Best Bets of the Day

Get set for some horse racing action this Friday, May 10th, as Geelong and Cranbourne racecourses take centre stage! I've looked through both race cards and I've got a couple of cracking best bets for you. In this article, I'll be dishing out my top bet of the day along with a juicy roughie that's worth a punt. Plus, I've rounded up the top Betting Sites Promotions from our recommended Only Racing Australia betting sites.

Best Tip: Thunder Award #6 + Geelong R5

Returning to the track after placing 7th and 4th in recent Cranbourne jumpouts, Thunder Award is ready to make its mark once again on Friday. Thunder Award kicked off its racing career with a bang, smashing the field in its debut and leaving Elouyou in the dust. The horse looked mighty impressive in a recent trial too, showing it's got plenty more to give. With that kind of form and potential, Thunder Award's definitely one to watch in this field. While its debut performance showcased its potential, its second outing in town demonstrated its consistency and resilience. With a track record like that, it's clear this contender is one to watch closely. Keep an eye out for a strong showing from this impressive runner.

Best Roughie: Mere Fancy #5 + Cranbourne R6

Mere Fancy didn't quite find its rhythm in the initial race back, but it certainly gave it a good crack given the circumstances. However, the second time around, it came back with a vengeance, showing a significant improvement and hinting at its potential. This one's a real contender to keep an eye on, especially considering its recent performance uptick. Tonight's race at Cranbourne could be the perfect opportunity for Mere Fancy to really shine and make its mark on the track. Decent odds at PlayUp so it’s worth a punt.

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.
