Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Sandown Hillside racecourse and Warwick Farm racecourse this Wednesday for our familiar midweek race meetings and I am pretty keen on these, I’ve run through both of the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips on our site. In addition to those tips I have also posted a multi bets tips article and an exotics tips article on our site. In this article I have picked out my best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two of them. 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 Wednesday!

Best Tip: Sandown Hillside - R8 - #13 - Freight Train

The Price and Kent camp seem to have their hands on another good one in Freight Train and I am keen enough to follow him that I am betting on a get out. He debuted mid february at Pakenham where he set sixth and two wide the trip over the mile before shifting out three wide on the turn and chasing strongly to salute in the final 75m or so. That was an incredibly bold effort on debut and untrialled and he will retain a stack of benefit off of that run. I think he puts these away.

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: Warwick Farm - R4 - #3 - Owen County

Owen County is another sharp and in form horse who comes here for the Widdup stable off of a few sharp runs with the last two being efforts in which he has really clicked up in. He stepped out to this distance two back when proving too good at Gosford, storming away from the front in a thin race before going out at the Hawkesbury over the 2000m and winning again in a tough effort from out wide. Hard fit, in form, can win again.

Stats and Insights

  • Warwick Farm track bias skews towards mid barriers and outside runners on distances 1200m+
  • Sandown Hillside has a dip in the course at around the 450m mark by the rail. As such it suits horses that make their runs away from the inside, enabling them to avoid the dip at the 450m mark.
  • Sandown Hillside has a wide turn from the 800 to the 400 compared to Lakeside which allows for runners to come on from wider that wouldn’t be able to on the Lakeside course.

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.
