Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Randwick racecourse, Moonee Valley racecourse and Doomben racecourse for three very exciting meetings to close out the year and as usual on our site you can find full length free horse racing tips and in addition to those we also have an exotics bets article for some more lucrative bets but in here I am focusing on my 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 - R6 - #7 - Lousiville

You have to be in the corner of Chris Waller here with Louisville who looks like one of the best bets of the day and has run over the 1400m in his last two trips with the most recent being a fortnight back where he came from around last in the run to close home powerfully and run second place to Felix Majestic. He now gets out to the 1600m which looks positive based on his run style and I think he is going to be very tough to beat here.

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 - R6 - #8 - Typhoon Harmony

I think that Typhoon Harmony can be one of the better double figure odds bets of the day here for the Gelagotis camp combining with Jye McNiel. He got very tired two back when racing over this trip but they changed the tactics last time out, rode him a bit more conservatively and he relished it, powering home to place very well then. He looks ready to peak here and can win now.

Stats and Insights

  • 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
  • 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.

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.
