Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Newcastle racecourse and Moonee Valley racecourse this Friday for some belter racing to lead us into the weekend and I have run through both of the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips on our site that includes a thorough run through of the Stakes race at Newcastle tomorrow. There is also a Multibets tips page on our site and an exotics tips page posted so be sure to check both of those out. As for this article I’ve also 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: Newcastle - R7 - #10 - Jimmysstar

Hard to knock Ciaron Maher’s Jimmysstar in the Stakes race of the day at Newcastle and this guy has had an absolute belter start to his career with five wins and two runner up placings in his short seven career start and he looks to have been astutely placed here for a ratings boosting win. After resuming with a big bang at Caulfield at the beginning of last month he stepped out at Flemington two weeks ago in some tough company and was asked to go inside at the 400m when fighting hard to the line, losing a plate and still only being beaten by a head in a very tight go. I think they will take that as a lesson to not ride him too hard in front and with the tactics changed for this race he should prove extremely tough to beat.

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 - R5 - #5 - Think 'N' Fly

I think that Think ‘N’ Fly is being somewhat overlooked here in the market for the Noonan camp. He won three back at Ararat over the 2200m before chasing hard at Bendigo in a very strong run that saw him just miss the win and come second and then stepped out at Flemington in tough company last time out where he sat on the leaders backs and chased hard to finish just behind the placings. Hard fit, in form and back in depth all make a good recipe for this assignment.

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.
  • Kris Lees has an impressive 26% strike rate at Newcastle and has a few runners placed in the racing at the track so watch closely.
  • Newcastle is a spacious and flat track with a 400m straight that gives almost all barriers an equal chance to run on.

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.
