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


Rosehill: Race 1; #5 Kirragirl Down Arrow

Was $31 on debut and the performance was okay off a slow tempo, however now J Mac goes on and she is $5 in early markets. There are some other lightly raced fillies in this race that have shown better promise and I feel the booking of J Mac is the only reason this filly is priced so short in the early markets.

Gawler: Race 6; #3 Call It Quits Down Arrow

Call It Quits is a last start winner, but steps up in grade straight away for this run now. He mapped to get a lot of favours last start which he needed when he was racing greenly in the straight last time. Maps to have a different race shape here that may make it slightly tougher.

Sandown: Race 6; #4 Vienna Vixen Down Arrow

Vienna Vixen has missed the kick at her last few starts, it all worked out at Pakenham last start but if she's slow away here, it's almost game over.


The Meadows: Race 5; #6 Mr Fahrenheit Down Arrow

Mr Fahrenheit scored a gutsy win here early this month in 30.19 where he showed explosive early pace. That win should be enough that he stays short enough on the Exchange. This map looks tricky with Distracting drawn underneath him who has a great mix of speed and strength. Bun Volcano may also ping the lids and head left and I could see her annoying Mr Fahrenheit, enough to warrant a Lay bet.

The Meadows: Race 6; #1 Confiscate Down Arrow

Confiscate will start favourite here and I'm prepared to take him on, just because of the inside draw. Even though he has won here from the same draw in 29.71, I'm not sure he is going as well now as he was in mid December and if he gets cramped up early I could see him finding trouble. He should be a short enough quote where there isn't much liability.
