Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some familiar provincial tracks with bumper seven race cards set for Goulburn racecourse and Swan Hill racecourse and I am keen to get the ball rolling hard this week as we approach another weekend of great group 1 races. I have, as usual, run through both of the cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day.  In addition to the tips I have outlined below there is a short section on the best promotions going around across the horse racing betting sites and I think it is worth checking out as it is worthwhile to try to get an edge on the bookies as best you can. There are some further helpful track insights after both the aforementioned sections to assist you with your own horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great Monday of racing!

Best Tip: Goulburn - R5 - #2 - Stasera

Starsea has been knocking on the door and I think now gets as good a chance as any at a good price to go over here. He’s had three runs back from a spell this time in and really looks to have clicked up in his past couple with the last run being at Nowra where he was three weeks between runs. He stepped out there where he crossed and led, finding the rails and still found plenty in the straight but the horse that trailed him in managed to claim the race in the dying metres. He looks to come into this hard fit, with plenty of momentum on his side and meets a beatable field.

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: Swan Hill - R5 - #6 - The Geisha

The Geisha I think is being overlooked in this field and a last start winner at a provincial track in a reasonably soft field is always a set up I am interested in. This Deanna Taylor product has only had the three race starts and debuted untrialled so I think that the first two were really to build confidence / race fitness before he stepped out at Hamilton over the 2200m last time out and raced two wide all trip before hitting the lead at the 500m, giving a strong kick in the straight to get a way in front of them and then being eased out near the line for a strong win in good time. He now looks very well placed for the extra 200m as well as this not being an overly strong race and I think he only runs well here at a really good price.

Stats and Insights

  • The Swan Hill Racecourse has a large circumference and a 475m home straight which gives backmarkers or horses that are best ridden with a sit a good chance
  • The Swan Hill Racecourse features wide sweeping turns for the sprints which gives outside runners a good chance to cut their way into the race mid race.
  • Goulburn Racecourse features a 400-metre home straight and is generally regarded as a fair track and offers good runs all turns.

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.
