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


Tamworth: Race 9; #1 Villa Treville Down Arrow

Laying VILLA TREVILLE at her current short price. She was good last prep and can certainly win this, but I'm not keen to take the shorts with a few question marks. 1st up here today with a big weight and only off the one public trial. Just feel a bit short for a runner that I feel will have improvement to come this prep.


Geelong: Race 1; #3 Muck Around Down Arrow

I expect Muck Around to be kept very safe on the Exchange as he has four placings to his name. Even with some unknowns here I'm not convinced Muck Around has much will to win and would prefer him drawn wide anyway.

Geelong: Race 6; #7 Lone Rooster Down Arrow

Lone Rooster hasn't raced since late March. His two starts prior to that were a fall at Sandown Park and a 7th at Bendigo. The 460 metres at Geelong can be a tough run, especially first up. Asperitas and Urith Bale are rock hard hit and will take beating if they get a soft lead.

Geelong: Race 8; #6 Boracay Storm Down Arrow

Boracay Storm had plenty of luck last start in a race that had plenty of trouble. Bun Volcano could drive him mad in the early stages and he could react negatively which is what we need for this Lay bet to be successful.

Geelong: Race 10; #1 Chilli Sal Down Arrow

Chilli Sal has been costly lately and these have been from optimum wide draws. Now she goes to Box 1 and this does not suit her at all as she wants to get to the outside. She may find a stack of trouble here and that's enough to Lay.
