Best Bets of the Day

Friday racing comes back to some familiar tracks with huge meetings at Sale Racecourse and Rockhampton Racecourse amidst a couple other major tracks and I have indepth free horse racing tips for both of the courses that will be on our site in addition to this best bets tips article. We got extremely unlucky today with our best bet, looking the winner in the last 100m before being grabbed on the line by another smart type to come 2nd but we look to hit back hard again tomorrow to build a bit of a bankroll for Saturday’s racing! As usual I have gone through both the cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as found where the best odds are for these picks across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps and attached them to my picks just below the tips. I have also found the best promotions going around across the bookmakers and outlined them below the tips. Follow me below for another solid day of racing this Thursday!

Best Tip: Sale - R5 - #6 - Prancing Queen

Can’t knock winning form and the Mick Ellerton trained Prancing Queen has done very little wrong this time in for the stable. She’s had just the one run in the Heavy at Bendigo over this distance two weeks ago when resuming off a 19 week spell where she relished the track conditions, driving along the rails to take the lead inside the last 75m and win softly with plenty more to offer. She went back to the paddock last prep a winner in similar conditions and sticks at this distance, gets another wet track and should have plenty to offer second up.

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: Rockhampton - R4 - #8 - Kahaylaan

Kahaylaan is one of the more interesting runners in this field. The five year old changed hands earlier this year to Kris Hansen and then subsequently resumed off of an eighteen week spell at this track and +50m this trip where he seemingly has returned to form when held up at the 300m before angling clear going very wide and winding up to power home into the placings. Couldn’t have gone much better for the 1st run for the new trainer and I am very keen to see what he has to offer with natural improvement second up. Go close.

Stats and Insights

  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m across at Sale Racecourse 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.
  • When racing at Sale Racecourse specifically out of the 1000m and 1200m chutes the course features a long straight followed by a large sweeping turn which means runners that draw outside of barrier 10 are disadvantaged by at least a length
  • Rockhampton has a near 600m home straight which mimics a lot of the metro tracks in that backmarkers have plenty chance to come on so don’t discount those outside barriers or sitting style runners tomorrow at the course.

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.
