Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some of our premier pre-provincial racecourses with bumper cards set for both Canterbury racecourse and Cranbourne racecourse and I am very keen on both of the cards and have run through both of them extensively and posted full length free horse racing tips on our site and in addition to those I have also posted an exotics tips article where we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. As for this article we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as outlined 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: Canterbury - R1 - #2 - Hellfire Express

Hard to jump off Hellfire Express for Annabel Neasham now after winning three in a row and making it four career wins in six career starts and this horse comes out of a run at this track and trip a couple weeks ago where she was bumped at the jump, forced wide and still overpowered them from four wide in the straight. She’s hard fit, gets Jmac on and maps for a much softer run, can win again and step out to Provincial racing.

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: Cranbourne - R2 - #5 - Pure Power

Pure Power should not be treated lightly here for Maher and Eustace and comes into this having his third career start and off the back of a run at this track and trip where he set third in the run along the rails before hitting it hard in the straight and fighting well to the line to only find the exacta better than him. Third up now, hard fit and ready to peak I think he only goes well.

Stats and Insights

  • Stats at Cranbourne show that barriers four to ten are the best at all distances at Cranbourne
  • 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.
