Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Mackay racecourse and Corowa racecourse for bumper seven race cards and it has been a great week already in horse racing betting off the back of what was quite a successful day for us during the group 1 races season last Saturday with my Saturday tips doing quite nicely and a bunch getting up at decent prices, including a listed win for Think It Over at around $6.50. I am keen to get the ball rolling again in advance of my Wednesday tips being released and have gone through the aforementioned racecourses cards and picked out an overall best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day as well where you can get the bets odds across our horse racing betting sites and then also outlined our best promotions across the aussie betting sites. Also be sure to check out our exotics tips article as we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. 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: Mackay - R3 - #3 - Class Of Royalty

Mackay racecourse looks to have some decent betting spots tomorrow but I do think that Class Of Royalty for the Fleming stable and is a track specialist. She gets a soft draw here and with Ryan Wiggins retaining the ride they map to have every chance from barrier two. She is also in career best form coming into this off the back of back to back wins where she has run well in transit in each before really clicking up and powering ahead for softish wins in the last 200m of the race. The stable clearly thinks she has more in the tank to make it three in a row at the track and trip and whilst she does have to beat an honest challenge in the favourite i think she is the top rater in this field.

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: Corowa - R5 - #2 - Fire And Gemstone

Fire And Gemstone has only had the one preparation at the races to go by but now comes into this race approaching peak fitness third up and is a third up winner in her past prep. That win did come over the 1200m and was quite a soft maiden kill but her splits have her real competitive in this field. Both of her runs this time have come tough with her forcing to track the fields out wide but I do think the runs read better when you watch them over being on paper. She has found plenty given both of the tough runs to come on in the straights and whilst she hasn’t been a winning chance she has been strong through the line in each and I now like her hard fit, out to the 1600m, I think she lines up well here and is over the odds.

Stats and Insights

  • Due to the shape of the Corowa racecourse, inside barriers have a significant advantage for distances that are 1400m + as runners that find the rail save key ground
  • Mackay racecourse has circular shape and is only 18m in width. The track is always turning and is tough away from the rails.
  • The Mackay home stretch is only 310m long so doesn’t afford too much chance for runners to come on after the turn.

Best Racing Promotions

Horse racing betting is always further advantaged for the punter via promotions which assist punters in getting an edge over betting sites. For racing these promotions are often extensive and frequent across the aussie betting apps and provide you more ‘outs’ to your bet that you wouldn’t normally be afforded.

Punterspal has stuck out to me in the last little while amongst the Aussie betting sites that offer horse racing promotions and is one that I would consider signing up to. As we are in full swing for the Group 1 races, Saturday’s become very useful to take advantage of the heightened promotions during the period.

On our website we have a Punterspal review that goes in depth into the bookmaker and their advantages and disadvantages as well as a Vicbet  and Palmerbet review which are bookmakers I also favour in terms of their promotions.

Promotions do tend to change frequently amongst the Aussie betting sites so be sure to check onlyracing.com.au to stay updated on the latest promotions.
