Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Randwick racecourse, Caulfield racecourse and Eagle Farm racecourse this Saturday for two solid cards in NSW and VIC as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season and we see some very progressive runners stepping out for these meetings. I have thoroughly outlined my best betting spots of the day and posted full length free horse racing tips pages on our site and in addition to those have also posted an exotics tips page and a multibet tips page. In this I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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: Eagle Farm - R3 - #12 - Sacred Feeling

It looks like it’s quite a tough day at Eagle Farm, at least early in the card, but I think that Sacred Feeling will relish getting out to the 1800m and seems like a very solid bet to kick off the day’s punting at the course. She last raced at Doomben a few weeks ago over the mile where she looked the winner before just being overrun late in the piece by a smart horse. She won at this track and trip this time last prep and should be able to replicate that again.

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 - R5 - #9 - Sharp Shock

A horse that the more I look into the more I like is Sharp Shock for Rob Northam and we had him a few weeks ago in the Wildcard where he wasn’t ever fully able to get into the run but gee was he good late when flying home into second place. Prior to then he ran home very well into second behind Bandi’s Boy when nearly claiming him there. I think he will relish stepping out at Randwick now and he is a proven swimmer, gets in light, I think I will have to have something on at the big price.

Stats and Insights

  • 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.
  • Caulfield Racecourse is a tighter track than Flemington and suits on pacers more until distances past 1600m.
  • 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

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.
