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 21st April below.


Ray Swannie (VIC)

Caulfield Race 2 #3 Widgee Turf


Swannie Says: “Drawn the outside barrier will have to go back to last and I don’t think he runs a strong 1600m. Looks a good risk at the odds.”


Kevin Saber (VIC)

Caulfield Race 5 #1 Nature Strip


Saber Says: “Obviously well weighted, however relatively short spell (3 months), stable and jockey change, inside barrier are all potential negatives. A couple of other very promising ones in Deprive, Vainstream and Metson a knockout, make the odds-on Nature Strip unattractive.”


Jonathan Walsh  (VIC)

Caulfield Race 7 #12 Property


Walsh Says: “I query why this horse was scratched last time in, in a lesser field than this. His trial leading up was only fair and the map Saturday could see him rearward against fence. Happy to lay.”


David Dwyer (NSW)

Randwick Race 9 #7 Osborne Bulls

Dwyer Says: “Has very impressive record (6 wins from 8 starts) and is a very good horse. However, it will get back and need luck and at $2.30 seems a good risk in this field which is by far the best it has met.”


Barry Cook (NSW)

Randwick Race 4 #3 Holy Snow


Cook Says: “Think this horse is a query at 2000m and at its early quote seems well under the odds at $3.50 in a field with a few better suited at the distance.”


Norm Oke (VIC)

Caulfield Race 6 #1 Cliff’s Edge

Oke Says: “This horse looks to have already run its grand final this preparation running in multiple stakes and group races since February. Back to 1600m here after campaigning in Sydney over 2000m. On class it stands out but at the ridiculous quote and under the outlined circumstances I am laying it.”


Peter McCormack (WA)

Ascot Race 5 #3 Jingtang

McCormack says: “Going better than he ever has but isn’t going to be good enough to match it with a couple of smart ones here. $3.50 is way too short.”


Curly Seal (SA)

Morphettville Race 2 #2 Whispering Brook

Seal Says: “Every chance last start and this race appears no easier, risking @ $2.00.”
