Racing returns to Warwick Farm racecourse and Sandown Lakeside racecourse this Wednesday for a cracking set of midweek cards and I have extensively run through the day’s racing and posted full length free horse racing tips on our site so be sure to check those out. In addition to those tips there is also an exotics bets tips page on our site and our recently launched multi bets tips so be sure to check those both out as well. As for this article  we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as 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: Warwick Farm - R1 - #6 - Tartaglia

Tartaglia has had only had the one start for James Cummings but rates highly off the back of it and I think the maiden win can easily come in the opening race of the day here. He debuted at the end of last month at Rosehill over the 1100m when coming from deep along the rail to weave a path along the fence and jet home in an impressive debut that saw him place third. I think he shapes up very well now second up off the back of that effort and only runs well here, the one to beat for me.

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: Sandown Lakeside - R6 - #2 - Mi Rock Aly

I think dropping back in grade combined with stepping out for this assignment third up is a good recipe for Mi Rock Aly who comes off of a run on the Hillside part of this course two weeks ago over the 1800m where he took over at the 300m and kept fighting hard to the line when probably starting the run a bit too early and just being over run late by the winner and placegetters. Out to this trip now he should be prominent.

Stats and Insights

  • Sandown Lakeside has a similar dip to the Hillside 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 Lakeside has a smaller turn from the 800 to the 400 compared to Hillside which allows for runners to come on from wider more, this creates more of a shoot out effect.
  • Warwick Farm track bias skews towards mid barriers and outside runners on distances 1200m+

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.
