Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some of the premier tracks this Saturday with Group 1 races at Caulfield racecourse and listed racing at Randwick racecourse in addition to a great support card at Eagle Farm racecourse and I am very excited for what is set to be a massive day of racing across the three courses. I have thoroughly gone through each of the racecourses and posted full length free horse racing tips and in addition to those have also posted an exotics tips on our website. In this article I have picked out an 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: Caulfield - R6 - #6 - Spacewalk

A Caulfield sprint! I am excited for this one and like the look James Cummings’ Spacewalk has returned to racing. He seems to have come back very well with his return to racing off of a 16 week break at Warwick Farm being a dominant win in great time. He looks to have the race shape in his favour as well and anything above $2.00 is a great price IMO.

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: Randwick - R8 - #8 - Fawkner Park

If you have been following my racing tips for some time you would know I am a big fan of Fawkner Park for Annabel Neasham and it is good to see him come back to racing now. He hasn’t been away from racing for too long but now comes into this off the back of a very good trial win recently. The way he goes he should be deep in the field until the straight but will be thundering home then undoubtedly.

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.
