Best Bets of the Day

We come off the back of some super solid midweek racing at Randwick racecourse and Kalgoorlie racecourse with our Wednesday Tips not going amazingly but we still did quite well with a couple of our bets going over. I am keen to keep the momentum going this Thursday and have run through the cards at Gosford racecourse and Geelong racecourse and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as a short section on the best promotions going around across the horse racing betting sites and I think it is worth checking out as it is worthwhile to try to get an edge on the bookies as best you can. There are some further helpful track insights after both the aforementioned sections to assist you with your own horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great Thursday of racing!

Best Tip: Gosford - R4 - #1 - Azayaka

Azayaka looks to be trialling very well for the Ryan and Alexiou stable and seems to be ready to make his resumption run a winning one. He had two runs earlier this year where he placed runner up on debut before producing another close placing and then going back to the paddock for more work. She then stepped out for a Rosehill trial behind some very high level horses where she was ridden with plenty of intent to win sharply there. She ran the 900m in a bit of time. I think from the low draw, with Adkins on board she only runs well 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: Geelong - R6 - #2 - Miss Santorini

Miss Santorini looks to have really started going second up for the Santorini stable and can go on with it now. He resumed on the Pakenham Synthetic off of an 18 week spell where he didn’t run poorly before really clicking up last time out at Moe over the 1200m where he raced up to hit the lead at the 200m and was never in doubt from there and then kicking away to draw clear and dominantly win in a bit of time. He now looks well placed approaching peak fitness and stepping out to the 1350m third up from a good draw with a great jockey on and if he handles top weight he takes this out at a nice price.

Stats and Insights

  • Dylan Gibbons is the top jockey at Gosford this season with 10 winners in 50 runs. He gets five bookings tomorrow so watch for any of them at nice odds as of time of writing this.
  • Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott have three runners at each of Gosford and Moe racecourse tomorrow and all are at double figure odds right now. Whilst they might not be the strongest reps of the stable you would think they’re over the odds
  • The Geelong course proper is known as a track that gives every horse its chance as the circumference is 2043 metres with a straight distance of 400 metres

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.
