Best Bets of the Day

Our week kicks off with racing at Newcastle racecourse and Nowra racecourse this Monday and I am keen to kick the week off well after what was a good week of horse racing betting that culminated in our Saturday racing tips going quite well. I have run through the two aforementioned cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two of them. 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: Nowra - R1 - #3 - Time Bandit

Time Bandit faded from the front position to finish just off of the winner last time out at Nowra when he resumed from a 20 week spell and placed second in a very solid effort for the Baker camp at just his fourth career start. He should be fitter and sharper for that run and only really needs to live up to the expected natural improvement second up to be winning this.

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: Newcastle - R3 - #2 - Miss Adamas

I think that Miss Adamas has to be given some sort of a chance in such a small field where half of them are unraced and she has the runs on board and has been working towards a win nicely. She is a bit of a milk drinker having not broken through in thirteen career starts but came awfully close last time out when stepping out over the 1000m at Gilgandra and being trapped three wide no cover but coming on strongly despite the tough run to power home well and only be claimed on the line. Shapes up well here off the back of that.

Stats and Insights

  • Kris Lees has an impressive 26% strike rate at Newcastle and has a few runners placed in the racing at the track so watch closely.
  • Newcastle is a spacious and flat track with a 400m straight that gives almost all barriers an equal chance to run on.
  • Inside barriers are at an advantage at the 900, 1000 and 1100 metre starts at Nowra racecourse.

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.
