Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Flemington racecourse and the Hawkesbury racecourse off the back of some of the biggest racing of the year with our massive listed racing cards of The Big Dance at Randwick and of course, the premier staying contest of the season, the Melbourne Cup at Flemington. We got the money in the big dance at a massive price on Wednesday with our roughie of the day, Attractable, getting up at about $20 across the aussie betting sites. We are having a great week and I am keen to keep it going. It’s another huge day of listed racing with VRC Kennedy Oaks day at Flemington and I have run through both of the cards and picked out a best bet and a roughie of the day across each but there will be plenty of good betting spots tomorrow so make sure to utilise the track insights at the bottom of this article. I have also outlined where the best promotions are 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 a massive day of racing this Wednesday!

Best Tip: Flemington - R8 - #2 - Zardozi

Zardozi should be measuring up as the standout in the field here on the quick back up from Saturday’s run in the Wakeful Stakes where she hadn’t seen racing off a short break since the Edward Manifold Stakes where she won dominantly and Saturday’s run was full of merit given the break. I think now with the quicker turn around, Cummings has clearly had this race in mind and I think she will be tough to beat 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: Hawkesbury - R6 - #5 - Steely

Steely has to be respected here for the Ryan and Alexiou camp and I think looks very well placed here after having genuine excuses last start and that is why I think we see the price that we do this time round on him. He last stepped out in the Big Dance Wild Card a couple weeks back at Randwick where he was never in the race when opening cuts to both hind pasterns. The win prior was very impressive over the 1400m at Eagle Farm and I think he shapes up very well here hard fit now, in super light with Reece Jones aboard and this is well within reach.

Stats and Insights

  • Maher and Eustace are the top trainers at Flemington Racecourse so far this season and historically (last two seasons), they have a bunch of favourites and second favourites running tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my extensive Flemington tips.
  • Hawkesbury Racecourse is known to have a very real “home track advantage” and pro punters have affirmed that there are certain runners that irrespective of their form at other tracks, if they perform historically at Hawkesbury then that form is likely genuine.
  • Chris Waller is the top trainer at Hawkesbury racecourse and sends an assault tomorrow to the course so watch for his best runners

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.
