2012 Australian Derby Form Guide in Two Words & Odds

The big race on a crack Royal Randwick program this Saturday is the Australian Derby 2012, and to help you pick the winning three-year-old out of the talented field of 13 below the Races.com.au team have their exclusive two-word form guide on the classic.

Running as Randwick Race 7 at 3:35pm, the $1.5 million Group 1 David Jones Australian Derby (2400m) betting markets at bookmaker.com.au are currently led by firming $3.40 favouite Silent Achiever.

Roger James’ smart Kiwi filly, who ran third behind $3.80 Derby second favourite Laser Hawk in her Aussie debut in the Rosehill Guineas, is out to secure the New Zealand Derby – Australian Derby double and go back-to-back for the fillies following the Australian Derby win by Shamrocker last autumn.

Along with Laser Hawk the other single-priced chance in the latest Australian Derby betting markets is then Rosehill Guineas runner-up Ocean Park who has been backed in from $5 to $4.60 at bookmaker.com.au.

While the top trio are dominating the Australian Derby odds upsets are not uncommon in this three-year-olds feature and there are plenty of genuine smokeys in this field including last start Tulloch Stakes winner Polish Knight ($13), lightly-raced maiden Ethiopia ($14), Tulloch runner-up Rekindled Alliance ($14) and Anthony Cummings’ up-and-comer Strike The Stars ($16).

Don’t have time to go over the full form and betting?
