Best Bets of the Day

Easter Monday racing comes back to some of our premiere Provincial racecourses off the back of what was quite a tough weekend in horse racing betting and I am keen to get stuck back into what looks like it has shaped up to be a very solid day of Easter Monday betting. I have gone through both the Warwick Farm racecourse and Sandown Lakeside racecourse cards and picked out my best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards.  In the final part of the article you should find some helpful track insights for both the racecourses which should assist your horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Easter Monday!

Best Tip: Warwick Farm - R4 - #10 - Kandinsky Abstract

A very expensive three year old by the name of Kandinsky Abstract returns to racing for Chris Waller after somewhat screwing around last prep when racing in pretty tough company but not winning much. He did however beat Celestial Legend in his debut to the races and now has had two trials for the return with the most recent of which being a beautiful and strong trial win. Jmac gets the booking and he should be able to make sure that this guy doesn’t get buried too far back in the run.

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: Sandown - R1 - #4 - Icarus

Mostly first starters in the opening Maiden race of the day at Sandown Lakeside tomorrow and I think that the pick of them has to be Eurell’s Icarus who looks a very well bred horse by sire of Mamzelle Tess and after having placed third in two Cranbourne jumpouts. I think that she just looked to be the strongest horse in both of those jumpouts when working really solidly through the line and being strong in finishing both times. He shapes up very well for the debut off the back of those runs.

Stats and Insights

  • Sandown Hillside has a dip in the course at around the 450m mark by the rail. As such it suits horses that make their runs away from the inside, enabling them to avoid the dip at the 450m mark.
  • Sandown Hillside has a wide turn from the 800 to the 400 compared to Lakeside which allows for runners to come on from wider that wouldn’t be able to on the Lakeside course.
  • Warwick Farm track bias skews towards mid barriers and outside runners on distances 1200m+

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.
