Best Bets of the Day

Racing kicks on this Thursday off the back of what was a great set of meetings in the midweeks with our free horse racing tips going very nicely and our best bets tips going well too with the best bet of the day getting up but overall it was just a great day with 4/6 of our bets winning, two at each track. I am keen to keep the momentum rolling and have picked out another overall 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: Hawkesbury - R1 - #1 - Big Shooter

I like the look of the Clisby stable’s Big Shooter who has had three runs to kick his career off and has looked very sharp in two of them before doing too much early work last time out at Kembla and fading late. The two runs before have both been at this track where he has overcome wide runs to power home into the placings in both and now gets a big claim, comes in nicely weighted with hard fitness and a better draw. I think he is ready to win.

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: Echuca - R3 - #7 - Zebedee Springs

There’s a bunch of unraced characters here who do look very smart but it isn’t enough to steer me away from Zebedee Springs for Patrick Payne who looks like an astutely placed horse for the stable and ready to fire third up here. He debuted at Moe when bouncing to the front of the run and only finding one better in the last 50m when fighting hard to the line before stepping out at Coleraine last time where he found the lead at the 200m, driving through a big field but was just outgunned late again to fall into third. He comes into this with a good draw to suit his front running style and now with hard fitness third up he should go well here.

Stats and Insights

  • 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
  • Contrary to many other Aussie racecourses, outside runners have an advantage in the straight at the 1000m at Echuca.

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.
