Every week at Betfair, On Course Bookmakers from across the country will be nominating their LAY of the week. 

Get the latest LAY nominations for Saturday 17th March below.


Ray Swannie (VIC)

Flemington Race 1 #4 Hear the Chant

Swannie Says: “Way up in class and drawn inside with plenty of early pressure spell trouble for the favorite. Risk at the odds.”


Kevin Saber (VIC)

Flemington Race 1 #4 Hear The Chant


Saber Says: “Some doubt at 1200m up in class. Andrew Mallyon not as effective in town and odds very prohibitive.”


Jonathan Walsh  (VIC)

Flemington Race 2 #2 Scarecrow


Walsh Says: “Scarecrow had everything run to suit last and I believe there are some improving types in the field this Saturday that will give him a run for the money. At a short quote I am happy to take on.”


David Dwyer (NSW)

Rosehill Race 4 #1 Written By

Dwyer Says: “Blue Diamond winner who has won all three starts. In a classy field and first time Sydney way, I’m happy to oppose at even money.”


Barry Cook (NSW)

Rosehill Race 4 #1 Written By

Cook Says: “Looks a smart type but his GF is next week & is meeting a couple of nice. horses here so at its early quote happy to oppose.”


Norm Oke (VIC)

Flemington Race 2 #2 Scarecrow

Oke Says: “McEvoy trained gelding who is in good form. He’s come up very short this week and the 3.5kg rise in weight seems significant to me and enough for me to question whether he should be so short.”


Peter McCormack (WA)

Ascot Race 2 #3 Gee Boss


McCormack says: “78 rater in a 90+ listed race. Went up $1.70 in early markets which is a great compliment to her but shows a lack of respect for her open class rivals. I think she will start the other side of $3.00 and struggle in this company.”


Curly Seal (SA)

Morphettville Race 4 #1 Eperimentation

Seal Says: “Trialled OK, but will get lot pressure up front, risking at $2.10.”
