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


Canterbury: Race 3; #4 Bolero Belle Down Arrow

Was very disappointing first-up and although the step up in trip is suitable I feel there are horses going better than her in this race.

Moonee Valley: Race 5; #4 Dakota Lee Down Arrow

We see the return of the Alice Springs horse Dakota Lee, first-up for the McEvoy's off 500+ days with speed engaged everywhere in this race, she's a very easy horse to be against.

Oakbank: Race 4; #9 Her Excellency Down Arrow

This is a very open race. Feel that Her Excellency has come up quite short in the market for a horse who is yet to place in 5 starts and did look green last time at Murray Bridge. While she looks to have the potential to improve today, she needs a few things to go right at a tricky track so I would want a bit more value to get involved.


Wentworth Park: Race 2; #4 Ando Prince Down Arrow

Ando Prince heads to town off a good win at Goulburn. That race was not deep at all and this is a lot harder. Add to that, I'm not sure he was that keen to put away Chit Chat on debut. I think he'll be under the odds and I'm not convinced yet. Happy to take on. The 8 will be hard to beat from the draw but likely to be very well found

Wentworth Park: Race 6; #6 Canya Catch Me Down Arrow

Expect the class to rise to the top here. 7 should cut and run and be too good. 8 gets a nice cart into it. Looks a terrible map for the 6 and happy to take him on if odds allow


Melton: Race 10; #3 Royal Cadence Down Arrow

Taking on what will likely be the fav here in Royal Cadence. Think this race has a host of chances with a number of them being ok value. A winner last start leading but did get away with very soft early sectionals and does look more pressure here tonight which will make it vulnerable late.
