Bookies’ Bag: On Course Bookmakers’ LAY Nominations Saturday 12th March


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 12th March below.


Flemington Race 2 – #4 Revolving Door

Walsh Says: “Looked to have plenty in his favour in the run last start. $3.60 in early betting looks under the odds with competitors coming out of Group and Listed races. Hot Dipped also crosses the Tasman sparking interest.”


Flemington Race 2 – #4 Revolving Door  

Swannie Says: “Lucky winner at his second career start at Sandown in a midweek event. He won’t beat Seaburge on that performance and this race looks to have four or five winning chances. Looks a good lay at $3.80 in early markets.”


Flemington Race 9 – #7 Petrology

Oke Says: “Has not won since November 2014 (8 starts). Concede he is dropping back in grade but he’s also yet to win over 1400m in six starts. Happy to take him on at $6.00.”


Morphettville Race 3 – #2 Capodecina

Seal Says: “Bad value at $3.00. Not in his best form, always gets back in his races and the final nail in his coffin is coming back in distance from 2250m to 1950m.”


Ascot Race 1 – #2 Recoiled

McCormack Says: “Keen to get stuck into the shortest priced favourite of the day. I’m expecting Rhino’s Lad to kick up and hold Recoiled out at the start, creating a different scenario to when Recoiled led and controlled the pace on a leader biased track on debut. $1.70 in early markets looks rock bottom in a small but even bunch of Sprinters.”


Ascot Race 4 – #1 Muskets At Dawn

Burrows Says: “Last start winner from the powerful Simon Miller stable. Confident it won’t get an easy time early with more pressure on paper than last time. I’ve marked Outlaw Pete a clear and short favourite, he’s been knocking the door down, placing at his last two starts. He can finish best here off a hot tempo.”


Flemington Race 9 – #2 Tried And Tired

Walters Says: “Has not won since December 2014 (13 starts). Concede he drops in class and appears well weighted but this looks a deep race with plenty of winning chances. He always seems to attract support at skinny odds and has somehow opened $4.60!”


Rosehill Race 1 – #1 Hartnell

Cook Says: “Was slightly disappointing first-up when he had the box seat and I thought he was entitled to run a place. Despite the scratching of Pemberley we still think it’s a race of several winning chances and think he’s no value at $1.70.”


Rosehill Race 1 – #1 Hartnell

Dwyer Says: “Thought his effort first up in the Chipping Norton Stakes was only average. He started second favourite behind Winx. Had every favour in running and made no ground in the home straight. Looks a great risk at the price and doubt this is his Grand Final.”
