Best Bets of the Day

Racing comes back to our premier midweek tracks with cards set for Randwick-Kensington racecourse and Sandown Lakeside racecourse as we look towards the big Autumn racing in both NSW and VIC and I have gone through both of the cards extensively and picked out my best betting spots of the day and in turn posted full length free horse racing tips on our site and in addition to those tips we also have this best bets article where I have picked out  a 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. There is also an exotics tips page and our recently launched daily Multibet tips page. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Wednesday! 

Best Tip: Sandown Lakeside - R4 - #3 - Tycoon Bec

You would think that Tycoon Bec just wins this after the way she has been running in higher grade than this. She stepped out in BM84 grade two runs back at Ballarat when running home very strongly to place second and then came back to racing off of a short three week break at Pakenham last start where she couldn’t get properly into the race from out back but still worked home well. She meets a softer field here, hard fit and ready to go over for her seventh win.

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: Randwick-Kensington - R2 - #8 - Impunity

Impunity looks like he is ready to start the career properly now for the Thompson camp after the way he returned to racing for his fifth overall career start back from a 15 week spell. He returned to racing over the 1400m at Warwick Farm where he came from deep in the run after jumping awkwardly to recover well and power home into fourth place. He shapes up well off the back of that run now.

Stats and Insights

  • Randwick is a very wide track with a good run-in that makes it one of the fairest tracks around. It’s hard to say backmarkers are advantaged, but they are the closest thing to advantaged at Randwick Racecourse
  • Sandown Lakeside has a similar dip to the Hillside 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 Lakeside has a smaller turn from the 800 to the 400 compared to Hillside which allows for runners to come on from wider more, this creates more of a shoot out effect.

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.
