Got The Faith To Back Niagara In The 2011 Victoria Derby?

It will take a fair bit of guts to back Niagara in the 2011 Victoria Derby at Flemington tomorrow, even though there’s no doubting the horse has bags of ability.

Indeed right now at online bookmaker Luxbet you can still grad $8.50 about a horse that without a doubt produced the best finish in the Norman Robinson Stakes.

$8.50 about a horse that previous to that won in an absolute canter by a full six lengths.

It seems ridiculous and there must be a catch, indeed there is, you have to bank on a perfect ride from jockey Nash Rawiller.

In reality there’s probably no other rider you’d like to have steering a horse from the outside gate but it’s going to be a huge ask for Rawiller.

Does he go forward and risk burning the horse out early? Does he ride for luck and get caught three wide? Does he bit the bullet and simply pull up at back but risk not getting clear until it’s too late?

These are the questions he has to ask himself and they’re the risk you need to consider if you’re planning on backing Niagara in the 2011 Victoria derby.

The payoff is that if he can jag a spot somewhere in the field that $8.50 quote from Luxbet instantly becomes worth at least half that.

If you’re looking for a horse with the class to challenge Manawanui he is it, if you’re looking for a horse to be strong at the death he’s it as well.

Indeed the only drawback to Niagara in the 2011Victoria Derby is that gate, so it’s up to you how much of a role you think it will play.

If you’re game and have the guts to follow through then do so now at Luxbet to score the best odds.
