Best Bets of the Day

We have bumper seven and nine race cards set for the midweeks tomorrow at Sandown Hillside racecourse and Ipswich Racecourse and I have in depth free horse racing tips articles for both racecourses where we have bets in three of the races as well as a multi and exotics bet for each track but in this best bets article I have picked out an overall best of the day and best outside chance of the day across both racecourses. We got unlucky today with both our best bet and roughie of the day finishing close runners up in the placings but look to hit back hard tomorrow in what looks like an excellent set of meetings. As usual, I have gone across the Aussie betting sites / betting apps and highlighted where you can get the best odds for the best bet and best outside chance that I have outlined in this article. Below the tips you will find a small section on the best promotions going around across the betting apps for this Tuesday, whilst there may not be too many, any promotions are useful for giving us an edge on the bookies.

Best Tip: Sandown Hillside - R3 - #9 - Zaynudin

Zaynudin has a habit of getting well back in the run but I think that the combination between Zaynudin being third up, out to 2400m and onto this course will allow him to come on strongly enough from the back of the field to claim this race. The well bred Dabernig Irish import is in the midst of his first prep down under and has been running well. After debuting in Aus at Swan Hill he went to a Warracknabeal 2000m where he was awesome from off the rail three back in the straight to find the line with real purpose and beat all but the leader who had the gun run / was hard fit. I think third up now he presents with plenty more upside and out 400m in trip. He gets Shinn aboard… The setup looks perfect.

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: Ipswich - R5 - #5 - Tropics

This one is more of a value play than anything else so don’t go chucking the house on. However, my thinking is that unless the horse is a complete lemon it is very hard to justify these $25.00+ quotes on any horse Jimmy Orman gets booked on, especially in Queensland. The Jokic trained horse Tropics looked to really hit form before being sent for a spell last campaign when winning two on the bounce. He now comes back to racing off the three month break and looked to move very nicely in a recent trial win at Beaudesert. He should be strong late here and can surprise at odds.

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 allows for runners to come on from wider and doesn’t have the same shootout effect as the Lakeside course.
  • Jimmy Orman is one of the best jockeys in the Country and certainly one of the best up north, he gets a booking in eight of the nine races tomorrow at Ipswich, be sure to check out his rides.
  • Ipswich racecourse has a short straight and is a very circular track, this means that horses running close to the rail and front runners have significant advantages at the track.

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.
