Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some solid courses this Tuesday with cards set for Bendigo racecourse and Corowa racecourse as we look towards another solid midweek set of cards and we come off the back of an unlucky Monday in horse racing betting with our roughie of the day being scratched and our best bet coming third in a luckless affair. I have run through both of the cards I mentioned before and picked out a best bet of the day and a best outside chance of the day. I have also outlined where the best promotions are 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 a solid day of racing this Tuesday!

Best Tip: Bendigo - R5 - #14 - Be Still The Earth

Surely it’s time for Be Still The Earth to break through here for the Griffiths / De Kock stable who, if you have been following me for awhile, you’ll know how much of a fan I am. He resumed off of a 19 week break from racing when he last stepped out at Pakenham for just his third career start where he looks to have returned to racing outstandingly, losing a bit of ground in the straight but chasing very hard despite that to end up second. That was first up over the Mile so you’d think natural improvement and fitness will carry him far here.

BEST OF THREE TOTES

*The Best Tote bet type pays bettors the hddighest 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: Corowa - R5 - #7 - Commands Success

Commands Success commands an element of respect resuming  here in what I think is a very winnable race for him. He is having just his eighth career start for the Reid stable and comes into this with no public trials but with the set up he has I think there is some real intent here. He’s raced in some tough races already in his short campaign but he’s trained here, does good work here and is two from two first up so clearly doesn’t take much to get going. Top chance.

Playup$11.00
VicBet$10.50
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.

Stats and Insights

  • Due to the shape of the Corowa racecourse, inside barriers have a significant advantage for distances that are 1400m + as runners that find the rail save key ground
  • 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.

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.
