Best Bets of the Day

After a big weekend in horse racing betting with Saturday being a particularly good day for us on Saturday with the group 1 races season in full swing and now we come off the back of quite a luckless day this Monday with our roughie of the day getting no luck in running and fading down the track and our best of the day being knocked off by a $31 chance in the dying moments of the race where he looked the winner a long way and placed second. I am keen to get the ball rolling again in advance of Wednesday’s racing and have gone across the Moruya racecourse card and Musswellbrook racecourse card and picked out a best bet and a best outside chance of the day as well as where you can pick up the bets odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then 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 aid your betting at both the tracks. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Tuesday!

Best Tip: Muswellbrook - R4 - #2 - Monopoly Girl

Monopoly Girl is overdue to shed the maiden tag and think she is going to be tough to beat here for the Kavanagh stable. She’s had two runs since resuming from a long twenty one week spell and both of them have been full of merit; the first came at Newcastle over the 1200m where she was caught wide early and did plenty of work throughout the run when coming into the turn two wide and kept battling away in the straight but just couldn’t get there over the winner when those two cleared the field. He produced a similar effort last time out at Taree when caught wide and doing heaps of work to nearly win and just fall into second. He comes into this hard fit third up now and draws a good gate, meets a beatable field. Go very close here.

*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: Moruya - R5 - #12 - Champ Profond

Champ Profond returns here for the Jarvis stable after really finding his feet when starting his first campaign for the stable last time out and now looks well placed to resume a winner again. He debuted for the stable when a super close runner up at the Sapphire Coast after doing heaps of hard work out wide before going out to this track over the 1300m and clocking an impressive win both in running and on the splits on paper before being weakened out of it in his last run of the prep. No public jump out work is a bit concerning but the way he debuted for the stable last time suggests he can return in a big way and he draws well, solid jockey booking, I think there is a bit of intent.

Stats and Insights

  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m at Moruya racecourse winners predominantly emerge from barriers 5-8 which suggests those horses who either fire straight onto the speed or those that sit just behind the speed have the greatest chances.
  • Musswellbrook is a wide turning course that gives backmarkers and wide runners an honest chance to come on but also advantages rails in runners that can cut corners.
  • The Moruya racecourse is a very forgiving track with a soft sand base that gives most runners an equal chance in running. The track goes favour stronger / bigger types as their strides are accentuated by the track.

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.
