Best Bets of the Day

Huge listed racing returns to Randwick racecourse, Moonee Valley racecourse and a support card at Doomben racecourse this Saturday and it’s a $9 million race day for the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley with two Group 1 races on the card there in addition to the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick and I am more than excited for the racing we see at both of the courses take place. I have run through both of the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips for each of the courses on our website where I outline my best tips for the feature races of the day at each course and have also posted an exotics tips where we should hopefully pick up some more lucrative bets. 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: Randwick - R7 - #2 - Tom Kitten

I do think that it is Tom Kitten’s time for Godolphin and we briefly covered his prospects earlier this week in my News article but I think getting out to the 2000m is very positive. He was too far back in the Gloaming when he last stepped out but was absolutely flying down the outside to nearly win the race when falling into second place there. He’s been waiting to get out to this trip and with Hyeronimous on he will be able to settle close enough to belt them late.

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: Doomben - R7 - #1 - Trifling

Trifling resumes for Helen page having not raced since the JJ Atkins where she finished down the track in an end of prep effort behind King Colorado. She does very good work generally with fresh legs however and whilst she does come into this lugging the big weight here the way tat she won a trial at the Gold Coast last Monday was too impressive to ignore. Could surprise these but wouldn’t surprise me.

Stats and Insights

  • There is a very clear frontrunning bias at Moonee Valley even up until the staying distance of 2000m+, when considering between two selections see where they map to be in the run.
  • 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.
  • 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

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.
