Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Kempsey racecourse and Pakenham racecourse off the back of some of the biggest racing of the year with our massive listed racing cards of The Big Dance at Randwick and of course, the premier staying contest of the season, the Melbourne Cup at Flemington. Our best bet got the money at around $3.00 everywhere in what has been a great week of horse racing betting and I am keen to keep the momentum going as such I have run through both of the cards and picked out a best bet and a roughie of the day across each but there will be plenty of good betting spots tomorrow so make sure to utilise the track insights at the bottom of this article. I have also outlined where the best promotions are 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 a massive day of racing this Friday!

Best Tip: Pakenham - R5 - #11 - Extremely Rowdy

Extremely Rowdy is yet to miss the placegetters in two outings to kick off his career and I think that he looks well placed for the Gelagotis stable to go over here. He last stepped out at Kyneton where he was forced deep in the run and two wide before shifting out wider and hitting the line hard in the final 200m but was just overrun late by a smart winner to place second there. He draws well here, hard fit and I think only goes well here.

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: Kempsey - R3 - #7 - Piccolo Ponti

Piccolo Ponti returned to racing well and should be strong here second up with natural improvement. He resumed off of a 17 week spell at Grafton when being trapped near the rear of the field and posted three wide and still produced a brave effort to run on well just behind the placegetters in a big field. Will be fitter and all the better for that run and I think he rates above his pricetag here.

Stats and Insights

  • Pakenham is one of the smallest tracks in the country, with only 1400m circumference and as such suited to front-runners and those horses with the ability to race handy to the pace
  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m at Pakenham 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.
  • Kempsey racecourse is a circular track that favours horses near to the rail due to it’s wide sweeping turns.

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.
