Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some familiar suspects with bumper eight and nine race cards set for Ipswich racecourse and Echuca racecourse and I have gone through both cards and posted extensive free horse racing tips articles which can be found on our site under Friday racing tips. Be sure to check those full length articles out for the best betting spots per card on each card and in this article I have reiterated my overall best bet of the day across both cards and my best outside chance of the day and have attached, to these selections, where to get the best odds across the aussie betting sites. Below the tips you will also find a small section on the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites and there should be a couple decent promotions before the weekend starts. Follow me below for another great Friday of racing as we look to get some winners to lead us into the weekend!

Best Tip: Ipswich - R1 - #3 - Janean

I think that the Currie trained Janean could be a moral on debut here in this small field Maiden race sprint to kick the card off this Friday and I think that Janean is a good thing going and will likely make this a winning debut at her home base. Currie has this runner right to fire first up as is often the case with his first starters and this does look the right set up for a soft kill. He trialled on the Toowoomba inner two weeks back over the 650m where he displayed a really nice stride and ran a fast time out front. I don’t think there’s too much more to it, he likely goes well here.

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: Echuca - R7 - #3 - Onslaught

Onslaught looks to have hit some serious form for the Mathrick camp and I think he can go on with it here. He beat a couple in this field last time out but it was just the way he did it that was so impressive, even if the time wasn’t super flash. His last run came just under two weeks ago where he set third and three wide with no cover and looked to be gone but just kept grinding away and it paid off when he eventually found the front and won in very impressive fashion. He will be fitter for that run and now should get a more economical run in transit which should see him be very strong.

Stats and Insights

  • The Ipswich racecourse is near circular in circumference and as such has strong bias towards front runners.
  • Shawn Mathrick has had six runners start at Echuca racecourse for four wins, I have tipped a bunch of his runners in my free horse racing tips
  • Contrary to many other Aussie racecourses, outside runners have an advantage in the straight at the 1000m.

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.
