Pro Lays: Wednesday 14th June 2017

Every week on The Hub, professional punters from across the country will be nominating their LAY of the week.

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

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Sunshine Coast – Race 2 #1 Kings Legend 

Baker Says: “First up for new trainer Chris Munce and finds a heavy track for the first time and at 1200m. With only one trial over 840m I’m worried about his fitness platform against the likes of All Pluck who has race fitness on his side. In his first prep Kings Legend settled well back and finished off sharply in slowly run races that could have been a bit flattering in regard to assessing its true ability. At the early price I’m keen to oppose him.”

Queensland Trials –

Chris Nelson – @qldtrials – Sunshine Coast – Race 3 #6 Aderito (Place) 

Nelson Says: “We face a heavy track at the Sunshine Coast today, yet this Kelly Schewida trained runner has yet to win in seven heavy track starts and has come up early favourite. He had every chance two starts back on the Heavy when fourth. His recent performance at Ipswich was good on dry ground but despite only tackling a small field I think he’ll miss a place.”

Ratings2Win –

Paul Daily – @PaulD01 – Sunshine Coast – Race 5 #4 Guissola

Daily Says: “Second up here after winning in the best part of the track at casino. Steps from 1000m to 1400m which I don’t like and even though most of these are limited the current fixed odds of $2.30 make him a worth risk.”

Racetrack Ralphy –

Ralph Horowitz – @rtralphy – Sandown – Race 4 #2 Lady Lee

Horowitz Says: “Drops back to BM64 grade which she was last in two starts back here on the 10th of May when a plain fourth at $13. Last start third in Saturday company the run albeit with it being listed as having the saddle slipping and finding some traffic was flattered ‘data wise’ as the leaders dropped anchor severely in the mid-race. As such finishing ‘just’ 0.8 lengths from Saturday’s Flemington winner Pedrena shouldn’t be overrated on a like-for-like basis. She lacks early speed and is drawn barrier one on a day where the fence can be expected to give out, so at best Williams will need luck, to get through the big field and to find the best ground under the impost of 60kg.”


John McLeod – @macbetjohn – Sunshine Coast– Race 6 #2 Jackpot

McLeod Says: “Jackpot has the big weight on this testing track here. He won first up but was not that impressive, then plugged home at Ipswich. This is not a strong race but every one of the horses have some hope so happy to risk at the price.”

Racing Watch –

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Canterbury – Race 5 #1 Sangiovese

Walter Says: “Honest sprinter that just failed last time out at Hawkesbury. A better horse on top of the ground at 1000m for mine. Now drops back to 1100m, on a heavy surface, loses the senior rider and a race with a bit of depth, happy to risk her today.”

Champion Bets –

Nathan Snow – @snowbet –  Canterbury – Race 5 #8 Timing (Place)

Snow Says: “Improved second up placing but in much weaker grade. Has good natural speed, but gets tired late and the step up to 1100 is against it here. ”

Rick Williams Racing –

Rick Williams – @rwilliamsracing – Sandown – Race 7 #8 Yogi

Williams Says: “Nice staying type but will be near last here over 1600m from the wide draw. $3.60 is rock bottom with that in mind.”

Horse Racing Professionals –

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff  – Sandown – Race 7 #8 Yogi

McMurray Says: “Very good first up but clearly looking for further than the 1600m and draws to get back last and has no tactical speed. Looks a good lay for mine for those reasons against a few on pacers that are going pretty well.”

racebk –

Ben Krahe – @racebk_com – Melton Harness – Race 6 #7 Dynamite Ike

Krahe Says: “Has struck a very winnable race but I cannot get it anywhere near the price it’s likely to start. After 10 starts for only one placing is first up for one year and two months today and its trial only fair. Throw in a wide draw, and the longer journey and it looks a decent risk.”
