Best Bets of the Day

Racing kicks off this Monday for the first full week of June at some big tracks with five racecourses set, amongst them the Ballarat Synthetic Racecourse and Bathurst Racecourse have eight and seven race cards respectively. I have outlined my best betting spots across all tracks and the betting sites / betting apps to get the best odds as well as any promotions  that they may be running. Follow me below for the best free horse racing tips this Monday.

Bathurst Racecourse - R2 - #1 - Arimathea

Arimathea has been going very well for Dean Mirfin in recent preps and also goes very well fresh which makes him the leading contender in this field in my eyes. He went back to the paddock for a spell four months ago, after a successful spring / summer where he closed it out by winning back to back at this track over this distance range and has two wins and two placings in five first up runs and looks primed for a big return here. He gets a big weight claim from Mooney and will roll forward from the low draw. Top chance.

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.

Sportsbet-Ballarat Synthetic Racecourse - R7 - #8 - Our Free Spirit

Without much speed in the race or around her I think Our Free Spirit can lob forward without it being too taxing and be very hard to beat here. The Tony Noonan trained runner was very good on the synthetic two back over the 1400m, just missing to place second in a bold effort from on the pace. He then went to race in town at Mornington and just faded late there over this distance. Looks very well placed here, hard fit and back 200m in trip from the last synthetic outing. If they chose to ride her forward I think she will go very well with no weight on her back as well.

Stats and Insights

  • Ballarat 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, runners outside of around the ten suffer at least a length’s advantage due to the uniquely challenging nature of the straight
  • The Bathurst Racecourse is downhill from the 1400m to 800m giving horses that start fast out front a cheap time of things as it is less physically exhausting than the ‘normal’ course.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

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.
