Best Bets of the Day

We come off the back of a decent day in Horse racing betting this past Sunday with my best bets tips getting quite unlucky to not do better than they did with our roughie of the day being able to run into the placings at around $2.00 a place and our best bet getting no luck, having to do things tough out wide and I am keen to hit back hard this Monday with the cards we see at Newcastle racecourse and Benalla racecourse. I have gone through both of the cards and picked out an overall 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 apps and then also outline 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 Saturday!

Best Tip: Newcastle - R4 - #5 - Bangetta

Bangetta looks to make his resuming run a winning one for Kris Lees and I think he looks very well placed in this field to do so. He hasn’t been seen at the races since early June when stepping out at Eagle Farm in The Oxlade Stakes where he looked to be starting a good run on the turn but hampered at the 100m and was subsequently eased out of the race. He’s had a stack of very nice trials to lead him back into racing here and the last saw him step out here where he trucked along nicely before finding the line very well when second and I think  he’s been placed with intent here. Gibbons booked for the ride is positive and I am keen to see how he goes when he next steps out.

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: Benalla - R5 - #8 - The Talking Toff

The Talking Toff maps to be a lot closer in the run for the Gaskin stable this time around and I think that will be the key to him being able to get the win here. His last few runs have come at this distance and he now comes into this hard fit and ready to go over. When he last stepped out at Echuca over this distance he had to do things tough out wide and still find plenty to work home very strongly when placing third behind some smart horses. He now draws barrier three and maps to get every chance in the run and I think he only runs well here.

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.
