Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Doomben racecourse and Gosford Racecourse off the back of some exciting midweek races and we have two solid cards ahead of us at each of the courses. Our best bets tips and free horse racing tips both did quite nicely this past Wednesday and I am keen to keep the momentum going as we look towards the Friday racing and then Saturday’s big racing. I have picked out  a best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as 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. There is also an exotics tips page and our recently launched daily Multibet tips page. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Thursday! 

Best Tip: Doomben - R4 - #1 - Plundering

Plundering has to rate somewhat highly here for Annabel Neasham and I think is an honest favourite and likely one of the better bets of the day. She’s been coming awfully close in her past few without winning and comes here after last racing over the 1200m at Randwick where she was only run down near the line by a sharp horse in Contemporary. She rates very highly off the back of that effort and I think her fourth career win comes now.

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: Gosford - R3 - #5 - Up And Comer

I am doubling down on the Annabel Neasham runners with my bets tomorrow as Up and Comer is sent out for his fifth career start and he looks like a smart animal for the stable. He came off of a 28 week break from racing when placing at Orange first up before stepping out three weeks between runs and then winning very well at Wyong last time out. More upside to come third up and hard fit now he can win again and comes in at nice price here.

Stats and Insights

  • Over the shorter trips at Doomben (up until about the 1350m) outside barriers are significantly disadvantaged. Look for horses that draw inside or have lots of early speed and stay away from those that are backmarkers.
  • Dylan Gibbons is the top jockey at Gosford this season with 10 winners in 50 runs. He gets four bookings tomorrow so watch for any of them at nice odds as of time of writing this.
  • Gosford 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.

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.
