Best Bets of the Day

Midweek racing is back at Sandown Hillside racecourse and Gosford racecourse for two belter cards and I have gone across them and picked out my best betting spots and then posted full length free horse racing tips and we also have an exotics tips article posted on our site where we are looking to pick up some more lucrative bets. As for this article we focus on another best bet and best outside chance of the day as well as outlined 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: Gosford - R4 - #10 - Rockin' Millie

You would have to think Rockin’ Millie gets the maiden win out of the way now at start number four. He has placed runner up in all three of his career starts and comes back to racing here since last August. He’s had a few sharp trials to lead him back into racing with the latest being a win at this course and I think he will be tough to beat here.

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: Sandown Hillside - R7 - #8 - Daily Bugle

Daily Bugle seems to have been set up very well for the win now. I am keen to see how she looks in the yard but all things being equal she is as good a shot as any in this field. She comes out of a 1100m race in Saturday company at Flemington where she really got going late to come from the back of the pack and power home to finish just outside the placings. I think that with Shinn aboard and the extra 200m she can run a better race here

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 has a wide turn from the 800 to the 400 compared to Lakeside which allows for runners to come on from wider that wouldn’t be able to on the Lakeside course.
  • Gosford has a 400m straight with the home turn being a long sweeping turn which gives runners time to position themselves for big runs in the straight.

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.
