Best Bets of the Day

A huge midweek set of meetings with listed racing at Caulfield racecourse for Coongy Cup Day which sees a $1.2 million card head to the track and in addition to that we also have a great set of racing at Kensington racecourse. I have thoroughly gone through both of the race cards and posted full length free horse racing tips on our website where I have delved into the Coongy cup and picked out my four best runners amongst my other tips. We also have an exotics tips article posted on the site so be sure to check that out. In this article we focus on an overall best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as where you can get the best odds across our horse racing betting sites 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: Kensington - R1 - #3 - City Of Lights

It does look like City Of Lights is going to be tough to beat here for Joe Pride. She’s had just the one run since changing stables and coming over to Joe and wasn’t totally suited by the track pattern and where she landed in the run that day but she was still powerful through the line when passing a few horses and landing in fifth. She should improve sharply here and I imagine will look strong.

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: Caulfield - R2 - #4 - Steinem

A smart horse for Maher and Eustace in Steinem makes his way to this race and the form lines around her read very well. She resumed at The Valley in The Stocks where she was never a threat behind Amelia’s Jewel as she just did too much early work but she did find some more late when being quite strong through the line. She gets out to a more favourable distance now, is a second up winner and has been set up with intent here.

Stats and Insights

  • Caulfield Racecourse is a tighter track than Flemington and suits on pacers more until distances past 1600m.
  • Maher and Eustace are the top trainers at Caulfield Racecourse so far this season and historically (last two seasons), they have a bunch of favourites and second favourites running tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my Caulfield tips.
  • Randwick-Kensington 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-Kensington Racecourse

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Horse racing betting is always further advantaged for the punter via promotions which assist punters in getting an edge over betting sites. For racing these promotions are often extensive and frequent across the aussie betting apps and provide you more ‘outs’ to your bet that you wouldn’t normally be afforded.

Punterspal has stuck out to me in the last little while amongst the Aussie betting sites that offer horse racing promotions and is one that I would consider signing up to. As we are in full swing for the Group 1 races, Saturday’s become very useful to take advantage of the heightened promotions during the period.

On our website we have a Punterspal review that goes in depth into the bookmaker and their advantages and disadvantages as well as a Vicbet  and Palmerbet review which are bookmakers I also favour in terms of their promotions.

Promotions do tend to change frequently amongst the Aussie betting sites so be sure to check onlyracing.com.au to stay updated on the latest promotions.
