You’d be crazy not to back anything out of the Peter Snowden yard in last season’s juvenile races and in many ways that’s continued to the three year old series this season.
Darley will be out to assert their authority once again in the 2011 Victoria Derby at Flemington Racecourse tomorrow afternoon.
Their main hope and the hope of many punters is talented gelding Induna, a $4.60 chance with online bookmaker Luxbet.
It took him a little while to break his maiden, in fact just four starts back he ran 7th in a maiden at Hawkesbury.
How times have changed though and after running third at listed level at Rosehill he smashed his maiden at Gosford and then destroyed the field again in the Geelong Classic.
All up from his last two wins he’s won by a total of 10 lengths.
That works very well coming into a race like the Victoria Derby where class counts for plenty.
Another encouraging sign is that as the distance has been stepped up, so too has his results.
In fact while many horses come into this after running across 2000m Induna has run over both 2100m and 2200m.
That’s a huge advantage when the 2500m is the query held for nearly every horse in the race.
In reality then we have a horse here that has bags of ability, massive staying power and is trained by arguably the best in the business.
It’s hard to knock him and no doubt that’s why he’s had so much support with the smart punters at Luxbet.
