Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to our usual Friday suspects with bumper cards set for Cranbourne racecourse and Gosford racecourse and I have thoroughly run through both of the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips articles on our site and in addition to that I have also posted exotics tips on our website but in this article we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as outlined our best promotions 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 another great day of racing this Friday!

Best Tip: Gosford - R1 - #4 - Rockabilly Rebel

Rockabilly Rebel resumes here off of a 19 week spell for Bjorn Baker and has already been very impressive in his short six run career but I think based off the way he has trialled for his return he is going to be very tough to catch here. He has had two trials for the return with the most recent of which being a very sharp win at Rosehill where he was ridden with a fair bit of intent, I think it translates across for this now.

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: Cranbourne - R6 - #4 - Movader

Movader is resuming here for Maher and Eustace and looking for his third career win in twelve starts and I think relative to what he has contested in the past he has to be given a lot of thought here. He has been running with the likes of Beour Bay and actually beat Albanian I am last prep so I think resuming with Stockdale aboard and from a good draw he will be very prominent here.

Stats and Insights

  • Stats at Cranbourne show that barriers four to ten are the best at all distances at Cranbourne
  • Dylan Gibbons is the top jockey at Gosford this season with 10 winners in 50 runs. He gets five bookings tomorrow so watch for any of them at nice odds as of time of writing this.
  • Gosford has a 400m straight with the home turn being a long sweeping turn which gives runners time to position themselves for big runs in the straight.

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.
