Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Swan Hill racecourse and Grafton racecourse this Saturday for two solid cards of racing to end the week off and we come off the back of a very successful day in horse racing betting with a bunch of our bets across our free horse racing tips articles getting up across the Aussie betting sites. I have posted an exotics tips page and a multi bets tips page on our site. In this article we focus on our overall best bet and best outside chance of the day.  I’ve 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: Grafton - R6 - #6 - Maximum Vortex

Maximum Vortex rates highly here for the Ensby camp and comes here chasing his fifth win at his tenth career start. He last raced off of a four week break when showing pace to lead at Grafton and slipping away in the straight and whilst he got tired late he was well in front and won well. I think that he will only be improved off the back of that effort, gets turned around a lot quicker for this assignment and from another good low draw I think he will be prominent here.

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: Swan Hill - R6 - #2 - Rutilant

Rutilant comes back to racing here off of a 13 week break and he generally runs very well for the Hird camp with fresh legs. He’s got a win and a second placing in four first up runs and gets a low draw here, LLoyd aboard and with no real speed around him he should be able to lob into a decent spot early and be hard to catch from there. Rates highly and is over the odds for me.

Stats and Insights

  • Grafton has a 400m straight with the home turn being a long sweeping turn which gives runners time to position themselves for big runs in the straight.
  • The Swan Hill Racecourse has a large circumference and a 475m home straight which gives backmarkers or horses that are best ridden with a sit a good chance
  • The Swan Hill Racecourse features wide sweeping turns for the sprints which gives outside runners a good chance to cut their way into the race mid race.

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.
