Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Goulburn racecourse and Warrnambool racecourse this Tuesday for two very solid early week cards as we look towards the midweek racing at some of our premiere courses and I have gone through both of the cards and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day as usual. In this article I’ve also 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: Warrnambool - R8 - #3 - The Big Kahuna

I was searching for some time for a solid bet at Warrnambool tomorrow and whilst I think there are some wider spots that look good it took me awhile to find a nice animal until I saw The Big Kahuna was stepping out for the Preusker stable. He’s quite a sharp horse and he rates highly off the back of his last start coming into this. Last time out he resumed from a long 74 week spell at Bendigo where he made his debut for the stable and lead them along the rails before kicking away in the final 100m when very strong through the line. 1600m first up is no easy task and he made it look like a barrier trial so stepping out to 1700m with more upside and fitness doesn’t pose any issues for me.

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: Goulburn - R4 - #6 - Cinematic Star

Cinematic Star shapes up well here for Ciaron Maher in a competitive race. He had just his second career start about a month ago in mid February at Goulburn over the 1000m where he seems to have returned really well. He settled two wide in the run there but came to the middle of the track in the straight and battled on very well then to just miss out on the win when coming second by a head. He should have a stack of improvement now second up as that was his first run for some time and with the light weight and Ryan aboard he shapes up very well here.

Stats and Insights

  • Goulburn Racecourse features a 400-metre home straight and is generally regarded as a fair track and offers good runs all turns.
  • Lindsey Smith is the top trainer at Warrnambool by some margin so look out for her 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.
