Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar faces this Thursday with bumper cards set for Warrnambool racecourse and Gosford racecourse and we lead into this off the back of Wednesday’s listed racing at Bendigo racecourse and a great support card at Kensington racecourse. I think that it’s going to be an exciting day of racing this Wednesday and I am hoping we pick up some winners across our free horse racing tips articles. However, I am also keen to build a bankroll for this Saturday’s monstrous racing at Rosehill and Flemington and as such I have gone through the aforementioned racecourses and picked out an overall 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 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 Thursday!

Best Tip: Gosford - R2 - #4 - Heaven Bound

There looks to be a few decent bets amongst the favourites set to step out at Gosford on Thursday but I think Joe Pride’s Heaven Bound looks to be set up the best of them. He has had three runs since coming to the stable and the last was a very impressive effort here over the mile that saw him bumped at the start and recover into a wide position without cover and kept improving through the run and was surprisingly still strong through the line despite all that work. He draws wide here but I trust no one more than Schiller to find a decent spot with him and over 1900m now there will be plenty of time to time the run.

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: Warrnambool - R6 - #6 - Kathy's Beau

Kathy’s Beau has only had the three outings for Mick Freedman but looks to have been placed here with a fair bit of intent upon resuming. Seeing as he’s been placed over the 1200m first up and comes off the back of two trials, despite being ridden conservatively in them, the stable rarely places their runners poorly. His three career outings saw him win on debut before running a close placing the next time out and then jumping awkwardly when stepping out to a tough Sandown race and recovering enough to finish just behind the placegetters.

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.
  • Aaron Bullock has multiple bookings at Grafton tomorrow and rides the first three lines of betting in each of them so watch closely for him
  • Lindsey Smith is the top trainer at Warrnambool by some margin so look out for her runners tomorrow at the course.

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.
