Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Dubbo Racecourse and the Pakenham Synthetic for some familiar Monday meetings off the back of an awesome weekend to close out the Group 1 racing season at Randwick Racecourse, Eagle Farm Racecourse and Caulfield racecourse. I have gone through both the Dubbo and Pakenham Synthetic cards and picked out my best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as which Aussie betting sites / betting apps have the best odds for these picks. I’ve also outlined which promotions are going around at the betting sites to get a further edge on the bookies. Follow me below for another solid day of Monday racing!

Best Tip: Pakenham Synthetic - R5 - #10 - Shebrings Beauty

The locally trained Shebrings Beauty for Matty Smith is going to be tough to beat here off the back of three consecutive close placings. He ran two back at Sale over the 1400m where he raced tough out wide and kept finding the line to just miss and place second there in an effort that really looked like she wanted longer. She then came to this track a few weeks back over the same trip and looked to handle the Synthetic well when making heaps of late ground but again just not being able to get there and looking for longer. He sticks at the course now, is hard fit and finally gets the extra 200m he has been looking for. Will be hard to beat here.

*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: Dubbo Racecourse - R6 - #3 - Brogans Creek

I am looking for genuine wet trackers tomorrow at Dubbo racecourse and have landed on the Nick Heywood trained Brogans Creek who looks to have found a bit of form in recent times and should go very well here. He raced two back at Wellington in a strong BM58 on similar going and looked to really relish the track conditions there when hitting the front at the top of the straight in a big effort to just go down late into second place. He then came to this track for the Winter Qualifier where he sat on the rails behind the speed and battled on well but just didn’t fully look himself but finished just behind the placegetters and was far from disgraced there. Stays at the course, hard fit and from the low draw they will have plenty of options. I think he will look a lot shorter than the quote we see now of around $8.00.

Stats and Insights

  • Pakenham is one of the smallest tracks in the country, with only 1400m circumference and as such suited to front-runners and those horses with the ability to race handy to the pace
  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m across both these courses winners predominantly emerge from barriers 5-8 which suggests those horses who either fire straight onto the speed or those that sit just behind the speed have the greatest chances.
  • Dubbo Racecourse is quite awkwardly shaped with only a 250 metre straight and some sharp turns it favours runners who are nearer the rails and on the pace.

Best Racing Promotions

Traditionally, promotions have been the primary means for bettors to gain an edge over bookmakers. These promotions prove beneficial by providing a safety net in case your chosen runner fails to win. 

Playup stands out amongst betting sites by frequently offering the advantage of refunding your bet with bonus bets for selected races on midweek and Provincial racing days, providing you with a second or third chance. Coupled with their favorable odds, Playup currently holds the top position in terms of promotions for Australian racing.

However, if you are seeking other betting apps that offer racing promotions  for this week it is worth looking at some other Australian bookies. On our onlyracing.com.au website we have a Punterspal review, Vicbet review and Palmerbet review which include the promotions that these betting sites frequently offer.

Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
