Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Newcastle racecourse and Doomben racecourse this Wednesday for two solid cards in NSW and QLD as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season and we see some very progressive runners stepping out for these meetings with a $150k race being the feature of the day at Newcastle, a 1400m contest with some very good horses. I have thoroughly run through the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips and in addition to those there is also this best bets tips article, a multibets tips article and an exotics tips article on our site. In this I have picked out a best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two cards. There are also the best racing promotions across our Aussie horse racing betting sites outlined in this article. 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: Doomben - R2 - #1 - Transatlantic

Transatlantic looks like quite a sharp horse for Tony Gollan and I have backed him a few times in his short career so far but he is proving to be very progressive thus far and I think he’s as good as a sure fire bet to kick things off at Doomben tomorrow. He’s coming off a very sharp Eagle Farm win where he led them out over the 1500m and drew away dominantly in the straight and now should be even stronger here, go well.

*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: Newcastle - R7 - #2 - Cloudland

Cloudland gets a very good set up here and cannot be ignored for Kris Lees coming into this third up. He’s had two runs back from a spell and has continued to improve between each and now looks ready to win. Gibbons was on him first up where he ran very well into the placings and now jumps back aboard for the third up ride, he’s got a win and two placings in three third up runs and I expect him to be strong here.

Stats and Insights

  • Over the shorter trips at Doomben (up until about the 1350m) outside barriers are significantly disadvantaged. Look for horses that draw inside or have lots of early speed and stay away from those that are backmarkers.
  • Kris Lees has an impressive 26% strike rate at Newcastle and has a few runners placed in the racing at the track so watch closely.
  • Newcastle is a spacious and flat track with a 400m straight that gives almost all barriers an equal chance to run on.

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.
