Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to our some of our premiere Friday customers with nice cards set for Geelong racecourse and Cranbourne racecourse to continue the week with two solid cards in NSW and VIC as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season, coming off the back of one of the biggest Saturday race days of the season. In this I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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 Thursday! 

Best Tip: Cranbourne - R3 - #6 - Russian Bobshark

Russian Bobshark is a very astute looking first starter for Ciaron Maher that has been jumping out since February and has looked incredibly sharp in winning all three since then. He sat second in his most recent when trailing Imapagethree Girl in before gliding past her in the straight to win well. That was two weeks ago at Ballarat over the 900m so she’s clearly been wound up for start one and it’s early to say but I think she could be something special.

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 - R8 - #2 - Teentee

Teentee looks primed for his return for the Preusker camp and is a horse I followed last prep when having his debut campaign. He is good with fresh legs and his recent trial effort saw him working very strong to the line when not asked for any effort but still running home nicely. He showed that he has a bit of versatility in running in his first prep to the races as well so given that he has the good draw and 2kg off his back with Houston aboard I am quite keen on him at odds.

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
  • Anthony and Sam Freedman are some of the top trainers in Victoria and they send forward not that many runners tomorrow to Geelong but the ones there look very astutely placed so watch for them.
  • Stats at Cranbourne show that barriers four to ten are the best at all distances at Cranbourne.

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.
