Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Tamworth racecourse and Echuca racecourse to start the week and we have two solid cards in NSW and VIC respectively as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season, coming off the back of one of the biggest Saturday race days of the season. I have thoroughly outlined my best betting spots. In this I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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 - R1 - #1 - Vincenzo

Vincenzo seems to have come back in top order for Stephanie Singleton and can continue to improve here off the back of a strong win last time out. He’s had two runs back from a 20 week spell this campaign and afer debuting over the 1600m at Wyong where he ran well into the placings behind some decent horses he last stepped out at The Hawkesbury when being held up until a split came at the 250m and he powered away with it once it presented itself to win well. He should only be fitter and sharper off the back of that run and shapes up well here again.

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: Echuca - R3 - #11 - Queen Caves

Queen Caves looks like a very well placed debutant for John Thompson who comes here to make her debut racing off the back of six very sharp jumpouts where she has won half of them and been placed in the other half since stepping out for the first couple a few months ago. She gets the nod for me over the favourite as the favourite draws wide and whilst he has showed talent and has the runs advantage over them I think that Queen Caves gets the better set up and is good odds.

Stats and Insights

  • At Echuca racecourse, the width of the track widens from 18 metres to 33 metres in the straight. This, combined with the wide well-cambered turns makes it suitable for backmarkers to come on strong.
  • Gwenda Johnstone is the top trainer at Echuca racecourse, she has two runners at the course tomorrow so watch for them
  • 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.

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.
