Best Bets of the Day

Racing kicks on this Tuesday at Pakenham Synthetic Racecourse and Lismore Racecourse off the back of a frustrating day at Newcastle and Ballarat Synthetic Racecourses where we couldn’t get much on the board in what was a roughies day. I am hoping to hit back hard and have run through both of the cards and found some betting spots I like with my best bet and best outside chance of the day highlighted in the article below. Attached to these tips are which betting sites / betting apps you can get the best odds for these picks to secure even more value on the plays. I have also outlined which promotions are available across these betting apps to give you even more of an edge! Follow me below as I outline another exciting day of racing this Tuesday!

Best Tip: Lismore - R5 - #1 - She's Contrary

She’s Contrary looks like a good thing going for Brett Cavanough and seems like she’s going to be tough to beat in this field. The four-year-old resumed off a long 32 week spell two weeks back at Murwillumbah and ran two wide up on the speed, boxing along nicely but being no match for the winner late when placing second. It was a good run and she should have plenty of upside second up now off that spell, gets a very smart massive 4kg claim from Vitler and if he can give her a half decent steer he will be in the finish. Top chance and I am keen on her prospects.

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: Pakenham Synthetic - R6 - #6 - Tea Master

Tea Master has come up at a massive price in this race and I think that from a value point of view alone he is worth some money. He comes into this race third up and in his only preparation thus far when third up he raced a fast time over this distance and was very impressive, coming second only inside the last 50m to go down to a smart type. He raced last time out on this track which is always a positive to look for previous synthetic runners and whilst he didn’t have too much to offer late in the piece I like the way he boxed along on the speed and think he can improve sharply here with Cartwright aboard. Go close.

Stats and Insights

  • Pakenham is one of the smallest tracks in the country, with only 1400m circumference and as such suited to front-runners and those horses with the ability to race handy to the pace
  • Brett Cavanough is the top trainer at Lismore Racecourse with an impressive 23% strike rate here. He has four runners at the course tomorrow so look for them.
  • The inside 5 barriers account for nearly 70% of the winners at Lismore Racecourse, exhibiting a solid bias towards inside / rails in runners at the course

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Traditionally, promotions have been the primary means for bettors to gain an edge over bookmakers. These promotions prove beneficial by providing a safety net in case your chosen runner fails to win. 

Playup stands out amongst betting sites by frequently offering the advantage of refunding your bet with bonus bets for selected races on midweek and Provincial racing days, providing you with a second or third chance. Coupled with their favorable odds, Playup currently holds the top position in terms of promotions for Australian racing.

However, if you are seeking other betting apps that offer racing promotions  for this week it is worth looking at some other Australian bookies. On our onlyracing.com.au website we have a Punterspal review, Vicbet review and Palmerbet review which include the promotions that these betting sites frequently offer.

Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
