Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to a provincial level this Sunday with bumper eight race cards set for the Sunshine Coast racecourse and Dubbo racecourse and I am keen to finish off the week in a big way off the back of a pretty tricky Saturday with our Saturday tips being quite luckless but our best bet in the best bets tip got up and all three exotics tips went over for the wins which was a very nice saver for the day. Regardless, I am keen to pick up more winners this Sunday and have picked out my best overall bet of the day and best outside chance of the day and highlighted their prospects in this article as well as where you can pick up the highest odds across the Aussie horse racing betting sites / betting apps. Below the tips I have recently re-written a section on the best promotions going around across our Aussie betting apps / betting sites so be sure to check that out as there are quite a lot of good promotions going around for this Sunday. Follow me below for another exciting Saturday of metro racing

Best Tip: Sunshine Coast - R1 - #1 - Highbar

I think that whilst Annabel Neasham has a very nicely placed runner in this race that the King trained Highbar’s debut win was no fluke and that he has a high class animal on his hands. He debuted for the stable under the Dutchman Du Plessis at this track over the 1000m where he led and controlled the race and only got clicked up in the last 350m where he let down through his gears and powered away for a very soft win. He didn’t beat all that much there but the way in which he did was ever so impressive. The figures then backed that out where he clocked some of the best overall late splits of the day, all after leading… He looks well suited stepping out to the 1200m now and staying at the course with plenty to offer second up and Mark retaining the ride.

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: Dubbo - R2 - #2 - The Percentage

The percentage meets a very beatable field here for the Hazelton stable and rates as one of the highest differentials on rating to second in any of the fields set for Dubbo. He had a total forgive run last time out at Gilgandra where he was forced out wide and held up for a run in the straight and subsequently eased out of it. Prior to then he has been putting up ever so close placings and running some nice splits. He now gets the blinkers on and draws barrier one as well as coming back 100m in distance being suited to his run style and I think he is a top chance in this field.

Stats and Insights

  • 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.
  • Dubbo is renowned as a Bias Free track, where every runner is almost equally positioned to win over all distance ranges
  • Dubbo Racecourse is quite awkwardly shaped with only a 250 metre straight and some sharp turns it favours runners who are nearer the rails and on the pace.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions are an imperative aspect of horse racing betting and have traditionally been the primary mode of punters getting an edge over the  Aussie horse racing betting sites as you are essentially getting an extra shot at your bet that you wouldn’t traditionally be offered through promotions.

Punterspal, in the last few Saturday racing meetings, has stuck out to me amongst the Aussie betting sites that provide racing promotions and is one Australian betting apps I would look into, particularly when it comes to Saturday racing as we approach the Group 1 races season again this Spring.

On our site we have a Punterspal Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as other reviews such as Vicbet reviews, Palmerbet reviews etc 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.
