Best Bets of the Day

Midweek racing returns to our prime tracks with bumper cards set for Sandown Hillside racecourse and Warwick Farm racecourse and I am very excited for some of the more progressive runners in the country to step out in what looks like it’s going to be a great day of racing and I have thoroughly run through both of the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips on our website and in addition to those there is also an exotics tips page on the site. As for this article we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as  where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps 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: Sandown Hillside - R3 - #8 - Greyt Mumma

You would have to think that Greyt Mumma just wins this. To be fair that is something that I said when she resumed from a 24 week spell last time out at The Valley but she did get unlucky for a run there for a long time and when she got clear air it was too late to win but it was an impressive return to racing albeit only being able to place third as favourite. Market’s all over her and with even luck she wins now.

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 - R3 - #8 - Zip On By

Might be reading the race wrong but I think that Zip On By is a very sneaky chance in a field where the first few lines of betting are all somewhat milk drinkers given their low win to run ratios and I think that this guy will improve second up now after resuming at Randwick behind a very sharp horse in Chilli Filly and not getting a chance to get into the race until clear very late where he ran home very strongly inside those last 150 metres. Rates well with natural improvement here.

Stats and Insights

  • 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.
  • 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.
