Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Ballina racecourse and Bathurst racecourse this Monday for two good cards to kick the week off in style and we come off the back of a solid day in Saturday Tips and Sunday has also been quite a good day in horse racing betting and I have run through both of the aforementioned racecourses and picked out a best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day. 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: Ballina - R6 - #7 - Maurizma

Maurizma has been running very well since coming over to Matty Dunn and I think should be strong again here. He’s had two runs to kick off his career under the new camp since returning from a 29 week spell and now comes here off the back of a sharp placing two back where he put the writing on the wall before shedding the maiden tag in great fashion. He can go on with it 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: Bathurst - R6 - #6 - Oneofthetwelve

Oneofthetwelve looks well placed here with natural improvement second up for the Seib camp. He resumed off of a 21 week spell at Wagga where he sat outside the leader and kicked at the 200m but just couldn’t get there over a few sharp horses. She should be very sharp stepping out to the 1400m from the 1200m now and I think only goes well here. Comes in at a nice price as well.

Stats and Insights

  • 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.
  • Ballina racecourse is another track that has an inside runner advantage with nearly 40% of the winners at the course coming from the inside three barriers

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.
