With the opening Victoria Derby Day race at Flemington less than an hour away, big money bets are starting to come in on runners across the board shortening the odds, and here the Races.com.au team report the latest news on the market movers and where the best vale Derby bets can be found
Flemington Race 1 – Carbine Club Stakes
- #1 Skilled – $2 Luxbet
One of the biggest movers has been Number one in Race 1 – Peter Snowden’s well-backed colt Skilled.
After opening at $3.20 equal favourite with Mr Chard, the bets have poured in for Skilled to win the Carbine Club Stakes and he is now into $2 at Luxbet.
Hard to beat and continuing to shorten, now is the time to get behind Skilled!
Flemington Race 6 – Victoria Derby
- #4 Smokin Joey – $10 Luxbet
The marquee race on today’s card is of course the $1.5 million Victoria Derby and while Retrieve and Rekindled Interest are the two favourites in the odds, punters seeking more value should follow the money and look towards Smokin Joey.
Lee Freedman’s well-bred colt is a big mover still at great double figure odds to win the Derby.
Tip is he will improve with a gear change today, he is in from $13 to $10 and we recommend getting on his odds now before word catches on!
Flemington Race 7 – Myer Classic
The big fillies and mares feature of the day is the Myer Classic where glamour mare Typhoon Tracy is back to defend her title.
She opened short at $2.40 and the punters have continued to take her. She is now into $2.10 at Luxbet and don’t think it will stop there.
One to follow in the Myer Classic is the three-year-old Thousand Guineas winner Yosei. She has been rock solid in the market, backed in from $5.50 to $5. This morning the bookies have been taking lots of money on her and she is an excellent light-weight chance.
Flemington Race 9 – AAMI Business Insurance Stakes
- #10 Demerit – $4.60 Luxbet
The closing race of the day is Race 9 and this morning some of the largest Derby Day bets have come in for Demerit in this one.
Another from the stables of Snowden, Demerit is in ideal form and has been heavily backed from $6 into $4.60
