Australian Derby Betting 2012 Update – Sangster Market Mover

Big money has rolled in for Trent Busuttin’s reigning Victoria Derby winner Sangster to return to form with an upset win in the 2012 Australian Derby at Royal Randwick this Saturday, the one-time triple figure roughie the early market mover for the classic.


Sangster is the early 2012 Australian Derby betting market mover in from $101 to $41

Jumping at 3:35pm as Race 7 on Saturday, the $1.5 million Group 1 David Jones Australian Derby (2400m) field features 13 three-year-olds, Sangster to wear the No. 1 saddlecloth from barrier seven with Jim Cassidy aboard.

Cassidy rides Sangster for the first time in the Savabeel gelding’s 12-start career to date, the top jockey looking for his fourth Australian Derby winner following his success with Dr Grace (1990), Innocent King (1993) and most recently Roman Emperor (2009).

Third to Doctor Doom in last year’s Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick, Sangster enjoyed a sensational end to the spring running a close second to Sabrage – also running in Saturday’s Australian Derby as a $61 chance at – in the Norman Robinson Stakes at Caulfield before their close victory in the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington on October 29.

Sangster has been running below par this season, however, their best result so far being a third to Highly Recommended in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley.

Last start they failed to impress over the 2000-metres at Rosehill when crossing nine lengths away 16th to Laser Hawk in the Rosehill Guineas.

Gai Waterhouse’s smart Rosehill Guineas winning Artie Schiller gelding Laser Hawk shares favouritism in the early Australian Derby odds at with New Zealand Derby winner Silent Achiever, the duo paying $3.60 each to win on Saturday.

The genuine Australian Derby betting market mover, however, has been Sangster.

After opening at a quote of $101 Sangster is now into $41 in the latest markets.

They are also the only Australian Derby hopeful to budge from their original final field price.

Despite drawing double digits with barrier 11, Laser Hawk is still being tipped as the horse to beat on Saturday arvo in Sydney.

“We are not worried about the barrier,” Waterhouse said.

“He is a big horse that likes to roll along, it doesn’t make a difference to him.

“I can’t fault him,” she added.

“The 2400-metres is ideal and exactly what he needs.

“He’s been set for the Derby all along and the Rosehill Guineas was a very nice bonus to pick up along the way.

“He’s a rising star.”

Gary Hennessy’s New Zealand-trained colt Ocean Park, runner-up in the Rosehill Guineas last time out, is also well fancied in the markets paying $5.
