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 20th June below:

Winning Edge Investments –

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff  – Echuca Race 7 #10 Shalwa

McMurray Says: “Opposing the early favourite. 3yo filly first up on a wet track meeting some tough seasoned sprinters in Comrade Ned and Liberty Song. Happy to be against.”

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Ipswich Race 1 #3 Meaner

Baker Says: “Awful set up for the gelding today. Maps poor getting back on the inside. Will need a stack of luck. Even if he gets luck in the run, he still won’t be good enough to compete with the better credentialed runners in this.”


John McLeod – @macbetjohn – Ipswich Race 6 #5 The Overdraft

McLeod Says: “The Overdraft was able to win a weak on pace bias race last time – will find it tougher here from the wide gate and speed horses drawn inside him.”

Ben Krahe – @benkrahe – Kilmore Race 1 #6 Stefsbest

Krahe Says: “Good winner here several starts ago when it lead. However, the five horse (Loyola Trios) ran a strong third from a worse barrier and it draws inside it this time around. Plus, to make matters worse the Emma Stewart stable has the two favourites in the race. With Stefsbest going up in grade, I can’t see it winning.”

Paul Daily – @PaulD01  – Ipswich Race 8 #6 The Ice Knight

Daily says: “NZ who has had three runs here. His first at Doomben saw him well beaten when outclassed and starting at big odds $44 BSP. His two subsequent runs saw him well in the market and advantaged by the pattern at Caloundra before fading last start at the Gold Coast. Today the blinkers come off and he gets a tongue tie at his eighth run this preparation. Whilst he is a winning chance in an open race the early fixed odds quote of $3.20 makes him the one to bet around.”

Winning Edge Investments –

John Lawson – @Johns_Analytics – Ipswich Race 8 #6 The Ice Knight

Lawson Says: “Came over from NZ with some handy form and had a crack in the Fred Best Classic where it ran last but then failed twice in its own grade. Is drawn to get a nice run but it’s a horse that keeps finding its way into the stewards’ report, and those sorts of horses can be good lay propositions, especially at a price like the $3.50 it is this morning.”


Champion Bets –

Trevor Lawson – @lunchandpunt – Echuca Race 4 #6 Scoliaro

Lawson Says: “Maps to possibly set back inside here which looks a negative. racing honestly but doesn’t win out of turn. Seems short odds in what looks an even race.”


Racing Watch –

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Canterbury Race 1 #10 Task And Purpose

Walter Says: “Pace assisted on debut, this bloke finished off solidly enough. From another awkward draw over the short trip, he is likely to give them a start again today. Promising first starters engaged and another runner that was unlucky on debut should present stiff opposition. Unless they roll forward – he looks a solid risk at the early short odds.”

Racing Rant –

Marc Lambourne – @justideal – Canterbury Race 7 #12 Sharpness

Lambourne Says: “Back from Saturday Mares when hampered by a slow lane. Well seasoned but form from past 2 lacks substance & she herself lacks tactical speed”

Dickos Mailbag –

Jack Dickens – @dickosmailbag – AWAY
