Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Randwick racecourse, Caulfield racecourse and Eagle Farm racecourse as one of the premier race days in the country is among us with the TAB Everest being contested for a record share of $20 million prize money and in addition to that we have four Group 1 races across the NSW and VIC cards with a great support card in Queensland. I have run through all the cards extensively and picked out my best bets and published in depth free horse racing tips across the three cards and in addition to those tips we also have an exotics tips article on our site with one exotics tip for each of the tracks. However, in here I have taken my 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 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: Randwick - R9 - #2 - Mr Brightside

We covered the prospects of Mr Brightside in our news article earlier this week and I really do think that he is going to cement himself here as the best horse in the country over this distance. He’s won all three of his runs this time in with the latest being even more impressive than I expected in the Makybe Diva where he had only run prior with tempo on but made a mess of them even with no tempo this time. I just don’t see how he gets beaten and at this track he has only gone 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: Eagle Farm - R7 - #5 - Pacific Vampire

Pacific Vampire makes his debut for Adam Campton after coming over from NSW when he was with Mark Newnham and I think that given he was racing in the city in Sydney, that form will hold him in great stead here and I am keen to have a throw at him at odds in what looks like a beatable field. He’s had a very sharp trial to ready him for this race and historically has gone well with fresh legs. If he can get into a decent spot he will be prominent here I am confident.

Stats and Insights

  • 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 favourites and second favourites running tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my extensive Caulfield tips.
  • 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
  • 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

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.
