Bookies’ Bag: On Course Bookmakers’ LAY Nominations Saturday 24th September

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 24th September below.


Caulfield Race 8 – #2 Black Heart Bart

Walsh Says: “This is a strong race with multiple form line. Black Heart Bart has come up favourite and the speed map suggests that he won’t get as easier time. If you take out a ‘flip of a coin’ protest you’ve got the Australian Cup winner and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner from last season. Black Heart Bart will have to run one down and then hold the other off. The other query is 1800m. At $2.30 he has to be laid for something.”


Caulfield Race 2 – #5 Black Tomahawk

Swannie Says: “Consistent place getter but can’t find the line. Meets a stronger field Saturday and has gone up favourite for Craig Williams. He’s a good bookies horse.”


Caulfield Race 4 – #3 Pay Up Bro

Oke Says: “Has opened up ridiculous odds with the corporates sub $3.00. I can’t see a distinct class edge and have big concerns with the gelding rising from 1400m to 2000m.”


Caulfield Race 4 – #3 Pay Up Bro

Saber Says: “Has been in great form in weaker races over 1400m. The rise to 2000m looks a big problem here for starters and the only negative is going from synthetic to a grass surface which is bringing many horses undone when tackling Saturday’s races. This race looks an afterthought.”


Morphettville Race 6 – #10 Municipality

Seal Says: “Is second up meeting a stronger field in a city class event. Has drawn wide which makes the map very tricky. Looks a great risk at $3.30 in early markets.”


Belmont Race 3 – #10 Caiprinha

McCormack Says: “Bonny Be Good beat Caiprinha on its merits last start and this race looks no easier. Pike is airborne at the moment and I can’t see why his Elegant Blast, a two-time winner isn’t favourite in front of the maiden (Caiprinha) with only a kilo separating them at the weights.”


Rosehill Race 2 – #2 Allergic

Walters Says: “Staying race with only five starters and these races can be very difficult with ‘stop-start’ tactics. Not sure it will suit a horse that was slightly disappointing last start and is untried at 2400m.”


Rosehill Race 2 – #2 Allergic  

Cook Says: “Has come up favourite in a small field against horses that have good form at 2400m or beyond in the past 12 months. He’s unproven at the distance and we’re keen to oppose at less than 6/4.”


Rosehill Race 5 – #2 Divine Prophet

Dwyer Says: “Was unlucky in the Golden Rose and meets a similar field this time. $2.50 is short for a get back horse in a small field. Expect Impending and Good Standing to improve and settle more forward in running. Keen to take the favourite on.”
