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


Warwick Farm: Race 3; #1 Zaragoza Down Arrow

I feel this horse is way too short in early markets, he has looked okay at the trials but I would rather side with race experience here.

Sandown: Race 6; #5 Zoupurring Down Arrow

I have never had the same opinion of Zoupurring as the market and as a horse who is 1/7 in his career, he is relatively exposed vs the likes of Call Him Iggy, Spirit Beast and Thunder Award, who all appear on the way up.

Balaklava: Race 4; #2 Base Of Fire Down Arrow

Had decent form last prep but hasn't really shown up this prep and has been switched stables/owners. While he does have a good record here he's never won in 8 attempts on a firm/good surface.


Rockhampton: Race 5; #7 Blue Ocean View Down Arrow

Blue Ocean View has crafted a neat start to his career winning three from four starts. The son of Fernando Bale faces his toughest task tonight and appears very vulnerable at a short quote. He draws the widest he has in four starts and has to contest with Lucky Garcia drawn inside him who has speed and likes to use the track. I can't see Blue Ocean View crossing Lucky Garcia in the early stages and I'm unsure where he gets to from there. He isn't a bombproof dog and he's going to need to be one tonight to win.

The Meadows: Race 2; #4 Whodat Shanlyn Down Arrow

Whodat Shanlyn has been a real tease lately. She is motoring home in races but making too many mistakes early. But I saw enough here last start that she doesn't have much heart, she landed in a forward position and had every chance to get on the bunny but pulled out when the going got too much for her at the first turn. Then came again late to tease you for next time. She's not going to get me again on a Back Bet until she gets over more ground so until then a small Lay bet is warranted.
