Best Bets of the Day

Great racing to kick off the week in style comes to Pakenham Synthetic Racecourse and Muswellbrook racecourse and we have two big cards to lead us into the week. I have outlined all the days racing and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as found the best odds across all of the Aussie betting sites / betting apps and outlined them below the tips / attached to the tips. I have also gone through the betting sites and picked out the best promotions going around as it can give us a further edge over the bookies so follow me below for another solid day of racing!

Best Tip: Muswellbrook - R1 - #8 - Priding

Priding looks very close to breaking through for the Sylvester stable off the back of four runs in this time and he has gone very close placing in two of the four. Last time out he ran at Beaumont Newcastle when getting a nice trail behind the speed when he loomed to win at the 200m and started a big run, looked the winner and just found one better to go down second late. He looks very well placed here now hard fit, after clocking good splits and draws a nice alley to get a similar trail behind the speed and should be too strong late.

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: Pakenham - R5 - #8 - Fly Nice

Fly Nice looks astutely placed here for the Maher and Eustace camp and should go very well here under Cartwright’s steering. He’s three weeks between runs since racing in a strong BM64 at Mornington when he eased three wide on the turn and started a powerful run home but peaked just a bit too early and found them too strong late. The run before came at this track and trip and he chased hard out wide there to end up second in the run. He clearly likes the synthetic and now comes back here with much better experience, hard fit and representing a top stable. I think he only runs well

Stats and Insights

  • Pakenham is one of the smallest tracks in the country, with only 1400m circumference and as such suited to front-runners and those horses with the ability to race handy to the pace
  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m across both these courses winners predominantly emerge from barriers 5-8 which suggests those horses who either fire straight onto the speed or those that sit just behind the speed have the greatest chances.
  • Musswellbrook is a wide turning course that gives backmarkers and wide runners an honest chance to come on but also advantages rails in runners that can cut corners.

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.
