Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar faces with cards set for the Sunshine Coast racecourse and Coffs Harbour racecourse tomorrow and we come off the back of a solid day in racing this past Saturday with our best bets tips and free horse racing articles going nicely across the three racecourses and I am keen to close the week out in a good way. As such I have run through these two cards and picked out another best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as outlined 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 Sunday!

Best Tip: Sunshine Coast - R4 - #12 - Traviata

It’s been a bit of a trend recently with the O’Dea and Hoystead camp to send out runners who are either on debut or very lightly raced at these Sunday Sunshine Coast meetings and the majority of them have been going very well. This guy comes here after having just the one run at Doomben mid last year where he ran well without being a winning threat and now comes back to racing off the back of a couple trials, with the latest being a sharp trial win at Daegon and I think he shapes up very well for this assignment now. Go well.

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: Coffs Harbour - R5 - #9 - Boulanger

Boulanger is a smart horse for the Chujo camp who took his time to break the maiden tag but now that he has he can certainly go on with it. He resumed off of a 19 week break last time out at Murwillumbah over the 1200m where he found the rail, the lead and just kept going for an awesome all the way win. I think he shapes up very well off the back of that, more improvement to come and out to 1300m looks the natural step up in trip.

Stats and Insights

  • The Coffs Harbour racecourse has a strong bias to inside runners up until the 1200m and from distances greater than that we see most runners coming from outside draws.
  • 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.
