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


Randwick: Race 4; #1 Mars Mission Down Arrow

MARS MISSION will carry a big weight in this race and on a heavy track. It's a different set up to BILL THE BOXER who carries weight in conditions that suit but MARS MISSION has previously done his better work on dryer track. Given this set up I am against him today.

Sandown: Race 3; #3 Loco Down Arrow

Being against a Price/Kent Jnr runner first-up is always fraught with danger and Loco undoubtably has the talent to be winning this race but first-up with the big weight and underwhelming jumpouts, I've got both Matriarch Rose and Hard To Cross ahead of him in my market.


The Meadows: Race 6; #8 Minister Mentor Down Arrow

Minister Mentor was impressive at Bendigo last start where he clicked through the gears nicely and got up on the line. He had plenty of space in that race and I don't like the set up here. I could see him getting put into the car park at the first turn with all the pace and wide runners in the race and that's enough to warrant a Lay bet.

The Meadows: Race 9; #8 Beach Bourbski Down Arrow

Even with the smaller field, Beach Bourbski could be posted wide here and may have to cover some extra metres which could prove costly late. Recycled has been in good form and You Done is more than capable of winning this. At the likely short price I'm happy to take on Beach Bourbski.
