Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Geelong racecourse and Gosford racecourse this Thursday for two solid cards and I am keen to keep the ball rolling into the weekend’s racing and off the back of a decent day in horse racing betting this past Wednesday and as such have run through both of the aforementioned courses and picked out another 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 - R5 - #1 - Storm The Ramparts

Love this horse for Joe Pride and I am excited to see him step out here after having two runs to kick off his tenure with Pride. The first of which was a smart win at this course where he beat the likes of Flying Rani before going out at Warwick Farm last time out and really looking like he would have won if not for taking a big hit from another runner that should have seen him well out of the race but he’s so honest that he just found enough to recover and chased hard to finish second. Hard fit third up, appears to be flying under Pride and should win this with even luck.

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 - #1 - Francine

Really not sure why the market is so aggressively overlooking Francine for Aaron Purcell here. There’s a short price favourite in this race which has obviously impacted a few of the runners but regardless Francine comes into this with a 69 rating after last having stepped out at Dunkeld where he lumped 62kg and still boxed on well to finish third and ran solid time. He now gets a massive 4kg claim to offset the top weight here and draws for a decent trail in. I think he’s massive overs.

Stats and Insights

  • Dylan Gibbons is the top jockey at Gosford this season with 10 winners in 50 runs. He gets six bookings tomorrow and a lot of them are favourite or near favourite.
  • 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
  • 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.
