Best Bets of the Day

Spring is in the air as we kick off the Group 1 races season and we have some outstanding racing across NSW, VIC and QLD with listed racing at Rosehill racecourse and Flemington racecourse as well as a great support card at Eagle Farm racecourse and I have posted full length articles on each of the tracks on our website in addition to an exotics article that we recently launched and today saw us hit the first exotics bet for a $192 odd trifecta at 250% in addition to the roughie of the day going over in that same race at $8.00 odds that was in yesterday’s best bets tips which was just awesome to see. In this article I have picked out my overall best bet of the day and best roughie of the day across all three tracks and then highlighted where you can get the best odds for these picks across the horse racing betting sites. There are a bunch of promotions going around across our betting apps this Saturday to give us an edge on the bookies and I have outlined those and highlighted them below the tips. I think we are on for a huge Saturday of racing and am looking forward to it!

Best Tip: Eagle Farm - R3 - #3 - Tango Fever

Tango Fever looks like a moral on paper here. The super progressive Rob Heathcoate trained horse resumed at this track three weeks ago under Harley when making her debut for the stable coming from Gary Portelli and whilst she didn’t beat a whole lot, the time and the way she did things first up suggests big things are to come. I am happy to take her at around $2.00 odds if you can get that price and think that she likely lobs onto the speed and will be able to find plenty to fend them off from there.

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: Rosehill - R8 - #9 - Deepour

We took a look at what trainer Adam Campton had to say about Deepour’s placement in this race earlier this week in our news articles and he is employing the strategy of bringing in a hard fit, in form runner against the resuming runners who he knows might have more class than him and I think that Deepour is a genuine winning chance here. We were on him last time out when he was completely luckless last weekend and still was incredibly eye-catching when running home into third. He’s never backed up before and Campton insisted he wouldn’t go through with it if Deepour didn’t look rearing to go, so he clearly is and I think his fitness / racing edge might just see him knock these off.

Stats and Insights

  • We are set for North Westerly winds tomorrow at Flemington racecourse and it is important to note that for northerly and/or westerly winds outside barriers are advantaged at the course
  • 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
  • One of the most important track bias’ at Rosehill is for the 1100m-1200m races which start inside a chute on the course that affects the home turn in that it makes it almost like a hairpin turn.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions have historically been a great way for bettors to gain an advantage over horse racing 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.
