Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Scone racecourse and Swan Hill racecourse for a belter set of Monday cards to kick the week off in style and I am keen to get stuck into things off the back of a great Saturday of racing with our free horse racing tips going quite well in the Group 1 races that took place this past weekend. We have some Sunday tips going around today as well so be sure to check out our best bets tips for today to try catch some late winners to end off the week. As for tomorrow, I have gone through both of the aforementioned cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as where you can get the best odds across our horse racing betting sites and then 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: Scone - R6 - #1 - Heika

Heika is one of the reps for the mighty Paul Messara stable that steps out at Scone tomorrow and I think he looks very well placed to roll the other joint priced favourite in what looks like a 2 horse race. He’s had just the three runs to kick his career off and after not producing his best in Saturday company at Doomben he went away for a spell and now comes back after 22 weeks with a sharp trial at this course in hand a couple weeks back. He clearly doesn’t need much to get going, as often is this case with this stable’s reps as he won on debut in smart fashion before producing a close runner up placing when next stepping out at Muswellbrook. He gets Bullock on for the ride, I expect them to be tough to beat.

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: Swan Hill - R5 - #2 - Boo's Reward

Boo’s Reward looks like a smart horse for the Egan stable and comes back to racing off of a 24 week spell now. He’s already picked up two wins in his short six run career with both of them being quite fresh, 1st and 2nd up. I really like his Benalla trial from just shy of two weeks back where he was ridden with a fair bit of intent and really hit the line with purpose to win it there. I think that he will need to put in a solid performance lugging the big weight but he rates well against these and can win at a nice price.

Stats and Insights

  • Straight which gives backmarkers or horses that are best ridden with a sit a good chance
  • The Swan Hill Racecourse features wide sweeping turns for the sprints which gives outside runners a good chance to cut their way into the race mid race.
  • Brett Cavanough is the top trainer at Scone racecourse by a solid margin and has around 8 runners at the course tomorrow so watch for all of those.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

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.
