Best Australian Horse Racing bets in Australia on Friday morning
ANOTHER BUSY DAY DOWN UNDER! Let’s head into the weekend on a high. Plenty of winners lined up hopefully. Best of the racing from Cranbourne. Overnight Double pays 5/1!
Alongside our best bets we have race-by-race bets below the main bets if you want to know what we fancy on the rest of the cards (just scroll right down to the bottom).
NAP – Best selection of the evening
Race 6 Port Macquarie 5.15 Always Written Off (11/8)
Promising type who made a perfect start winning by a head on debut having made good ground up from off the pace over 1200m here back in the summer; likely to be a lot more streetwise now and fit from two easy trial wins.
I think it was a good move from connections to give ALWAYS WRITTEN OFF a bit of time to mature as he did look quite raw on debut. His class got him home in front but I’m expecting to see an improved horse now with two easy trial wins to set him up for this. He is one to keep firmly on side and can make it 2-2 with Koby Jennings in the saddle. Bay of Bengal is a decent yardstick who should make him work but with just the 2 wins from 27 starts he is surely vulnerable for win purposes? Highbury was in good form when last seen and also has to enter calculations but the potential the fav brings to the table would have to concern backers of the latter as he is starting to look a bit exposed already.
NB – Second best selection of the day
Race 2 Cranbourne 7.45 Star Smash (11/8)
Good looking chestnut who has got better with every run and went down less than a length at Wangaratta last time; further improvement to come should see him in the winners enclosure for the first time here.
This looks a very winnable race and I’m keen to stick with STAR SMASH for Simon Zahra and Jamie Mott. He is improving and only missed narrowly last time. With further progress he should take a lot of stopping here. He should enjoy going back up slightly in trip and looks to tick a lot of boxes to me. Age Of Innocence was only fourth last time but was only actually beaten just over a length. That was the same race the selection finished second in so there isn’t a great deal between them but I don’t see why the latter will reverse that. Letzxcel is next in the betting and while he shaped better last time he still needs to improve and might be better with more time and experience on his back.
Australian Daily Double
The Australian Daily Double consists of both the NAP and NB and is a great way of covering our two best bets of the night to maximise profit. They run at Port Macquarie and Cranbourne in the early hours of Friday morning.

We’ve gone through FOUR cards again on Friday morning so here’s what we’re backing (just scroll down).
All our selections can be added straight to your bet365 bet slip (just click the orange links)
Don’t miss our Australian Notebook Double overnight! These are two horses that have caught our eye in previous runs that we think will go close. Usually a bigger price than the Daily Double.
Here you will find our Daily Lucky 15! It includes both Notebook runners, the Eye Catcher and Value Tip. These are some of our strongest bets of the day combined to try and land that big win.
We also have an Each Way Double Down Under overnight. If both place at least we should still bank some profit. Pays 45/1!
The Aussie Mega Acca is back again overnight. Includes some of our best bets (NAP & NB) combined to try and land that big win. Pays 14/1!
