Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Bendigo racecourse and Scone racecourse off the back of what was a solid weekend in horse racing betting with our free horse racing tips on Saturday going quite well across the premiere racing states in the country and I am keen to get the week started in a big way and have run through the aforementioned racecourses and picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day. 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: Bendigo - R5 - #4 - King Waldo

King Waldo shapes up well here for Nick Ryan off the back of his debut at Wangaratta a month ago and I am keen to have something on him here with some gear changes that he gets now. He proved a bit difficult to ride on debut but definitely displayed some talent when taking over inside the 250m and fighting hard to the line to only go down late into fourth. He now draws the rails, gets the blinkers on and should prove very hard to hold out. 

BookmakerOdds
$3.10
VicBet$3.00
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 - R4 - #4 - Draco's Fire

Draco’s Fire should be improving sharply here for Annabel Neasham off the back of his debut at Bathurst. He sat on the speed and two wide throughout the run there and battled on well to hold second placing when just laying out in the straight a bit. I think that he displayed enough talent on debut to be given a chance with natural improvement here second up and the stable is very astute with how they place their runners.

Stats and Insights

  • 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, I have outlined a few of them in my racing tips articles on the site.
  • The Bendigo Racecourse is a very spacious circuit with long straights (24m width) and well-cambered turns (6% Camber) which makes it a great course for up and in runners and also lends opportunity to backmarkers to come on strong.
  • The Bendigo Racecourse has chutes for the 1100m and 1600m that sees runners go around one full 180 degree turn and generally sees rails in runners go over the best at these distances.

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.
