Bookies’ Bag: On Course Bookmakers’ LAY Nominations Saturday 22nd October


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 22nd October below.


Moonee Valley (Friday) Race 5 #5 Golden Spin

Walsh Says: “First up today in a race that he’ll have to push hard to lead. Drawn widest over 955 is not ideal either so who knows where he’ll end up in running. Happy to lay him at 2/1.”


Moonee Valley Race 6 #1 I Am A Star

Swannie Says: “Has come up very short in early markets. This is an even contest with plenty of colliding form lines. Not convinced inside draws will be as favourable for Cox Plate Day this year.”


Moonee Valley Race 6 #1 I Am A Star

Oke Says: “Returned to form in the Thousand Guineas but she becomes a big risk if the track is soft or cut out. She’ll settle midfield on the fence and need the heavens to open. Looks under the odds to me.”


Moonee Valley Race 7 #1 The United States

Saber Says: “Was on a Cups path so keen to lay him off an injury break first up back to the mile against a field of rock hard fit gallopers in pretty handy form. Will settle last which won’t help either. ”


Morphettville Race 3 #14 Sweet Varden

Seal Says: “Likely to need this one first up and confident she’ll be better suited over longer trips. Will get back on the park track and looks a good lay at $3.50 in early betting.”


Ascot Race 6 #6 King River

McCormack Says: “No huge knock on this progressive horse but $2.50 in early markets is too short. Up in class and has drawn the outside gate over 1000m which leaves him no option but to go back. There are a couple of speedsters in Hot Goods and Agachar Cruz who will be rolling up in front and Pike will have a bit of ‘traffic’ to content with. That said ‘traffic’ have some ability so this runner will have his work cut out for himself.”


Moonee Valley (Friday) Race 7 #2 Chautauqua

Walters Says: “Went against him last start and despite copping interference I thought he was entitled to finish off a lot stronger. He’ll be buried the fence in a race that looks likely to be a leader dominated affair.”


Moonee Valley (Friday) Race 7 #2 Chautauqua

Cook Says: “Not convinced he’s come back as good as he has in the past. Looks a tough assignment from the inside gate in a hot field. He’ll receive no favours from his rivals and we expect him to drift from $2.50.”


Randwick Race 4 #7 Sir Plush 

Dwyer Says: “Has won four of nine for Bjorn Baker but Saturday grade is a whole new experience. Is almost a month between runs which is a negative and I’m prepared to lay him at the price ($2.70) given the depth of the field. ”
