Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Kembla Grange racecourse and Eagle Farm racecourse for two very strong midweek cards as we start to get the ball rolling in the new year and I have a few betting spots I am particularly keen on and have run through both of the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips and in addition to those we also have an exotics tips article posted on our site. In here is a best bet and best outside chance of the day and have outlined where you can get the best odds across our horse racing betting sites 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: Kembla Grange - R3 - #2 - Restonica (BEST BET)

Always sharp is James Cummings with how he places his runners and his lightly raced ones specifically. I have seen this set up before from the stable and think Restonica is one of the best things going here. He has had two runs this time in and both have been very close placings at this course first up and then Gosford. Hard fit third up, soft field, surely wins.

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: Eagle Farm - R3 - #5 - Tread Softly

Tread Softly has not put a foot wrong recently and deserves a crack stepping up to this level of competition now. He’s had two runs for Sally Taylor since coming across to the camp and she has him going brilliantly. He was four weeks between runs when making his stable debut and winning well before coming back to racing five weeks between runs and winning again very sharply. Those contests weren’t the same level as this but he’s been so impressive in running that I can’t knock him here.

Stats and Insights

  • Eagle Farm has little barrier bias as the track has quite even wide turns and as such it is good to look for promising backmarkers for the long straight
  • Kembla Grange is a very spacious course that is different to a lot of other provincial racecourses and mimics something more like Randwick which lends plenty of opportunity for runners to come on strongly late in the piece.
  • Watch out for Chris Waller’s runners at Eagle Farm and Kembla Grange tomorrow, he appears to be sending an assault of midweek runners across the country.

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.
