Lays of the Day review
James Beeson is quickly becoming punters' best lifeline, after he once again successfully potted two from two last Saturday.
Beeson has recently elevated the skill of laying a horse to an art form.
In fact since the beginning of the month, Beeson has successfully alerted punters to 9 false favourites from 10 lay selections.
This 90% success rate for November is nothing short of remarkable.
Especially considering that the average price for all of these horses is just a measly $2.74.
What an outstanding record and another reason why he's one of the bravest horse racing analysts in the game.
To find out which horses Beeson potted last Saturday, read on.
Or, to see which horses are in Beeso's firing line this week, read here.
His first lay last Saturday was the $2.15 fav Bam's On Fire in Ballarat Race 2.
Beeson couldn't believe the short odds here, given that Bam's On Fire was likely to be cast wide based on the speed map.
Even more incredible was that this mare from the Maher and Eustace stable got crunched into $1.85 odds before the race.
The mare went back from the gate before coming with a strong run.
But it wasn't enough to reel in the winner. She finished 3rd.
Beeson's second lay was Lucicello in Kembla Race 4.
He avoided punters to steer clear given the depth of the field Lucicello was up against.
Beeson also stated that the Waller/McDonald combination meant that the odds for this filly were unders.
Lucicello ran a good race to come within half-a-length of the winner, but could only manage 4th place.

For a recap of last week's best bets, read on.
Race 4: #1 Massimo
Boccardo was keen on Massimo after it ran a strong 1100 metres last time off the back of a quick tempo.
With a 3kg drop and William Pike taking the ride, Boccardo was understandably confident.
This confidence paid off.
Massimo saluted at $2.90 odds.
Race 5: #11 Uni Time
Boccardo liked the way Uni Time mapped, as he was likely to get the run of the race behind a hot tempo.
With bags of potential, Uni Time looked a great bet for Boccardo.
It all came together on race day, with Uni Time saluting at $3.80 odds.
Race 7: #1 Big Deep
Boccardo couldn't quite make it three form three, after this talented gelding just didn't make up the ground in the W.A. Guineas.
He still ran a solid race though, and finished 6th.
