2012 Australian Derby Betting Roughies

2012 Australian Derby Betting Roughies

There are two triple figure roughies in the early markets for the Australian Derby 2012 this Saturday at Royal Randwick, with the Scott Aspery-trained unknown On Every Level and Trent Busuttin‘s Victoria Derby winner Sangster.


Victoria Derby winner Sangster is one of the $101 roughies for the 2012 Australian Derby on Saturday

Of the 13 three-year-olds accepted to contest the $1.5 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) on the weekend two are at $101 in the current bookmaker.com.au markets with Sangster and On Every Level.

Savabeel gelding Sangster may have won the Victoria Derby over 2500-metres at Flemington last spring, but their form this time in has left a lot to be desired.

Most recently they were seen running a well beaten 16th behind Australian Derby betting co-favourite Laser Hawk ($3.60 @ bookmaker.com.au) in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) on March 31.

On Saturday Sangster will jump from barrier seven (of 13) with Jim Cassidy aboard for the first time.

Cassidy may not have ridden Sangster before but the great hoop has certainly been aboard his fair share of Australian Derby winners.

This year Cassidy shoot’s for his fourth victory in the time-honoured showdown having previously saluted aboard Dr Grace (1990), Innocent King (1993) and Roman Emperor (2009).

The other $101 long shot is then Outback Prince gelding On Every Level who has also drawn wide in gate 12, Jay Ford to ride.

A winner of just one of their seven starts to date On Every Level ran seventh behind upset winner and fellow Australian Derby rival Polish Knight ($11 @ bookmaker.com.au) last Saturday when beaten three and a half lengths in the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill.

“We made a plan to ride him for luck in the Tulloch but it didn’t go our way,” Aspery said.

“He didn’t get to stretch out how we would’ve liked but he still got to the line fairly strongly.”

Warwick Farm-based Aspery remains hopeful that On Every Level will hit better form when they step up to the mile and a half (2400m) for the first time on Saturday in the Derby.

“Physically he is still six months away but we’ve had a plan all along that he’d be a Derby horse,” Aspery said.

“He obviously deserves to be (big) odds on Saturday because it’s Group One-class but we’re happy with him.

“I know he’s definitely going to run the 2400 metres right out.

“That’s why I’m not worried about taking on the likes of Laser Hawk because I know my horse will run (the distance).”

Saturday will be the first Group 1 runner for On Every Level’s connections, Lighthouse Racing Syndicate, Aspery rating the event better than when he trained Flight Of Pegasus to run fifth behind Manawanui in last year’s Golden Rose.

“I know the connections are excited because it’s their first Group One runner and I’m pretty excited as well,” he said.

“It’s a great occasion for us.”
