There are always the best promotions on Saturday’s so make sure to check that out. I have also provided some track insights which should assist you with your betting at each racecourse tomorrow. Follow me below for another great Saturday of racing!

Best Tip: Randwick - R8 - #1 - Think It Over

I am such a fan of Kerry Parker’s Think It Over and I believe now is his time to shine after resuming off of a huge spell in the Winx Stakes, his first run since the 2022 Queen Elizabeth Stakes win. He looked to have returned very well to racing when being eased down at the 1000m after not being afforded that many chances in the run but showing that he was right there and should now sharply improve, rarely runs a bad race second and I think Nash on is the perfect booking.

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: Caulfield - R5 - #3 - Veight

Veight resumes here for the McEvoy camp and looks wound up to win off the back of a run earlier this year in the ATC Sires on a bog down Randwick track where he didn’t handle the going behind Militarize. Prior to then he put together two belter wins to kick his career off and now has had a few months to improve and return even sharper. I imagine that bigger races are in mind for the stable but he can take this out on his way to those without too much trouble.

Stats and Insights

  • Caulfield Racecourse is a tighter track than Flemington and suits on pacers more until distances past 1600m.
  • Maher and Eustace are the top trainers at Caulfield Racecourse so far this season and historically (last two seasons), they have a bunch of favourites and second favourites running tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my extensive Caulfield tips.
  • Chris Waller is the top trainer at Kensington and local representative, he sends an army of horses tomorrow to the course and has four runners in race six alone so watch for those.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions are an imperative aspect of horse racing betting and have traditionally been the primary mode of punters getting an edge over the  Aussie horse racing betting sites as you are essentially getting an extra shot at your bet that you wouldn’t traditionally be offered through promotions.

Punterspal, in the last few Saturday racing meetings, has stuck out to me amongst the Aussie betting sites that provide racing promotions and is one Australian betting apps I would look into, particularly when it comes to Saturday racing as we approach the Group 1 races season again this Spring.

On our site we have a Punterspal Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as other reviews such as Vicbet reviews, Palmerbet reviews etc 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.
