Get the latest LAY nominations for Saturday 28th April below.


Warrnambool Classic (Greyhound) – #1 Lightning Frank 

Walsh Says: “With the time honoured Warrnambool May Carnival next week why not find a lay there! With a massive three days of racing and a huge greyhound meeting on the Wednesday night I am happy to take on the odds on favourite in the big race at the dogs. Lightning Frank has a mammoth local following with a local Western District trainer and group of owners, he’s drawn the cherry in the final and will start short. He was slow to begin in the heats and was also slow out in the Australian Cup final at the meadows. With odds on a likely scenario I am happy to risk with these recent box manners. ”


Caulfield – Race 5 #1 Doubt I’m Dreaming

Swannie Says: “Looked good at Moonee Valley where leaders went crazy and gave themselves no chance. Top weight and odds on I’m prepared to risk.”


Caulfield – Race 3 #11 Mr Sneakers

Oke Says: “Seven weeks between runs dropping 1400m back to 1200m. He has never raced at Caulfield previously and has come up a mile under the odds at $2.70.”


Caulfield – Race 9 #11 Fastnet Latina

Saber Says: “The wet track is a major concern as all four wins have been on Good rated tracks. It’s a Heavy 8 (Friday) and may not get any better than a Slow 6. Up in grade and third start at 1600m are other reasons for concern.”


Morphettville – Race 8 #2 Anaheim

Seal Says: “Back in distance from a mid-draw and will be giving away a start to Grand Chancellor and Screamarr who both looked suited here. His best is on a bone dry track so will oppose at $3.30.”


Ascot Race 5 #2 The Celt (Place)

McCormack Says: “Multiple winning 2yo and early 3yo who’s from plateaued last campaign although it was in a listed and group company. First up here without a trial and a 3kg claimer on for the first time I am prepared to take it on. It opened favourite but is drifting towards each way odds so I will lay it for the place for a big collect!”


Eagle Farm – Race 4 #2 Snitzkraft

Cook Says: “Looks to be a high pressure race and he’ll leading them on a testing surface from what the local trainers are saying. I think he’s under the odds and will be a risk late with a few capable ones behind him.”


Eagle Farm – Race 4 #1 Ours To Keep

Cook Says: “Wasn’t overly impressive in his trial leading up to this race so there’s a strong possibility that he hasn’t come back as good as he was in his first preparation. Is $3.00 in a solid field so inclined to risk.”


Hawkesbury – Race 2 # 1 Serena Bay

Dwyer Says: “Is a spruik horse after a big win at Goulburn on a wet track. Had every chance last start and I’ve marked it bigger than $1.90. Plenty of improvers in the race so I’m happy to lay it back to a dry track as odds on favourite.”
