Best Bets of the Day

Follow along with me for the best free horse racing tips on race day! Wednesday's racing action takes us to Sandown and I have found a best bet for you at betting sites in Australia. There's also a juicy roughie to get on board. I'm heading to Sandown for my best bet of the day in Race 8. Meanwhile, my roughie of the day is Starianne at Sandown in Race 6. On Wednesday, the track at Sandown Lakeside is a soft 5 so should be a good day for racing. Let's get into it!

Best Tip: Name Dropper #10 Sandown R8

With Ethan Brown on board last start, won at Sandown-Hillside (1400m). So hopefully that form continues into Wednesday's race. On Wednesday, Ethan Brown is in the saddle and knows how to win. Get on board. Before that, Name Dropper finished first at Eagle Farm in a Mdn on August 16, 2023 over 1400m. First-up form looks good. In winning form, don't look past it.

Best Roughie: Starianne #8 Sandown R6

Starianne is first-up on Wednesday. Has a positive first-up record in its career, having never finished outside the top 3 in 4 starts. In the recent outing for Starianne at Flemington, he came in third, not far behind the leaders. Now that he's fitter, he's got a solid chance of finishing in the top three again, I think. Ben Allen knows how to handle him too, so don't count him out just yet. Has placed at the distance before so an each-way bet is a good idea.

Stats and Insights

  • There's 8 races at Sandown on Wednesday afternoon and the track is a soft 5 with a true track rail.
  • The first 3-4 races in most meetings are called "Maidens" and these races are usually risky and unpredictable. This is because the runners are usually making their debut or have only had a few starts. So it's advisable to stay from these races unless you have a good bankroll.
  • Blake Shinn is a jockey to watch with 3 favourites in Race 1, 4 and 5.

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.
