Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar tracks this Tuesday with seven race cards set for Gunnedah racecourse and Ballarat Synthetic racecourse and we had a pretty good day to kick the week off with our best bet of the day in the best bets tips getting up and our roughie of the day running second so I hope you grabbed the prices mentioned in the article as I saw both picks were a lot shorter by the time the jump came around in each. I am keen to keep the momentum going this Tuesday so hopefully we can pick up another two winners in the article below! I have outlined a best of the day and best outside chance of the day and highlighted their prospects in this article as well as  where you can pick up the best odds across the Aussie horse racing betting sites  / betting apps. Below the tips I have recently re-written a section on the best promotions going around across our Aussie betting apps / betting sites so be sure to check that out as there are a couple promotions going around for this Tuesday. Follow me below for another exciting Tuesday of provincial racing!

Best Tip: Gunnedah - R4 - #4 - Fusaichi Family

Fusaichi Family looks very well placed in this field to go over here for the Cavanough stable who are absolutely flying and he rates as one of the highest differentials to the rest of the field out of any field tomorrow at Gunnedah and I think with the claim from Nock he gets in at just 57kg and has run very well at this distance range before and finished second in his only run at the course. He’s been building up towards stepping out in distance with a few runs in mixed conditions at the mile and last time out he looks to have really clicked up where he got a nice trail behind the speed and looked to start a big run in the last 100m where he was strong through the line and beat all but the winner there. He looked to only be getting warm late and if he handles the big step up in trip I have no doubt he can take this out.

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: Ballarat Synthetic - R2 - #5 - Dreamnt Enough

Dreamnt Enough rates highly here and can hit back hard off the back of a run at the 1400m at this course last time out where he found the front, sat outside the leader and two wide through the trip but had nothing left for them late and faded down the track. Before then, he had been putting in three very sharp efforts at this track over this trip. Two back he crossed early from a wide gate and was able to find the rail and lead them out, still with enough to kick in the straight and win smartly there and prior to then he had been putting the writing on the wall with two close placings over the track / trip. I think he looks well suited coming back to this distance again now and he’s been afforded a three week break between runs which should see him a bit fresher.

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 are an imperative aspect of horse racing betting and have traditionally been the primary mode of punters getting an edge over the  Aussie horse racing betting sites as you are essentially getting an extra shot at your bet that you wouldn’t traditionally be offered through promotions.

Punterspal, in the last few Saturday racing meetings, has stuck out to me amongst the Aussie betting sites that provide racing promotions and is one Australian betting apps I would look into, particularly when it comes to Saturday racing as we approach the Group 1 races season again this Spring.

On our site we have a Punterspal Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as other reviews such as Vicbet reviews, Palmerbet reviews etc 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.
