Get the latest LAY nominations for Saturday  9th December below.


Peter McCormack (WA)

Ascot Race 1 #10 Street Fury


McCormack Says: “Last start winner of a moderate midweek event who faces a much deeper race here. Winning chance, but is under the odds for mine.”


Ray Swannie (VIC)

Pakenham Race 2 #6 Whyouask


Swannie Says: “Drawn inside and always gets back in the field which is not ideal. Will need plenty of luck coming from the back and is a risk at $4.00.”


Kevin Saber  (VIC)

Coming Soon


Jonathan Walsh  (VIC)

Pakenham Race 3 #7 Fontein Lad


Walsh Says: “Has come up favourite in what looks to be an open field. He has been beaten by others in the field and can be a bit of a bridesmaid.”


David Dwyer (NSW)

Rosehill Race 1 #1 Gongs


Dwyer Says: “Talented filly who bolted in at Canterbury beating a Saturday winner by five lengths. However, is top weight drawn wide in a classy field at Rosehill and may not be able to lead easily. At $2.20 I am happy to see how good she is.”


Barry Cook (NSW)

Newcastle Race 1 #1 Rugosa Rose

Cook Says: “Even though her horses are airborne at the moment, we’re going to take on the lady off the turf here.  This 4yo mare looks very plain and a month between runs looks far from ideal.”


Steve Walters (TAS)

Pakenham Race 7 #2 Grey Lion

Walters Says: “Always finds one a little better and expect that to be the case again. The top weight De Little Engine was massive last time and can only strip fitter.”


Norm Oke (VIC)

Pakenham Race 5 #2 Chamois Road

Oke Says “I think this runner has come up short in the early markets. Has been racing consistently but faces a stiff field here with black type performers all around him. Currently around the 4-1 mark and others appear better value to me.”


Curly Seal (SA)

Morphettville Race 3 #2 Hussybay

Seal Says “Up in class, back in distance, risking at $2.10.”
