Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Randwick racecourse and Flemington racecourse for some of the biggest racing of the year and we have massive listed racing cards set for The Big Dance at Randwick and of course, the premier staying contest of the season, the Melbourne Cup at Flemington tomorrow. I have run through both of the cards and picked out a best bet and a roughie of the day across each but there will be plenty of good betting spots tomorrow so make sure to utilise the track insights at the bottom of this article. 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 massive day of racing this Tuesday!

Best Tip: Flemington - R7 - #1 - Gold Trip

Wow, feature race of the day, I can’t believe the Melbourne Cup has come back around already and the reigning champion Gold Trip has seen a better lead up campaign this time around than last year and I think that now that his feet problems are under control he is going to be tough to beat here. He ran a smart third place in the Caulfield Cup and then nearly claimed the Cox Plate when not getting the easiest of runs. He now gets Jmac aboard whilst losing Zahra but we all know Jmac will be more than capable here.

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: Randwick - R5 - #3 - Attractable

I am a huge fan of Attractable and think he has been set up for a race like this after coming out of the Alan Brown stakes at Rosehill where he ran very well given how much work he had to do from up on the speed and still finding the line with real purpose. If he was coming from a bigger stable he would be outright favourite here undoubtedly. Randwick lately has also been playing up and in and given Attractable’s run style that is just about perfect for him. Very keen.

Stats and Insights

  • Maher and Eustace are the top trainers at Flemington Racecourse so far this season and historically (last two seasons), they have a bunch of favourites and second favourites running tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my extensive Flemington tips.
  • Randwick is a very wide track with a good run-in that makes it one of the fairest tracks around. It’s hard to say backmarkers are advantaged, but they are the closest thing to advantaged at Randwick Racecourse
  • In recent times it has been noted that Randwick has been playing up and in, in terms of track pattern, so watch for runners that land near the rail even those that might be deeper in the run as runs can present for them.

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.
