weather is predicted for race day and the track is a soft 6, which could upgrade to a 4 or 5 in the afternoon. While in Albury, the track is a soft 7 and there's also no rain expected to impact racing. I'm looking at a best bet in Race 6 to win at Albury on a back to back. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Champagne Sharon #5 Albury R6

With Amy O'Driscoll on board last start, won at Albury (1000m). So hopefully that form continues into Friday's race at the same track. On Friday, Amy O'driscoll is in the saddle and knows how to win. Get on board. Before that, Champagne Sharon finished first at Benalla in a Barrier Trial-Class 2 on April 8, 2024 over 1000m, winning by 1.6L and beating Besson. Has placed when second-up too.

Best Roughie: Fancify #10 Swan Hill R7

In his last race on May 11 at Caulfield, he surged to the front, winning by 1.5 lengths. He carried 54.5kg and managed to beat In Her Stride (55.5kg), which was quite impressive, especially at $4.80 odds. So, it's definitely in top form right now. Before that, Fancify finished first at Morphettville Parks in a BM72 on April 20, 2024 over 1250m, winning by 1.8L and beating Costless (54kg). Really good value odds at PlayUp, Chasebet and Questbet to give the favourite (Press Down) a run for it's money in this race.

Stats and Insights

  • Runners that draw inside have an advantage over most barriers at Albury racecourse.
  • 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.
  • There's no Friday night racing so focus on Swan Hill and Albury meetings during the afternoon to end the weekend.

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.
