Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Sandown Hillside racecourse and Canterbury Park racecourse for some massive midweek meetings and these are honestly the best I have seen in some time and am very much looking forward to tomorrow’s racing. On our site I have posted extensive free horse racing tips articles for both of the tracks as well as our inaugural exotics tips bets article so be sure to check that out for some potentially very fruitful bets.e In addition to those full length articles I have picked out my most confident bet and most confident outside chance of the day and have gone across the Aussie betting sites and found where you can get the best odds across our betting apps for these selections. Below the tips you will also find a small section on the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites. Follow me below for an awesome Wednesday of racing as we look to get some winners!

Best Tip: Sandown Hillside - R2 - #5 - Twin Perfection

Twin Perfection looks like quite a high class animal for Phillip Stokes and whilst we have quite a competitive field in this race with the three betting favourites all being separated by only a few cents, I think that he will be in this for a long way and there is a bit of value with him. He’s only been out of the placings in three of his ten career starts and has already picked up three wins. One of those came three weeks ago on the Pakenham Synthetic where he set fourth in the run and found a lane inside to drive to the front and power clear at the 200m for a soft win. He picked up a win two before then off the Synthetic at Pakenham so will handle the ground. He’s hard fit, flying, maps to be up on the speed and will be tough to beat.

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: Canterbury Park - R6 - #11 - Lancaster Bomber

I am a huge fan of the Robbie Litt trained Lancaster Bomber who put on an absolutely belter display earlier this year at Rosehill at double figure odds to launch over a stronger field than this and win well. He mixes his form a bit which is the query but we can only go by his last run which was in a Randwick Midway where he ran on very well to finish third behind Diamond Diesel. I think that off the back of that effort, with the quick turnaround, he likely shows up how he raced last time in Saturday company and he can speck at odds here. His splits off the back of that effort were very good for this assignment and he can settle anywhere and be strong late, the only query is how he shows up, I would be watching him in the yard pre race.

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.
  • Canterbury is a much tighter track than most NSW courses, giving significant advantage to close on pacers and those close to the rail in general. It also favours late rails-in-run horses due to the tight turning nature.
  • Chris Waller sends an army of runners to Canterbury Park tomorrow and is one of the top trainers at the course. I would watch for which jockeys are booked when he has multiple runners in a race to gauge the intent level from the stable on the horse.

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.
