Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some familiar suspects this Wednesday with riper cards set for Kensington racecourse and a listed card set for Bendigo racecourse as Bendigo Cup day has arrived. I am keen to keep the momentum rolling after a good start to the week in horse racing betting with our best bets tips doing well as our best bet got up at around $2.90 across all the aussie horse racing betting sites. I have posted full length free horse racing tips on our site where I have thoroughly outlined my best betting spots for the day and have run through the feature listed race of the day, the Bendigo Cup. In this article I have 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 Wednesday!

Best Tip: Kensington - R3 - #6 - Petersham

Petersham looks pretty tough to beat for the Waterhouse / Bott stable and I think he looks well placed to get the win second up here at short odds. He came back from a long spell of 31 weeks last time out at this track where he raced well before being held up in the straight and never really having the chance to fully come on. He draws well now, natural improvement second up, all signs point to a good showing.

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: Bendigo - R7 - #11 - Pesto

Pesto has a good record out to this distance range in the past and comes off the back of an assertive win that definitely suggests he is going well enough to take this out now. He last stepped out at Caulfield a couple weeks back where was very powerful to the line, winning sharply then. This race isn’t overly tough, he’s flying and comes into this very well weighted. Worth a lot of thought.

Stats and Insights

  • 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.
  • Randwick is a very wide track with a good run-in that makes it one of the fairest tracks around. It’s hard to say backmarkers are advantaged, but they are the closest thing to advantaged at Randwick Racecourse

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.
