Horse Racing Tips and Best Bets 24/05/24

Best Bets
Best Bets of the Day has you covered for Friday horse racing action at Cranbourne and Murwillumbah. We have your best bet of the day as well as a cheeky roughie. Friday night racing continues at Cranbourne with 8 races on the card. The track is rated a soft 5 at the moment. Then, we're heading to NSW in Murwillumbah where the track is rated a heavy 10 due to plenty of rain in the area. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Amleto #6 Cranbourne R6

Last time, he really kicked it up a notch, coming from way back to nab 3rd at Yarra Valley. But then, at Flemington, he kinda got stuck in the back of the pack and couldn't catch up, finishing ninth out of fifteen. But hey, don't count him out just yet! He's gearing up to tackle a longer trip this time around.

Amleto's no stranger to the track. He's a British import who scored his first win about a year ago at Chester's May Festival. After that, he only raced once more and let's just say the weather wasn't on his side. At his debut at Yarra Valley, he started off a bit slow but really picked up speed toward the end, grabbing that third spot. Mark Zahra thinks he just needs a bit more distance and softer ground to really shine. Fingers crossed it's on Friday!

Best Roughie: Champagnes On Me #9 Murwillumbah R6

So, this is her second race back after a bit of a break. In her first race back after six months, she put in a solid effort, coming in 2 out of 11 at Warwick. She was just edged out by Stormtrooper, but hey, it was a close one. Before that, in her second race back, she finished 10th out of 14th at Hawera, but the ground was kinda soggy that day, so it wasn't her best run. But here's the thing - she's looking race-fit now and ready to give it her all. Solid chance for a top-three finish, for sure!

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.
