Three Word 2011 Victoria Derby Form Guide

Saturday sees a capacity field of keen three-year-olds trying out the 2500-metres for the first time in the Melbourne Cup Carnival’s richest race for their kind, the $1.5 million Group 1 Victoria Derby, and while we have an odds-on favourite in this year’s edition with Manawanui, their price is easing and there are plenty of chancy rivals to defeat, so below the Races.com.au team have our exclusive 2011 Victoria Derby form guide in three words.

Manawanui

Manawanui is the easing 2011 Victoria Derby favourite with the distance the only query

Due to jump at 3:00pm (AEDST) as Flemington Race 6 on Saturday, the AAMI Victoria Derby isn’t just a test of class, it is a test of stamina and in a field this size luck goes a long way too.

Topping the Victoria Derby odds at Luxbet is six-time winner Manawanui at $2.50.

While they are the rank horse here with the form, draw and status, there is always something to suggest an upset.

For example, as a last-start Vase winner history is against Manwanui, and the last favourite to salute was Efficient at $2.40 – an eerily similar price to this year’s top pick – back in 2006.

So will Manawanui buck the recent trend against the favourites on Saturday, or will one of their lesser-heralded opponents go the distance in an upset Victoria Derby result?

Having gone through the full form on all of the runners, the Races.com.au crew has summed up the chances of all of this year’s hopes below in our concise Victoria Derby 2011 Three Word Form Guide.
