Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns this Sunday to our usual Sunday suspects with eight race cards set for Wyong Racecourse and Sunshine Coast Racecourse and we come off the back of a great day in Saturday racing with my free horse racing tips going okay as we are now deep into the Group 1 races season it has become quite tough to pick heaps of winners in these competitive fields and our exotics tips went quite decently as well with one $10+ odds winner amongst those tips. Our best bets tips went pretty luckless however and I am keen to hit back hard tomorrow with solid cards at both racecourses. In the below article I have picked out my best bet and best outside chance of the day and where to pick up the best odds for these picks across the Aussie horse racing betting sites / betting apps. I have also posted a short section underneath the tips that includes the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites and that is worth checking out below. Follow me below for another solid day of racing!

Best Tip: Wyong - R4 - #8 - Stanczyk

Stanczyk surely atones for his last start here. He steps out fourth up here after running two sharp second places before going to the Hawkesbury last time out where he was ridden too cold under Serg Lisnyy and didn’t get a very economical run where he really had the ability to be right in the finish. He’ll be rock hard fit fourth up now, Aaron Bullock steps back into the saddle, draws a nice gate as well. 1500m out to 1600m now looks positive as well and I think with any luck in running he will be right there to claim this race. We’re getting a fair but solid price and I am keen to have something on.

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 - R4 - #1 - Fat Fingers

Fat Fingers looks like a pretty good bet for Stephanie Kendrick in this field and I am pretty keen to see how he goes here. The stable kills it up North on average and this runner has hardly put in a bad effort in his seven career starts, winning two of them and placing in another two. He comes back to racing here off of a 23 week spell and trialled about a month ago on this course on the inner part of the track where he looked to move along very nicely. He draws a good gate here, rates a fair bit on top of this field at his best and gets a key 3kg claim to offset top weight. I think he can speck first up here at odds.

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.

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.
