Best Bets of the Day

Magic Millions day is here at the Gold Coast racecourse and we have a massive card in Queensland with a bunch of listed racing that is supported by more listed racing at Rosehill racecourse and Flemington racecourse and I am very keen on these cards and have posted full length free horse racing tips on our website. In addition to those tips there is also an exotics bets posted on our site but in this article we focus on  our best bet and a few of our other bets got up across the aussie betting sites and I am keen to keep the momentum rolling into the weekend and have picked out another best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as outlined 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: Flemington - R8 - #2 - Sghirripa

I think that Sghirripa is just such a good horse for the Oxlade boys coming out of the Christmas Stakes at Caulfield where he absolutely floored the field when shifting out in the straight and letting down with real puprose to win very well. I don’t think this is a particularly strong race relative to that and he’s clearly been revved up for this. Go well.

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: Gold Coast - R5 - #2 - Warning

I used to love Warning when he was racing in the Heavy as anyone did but I think that from what we have seen lately in his runs he has become more of a genuine Dry tracking horse. He stepped out at Flemington first up and did really well on the speed before not doing anything in the Summer Cup a couple weeks later. Back onto the dry deck and a good set up, feels like he’s overs.

Stats and Insights

  • Contrary to many racecourses at the Gold Coast racecourse the track bias is skewed towards outside runners in bigger fields.
  • 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.
  • 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

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.
