Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar suspects with bumper eight and nine race cards set for Ipswich racecourse and Geelong racecourse respectively and we come off the back of a massive bang in our best bets article this Thursday with our $21.00 roughie of the day getting up and I am keen to keep the momentum going before our Saturday Tips come out as the Group 1 racing season begins with Spring racing approaching an official start and I have posted full length Friday tips articles on both these course but below I have picked out a best  bet of the day and best outside chance of the day in this article as well as where you can pick up the highest odds across the Aussie horse racing betting sites / betting apps. Below the tips I have recently re-written a section on the best promotions going around across our Aussie betting apps / betting sites so be sure to check that out as there are some good promotions going around. Follow me below for another exciting Friday of Provincial racing!

Best Tip: Ipswich - R1 - #7 - Underhand

Underhand surely makes it three from three here to kick off the card for the O’Dea / Hoystead camp off the back of two very sharp wins over the 860m at Gatton. Both of the runs have seen him forced to post wide and both have seen him run his legs off but he does look like a true sprinter and I think with the big claim from Lang as well as already getting in light he’s going to be tough to beat here. He gets in at just 51kg, maps to find the front or near it from barrier two and there’s not much more to it. Check out my Friday Tips at Ipswich racecourse for a full write up on this race as well as the other main chances. Hopefully we kick things off for the day with a win 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: Geelong - R4 - #4 - Statesmanship

Statesmanship’s splits rate amongst the best in this field and I think that he has struck another very winnable race here. He was three weeks between runs when stepping out over this track / trip three weeks ago where he crossed well from the wide gate to lead and looked the winner when kicking two lengths clear at the 200m and kept finding the line well but bumped into a smart horse right on the line who was powering home then. He’s clearly at his best off that effort and doesn’t have to improve much to be winning this.

Stats and Insights

  • The Geelong course proper is known as a track that gives every horse its chance as the circumference is 2043 metres with a straight distance of 400 metres
  • Geelong Racecourse is known to have an excellent wet weather racing surface, and we do see the sting out of the ground tomorrow so watch for any genuine wet trackers as they will have every chance
  • The Ipswich racecourse is near circular in circumference and as such has strong bias towards front runners.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions are an imperative aspect of horse racing betting and have traditionally been the primary mode of punters getting an edge over the  Aussie horse racing betting sites as you are essentially getting an extra shot at your bet that you wouldn’t traditionally be offered through promotions.

Punterspal, in the last few Saturday racing meetings, has stuck out to me amongst the Aussie betting sites that provide racing promotions and is one Australian betting apps I would look into, particularly when it comes to Saturday racing as we approach the Group 1 races season again this Spring.

On our site we have a Punterspal Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as other reviews such as Vicbet reviews, Palmerbet reviews etc 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.
