Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar tracks with Scone Racecourse and Geelong Racecourse having lined up some very nice looking cards and I have extensively run through the cards in my free horse racing tips articles that you can find on the website as we look to hit hard here before going onto Saturday’s racing. Our best bets tips article didn’t go to well with our best of the day being swamped on the line to finish runner up and as for our roughie of the day, the short price Waterhouse/Bott favourite from the race thrashed the field there. As for below I have picked out my top pick across both tracks for the day in addition to a best outside chance across the two race cards. I have also gone across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps and highlighted where you can get the best odds for these picks. Below the tips you will find a small section on the best promotions  going around across the betting apps. Follow me in this article below for another great set of midweek race meetings!

Best Tip: Scone - R4 - #5 - Martedi

The monstrous Messara / Bullock combination is represented by Martedi in this race who, on ratings alone, looks like she should be far too strong for these albeit the danger from a few lightly raced horses that should have upside here but so does she. She has won or placed in her three starts to date and last time out she sat outside the leader and took over at the 200m to just find one better very late who came on flying from the tail of the field and looked a smart type. His run style looks suited to the step up in distance and it’s going to take a very good thing to beat him.

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 - R6 - #14 - Strangeless

I am not backing her with too much confidence but I am keen to have something on the Price and Kent trained Strangeless who is definitely over the odds here. She looks to be in for a decent debut prep for the stable after just the one run for Kurt Goldman that saw her win on debut in the Heavy. She has had two runs back for the new camp and looks to have improved sharply in her last run when doing it tough from wide early and working well in the run before being eased out of it late to finish fourth. She should be much fitter from that, better for her two runs back at the races and with Gaudray on they can find the front and give a sight from there.

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
  • Aaron Bullock is the top Jockey at Scone Racecourse with a 22% strike rate. He gets a booking in all eight of tomorrow’s races at the course so watch out for his rides, I have outlined a few of them in my racing tips articles on the site.

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.
