Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Rosehill racecourse, Caulfield racecourse and Eagle Farm racecourse as racing really starts to heat up as the Autumn Group 1 races season approaches and we have listed racing at the first two mentioned cards in which I have gone through the cards thoroughly and posted full length free horse racing tips on our site and in addition to those articles I have also posted an exotics tips article and our recently launched multibet tips article. As for this article we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as outlined 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 Friday! 

Best Tip: Rosehill - R5 - #6 - Lady Of Camelot

Another sharply placed favourite is Lady Of Camelot for the Waterhouse and Bott stable as she looks set to take her place in the Slipper with a win here. She made her racing debut in the Gimcrack back in September where she ran very well considering she was caught wide with no cover through the whole trip when placing fourth there to Manaal. Her two trials have been blitzing and she rates highly here now.

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 - R8 - #2 - Rich Fortune

Rich Fortune has to rate as one of the best value bets of the day after she has just not been able to find enough late in her last two runs but still having been strong to the line both times. Her most recent run came at Geelong over the 1100m where he probably just needed a bunny to chase. I think he now gets that and will be one of the strongest late with the additional 100m suiting his run style.

Stats and Insights

  • 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.
  • Eagle Farm has little barrier bias as the track has quite even wide turns and as such it is good to look for promising backmarkers for the long straight
  • Caulfield Racecourse is a tighter track than Flemington and suits on pacers more until distances past 1600m.

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.
