Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some exciting tracks this Saturday with solid cards set for Rosehill racecourse, Caulfield racecourse and Doomben racecourse with listed racing at the first two tracks. I have extensive free horse racing tips posted for each track on our website so check those articles out to get the best bets for each track individual on race day. However, in this article I have gone and picked an overall best bet of the day and best roughie of the day as well as where you can get the best odds across the aussie betting sites / betting apps for these selections. Below the tips you will also find a small section on the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites. There are often very solid promotions running across the betting sites on a Saturday so I would definitely recommend checking that out. Follow me below for a great Saturday of racing!

Best Tip: Caulfield - R4 - #8 - Mollynickers

Mollynickers is going to be tough to beat here for Peter Moody. So far, she has had just two career outings. In her latest outing, a 1200m Moe Maiden, she showed great determination in the final 200 meters, finishing strongly after never being in trouble and winning comfortably. She’s second up now with that last time effort coming after an 18 week break, she now steps up to the 1400m distance and should have plenty to offer. I don’t see too many being able to trouble her here. Keen.

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: Rosehill - R5 - #3 - So Good So Cool

So Good So Cool is A Sara Ryan four year old who is a 1200m specialist and comes into this hard fit and off the back of a run in an 1100m Randwick race three weeks ago where he only started to get warm when the smart Insurrection runner up Brudenell were going through the line. He meets Brudenell again here in this contest but now out the distance where So Good So cool excels and where Brudenell may drop off in that last 100m. Before that run he put together two sharp 1200m wins and with Gibbo aboard from gate one they are sure to be prominent once again.

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.
  • Over the shorter trips at Doomben (up until about the 1350m) outside barriers are significantly disadvantaged. Look for horses that draw inside or have lots of early speed and stay away from those that are backmarkers.
  • One of the most important track bias’ at Rosehill is for the 1100m-1200m races which start inside a chute on the course that affects the home turn in that it makes it almost like a hairpin turn.

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.
