Get the latest LAY nominations for Wednesday 25th April below

Winning Edge Investments –

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff  – Flemington Race 8 #1 Milwaukee

McMurray Says: “Against the second favourite here. After a few runs back would seem better suited up in trip but stays to the 1200m here in a very deep race. Early price around $6 looks well under the odds.”

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Randwick Race 4 #8 Velocita

Baker Says: “Won first up after receiving all favours in the run. Looks like it could get back worse than mid field here and we cannot get it anywhere near as low as the $2.40 in the early markets. Again, expecting it to drift in betting and we will be laying Velocita.”

Racing Watch –

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Randwick Race 7 #8 Beacon

Walter Says: “Godolphin runner with above average ability resuming here over the 1200m. Runs into a strong race here from an awkward draw and will have to put up a huge performance to justify his early quote.”

Racing Rant –

Marc Lambourne – @justideal – Randwick Race 2 #7 Pembroke Castle

Lambourne Says: “Waller 2yo off a letup; all favours last start in a restricted sales race. Not Keen.”


John McLeod – @macbetjohn – Beaudesert Race 5 #2 Suilven

McLeod Says: “Suilven is back in distance with the big weight here, been up a long time as well. Under the odds at $2.10.”

Krahe says: AWAY

Ratings2Win –

Paul Daily – @PaulD01 – Ascot Race 4 #1 Ouqba Jack and #6 Burning Magic

Daily says: “Have to oppose both these runners from the Neville Parnham stable who have a poor record first up and overall. If we examine the last 90 days they have only trained 1 winner from 34 runners resuming and over the last 730 days only trained 7 winners from 210 runners resuming for a loss on turnover of -53.54%. Whilst this is a weak race and either one of these can win this race on their best figures the profile of the stable must be factored into whether they can be supported. Currently they are $2.40 and $3.50 respectively and (close to those prices) laying both seems like a good gamble.”

Dickos Mailbag –

Jack Dickens – @dickosmailbag – Flemington Race 2 #7 Tatoosh

Dickens Says: “Pace looks ok early, expect some slow sections midrace. Tatoosh maps awkward and appears poisonous at even money. Whilst it won with style last start in Adelaide. It was a new career peak but not that’s not the best lead-in figure here. Fred Kersley Jnr from an awkward draw scares the life out of me. Quick defence was slaughtered last start and could bounce off that, he has a positive jockey change and a small SP edge over Tatoosh. Mask of Time has ability, been backed this prep. Expect he improves but well found early and there’s more genuine chances beyond that.”

Winning Edge Investments –

John Lawson – @Johns_Analytics – Flemington Race 6 #2 Astoria

Lawson Says: “Ran last in the Australian Derby last time out after being checked on straightening and then not getting a clear run. Previously, he was narrowly beaten by Levendi in the Tulloch Stakes and had good lead up form. In his one run at Flemington he ran third in the Derby when well in the market and third in the Geelong Classic, so he ticks a lot of boxes. However, he’s only won 2 of 14, has drawn awkwardly and has the currently hot or cold Craig Williams riding and at the current very short price of $2.20-$2.40, I’m happy to be against given I have him rated near $4.00.”

Champion Bets –

Trevor Lawson – @lunchandpunt – Flemington Race 1 #1 Berisha

Lawson Says: “Racing consistently over shorter trips. Form is not as consistent over this trip. Has plenty of weight, with its best runs are on tracks with give in them. Happy to risk at its current price of $4.80.”
