Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar early week tracks with bumper cards set for Wyong racecourse and Benalla racecourse this Tuesday and it should be a solid start to the week as some of the runners on this card look awfully progressive. I have run through the day’s racing quite extensively and picked out my best betting spots on the card. So, in this article we focus on ur best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day. There’s also a daily multi bets tips page posted on our site so be sure to check that out too. I’ve also outlined 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: Wyong - R7 - #2 - Rush Hour

Rush Hour is a smart horse for Nathan Doyle and the stable is absolutely flying this season so I don’t think there’s any reason to knock this guy. He came off of a very long spell of 49 weeks at Rosehill when looking strong in parts of the run but did do things a bit greenly and became unbalanced in the straight at the 200m as he continued to battle away just behind the placegetters. Now, with fitness on his side and natural improvement from the run he should be a lot more competitive here, dropping back in grade / depth as well and with a claimer aboard.

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: Benalla - R8 - #16 - Blame The Whiskey

Blame The Whisky hasn’t won second up in the past but I think after the way he returned to racing and based on the fact that he ran a very close second placing last time out when second up that he can make an impression here. He came back from a 19 week spell last time out at Pakenham where he shifted out wide in the straight and chased home very well to end up just behind the placegetters there. I think with Spain aboard, with intent being placed here and natural improvement second up he should go very well here.

Stats and Insights

  • All inside runners at Benalla racecourse have a distinct advantage due to the tight turning nature of the track
  • The Wyong racecourse is near circular, offering runners with more dynamic run styles and those that handle bendy tracks a big advantage, also gives those close to the rail an advantage in sprints
  • Maher and Eustace send a bunch of sharp looking horses to Wyong racecourse tomorrow so watch out for them.

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.
