Best Bets of the Day

Follow along with me for the best free horse racing tips on race day! Friday night racing returns to Cranbourne with an 8 race meeting. Race 1 starts at 5:15pm (AEDT) and the track is rated a soft 5 at the moment. There's a 20% chance of rain but that looks like just before the races start. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Suances #11 Cranbourne R4

Suances has some impressive bloodlines, with its dam being a half-sister to the G1 sprinter Sea Siren. Suances had a solid second-place finish in an 800m jump-out at Pakenham on April 30. On debut, the horse closed well from midfield in a slow-paced race.

Suances showed promise at Mornington on May 13, finishing 3rd out of 9 in a 3yo Maiden on a slow track, just 1.5 lengths behind Majority Interest with 56kg at $4. With that experience under its belt, Suances is expected to improve and I think is a strong contender for this race.

Best Roughie: Legatus #4 Cranbourne R7

Legatus has been showing solid form, placing in both starts with strong finishes at Sale. Undefeated at Cranbourne, Legatus is one to watch on Friday night. Third-up on Friday, Legatus first placed 3rd out of 8 at Sale in a BM64 on May 5 over 1728m, trailing The Cunning Fox by 2.5 lengths with 58kg at $26.

In the second run from a spell, Legatus came 2nd out of 9 at Sale in another BM64 on May 19 over 1744m, finishing 3.5 lengths behind Godzilla with 58kg at $6.50. Ready to hit peak form now, Legatus looks like a solid roughie bet.

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.
