Best Bets of the Day

Huge midweek racing comes to Sandown Hillside racecourse and Warwick Farm racecourse this Wednesday as the Group 1 races season is in full tilt and we have free horse racing tips for both of the courses on our website in addition to this best bets article and an exotics tips article for the day where we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. I am very keen on this race day as there looks to be some very progressive horses getting going for big preps and there are a bunch of nice betting spots on the card. In this article I have picked out an overall best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day as well where you can get the bets odds across our betting apps and then also outlined our best promotions across the aussie betting sites. Also be sure to check out our exotics tips article as we look to pick up some more lucrative bets. 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: Sandown Hillside - R5 - #7 - Truffle Finder

Truffle Finder rates as the top seed for this race and he rates in front by a decent margin. He’s had just the two career starts for Chris Mcdonald but has been super impressive in those two starts. He debuted on the Pakenham Synthetic where he ran a super close second placing before stepping out on the turf at Pakenham again where he ran as a short priced favourite and saluted dominantly there. He has looked very sharp in the lead up trial for his return and looks well placed here to win first up.

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: Warwick Farm - R6 - #1 - Lucky Variety

Lucky Variety is a very honest horse for Kris Lees that resumes here and on the splits / ratings alone should be taking this out. He last raced over the 1200m at Canterbury Park back in June where he was never really given a chance from out the back and wide when they ran their legs off up top. He’s had a few nice trials to lead him back into racing, has genuine speed late and if he can overcome the first up condition, which he has in the past, he wins this.

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.
  • Warwick Farm track bias skews towards mid barriers and outside runners on distances 1200m+
  • Chris Waller is the top trainer at Warwick Farm, with a 14% win rate from 180 runners in the last 12 months and has over 10 runners at Warwick Farm tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my tips

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.
