Best Bets of the Day

We come off the back of awesome Group 1 races this past Saturday and we had a pretty successful day with our Saturday tips going quite well across the board and I am keen to keep the ball rolling, given that we pick up another win or two today (Sunday) with bumper cards set for the Pakenham Synthetic and Armidale racecourse and I have gone through both the cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day as well where you can get the bets odds across our aussie betting sites and then also outlined our best promotions across the aussie betting sites. Also be sure to check out our exotics tips article as we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. 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: Pakenham Synthetic - R4 - #7 - Mariner's Dream

Mariner’s Dream looks like a moral in this field for Annabel Neasham, given that he handles stepping onto the synthetic. He’s had a couple runs this time in for the stable and now looks to be approaching his peak fourth up. His last run saw him step up to just under this distance range where he endured a tough wide run and eventually got the lead, still having enough in him to fight hard to the line but just not being able to get there late when finding one better. There’s already been a subsequent winner out of that race and so the form has been franked, I think that he looks very well placed here to win under Mott.

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: Armidale - R6 - #3 - Come On Eileen

Come On Eileen looks like a solid bet in this field if she can get into a decent spot from the draw. The T payne trained runner has had a bunch of solid runs back from a spell but looks to have really gotten going in his last run where he stepped out over this track and trip and sat sixth on the rail before tracking the pace into the race and eventually kicking away to come just behind the winner, only beaten a length. He’s been turned around quicker now so clearly more intent here, will be better for the run at this track / trip and I think he is over the odds.

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 at Pakenham Synthetic 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.
  • At Armidale, runners outside of around the ten suffer at least a length’s advantage due to the uniquely challenging nature of the straight

Best Racing Promotions

Horse racing betting is always further advantaged for the punter via promotions which assist punters in getting an edge over betting sites. For racing these promotions are often extensive and frequent across the aussie betting apps and provide you more ‘outs’ to your bet that you wouldn’t normally be afforded.

Punterspal has stuck out to me in the last little while amongst the Aussie betting sites that offer horse racing promotions and is one that I would consider signing up to. As we are in full swing for the Group 1 races, Saturday’s become very useful to take advantage of the heightened promotions during the period.

On our website we have a Punterspal review that goes in depth into the bookmaker and their advantages and disadvantages as well as a Vicbet  and Palmerbet review which are bookmakers I also favour in terms of their promotions.

Promotions do tend to change frequently amongst the Aussie betting sites so be sure to check onlyracing.com.au to stay updated on the latest promotions.
