Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to some of our premier tracks in Queensland and Victoria with belter nine race card set for Geelong racecourse and a seven race card up north at Eagle Farm and I have run through both of them extensively and posted full length free horse racing tips on our website and also an exotics bets article so be sure to check those out but in this we focus on our overall best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline 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: Eagle Farm - R2 - #2 - Central Park

Central Park looks like a well placed favourite for Stephanie Kendrick and I am keen to have something on him approaching hard fitness third up here and after going so close last time out. He didn’t record the greatest of overall times there but he was held up for a run for a while and when getting clear air he clocked awesome closing splits. I think he looks very well placed here now to go one better.

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: Geelong - R8 - #8 - Queen Of Deels

Queen of Deels has only had three career starts but stepped out onto the Synthetic for her last run before a spell last prep and broke the maiden tag then in good fashion. She was 12 weeks between runs then and it was an impressive way to shed the tag. Her two career starts prior were both sharp placings on the turf so I think that she will be strong resuming here.

Stats and Insights

  • Eagle Farm has little barrier bias as the track has quite even wide turns and as such it is good to look for promising backmarkers for the long straight
  • The Geelong course proper is known as a track that gives every horse its chance as the circumference is 2043 metres with a straight distance of 400 metres
  • Anthony and Sam Freedman are some of the top trainers in Victoria and they send forward not that many runners tomorrow to Geelong but the ones there look very astutely placed so watch for them.

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.
