Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Ballarat racecourse and Coffs Harbour racecourse this Monday to kick off a solid week of racing and off the back of Saturday’s solid listed racing where we did very well with our free horse racing tips and hit quite a few bets. I am keen to get the ball rolling again this week and have gone through the two aforementioned cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day. In this article I’ve also outlined 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: Ballarat - R5 - #1 - Bower Boy

Gone very close has Bower Boy in two runs to kick the career off for the Hayes boys and I think that he shapes up well here third up to get the maiden win out the way now. He last ran at Benalla a couple weeks ago when stepping out as a short priced favourite but not getting any favours when being forced wide throughout the run, still finding enough strength to give a kick in the straight in a very impressive run but he just wasn’t able to go on with the winner there. Third up, from a good gate and hard fit he should be winning here.

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: Coffs Harbour - R6 - #6 - Better Explain

Better Explain is one I am taking a bit of a punt on as he has showed up with some mixed form in his three starts back this time in but I think that there was clearly some issues last time out at Rosehill and he now drops far back in depth, still hard fit and ready to atone for that effort. The start prior he was wide no cover in the early part of the run at Newcastle before working home very powerfully to place third in a strong effort. That race has had two subsequent horses win since and I think that fourth up now he can replicate and improve upon that two back effort.

Stats and Insights

  • The Coffs Harbour racecourse has a strong bias to inside runners up until the 1200m and from distances greater than that we see most runners coming from outside draws
  • Brett Cavanough is the top trainer statistically at Coffs Harbour Racecourse, he sends three runners to the course tomorrow who look astutely placed so watch what the market does with them.
  • At Ballarat, runners outside of around the ten suffer at least a length’s advantage due to the uniquely challenging nature of the straight

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.
