Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to our usual Monday suspects with bumper eight race cards set for Ballarat Synthetic racecourse and Wagga racecourse and we come into this week off the back of an awesome weekend of horse racing betting across our Metro tracks and our Saturday racing tips did very well across the board as well as our best bets tips for this Sunday having our best bet salute and roughie yet to run at the time of writing this. I am keen to get stuck into this week’s racing however and have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as where you can get the best odds across the aussie betting sites / betting apps for these selections. Below the tips you will also find a small section on the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites. Follow me below for another good Monday of racing as we look to get some winners!

Best Tip: Ballarat Synthetic - R3 - #5 - Bluff Point

Bluff Point looks like he will be super competitive in this field, second up here for Luke Kennewell in what is just Bluff Point’s second prep at the races. He returned to racing at this track off of a twenty three week spell about five weeks ago over this distance and he seems to have returned very well. He set fifth and three wide through the run from an outer barrier and still chased strongly out wide to make some good late ground but wasn’t able to overcome the tough run and faded late. That was a brave first up effort and he will be sure to have plenty more to offer here second up and should get every chance in this field.

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: Wagga - R7 - #7 - Cyborg

Cyborg is surely over the odds in this field and I think can run a big race here. The six year old Gardner product has been given a short 7 week let up from the races and that looks the key to him as most of his wins have been recorded reasonably fresh. He’s also a track specialist here with three wins and a close second placing in four runs, giving him an overall strike rate at the course of nearly 50%. He last raced here over this distance when having drawn the widest barrier and setting last, making some very good ground late but never being a winning chance. He now gets Brendan Ward back on for the ride, who has provided a winning combination before and they map to find a decent spot behind the speed and be prominent late as long as he isn’t too far back in the run. Keen at odds.

Stats and Insights

  • Ballarat Synthetic is a spacious track and has a home straight that goes up and even undulates a bit and as such you need runners with good fight / ones that can run home hard late.
  • At Ballarat synthetic, runners outside of around the ten suffer at least a length’s advantage due to the uniquely challenging nature of the straight
  • Matty Dale is one of the top three trainers at Wagga Racecourse, he has three runners tomorrow that are all either favourite or second favourite in betting so look for them.

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.
