Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to our usual Thursday customers with nice cards set for Pakenham racecourse and Wyong racecourse to continue the week with two solid cards in NSW and VIC as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season, coming off the back of one of the biggest Saturday race days of the season. In this I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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: Pakenham - R8 - #6 - Smokin' Princess

Smokin’ Princess is an incredibly impressive horse for Michelle Payne that has probably looked the best thing going around in 1600m Pakenham races thus far this season and I think that she is going to shape up very well here. She is very well suited on the big track and now gets Billy Egan on board who should be able to steer her to the middle of the track at the right time and see her let down powerfully. She’s just such a strong type that I don’t think the extra 2kg will be an issue here at all and she’s trialled brilliantly in these conditions before so go very 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: Wyong - R7 - #2 - Vindication

Vindication is a third up winner in the past and comes here off the back of two runs where he has had genuine excuses so I think with the good set up here he easily goes on top for me. He was a couple weeks between runs when last stepping out at The Hawkesbury and coming from the tail of the field to shift out widest on the turn and power home to finish third in a flash finish. He now draws his first good gate of the prep, is hard fit and comes in at a big price. Keen for him to step out tomorrow.

Stats and Insights

  • The Wyong racecourse is near circular, offering runners with more dynamic run styles and those that handle bendy tracks a big advantage, also gives those close to the rail an advantage in sprints
  • Maher and Eustace send a bunch of sharp looking horses to Wyong racecourse tomorrow so watch out for them.
  • Pakenham is one of the smallest tracks in the country, with only 1400m circumference and as such suited to front-runners and those horses with the ability to race handy to the pace

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.
