Best Bets of the Day

Racing continues this Friday after what has already been a very exciting and profitable week of racing and we head to Geelong Racecourse and Sunshine Coast Racecourse amidst a couple other regional tracks. There looks to be some very astutely placed runners from some top stables that should see there be some solid betting spots across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps. I have outlined my most confident runner and outside chance of the day below as well as the promotions for the racecourses that have meetings tomorrow across our betting sites. Follow me below for another solid day of racing!

Best Tip: Geelong Racecourse - R8 - #5 - Better Link

Better Link is a very solid horse for Greg Eurell who seems ultra progressive and I do think that he will be onto bigger races than this off the back of an exciting debut on the Pakenham Synthetic. We were on him there two weeks ago when Spain had him bounce to the front, lead easily and still have a strong kick in the straight to win dominantly there. Spain retains the ride, they map to find the front easily from barrier three and there’s plenty of upside to come with him still. Keen.

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 Racecourse - R6 - #7 - From Pantherland

From Pantherland has a very strong third up record, He’s got a win and second placing in three third up runs and I think he goes well in not an overly deep field here. The K & K Keys trained four year old ran first up from a spell over the 1200m at Moe and angled off the fence there, starting a big run to only just find one better in the smart leader who had just a few too many lengths on them early. He then raced at Cranborne in the mud last time out and didn’t appreciate the heavy ground there. He’s got a win and second placing in three third up runs and I think he goes well in not an overly deep field here.

Stats and Insights

  • The Sunshine Coast Racecourse is regarded as one of the most fair tracks with open long bends that give backmarkers a good opportunity to come from the back and win.
  • Sunshine Coast Racecourse barrier bias almost go out the window at distance upwards of 1300m so take that into account for your picks tomorrow
  • The Geelong Racecourse home straight has a slight uphill that extends for about 400m so look for horses that come on strong late as they will need that energy
  • The Geelong Racecourse features wide sweeping turns so look for runners that are good with rail in runs as often wide runners get pushed even further wide on the course.

Best Racing Promotions

Traditionally, promotions have been the primary means for bettors to gain an edge over bookmakers. These promotions prove beneficial by providing a safety net in case your chosen runner fails to win. 

Playup stands out amongst betting sites by frequently offering the advantage of refunding your bet with bonus bets for selected races on midweek and Provincial racing days, providing you with a second or third chance. Coupled with their favorable odds, Playup currently holds the top position in terms of promotions for Australian racing.

However, if you are seeking other betting apps that offer racing promotions  for this week it is worth looking at some other Australian bookies. On our onlyracing.com.au website we have a Punterspal review, Vicbet review and Palmerbet review which include the promotions that these betting sites frequently offer.

Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
