Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar Tuesday racing suspects with cards set for Terang racecourse and Scone racecourse and I am quite keen on a couple betting spots which I think look very good here. I have gone through both of the cards and picked out another best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline 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 assist your horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Tuesday!

Best Tip: Terang - R4 - #14 - Rebellious Hope

My only query with Rebellious Hope is the space between runs but the stable did similar between his career debut and his second up run last time out and he did show big improvements between runs as well as the Griffiths / De Kock camp rarely placing their runners without consideration. This guy was over a month between runs when stepping out mid November at Mornington and fighting hard to the line to place third in a brave effort given he didn’t get the best of runs. He’s still learning, should be hard fit and finds a beatable field here third up.

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: Scone - R5 - #5 - Hot Bandit

Hot Bandit has only had a couple career starts for the Pepper camp but has run very well in both of them and doesn’t look to be slowing down now nor does this look out of his depth. He kicked his career off with a very sharp runner up placing at Muswellbrook two runs back before last stepping out at Scone and beating a smart horse in Sky Artist and did so in very fine fashion when really strong to the line. He resumes now from a 17 week break which I guess is why we get this price on him but I think he will be sharp regardless.

Stats and Insights

  • Terang is a very nice racecourse, with a 400m home straight as well as it being a very flat and wide course. It favours runners that can come on strongly in the straight due to the long straight but bareer’s are of little importance.
  • Aaron Bullock is the top Jockey at Scone Racecourse with a 22% strike rate. He gets a booking in most of tomorrow’s races at the course so watch out for his rides.
  • Brett Cavanough is the top trainer at Scone racecourse by a solid margin and has about 10 runners at the course tomorrow so watch for all of those.

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.
