Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to the Pakenham Synthetic racecourse and the Sunshine Coast racecourse and we come off the back of great Saturday racing where my free horse racing tips did very well for the weekend and I hope you followed along and picked up some winners! Our best bets tips article didn’t go as well with the best bet running a half head second and our roughie of the day coming third. We look to go again tomorrow and pick up some end of week winners and I have run through both the cards mentioned above and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day. I have also gone across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps and highlighted where you can get the best odds for these picks. Below the tips you will find a small section on the best promotions going around across the betting apps. Follow me below for a very good Sunday of racing!

Best Tip: Pakenham Synthetic - R2 - #1 - Whisky Mac

Whisky Mac looks like a good thing going for Patrick Payne and seems to have resumed in quite good order and I think he will run well tomorrow. He resumed at this track three weeks ago over the mile where he made ground nicely from out wide to find the rail and kept finding the line to finish just behind the placegetters. There’s clearly intent by the stable if he’s taking a sharp rise in trip and he is proven at these distances. He recorded a nice win over the 2000m at this track last prep and gets a big jockey upgrade to Noonan now, only runs well IMO.

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: Sunshine Coast - R6 - #7 - Magic Mikey

Magic Mikey looks due for a win for the Foster stable and can hit hard here. He resumed off of a long 26 week spell on the Gold Coast Synthetic just over three weeks ago over the 1540m where he gave them a start before shifting out wide on the turn and starting a run home to get into third. He has two close placings in three runs at the course, should have plenty of upside second up and maps to settle much closer in the run. I think he goes well tomorrow.

Stats and Insights

  • Pakenham is one of the smallest tracks in the country, with only 1400m circumference and as such suited to front-runners and those horses with the ability to race handy to the pace
  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m at Pakenham Synthetic winners predominantly emerge from barriers 5-8 which suggests those horses who either fire straight onto the speed or those that sit just behind the speed have the greatest chances.
  • 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.
