Best Bets of the Day

Follow along with me for the best free horse racing tips on race day! On Saturday, racing returns to Caulfield and Rosehill. It will be around 14 degrees at Caulfield and there's some rain around so the current good 4 rating may change. It's a similar story at Rosehill as there's a high chance of rain throughout race day so keep that in mind when betting. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Keep Reading #6 Caulfield R6

Keep Reading caught my eye when resuming, shortening from $10 to $7 and delivering a solid on-pace win. This horse holds its form well second up, sparking my interest for Saturday. After a seven-month break, Keep Reading stayed near the speed and boxed on to win by 1 length at Morphettville Parks in a Bm80 on May 18 over 1000m, beating Chosen Blonde with 60kg at $7.50.

Previously, it finished 4th of 14 at Morphettville in a Bm82 on May 13, 2023, over 1100m, 1.75 lengths behind Queman with 57.5kg at $11. This is a handy type that can measure up here.

Best Roughie: Heman #13 Rosehill R10

Heman has been freshened up and gelded since his last run, which I think could unlock his potential. Don't underestimate this Group 3 placegetter. He resumes after a 49-day break. Last start, he was 10th of 15 at Randwick in the LR S/Pacific on April 13 over 1400m on a slow track, 3.5 lengths behind Panic with 55.5kg at $19.

Before that, he finished 7th of 11 at this track in the G2 Phar Lap on March 16 over 1500m on a slow track, 5 lengths behind Zardozi carrying 57kg at $19. But he's a swooper to watch late in the race.

Stats and Insights

  • Caulfield Racecourse is a tighter track than Flemington and suits on pacers more until distances past 1600m.
  • It has been noted by stewards and sharp punters recently that being on pace and close to the rail has been the best place/places to be at Rosehill in recent times, a track that is known to change every couple months in terms of bias so take good note of that.
  • Caulfield - Track Rail Out 9m Entire Circuit. Rosehill - Track Rail +3m Entire.

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.
