Best Bets of the Day

Check out the free horse racing tips and best bets for Thursday's racing at Kembla Grange and Wangaratta. I like the look of Like Lukey at Kembla Grange in Race 1. Also, for my roughie bet, I've got my eye on Ten Downing Street in Race 9 at Wangaratta. The track conditions at Wangaratta are looking good for racing. Kembla Grange has an 8 race card on Thursday, starting at 12:10pm. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Like Lukey #6 Kembla Grange R1

Like Lukey showed some promise at Taree last time and I think it's ready to win. In it's last start, Like Lukey placed 3rd out of 12 in a Mdn on June 9 over 1412m, on a heavy track, just 1.0 lengths behind Bright Legend (57kg) with 56.5kg at $4.00. Previously, 3rd of 11 at Newcastle Mdn on May 25, 2024 over 1400m. Has enjoyed success in wet conditions and the track conditions should be suitable.

Best Roughie: Ten Downing Street #10 Wangaratta R9

Last time out at Werribee, Ten Downing Street was right up there with the leaders and put in a solid effort. He showed great speed and battled on fairly well. This time, I think he's got a more favourable draw, which should give him a better shot. With that advantage, he's definitely among the dangers and one to watch closely. In his last start, Ten Downing Street was 60kg and ended up finishing 2nd, behind Cleitus (59.5kg) over 1600m after being right in the thick of things around the corner. Previously, 1st of 9 at Moe Mdn on May 14, 2024 over 1600m. Previous success running first-up in it's career and should enjoy the racing conditions at Wangaratta. In good form at the moment, so hopefully that continues.

Stats and Insights

  • The Kembla Grange course is 2200m in circumference with a straight length of 420m and this suites horses that run on strongly.
  • The Wangaratta Racecourse features a track with a circumference of 1,730 metres and a home straight measuring 300 metres in length.
  • The first 3-4 races in most meetings are called "Maidens" and these races are usually risky and unpredictable. This is because the runners are usually making their debut or have only had a few starts. So it's advisable to stay from these races unless you have a good bankroll.

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.
