Best Bets of the Day

Massive day of racing this Saturday with cards set for Randwick racecourse, Ballarat racecourse and Ascot racecourse and we have listed racing at Randwick and Ascot as well as one of the final Group 1 races of the year at Ascot. As usual I have posted full length free horse racing tips articles that have been posted on our site but in addition to those I have also posted an exotics tips article where we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. In this article we focus on our overall best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as 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: Randwick - R6 - #9 - I’mintowin (BEST BET)

I'm Intowin is a deserving favourite here and I am keen to have something on him here as the race prior might be bigger but it has too many winning chances to get involved in. He came over from New Zealand and now races under Gaibott and has had the two runs for the stable when winning well on debut before last stepping out behind Wineglass Bay a couple weeks ago at Newcastle. Third up, ready for this trip, should be strong here if he sees it out.

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: Ballarat - R8 - #2 - Just Folk

Just Folk has been turned around quickly for this assignment but I think he is as good of a chance as any here, He stepped out for the Bedggood stable in the 1800m G3 race last week at Caulfield as a long priced favourite but saluted very very well when taking on a solid amount of weight and showing so much fight to hold on when he had every reason to lose. Well placed here to do the double from a good gate and better at the weights.

Stats and Insights

  • Ballarat is a spacious track and has a home straight that goes up and even undulates a bit and as such you need runners with good fight / ones that can run home hard late.
  • Ascot racecourse has quite a short home straight and as such the track generally plays hard and fast and favours on pacers as such.
  • 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.
