Best Bets of the Day

Check out the free horse racing tips and best bets for Tuesday's racing at Ballarat Synthetic and Hawkesbury. I'm heading to Ballarat Synthetic for my best bet of the day in Race 5. Meanwhile, my roughie of the day is Star Legacy at Hawkesbury in Race 6. The track conditions at Ballarat Synthetic should be nice for racing on Tuesday with a good 3 rating at the moment. At Hawkesbury on Tuesday, the track is rated a heavy 9 so keep that on your mind when placing bets. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Dreamwoman #5 Ballarat Synthetic R5

I like the look of Dreamwoman in Race 5 at Ballarat Synthetic on Tuesday. Previously won at Ballarat Synthetic over 1100m, carrying 60.5kg. That was a really good win, so I think Dreamwoman should be tough to beat on Tuesday too. Before that, Dreamwoman finished first at Wagga in a BM58 on April 21, 2024 over 1300m. Has enjoyed plenty of success at this track (Ballarat Synthetic) with a 100% record of finishing in the top-three. Loves the distance and I hope that continues. Previously has had plenty of success when it's running third-up, so just another reason to get on board.

Best Roughie: Star Legacy #8 Hawkesbury R6

Just finished behind the places in it's last start, finishing 4th at 9 on May 28. So I think it can improve after that run and should be fitter here. Previously, 3rd of 9 at Warwick Farm Barrier Trial-Open on April 26, 2024 over 1200m. Has enjoyed the Hawkesbury track with a 100% record of finishing in the top-three in its career. Also likes running third-up, so good odds to have a crack each-way.

Stats and Insights

  • Hawkesbury Racecourse is known to have a very real home track advantage and pro punters have affirmed that there are certain runners that irrespective of their form at other tracks, if they perform historically at Hawkesbury then that form is likely genuine.
  • The first 3-4 races in most meetings are called "Maidens" and these races are usually risky and unpredictable. This is because the runners are usually making their debut or have only had a few starts. So it's advisable to stay from these races unless you have a good bankroll.
  • At Ballarat Synthetic, inside barriers can be an advantage for several distances between 1400 to 2200m.

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.
