Get the latest LAY nominations for Wednesday 14th February below.

Meet the team of pro punters here

Winning Edge Investments –

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff – Sandown Race 7 #9 Montaser

McMurray Says: “Against the second favourite here, at the skinny quote of $4.00. Against it for a few reasons. Clearly have the favourite on top in Our Chinquilla, Montaser has had every chance last couple, is well into its first preparation, up in weight here and almost a month between runs.”

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Sandown Race 3 #1 Etah James

Baker Says: “Has been freshened up for 44 days and drops back from a 2800m race at Flemington to 2100m today (hardly ideal). Has never run particularly good times and is odds-on in the early markets, so I have to oppose her.”


Racing Watch –

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Wawrick Farm R7 #3 Raiden

Walter Says: “Talented type that has some quirks, his worst is usually a tendency to be ‘dicey’ at the start. He draws the inside gate here and will not want to be up to his old tricks or could find a very ordinary position in the run. Strong enough types drawn to have the momentum and he looks a risk at early price”


Racing Rant –

Marc Lambourne – @justideal – Warwick Farm 7 #2 Miss Liffey

Lambourne Says: “Returned with a brace at Wagga, but now too stale for the short course. Look for fresher rivals over the 1000m.”


John McLeod – @macbetjohn


racebk –

Ben Krahe – @racebk_com – Redcliffe Harness Race 9 #5 High On Montana

Krahe says: “Four trials and one race start in Queensland and has galloped four times. Gate five tonight with its two main dangers drawn inside means I must take it on.”

Ratings2Win –

Paul Daily – @PaulD01 – Ascot Race 1 #5 Al Capitano

Daily says: “Steps up to 1800m for the first time which seems ideal given he was able to make ground off a slow tempo last start over 1500m. That is what the market seems to have latched onto however there are a few negatives. Last time he made ground in the better part of the track which flattered his performance and he is from the Neville Parnham yard which is a massive underperformer across the board. Steven Parnham stays aboard and his profile as rider is poor. Whilst I concede he is one of the chances in this race his ratings profile combined with the trainer and jockey profile suggest that he should be much longer than the current $3.50 on offer.”

Dickos Mailbag –

Jack Dickens – @dickosmailbag – Sandown Race 3 #2 Ashlee Marie

Dickens Says: “Hard to understand why she’s so short in the market here. Rises in trip and what looks to be stronger company despite still in Bm78 class. Her best figures are at the mile and she wasn’t that dynamic last start.”

Winning Edge Investments –

John Lawson – @Johns_Analytics – Launceston Race 8 #3 He’s Rushin

Lawson Says: “A maiden contesting a Class 1 Plate but has run well over this course and distance in Class 1 company at his last two. It’s not much of a field but this runner is very short at $2.50 and I’ve got a couple rated higher so must oppose here.”

Champion Bets –

Trevor Lawson – @lunchandpunt – Sandown Race 4 #1 Aurum Spirit 

Lawson Says: “Inconsistent 9yo who ran well last start but hasn’t won since Dec 2016. Maps awkwardly back inside with inexperienced jock aboard. Happy to oppose it.”
