Best Tip: Brazen Kingdom #1 Mornington R5

Brazen Kingdom, trained by the one and only Petter Moody, really showed its stuff in the last race here, enjoying a bit of a breather in competition. And let me tell you, it's been no slouch over at Mornington either, consistently putting in solid performances. You know, just always seems to be cruising along nicely. When it comes to this track and distance, it's got a perfect 1-0 record, and when it's tackling that particular distance, it's a pretty impressive 1-1-1. But wait, there's more! That last win? Yeah, it was a sweet victory over 1500m, where it outpaced Co Co Van Winkle, no less. So, you know, considering all that, it's definitely worth another punt.

Best Roughie: Birthday Suit #3 Mornington R8

Alright, let's look into the Birthday Suit track record. This horse has got three wins under her belt and what's interesting is that each of those victories came at slightly longer distances, around the 1300m to 1400m mark. But let's talk about her latest win – it was a real showstopper over at Echuca back in September.She's charging down that 1300m track, leaving her competition in the dust. Now, fast forward to her comeback at Ararat over 1106m. She's playing it cool, hanging towards the back of the pack, biding her time. But then, just when you think she's out of the running, she kicks it into high gear. Despite some sticky situations on the home stretch, she pushes through, making a bold move in the final 150m and snatching up that second place spot. Now, let's see if the mare can take this race at Mornington in the last.

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.
