Best Bets of the Day

Midweek racing returns to Canterbury Racecourse and Doomben Racecourse for some exciting and competitive midweek meetings in solid grades and there are a handful of astutely placed runners for the top stables which I think are standouts amongst some of the more interesting races of the meeting. I have run through both cards and picked out my best betting spots across the cards and also across our Aussie betting sites / betting apps to secure the best odds and even more value for these picks. Often bookies are running promotions as well for midweek racing and as such I have outlined some of the promotions running tomorrow across our betting sites. Follow me below as I run through another exciting midweek meeting!

Best Tip: Canterbury - R3 - #8 - Princess Rayaa

Princess Rayaa is going to be very hard to beat here for the Maher and Eustace camp. She ran for the first time in twenty five weeks last time out a fortnight ago at the same track and trip that she goes out at today and finished just behind the placegetters there in a luckless and tough run. Natural improvement second up should carry her very well for this assignment. Tim Clark jumps aboard which is a plus and she is free running which should see her in good stead from the inside draw where she can slide forward and lead or sity handy. Happy to be in her corner.

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: Doomben - R7 - #11 - Kermantic

Mick Dunn puts forward Kinetic who is stepping up to this grade looking very well poised to complete the hat trick on the bounce coming to this track for the first time off the back of two dominant wins in BM58 grade. The fist of which was a super classy effort which saw him posted wide all run and still had plenty in hand to salute dominantly before going to Murwillumbah where he raced keenly to get the lead and it was a walk in the park for him from there, clearing the field by a few lengths and never being in doubt. He strikes a proper challenge here but I expect him to have what it takes to be competitive.

Stats and Insights

  • Canterbury Racecourse is a much narrower racecourse than the majority of the other NSW courses, as such it favours rails in runners and those that can be up on the pace for the majority of its distance ranges due to this tight turning aspect.
  • Doomben Racecourse is a small track relative to the other forefront tracks in the country with a circumference of 1715m and a straight of only 350m. For distances less than 1600m it is almost imperative that they are near the speed as there aren't many furlongs to make up in the home straight.
  • It is generally much easier to bet at Doomben at these local meetings / out of season meetings as during the season we see mostly horses on the road with form from different states and tracks, as such it positions us well for this midweek meeting to pick up a few winners.

Best Racing Promotions

Traditionally, promotions have been the primary means for bettors to gain an edge over bookmakers. These promotions prove beneficial by providing a safety net in case your chosen runner fails to win. 

Playup stands out amongst betting sites by frequently offering the advantage of refunding your bet with bonus bets for selected races on midweek and Provincial racing days, providing you with a second or third chance. Coupled with their favorable odds, Playup currently holds the top position in terms of promotions for Australian racing.

However, if you are seeking other betting apps that offer racing promotions  for this week it is worth looking at some other Australian bookies. On our onlyracing.com.au website we have a Punterspal review, Vicbet review and Palmerbet review which include the promotions that these betting sites frequently offer.

Promotions tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
