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


Wellington: Race 4; #3 Tokyo Run Down Arrow

Tokyo Run does come back in class from a much tougher race at Rosehill and this is easier, but he maps tricky from the wide barrier and drops back in trip. Perhaps if the luck doesn't come late he may be in an awkward position.


Wentworth Park: Race 4; #3 Showman Jack Down Arrow

Happy to risk the 3 here. He was one of my fav dogs and he's been a beauty but is his best past him? Been out for a while but he hasn't won since July last year. He's going to have to come from midfield as there's good pace in this race and at the price, he's worth taking on,

Wentworth Park: Race 6; #5 Cawbourne Red Down Arrow

Laying 5 from the awkward draw. Good pace in 4-6-8 and if he doesn't get the start right, he could be in early trouble.

Wentworth Park: Race 7; #7 Wild Sylvia Down Arrow

Cracking heat and I'm taking on the 7. She's flying but will need to come out underneath the lids to cross this field. Looks under the odds to me. Winning chances are 1-2-4


Melton: Race 8; #7 Perpetuity Down Arrow

This is the one fav on the card that I have to take on purely because of the map. Can be foolish taking on this stable but this filly will not be finding the top so will have to work very hard at some point to win. Willing to take a set against her as likely to be short fav from this stable.
