Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Caulfield racecourse, Randwick racecourse and Ascot racecourse for three belter cards with listed racing at Ascot racecourse amidst the other high level contests and I have written 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 - R4 - #2 - Toesonthenose

Toesonthenose rates highly here for John Sargent, we had him in our horse racing tips last time out and I think just has to be backed again here. His win last week at Rosehill was very impressive given he had been turned around so quickly. If there’s gas in the tank still he wins.

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: Ascot - R2 - #7 - Elite Fighter

Elite fighter has looked very sharp in two runs since coming over to Rebecca Bayliss and should be around the mark here third up from a spell and making improvements as he did last run. He raced aggressively last time out over the 1200m here when just doing a bit too much and getting run off his legs to be swarmed by the exacta late.

Stats and Insights

  • 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
  • Caulfield Racecourse is a tighter track than Flemington and suits on pacers more until distances past 1600m.

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.
