Best Bets of the Day

Saturday racing has arrived and we have huge Group 1 races as the season is well underway with massive cards at Rosehill racecourse and Flemington racecourse with a bunch of high level, high stakes listed racing. There is also the Queensland Cup and big support card at Eagle Farm racecourse. I have posted full length free horse racing tips for each of the three tracks and in addition to our Saturday Tips there is also an exotics tips where we look to pick up some more lucrative bets and in this best bets tips I have picked out an overall best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as a short section on the best promotions going around across the Aussie bookmakers and I think it is worth checking out as it is worthwhile to try to get an edge on the bookies as best you can. There are some further helpful track insights after both the aforementioned sections to assist you with your own horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great Saturday of racing!

Best Tip: Flemington - R8 - #1 - Romantic Warrior

We briefly covered Romantic Warrior’s prospects in our news articles earlier this week but world class trainer Danny Shum brought him over from Hong Kong and a key confidence boosting point is how he has frequently beaten some of the best Japanese gallopers who have often dominated on local shores. He will likely be looking towards our even bigger races to come but class alone should carry him lengths here.

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 - #10 - Detonator Jack

Can’t ignore Detonator Jack for the Maher and Eustace camp in this race. He’s had two runs back from a spell this time in but has been given a solid break between them and now comes into this having been turned around a bit faster since last seen just shy of three weeks ago where he stepped out over this distance in The Sofitel at Flemington and just kept on coming to place third when edged out late and really having looked the winner a long way. Can’t knock him going into this.

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
  • Maher and Eustace are the top trainers at Flemington Racecourse so far this season and historically (last two seasons), they have a bunch of favourites and second favourites running tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my extensive Flemington tips.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Horse racing betting is always further advantaged for the punter via promotions which assist punters in getting an edge over betting sites. For racing these promotions are often extensive and frequent across the aussie betting apps and provide you more ‘outs’ to your bet that you wouldn’t normally be afforded.

Punterspal has stuck out to me in the last little while amongst the Aussie betting sites that offer horse racing promotions and is one that I would consider signing up to. As we are in full swing for the Group 1 races, Saturday’s become very useful to take advantage of the heightened promotions during the period.

On our website we have a Punterspal review that goes in depth into the bookmaker and their advantages and disadvantages as well as a Vicbet  and Palmerbet review which are bookmakers I also favour in terms of their promotions.

Promotions do tend to change frequently amongst the Aussie betting sites so be sure to check onlyracing.com.au to stay updated on the latest promotions.
