Bookies’ Bag: On Course Bookmakers’ LAY Nominations Saturday 23rd April


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 23rd April below.


Caulfield Race 8 – #9 Sheidel

Walsh Says: “Meets another capacity field of Colts & Geldings and has come up favourite against Group & Listed performers. More gear changes a concern and will be midfield in the ruck with better ‘run on’ horses around her. $4.60 looks short with the added query of how the track will play, rail out 12m.”


Caulfield Race 5 – #1 She’s Miss Devine

Swannie Says: “Good win last start but sharp rise in weight with an extra 5.5kg. Add the rise to 1300m and she’s no good thing at the price.”


Caulfield Race 5 – #1 She’s Miss Devine

Oke Says: “Rises 5.5kg from her last start win and importantly meets Telopea 3kg’s worse off. Untried beyond 1300m so very keen to take her on around the 2/1 quote.”

Kevin Saber (VIC)

Caulfield Race 3 – #5 Raw Impulse

Saber Says: “Weir import back off a four week freshen. Rises in distance and up 3kg in weight. Happy to lay for those reasons and expect Bantry Bay to run a big race at double figure odds.”


Morphettville Race 8 – #8 Super Cash

Seal Says: “Respecting her Sydney form and know she has serious ability, but finds a very hot fillies race here that is certainly no ‘gimme’. Rock bottom at $2.50 so expect to see her drift heavily.”


Ascot Race 1 – #1 Dainty Tess

Burrows Says: “Looks unsuited from the outside draw and only accounted for moderate opposition last start so can’t have her at $2.00. A few well-bred gallopers here that have trialled well enough to win. Thought Oliver’s Travels was a big danger after a total forgive last time in.”


Rosehill Race 1 – #3 Reincarnate

Walters Says: “Looking for the Waller runners to control this race and make it hard for James McDonald on Reincarnate who might find himself posted wide if they all kick up inside him.”


Rosehill Race 6 – #10 Soft After

Cook Says: “She only won a weak Fillies & Mares class one at Newcastle last start so we’ll be laying her around the $3.00 quote given the depth of this field.  Expecting good support for both Unequivocal & Parraay at good each/way odds.”


Rosehill Race 1 – #3 Reincarnate 

Dwyer Says: “Is odds on after winning three on end and has James McDonald aboard here. Will be risking given the rise in grade, drop back in distance with a query over the form of his last three wins.”
