Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Tuncurry racecourse and Armidale racecourse this Monday for what looks like a good start to the week in terms of horse racing betting. We come off the back of very solid Group 1 races in NSW and VIC this weekend and I have run through these two cards and picked out another set of solid betting spots. In this article we focus on our overall best bet 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: Armidale - R6 - #6 - Zoffany's Gaze

I think that Zoffany’s Gaze looks very well placed to get his fifth career win here for the Mason camp and comes off two very solid runs in his last two career outings. He won two back over the mile at Tamworth when bursting clear at the 200m and never being in doubt from there. He then went out at Scone off of a four week break over the mile again when settling back in the field before getting going late and getting a touch unlucky when running home well again. He looks well placed for the step up in trip now and I am keen to have something on him 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: Tuncurry - R4 - #5 - Star Magic

Star Magic has returned well enough to racing, combined with how well Nathan Doyle is going with his training efforts recently I think that I just have to have something on him here. He returned from a 26 week spell a couple weeks ago at Scone when not being the best away and settling in the second half of the field and just being a bit one paced in the straight. He does generally need the resuming run, gets a much better set up this time round and I expect him to be strong here.

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.
