Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns this Friday to Tuncurry racecourse for a big nine race card that sees some of the top stables send forth their debutants and lightly raced runners to pick up some ratings boosting wins as Spring racing is well and truly underway and we also have a bumper eight race card in Victoria as we head to Mornington. I have posted full length tips on our website and in addition also an exotics tips article that we can potentially pick up some more lucrative bets from. In the below article I have picked out an overall best bet of the day and roughie of the day as well as where you can pick up the bets odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outlined our best promotions across the aussie betting sites as it is a Friday the major Australian bookmakers should have some solid promotions going around. In the final part of the article you should find some helpful track insights for both the racecourses which should aid your betting at both the tracks. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Friday!

Best Tip: Mornington - R1 - #4 - Blue Chip Girl

Blue Chip Girl looks like she is going to be awfully tough to beat here for the Laurie camp and runs well with fresh legs based on her first preparation. Her debut run came over this distance at Yarra Valley last year where she raced along the fence and hit the line hard to only just miss late. She’s put in a bunch of good efforts since and now resumes under Jamie Kah here so there’s clearly intent.

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: Tuncurry - R6 - #11 - More Than Discreet

I think that More Than Discreet is going pretty well and comes into this race at a nice price I think due to him pulling up lame last time out. He ran on the speed before fading late at Taree over this distance when pulling up ⅖ lame but prior to then had been putting in two close and solid placings in good time. He looks well placed to hit back hard here and this race isn’t overly strong.

Stats and Insights

  • Mornington has a testing uphill straight. It is a short straight of only 200m but it is also sharp and as such favours front running horses quite aggressively.
  • At Mornington it is best to stick with horses drawn 8 and inside in the sprint races up to the mile
  • Kris Lees is the top trainer at Tuncurry with a 33% strike rate and sends an assault of runners to the course tomorrow so watch for them.

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.
