Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Kyneton racecourse and Grafton racecourse off the back of some of the biggest racing of the year with our massive listed racing cards of The Big Dance at Randwick and of course, the premier staying contest of the season, the Melbourne Cup at Flemington. We got the money in the big dance at a massive price today with our roughie of the day, Attractable, getting up at about $20 across the aussie betting sites. We are having a great week and I am keen to keep it going, I have run through both of the cards and picked out a best bet and a roughie of the day across each but there will be plenty of good betting spots tomorrow so make sure to utilise the track insights at the bottom of this article. I have also outlined where the best promotions are 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 a massive day of racing this Wednesday!

Best Tip: Kyneton - R7 - #3 - Red Sun Sensation

Red Sun Sensation drops well back in grade here for Peter Moody after last contesting the JRA Cup two weeks back at The Valley where he found the lead and gave a strong kick to only go down late to one other runner in Ain’tnodeeldun. That is A1 form for this race and if he still has steam in the tank he should be winning this.

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: Grafton - R3 - #1 - Kibosh

Kibosh takes on a big weight here but is miles back in depth and steps out for just his second run since coming to Tony Newing from John Thompson. His first run came off a short few weeks break when running well on the speed, sitting on the leaders’ heels and then being blocked at a crucial stage and fading down the track after losing his momentum there. He will be a lot better for that run now and draws to receive every chance this time. More than up to this at his best.

Stats and Insights

  • Aaron Bullock has five bookings at Grafton tomorrow and rides the favourite or second favourite in each of them so watch closely for him
  • Grafton has a 400m straight with the home turn being a long sweeping turn which gives runners time to position themselves for big runs in the straight.
  • Kyneton is a sharp turning track that has a clear bias to front runners, even out to staying distance due to how much ground they save.

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.
