Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some great courses this Saturday with bumper cards set for Randwick racecourse, Geelong racecourse and the Gold Coast racecourse and we have listed racing at Geelong racecourse and the Gold Coast racecourse. I have posted full length free horse racing tips on our website at all of the aforementioned courses and in addition to those articles there is also an exotics tips article on the site. In this article we focus on our overall best bet and best outside chance of the day and have outlined where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline 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 Saturday!

Best Tip: Gold Coast - R2 - #2 - Spywire

You would have to think Spywire just gets the job done here for Maher and Eustace after having only done good work in his two career starts after winning powerfully on debut at Rosehill and then clocking an extremely impressive runner up placing in the Wyong Magic Millions. He actually pulled up lame then so now that everything is okay again he will be so strong here I am confident.

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: Randwick - R8 - #19 - Tristate

Tristate has been on his game for a long time now as the stable is often able to produce and I think this guy does his best work fresh which he comes into this race set up well after not having run since Golden Eagle day where he just got tired late in the piece behind a smart winner. His trial was very sharp the other week and he’s won harder races than this.

Stats and Insights

  • Contrary to many racecourses at the Gold Coast racecourse the track bias is skewed towards outside runners in bigger fields.
  • The Geelong course proper is known as a track that gives every horse its chance as the circumference is 2043 metres with a straight distance of 400 metres
  • Randwick is a very wide track with a good run-in that makes it one of the fairest tracks around. It’s hard to say backmarkers are advantaged, but they are the closest thing to advantaged at Randwick Racecourse

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.
