Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Scone racecourse and Mackay racecourse off the back of a luckless Monday in horse racing betting with our best bets tips going luckless but we are looking to hit back hard in advance of Wednesday racing where we look set to have a big midweek meeting so I am keen to pick up a few winners in advance of the midweeks. I have picked out a best bet and roughie of the day as well as where you can get the best odds across the aussie betting sites / betting apps and in addition to that I have outlined the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites as there should still be some decent promotions across our betting apps. In the final part of the article you should find some helpful track insights for both the racecourses which should aid your betting at both the tracks. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Tuesday!

Best Tip: Scone - R4 - #4 - Harlow Mist

Harlow Mist looks like a good thing going for John Sargent and I think if he can beat second up syndrome he’s going to look lethal in this field. He debuted for the stable after being patiently worked along in a bunch of trials at Goulburn mid last month on a Heavy track where he sat 4th and two wide in the run before coming off heels to chase hard in the straight and he just kept finding another gear to get the bob of the heads in the final stride there. Reece Jones sticks, he gets in at 57kg again and will have plenty more to offer only second up here off the back of his debut run.

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: Mackay - R5 - #8 - Cochrane

Cochrane maps to get every chance here from the low barrier and should get the right kind of run to be prominent late. He rarely runs a bad race at this course and picked up a win here three runs back over 100m dearer than this when wide all run and still able to take the field out. Last time out he stepped out at Bluff in a BM65 in a small field of 5 over this distance when racing well on the speed but just finding one better late in a smart winner. He has been wound up again for a quick turn around with that run coming only a week ago and he gets in with no weight on his back at just 51kg after the claim from Molloy which should give him even greater chances. Keen to have something on at the price.

Stats and Insights

  • Aaron Bullock is the top Jockey at Scone Racecourse with a 22% strike rate. He gets a booking in most of tomorrow’s races at the course so watch out for his rides, I have outlined a few of them in my racing tips articles on the site.
  • Mackay racecourse has circular shape and is only 18m in width. The track is always turning and is tough away from the rails.
  • Brett Cavanough is the top trainer at Scone racecourse by a solid margin and has 5 runners at the course tomorrow so watch for all of those.

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.
