Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar faces this Wednesday with cards set for Gosford racecourse and Sandown racecourse to continue the week with two solid cards in NSW and VIC as we are well underway into the peak of the Autumn season, coming off the back of one of the biggest Saturday race days of the season. I have thoroughly outlined my best betting spots. I have posted full length free horse racing tips on our site and in addition to those I have also posted an exotics tips page and multibets tips page. 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: Gosford - R1 - #3 - Nymphadora

Competitive maiden but I really do think that Nymphadora should be breaking through at start number six, although being a six start maiden I understand is partially why she is this price. She was third up at Kensington last time out when being bumped at the 300m but still chasing hard to only just miss out in a driving go. I expect her to be even harder to beat here with any luck.

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 - R5 - #2 - Look Sharpish

Looks Sharpish appears to be continuing to progress with each run for the Corstens camp and really got going last time out when second up from a 19 week spell at Kerang and coming from last and two wide in the run to drive through along the fence and power home the best in the field for a big and gutsy win. He now gets a good claim from Clarke to keep him well weighted, will only be fitter and should relish the rise in trip here.

Stats and Insights

  • Sandown 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.
  • Gosford 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.

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.
