Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Grafton Racecourse and Newcastle Racecourse this Tuesday off the back of an exciting weekend in horse racing betting with our full length free horse racing tips on Saturday going quite nicely with our best bet at ⅔ of the tracks getting up and a few of our other tips getting up across the Aussie betting sites. I am keen to get the week started off right and in this article we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as outlined our best promotions 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 another great day of racing this Tuesday! 

Best Tip: Grafton - R2 - #5 - Cool Machine

Cool Machine comes into this third up and ready to fire and is the one to beat for me. He’s had two runs back from a 22 week spell for the Dodson camp and I think now he rates highly here third up. He ran a very game second placing at Coffs Harbour first up where he looked the winner a long way before just being chased down late by one smart horse. He next stepped out at the track again where he didn’t get the easiest of runs, trapped out wide for the run but still came on strong at the end to finish midfield. He would have retained a huge fitness benefit off of that run and I think he goes well here now, the one to beat.

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: Stony Creek - R5 - #5 - Tornado's Sister

Tornado’s Sister hasn’t put in a bad effort in two runs back from a long 28 week spell and I see no reason she would be slowing down now. She belted a nothing field first up over the 1000m at Terang when proving far too strong before stepping out at Cranbourne a couple weeks ago and running home so well to look the race winner before just being claimed late by a horse who had the gun run when less than a head separated them as she dived on the line. Third up, hard fit and with Prebble aboard who brings a nice little claim I think she can win again here.

Stats and Insights

  • Aaron Bullock has five bookings at Grafton tomorrow and rides the favourite or second favourite in each of them so watch closely for him
  • Grafton has a 400m straight with the home turn being a long sweeping turn which gives runners time to position themselves for big runs in the straight.
  • Stony Creek is said to be such a tough course to win at due to the ups and downs throughout the course that horses that win here can win in town so follow any sharp winners at the course tomorrow.

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.
