Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to the usual Friday racing suspects with eight races on both the cards at Lismore racecourse and Donald racecourse and I have run through the cards and made extensive free horse racing tips articles for both tracks which include multiple bets for each course and in this article I have picked out an overall best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day. As usual I have gone across all the betting sites and picked out where the best odds are available across the aussie betting sites / betting apps for the racing this Friday. Below the tips you will also find a small section on the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites. I am keen to build a bankroll for what looks like another solid day of Saturday racing this weekend so follow me below and let’s get some winners this Friday!

Best Tip: Donald - R6 - #7 - All About Eve

All About Eve boasts the best form lines in the race and it is hard to ignore who she has been running in the company of. She’s also been clocking some of the best run times amongst this field at common distances and gets one of three veteran jockey’s in this race booked for the ride. There’s obviously a lot to like about this Andrew Noblet product who is taking a big step down in competition. She’s had two runs at the 1000m, both of which saw her run 57 second times and one of which was first up so we know she will be competitive fresh. She gets Bates aboard who will be able to mitigate her drawing the widest gate and with only nine runners in the field as long as she isn’t lengths behind them she shouldn’t find much trouble getting a spot to come on from. Top chance in what is a strong sprint.

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: Lismore - R7 - #3 - I'mtimmyzou

I think that this penultimate race at Lismore can turn into a battle of tactics which is scary but you don’t need too many tactics on a hard-fit front running horse. I think that  I'mtimmyzou could get a cheap time of things from out front here as he maps to find it easily. The four year old Gelding has been up for some time but has been afforded short breaks between racing and has been holding form since putting together a couple wins on the bounce a few runs back and ran over the mile last time out at Coffs where he sped out to lead and only faded in the last 200m, looking strong until then. He maps to find the front again quite easily from a midfield barrier draw and back in 200m looks to be the distance he wants right now. Top chance.

Stats and Insights

  • Donald racecourse is a reasonably tight turning track that favours runners who are out front / close to the rai, reinforced by the skewness towards the inside five barriers of winners at the course.
  • Symon Wylde is the top trainer at Donald Racecourse thus far this season and has astutely placed a few of his runners at the course tomorrow. Watch for those with the S Wylde next to their trainer.
  • Lismore racecourse has long been regarded as a leaders course. It also favours rails in runs, something to look out for when doing your own form.

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.
