Best Bets of the Day

Saturday is finally here after what has already been an awesome week in racing and I have a great feeling about the weekend and am very excited for racing after running through all three race cards and finding some great betting spots across our Aussie betting sites. I have posted full length free horse racing tips for each track on our site and in this article I will pick out my overall best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day as well as where you can get the best odds across the Aussie betting apps and then below the tips you will find a section on the best promotions going around on the betting sites so be sure to check that out as Saturday is the best day of the week for horse racing promotions. Our Friday racing tips went amazingly, with a clean sweep at Echuca, going three from three including a $9.50 roughie of the day winner so I hope you were following and built a bit of a bankroll for Saturday’s racing. I am keen to get stuck into things so follow me below for an outstanding day of Saturday racing below. Also be sure to check out our recently launched exotics tips article for some more lucrative bets, if one of those hit we will be laughing our way to the pub.

Best Tip: Randwick - R7 - #4 - Mogo Magic

Everyone and their mother is talking about Mogo Magic this weekend and we had him in our Saturday tips at the beginning of the month at Rosehill where he saluted dominantly. We also outlined his prospects moving forward and the stable’s plans for him in one of the News articles a couple weeks back and it does seem like things are going to plan. Now,  He’s had a month between runs now and comes back to racing to secure himself a win and a ticket into The Kosciuszko. He gets another honest test here but he has passed all four he has been given so far and always have to beware the unbeaten horse. Keen to be in his corner again.

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: Moonee Valley R3 - #10 - Sacred Bull

If Sacred Bull can settle anywhere near the speed or even just off the pace and not right at the tail of the field I am confident he will take this out. He’s got killer late splits based on how he returned to racing at Bairnsdale where he essentially raced against himself but his run style, splits and the way he moved along to win was very impressive for a soft maiden kill there. He’ll almost certainly settle back in the field but at this distance range he will have plenty of time to come on.

Stats and Insights

  • 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
  • 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 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.
