Best Bets of the Day

We have an exciting and competitive day of racing ahead of us this Friday, with Swan Hill Racecourse playing host to a big race card that has an exciting feature race of the day. There will certainly be some other good contests at Dubbo Racecourse and I have run through most of tomorrow’s racing across all courses and highlighted my best betting spots across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps. I have further outlined here the best promotions going around on our betting sites amongst my free horse racing tips for this Friday. Have a great weekend everyone and let’s build that bankroll tomorrow for Saturday’s racing!

Best Tip: Dubbo - R4 - #1 - Hellfire Express

Despite the presence of several untested newcomers in this race, I can’t be steered away too easily from Hellfire Express. Trained by Annabel Neasham, this juvenile put on a remarkable performance during his debut at Goulburn three weeks ago. Despite facing a challenging position throughout the race, being positioned three wide without cover, he outclassed the competition, leaving them behind in the final 200 metres. With room for further improvement, Hellfire Express is expected to deliver another impressive performance at Dubbo Racecourse this Friday.

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: Dubbo - R5 - #3 - Press Forward

Press Forward has put in only promising performances since being sold from the Portelli stable last year to Brett Robv. His most recent outing saw him after a 24-week break, he showcased great potential at this track. Although he fell short of victory, he put in a commendable effort when just fading late. Subsequently, he competed at Wellington over the same distance, impressively accelerating past his competitors and finishing strong. His splits were among the best recorded that day. I think he will have more to offer here third up now.

Stats and Insights

  • Dubbo Racecourse is quite awkwardly shaped with only a 250 metre straight and some sharp turns it favours runners who are nearer the rails and on the pace.
  • The Swan Hill Racecourse has a large circumference and a 475m home straight which gives backmarkers or horses that are best ridden with a sit a good chance
  • The Swan Hill Racecourse features wide sweeping turns for the sprints which gives outside runners a good chance to cut their way into the race mid race.

Best Racing Promotions

Traditionally, promotions have been the primary means for bettors to gain an edge over bookmakers. These promotions prove beneficial by providing a safety net in case your chosen runner fails to win. 

Playup stands out amongst betting sites by frequently offering the advantage of refunding your bet with bonus bets for selected races on midweek and Provincial racing days, providing you with a second or third chance. Coupled with their favorable odds, Playup currently holds the top position in terms of promotions for Australian racing.

However, if you are seeking other betting apps that offer racing promotions  for this week it is worth looking at some other Australian bookies. On our onlyracing.com.au website we have a Punterspal review, Vicbet review and Palmerbet review which include the promotions that these betting sites frequently offer.

Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
