Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to the Sunshine Coast racecourse and Sportsbet Ballarat racecourse for a solid set of Sunday race meetings off the back of a riveting day of Group 1 races across NSW and VIC and we went quite well with a bunch of our tips in our free horse racing tips articles getting up, as well as some of our exotics tips but not our best bets tips so much. I am keen to keep the momentum rolling and have gone through both of the aforementioned cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also 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 - R5 - #9 - Zoumeteor

I am pretty keen on the resuming Zoumeteor for Stephanie Kendrick who is a bomb fresh horse. He hasn’t been seen at the races for 13 weeks since finishing down the track in Saturday company at Eagle Farm. Prior to then he was putting together some sharp wins / runs and I do think he goes better with fresh legs. In his two career preps he has run a close second placing (on debut) and has won the other start in his first up runs. He’s got multiple wins and close placings at this distance and a win at this track. This field doesn’t look overly strong and I think we are getting this price largely due to no public trials for the return.

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: Sportsbet-Ballarat - R6 - #5 - Mysweetmoses

Mysweetmoses looks like a strong horse for the Ryan stable and has only had the three career starts but has been given decent breaks between them and now has been turned around inside three weeks which signals intent. He won smartly on debut before going away for yard work for 15 weeks and has since improved in two runs back with the last coming at the end of last month where he went super close at Benalla in a big field to beat all but the winner who got the run of the race. Again, quick turn around signals intent, he seems to have a bit of talent and is coming into this third up hard fit. Top chance at odds.

Stats and Insights

  • Stephanie Kendrick sends a handful of very smart looking horses to the Sunshine Coast tomorrow. One of them is the best bet here but watch for the others.
  • Sunshine Coast has open angled bends which give back markers a good opportunity to come from behind and win
  • Ballarat is a spacious track and has a home straight that goes up and even undulates a bit and as such you need runners with good fight / ones that can run home hard late.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Horse racing betting is always further advantaged for the punter via promotions which assist punters in getting an edge over betting sites. For racing these promotions are often extensive and frequent across the aussie betting apps and provide you more ‘outs’ to your bet that you wouldn’t normally be afforded.

Punterspal has stuck out to me in the last little while amongst the Aussie betting sites that offer horse racing promotions and is one that I would consider signing up to. As we are in full swing for the Group 1 races, Saturday’s become very useful to take advantage of the heightened promotions during the period.

On our website we have a Punterspal review that goes in depth into the bookmaker and their advantages and disadvantages as well as a Vicbet  and Palmerbet review which are bookmakers I also favour in terms of their promotions.

Promotions do tend to change frequently amongst the Aussie betting sites so be sure to check onlyracing.com.au to stay updated on the latest promotions.
