Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes to some slightly unfamiliar tracks this Monday with seven race cards at Wellington racecourse (NSW) and Corowa racecourse and I have delved into the biases at each track as to get a better idea of the courses before curating my best bet and best outside chance of the day and below my tips you will find those insights. We come off the back of a great Sunday where we managed to pick up our roughie of the day at $8.00 across the Aussie betting sites which was a nice way to close out the weekend and I am keen to keep the momentum rolling and as usual I have attached to the tips my best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as where you can get the best odds for these picks across the horse racing betting sites. There won’t be too many promotions going around across our betting apps this Monday but there should still be one or two and I have picked those out and highlighted them below the tips. It should prove to be a solid Monday of racing to kick the week off in a good way and I am keen to get some winners!

Best Tip: Wellington - R4 - #4 - Aussie Pharoah

Aussie Pharoah looks very well placed to back up his soft win last time out with another here for Mack Griffith. The three year old gelding was sold to Griffith from Maher and Eustace earlier this year and was putting in commendable performances until racing over the Mile last time out at Dubbo where he jumped odds on under Bullock and let the leaders get well out in front but just kept finding more in the straight to dig deep for a very impressive win, even if he may not have beat that much. He should be afforded a much more economical run this time round with no speed around him, and Bullock is more than capable of controlling things from out front. Nice price we are getting this time and I am keen on his prospects.

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: Corowa - R7 - #11 - Add Milk

Add Milk has been clocking splits that read very well for this field in his last few runs and I think that he is definitely over the odds in this field. He’s been handing in only good efforts since his win three back over this distance at Swan Hill, with a bunch of close placings. His last two runs have come over the 1400m where he has been honest, but not totally suited in those last 100m or so of the run and I think hard fit and back to 1200m looks like a great set up for him. He draws barrier one for this assignment and should slide just behind the speed from there and only needs the slightest bit of clear air from there to have a powerful finish for them in the straight. Top chance at odds.

Stats and Insights

  • Donna Scott is the top trainer at Corowa, she sends seven runners to the course tomorrow, some of whom are at big odds and can land some lucrative bets if they fire
  • Corowa racecourse is quite a tight track, with the majority of winners (up until the 1600m) emerging from the first few barriers
  • Wellington Racecourse has a 400m straight that has a downhill slope, this can aid runners who are near the front as it assists them in getting home, even if they might start to fade later in the run.

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.
