Best Bets of the Day

Black Type racing is back since the conclusion of the Group 1 races a few weeks ago and we come to Caulfield Racecourse, Randwick Racecourse and Doomben Racecourse for listed race action tomorrow with great cards on the horizon. As usual, I have extensive articles posted for each of the tracks in my free horse racing tips on our site but in this article I have picked out my best bet and next best bet across all the racecourses and attached the highest odds you can get at the time of writing across Australian betting sites / betting apps. Saturday racing is also the best time to take advantage of the promotions on our betting sites and just below the tips you will find a short section where I outline my most preferable promotions. Follow me below for a great Saturday of racing and let’s get some winners!

Best Tip: Doomben - R5 - #3 - Pocket Full

It’s very hard to get away from Jimmy Orman combining with the top Queensland stables, especially on less prominent race days at Doomben and Pocket Full seems to fit the profile very well. He is set to make it three in a row for the Kendrick stable and finds another winnable race. He resumed off of a twenty one week spell at the Sunshine Coast two back over the 1000m where he got the run of the race and won when tiring late in the piece before coming to this track last time out and showing big improvements with fitness to lead and easily win over the 1200m here with what looks like lots more to offer. Comes into this third up now, with more upside out to a very suitable distance and Orman retains the ride. Can’t see this going badly.

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 - #14 - King Of Hastings

If you have been with us for a while you will know it’s no secret that I am a big fan of the Anthony and Sam Freedman stable and we have been following one of their key runners in King Of Hastings since he resumed. He gets his best shot at winning now off the back of his first up run behind Lady Of Luxury in a strong BM94 where he only got clear air late and once he did he stormed home into third before racing in the Civic stakes here where he looked the winner and was just nabbed by Ucalledit late to go down second. He should be at his peak now third up and there’s not too much more to it, he should run well.

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.
  • Maher and Eustace are the top trainers at Caulfield Racecourse so far this season and historically (last two seasons), they have a bunch of runners set for tomorrow at the course so watch for them
  • Over the shorter trips at Doomben (up until about the 1350m) outside barriers are significantly disadvantaged. Look for horses that draw inside or have lots of early speed and stay away from those that are backmarkers.

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.
