Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to some familiar midweek suspects with bumper cards set for Rosehill racecourse and Sandown Hillside racecourse this Wednesday and I have thoroughly run through each of the cards and picked out my best betting spots. As such, there are full length free horse racing tips posted on our site and in addition to those tips there is also an exotics tips page on the site and our recently launched daily multi bets tips so be sure to check those all out. As for this article I have picked out my best bet and best outside chance of the day across the two of them. I’ve also 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: Rosehill - R3 - #1 - Yarrawonga

Yarrawonga has to rate highly here for the Waterhouse and Bott camp after the way he has been going this campaign with two wins and a close placing in four runs this time in. His last run saw him step up to this trip at Warwick Farm and handle it very well when taking over in the straight and holding on for a solid win. I think he shapes up well now for this hard fit and in form.

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 - R3 - #8 - Into You

Hard to knock Into You for the Keating stable off the back of two runs to kick his career off where he has hardly put a foot wrong in either. His debut run saw him run home very well into the placings over the 1300m at this course before stepping out three weeks between runs at Ballarat and despite laying in in the straight he drew clear of them well in the last 200m to win very nicely. Should have further progression third up and shapes up well here.

Stats and Insights

  • It has been noted by stewards and sharp punters recently that being on pace and close to the rail has been the best place/places to be at Rosehill in recent times, a track that is known to change every couple months in terms of bias so take good note of that.
  • 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.

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.
