ProLays: Wednesday 25th January 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 25th January below.


Racing Watch – www.racingwatch.com.au 

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Hawkesbury Race 2 #7 Gloriette

Walter Says: “I simply think Gloriette runs into a smart horse here in Storm Force who is an exceptional type that comes back off a throat operation and has trialled very strongly. Gloriette went fairly in a strong race resuming before tiring very late. She can be improved but still looks up against it today and worth risking at the short odds”


Champion Bets – www.championbets.com.au 

Nathan Snow – @snowbet – Hawkesbury – Race 1 #5 No Pushover

Snow Says: “Ex Kiwi with solid old form, but has done little to impress me in seven starts here. Improved a little when having favours in front and still weak late at Kembla last start. Gets a good run in front again, but the chasers won’t be too far away and a couple of them have good turn of foot. Looks unders at current price ($3.75).”


Punting Form – www.puntingform.com.au

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Pakenham – Race 1 #7 Sister Sylvia   

Baker Says: “Resuming from a spell over 1400m in a small field. There is unlikely to be any real pace in this race, which could result in a sprint home. Sister Sylvia could be considered the ‘class’ runner in this race, but has not demonstrated any late ‘power’ running ability compared to some of the others. Is a short priced favourite in early markets and worth opposing.”


Queensland Trials – www.queenslandtrials.com.au

Chris Nelson – @qldtrials  – Gold Coast – Race 8 #6 Slydini

Nelson Says: “Genuine wet tracker who won’t get anything near that today on a Good 4 rated surface, which will firm up further as the day, wears on. Unplaced at all eight Good track starts to date yet he’s opened up as favourite in the market this morning. Punters were obviously taken with his last start third here in Saturday grade however, as you would expect, it came on a Slow 6 surface. Happy to take it on.”


Horse Racing Professionals – www.horseracingprofessionals.com.au

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff  – Gold Coast – Race 1 #5 Milly Muncher

McMurray Says: “Was plain at her first start at Toowoomba and had every chance last start leading at Eagle Farm in slow time. She will have her hands full beating Junction who was strong winning a Gold Coast barrier trial and beating a couple of smart 2YO’s in the process. Happy to oppose Milly Muncher at a price of around $2.50.”


racebk – www.racebk.com

Ben Krahe – @racebk_com – Wangaratta Harness – Race 7 #6 Moon Ovr Manhattan

Krahe Says: “First up from an eight month spell, this talented filly has to contend with the wide draw which isn’t ideal around this tight 800m circuit. Throw in a couple of Bernie Kelly stablemates inside of it and you have to take it on if it’s anywhere near flip of the coin odds.”


Rick Williams Racing – www.rickwilliamsracing.com

Rick Williams – @rwilliamsracing – Ballarat – Race 4 #1 Belcrest Lady

Williams Says: “Rates only fairly on our KPI rankings and doesn’t justify the current price. Generally races back in the field and will need lots to go right today from barrier one with the rail out 11m from the 600m.”


Nadia Horne Racing- www.nadiahorne.com

Nadia Horne – @NadiaHorne – Morphettville – Race 2 #1 Infinity Queens

Horne Says: “Up against some handy types in this small field and yet to win around this track in eight attempts. Is likely to settle midfield, with those with a stronger turn of foot likely to settle in prominent positions.  Would need to improve on recent attempts to warrant the current percentage in the market.”


Macbet- www.macbet.com.au

John McLeod – @macbetjohn – Gold Coast – Race 7 #1 Hotel Coste

McLeod Says: “Hotel Coste is stepping up in distance here today and I believe he struggles to get 1200m, so the 1400m looks a real problem.”


Racetrack Ralphy – www.racetrackralphy.com.au

Ralph Horowitz – @rtralphy – Ballarat – Race 7 #6 Our Vidia

Horowitz Says: “One of the three favourites the market has identified in the small field, and a big part of why he’s short in the market. The reason I want to take him on is a last start “Saturday Caulfield fourth” which I believe has been overrated. There he showed some early speed, but just nothing late with the 37th best last 200 of the day at the end of 1100m, and his lack of late strength at the end of 1100m has to be a query.

“El Rada should sit outside of him pressuring and showed good glimpses of talent in her first prep, winning here with a big last 800m. Backed it up with a fifth in a very solid Ballarat Cup Day at this track/distance, prior to being out bobbed in a fast Warrnambool 1200m. Written Era should be sitting right behind him and she genuinely went to a new level last prep and off a 63 day freshen should come to play. In addition, if Amaretto brings back her best first up she can win.”
