Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Sale racecourse and Gatton racecourse this Tuesday for solid cards as we look towards our Wednesday Tips and I have gone through both of the cards and picked out some more solid betting spots so in this article we focus on another best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as 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: Gatton - R3 - #3 - Sir Carter

Market is all over him but I do think that Sir Carter is due a win for the Hulbert camp and it likely comes now back from a necessary let up as I think he was just getting a bit tired towards the end of last year despite putting in good shifts constantly. He last ran at Ipswich where he led them to home and looked the winner a long way but just couldn’t hold on when meeting one better in the straight. There’s been a few subsequent winners from that race, he gets a good draw and overall this field doesn’t look extremely strong. Go well.

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: Sale - R7 - #1 - Treloar

Treloar appears to have hit a bit of a purple patch for Luke Oliver and the way the stable’s runners have been going lately I don’t see any reason to jump off him now. He came on very sharply two back and really put the writing on the wall before stepping out at Cranbourne last time out where he set seventh along the rails and was held up for a long time before getting a split at the 200m and capitalising to flash home very well and win in the dying strides. He should have won by a lot more there and gets his chance to put on a show now.

Stats and Insights

  • Gatton racecourse has a home straight of 300 metres and is quite ovular in shape so it makes it reasonably hard for runners to come on in the straight.
  • Due to the shape of Gatton racecourse there is a strong bias towards inside runners
  • Often, at 1400m - 1600m across at Sale Racecourse winners predominantly emerge from barriers 5-8 which suggests those horses who either fire straight onto the speed or those that sit just behind the speed have the greatest chances.

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.
