Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some familiar suspects this Tuesday with riper cards set for Grafton racecourse and Swan Hill racecourse and I am keen to keep the momentum rolling after a good start to the week in horse racing betting with our best bets tips doing well as our best bet got up at around $2.90 across all the aussie horse racing betting sites. In this article I have picked out another 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 sites 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 Tuesday!

Best Tip: Swan Hill - R3 - #2 - Lonjourno

I think Lonjourno looks very well placed for Maher and Eustace to get his maiden win here third up into his career as he continues to improve with each run. He came off of a six week break when racing here over the 1200m at the beginning of the month and really improved off of his debut when coming off the fence at the 200m and hitting the line with real purpose in a big field to come third when he just couldn’t go on with the exacta in the final 100m. He now draws a much softer gate and with Yendall on he will get every chance.

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: Grafton - R5 - #7 - Hard Truth

Hard Truth has been working towards a win since coming to Keith Smith and having three starts to kick his career off and I think he is getting very close and now comes into this super light with the 3 kg claim from Cassey Williams and from a low draw with hard fitness I think he looks well placed in what is an open race. His last run came over the 1300m at Armidale where he found the rail and made his way to the lead with a strong kick in the straight to only be overrun by one runner late. Very well placed now.

Stats and Insights

  • The Swan Hill Racecourse has a large circumference and a 475m home straight which gives backmarkers or horses that are best ridden with a sit a good chance
  • The Swan Hill Racecourse features wide sweeping turns for the sprints which gives outside runners a good chance to cut their way into the race mid race.
  • Grafton has a 400m straight with the home turn being a long sweeping turn which gives runners time to position themselves for big runs in the straight.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

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.
