Best Bets of the Day

Follow along with me for the best free horse racing tips on race day! Friday's racing action takes us to Geelong and Scone and I have found a best bet for you at betting sites in Australia. There's also a juicy roughie to get on board. I like the look of Flamin' Romans at Geelong in Race 8. I also like the look of Jonny Be Swiftin Race 7 at Scone. The track conditions at Geelong are looking good for racing. There's been a lot of rain around Scone recently so the track is a heavy 9 at the moment. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Flamin' Romans #5 Geelong R8

Just finished behind the places in it's last start, finishing 4th at 12 on June 21. So I think it can improve after that run and should be fitter here. Previously, 6th of 11 at Moonee Valley BM64 on February 2, 2024 over 2040m. The wet track should pose no problems. Good stats when it's second-up.

Best Roughie: Jonny Be Swift #6 Scone R7

Previously, it finished 5th of 8 at Warwick Farm in a Barrier Trial-Open on July 1, 2024 over 1207m, 5.2 lengths behind Sweysive. Previously, 6th of 7 at Warwick Farm Barrier Trial-Open on June 17, 2024 over 1200m. Previous success running first-up in it's career and should enjoy the racing conditions at Scone.

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.
  • The first 3-4 races in most meetings are called "Maidens" and these races are usually risky and unpredictable. This is because the runners are usually making their debut or have only had a few starts. So it's advisable to stay from these races unless you have a good bankroll.
  • Scone racecourse is known for it's long home straight of 400 metres.

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.
