Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to our usual Monday suspects with cards set for Moruya racecourse and Tamworth racecourse and we come off the back of a pretty solid day in horse racing betting with some of our tips across the three Saturday tracks going very well. I am keen to keep the ball rolling into the second week of the year and have gone through the two aforementioned tracks and picked out another best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as  where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline our best promotions 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 another great day of racing this Monday!

Best Tip: Tamworth - R4 - #4 - Ishani

It’s most likely time that Ishani sheds the maiden tag here at start number six after coming across to Brett Cavanaough and resuming off a very long year break from racing and he resumed very well given it was such a long break. He stepped out over the 1000m at Gosford at the end of last month when where he was crowded for a run along the fence but when he did get clear air he ran home very well.

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: Moruya - R7 - #1 - Kokoro

Kokoro is a lethal horse on his day and rates as one of the highest in this field for John O’Shea and I think he can resume in a big way here. He draws a good gate, gets Atkins aboard and whilst he has to take on top weight here I am not convinced that will be enough to slow him down. He has won two from five first up so it’s no secret he goes well first up and now comes here off of a sharp Randwick trial where he seemingly was moving very nicely behind a smart horse in Misty Legend. I think he rates highly here and is a definite winning chance.

Stats and Insights

  • Tamworth Racecourse is a very circular track and as such it is very important to find the fence as you will continue to lose lengths as each distance features at least two turns on the course.
  • Cody Morgan is the top trainer at Tamworth Racecourse with a 20% strike rate at the course, he has seven runners tomorrow at the track so watch for them.
  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m at Moruya racecourse 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.

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.
