Victoria Derby Day Tips

Saturday’s Victoria Derby has drawn a fantastic group of three year olds with many showing the potential to win the $1 million race.

Although Derby favourite Shamoline Warrior has drawn barrier 9, his trainer Mark Kavanagh is not worried about the horse staying wide as he is confident the colt will manage to get up on the inside.

Shamoline’s biggest threats for Saturday’s race will be barrier one and two horses Monaco Consul and Rockferry.

Monaco Consul recently won the Spring Champion Stakes and proved his capabilities after sprinting up on the inside at the 250m mark while battling through mud and wet conditions.

If the track conditions for Saturday remain in perfect condition, Monaco Consul will be able to pick up speed early to be in the lead and maintain a steady pace right through the run.

Fellow New Zealander Rockferry has drawn the ideal spot of barrier two and punters should not use his run in the Geelong Classic as a reflection of his true racing ability.

Rockferry finished in third place behind Southern Skye in the event after being caught up in traffic throughout most of the race.

Towards the final 200m mark however, the colt did manage to storm home which indicates that if he can pull out quickly in Saturday’s race he will definitely finish in the top four.

There has been a lot of hype regarding Geelong Classic winner Southern Skye however if the track is too heavy Saturday, his chances of taking the lead will be significantly reduced.

Extra Zero’s bad run in last weekend’s AAMI Vase may not have been the colt’s fault yet is did cost him the top spot on the betting market.

Hopefully his new jockey Nash Rawiller will give the horse a better chance at showing his true potential in Saturday’s 2500m race.
