Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some usual Monday suspects for a quieter Monday of racing but not without some good bets across the Aussie betting sites with cards set for Queanbeyan racecourse and Ballina racecourse and I am keen to get stuck into both and have picked out another best bet of the day and a best outside chance of the day. I have also outlined where the best promotions  are across the aussie betting sites. 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 a massive day of racing this Sunday!

Best Tip: Ballina - R4 - #4 - Tosen Dreamer

Tosen Dreamer has come awfully close to shedding the maiden tag since coming over from Kris Lees to the McGuren stable and I think now is as good a time as any for him. He resumed off of a 20 week spell at Grafton a couple weeks ago where he sat right on the leaders heels and took over in the straight before being just overrun in the last 100m by a couple smart ones who have since won again. That was an impressive return and he will be fitter and sharper now.

BEST OF THREE TOTES

*The Best Tote bet type pays bettors the hddighest 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: Queanbeyan - R3 - #1 - Artie Bee

I think that if Artie Bee can handle the big weight he can make it back to back wins here. He resumed from a 22 week spell last time out at Adaminaby over this trip where he had to carry a stack of weight compared to his rivals and still bolted to the line to win with something in hand there. I think he is a true sprinting animal and whilst he goes right up in the weights he gets a 3kg claimer aboard and I think he can make it win three at start 12 now.

Stats and Insights

  • Inside barriers play an important role at all distance ranges at Queanbeyan racecourse.
  • The Queanbeyan straight hits an incline at the 200m that continues until the post so runners that come on / have big kicks often have the best chances.
  • Ballina racecourse is another track that has an inside runner advantage with nearly 40% of the winners at the course coming from the inside three barriers

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.
