Best Tip: Eagle Farm - R6 - #3 - Ned’s Gully

Ned’s Gully has the highest overall rating differential to the rest of the field out of any field at the Eagle Farm nine race meeting on Saturday and now looks set to make his Eagle Farm debut a winning one. He resumed at Doomben in a midweek meeting over the 1110m where he clocked an impressive win from on the speed there and looked strong through the line so I think that out to 1200m looks ideal if not even onto the 1400m later on and is only second up now. Confident he wins this if he shows up.

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: Eagle Farm - R3 - #11 - Gaius

Not necessarily from a confidence perspective but Gaius looks like as honest a chance as any and being at around $13.00 at the time of writing presents as a really good betting spot here. He has finished close second placings in both of his last two runs where I think a win in either of them would have seen him be around a $5.00 pop here but both of the runs have been full of merit and the form reads well, particularly his close second placing to Release The Beans last time out and without a clear class horse in this race he can win.

Stats and Insights

  • 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
  • There is a very clear frontrunning bias at Moonee Valley even up until the staying distance of 2000m+, when considering between two selections see where they map to be in the run.
  • 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 the recent times, a track that is known to change every couple months in terms of bias so take good note of that.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions are an imperative aspect of horse racing betting and have traditionally been the primary mode of punters getting an edge over the  Aussie horse racing betting sites as you are essentially getting an extra shot at your bet that you wouldn’t traditionally be offered through promotions.

Punterspal, in the last few Saturday racing meetings, has stuck out to me amongst the Aussie betting sites that provide racing promotions and is one Australian betting apps I would look into, particularly when it comes to Saturday racing as we approach the Group 1 races season again this Spring.

On our site we have a Punterspal Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as other reviews such as Vicbet reviews, Palmerbet reviews etc 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.
