Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some of our premiere Sunday racecourses off the back of a belter $12.7 million day at Randwick racecourse that is highlighted by the $5 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes and on top of that we had great support cards at Bendigo racecourse and Doomben racecourse. We now come back to Pakenham racecourse and the Sunshine Coast racecourse. In this article we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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: Pakenham - R4 - #5 - The Mighty Spar

The Mighty Spar comes over for his first local start for the Walker camp and looks astutely placed to go over at start number one here. He went away a 2000m winner at the beginning of last month at Matamata when dominating them from out front and clocking a great time and he now comes here with the benefit of a 2800m trial a couple weeks ago and looks ready to hit hard here first up over the 3200m in a small field. 

BookmakerOdds

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 - R3 - #1 - Daintree Dreaming

Daintree Dreaming looks very well placed to hit back hard here after what I think was a forgive run last time out for the Symons camp. He stepped out ten weeks between runs at this course at the end of last month where he was restrained and finished last when pulling up with some issues post race. The win prior at this course was beautiful when clocking some very nice late splits and he now comes here with a better set up and turned around for success.

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
  • Sunshine Coast has open angled bends which give back markers a good opportunity to come from behind and win

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.
