It’s A Dundeel Heads 2012 Victoria Derby Betting Market

New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel is the clear favourite for November’s 2012 Victoria Derby (2500m) after impressing in his Australian spring campaign so far.

The Murray Baker-trained three-year-old is unbeaten from four career starts, including three in Australia, and has been installed as a $3.80 top elect for the three-year-old staying test.

The son of High Chaparral will run in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on Saturday and was last seen winning the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) on September 22.

Trainer Murray Baker confirmed after the Gloaming Stakes win that the Victoria Derby will be the major spring goal where he will attempt to mirror the feat of the Baker-trained Lion Tamer who took out the event in 2010.

“I think he’s a promising stayer and should run the Derby distance,” Baker said.

Next best in the market, and the only other contender currently under double figures, is Kabayan ($9.00) who got his spring back on track when dominating the Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) by two lengths on Saturday.

The three-year-old is highly rated by trainer Gai Waterhouse but failed to make an impact the start before in the Golden Rose.

It may be called the Victoria Derby but there are no Victorian horses in the top three of the betting market, with David Payne-trained colt Honorius ($11.00) occupying the third line of the market.

Honorius has signalled plenty of potential so far this spring with a third-place finish in the Ming Dynasty backed up with a second in the Gloaming Stakes.

The top Victorian chance according to the market is recent Caulfield winner Hvasstan ($12.00) who sits ahead of well-known colt All Too Hard ($12.00) and Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra-trained gelding Costa Nova ($12.00).
