Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Gosford Racecourse and Pinjarra Park Racecourse amongst a bunch of other top country level racecourses and we have some pretty nice racing on the horizon for this Thursday. I have gone through the cards and picked out my best betting spots as well as found the best odds for these bets across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps. In the article below there are also the best promotions for these races and insights into the tracks amongst my free horse racing tips for Thursday.

Best Tip: Gosford - R4 - #3 - Mr Kennedy

Mr Kennedy looks like a moral here for Richard Litt. The six year old changed camps earlier this year and has looked very strong in some better company than this in his two starts since coming over to the stable. He had his first start for the camp at Wyong where he looked the winner a long way but was held up at a crucial stage and still managed to power home into second before coming to this track, where he sped to the front to lead and still had a strong kick on the turn but just found one better in the smart Ozzmosis. He looks very well placed now to go one better third up and sticking at the track.

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: Werribee - R4 - #8 - Angel Of Boom

Angel Of Boom has been going well this prep and looks very close to a win with three close placings in five runs this campaign and most recently he went into town at Mornington where he raced on the speed in a tough but honest run and fought hard to the line but just couldn’t get there over the quinella. He drops back now sharply in company, there’s not much speed within him which means he should find the front / speed quite easily early and will be hard to hold out from there.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Traditionally, promotions have been the primary means for bettors to gain an edge over bookmakers. These promotions prove beneficial by providing a safety net in case your chosen runner fails to win. 

Playup stands out amongst betting sites by frequently offering the advantage of refunding your bet with bonus bets for selected races on midweek and Provincial racing days, providing you with a second or third chance. Coupled with their favorable odds, Playup currently holds the top position in terms of promotions for Australian racing.

However, if you are seeking other betting apps that offer racing promotions  for this week it is worth looking at some other Australian bookies. On our onlyracing.com.au website we have a Punterspal review, Vicbet review and Palmerbet review which include the promotions that these betting sites frequently offer.

Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
