Best Bets of the Day

We come off the back of a massive Group 1 racing this past Saturday with our free horse racing tips having gone very nicely and also our Sunday tips having gone well as well. I am keen to keep the momentum rolling this Monday and have run through the cards at Warwick Farm racecourse and the Sportsbet Ballarat Coast racecourse and picked out another best bet and best outside chance of the day. In addition to the tips I have outlined below there is a short section on the best promotions going around across the betting sites and I think it is worth checking out as it is worthwhile to try to get an edge on the bookies as best you can. There are some further helpful track insights after both the aforementioned sections to assist you with your own horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great Monday of racing!

Best Tip: Sportsbet-Ballarat - R3 - #1 - Haaracaine

Haaracaine looks like the classic Nick Ryan Billy Egan regional set up and looks well placed to win here. He’s had two runs back from a spell and now looks to have been placed with consideration in easier grade with hard fitness and in a softer field. He resumed from a 21 week spell at Sandown Hillside where he put in a very honest shift over the 1300m before going to Seymour over the 1425m and chased hard again all run to look the winner and just miss in the last 100m. He now steps up to the Mile ready for the trip and meets a very beatable field.

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: Warwick Farm - R4 - #8 - Golden Passport

Golden Passport shapes up well here for my favourite stable in the country in the Waterhouse / Bott giants and I am very keen to see how he steps out tomorrow. He’s had four runs this time in and after breaking maiden in his first run he hasn’t put in a bad shift since. He’s had three runs since then and all of them have been close runner up placings. His last run saw him be near the front all run and have a strong kick in the straight to only be swamped by one smart horse. He’s hard fit, in form, gets a nice gate and I think he only runs well.

Stats and Insights

  • Ballarat Synthetic is a spacious track and has a home straight that goes up and even undulates a bit and as such you need runners with good fight / ones that can run home hard late.
  • At Ballarat synthetic, runners outside of around the ten suffer at least a length’s advantage due to the uniquely challenging nature of the straight
  • Warwick Farm track bias skews towards mid barriers and outside runners on distances 1200m+

Best Racing Promotions

Horse racing betting is always further advantaged for the punter via promotions which assist punters in getting an edge over betting sites. For racing these promotions are often extensive and frequent across the aussie betting apps and provide you more ‘outs’ to your bet that you wouldn’t normally be afforded.

Punterspal has stuck out to me in the last little while amongst the Aussie betting sites that offer horse racing promotions and is one that I would consider signing up to. As we are in full swing for the Group 1 races, Saturday’s become very useful to take advantage of the heightened promotions during the period.

On our website we have a Punterspal review that goes in depth into the bookmaker and their advantages and disadvantages as well as a Vicbet  and Palmerbet review which are bookmakers I also favour in terms of their promotions.

Promotions do tend to change frequently amongst the Aussie betting sites so be sure to check onlyracing.com.au to stay updated on the latest promotions.
