Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Canterbury racecourse and Moonee Valley racecourse this Friday for two great cards as we look towards our Saturday Tips and some belter listed Saturday racing and I am very keen on these cards and have outlined my best tips in my full length free horse racing tips articles that have been posted on our site but in addition to those I have also posted an exotics tips article where we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. In this article we focus on our overall best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline 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: Moonee Valley - R5 - #1 - Sisterhood

Sisterhood hasn’t run a bad race in four career outings for Maher and Eustace, having won two and placed in her other two starts and comes into this off the back of a first up win at Sandown where she didn’t get the easiest of runs over this trip but still found plenty late to power home for a good win where her and the runner up put a big gap on third place. Well placed here, I think she is one of the better bets on the card.

BookmakerOdds

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: Canterbury - R4 - #3 - Our Bambino

A runner I am very interested to see what the market does with and I have put a small bet on already as I suspect she will be a lot shorter come jump is Our Bambino for the Murphy camp. She’s the highest rating horse in this field and one of the only runners that comes out of Saturday grade when finishing down the track behind Zegalo last time out at Rosehill. She gets in light with the claim from Stanley and only runs well for me.

Stats and Insights

  • There is a very clear frontrunning bias at Moonee Valley even up until the staying distance of 2000m+, when considering between two selections see where they map to be in the run.
  • Canterbury is a much tighter track than most NSW courses, giving significant advantage to close on pacers and those close to the rail in general. It also favours late rails-in-run horses due to the tight turning nature.
  • Chris Waller sends an army of runners to Canterbury Park tomorrow and is one of the top trainers at the course so watch for his runners there tomorrow.

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.
