Metro Grade racing returns to some of the top tracks in Australia this Saturday and we have monster cards at Eagle Farm Racecourse, Flemington Racecourse and Rosehill Racecourse with a handful of Group 1 races across the cards. I have compressed my best bets into this article in the form of my best of the day, and best of outside chances across all aussie betting sites / betting apps to provide you guys with the best odds. I have also provided some insights into the tracks and promotions for tomorrow’s racing.
Eagle Farm R5 - #2 - Foxy Frida
Andrew Noblet's Foxy Frida is currently in excellent form. The stable appears to have a strong interest in keeping her at the mile, given her recent performances. Her last two runs have been at this distance, with the latest being a fortnight ago in the G3 R A Lee at Morphettville, where she cleverly manoeuvred her way through the field surging clear and winning comfortably. Now dropping back to mares grade and will be racing at this distance for the third consecutive time. I think she’s one of the best things going around.
EAGLE FARM - R6 - #5 - Munhamek
Munhamek has been given a break since his last run in the Golden Mile at Bendigo back in April. During that race he was towards the end of his preparation and didn't perform at his best. Although he was initially set to compete in the BRC a few weeks ago, he was ultimately withdrawn. However, he has since gone very well in the jumpout work. He goes very well fresh and hasn't been kept away from the races for long enough that we should doubt him if the signals point to him still going well. Top chance.
Stats and Insights
- Track Bias for Rosehill is generally dependent on the ground and as we get a good track tomorrow, it is best over <1600m distances to look for front runners / those up on speed
- 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
- As the home turn encompasses nearly 700 metres of the course, backmarkers are often disadvantaged if they don’t have a top jockey on as it is hard to time your run well.
Best Racing Promotions
Traditionally, promotions have been the primary means for bettors to gain an edge over bookmakers. These promotions prove beneficial by providing a safety net in case your chosen runner fails to win.
Playup stands out amongst betting sites by frequently offering the advantage of refunding your bet with bonus bets for selected races on midweek and Provincial racing days, providing you with a second or third chance. Coupled with their favorable odds, Playup currently holds the top position in terms of promotions for Australian racing.
However, if you are seeking other betting apps that offer racing promotions for this week it is worth looking at some other Australian bookies. On our onlyracing.com.au website we have a Punterspal review, Vicbet review and Palmerbet review which include the promotions that these betting sites frequently offer.
Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
