Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Geelong Racecourse and Scone Racecourse this Friday off the back of what has been a very solid week of racing already and we got unlucky today, with our best bet not coming on and our outsider placing but we look to hit back hard here and I have full articles posted as per usual with my free horse racing tips on the site for both racecourses but in this article I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day and scanned across all the Aussie betting sites / betting apps to find the best odds for these picks as well as the promotions that our bookmakers are currently offering. Follow me below for a solid Friday of racing across all the meetings!

Best Tip: Scone - R3 - #2 - Tiva Bay

I can’t get away from the Kris Lees trained Tiva Bay who is flying and in, what I would classify as, career best form after being patiently brought along by the Stable with crucial timed breaks to sustain her fitness but also not have her burn out. She put together three sharp placings, all of which on the bounce and all of which she ended up runner up with one of them coming three runs back here. The writing was on the wall from all of those before racing last time out at Tamworth over the 2100m and grinded away all run for a brave last to first win. I think he will go on with it now and she will be tough to beat up 100m in trip and with McLellan retaining the ride.

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 - R7 - #6 - Thistler

I think that Thistler can hit back hard here off a sharp win two runs back and last time out he ran in a high weight handicap at Warrnambool racecourse in the true Heavy going and had to lump 70kg for that 2350m contest on a truly bogged down track and just didn’t handle that run when dropping out the race. I think he can be forgiven for that as the form really doesn’t translate for this assignment and if anything he will be fitter for that run. Before then he raced here off a smart four week let up from racing and was very good when chasing along the rails to do the best late of the field. I didn’t think he beat much off but another horse from that race has subsequently won since and think back to this track / trip fitter now he will only run an improved race.

  • Geelong Racecourse is known to have an excellent wet weather racing surface, and we do see the sting out of the ground tomorrow so watch for any genuine wet trackers as they will have every chance
  • Aaron Bullock is the top jockey at Scone Racecourse with a 22% strike rate here, he gets a very solid booking of rides for tomorrow’s racing and a couple of his runners are in my comprehensive free racing tips so watch for him tomorrow.

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.
