Best Bets of the Day

Check out the free horse racing tips and best bets for Wednesday's racing at Warwick Farm and Bendigo. On Wednesday, Warwick Farm is rated a Soft 7 and the current rail is +3m the entire way. While at Bendigo, there's good conditions for racing as it's rated a good 4 and a balmy 15 degrees. Let's get into it! 

Best Tip: Perennial #2 Warwick Farm R5

Last time out at Rosehill, Perennial was right up there with the leaders and put in a solid effort. He showed great speed and battled on fairly well. This time, I think he's got a more favourable draw, which should give him a better shot. With that advantage, he's definitely among the dangers and one to watch closely. Perennial had an eight-week break before his last race at Rosehill, where things just didn’t go his way. He was presented in good form but became unsuited in transit and didn't place. But don’t let that unplaced performance let you down - he’s got the potential to bounce back strong as the favourite on Wednesday. In his last start, Perennial was the $4 favourite and ended up finishing fifth, four lengths behind over 1100m after being right in the thick of things around the corner. He's shown he has the ability to be a serious contender and with a bit more luck and a better trip, he’s got a real shot at taking this one.

Best Roughie: Freedom Escape #1 Bendigo R4

Freedom Escape has been putting up a solid run in his two runs this season. He's definitely looking stronger and ready for this longer trip, in my view. Last time out, he made a late surge and finished a close second over 1715m at Geelong, just half a length behind the winner. Now, coming into this race third-up from a spell, he's in great shape. He's been placed in both of his runs back and I think this race doesn't look any tougher. Freedom Escape is definitely one to watch and could be hard to beat. He goes on top for me as the best roughie of the day.

  • The Bendigo Racecourse has chutes for the 1100m and 1600m that sees runners go around one full 180 degree turn and generally sees rails in runners go over the best at these distances.

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.
