In the article below I have picked out another best bet and a roughie of the day across each of the track and also posted full length free horse racing tips articles but there will be plenty of good betting spots tomorrow so make sure to utilise the track insights at the bottom of this article. I have also outlined where the best promotions are 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 a massive day of racing this Saturday!

Best Tip: Sunshine Coast - R8 - #4 - Knight’s Choice

I love Knight’s Choice and he finally gets a set up for him to win. He was looking towards the Golden Eagle and raced in it eventually two weeks ago but he was set up so poorly for it and still ran well in defeat when having to be very deep for the majority of the run. He comes back to his home track now, maps to do no work here and if he brings his best he surely wins this. Happy to make him my best bet of the day.

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: Caulfield - R6 - #6 - Run Harry Run

Run Harry Run comes up at a big price and I think he is a winning chance here. He’s a beautifully bred animal who is a sizeable horse and is still green but gee does he move well. He won the Bendigo Cup last time out in a tough effort and of course this is a big step up in competition but I have a sneaky suspicion he will rise to the occasion and am keen to see how he goes here.

Stats and Insights

  • Caulfield Racecourse is a tighter track than Flemington and suits on pacers more until distances past 1600m.
  • Sunshine Coast has open angled bends which give back markers a good opportunity to come from behind and win
  • At Sunshine Coast racecourse Barrier draws are of least importance at the 1300 and 1400 metre.
  • Newcastle is a spacious and flat track with a 400m straight that gives almost all barriers an equal chance to run on

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.
