Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to the Sunshine Coast racecourse and Gosford racecourse this Sunday for the final racing day of the year as we look to bring in the New Year in a big way and we come off the back of a successful day of horse racing betting across the Aussie betting sites with my Saturday tips going quite well across all the tracks and I am keen to keep the momentum rolling here as we close off the week and have run through both the aforementioned race cards and picked out another best bet and best outside chance of the day and have outlined where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline 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: Gosford - R4 - #3 - Lady Extreme

The way that Lady Extreme won when stepping out for her career debut for Blake Ryan here is far too good to ignore and I think that after doing things wide and just behind the speed all run, to be able to shift out wider and rev up to smash them from the 150m onwards is just so impressive. She rates highly off the back of that, obviously we don’t know her ceiling yet and with Jay Ford aboard and well at the weights I can only see her going very close again.

BookmakerOdds
$2.20
VicBet$2.00
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 - #10 - Barbary Royale

I think that Barbary Royale is actually a very sneaky chance for the Gough stable having won one from two third up runs. She’s had two runs back from a 20 week spell in which she ran very well here first up before finding the ground just a bit too dry last time out and now comes back here with the sting out of the ground, which I think is the key to her, and also gets in hard fit third up, claimer aboard, lots to like.

Stats and Insights

  • Dylan Gibbons is the top jockey at Gosford this season and gets just two bookings tomorrow but they both look quite sharp so watch for them.
  • 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.
