Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to Sandown Hillside racecourse and Warwick Farm racecourse for some very high level midweek racing as we are well and truly into the group 1 races season and we see some high class animals who are resuming and some who are working towards Saturday grade and I have written full length Wednesday tips in which I have picked out my best betting spots on both cards with in depth reasoning and also posted exotics tips to try and pick up some more lucrative bets but in this article I have picked out an overall best bet of the day and best outside chance of the day and attached to them where you can get the highest odds across the Aussie betting apps / betting sites.  I have also posted a short section underneath the tips that includes the best promotions going around across the Aussie betting sites and that is worth checking out below. There are some insights right at the bottom of the article that should prove useful for betting at the tracks. Follow me below for another solid set of midweek meetings!

Best Tip: Warwick Farm - R4 - #4 - Lolly Yeats

sickLolly Yeats looks like one of the standout bets on the program at Warwick Farm and of the day in total. I am keen to have a stab at what is decent odds at the time of writing this on him. He rates a fair bit on top of this field and comes off the back of a win at this track / trip when stepping out at the beginning of this month after finding the lead / fence there and being far too strong for them when challenged to win well. He’s been given ample time to recover now for this and doesn’t take on too much weight. Will be in this for a long way.

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 - #5 - Rick's Cafe

I am pretty keen on the chances of Rick’s Cafe in the getout at Sandown. He  is a proven second up winner (3: 2-0-0) and comes into this off the back of resuming off of a long 34 week spell when he stepped out, being thrown into the deep end, at the beginning of the month at Flemington and chased nicely for a return from such a lengthy spell. He’s two from three second up, gets the booking of Hefel for this assignment and draws a nice gate. All signs point towards good things and I have a sneaky feeling about him. Keen.

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.
  • Warwick Farm track bias skews towards mid barriers and outside runners on distances 1200m+
  • Chris Waller is the top trainer at Warwick Farm, with a 14% win rate from 180 runners in the last 12 months and has over 10 runners at Warwick Farm tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my tips.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Promotions are an imperative aspect of horse racing betting and have traditionally been the primary mode of punters getting an edge over the  Aussie horse racing betting sites as you are essentially getting an extra shot at your bet that you wouldn’t traditionally be offered through promotions.

Punterspal, in the last few Saturday racing meetings, has stuck out to me amongst the Aussie betting sites that provide racing promotions and is one Australian betting apps I would look into, particularly when it comes to Saturday racing as we approach the Group 1 races season again this Spring.

On our site we have a Punterspal Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as other reviews such as Vicbet reviews, Palmerbet reviews etc 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.
