Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to the Sunshine Coast racecourse and the Geelong racecourse off the back of the group 1 races this past Saturday and we went pretty well with our Saturday Tips, best bets tips and exotics tips. Our roughie of the day came in and we had two of three of our exotics bets come in as well for what was a very profitable day overall. I am keen to keep the momentum rolling off the back of that successful day yesterday and have gone across the aussie betting sites and picked out a best bet and roughie of the day as well as where you can get the best odds across the aussie betting sites / betting apps and in addition to that I have outlined the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites as there should still be some decent promotions across our betting apps. In the final part of the article you should find some helpful track insights for both the racecourses which should aid your betting at both the tracks. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Sunday!

Best Tip: Sunshine Coast - R5 - #4 - Raoul

Raoul is a bomb fresh horse for Chris Anderson who resumes here and will be having his first start for Anderson after coming across from Scott Singleton. He’s got a cracker fresh record with a win and close second placing from three first up runs and now has been trialling very nicely and looks revved up for a return to racing. He most recently trialled at Doomben at the beginning of last month where he really looked to be ridden with a fair bit of intent and won well. He gets the booking of Jimmy Orman and maps to get a comfy spot behind a genuine speed and should be launching late at them.

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: Geelong - R4 - #6 - Crown Harmonium

Crown Harmonium looks well placed to hit back hard here after a luckless last outing where he just couldn’t get clear air at Warrnackbeal. The two runs prior to that had seen him working very close to a win when just missing at Geelong over the this distance where he sat on the speed and still had a solid kick in the straight and prior to then also looked very strong over the 1400m on the Pakenham Synthetic. He is rock hard fit now, better for a tonne of racing experience and now gets the gun draw and with Hammond on and the big 3kg claim he gets in at just 54kg. I think definite overs for me and am keen to have something on at the odds.

Stats and Insights

  • The Geelong course proper is known as a track that gives every horse its chance as the circumference is 2043 metres with a straight distance of 400 metres
  • Geelong Racecourse is known to have an excellent wet weather racing surface, and we do see the sting out of the ground tomorrow so watch for any genuine wet trackers as they will have every chance
  • Sunshine Coast has open angled bends which give back markers a good opportunity to come from behind and win
  • At Sunshine Coast racecourse Barrier draws are of least importance at the 1300 and 1400 metre.

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.
