Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to our some familiar Tuesday suspects with solid cards set for Taree racecourse and Rockhampton racecourse and we come off the back of a decent day in horse racing betting with our best bet getting unlucky but our roughie of the day being able to run home quite nicely into the placings. I think we can do better tomorrow however and have gone across the cards and picked out another best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as  where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline 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: Rockhampton - R3 - #5 - Hot Potato

The whole market appears to be on the ball with Garnett Taylor’s debutant tomorrow up north and fair enough after the way that he blitzed a trial at the Sunshine Coast inner track recently. He went there in Mid November and powered through the entire run to win over the 850m in good time but more so physically he looks a big solid horse and a nice type for these sprinting distances and the stable rarely gets these wrong. Good draw, Huxtable aboard, looks a good opening bet.

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: Taree - R4 - #2 - Uncut Gem

There’s a very short priced favourite in this race and whilst I don’t think that he’s a bad horse at all and steps out for a big stable I just think that the odds are completely skew relative to Glen Milligan’s Uncut Gem who has only had the one run for the stable since coming over from Brad Widdup but I think that after the way he made his debut for the stable when in the Heavy and not getting the easiest of runs but despite that still being so strong in defeat I think he will go very well here getting back atop the ground, fitter and with a claimer aboard.

Stats and Insights

  • Aaron Bullock boasts an impressive 26% win rate at Taree and rides the favourite or second favourite in three of tomorrow’s races at Taree Racecourse
  • There’s a noted front running track bias at Taree racecourse as winners are usually placed near the lead and rail when swinging for home
  • Rockhampton has a near 600m home straight which mimics a lot of the metro tracks in that backmarkers have plenty of chances to come on so don’t discount those outside barriers or sitting style runners tomorrow at the course.

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.
