Lay bets are an offering unique to Betfair in Australia where punters can bet AGAINST a particular outcome.


Canterbury: Race 6; #6 Brynner Down Arrow 

LAY (WIN) #6 Brynner (WIN) for 0.5 units (Rated at: $9.00)

Has been up for a long prep and although continues to race well generally finds a few better. I would rather be with the lighter raced fresher horses in this race as they likely have more upside than him. He will likely settle last or second last and I am doubtful he will have a suitable run throughout to win the race.

Moonee Valley: Race 7; #9 Nokhbah Down Arrow 

LAY (WIN) #9 Nokhbah for 2 units (Rated at $4.00)

This race will be run in a slick clip and runners will need everything to go right. NOKHBAH did show good talent in her first prep and she looks to have upside, but the race map might get tricky for her. She has drawn a wide barrier and if she doesn't quite nail the start, she may find herself behind a wall of horses with speed drawn in and outside of her.


Geelong: Race 10; #8 Silver Brute Down Arrow

LAY (WIN) #8 Silver Brute for 1.5 units at less than $2.40

Silver Brute needs to make zero mistakes here in order to win this and he has been making some mistakes lately. Victa Tara is capable of exploding out and I think she can do so again here, she was first up last start so she can even improve on the clock on her 22.48 win. Silver Brute has gone quicker than that but is nearing the end of his racing career now and is a short enough quote to Lay.
