Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar tracks this Tuesday with solid cards at Ballarat Synthetic Racecourse and Gunnedah Racecourse and we look to hit back hard off the back of our Monday best bets tips which we got very unlucky with our solid odds best of the day coming second by a head and our roughie of the day not being headed but looked like he had some problems and still might be a follow in the future. We have pretty solid Wednesday racing ahead of us and I am keen to try to build a bit of a bankroll to take us into the midweek. As usual I have run through both the cards mentioned above and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day. I have also gone across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps and highlighted where you can get the best odds for these picks. Below the tips you will find a small section on the best promotions going around across the betting apps. Follow me in this article below for another great Tuesday of racing!

Best Tip: Ballarat Synthetic - R3 - #12 - Written Bligh

I reckon that the Grahame Begg trained Written Bligh is going to be very tough to beat in this not overly strong field. The lightly raced horse made his return to racing off of a 19 week spell for just his second start at the races three weeks ago at this track and distance where he crossed early from a wide gate and found the rail to lead and was challenged on the straight but kept finding the line nicely to only find two better and finish third. You would have to think coming from the astute stable she will have plenty more to offer here second up and I only see her going well here from the low draw where she should find the front.

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: Gunnedah - R5 - #4 - Jackyy Dee

I think the Jackyy Dee can go on with what has been an awesome second prep for Damien Lane and I think that even under 60kg she should be running well here. She draws wide but it is suited to her run style and Gunnedah accommodates for wide runners, I can see her lobbing onto a spot behind the speed and getting a nice trail in before starting a powerful run just off the turn. She comes into this off the back of a second up win at Narromine before going to Taree where she looked to make it back to back wins but was held up at a crucial stage and still powered home into second. Last time out she raced at Goulburn in a big field where she couldn’t get clear air until the last 150m of the straight but once she did she jetted away for another big win. She gets a test here, but is incredibly dynamic in running and will make her own luck in not an overly big field.

Stats and Insights

  • Ballarat Synthetic is a spacious track and has a home straight that goes up and even undulates a bit and as such you need runners with good fight / ones that can run home hard late.
  • At Ballarat synthetic, runners outside of around the ten suffer at least a length’s advantage due to the uniquely challenging nature of the straight
  • The Gunnedah racecourse is a square type shape with a sharp home turn. Inside barriers and front runners are advantaged.

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.
