Best Bets of the Day has you covered for Tuesday horse racing action at Moe and Hawkesbury. We have your best bet of the day as well as a cheeky roughie. At Hawkesbury, it's rated a heavy 9 for Tuesday's racing action so it's a good idea to focus on runners that love wet conditions. Meanwhile, Moe is a Soft 7 so we recommend punting on horses that love soft conditions. Both meetings have 8 races on the agenda so let's get into it!

Best Tip: Marble Nine #2 Moe R6

Back in action after a spell, Marble Nine has already made quite a mark and should be tough to beat on Tuesday. With two victorious spring jumpouts under its belt, it then led keenly and won on its debut. Given its track record, I consider it the horse to beat. Impressively, it boasts a flawless first up record, indicating its readiness to shine from the start. Let's not forget its recent win at Mornington on May 5th, where it outpaced Our Cracklin Rosie carrying 58kg. I think this race looks suited for Ben Allen to settle in the lead from the start and I don't think it'll get run down.

Best Roughie: Sawrey #2 Hawkesbury R5

Let's talk about Sawrey. Now, this horse has quite the depth to his form, which is definitely something to take note of. If the 1100m distance isn't too much of a stretch for him, then he's going to be a tough one to beat, no doubt about it. Just look at his track record – his last two fresh runs over 1200m ended with strong second-place finishes. Plus, he's got a BM64 level second to The King under his belt and has even shown his mettle in a Midway race in town. And let's not forget his recent trial, where he held his own against some stiff competition. All signs point to Sawrey being a real contender in this race.

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.
