Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar faces this tuesday with cards set for Kembla Grange racecourse and Grafton racecourse to continue a the start to the week and we have two solid cards, both in NSW as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season, coming off the back of one of the biggest Saturday race days of the season. I have thoroughly outlined my best betting spots. In this I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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: Kembla Grange - R4 - #6 - American Starlet

I have to have American Starlet on top here for John Thompson coming here for just his second career start for the camp but looking awfully well placed to go over here. She debuted at Newcastle at the end of last month when being bumped jumping and forced out wide in the straight but just sticking onto her task and chasing hard through the line to finish strongly in the runner up position. Gets a good set up here with Latham aboard and light weight and with natural improvement I think she will prove tough 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: Grafton - R3 - #4 - Burnt Butter 

Burnt Butter looks like a very good bet here for Brett Cavanough coming here third up and looking set to peak off the back of a run about a month ago in the same conditions we get tomorrow at Coffs Harbour where he raced on the speed throughout and gave a good kick in the straight to only find the exacta better. He looked to handle the conditions very well and third up now, mapping to find the lead quite softly, I think he will prove much harder to run down now third up.

Stats and Insights

  • 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.
  • Aaron Bullock has multiple bookings at Grafton tomorrow and rides the first three lines of betting in each of them so watch closely for him.
  • Kembla Grange is a very spacious course that is different to a lot of other provincial racecourses and mimics something more like Randwick which lends plenty of opportunity for runners to come on strongly late in the piece.

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.
