Best Bets of the Day

We come off the back of an exciting midweek meeting where we saw some future Group horses making their debuts for the top stables as we head to Thursday’s racing at Bendigo Racecourse and Hawkesbury racecourse for big nine and eight race meetings respectively. Unfortunately we couldn’t keep the streak alive on our roughies today but my best bet saluted courtesy of Blake Shinn’s steering at around $3.50 everywhere and we look to go on with it now with my best outside chance and best bet for tomorrow. I have found which Australian betting sites / betting apps have the best odds for these picks as well as any promotions going around across the betting sites for these picks. Follow me below for another great Thursday of racing!

Best Tip: Bendigo Racecourse - R5 - #9 - Lady Adelaide

This looks like a great set up for the Patrick Payne trained Lady Adelaide who has had three runs back this time in from a spell where he really needed the first up run before going to Pakenham two back at the end of last month where he sped over from the wide gate to lead and fought hard to the line to just fall short late into second. He stepped up to Saturday grade racing at The Sandown Hillside where he pushed along to lead and looked the winner at the 150m but his early work told late and was eased out of it. Should be hard fit now, comes way back in depth for this and can only see him running well here.

*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 Racecourse - R6 - #2 - Mr Bingo

Mr Bingo looks very well placed in this field for the Bailey stable off a handful of meritful runs where he has been mixing his form but can only go by his recent runs for how he should go in this and two back he ran at Wyong when sitting on the speed and chasing hard all run but just couldn’t get there on a smart winner who led them the whole way. Subsequently, he ran at the same track last time out but jumped in the air at the start and settled way too far off them to ever be in the race. He has 2 wins and a close 2nd placing from four runs at this track, strikes this race at a good time in his prep and is definitely over the odds here.

Stats and Insights

  • The Bendigo Racecourse is a very spacious circuit with long straights (24m width) and well-cambered turns (6% Camber) which makes it a great course for up and in runners and also lends opportunity to backmarkers to come on strong.
  • The Bendigo Racecourse has chutes for the 1100m and 1600m that sees runners go around one full 180 degree turn and generally sees rails in runners go over the best at these distances.
  • 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.

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.
