Best Bets of the Day

We have some belter racing this Wednesday as our midweek cards come back to NSW and VIC with great racing at Ballarat racecourse and Kensington racecourse as we are underway with the Autumn Group 1 races season and I am very much looking forward to the racing tomorrow and have thoroughly run through the cards and picked out my best betting spots with full length free horse racing tips posted on our site and in addition to those tips I have also posted an exotics tips page and a multi bets tips page but in this article we focus on our best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day. I’ve also 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: Sportsbet-Ballarat - R1 - #6 - Igotcha

Igotcha looks set to get another win aboard for Ciaron Maher here after only putting in good efforts in his three career starts with a win and close placing in the three runs. He came off of a 24 week spell last time out when running well two weeks back at Sandown Hillside. The way he came on strong late suggests to me that he will be even stronger here out to the 1600m and I think he is a solid bet. 

BookmakerOdds
$2.45
VicBet$2.45
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: Kensington - R3 - #1 - Deep Romance

Deep Romance has had two runs back for Nathan Doyle but I think based off of the way the stable is going combined with him coming here third up I think he will go well here. He won first up at Beaumont off of a spell of 28 weeks when running well at Beaumont before taking a three week break and coming back to racing last time out when never able to get into the race but he should be able to atone third up here and hard fit.

VicBet$9.00

Stats and Insights

  • Randwick is a very wide track with a good run-in that makes it one of the fairest tracks around. It’s hard to say backmarkers are advantaged, but they are the closest thing to advantaged at Randwick Racecourse
  • At Ballarat, runners outside of around the ten suffer at least a length’s advantage due to the uniquely challenging nature of 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.
